[FFmpeg-user] libx264 ignores bitrate

Hey list,
I am new and maybe this has been discussed and it is a typical newbie 

I try to encode an image sequence to a h264 mp4 file. Whatever I do my 
bitrate is ignored:
ffmpeg -i audio.mov -i input%05d.jpg -s 1280x720 -b:v 8000k -acodec copy 
-vcodec libx264 output.mov

I tried several things that I found in different blogs (minrates, 
maxrates). But without success.

FFMPEG VERSION: 2012-07-08 git-299387e
Windows 7

Hope you can help.

Many thanks in advance
