would it be possible to make a 5min sample encoding of a movie? (so it only encodes 5mins of sound, subs and moviefile?)

would it be possible so it states the size of the audiostreams, subs and videostream crated in the log file?

if i select hq-slow profile, in the logfile it still states ce-mainprofile was selected, so which one does it really use? (see screenshots) (in the advanced setting tab hq-slow is in the profile though....

the x264.exe is still launched as a low priority process, maybe make it so one can set it themselves in the advanced settings tab what priority it should be?

if the finaly encoded mkv file is opened in core media player, it states that some mediastreams could not be rendered. I dont know which ones though, everything seems to work, any idea what it could be? or how i can find out what it is? the log file of cmp is below.

for movie, check "Last line avs script", and write "Trim(0,7500)"
audio ? interrupt the encoding, CTRL+C.
Subs ? no, not possible

Sorry crashed, not so easy.

Audio and video is already reported. only subs size is missing
"Only Movie Size:" and "Audio Size 1' Track:"

hit "Reload profile" , even if on change of profile the adv prof. editing should change automatically...

I have always had this problem... sometimes it take me 4 or 5 times to get the whole file downloaded. I have traced it back to something on his servers end, not saying it's his server per-say but rather wherever it's hosted, and my ISPs ability to get there.

 30th October 2006, 11:29 #204  |  Link crashed Registered User   Join Date: Oct 2006 Location: Zurich, Switzerland Posts: 30 things seem to work fine now, 3 more sugestions i have: 1. would it be possible so it saves the last line avs script setting and the filters setting ? 2. would it be possible to encode a batch of files. I know that you can queue jobs but you have to open each file and set everything for it. lets say you have 50 episodes, is there a way to make it so it encodes all the episodes while just having to set the variables once and not 50 times? 3. For example in the german dvd "closer" it finds 2 german, 2 english and 1 turkish subtitles, in the final mkv file only 1 german 1 english and 1 turkish subtitle is playable, out of 5 listed. Any idea how to get rid of the other 2? Or could you make 4 subtitle tracks aviable so one can choose more than 2 but doesnt have to rip all the subs? This is also why core player comes with an error that some streams are unsupported (the error i talked about in my previous post), if i dont have those "fake subs" in the mkv file everything works fine. Thanks, crashed Last edited by crashed; 30th October 2006 at 12:05.

DONE in 0.50 , also added to queue object (the last line)

mhh.. not so easy again, anyway only audio track/subs changes on input a new source file

the same file with mpc (with or without haali splitter) is ok ?

those subs are not "fake" but probably used in some angle.
In subs list only those in select pgc are show, rip all subs is to be used when 2 subs track aren't enough... i i think that 2 subs is usually enough... (but please report if this file is ok with mpc)

thanks you too

(this is the first build of 0.50 series, please be cautius, is a little more then a beta build)

and here the long awaited 0.50(d) series

now the good news

AutoMKV .5x includes new features for the quality oriented who want a crf based HQ encode in 1Pass, yet still want size control. As well, the new features provide those who want a high level of control with expanded features.

Quick start - Choose input and output, Choose Output file size, Choose the CQ-ASP_Q2_eq(crf) profile. Answer "Hit Media size" to the pop-up. In the advanced tab select "Allow multiple autoresize" and start encode (if you want more interaction with quality choose)

AutoMKV will sample the source to identify the level of compressibility. When "Allow multiple autoresize"is checked, the user will be presented with the suggested Resolution, CRF value to be used, and other information. If acceptable, press "No" to redo and the enclode will start. If the resolution and CRF value (crf values < 22 should be good with crf 18 being very good) are not to your liking, simply leave the pop-up as is, go to autoMKV and add more size, change matrix, add a filter, etc., then Click yes for redo. Process will repeat. When you are comfortable with the values presented, just press no and encode will proceed.

After the crf encode is completed, AutoMKV will trigger the 2nd pass only if the encode size is outside the values in MinSize Maxsize.

(ehi... don't be afraid there are always 2 pass encoding !)

and here the (big) changelog

FIXED: added sub size to log file
FIXED: lame encoding for second audio track
FIXED: better support for process.exe, no process.exe flash up more
FIXED: on avi source, copy original audio is no more allowed
FIXED: added "last line avs script" to save default

ADDED: log save both audio avs/batch files
ADDED: is now possible to select what CQM use in XivD
ADDED: a simple command line support. Create your setting (video codec, container , media size..)(use "Save Default") and give it a personalized name (es. 24hour.ini)
create a .bat file (within automkv directory) with this
Code:
AutoMKV050d.exe 24hour.ini "C:\path\to\24h\test1.vob" 2 2 1 0 start
The "2 2 1 0 start" mean:
2 on first audio track choose second audio present
2 on second audio track choose second audio present
1 on first sub track choose first sub
0 on second sub track choose NONE to sub
start ... mmm ...let's start encoding ?
ADDED: language translate support. After choosing language (on advanced settings), click on save default and restart AutoMKV.
Use automkv.ita as reference. Name the language file to automkv.XXX where XXX is the ISO639-2 code of nation (better, look on advanced settings the code of your language)
ADDED: more accurate crf size prediction with conditional 2nd pass for automatic correction of oversize, undersize. Many high quality encodes will take just 1 pass. The conditional 2nd pass is only activated if size exceeds user set min/max values

with new build (050d) just create your default.ini personalized with codec settings, audio settings... then launch
Code:
AutoMKV050d.exe default.ini "C:\path\to\your\files.vob" 1 0 0 0 start
I want to public (again) DDogg for the tremendus test, time, idea, support he had given to this project !

 4th November 2006, 00:37 #208  |  Link DDogg Retired, but still around     Join Date: Oct 2001 Location: Lone Star Posts: 3,058 Thanks, buzzqw, always glad to help where I can. Seems to be working well on my first test. The target was 1/4 dvd and the muxed file would have been 1,082,163,420 bytes so was about 96.07% of target size of 1,126,400,000 bytes. Not bad at all and I think a few more tweaks will come out soon to narrow it down. The 2nd pass was triggered because I left the Min too high [your setting]. More time, but the encode can only get better (fractionally). Code: Accepted values are between 1080 and 1105 mb Got a file of size: 716.73 mb + audio size 314.61 mb Switching to 2 pass mode I can see where you may want to change the min-max to a percentage. I would be happy to accept an encode 5% small and trigger the 2nd pass if 1% too big. To do that now would need the settings changed in min/max - min at 1045 and max at 1111 for 1/4 DVD (right?). That is easy. What is not easy is doing it every single time a size target is changed. Would be a lot easier to put in 5% and 1% and be done with it. (or at least have the boxes autofilled with numbers based upon a user setting, ini setting, etc.) Then you have the whole confusion thing between a KB and a MB - Might be better to stay with bytes as the log above is confusing, at least to me - Well I hope you will consider it. Huge progress with this version! Very powerful with a lot of advanced features, yet still easy to get started with and use. That is not an easy task. Great job! __________________ How to Optimize Bitrate for CCE multipass Last edited by DDogg; 4th November 2006 at 01:38.

any suggestion ?

AutoMK4 (seems a gun name...)
AutoAMM (avi,mp4,mkv... no... just a bigger gun !)
AutoX2MMAK (alien name ?)
X265 ? (brand new name !)

i haven't good ideas... feel free any suggestion !
