Summary of Filters

HandBrake contains the following filters:


Detelecine removes comb artifacts that are the result of telecine, a process for converting film frame rates to television frame rates.


Deinterlace removes comb artifacts from the picture. Yadif is a popular and fast deinterlacer. Decomb switches between multiple interpolation algorithms for speed and quality.

The following Deinterlace tunes are available:


Denoise reduces or removes the appearance of noise and grain. This can improve compression efficiency and create higher quality video at smaller file sizes. Overly strong Denoise settings may damage picture quality by discarding detail.

NLMeans is a high quality denoise filter with a cost to speed. Use where quality is more important than speed. HQDN3D is an adaptive low-pass filter, faster than NLMeans but less effective at preserving fine detail.

For NLMeans the following Denoise tunes are available:


Deblock reduces blocky artifacts caused by low quality video compression.

Chroma Smooth

Reduces chroma noise, rainbows, and other prominent visual artifacts. Useful for resolving various color-related issues, especially with lower resolution content from analog sources, e.g. poor quality DVD and VHS sources. The blurring/smoothing algorithm is the same as used by the unsharp filter.


Grayscale removes the color component of the video. Often referred to as Black & White video.


Colorspace + tonemap filter. Can change/tonemap the colorspace of the video into one of the following:

If this set to “Off” then HandBrake will keep the colorspace of the video.
