DRC

Has the DRC changed in anyway sine 0.9.3 and SVN 2233? I've always set it at 1.25 to add a very slight compression, but now it doesn't seem to be working as well? Also is there a scale that you guys have the DRC settings at. I'm a sound guys and am used to seeing compression set in a scale stated so...

Re: Blu-Ray or DVD Universal Preset

So...

I'm guessing once encoded with your settings and all tags etc. are the same. I just drag and drop into one movie file?

Re: Post Your "Best Settings" here and Why.

First off, what are you trying to encode that ends up at 4gb on the Universal setting? This seems a little big if you ask me. Nate It's a musical DVD, a David Gilmour's concert. It weights about 8 GB (that includes menus, subtitles, maybe extras and all the stuff, I mean, this is all the disc, the ...

Sorry to chip in here, I just wanted to point something out. I deal with this every day as a sound engineer. When you pass audio through any digital device it will introduce up to 3ms in delay due to processing. The actual time always depend on the quality of the decoder etc. in the TV or ATV and th...

Thanks. All. I did go and buy a AppleTV, and honestly the quality from the iPhone & Touch profile looks good enough that I am sticking with it.

Re: Advanced Bluray/HDDVD Workflow & Features Discussion

Just an observation and a question. Built into AC3 information is code that tells home amplifiers how much compression to use when using the 'Night' settings, or Compression settings at Min. or Max. There are very few systems and encodes that work the same way for DTS. So what's interesting is that ...

iMovie and MPEG4 AVC/H.264 Editing

iMovie 09 can now edit the MPEG4 AVC/H.264 natively without converting to the Apple format or DV which bloats the file size around 8x.

Re: Film vs Universal Preset / whats best for 61" TV?

You need to decide your playback device 1st, else you may end up encoding way to many times as some devices support ac3 passthrough, some don't link ac3 in the file. The list goes on, and on. Each one changes how you will encode your movies etc. I would strongly recommend an AppleTV, as its seems to...
