Re: proposed 0.9.4 presets

that means encoding with x264 at CQ 59%, audio (I think) is ac3 track encoded to aac at 160 kbps, mkv container, and the rest (minus the --detelecine --decomb part) just goes in the x264 settings box.

Because compression can make files smaller at negligible quality loss and subtitles are lovely when a movie isn't in a language you understand.

Re: DVD -> H.264 CQ62%, very large file results

If even 3 GB is too large for comfort, you could consider dropping the CQ value down a point or two. With all that grain, it might not make too much of a difference.

No, you're not using the same settings.

Re: EEDI2 Port

Just to clarify my earlier tests, I used standard DVDs of the tested Black Adder episode, encoded at the same resolution as on the dvd. The screenshots are 1440 x 900 since that's my screen's resolution. To take screenshots, I opened the files in quicktime (to allow for multiple open files at once) ...

Sorry for the confusion, I'd forgotten that the custom string box had been replaced after it was removed from the Preferences Pane. Anyway, here are my results so far.

Re: EEDI2 Port

Ok, running new encodes using the CLI. Just to make sure before I run it, could I turn off decomb in the CLI using --decomb=0:0? I've been looking through the old decomb threads but there's no clear answer that I kind see.

Re: Does Apple Universal preset play on a PS3?

Universal should include both stereo and surround tracks, and the inclusion of that surround track is what the PS3 can't handle. I cannot vouch for this since I don't own a PS3, but maybe if you just modify the universal preset by cutting out the AC3 (surrond) passthrough in the encode, then it migh...

This is very minor, but I wonder if it would make it at all more clear to new users where to find the activity log they so often disregard if the button "Activity Window" in the Mac GUI were renamed "Activity Log?"

try rechecking out, running ./configure, then running ./jam. I know it's not how we're supposed to build it, but maybe it'll work. You could then run make afterwards.

SVN 2119: can't use DRC = 0 in GUI?

Just compiled latest SVN, hoping to be able to take advantage of getting rid of DRC. I know it says that the interface still assumes default as DRC = 1, but is there anyway to actually set it to 0 yet, or is the code just there, waiting to be implemented? Turning the DRC dial just makes it go up...
