If you want FREE BD authoring --- MultiAVCHD, it will give you several options for menus and will author the disc with out reencoding the video and audio, plus it handles DTS-HD and Dolby-HD audio.

It also has some built in tools that might be useful.

I just found this interesting thread and about to start reading it. I also want to start clipping interesting parts.

What is the best software to get original quaility audio and video without loss?

Appreciate if you can share tips on clipping special effects from my collection.

DVD Fab (30 day trial free) works great for decrypting and ripping movies or individual chapters. Then use the free program called TXMuxor to make sections smaller than a chapter for a demo disk. Those programs compliments of a pm from scuba steve to me. I've used them to great advantage in clipping some of my disks for an upcoming subwoofer meet. Now I have to play with some authoring software so I can through them on a disk for the meet (otherwise I can just play them with my HTPC).

That's the part I've always had trouble with. Tried several different ways of getting AVCHD to burn/play, all unsuccessful. Good luck.
And have fun at this year's meet!

what are some of the authoring software you use? Anyone that can work with getting mkv to blu-ray?

complicated! I looked through it after downloading!!!...I don't see how to save the lossless audio formats...It appears to want to convert everything to AC3. Am I missing something? I have both DVD and BluRay clips from my collection of discs and I want to make sure I'm getting full lossless audio quality with DD HD and DTS MA with my clips when it is applicable. Heck I spent the time making these 1 chapter clips from my media, why stop short now?

Basically I have about 20 different 1-2 minute movie clips that I want in a single file line up to play. I'd take simple disk menus, or I could go without them and just throw the disk in and it plays (which might be better for the purposes of the subwoofer audition I'm planning) --- EXCEPT that I may need a rewind functionality, or track skip/select in the event we need to replay a clip and not the whole 20-30 minute group of clips.

Another question. ScubaSteve mentioned via PM to me that I could use TSMuxor to make a generic bluray disk using my created clips.
Here is the instruction he provided:

Archaea Red, ScubaSteve Blue

Do you have a recommendation of software to use to cut some bluray clips to length for demo material? I'm hosting another subwoofer meet in January with some top notch subs and would like to have about 5-10 custom clips to use. I don't care about the demo disk creation for this project - just running the individual clips thorugh a media player like VLC is sufficient for this particular task. I'd like to get a couple clips that aren't on your current two released disks to be included in the meet.

It's a two step process.

1) Get the Bluray Disc decrypted and onto your harddrive.

2) Find and trim clip to length.

You can do both step #1 and #2 with DVD-Fab but you'll be limited to a complete chapter for the trimming.

For more precise trimming use TSMuxer. It's a free program if you google for it.



Can you confirm I did this right and am not losing any audio quality? The process worked, but the file is smaller than I expected.

I downloaded DVD FAB. I clicked Main Movie, selected the longest clip (the movie) - changed the quality to DVD-9 from the quality drop down and selected the DTS audio track in the right menu payne. I then ripped the DVD to a folder. The final product was 4.5GB or so. I then downloaded TSmuxor and loaded the DVD file. I changed the output location and went to the ""split and cut"" tab. I chose enable cutting. Clicked my start and end times. Left the output default at TS muxing and clicked start muxing. Literally 1 second later it had a 76MB file made that had two minutes of DTS audio based Titan AE. I put the clip on my htpc and sure enough it worked like a champ. The DTS light came on and as best I can tell I have full sound quality, but I don't know for sure because there are a LOT of settings in both apps I didn't mess with. What are the differences in the output styles in TSMuxor App? I see TS muxing, M2TS muxing, Blu-Ray disk, AVCHD disk, and demux?

I appreciate your help and this will hopefully allow me to throw a few more clips in the upcoming January subwoofer meet!



You're saying DTS, but are you referring to DTS-HD? If you're just going to do DTS, I'd just use the DVD.

DVD-fab will not touch (or shouldn't) the audio. It will only compress the video.

Since you're using DVD-fab, I wouldn't bother doing the full movie, but rather letting it rip a single chapter. It's in the settings somewhere. Just rip the chapter, use no compression, and it should output a xxxxx.M2TS file that is that chapter. Open that file in TsMuxer. Trim as you did before.

As for the different Muxing options in TSMuxer. None have any effect on quality of the stream, they just modify the container depending on what you're going to do with the files afterward.

If you're going to be playing these trimmed clips on something like a Popcorn Hour, Dune, ect, then you'll want to just choose M2TS muxing.

