When the attachment is available I will have a look.

Is this test multi-mkv from a Bluray or DVD?

The chapter times where you cut, could maybe a key frame and so works it for you with this movie.

I have other Blurays where the chapter marks not match to a key frame, and MTX don't cut this video on the positions I want.
In this movie was 20 chapters only, a number which it makes possible to work manually.

I understand your way you process the mkv and it is a luck for you, that I have changed "ordering" of the m2ts for the extra editions. In the old cE the "rest" m2ts files was ordered by the m2ts number. So you had many many more cut points.

When the cE1.00 is ready then I will think about such a feature.

cE-update RC

chapterEditor(cE) 1.00 RC1 is available.
Windows
Linux


The last editor in the new cE is the Matroska Menu Editor (MME).

The name "Matroska Menu Editor" no longer applies exactly because this editor contains the Matroska Linking theme.
There will be the menu function again later.

Matroska-Linking is one of the best Matroska features available, but unfortunately not widely used.
There are not any good tools yet, and the support for this feature is limited to a few software.


Let's start with the "simplest" Matroska-Linking, the Hard-Linking:

With Hard-Linking, Matroska files that are in a folder are linked virtually and seamlessly
via their Matroska SegmentUID elements PREV and NEXT.

The play order of the files can only be changed by re-setting the PREV and NEXT SegmentUIDs.

The MME sets up such Hard-Linking and can remove it.
The play order can be changed by moving the files in the list.


Possible player software:

The best software is the LAV splitter!
Unfortunately, VLC(VLC 2.2.x and 3.x) failed the tests.

For testing, I have a 3min file with MTX split into 30 seconds parts.
With the Hard-Linking the 3 minutes are seamlessly played in the LAV splitter, without jerks or disturbances.
VLC shows a total playing time of 3min07sec. At the "transitions" the video hangs for 1 second.



Another important change in the cE was switching Floats to Int64 for some "times".
In the ini are numbers that are now misinterpreted.
Please check the time values in the cE settings. (I have not had time yet, to program an
automatic to update the ini)

Error: "There was no playing time are found."

Hi hubblec4

It's come to my attention that when I open a mkv cE (rev.0.51) gives me an error-window that says "There was no playing time are found."
Any idea?

cheers

Yes it is simple. I'm sure you use MTX v20 now, and in this version has many changed and removed.

In the old cE I used the mkvinfo output, but all this outputs are removed/changed.
cE rev0.51 will work until version 19 only. Sorry but cE rev0.51 is outdated and not supported.

You should use the new cE1.00, or why you still use the old cE?

I changed the first post with a hint for this old cE.
rev0.51
This version is deprecated and no longer supported. Furthermore, a maximum of MKVToolNix version 19 can be used.

chapterEditor(cE) 1.00 RC2 is available.
Windows
Linux


It continues with the next Matroska-Linking system, the Medium-Linking.


For Medium-Linking you need the SegmentUID and ordered chapters.
In a ChapterAtom, there is the "ChapterSegmentUID" element with the SegmentUID associated with the linked file. The start and end times of the chapter determine the length of the linking.
It is thus possible to store a large number of linkings in a separate Matroska file without changing the original files.


For Matroska Medium-Linking to work today, all files that are linked should have the same parameters.
(Theoretically, a very good Matroska splitter could also process Matroska files with different parameters.)


With the new Medium-Linking mode "Simple" you can link Matroska files with a separate main file.

A main play file can be created manually from one of the loaded source files.
Otherwise, such a file will automatically be created from the 1. source file.
I have many more automated, so you only have to make one click.
With a right-click the main play file can be played out of the cE.
Furthermore, there are a few options for the filename of the main file.
- Append name: the main filename will be appended to the source filename.
- Series prefix: with a prefix mask, series prefixes can be adopted and adapted. The main filename will be appended to the new prefix.

Wildcard: "?" - The character from the source file is adopted
Wildcard: ":" - The character is a number, which is replaced by a "0"
Other characters must be exactly the same in the source file
Example:
Source file: S01E01 - First Episode.mkv
Prefix mask:
Code:
????::??? or S??E::?-?
Main play file full name: S01E00 - Mainmenu.mkv



Options for using chapters
4 different chapters options for the main play file are available.
- No chapters(invisible)
- One chapter per file
- Takeover original chapters
- Original chapters and a separate edition for each file
For option 3 and 4, the original chapters should be ordered, otherwise cE will perform an internal chapter end-time calculation.
For option 1 and 2, ordered chapters are created using a playing time.
For all options, a playing time may/must be used, which may be the file playing time or the standard video track duration.


