ReJig 0.5 Released

http://nic.dnsalias.com/ReJig.zip
http://nic.dnsalias.com/ReJig_src.zip (SourceCode)

Just wanted to get this release out, time is lacking and if I dont release it, then I wont get round to it before christmas. So it isn't as tested as I would like. And there is no documentation, although things are pretty straightforward.

By the way: Because of the files it creates, certain modes (like the auto Movie backup mode) needs large amount of space on a NTFS (win2000 and above) partition...

Ill update 0.5 to make it more friendly, bugfixing and documentation. ReJig 0.6 will be more like the commercial one click tools.

New Features:
  • Now has a DVD Authoring Mode very much like IFOEdit's
  • Now has a very simple wizard for doing DVD Backups
  • Lots of bugfixes, improved engine tweaks, etc

Cheers,
-Nic

ps
Special thanks to my work colleagues, especially Ian for doing the graphics

HDTV

Hi,

I couldn't compress HDTV MPEG-2 video, so I download the source code and looking at it, I found at ReQuant.cpp an If clause to exclude all resolutions except DVD standard.

Code:
else if (ID == 0xB3) // seq header
{
	LOCK(8)
	horizontal_size_value = (cbuf[0] << 4) | (cbuf[1] >> 4);
	vertical_size_value = ((cbuf[1] & 0xF) << 8) | cbuf[2];
	if (	horizontal_size_value > 720 || horizontal_size_value < 352
		||  vertical_size_value > 576 || vertical_size_value < 480
		|| (horizontal_size_value & 0xF) || (vertical_size_value & 0xF))
	{
		DEBF("illegal size, hori: %i verti: %i\n", horizontal_size_value, vertical_size_value);
		validSeqHeader = 0;
	}
	else
	{
		validSeqHeader = 1;
	}
	COPY(8)
}
Is there a reason for that ?

Removing it, I can successfully recompressed any HDTV video!

ReJig 0.5a-DE online

It is done!

http://rj-elektronik.de/avideo/images/rejig05.jpg

So, version 0.5 is now german!



Download ReJig 0.5a-DE.01

Now working on the next german guide for rejig...

@Nic: Is there a way to put a TXT-Change-Language-Thing into ReJig? Now I must edit in the sourcefiles and compile all. It will be easier to edit a TXT-File and change so the language of the app. And all other ones can translate ReJig easier, also without being a coder ...

Bugreport:

DVD Backup Mode: Start to Backup a PAL-DVD with a 2 hour movie. Selected DVD Backup to backup the DVD.

Here the Infos about the DVD: 720x576 PAL, German 6ch AC3, English 6ch AC3, 2xGerman sub, 2x English sub.

Bugs: Only the first subtitle works with delay of about 30 sek., All other don't!

Now trying IFO-Mode and seperatly authoring...

great work
and finally i also did some tests


My opinion on the interface:
well done, few lil steps, and then just wait for the burn ready result, great
just one wish: make the stream selection the last step and add a box that shows what percentage of transcoding (if any at all) is needed with this selection (so we could see if for example removing a commentary would make transcoding unneccessary or if leaving in a DTS track would make the needed transcoding too heavy)


no for my test results:

1)
randomly picked: "Rush Hour", german disc rc2 pal
well, is seems like no transcoding was needed, because rejig skiped it and still gave me an undersized disc
subs looked right and were in sync just like the audio, no complaints

2)
"M", the new restored version released by eureka, uk rc2 pal
took 1hour and 10mintues
slight undersizing (a lil more than the 30MB i selected to be safe), but nothing to worry IMO
video looked ok, the grain comes an goes suddenly and there are some artefacts, but it should be enough for TV, so i say: good job on this extremly difficult source
audio was in sync and the subs looked right


But now for the bugs i found:

minor problem: the new DVDs default to audio track 2 (in case
of M the commentary), should be 1 i think [or allow choosing the default audio and subtitle, would be best ofcourse]

BUG: the subs appear almost 5 sec too late! (on M, not on Rush Hour!)
(EDIT after reading the above: M only has 1 sub, Rush Hour has 2, but i only tried the first [then deleted it] so i can't tell if the second one worked)

BugReport:

I think it is the DVD Author of ReJig. I tryed again Dreamcatcher RC2 PAL with it, now manually. I opend IFO-Mode and rejiged the DVD and ripped the subs.

