Interesting project! Hopefully it'll surpass XySubFilter in performance and features in due time and continue to have active development.

Just out of curiosity, why were you searching for an alternative to XySubFilter?

I tested it on both Windows 7 and 8.1 and it works fine for me. Is it the only font you have problems with?

I just wanted a directshow filter based on the library libass since its still actively developed and an easy project to work on.

I'm glad that you started this project!

I stopped using XySubfilter a few years ago when I started upscaling my videos to 4K. It was buggy and very resource intensive at 2560x1440 and even worse at 4k rendering. (I upscale to 4k with madvr, mpc-hc and lav)

Even the built in subtitle renders in MPC-HC and BE could not do 4K subs with out errors, crashes, etc.

AssFilterMod is able to render 4k subs without crashing the video players that I use with my test videos. I do run into some slow downs if there is a lot of animated subs being displayed at the same time or larger, animated fonts being displayed. Not the render's fault, of course as a lot of resources are being used at 4k.

I like consistency in my playback so I usually use 2560x1440 for the subs on my 4K up-scales. There is not a huge difference in quality, IMHO, between 4k and 2560x1440 rendered subs and it plays some of the more aggressive subtitles without losing frames. Plus, compared to internal sub renders at the same 2560 resolution, AssFilterMod looks better and doesn't use much more rendering power.

At least now, I have the option to use 4k sub rendering if I so choose.

I look forward to your continued development of this project!

Blitzker,

When setting font, does it have to be within the filter or player? I'm using mpc be and dsplayer. The font being used differ from time to time. I was thinking maybe there is something in the srt file it self. Im using windows 10 pro x64

this for MPC-Like
1 - Go to "External Filters", press "Add Filters" and add all of: DirectVobSub, AssFilterMod and XySubFilter
2 - From the right side, change the preference of each of those filters to "Block" except AssFilterMod
3 - Set the preference of AssFilterMod to "Prefer"
i hope this will help you

Thank you very much for the AssFilterMod !



I did some quality comparison for subtitle renderers.
For this I used file "[FTV-subs] Touhou - Bad Apple!! PV [960x720] v2.mkv" with "simple karaoke" (first track) subtitles.

fullscreen mode in 1680x1050 resolution
- AssFilterMod 0.2.1 [harfbuzz]
http://i.imgur.com/j5GAnpl.png
- AssFilterMod 0.2.1 [885515f]
http://i.imgur.com/A4g0r3h.png
- XySubFilter 3.1.0.746 BETA3
http://i.imgur.com/EdidGLE.png
- MPC-HC 1.7.10.252
http://i.imgur.com/PeLFVAp.png
- xy-VSFilter 3.0.0.306
http://i.imgur.com/9PQYnJ8.png

windowed mode in enabled "Auto-zoom:" with set "Auto Fit" and "Auto fit factor:" set to "75%" in MPC-HC:
- AssFilterMod 0.2.1 [harfbuzz]
http://i.imgur.com/PXytcCs.png
- AssFilterMod 0.2.1 [885515f]
http://i.imgur.com/QEopXk9.png
- XySubFilter 3.1.0.746 BETA3
http://i.imgur.com/03RDKlg.png
- MPC-HC 1.7.10.252
http://i.imgur.com/ZqIAFiZ.png
- xy-VSFilter 3.0.0.306
http://i.imgur.com/Aqkl0mY.png

My opinions and observations:
- xy-VSFilter isn't usable in this days, because of awful and terrible subtitle rendering quality
- XySubFilter produces a little more sharper subtitles than MPC-HC
- AssFilterMod produces sharpest subtitles, compared to XySubFilter, MPC-HC and xy-VSFilter
- AssFilterMod [harfbuzz] produces a little more sharper subtitles than AssFilterMod

Vertical subtitles are smaller in AssFilterMod (at least with this file), compared to XySubFilter, MPC-HC and xy-VSFilter. Is it a bug?

This sharpness you're noticing looks to be the result of the text being slightly closer together in some areas, otherwise it's identical, is that change intended?

What changed exactly with those builds I see nothing mentioned in the GIT.

I was trying to get assfiltermod to work, but no success at all, tried with mcp-be and potplayer, no luck. Any help will be appreciated.

I couldn't get it working with BE, it's not supported anyway. I know it works in HC though.

Yeah that's why MPC-BE hasn't added support for it yet. Most users are still better off with xy/vssubfilter for now.

Thanks for testing! Indeed the vertical subtitles are smaller compared to XySubFilter. This is one of many differences between XySubFilter and libass (be it features or bugs )

The harfbuzz builds are to test another way to compile libass with a new text shaper (harfbuzz instead of freetype). Since harfbuzz is still actively developed, i may switch to this if there is no glitches in the display of the subs.

Yes, it only work with embedded subtitles for now. I'll start to look into external subtitles when i get more time.

Same here, not a glitchy sub yet with the harfbuzz builds.

I've made a new build based on harfbuzz with a not yet released version of libass. This fixes a problem with the drawing of outlines with some fonts.

Works good for me but it needs more testing.
