chapterEditor(OGG,XML,TTXT,m.AVCHD,m.editions-mkv,Matroska Menu,DVD2mkv)+names db+CLI

Hi everyone

I have started for a while with a simple and small chapter Editor project.


The project has grown and now are 4 diffrent Format Editors avalible and an editor for muxing multi editions mkvs
(like Xin1Generator).


Multi-Editions-Editor (MEE):

With this editor you can backup your Blu-Ray to mkv.
If there are multiple editions on the BluRay, they can be stored in a space-saving mkv with "ordered chapters".

here an old Tutorial(with rev0.14)


Matroska Menu Editor (MME)

The new MME helping a while Matroska files (mkv, mka, mk3d) that are located in a folder and
the same specifications (number of tracks in the correct order and the same codecs for video, audio, subs) have,
to connect with each other via the menu.
In this case, no files need to be remuxed.
Tutorial-Video

DVD2mkv:
is a small tool to quickly mux the tracks on a DVD to a mkv. Functions for edit the mkv's are also available.

Greetings hubbleC4.

Would it be possible to add support for multiAVCHD chapter format?

Many thanks and best regards.

Code:
00:00:00.000	 	Chapter1Line1\nChapter1Line2\nChapter1Line3\nChapter1Line4	00:00:00.999
00:10:00.000	 	Chapter2Line1\nChapter2Line2\nChapter2Line3\nChapter2Line4	00:10:00.999
00:20:00.000	 	Chapter3Line1\nChapter3Line2\nChapter3Line3\nChapter3Line4	00:20:00.999

Note:
1) The time codes ending with 000 are chapter position.
2) The time codes ending with 999 are chapter thumb position.
3) Total of 4 descriptive lines supported, separated by \n.
4) Not clear about the field left blank.
The red colored time codes are the normal chapters and it will be easy to support it.

For what are the blue entries? (Maybe chapter names?)

The green time codes are these used for anything?

1. The blue entries are the chapter name(s). Dean provided a very generous 4 lines for this.

2. The green entries are the time position of the thumbs to appear in the chapters menu page.. If none specified, the midway point between the current and the next chapter is used.

3. There could be a 4th parameter sandwiched between time code and name, but could not figure out what it is. So use a <space> between the two <tab> characters.

The attached screen caps should be self explanatory.

I asked deank for the specs of his own chapter format.

brainstorming :

in what for a format would you convert the multiAVCHD.chapter?

// OGG
I can use the first timecode and the 4-Chaptername-Lines (generate one line with one chapter name) to convert it to ogg.chapter.
The last timecodes(thumbs) can not be used.

// XML
The firsttimecode is normal starttime.
The 4-Chaptername-Lines should be compressed to one line, because the chaptername-system in XML works different to the 4-Chaptername-Lines-system of multiAVCHD.
It is possible to generate more chapternames for the chaptertimestamp but the player will shown only the first chaptername at the moment. there is no splitter(or player) avalible that can handle this mkv-feature.
The last timecodes(thumbs) could be stored as nested chapters.

// 3GPP TTXT
The firsttimecode is normal starttime.
The 4-Chaptername-Lines can be saved in the same way. 3GPP TTXT supported Multi-chaptername-lines.
The last timecodes(thumbs) can not be used.


the chaptername-line are ever 4? what is when set no chaptername or only one chapterline, how looks the chapter.file now?

i hope deank will give me the specs then it will be easy to support it.

I would like to convert from others to multiAVCHD .txt format, so that multiAVCHD can process it.

It will look like (assuming no time code for thumb):

Code:
00:00:00.000
00:10:00.000	 	Chapter2Line1
Thanks and best regards.

i understand. multiAVCHD istn't able to handel other formats and you must set the chapters manually in the "chapter-editor-page" of multiAVCHD.
A solution will be i write a new own format editor for multiAVCHD which supports other formats. But i think this take a bit time.
without the right syntax of the chapter.files could be hard.

I will think about it, but i don't promise anything.

i have tested a bit multiAVCHD.
The chapters can saved with or without the chaptername(s) and the thumbtime.
without: the chapterformat is the same like Timecodes Text File (see the chapter sample folder).

multiAVCHD is able to handle to following chapter formats
- CCE SP Text File
- Celltimes Text
- HC Enc Text file
- Muxman
- OGG Chapter Text File
- Timecodes Text File

of what for a format you would like convert it to mulitAVCHD.chapter?

can you explain me what is the number right of the "apply"-button?

That is correct.
The multiAVCHD chapters txt file is basically a
Timecodes Text File with chapter name and thumbnail position.

I'm not familiar these formats, can they handle multi-line chapter name?

The number 12 in the screen cap?
That's the number of chapters multiAVCHD will create if the auto button is clicked.

Many thanks and best regards.

No, this formats store the chapter time only (timecodes or frames).
multiAVCHD works not perfect with frame-based chapter formats.
there is a standard source fps set (i think 24000/1001), but you can't change it.

ok. the number itself is not used in the chapter file.

at the moment i work on some fixes and improvements but i add it to my todo list.

i plan the same support like the other editors(formats,FPS,Naming,Time adjustment and cuting).

you would like to have a "auto" button to generate thumbnail positions?

what you need too?

but it will take a while, maybe on next revision.

Many thank and best regards.

hi mariner

i need your help to write a perfect procedur for the auto-thumbnail position button.

multiAVCHD set for the last chapter a thumbnail position thats greater as the chapter time. is this correct?
to generate the middle time of two chapters is easy but the last chapter has no next chapter.
Which time should be used?

Chapter time is used for thumbnail position if it is the last chapter.

Perhaps you'd like to consider doing the same for the other chapters as well. So if no thumbnail is specified, multiAVCHD can default to using the midway point for thumbnail position.
