Passtru in simple steps

Post by xbmcgotham » Thu Dec 06, 2018 4:33 pm

Description of problem or question:

Hi, I am trying to figure out how to configure Handbrake to allow for converting a DVD 9 which has DTS 5.1 audio included. I have read through the forum, but get lost in the scripts and incomplete replies.

I was hoping that someone can show me step by step the GUI settings to select so that I can Convert the DVD to MP4 but keep the original DTS 5.1 audio without changing it.

Hope someone can clarify for me. :-)

Thanks a lot!


HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

1.1.2


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

Mac

DTS in mp4 is not really supported so you probably shouldn’t do it.

Thanks for the quick response.

What if I chose a different container? Which one would be best, and what do I need to select (steps please) to make the 5.1 go through, as is?

If you had provided the required log, we could see if you are allowing DTS pass-through in your settings. As mentioned, the container makes a difference, but the preset might still limit the pass through.

MKV. On the audio tab select Selection Behavior, and adjust as desired. Then save a new preset for your use.

@BradleyS

Sorry for my confusion.

When I have the "Selection Behaviour" window open, Under the "Auto Passtru" option, by default, AAC and AC3 are selected.
>>> So I would select additionally DTS and DTS-HD in my case?
>>> And than I leave "Passtru Fallback" to default (AAC)?

>>> What do I do with the "Audio encoder settings for each selected track"? By default it shows:

AAC | Dolby Pro Logic II | auto | 160 | 0 | 0 |
AC3 | 5.1 Channels | Auto | 640 | 0 | 0 |

Once I click "OK" it saves it.

Than under "Audio Tracks" It only displays:

0: English (LPCM)(2.0 ch) | AAC | Stereo | Auto | 160 | 0 | 0 |
0: English (LPCM)(2.0 ch) | AC3 | Stereo | Auto | 640 | 0 | 0 |

>>> Is this correct? Don't I need to see the DTS options mentioned with "passtru" set?

Thanks for helping.

Not sure why you want a activity log, as I have not yet run anything. Just need to know what to select. However below is the log:

Re: Passtru in simple steps

Post by BradleyS » Fri Dec 07, 2018 2:15 pm

The auto passthru is which codecs you want to allow for passing through. This is used to ensure compatibility. So select the codecs you intend to pass through.

The fallback encoder is what is used if you request a general pass through (anything) and a matching track's type isn't approved in that list.

The track selection is what will actually be attempted. Any pass through tracks will follow the aforementioned rules.

So make sure your desired codec is checked (DTS), the fallback can be whatever you wish, and set up the tracks how you want them. Upon clicking okay, back on the audio tab you can select reload and it will use your rules to make a new track list. Save a preset to use these rules in the future.

Here's an example you might like. Say I want either Dolby Digital (AC3) or DTS passed through, no re-encoding. Starting with one of the official surround presets that have AAC+AC3, I can set the audio selection behavior as follows: AC3 and DTS checked, fallback pick whichever I prefer, and make sure the list has one Auto Passthru track (can leave the AAC track also if you want). Then a source with AC3 or DTS audio will pass through that track, and if it's some other codec it will be encoded using the fallback encoder I selected.

Aside, logs can be helpful in these situations because they reveal what audio tracks your source has.

Hi, thanks for trying to explain.

I think the confusion is still because of the way certain things are being displayed.

Please look at my settings:

https://ibb.co/1LYfmcJ

I select the passtru types. Than I select the tracks. I chose DTS Passtru and DTS-HD Passtru (These are part of the DVD 9), however, it will still show the mixdown option "Dolby pro logic II" for both. If its a passtru, should it not display "None" for mixdown? I guess this "none" option is not yet made available in the dropdown menu?

I just leave it as is and click OK, followed by clicking "Reload" in audio section.

https://ibb.co/JrPmr39

However after clicking reload, none of my preselected tracks and options are shown. I am just getting confused here. :?:

Well, your source audio is LPCM according to that. Since you asked to pass through DTS, it's using the fallback encoder you selected.

I was suggesting you use Auto Passthru not DTS Passthru, but I guess it depends on what you're trying to achieve.

What audio formats do you want in your output? What if the source is the same kind? What if it's not?

Hi,

For this particular conversion, the source is as followed:

DVD 9
Stereo PCM Audio
Dolby Digital 5.1
DTS

I like to convert this DVD 9 to a single video file that will support copying the available surround audio (Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS) as is. I guess mkv is the best option for the video. I only need to understand what to select in the Handbrake options to make this conversion successful with copying the audio as is.

Thanks

Okay, that makes sense.

Since the first audio track is LPCM, that's what's being picked up by "First Matching Selected Languages". Perhaps you will want to change that to "All Matching Selected Languages". Then check all the passthru boxes and set fallback to FLAC (like LPCM but losslessly compressed). Then add one Auto Passthru track.

This Is what I understand so far from your reply:

https://ibb.co/rk4TFJK

Not sure what you want me to select for
Then add one Auto Passthru track.
Do you mean just like this and click"OK"? Any other selection to chose for the Mixdown option?

https://ibb.co/5WnqvVL

After clicking "OK" and clicking "Reload" in Audio tab, I get the following returned.

https://ibb.co/7pW11G2

It tells me that DTS is passtru, but AC3 (5.1 ch) is being mix downed to "Dolby Pro Logic II". Is this correct? I thought the Dolby Digital 5.1 would also have passtru like DTS?

Where you have DTS Passthru in the second screenshot, change it to Auto Passthru.

Thanks for your response.

This changed it, and now AC3 5.1 ch and DTS 5.1 ch both have "xxx passthru" under Codec.

Am I correct in saying that the value of "Dolby Pro Logic II" for "Mixdown" under "Audio encoder settings for each selected track" (Selection Behaviour | Second screenshot) should have been grayed out and is of no service in this setup?
