The most important patch is x264_2pass_vbv.diff
http://jfl1974.free.fr/HDDVD/Patch.rar

This patch active really vbv control (not perfect anyway) in multipass mode. There are patch from Gabriel Bouvigne for Bframe improvement. There are patch from Dark Shikari for quality improvement. There are interessing patch for fgm.

ugh.. cause patching is a pain. have to do alot by hand (patch.exe didnt like the new motion search patches.. some patches edit the same info.. etc) . Besides, the only real changes were in 674/675 and those were vbv related where the current vbv options are sufficient for hd . I'll redo them w/latest 675 later..

i'll diff out the differences of 675 from 669 and patch my patched file

I fact like I say the current Rate Control work very bad with vbv compliancy if average bitrate is close to max bitrate in multipass mode. x264_2pass_vbv.diff produce a very improved Rate Control in multipass mode.

Just an fyi.. i think this is known but just in case... B-pyramid is NOT available for HDDVD standard content. b-pyramid is only usable for bluray with 3 b-frames where pulldown isnt required. (h264info intended only for hddvd pulldown)

3-b-frame/b-pyramid with hddvd may be an option on advanced content. havent been able to check that.

Is the patch source still valid on the web site? I've used it to fix the problem that interlaced coding never worked properly as the SEI block was missing for tff/bff. I want to post my slight mods back, but if there is a newer version then it will be out of sync.

i just put up the diff (4) that is used for 675. the only difference between it and the patch that was up prior to today is the trailing bits fix.

lemme shoot you another pm.

Thanks for that. I've tested my patch to your patch on the HD-E1 and interlace coding works perfectly now. basically if you select --interlace you get --nal-hrd + the correct pic_struct to support the field order --interlace gives you tff which is also supported by an alias (--tff) and if you say --bff then you get the opposite.

Thanks for your hard work... We can now do pulldown and interlace on HD-DVD standard

Here's your patch back with the interlace modes fixed. x264 always created frame pictures even when --interlace was selected, so didn't ever work in a standalone decoder.

As I mentioned --tff on the command line causes --nal-hrd + --interlace + the correct signalling in the SEI block. --bff has the same effect but with different field order.

I have tested on my HD-E1. works flawlessly

Can I do pulldown using x264 for a 23.976 720p stream? I am trying to get away from using h264info for the pulldown and I am intending on making an HD-DVD compliant 720p stream... Help!

Hi, I'm also having problems with 720p. Here is my (2nd pass) command line:

Code:
"C:\Program Files\x264_675a_pulldown\x264.exe" --pass 2 --bitrate 4000 --stats "D:\Projects\Trailers\ial720p.stats" --level 4.1 --keyint 12 --min-keyint 2 --ref 2 --mixed-refs --no-fast-pskip --bframes 2 --bime --weightb --filter -1,-1 --trellis 1 --analyse p8x8,b8x8,i4x4,i8x8 --8x8dct --vbv-bufsize 14745 --vbv-maxrate 12000 --threads auto --thread-input --sar 1:1 --progress --no-psnr --no-ssim --output "D:\Projects\Trailers\ial720p.264" "D:\Projects\Trailers\ial720p.avs" --sar 1:1 --aud --nal-hrd --pulldown 64
Notice I used --pulldown 64 to get 59.94 from a 23.976 stream; this is necessary because Scenarist only seems to accept 720p59.94. Disturbingly, Scenarist reports the time length of the stream as half what it should be. Also, when I author it and play it on my Toshiba, there is severe stuttering and audio dropouts. On the other hand, when I use a similar command line (except using --pulldown 32) for 480p or 1080p, I get perfectly smooth playback and audio sync.

Anybody have any suggestions?
