As you can see it process the correct number of frames but the .h264 file is empty.

Please can someone help.
I tried this in Windows 7 so I think it might have something to do with Windows 10. Please can anyone help.

What I meant to say was that it worker in windows 7. So I think that windows 10 broke it.

OK I solved it. I reinstalled premiere pro and all was well. The i420 problem using avisynth still does not work but at least I can use premiere. Thanks

Found a way to speedup frimencode

In premiere pro I tried rendering the first sequence with 2 video tracks to an intermediate using cineform. I then imported this back into Premiere and then exported it with Frimencode This was alot faster than exporting a sequence with a sequence in it. Frim encoding was about 14 times faster but encoding to an intermediate does take time.

SBS MP4 to MVC 3D?

Howdy folks!
I've been trying to convert an NVIDIA 3D Vision 1080p60 gameplay recording in full-resolution SBS MP4 format to a single MVC 3D MKV (like BD3D MakeMKV rips) with the hopes of saving HDD space by encoding redundant data efficiently without losing significant quality.
But so far, I've only gotten errors and corrupted (colored static) video files and I'm not sure what I'm missing/doing wrong.

Here's how the output file looks:

[QUOTE=3DJ;1969736]Howdy folks!
FRIMEncode input must be planar YUV (more precisely yv12 pixel format) - not any kind of compressed container.

Also output is elementary stream .h264/.mvc which need to be multiplexed using tsMuxer.

Finally, I'm worried that 1080p60 is not standard for 3D-Bluray.
I always used only 1080p24 with my videos.

Woah, so the input must be a raw video? That sounds quite impractical, unless there's a way to pipe an ffmpeg uncompressed stream to avoid having to waste hundreds if not thousands of GBs?
The full video is like ~6hrs of 1080p60 3D (Side by Side so 2160 horizontal pixels).
I usually just upload my 3D videos onto YouTube but the quality drops noticeably even at "4K" resolution so I just wanted a more efficient method to store my 3D videos locally.

Certainly you can connect using pipes.
Check the FRIMEncode_readme.pdf document in the package and make few experiments - I'm sure you will find how to use it.

Hi,

I would like to know if it's possible to create mkv with the combined output h264/mvc ?
When I use MkvToolNix, impossible to read with Sterescopic Player.

Thanks in advance.

Combined h264/mvc is specific elementary stream containing frames of both main-view and dependent-view, suitably multiplexed.
It is (probably) rarely used part of h264 MVC standard. As such, I doubt there is any available decoder who can even read it.

Furthermore to my knowledge, dependent view MVC elementary stream is not supported by MKVToolNix.
Author said in past that he will implement it if there will be demand but he wants to do it right.
Nowadays with decline of 3D I'd say there won't be any demand anymore. There are also no more mediaplayers capable of 3D.
Pity...
