We'll now go through the steps you would need to follow setup the codec for two pass encoding.
Two Pass Encoding :
The steps for two pass encoding are as follows:
Set the Profile @ Level settings
Set the Zones settings
Set the Quality preset
Set the Other options
Set the Encoding Type setting to "Twopass - 1st pass" and adjust the relevant settings
Go back to your encoding software and either start the first pass encoding, or prepare to setup the next pass options
Set the Encoding Type setting to "Twopass - 2nd pass" and adjust the relevant settings, including the Target size
You can now return to your encoding software and finish the encoding
