Wouldn´t it be a good idea to hold questions back for a while?

I think no software in the world so far has been taken care the way Dean does for weeks, immediately being ready and helpful for everyone, always patient! We all are spoiled!

PLEASE, GIVE HIM THE TIME ! ! !
...to finish the new version without constant interruptions...

Sorry, I was not aware of that. Usually dislike big letters myself, but in this case thought it might be OK. Won´t happen again!

It's easy :
In the box "MT2S split at" replace 3999 by big value like 999999.
The M2TS created during compilation will are not splitted.

Hey deank, I don't mean to bother you, and I don't know if this is the right time, but I meant to ask you something for a wile.
Is it possible to make it remember the last played title?
You know, when going back to the menu after watching several titles, instead of going back to the one you started watching, to go to the last one you played.
I think it would be the correct way. Well, I would like it that way.

Anyway, this is becoming better and better, and I wanna thank you for this great software, your efforts, and the way you help everyone right away.

Regards.

Yes, this will be the way playback order will be set for XMB/SLI/CAR menus in the next version. At least I'll try.

*** edit: I just tested it and it works, so it will be available soon.

mmmh ... ffmpeg does not do an "redundant job" anymore, when eac3to fails to converts dts. MultiAVCHD just takes the dts file even when "use ffmpeg when needed" is checked. Who else does consider this. Perhaps it is my system setting.

CORRECTION: my fault ... used m2ts for that ... that does not work

It is fixed in the upcoming release.

*** edit: DTS conversion works for MKV files only (at the moment).

You can now download Version 3.0.

It requires full-download, because of updated tools folder.

multiAVCHD is completely rewritten. It is possible that there are some minor problems, but after your bug reports I'll try to fix them.

Special thanks to:

strad, drpaulng and kenguru2005 for the time they took to test multiAVCHD and suggest new features + share ideas.

With custom background the reflection is not always a good rendering.

Thank.
I just start test (mores test this week end) and I rlaunch this request for cosmetic with slide menu.
if you will see this point when you can.

The editor is great with now selection and import of external files.
Thank for the new release.

Version 3.0 Build 615:

NB!: Extract version 3.0 into a clean (empty) folder. Core CalcIt library is changed + 2 tsMuxeR versions are used. Never update any of the tools in 'tools' folder.

* Fixed tons of bugs
* Input content is processed on loading (not during the compilation)
* All auto-loaded external audio/subtitle/chapter/poster files are available in Title properties
* Media tab shows info for the selected item (Name, duration, size)
* You can now load/save projects:

You can assosiate .mpf files with multiAVCHD.exe for quick access to your saved/created compilations.

Project files are essential part of the new version. There are two variations:

1) The one you can Save + the one that multiAVCHD saves in its own folder: it contains information about all files which you loaded in multiAVCHD. This type allows you to continue preparation of your compilation at any time.

2) multiAVCHD.mpf saved in the output folder. This type replaces multiMENU/multiCHAP/etc. and is used for importing existing compilations.

Never edit .mpf files generated by multiAVCHD.

Title properties:

* You can now add/remove/auto-generate chapter marks
* Preview (with directshow) can be used for precise possitioning
* Video playback if you click the preview-thumbnail
* You can now use poster images
* Menu preview for XMB/Slide/Carousel menus will show poster images for titles 1-4
* You can now individually trim titles with "trim start/trim end"
* [x] Show this title first option - if checked - selected title menu page will be displayed first in XMB/CAR/SLI menus. It doesn't affect title order.
* Action after play option allows you to choose individual playback sequence for each title
* External Audio/Subtitle/Chapter files tabs allow you to add or remove external files, to edit language IDs and create auto-chapter marks

* Import of Blu-ray and AVCHD playlists is improved:

multiAVCHD will use the original chapters from imported Blu-ray discs or AVCHD compilations (from camcoders or multiAVCHD)

Join mode (m2ts join/split) now works and allows splitting/merging of playlist contents.

If you use M2TS split size but an imported playlist-playitem exceeds that size, playlist will be parsed in JOIN/SPLIT mode, so the output will be compatible with the required split point (for FAT32 for example)

This option makes one click Blu-ray discs import possible.

* If returning from a title (after playback finishes or a menu-call) - last played title will be displayed in XMB/CAR/SLI menus and correct menu page will be displayed for Classic and Thumbnail menu (the one that contains the last played title)

* Log tab shows different and more useful information during loading files/folders/DVDs/Blu-rays/AVCHD compilations.


I can't remember all things that I've changed and added for the last week, so if you have problems and questions - let me know.

If you decide to report a bug - be specific of all things you've done and the files you've used. Don't post with "Why *** doesn't work?" questions - I'll ignore such posts.

Dean

Hi, that’s me again, an user who could not get poster into menu for hours. New version is nice and generally I am getting along with it. The issue I have though is:
- I get poster from http://www.impawards.com (maximum resolution)
- I get it into MultiAVCHD

so far is very cool
but then the poster in menu is stretched vertically, I would prefer not scale it in PS or something. Is it possible to have unstretched?
Sorry for asking – it is probably somewhere explained in the thread. But since you answering how not to split the m2ts file so I am taking my chance too. Great work otherwise. Regards. marek

I noticed this too. Happy to create something in Photoshop if need be but would need to know what the ideal resolution is for the poster images.

First I thought to have canvas vertical with aspect ratio of the menu box, as MultiAVCHD is scaling picture to fit the menu box, and then paste the poster in the middle of that canvas. Poster would be small though and it would be waste of good visible space. The simplest solution IMO would be to create Thumbnail menu #2 with vertical box. That would suit me at least.

I already explained about the poster few times.

Use 16:9 aspect. Best poster images would be 1920x1080 or 1280x720. Only 16:9 - that's it - in any resolution. You can use 384x216 if you wish.

You'll have to CROP your original posters or prepare one in 16:9 to have it in native AR. Everything in multiAVCHD is in 16:9 and I won't change it.


*** You can get an idea how your poster will look like if you use MENU PREVIEW - that's a new feature in 3.0 (works for JPEG poster files only).

*** I think that tomorrow I'll try to merge MEDIA tab and EDITOR tab. I find it hard to use both and it will speed-up/ease title manipulation.

Thanks deank - I think this thread is getting a little big to search through all the relevant posts to a question! You should have your own sub forum! v3 really is superb as always. One small suggestion so far is that a next button could be added to the editor screen so you can skip to the next tile to edit.

Also, where is the watch, learn, play and enjoy text being generated from? I don't see an option to change it unless I'm being blind as usual!

Yes I'm adding << >> buttons but once I merge media and editor it will be easier.

You're not blind I guess, but the "watch... enjoy" text is in XSC tab - "Smart line:".
