Artifacting in dark scenes ripped from Blu rays


Standard Member
Hi there, please don't hesitate to point me in the right direction if I'm not in the right place for this question.

I've been experiencing consistent issues with the video I rip from blurays. Generally speaking the video quality is excellent and I'm pretty happy with it, however I whenever there is a particularly dark scene I've noticed a lot of pronounced artifacts.

Can anyone provide some advice on how to correct this issue?

My current process looks like this:

Ripped with MakeMKV v1.8.0

Transcoded with Video Monkey
Quicktime, Encode Only (Normal Speed)
16.8 Mbps 23.976FPS H.264

Encoded with Cineasset
JP2k FOR DCIENMA bitrate - 250Mbs
Color converted from RGB to XYZ
Import as 24/30fps

This is all being completed on a Mac Pro 4 with 16 gigs of ram