Standard video track duration
For Medium-Linking it is sometimes important to synchronize the chapter times with the video times so that the linked videos are played seamlessly.
Sometimes the file playing time is sufficient, but often this time is too big.
Determining the video times works very fast with the Statistics Tags and is 99.9% accurate. However, not all MKV muxer write these Tags.
I've slightly expanded the internal Matroska parser to parse the clusters, giving you 100% accurate video times. However, this method takes a little bit.
Both methods can be used simultaneously. First, cE searchs for Statistics Tags.
If you always want to work with the Cluster method, only this must be activated.
If neither method is active or the Tags are not found then the file duration will be used.


Chapter Structure Options:
The simple top-level structure can be processed with any Matroska Splitter.
Nested Chapters - LAV Splitter:
The chapter structure is specially adapted for LAV Splitter.
Source file editions are better represented using nested chapters in the chapter menu.
Other splitters can also handle this structure (VLC, mpv). The chapter presentation can be different.


Player software:
The two best players are MPC-HC/BE: All chapter options are processed properly.
VLC launches without problems and also plays the 1st edition, but hangs when selecting a different edition (chapter option 4).
The chapter options 1-3 are played by many players. Mpv does it with the best. ZoomPlayer and MPDN also work.

Matroska Medium-Linking menu mode is ready.
Several Matroska files and their editions can be connected and later conveniently selected in the "Menu".

Just as in the "Simple" mode, all linkings are stored in a separate main play file.
The presentation of the "menu" depends on the respective playback software.

Much has been taken from the old Matroska Menu Editor but also a lot of new and improved.
The menu-editions and their files are now summarized as a tree structure in the VST.

Mosu had added new functions in the MTX Chapter Editor, which I also included in the cE.
Furthermore, there will be a new auxiliary function starting with MTX Version 22:
Remove dialog normalization from special audio tracks.

This feature is now available for the Disc2mkv editors.
For me, this eliminates the demux of such audio tracks with eac3to.
I guess Mosu will release the new version in the coming days.

Otherwise there are a lot of improvements.

cE update RC5

chapterEditor(cE) 1.00 RC5 is available.
Windows
Linux


While working through the RC-Todo list I found a few bugs.
Ordered Chapters:
Since the Matroska specs are not clear enough, I have improved there some checks.
If the endtime is missing this is not a direct Matroska error, but such chapters disturb the playback,
since no virtual playing time can be calculated.



Creating a mtxcfg file for the Disc2mkv editors is now available again.
The mtxcfg file is a settings file for MKVToolNix (MTX).
The mtxcfg file opens MTX automatically if certain system settings are set (correct program linkage).

In cE such a mtxcfg file is created with all settings and you can then make other settings in MTX that are not present in the cE.
Thus, one can also edit multi-Angle/Edition Blu-rays/DVDs with MTX.

You can now also create the MKV files yourself (no longer with cE).
For this, the CMD/Bash file or mtxcfg file can then be used.

A series Blu-ray can be transferred to MTX within a few seconds using 1-Click mode with all cE presets (selected tracks, sorted, etc.).

The chapter converter has been extended a bit.
The FPS conversion can now be used for all output formats.
The conversion is always active, as is the case in ChapterGen.
The chapter times are thus changed immediately when loading.


Native Matroska menu command (s) -> chapter process
There is only one command so far [GotoAndPlay (ChapterUID);].
This command is supported in VLC.
For the easier entry of such a command, only the chapter-UID must be set and
the binary value is then generated.

What are your favorite tasks?
I know cE has no good documentation but this is one big task on my Todo-list but I don't know right where I have to start.

cE has now a lot of function and features but if you need more, let me know. One rule of cE is:
What the user wants, he gets.

In this little update there are new features for Matroska Hard-Linking.

I have installed 5 new Hard-Linking options.

The options for series may be quite helpful.
Episodes of a series with an intro and/or credits can be linked quickly.
The first mkv file is the intro and the last mkv file are the credits.
On the hard disk, the files can be different ordered, the order is deciding how it is in the cE.

Feature Request: support for Grass Valley Edius marker / chapter list

Hi, I'm having a serious feature request here.
GrassValley Edius does not support senseful marker lists on import and export, it works using its own propritairy file formats only. So I'm looking for a chapter conversation software which can deal with these uncommon formats.
Is it possible to add the two chapter formats supported by GrassValley Edius?
Best regards

Jim
