What vega do you have? Can you use the NGU sharp very high settings + other enhancements? Why don't you use D3D11 in LAV instead of DXVA2 copyback?

Vega64, using D3D11 would freeze after a few frames, not sure why, as it works for SDR. I am pretty sure NGU very high was used, without enhancements; sadly I can't retest as I don't own a 4k+HDR display, this was just a one time opportunity to test.

Going back to the finer granularity matter, as much as I'd like to try 1.5 "add grain" I'd also like to try 0.15 "enhance detail" if any possible please

coz 0.2 doesn't look natural and 0.1 is too soft, 0.15 might do the magic

Hey, I was just wondering what the "best" (as in using all of madvr's features and with minimal load) way to use lav video's new d3d11 decoding was: is it leave it on auto and native (will lav then dither and colour convert?..) or choose a gpu for copyback? I'm assuming "use d3d11 for presentation" is mandatory in madvr either way.

Micro-LED does have per pixel control. Hence the "micro" in the name, the LEDs are "micro" sized so that you have individual LEDs for each subpixel. It's a regular "inorganic" version of OLED.

that'S nice or something but that doesn't change that it doesn't exist in consumer TVs anytime soon.

and without a released normal priced product i won't judge the performance of it.

Micro-LED pretty much takes the best of both worlds and none of the bad things.
As much as this is offtopic, I'm not inclined to believe that MicroLED will avoid image retention problems and burn in. They are emissive, they are bound to "consume" themselves sooner or later. Am I wrong in this? Plasma and CRT were inorganic but they suffered from IR and BI just the same.
Written by an 8 years Kuro user that hasn't had significant problems with IR or BI but still...

MicroLED technology is just another half-assed solution until true (i.e. electro-emissive) quantum dot displays would arrive. It looks a little better than other half-assed solutions like OLED or photo-emissive QD over regular LEDs, but it's still half-assed (they are already planning to combine microLEDs with photo-emissive QD layer once again). And it seems like in the end microLED won't fit for relatively big screens due to very high production costs. Currently it's nothing more than another rushed attempt to flog a half-dead VR horse and/or Apple's next advertising gimmick to show off as "innovative" again - so all this sudden hype around microLED.

Guys, please could you take the MicroLED discussion somewhere else? Not everyone is interested in this

Calm down it's barely a discussion, it happens. Would rather the odd bit off OT than copious quoting :P

Returning to MadVR after not having a gaming pc for 5 years. Quick question: now that MPC-HC is no longer being developed, what's the preferred media player for MadVR? Likewise for XySubFilter.

mpc-hc working fine and will get an update soon.

subtitle is complicated xy subfilter supports most of madVr advanced subtitle feature and all other common subtitle format but feel free to use the mpc-hc ISR.

Hi guys,

does someone know if i can tell madvr to use a certain 3Dlut when a file is played in 3D?

For example:
Quote:
if (filePath = "\\homediskstation\video\HighDefinition3D\*") "3D"

Unfortunately this is not working for .iso cause they are played from a virtual disc drive

Greetings

I suggest you (and everyone) to use MPC-BE instead, because it is well maintained and you can get support on here too : https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=165890

I would also recommend to use the internal subtitle renderer of MPC-BE, because XySubFilter is not developed anymore and has bugs with madVR.

So i have decided to buy 4k TV because because... Downscaling 4k HEVC is a pain for my i5..........It shouldnt be!!! Anywways i have gtx 750 ti so i willl probably need to upgrade my gpu. Any tips on what is the best gpu to upgrade too (NVIDIA or amd)?? Knowing i will need gpu power to upscale many 1080p videos to 4k when 4k not available.

this is now a difficult decision as neither Nvidia or AMD have stable enough card now using windows 10.

The main issue with NVIDIA for me was 3D, its just not reliable at all, sometimes it works, often it doesnt. I was also getting for more black screen and HDMI signal loss with my 1050. HDR is also a problem, its broken at the moment, a fix is coming but they will likelly break it again.

My AMD 550 is pretty stable now but it still freezes my PC now and again coming out of a video playback, although i've gone back to 17.10.2 and it hasnt crashed for over a week. HDR is spot on with my AMD card, no issues at all, perfect glitchless playback.

My current preference is AMD as I have perfect playback of everything with only the odd pc hang on newer drivers, I dont game so there is no rush for me to keep up to date.

mpc-hc zoom in/out with numpad key 9 and 1.

With Windows EVR (normal, custom presenter, EVR-CP)
From lowest to highest zoom level the machine eats 26 watt.

With madVR lowest zoom level eats 26 watt and highest zoom level eats 46 watt.

I've set every madVR option to its lowest rescource consumption setting.

In my opinion this is many many many too much unneeded burned coal.

Any workaround?

It's not because it's not stable for you that you should declare nVidia unstable full stop.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update + 1080Ti + 385.28 is rock stable here, including for 3D. I told you had to use a batch file to enable 3D every single time. That's about the only thing that's not working with nVidia. Otherwise HDR works 100% fine with 385.28, at least with the config in my sig. Madshi has indicated that an upcoming driver will resolve the issues with HDR with the most recent drivers, but there is NO ISSUE with 385.28.
