Okay guys... after a week or so of non-stop working on the motion menu it is finally ready (XMB and Slide styles).

multiAVCHD now supports static and motion menus + chapter pages + title list menu.

It is possible to create a compilation without a menu (xmb/slide/carousel) but only with a Title List Menu which allows you a faster scroll (12 titles per page).

All menu pages (static or motion) feature background audio.

Here is how it looks:

XMB base static:


XMB base static / chapters:


XMB base motion (title thumb and background are video):


Title List Menu (for all menu styles and when not using menu):




And of course - the POP-UP menu (designed by drelin) available during playback of each title:


Also, in Blu-ray output mode there are 'clicks' when you move the selection box in the "Chapters" and "Title List" pages.

All buttons can be placed at user-defined places, labels (play/setup...) can be changed and a lot of other things.

Since the GUI is lacking the additions, I can post a test version (1.5MB) for those of you who want to give it a try.

Dean

Yes, it will be possible to select audio/subtitles in the "SETUP" page, which supports selection of the first 6 audio and 6 subtitle tracks. It is not ready yet, but in few more days it will be.

I have backups, this is for testing so no worries. ill set the temp folder to the one you specified, thnx.

Edit: changing the temp folder didnt work, ill uninstall multiavchd and reinstall a fresh 729, i also will install avisynth and such again. ill try and test around some by myself.

thnx!

Edit: the version of x264.exe is the one you send me, last edited 26-10-2009, i dont know how to see wich version it is.

Test 730RC build

Here is a RC build for those of you who wish to test it:

multiAVCHD_730RC.rar (1.5MB).

Contains:

multiAVCHD.exe (3.1.730)
multiAVCHD.dat [03010730]


**************************
This version supports:

* 252 titles per compilation
* 96 chapters per title (8 chapter pages per title)
* 21 title-list menu pages (12 titles per page = 252 titles)
* 1 audio/subtitle setup page per title (252 total) (not available yet)
* pop-up menu for each title
* background audio for the main title pages
* motion background for main title pages
* motion title-thumbnail for main title pages
* all menu related files are placed above 80000 (80000.m2ts - 93552.m2ts) and playlists above 00251 (00252-00552.mpls)

* Importing, scanning and verifying titles is about 4 to 8 times faster in this build
* Scan/import shows proper playlist duration, in/out times, linked IGS/POP-UP streams and multiAVCHD now recognizes the type of disc as BDMV 1.1, BDMV 2.0, AVCHD 1.1
* Chapter thumbnail extraction is about 10 to 20 times faster now (extracting 96 chapters from a movie takes less than 30 seconds, compared to few minutes in previous builds)
* Menu page generation for static pages is also about 2 times faster than before + a static page occupies about 50 to 100KB (compared to 400-500KB in previous builds)
* PLAYLIST tab in TITLE PROPERTIES shows a lot of information about the current title/file/playlist
* SEEK precision in TITLE PROPERTIES is ~1 frame and < > will skip about 1 frame (in milliseconds, depending on your video framerate)
* Setting POSTER frame, CUT/TRIM END/START now have milliseconds precision
* Seeking to and adding chapters in TITLE PROPERTIES with + and - buttons is with milliseconds precision
* GUI speed is drastically improved when working with more than 50-100 titles
* BD-Reauthor mode will properly handle sub-path sub-entries (like PIP, secondary audio, etc) and will properly restore links to such streams in the mpls files
* BD-Reauthor mode will properly restore playlist flags, chapter/entry marks and Extended Information in BDMV v2 Blu-ray disc titles with Extended information segment
* Should a compilation run fails, multiAVCHD is now able to load the unfinished project folder and continue
* [full mode] processing of imported playlists/titles will use only the (correct) playitems from the main-path and in the CORRECT order (so no more strange errors when trying to mux menus/textST m2ts files into the main movie and getting wrong movie fragments)

* to import compilations from older builds (<730) remove/rename multiAVCHD.mpf and import the folder to allow full re-scan.

* multiAVCHD will properly utilize the contents of HDAVCTN folder when importing older compilations, although the naming convention is changed to MMMMM-TTTCCC.jpg where MMMMM is the FIRST m2ts file number for the title, not the one which the chapter was extracted from.


**************************

To use it you will need the LATEST FULL download of build 729. Create a backup copy of it and extract both files to overwrite the old versions.

A good idea is to remove the .ini file, too.

Things to play with are in AUTHOR tab and in MENU/General and MENU/Misc.



[x] Add pop-up menu - this option was added in build 400 and later removed but now is back in the GUI and working. It allows fast access to next/previous title, the title menu, the chapter menu for the title and to the title-list menu where you can quickly browse to another title. POP-UP menu is not supported in Playstation3, unless used with Blu-ray output, burnt to BD-R/RE disc.

[x] Add title-list menu - You can use a title list menu even if you don't create main/top menu. The Title list menu will act as a top menu. In other words it is like another menu-style, which you can't customize (except for the number of tiles in the background). Should you decide not to use a menu (XMB/SLIDE/CAR) and only Title-list menu, it would take LESS than 2 minutes to create 21 pages for all your 252 titles.




[x] Create chapter menu pages - up to 8 chapter pages x12 chapters will be created (8x12=96 chapter thumbs)

Chapter menu top/left defines the position of the chapter-list box.




Title list BG complexity setting has great impact on the speed of title-list-menu generation. The slider can be set from 0 to 12 and defines the number of small 'tiles' in the background of the menu. 12 means: 12x12=144 tiles for the left and 144 for the right = 288 tiles. You can see it in the pictures above - I posted one with setting 12 and one with setting 6. Use 3 to 6 for testing and to get it created faster.

Button coordinates are the default of the vertically scrolled menu (XMB). If you enable [x] Apply button position settings you can place each button wherever you want. The navigation will depend on the menu you chose (XMB will cause UP/DOWN to scroll and in SLIDE/CAR LEFT/RIGHT will scroll).

[x] Motion title thumbnail will work only if you use 'motion' menu and will animate the small title thumbnail, too (along with the background).

[x] Show chapter extraction - if disabled you will let multiAVCHD do its work, instead of showing you what it is doing.

Saturation / Brightness / Contrast / Blur options are applied to the motion background. Less saturation and more blur make the foreground clear and improve the overall 3D-like look. Steps: Saturation (0.0 to 1.0), Brightness (-15.0 to +15.0), Contrast (0.0 to 1.0), Blur (0 to 5).

[x] Use sound with navigation will make multiAVCHD use sound.bdmv in AUXDATA to play 'clicks' when you select/activate a button in Chapters menu and in Title List Menu. The option has effect only when using "Blu-ray" output mode.

XMB and SLIDE menu styles can be motion or static. Carousel can only be static at the moment.

Post back with any results.

Dean

edit: I found a bug with the pop-up menu, when applying it to existing AVCHD playlists. It is now fixed.

A lot of testers, eh...

***

I'll try to finish the "SETUP" page (audio / subtitle selection) and then I think of adding the feature to "GROUP" content (titles) - two levels for starters.

Before that, I'll activate the 'more' button in title properties, so each menu page will get the chance to be either 'static', 'motion' (defined by the settings in MENU tab) or defined by the options ([more] button). Each title will have its menu properties saved in the project file, so the next time a menu is created, it will need no set up.

Few things left like custom audio and custom video, but I won't proceed unless I get more feedback anyway.

Dean

Have found the first bug, I think. When using the fit-all to a dvd-5 size (4480) it oversized by quite a bit (4898), this is using the Car menu with motion menu. It was probably due to my using multiple clips.
