Re: Deinterlacing

The only deinterlacing/decombing filter that will produce results as smooth as broadcast quality video for true video sources (shot with video cameras, not film cameras) is the "bob" filter. It produces progressive 60fps (North America) or 50fps (Europe/Australia) video with that characteristic smoo...

Re: Here Comes Bob!

In fact one of the outstanding issues (offtopic to this thread) i still have is rips of movies at 23.97fps or whatever it is, where my playback machine is a Mac Mini with an Intel HD3000 graphics interface which can't match that as a refresh rate, but only 24Hz exactly; so every now and then - I th...

Re: Here Comes Bob!

I think it may depend on the way it's been interlaced in the source: I've found for instance now that for interlaced and not telecined dvd and bluray sources, a decomb-bob allowing variable frame rate works well, but the same thing on a programme recorded off-air from BBC HD does not; I get the jer...

Re: H.265

Wow this is the first time I've heard of h265. I just looked it up on wikipedia. So it's supposed to be 2X as efficient. So right now I'm encoding my 720p rips (1280x720) at 3000k/sec with 2-pass and am happy with the results. That means I'll be able to do the same thing at about 1500k/sec. HD quali...

Re: Here Comes Bob!

I just did a test on my other machine, my HTPC. I just bought a new board/cpu last week for it, it's only an entry level system (by today's standards) with an AMD-FX 4100 4-core CPU that I picked up for $110. But at least i'm getting 10fps on that one, so it seems to be at least 2X as fast as my old...

Re: Here Comes Bob!

okay i got it, I guess the output/status messages aren't correct yet. It says 29.97 but it's really doing 59.94. I opened the resulting test file in mediainfo and it reports it fine and is silky smooth :-) I get an encoding speed of a wonderful 3.5 fps on my Core2 Duo with the decomb/bob filter. lol...

Re: Here Comes Bob!

hrmm, yeah I must be doing something wrong. I can get it working in the GUI, but on the CLI neither of those work. My output keeps saying" [15:12:32] + frame rate: same as source (around 29.970 fps) [15:12:32] + filters [15:12:32] + Decomb (455) [15:12:32] + Framerate Shaper (0:27000000:900900) [15:...

Re: Here Comes Bob!

Awesome, I've been waiting for this feature forever ;-) Handbrake is now perfect.

How exactly do you call this from the Command-Line version? Is it "--deinterlace Bob" ? doesn't seem to work for me in the CLI.

Re: How to tell when to detelecine

The video is probably a combination of both Telecined film footage (23.976) and NTSC/ATSC video footage (29.97). Lots of documentaries in NTSC-Land are like this. The only way to handle them in Handbrake is it to use Variable-framerate with BOTH the ivtc filter and decombing filters on . This isn't ...

Re: 4:1 telecine on Family Channel in Canada, what do I do?

Thanks for the reply. You're right, "ABCDD" is the right way of explaining it. I've just never seen it before, usually telecine is field-based as far as I've seen, but I'll take your word for it. Yeah I use VideoREDO to edit out the leading/ending footage before the start-times and end-times of my p...

4:1 telecine on Family Channel in Canada, what do I do?

I noticed something strange about Family channel HD that I've never seen any other channel ever do. During shows like, "Shake it Up", they seem to be using some sort of 4:1 pulldown telecine. The show is originally a Disney Channel show, and like all Disney Channel shows these days it's shot in 720p...

Proper Motion Compensated deinterlacer (ala Snell)

This would be my dream feature. I say Dream because I've never seen any piece of general consumer grade video encoding software (open source or not) ever include it. I would love to see a proper form of " Motion Compensated deinterlacing and standards conversion using proper tweening " To give you a...

Re: How to batch convert in a simple way?

I've been using a script that I've written awhile ago that does much exactly you asked. It's for handbrakeCLI and I use this in Ubuntu Linux. For this to make sense I'll have to explain a bit about my workflow. I convert a LOT of videos recorded from my PC based PVR-machine (MythTV). First after rec...