If you're going to try and burn it to a blu-ray you'll have to author the disc somehow. TSMuxer can do an incredibly generic disc. After you have all of your clips trimmed. Reopen TSMuxer and add each of the clip to the disc. Choose Blu-ray disc muxing and it will generate a Bluray compliant disc to burn that will play the clips in the order you set them up in TSMuxer. No menu or anything like that and the disc might crash at the end of the last clip. But it'll work."



I believe I followed the advice he provided, and ended up with a output folder that has Certificate and BDMV folders in it. How do I then burn this to a bluray disk? Both IMGBurn and DVD Fab and CyberPower 10 Suite don't seem to recognize this output folder as a image I can burn?

I'm still green on this and I appreciate the help! Ultimately I can just use my HomeTheater PC to playback, but thought it would be cooler to just through a disk on without any room for error, or glitches that home theater PCs are capable of doing.

Using ImgBurn, select "write file/folders to disc," drag the BDMV folder to the large input box (the cursor will say "+ copy"), click on the graphic to burn, allow it to create a new "Certificates" folder, and keep your fingers crossed.

Sometimes, it helps to pull the certificate folder out to the root level...
you might want to try this on a BD-RE first and test and see if it works before making coasters
post #1452 of 1479
alright I realized I'm not as far as I thought. If I add all the different clips to the TSMuxor and try to kick off the process I get an output folder like I thought, but I only have one movie in the stream folder and not all 20 clips. It's like the previous ones are getting overwritten by the newest ones. I also tried to do them one at a time to a folder and each time I tried to output to that new folder the previous clip was over-written. What am I doing wrong here with TSMuxor? I should be able to see all the clips in the stream folder right?

Is there a BR case label and a disk label for this and for version 2?

There are two versions? I should check to see which one I am seeding. I downloaded it around June of '11.

Anyone notice that this one seems to have the audio too hot? For example, I get ridiculous amounts of distortion playing the clip with Nicholas Cage and the plane crash. It's like it's recorded at +10db, thus meaning I have 10db of clipping at all volumes. The track sounds the same at -10db as it does at -40db. Using my HTPC and VLC player, Toslink interface.

BTW, I am still seeding this one, but will stop soon since I am on a metered internet plan now.

If your audio reproduction is via Toslink you are not playing the original track as in the clip. These clips are lossless audio, so your computer is downconverting the audio to either DTS or dolby. The distortion/difference on the audio is coming from somewhere on how your systems downconvert the audio. The original lossless audio has no problems or any kind of distortion/clipping.

Check either the VLC properties or your soundcard properties to see if you can have some type of adjustment for downconverted audio.
post #1459 of 1479
Never thought of the issue revolving around down converting within my computer. I'll have to do some investigating and see what I can find out.

Or you could read a little bit and see that isn't going to happen. Disc shouldn't be sold.

Ok thanks condescending forum guy.
post #1463 of 1479
Just a heads up. I have been using a copy of the disk that was burned by a local AVS brother. Today a client got his new Oppo 103 and it couldn't read the disk I only had a couple of minutes before I had to run. I've been playing it on the 83 without issue, I get my 103 tomorrow and will test some more, maybe even read the manual.

Big - What's the verdict? Did it work?

Some DVD/BR players have issues with certain brands of blank media. Early BR players choked on TDK medai, for example. I've played four different brands of BR media on my Oppo -83 with no issues. Maybe Oppo changed their mechanism? Do let us know what you find.

I don't find the link
post #1467 of 1479
See post #8 on this page : http://www.avsforum.com/t/1283375/home-theater-demo-disc-version-2-0

Note that the link for this version is dead and even if it was live, there wouldn't be any seeders after all this time.
The 1st link is for version 2 ,by the same author.

post #1468 of 1479
The second link doesn't work. The first link is an .exe ?!?!?!?
post #1469 of 1479
Yea, I had it reversed. Oviously the 1st link is for ver 2. It's a program called GoForFiles, whick would load the torrent. However, it appears to be dead.

If you have a Netload account, I can give you another source to download from, whioch would be much faster than a torrent.
Otherwise, you'll have to spend some time searching the forum in the above link

Edit: I found the torrent on my pc, however there are no seeders.
Thus, you'd be better off checking out SuperLeos's demo disc. You can find the link in his sig, in post #1458, on this page.

Have not checked this torrent, or V2 for the longest time, nevertheless here is V2... The TXT extension needs to be removed (renamed).