Than I go to DVD Author mode and set up the DVD. In DVD Backup mode the DVD order was so:

VIDEO
ENG AC3
DE AC3
ENG SUB1
DE SUB1
ENG SUB2
DE SUB2

Now I changed a little bit:

VIDEO
DE AC3
ENG AC3
DE SUB1
DE SUB2
ENG SUB1
ENG SUB2

Now the result:

VIDEO and AUDIO is sync.
First Subtitle has wrong colors (maybe, because I tried the 'Copy Color Function', where the '.' didn't worked, so I set it up my self...)
All other subs didn't work.

Fazit:

I think, Nic, You should work on Your DVD-Author. It take to long to Multiplex a DVD with it. It took 41 Min's to get the VOB-files!!!

With IFO-Edit I got it in 8!

The new design is nice! Go on with it.

So I'll work with 0.4i-de and fix the known bugs seperatly, till 0.5b or 0.5c is out... (I hope, these bugs will gone then...)

Here's my guide for 0.4i-de translated on the fly by babelfish.com:

Guide for ReJig by Avalon Very funny!

[Edit] I muxed now the movie again with IFOEdit 0.96. I got working subtitles, but still in green. Plus all 30 sek async!!! It seems the 'Too many frame drop'-Bug is gone. The 'green subtitle bug' still exists, if we mux with IFOEdit. But why is it now async and in 0.4i not (if the extaction works...)?

Released ReJig 0.5aDE2 without 'DVD Backup' and 'DVD Author'.

What's the advantage of this app for a user??? This is not a "one click solution dvd copying" Are we not going back to CCE era where we had to wait and do most of the things manually???
In my opion I just think this app needs way more work on it. My 2 cents. This is my opion and I don't mean to offend no one...

@E-male

First, read carefully what I wrote. I started asking a question and I finished giving an "opinion". So, if you're not gonna answer the question your comment is a waste of typing. Just don't comment.

It's a work in progress, as evidenced by it's 0.5 version number.

It's advantage is to those users who are excited by it's potential and want to contribute to its development by testing it and providing feedback.

'nuff said?

[edit]
FWIW: I posted the above before I saw pv110's reply to E-Male.

pv110, actually is is probably you who should not have commented in what is basically a development thread. I do realize your question had validity to you, however in effect, saying to a house builder who has just got the roof dried in, 'In my opinion I just think this [house] needs way more work on it.' is kind of senseless. Hey, all the walls are not even up yet. And yes, I can promise you, Nic would be the first to agree with you that 'way more work' is to be done, assuming he can get his eyes uncrossed from weeks of all nighters getting it this far along. How about we all just keep every bit of encouragement we can muster coming his way. He should get a Doom9 knighthood for his commitment. "Sir Nic" has a very nice ring to it.

Maybe I'm a little fatigue from a long weekend of work but when you say "muxed", do you you mean by "authored" in IfoEdit? or "remuxed"? as in you remuxed the m2v back into the original VOB?

pv110: The DVD Backup mode is pretty one click ?? Hardly any options...
(And by all means don't use it untill it's in a more ready state, I can understand that, although all feedback is useful Eventually, it will be the only one-click solution that users will be able to give direct feedback and change, I think that's appreciated)

@all: Well it seems there's a bug with the Subs...weird works fine on all the DVDs Ive tested. Ill try more and fix the bugs. Thanks for all the feedback.

Sorry for the early release, it does need more work, but time is running, and it's better that's out and other people can work on it too, rather than sitting on my machine doing nothing.

ReJig is still at a premature stage, but will get there with time and effort

Cheers,
-Nic
