Sorry for dropping off the face of the earth man. I had every intention of helping out in some way, and then LIFE happened . Needless to say, BeHappy is rocking! You've been doing awesome work. Me and everyone else using it gives you thanks!

Use NicAc3Source with DRC and after Normalize at desired level.

i have 3 little queries about ac3/dts to aac encoding:

1.if my source is 2-ch 192kbps ac3, which out of drc source,normalize to 100 percent and dpl2 downmix options should i use?

2.in what order should normalize and dpl2 downmix options should come, i mean, which should come first and which after that?

3. for muxing in mp4 container, should i use .aac conatainer output encoding or .m4a container output encoding?

thanks in advance, by the way, behappy rocks!

1. for stereo encoding's don't use dominix
2. first dominix and then normalize (but i think is the same when is inverted)
3. mp4 is better choice, because sometimes must to singnal HE-AAC when muxing, and muxers can't detect propertly HE-AAC files.

Is not the same. First downmix and after normalize.

When normalize over 6 channels the max peak of all channels is used to calculate the common gain applied to all channels.

After downmix, (to avoid clipping problems, the coeficients in downmix matrix must sum only 1.0) the resultant 2 channels never are normalized.

Only if all 6 input channels have a equal max peak at same time is the same.

Hello,

I have one very basic question: Why the NicAudio.dll isn't loaded? The script created by BeHappy doesen't work. It reports there is no command called NicAC3Source. I think there sould be something like LoadPlugin("NicAudio.dll"). Of course I have this file in my AviSynth plugin's directory. Why isn't BeHappy working for me?

Sorry for this very basic question, but I couldn't find the answer anywhere.

Sometimes some software can modify HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AviSynth registry key, check it to know wich ACTUAL dir is AviSynth plugin dir

Maybe this should be default in the GUI then?

Yes, for habitual jobs Normalize() is the last DSP to be used.
I don't remember if is the default but, if you use Move Down, the next time you use BeHappy your order is preserved.

dimzon> So if I have a plugin in AviSynth plugin's folder, there should be no need to load the plugin in script? I didn't know that.

Anyway I installed the package from shon3i and BeHappy started working. I have no idea what was wrong.

Maybe you don't haved nicaudio.dll in avisynth plugins folder, or avisynth use other path for plugins(stored in registry, look dimzon's post above) and my setup use this path and find right plugins folder on system

Fresh package is out.

Now support BassAudio which means more input file types supported directly (wav/ogg/aiff/mp3/mp2/wma/flac/wv/ape/mpc/spx/aac/m4a/mp4/ac3)

but have some minor bugs and restrictions like

- aac decode don't work for 5.1 multichannel. Better to use DirectShowSource
- stereo ac3 (2.0) don't work. NicAC3 is better

And i found that ape (Monkey's Audio) don't work propertly
