Command line: x264.exe --demuxer-threads (LOGICAL_CORES) -o NUL SVT_1080p50.mkv
Test sequence has been created using following uncompressed files:
crowd_run_1080p50.yuv park_joy_1080p.yuv ducks_take_off_1080p50.yuv
Due to large size of uncompressed footage (~7 GB) test sequence has been also compressed
