Thank you Moitah for nice tool, working good with 3ivx .avi and VLCplayer is reacting nicely for the changes done by Mpeg4Modifier.

Very interesting experiments can be carried out with anamorphic 2.35:1 pictures that are encoded with 3ivx with pixel matrix 720x576 and latter modified to 2.35:1 by Mpeg4Modifier.

Have you been cropping 2.35:1 images and encoding them using 720x480/576 pixels. And then MPEG4Modifier to correct the DAR back to 2.35:1?

If so it's quite nifty feature. And such is the power of DAR over PAR. But you can do it with XviD and DivX too!


Cheers

Yes, exactly croping then resizing to 720x576 and Mpeg4Modifier back to 2.35:1. All this tests are done on sattv records.
I see that you have SS2 card /my advice to you HotBird 13, 10911V, MCE radio, you can record simultaniously 10 (ten) MCE channels and every song or piece of music is recorded separately - it is only pity that MCE webpages with song titles and albums are not more working/.

That would be really useful as xvid does not offer such option during encoding.

Oh well... Just a thought!

This would be clever!

Have you got something up your sleeve that can half the frame rate (ie: throw out the duplicate frames) from 60fps 720p encodes?


Cheers

Nope, can't throw away frames since they are predicted from eachother. Why would a 60fps 720p encode have duplicate frames? Maybe if all the dupes were N-VOPs, but I don't think this would be reliable.

I haven't tried this, but I think it will work fine.

Hi Moitah,

Hey there best friend, buddy, Pal, demi-god....

Would it be possible to make a version of this tool that can support different containers... such as MKV and (my personal favourite) .MP4?


Just curious!

Moitah, this is an excellent tools. Works wonders as far as changing the UserData of old XviD encodes is concerned (I had a few old ones which borked in the new decoder).

It may sound noobish, but I cannot get the AR changing to take place. I am using MPC and Koepi's Xvid 1.0.1 filter. It seems as though it ignores the AR set in the AVI file. I prefer using the XviD decoder, so is it possible or is it only possible with FFDShow?

And again. Thanks a lot for this gr8 tool and keep up the good work.

Unfortunately Koepi's 1.0.1 DSdec filter does not decode and display anamorphic streams. So that's why MPC does not work yet!

I've tried a pre-release of version of Koepi's 1.1.x DSdec filter and it works very well indeed....

So hang on in there a bit longer!


Cheers

My pleasure!

In the meantime, if you have the new version of Nero Vision Express installed, you could view your anamorphic encodes in their ShowTime player!


Cheers

I have Nero installed, but I love MPC a bit too much and haven't been able to use anything since I first got hold of it. (Hope Gabest keeps up the updates, the good news is that he commited a few changes just a few days back. )

Yes, Nero's new filters will (should) work now in all direct-show based players

That said users must either un-install, de-register or lower the priority of their any other Mpeg4 DSdec filters they may have installed, before Nero's kick in.

Or they could change the 4cc code of their entire collection of Mpeg4 .avi's

Jeez, I don't know which option I should do myself now

Have you got your PC/living situation sorted out now?


Cheers
