HC encoder, release 016

Thanks for the feedback, most issues are solved now:
- hangs while running minimized
- wrong GOP size for some fixed GOPs
- artifacts at the right side of some frames

The artifacts were caused because motion vectors could point out of the frame by half a pixel, some decoders don't like that...

Still one issue left, using Avisynth DirectShowSource with the WMV decoder sometimes won't read the stream correct during the second pass, it can skip frames or even jump back.

HC016 latest release at: http://hcencoder.bitburners.com/

It is a great work till now. When I find time I'll play a little with Your new version Keep up the good work.

Mirror for HC016TR2_16-09-2005



P.S.

If You need help with the prediction mode, tell me

Take a look at AutoCQ

So there will be a completely new GUI but that will take some time to finish...

But thanks to all comments/feedback the HC016batch version is now final:

http://hank315.dyndns.org/HCbatch_016.zip

- fixes the playback on some strict players (Pioneer)
- pulldown issue is fixed, streams can be pulldowned for PAL and NTSC GOP lengths
- updated 1 pass CQ_MAXBITRATE run, should result in better prediction
- autoq2 matrix replaced with avamat6 and avamat7 (both by Amnon82)

Some of this is already in the latest test releases but not all.
For those who use DBD-RB with HC, just replace and rename the exe file with this one.

I take it jdobbs will put this into his RC6b downloads as of now, or will he wait for RC7 or 1.1?

I've had no problems with the new test release

One small feature request for 016 though: would it be possible to set the path for the database file or possibly create it in the same directory as the encoded video? At the moment I've got all my video tools on a partition which doesn't have much free space left (only about 500MB), and sometimes the dbs file gets so large that the encoding doesn't proceed to the end of a long video.

Is there a GUI version, like in HC 0.15?

Thank you,

I'm sure a GUI version will be available as soon as the official 016 is released. Besides, the commandline version isn't hard to use.

Hank, could you check whether HC writes correct information about colour matrix used ? I mentioned that problem to you and it's unclear whether the culprit lies within DGIndex' or HC's code.

<edit> Solved! Thank you very much for your assistance, Hank!

No, not yet.
But if this batch version runs pretty stable I will create a GUI version.
All development I do is always done on the batch version, it's faster for testing purposes, also it's easier to maintain because it needs less windows stuff.

I've been using HCbatch 15_A with DVD Rebuilder Pro. with no problem myself. But I always look forward to Hank315's latest and greatest version of his HC encoder.

Hank,

Just FYI...

I've backed up a few Discs so far:
All of Season 1 of "LOST"
All of Season 2 and 3 of "24"
5 movies of "Movie only"

I have had absolutley "NO PROBLEMS" whatsoever yet
except that the final size are "ALL" 4.31Gigs!
Just letting you know my experience so far with test release 2.

Regards,

You mean, using HC with DVD Rebuilder? 4.31 is Rebuilder's default target setting, so it's not HC's fault. If using Rebuilder isn't what you meant, sorry 'bout that!

Correct...I'm using HC with Rebuilder. 4.31 is good for me...I thought it was 4.33 the default. Thanks for setting me straight.
I love HC!

Thanks Hank for all your hard work

Sure thing! Actually, Rebuilder's set for 4.31GB for safety. Certain projects will tend to run over that boundary + or - a few MBs. CCE will sometimes oversize a bit, too. That's probably where you've been seeing a few 4.33GB filesizes from. Jdobbs just wanted a safety net to keep people from having to totally re-encode because of oversizing. You can manually tweak this so that you're using more of the blank disk... but doing so only adds a very marginal amount of bitrate to your project and the difference isn't noticable just by watching it.

HC's becoming more impressive with each release. It's making me wish I'd have saved my money when I decided to buy CCE a few years back. Where where you then, Hank?

it will be ready when its ready. hank315 has a lot going on in real life at the moment, seems we all do this time of year( ) plus there are all sorts of advanced things he is looking at for HC. since there is no way to be exact it is often better to not put a release date and then have people asking where is it.
