Re: Downmix TrueHD+Atmos to EAC3 Atmos?

I am using the Windows version 1.2.2. Will try to locate a Linux system to verify issue is Windows-specific. However, in short-term may try to use ffmpeg directly to add the eac3 audio stream to the source MKV file so I can do a pass-thru to my output MP4 when encoding via Handbrake. Would love to g...

Re: Downmix TrueHD+Atmos to EAC3 Atmos?

Thanks @Rodeo Will you need a Handbrake activity log from me to ensure the issue gets submitted and addressed, or is my description above sufficient. I will be glad to test this when an update has been made :-) Also, it is my understanding I can't add an external audio track to a MP4 container from ...

Re: Downmix TrueHD+Atmos to EAC3 Atmos?

@Rodeo I do not see it in Handbrake 1.2.2. My MKV file has a TrueHD (7.1) audio channel but the only available codecs are aac, mp3, and ac3. All others are pass-through. To verify my understanding and what I am trying to do, I want to add an e-ac-3 audio channel when creating a m4v file in handbrake...

Re: Downmix TrueHD+Atmos to EAC3 Atmos?

Thank you @Rodeo. Sorry about the terminology issue. Atmos aside, is it possible to re-encode a lossless format like TrueHD as E-AC-3 so I can include it in the M4V container? I think ffmpeg supports it, but do not see an option for E-AC-3 in Handbrake other than passthru of the E-AC-3 audio stream.

Downmix TrueHD+Atmos to EAC3 Atmos?

Hello, I can't find a way to convert a True+Atmos audio stream to EAC3+Atmos in Handbrake. I want to do this because I am creating M4V files and EAC3+Atmos is supported in the m4v container but TrueHD+Atmos is not. It appears Handbrake does not have a downmix to EAC3 today. Is that true? If so, is t...

Re: Forced subtitle setting getting cleared

I flagged an English subtitle with forced. Behavior aligns with your assertion that I can't explicitly set forced as a default. I have noted that if the subtitle selection behavior is foreign audio preferred, else first track then "forced-only" is automatically set for me. But, if the selection beha...

Re: Forced subtitle setting getting cleared

Thanks. I have explicitly saved the updated preset first. This includes selecting "forced-only" in the subtitles tab before updating the preset. What I note is that when I later import a file with the same preset I'd previously saved the "forced-only" flag under subtitles is not checked anymore. Thi...

Re: Forced subtitle setting getting cleared

Thanks for responding. I apologize for not being clear. I understand what the behavior of the subtitle "forced only" flag is, and when it is enabled in an encoding I only see the forced subtitles in the encoded video. The issue I am having is the global flag "Forced only" that I set in the handbrake...

Forced subtitle setting getting cleared

Hi, I am frequently seeing an issue where I will set "forced only" for English subtitles in the handbrake UI (v 1.2.0) for videos I am batch processing, yet when I look at the handbrake log forced is set to false. It seems to be an intermittent problem, and I explicitly verify "forced" is set before...

Re: Best practice for blu-ray cropping

Thank you both for your guidance. Very helpful.

This thread makes me wonder whether there is a best practices document written up that covers all of the things to look for? I never would have thought to look for a cropping issue like we've discussed here.

Best practice for blu-ray cropping

Hi, I am interested in guidance from the community regarding best practices for cropping blu-ray movies. In most cases, auto-cropping does the right thing, but there are a fair number of cases where it crops too much. The approach I am using is to work in the Dimensions tab: * Cropping is set to Aut...

Re: Only seeing a single English subtitle track while MKV has 4 English tracks

Yep, quite confusing... What really matters, however, is that the first subtitle track with burn-in subtitles is used and any later subtitle tracks that have burn-in subtitles are removed by Handbrake. It seems the challenge in the Handbrake UI is how to clearly communicate this. That said, the 1.1....

Re: Only seeing a single English subtitle track while MKV has 4 English tracks

Thank you for confirming. To verify my understanding, Handbrake will automatically use the first PGS subtitle track when creating the MP4 files. The burn-ins of this PGS subtitle track are always included. Because of this, subsequent PGS subtitle tracks are ignored as they can't be added to the MP4 ...

Ah, that gets me further!

Re: Only seeing a single English subtitle track while MKV has 4 English tracks

I do have that button and I have tried adding additional tracks unsuccessfully. I tried:
* Add All Remaining Tracks
* Add All Remaining Closed Captions
* Add All Remaining Selected Languages

In all cases, no additional subtitle tracks were added.

Re: Only seeing a single English subtitle track while MKV has 4 English tracks

Thanks for responding BradleyS. To your question around selecting the second English subtitle track, the answer is no. This is because all other English subtitle tracks are completely hidden from me in the subtitle tab. I only see the foreign audio scan and first English subtitle track (which has bu...

I am sorry, but I think I've diverted this discussion off-track. The basic issue I initiated this thread with was that a change was made in 1.1.1 subtitle track selection behavior to hide all subtitle tracks that require burn-in after the first track (see below for the exact text in the release not...

Re: Only seeing a single English subtitle track while MKV has 4 English tracks

Output is MP4. So, I am a bit confused here. Understand the English subtitles will need to be burned in to the MP4 images. It was my previous understanding that what got explicitly burned in was extracted from: 1) Foreign audio track: both forced and burned-in subtitles in my case as I'd select both...

Re: Only seeing a single English subtitle track while MKV has 4 English tracks

You are correct. There are actually 5 English subtitle tracks.

I installed older Handbrake versions and found that 1.1.0 displays all 5 subtitle tracks, but 1.1.1 only displays a single one. Hope that helps.
