Don't remember what MeGUI does in that mode, but you can do batch encoding (drag&drop a folder or tons of files as input, adjust configuration and create tons of jobs).

@OrangeColaJuice: Had some time to look at the 'force 444 downsample'-option and I noticed that I never properly implemented support for it in Vapoursynth and Avisynth.
I fixed that (hopefully) and send you a link to a dev version via pm. (link will be active for ~24hrs)

Hybrid 2023.03.17.1

I just finished my first test of Hybrid (handy tool, btw, for one-off jobs when I'm not in Avisynth mode) and found that the x265 option does not set PAR properly (well, not with an ordinary NTSC DVD 720x480i 4:3 source anyhow). The current workaround is to set PAR manually by adding it to the x265 command line with `--sar 8:9` for example.

The weird thing is, when packaging to MKV, the PAR appears to be set correctly according to both MediaInfo "DAR 4:3" and ffprobe "SAR 8:9 DAR 4:3". VLC also plays it correctly. Roku, however, does not play it correctly but instead plays it with 1:1 PAR (DAR 3:2). (I didn't dig deeper with ffprobe to try to find the exact missing data point.)

I've learned over the years that whenever I have trouble with an MKV, I should first test it as an MP4. MediaInfo gives more/better details on MP4s and ffmpeg somehow works better--or gives better messages--with MP4s. (MakeMKV, for example, does not build MKVs from DVDs that trim well because it fails to do the equivalent of `ffmpeg -fflags +genpts` -- which does not always work when transcoding MKV-to-MKV for some reason.)

Thus, when I tried packing with Hybrid to MP4 instead, nothing liked the result. MediaInfo showed DAR 3:2, ffprobe showed SAR and DAR metadata to be absent, and both VLC and Roku played it in 3:2 instead of 4:3.

I poked around at various setting for a few hours running many tests, trying to find some conflict somewhere, but found nothing that helped the PAR setting and ultimately looked up x265 switches and tried adding `--sar x:y`. Oh, yes, I also tested x264 and that worked fine as well.

This is using primarily all the default settings as installed. I didn't change anything surprising (except during troubleshooting). That is, I set video to x265, audio to passthrough, default container to MKV; x265 CRF to 19 (and others during testing), preset to Slow (and others), profile to Main (8-bit); left deint at GTGMC (Vapoursynth), set its preset to Very Slow and checked Bob. That's it.

All the boxes that show detected input PAR (such as in Crop/Resize) correctly show 8x9. The main Base tab correctly shows PAR 0.889 in the video summary.

The only other thing I found was that videos from Hybrid don't set the progressive metadata flag like ffmpeg does, but forcing that didn't change anything either since progressive is the default for x265 anyhow.

I'll look into the 8:9 sar issue.

Auto deint: VIVTC > VDecimate tab > Cycle

Changing the Cycle does not change the output frame rate or count, like it does with TIVTC > TDecimate > Cycle. Assuming, that is, cycle is number of frames out of which to drop 1 frame.

Hi, sadly the Linux dependency builds are broken atm.
(see: https://github.com/Selur/hybrid-vapoursynth-addon)
If someone gets neo-vague-denoise (vsvaguedenoise is gone) and vslsmashsource to compile, please let me know.
=> if someone can help with the Linux builds, please let me know. (Don't have the time to look into it really myself and without these, I probably will remove the .deb package)

Small heads-up for the Linux users: I probably won't build any new Linux builds since it's more and a hassle to build all the dependencies (especially VS plugins), Hybrid then will be Windows only.
