    Wasn't able to see any measurable performance difference on the systems I tried, so I didn't bother uploading it.

    From the ffmpeg AV1 page:
    SVT-AV1 supports film grain synthesis, an AV1 feature for preserving the look of grainy video while spending very little bitrate to do so. The grain is removed from the image with denoising, its look is approximated and synthesized, and then added on top of the video at decode-time as a filter.

    The film grain synthesis feature is invoked with -svtav1-params film-grain=X, where X is an integer from 1 to 50. Higher numbers correspond to higher levels of denoising for the grain synthesis process and thus a higher amount of grain.
    I haven't tested that feature myself though.

    ofc when possible I just use av1an with aom-av1-psy
    Ah, good to know. I think that not too long ago the -crf switch wouldn't work with libsvtav1, which is why I was using -qp. It looks like it does work now, so it would probably be better to use -crf 35 rather than -qp 35. I'll have to do some testing and see how it compares.

    ffmpeg -i infile.mp4 -c:v libsvtav1 -qp 35 -preset 4 -c:a libopus -b:a 128k outfile.mkv

    It does go fairly slow, and if you want it to go MUCH faster you could change "-preset 4" to "-preset 8". However, if you take two video files and ALT+TAB between a single frame in them, it is possible to see a subtle loss of detail between 4 and 8. So I generally settle on 4 just for the slightly better quality.

    Depending on the video though, it is possible to get some massive space savings and sometimes shave several gigs off of a single video file with no real noticeable loss in detail.

    It's even worse than some HEVC encoders.
    you probably shouldn't judge by these, they are often flawed and extremely biased, it's easy enough to tell, SVTAV1 is the lowest fidelity of the bunch, but it's typically faster AND smaller then HEVC at a given size until you hit svtav1's (or really all of the encoders right now) quality ceiling, but that ceiling is typically higher then most people will care.

    svtav1 is nice, it can do real time encoding (being more then 30fps and often 60fps) at 1080p at decent qualities, a shame it only supports 4:2:0 however
