x265 encoder keeps crashing for no reason
Hi, I'm trying to figure out why the x265 encoder keeps crashingPlease, read the 'Infos needed to fix&reproduce bugs,..'-sticky before you post about a problem.
Will look at it this evening after work.
Does the Vapoursynth Preview Work?

Cu Selur
Yes.  It's the x265 encoder that's crashing.
Hybrid aborts with " x265 output: x265 [error]: unable to open input file" while calling:
"C:\Program Files\Hybrid\64bit\Vapoursynth\vspipe.exe" "C:\Users\Jason Edades\AppData\Local\Temp\encodingTempSynthSkript_2024-01-29@22_21_03_1910_0.vpy" - -c y4m | "C:\Program Files\Hybrid\64bit\x265.exe" --input - --fps 24000/1001 --output-depth 12 --y4m --profile main12 --level-idc 6.2 --limit-modes --no-early-skip --no-open-gop --opt-ref-list-length-pps --weightb --ref 6 --lookahead-slices 0 --crf 10.00 --opt-qp-pps --cbqpoffs -2 --crqpoffs -2 --limit-refs 0 --ssim-rd --psy-rd 2.50 --rdoq-level 2 --psy-rdoq 10.00 --dynamic-rd 2.00 --aq-mode 1 --sbrc --vbv-maxrate 12000000 --vbv-bufsize 12000000 --deblock=-1:-1 --selective-sao 0 --sao-non-deblock --no-repeat-headers --fades --psnr --ssim --range limited --colormatrix bt709 --sar 1:1 --output "C:\Users\Jason Edades\AppData\Local\Temp\2024-01-29@22_21_03_1910_02.265"
normally this hints that something is wrong with the Vapoursynth script:

core = vs.core
# Import scripts folder
scriptPath = 'C:/Program Files/Hybrid/64bit/vsscripts'

But since you wrote that the Vapoursynth Preview works fine the next thing is that:
1. some over active anti virus or similar tool is interfering
2. some memory issue which is only triggered when encoder and decoder use the ram

Do other encoder work?

Cu Selur
I tried other encoders.  It still crashed.
Okay, so it isn't just a x265 issue.
a. setting your temp folder to a folder output of your AppData folder
b. disabling virus scanners or similar (<- especially when H is not a local drive)

Cu Selur
It's still crashing randomly.
Randomly, during encoding of the same or different sources?
Ranomly sound like some memory or asm issue or heat issue.

Cu Selur
Different sources
Does it also crash if you simplify the script?
