How to's

Convert interlaced 23.976fps to progressive 25fps

Special features:


With TV Rips with AC3 6ch audio it happens that the first frames have only 2 ch. In the encode audiostream section there is a button for this. If it is selected, the target file will be patched to full 6 ch. This button is only available if the source file is or contains an AC3 6ch file.

Another great thing is that you can convert the soundtrack of a 25 FPS PAL movie to an e.g. 23.976 FPS NTSC soundtrack or vice versa and, if desired, also adjust the audio pitch.


NB.
In case of startup errors or problems, delete this folder (it will be created again automatically):
C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\clever_FFmpeg_GUI (where xxx=your user name on windows).

The command line display is turned off in the normal versions, but I'll send you the latest beta (with activated checkbox) tomorrow with which you can display the command line, via PM.

Maybe have a look at 144 DPI (I'm at 288), it looks poor because High DPI support is not enabled. It can be enabled via API or manifest but the only proper fix is getting rid of WinForms, there are too many issues, it's hopeless and I regret having wasted so much time and effort with it.

Hi stax76

I don't have a High DPI Monitor and therefore i cannot test, if my app is compatible with High DPI.
I made some changes. Can you test for me if the display is correct now?

The first screen is High DPI enabled, opening a source file throws an exception shown by .NET Framework exception dialog and that dialog is unusable at 288 DPI, so I cannot post the stack trace.

At the first use you have to specify the location of ffmpeg, ffprobe and ffplay.

Many fine tunings.
