Thanks for your kind words. :-)

Unfortunately, I can't easily implement the option to convert a single chapter. It's mainly because the MVC decoders cannot currently "seek" to a certain point in the original video files. Therefore, all pictures must be decoded sequentially, starting with the first one.

If you want to do a short test, you can easily edit the _ENCODE.cmd file to change the total number of frames to encode. The command to edit looks like this:
"D:\Tcl\work\BD3D2MK3D\toolset\avs2yuv.exe" ^
  "_ENCODE_3D_MOVIE.avs" -frames 132312 -o - ^
  | "D:\Tcl\work\BD3D2MK3D\toolset\x264_x64.exe" ^
  --crf 20 --preset slower --level 4.1 --vbv-bufsize 78125 --vbv-maxrate 62500 ^
  --threads 4 ^
  --frame-packing 3 --qpfile chapters_3D.qpfile --frames 132312 ^
  --output "00801.264" --demuxer y4m --stdin y4m -
As you can see (in blue) the number of frames is present two times (with the x64 option enabled), and you have to change the two occurrences. (If you encode in 32-bit, the number of frames is present only once in the command.)

If you need to encode exactly the first chapter, you can get the number of frames from the the "chapters_3D.qpfile" file. (Each line contains the frame number corresponding to the start of each chapter.)

With that trick, you can easily convert only the beginning of the file. But it is not possible to encode only a segment of the input file that doesn't start at the beginning.

I suggest also to use the "ultrafast" preset in the last tab, if disc space and image quality are not important for your test. You can also change the preset manually in the _ENCODE.cmd file (in purple above).
