Are you talking about these presets?

Seeing those integrated in Cinelerra-CV would certainly be useful for 
me. :)

I agree. H.264 is the most-used consumer codec nowadays. When I first 
tried to export to H.264 I thought it was a problem with my ffmpeg 
version or something else.
Finding out that this is completely broken was a bit shocking.

Thankfully I didn't give up, that's why I found the tutorial from 
The AVLinux approach looks much more userfriendly, though.
