I also tried converting a DVD. Ffmpg.exe you want to use FFMpeg to do all this you can.
8×8 -subq 7 -trellis 1 -refs 5 -coder 0 -me_range 16 -keyint_min 25 -sc_threshold 40 -i_qfactor 0. 6 -qmin 10 -qmax 51 -qdiff 4 -level 30 -aspect 16:9 -r 30 -g 90 -async 2 output. Sean on the main screen you should have an import button at the bottom right hand corner. It will be under your current set of profiles next to a trash button. HD blu ray rips and just 16:9 for regular widescreen films. If you find one drop back by and let others know.
Full screen will be different depending on the format of your movie. You probably want to load up one of the presets and then tinker with the size to get it right. I’ve tried, regardless of original picture size or aspect ratio. Results just fit the full screen with the best image available from the data in the original file. BTW: People running non-current versions of Handbrake won’t be happy trying to import the presets. 1024X768 -r 30 -async 2 -aspect 16:9 -i foo. May 12 2010 12:23:51 with gcc 4.
576 is 16:9, not 4:3, isn’t it? Or is my math wrong somehow? In any case, thanks for posting the profiles. I imported them to Handbrake and they work seamlessly.
I’m very impressed, and you’ve simplified my life enormously. Carson, your post is much appreciated. Thanks for putting up your plists, saved me some work! Thanks for the presets, I was just wondering though, if you notice that the resulting video looks darker than the source material?
