Of course, you wouldn't be able to enjoy it much after you produced it. biggrin.gif  

Couldn't even test it.

There is a free 3D player that you/we could use for testing, it uses side by side 3D; active 3D grasses are still needed you want to actually see (pun intended) the results. BTW, don't know if you are aware that TmuxeR has been developed to support 3D, which would make things easier. Can download the latest TmuxeR version at doom9.

First, I would suggest MakeMKV. It's much faster, though you need to process one file at a time (ie, load the index file so it knows what's on the disc, then select one title at a time). The other caveat is that you need to select (if you want it) the high def audio:




Rename the resulting file (since the next one will default to the same name), and just work down the list. A couple don't work (00007 and 00013), for which you'll need to use handbrake. Again, you need to select the high def audio output:




For the video, you'll need to experiment depending on your output device. For me, the default of 20 was horrible; 18 was okay, 15 was great but probably overkill. There are other threads and arguments on that topic. Pick your poison.

I'm not set up for it, but I couldn't get iTunes to read the mkv files, so you might want to check that before you go through the rest of the trouble.
And, by all means, let us know!
Michael

I'm trying to handbrake this for my Apple TV2 and I think I'm missing some steps here. Does MakeMKV turn the clips into one file that HB can handle? How exactly do I handle clips 00007 and 00013 that don't work?

Thanks in advance.

Just put each file individually into handbrake.

The other poster wanted mkv files specifically. You can get AppleTV files from the m2ts files directly.

Oh ok - so there's no way to get this as one file with different chapters for each clip for my Apple TV?

Downloaded (and seeded) over the weekend - followed SherazNJ's simple instructions to create the files/folders on a USB memory stick - stuck the stick in my PS3, fired everything up and it worked perfectly first time! A huge thanks to all involved in putting this together! I've dinked around with ways to show off my HT over a period of several years, but I can now leave the tiny USB stick permanently in one of the 4 PS3 USB slots and have instant access to the great content. I love it!

Thanks again for all of your efforts - it's what makes AVS such a great place!

It just dawned on me that having the content loaded on to a USB memory stick would make a great present for some of my more HT-oriented friends.

I burned this disc using ImageBurn as a UDF 2.5 disc, but I'm having a lot of problems playing this on my PS3. Most of the videos start, but then the sound goes silent in the middle of some of them. Has anyone else had this problem?

I have a similar problem when I run the downloaded content from my laptop.
But I am assuming that when i burn this onto the DVD, it might work fine.

I had similar issues. I then used USB and it worked fine. Here are the steps I defined in the post. Try doing same with dvd and see if it works ( I haven't though) but it definitely works with USB.

Sorry for double post, but I am unable to edit the previous post and append this information to it.


I am having the same problem. I converted about 5 other demo disks with MultiAVCHD to play on my Oppo through network hard drive and it worked flawlessly but the Best Of disk gives me an error in MultiAVCHD.

Perhaps the error message here or on the MultiAVCHD support page might mean something to someone.

I have attached some pictures of what happens. When I select to import all the file it wants to create ends up being over 60GB.

I'm surprised (and sorry) no one's jumped in. I don't use multiAVCHD, but my understanding is that that is a bug, not an error. Ignore it, make sure you've selected PS3 format, and let it run.

And keep us posted.

Same here. Something is set up wrong in multiAVCHD but I have yet to figure it out.

The BDMV file burned on a 25GB BD looks very good - but..... mad.gif

I'm just checking back and saw the questions about MultiAVCHD.

In order to reauthor the disc so it will play from a thumb-drive / external drive for the PS3 you drag/drop the entire BDMV folder into MultiAVCHD. Then it will let you know you reauthoring a dicc, just say Ok. Let it process the files, when its done processing chose the "Sony PS3" button. I believe the calculated space to be process is an incorrect number, you should need, if anything, just a little more space than the size of the disc being processed.

After it finishes processing the files the new reauthor disc is under the MultiAVCHD folder. It created a new folder BDRA. You copy this folder to the external drive. Once copied renamed the BDRA to AVCHD.

I selected AVSHD instead of PS3. The program chugs along for an hour or more and then crashes.

I burned from the file provided, i did not convert to AVSHD.

It skips in my Samsung BD P1600 to the point its not watchable. Is it time for me to buy a new blu ray player or is something else wrong?

Enjoy the movie.

Now one thing I wand to do is to have multiple movies on usb. My usb is 35 GB and I want to copy more. Does anyone know if I can copy multiple movies on USB?

th.

I'm assuming the USB needs to be FAT formatted and not NTFS.
