Been using madVR from the start but decided a year ago to switch to a Dune player. This still does not satisfy me so I decided to switch back to HTPC.
After a clean install of my system and installing all lastest drivers, MPC-HC, ffDSHOW and madVR some first questions are here:1.
what pixel format output do I pick at the ATI CCC settings?
yCbCr 4:4:4 Pixel Format
yCbCr 4:2:2 Pixel Format
RGB 4:4:4 Pixel Format Studio (Limited RGB)
RGB 4:4:4 Pixel Format PC Standard (Full RGB)2.
the ATI CCC got some new function I see. There is 'Brighter Whites' which can be enabled/disabled. I can imagine this will be important to set this on or off. What to choose here?3.
Dynamic range can be altered in the ATI CCC settings Just leave this off?4.
PullDown detection and Smooth Video Playback in the ATI CCC. On or Off?5.
FFdshow: only check output YV12?6.
madVR. I see that madVR got decoding options! Check all and use ffmpeg software decoder? Or is ffdshow decoder still better to use?7.
What are some good algorithms settings to use? Looking for some (basic) settings that can be used for all type of movies that do not cause too much artifacts.8.
See a lot of new rendering options since the first versions of madVR. Is there a guide somewhere to find out what they do/which make quality better?
Maybe more questions will come but I think this is enough for now
EDIT: And of course my setup:
HTPC with ATI 5450, Core2Quad Q9550 oc, 8gb DDR3 1333.
JVC RS25 projector
