Hi and thanks for this great tool.

I was wondering what settings are you guys using for uncropping. I read that simple 1 pass would do the job, but how is quality affected compared to the original? Have you tried a comparison to the original mkv in a big screen with a projector? I tried various modes and then with mediainfo I can see that each mode has different parameters which are very different to the original mkv. Is this changing the original mkv entirely like being a different encode? I'm really worried about quality. In such a case, which mode should I use?

Thank you for your feedback.

@shabadaus: Can you check if your video is PAL (25.000fps) and that you're using the latest multiAVCHD build. Also - can you post your log?

@koutou: Transcoding/uncropping in both multiAVCHD and uncropMKV means "full reencode" of the video with x264 encoder. Of course it will have different 'settings' than the original. "1 pass", "1 pass Turbo" are good choices. You need to do your own test to see if you can see the difference in quality.

tank Dean for your tool.
yes the video encoded was in pal format 25fps and the build use is 715. I can't post the log because I have discarged it after the encode procedure.
My ps3 is ntsc, but i am in Italy. What is the procedure to create a avchd for my ps3 using pal video?

Ciao e grazie for your help

Build 715 should slowdown the video from 25fps to 23.976.

1) Go to AUTHOR tab and select NTSC tv system
2) Load the file
3) Click START and then "Playstation 3"

You should see a line in the log that multiAVCHD is performing NTSC slowdown.

Let me know if it works.

Yeah, okay.. then just use "AVCHD for optical media" button.

Before you burn the output BDMV folder make sure to check the log for the slowdown lines I mentioned earlier.

Dean,
using the ntsc down in ps3 tag the result avchd copied on usb support is played on my ps3, but there is a
loss of synchronization between audio and video.
The conversion from pal to ntsc works only on video? if the answer is yes, do you know some prog that converts audio and video from pal to ntsc?

It should work for both video and audio. Unless you give me more info - I can't help you. The log should show using eac3to for audio slowdown.

Build 716:

* Few small fixes and "Media" tab changes:



"Transcode" button is now available directly in MEDIA TAB. Clicking it will open "Title properties" and if transcode is available for the selected file, "Transcode" window will automatically appear, too.

Don't forget that you can open title properties by:

Selecting the file/title in the list and
* Clicking "EDIT"
* Clicking the info-line just below the file list
* Clicking "TRANSCODE" button

or

* Just clicking the title name in the "Compilation" box

I wonder how it is so many people NEVER got to the extended properties of a title ("Title properties" window).

Because we don't see at the first time that we can click on the file names in the compilation box. It doesn't look interactive.

The reason is that you computer cannot properly decode .m2ts files. I'd suggest you to uninstall haali splitter and when installing it back to tick MPEG-PS and MPEG-TS checkboxes.

You can test if it is okay by importing a M2TS file in multiAVCHD and check if you can see preview in Title properties / Transcode. If you have a preview with m2ts files there - you will get the thumbnails, too.

Preview works, with a single .mts file, and when adding an AVCHD folder, so multiple m2ts files in 1 title works too.



But when i press start, and it tries to make a menu at the end of the process. still gives these errors.

I meant the LITTLE PREVIEW BOX on the left-top (where you see multiavchd.deanbg.com) - it should show a frame from your video.

3x3 preview works, because mplayer is used, not directshow and this won't help you. It may help if you uncheck [x] Use directshow option in Menu TAB...

You should see it like this:

Last week I installed Windows7 64bit JUST to try if multiAVCHD will work properly and I had no problems with it.

What I did was to install ffdshow, avisynth and haali splitter - nothing else and the clean install of win7 worked with multiAVCHD as a charm with the first try.

If you have some weird codec packs installed - uninstall them and start again (if you have the nerves).

You seem to use 'poster' images, which make it work. If you can't get the chapter thumbnails to be created then you can't get 'title thumbnails' to be created either.

Frankly, I have no ideas how to solve your troubles at the moment.

multiAVCHD just finished processing. The other computer running BD-Rebuilder on a different VC-1 movie... is still running. ETA on that is another 64 hours. IF that is actually true. IT will have taken it almost 3.5 days to process. A total of the 64 it has left, but the 22 hours it has allready been processing! I knew there was a reason why I only use one comptuer to process video. I hope it doesn't take as long if I can get it to run on my video system.

One step forward... one step back.

It converted the VC-1 Video to H.264 like I wanted...Yipeee! Finally! & the video even played just fine (At least on the computer it did. Don't know about the BD390 or TiVo yet. Will check on that later).

NOW the problem is... the resulting M2TS file it created has a massive Audio/Video Synch problem to it. Whats up with that?

What I am trying now is this.. I am demuxing the h.264 file from the M2TS file it created, and then I will remux with the original AC3 file that was demuxed from the original M2TS file off the Blu-ray. It probably won't work, but since it only takes about 15 min to demux and remux I thought I would give it a try & of course that didn't work either. The Audio/Video synch is all out of wack.

Any ideas now on either how to get multiAVCH to do it correctly, or to fix the issue by other means?
