i have problems with the playback of AVCHD and HDMV on my PS3. I tried it with an USB-dongle and on a DVD-R. I can playback the most files in the folder STREAM, but i'm thinking that this isn't the way it should work?!?!?? Can anyone please help me?
post #3272 of 3881
The AVCHD version on standard dvd works perfectly fine in the PS3 player. It is a BR filesystem just not BR media.
post #3273 of 3881
I drop the downloaded AVCHD file to the USB-Stick. The VCHD is in the root. But the PS3 dosen't indicate the files as an full AVCHD....

Why not just follow the instructions and burn it to DVD and move on?

Just wanted to say thank you very much to the authors of this awesome FREE tool. AVS rocks!
post #3277 of 3881
is this to be used with any additional software? or can this all be done by eye?
post #3278 of 3881
You can set brightness, contrast and sharpness by eye and there are also some patterns to check that TV is deinterlacing and handling motion properly. If your TV has an RGB only mode (where it can display a blue screen) you can also set color and tint.

You can do the basic settings by eye, which is how I use it. Other patterns require gear: setting gamma and the color temperatures.

Read the AVS 709 users manual about using the flashing color bar pattern with the blue filter mode. Page 5 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8968806/Patterns-Manual.pdf

I also have troublens understanding. I have read the manual three times, and it is clear what to do when having a blue filter.

But it does not state clearly what to do when using the BLUE MODE on my Samsung.Do I need to put blue mode on, and change my color control so that the 'blue' box and the 'grey box' (grey box now looking more blueish??) match ?

Yes. The blue mode = using a blue filter.


The gray bar at the left has a flashing blue box and the blue bar has a
flashing gray box. Look through a blue filter (or use blue mode) at these two bars. As you
raise and lower the color control you will see the gray and blue change
relative to each other. You want to set the color control so gray and
blue match.
Ideally when this happens you would see almost no
flashing on the center of the boxes while looking through the blue
color filter. Realistically you might always be able to see a little bit of
flashing, and if that's the case then just set the color control so that
gray and blue come as close as possible to matching.
post #3284 of 3881
As you adjust your color from too low to too high you will see that the flashing inner boxes are brighter and darker than their surrounding. Find the color setting where the two flashing boxes on the ends look the same. Any other setting will have one be light while the opposite is darker.

Do the same adjustment with the inner flashing boxes for tint.

Ciao,

I download the BDiso (first link) and play the file in xbmc. I only get to watch 2hr 30mins of 25% - 50% - 75% colour saturated screens?

I no have menus, no other files just a 2.5hr continuous video of changing percentage colour saturation?

For sure xbmc play BD as it play one right now no problem?

Any advice?

Anyone know where the authors are? I'd like to distribute some of these calibration discs to my customers (with full credits in tact of course) but I can't do it for free. I tried PM'ing a week ago, but no response...

I haven't been following things here much, and I doubt if hwjohn has looked in years.

As you commented, the only major stated stipulation is to retain the credits. I think the plan of noting that the same information is available here for free and providing an option for a disk is reasonable. We have had similar requests, and personally I don't see a conflict in charging for time and materials. My main reason for posting this to the thread is that if anyone cares to do something similar and has a Blu-ray burner, a few people have requested copies of the BDMV burned to BD writable media in the thread.

The Blu-ray version is based around menus to select patterns. I've never used xbmc, but a google search has me questioning if the program can play Blu-ray menus.

What software is used to author the disk? I am creating my own disk with multiavc, but I am not quiet happy with the menu system,

It's Adobe Encore, which is part of Adobe Premiere.

interesting when goggling this problem your name seams to pop everywhere so here goes

I have created a disk in Adobe encore CS5, but have a few problems
1: when building a disk I select blu-ray mode and build to an ISO - If I burn this ISO to a DVD disk this work fine on my Phillips BDP9500 - but not on a PS3, I asume its only the fewest players that will play Blu-Ray files of a DVD disk - How do you get a usable AVSHD file out of Adobe Encore - or what 3rd party software do you use to create the AVCHD iso?
Solved by using AVCHD Pather 1.06 - now plays fine on PS3


2: how do I get the menues to be 24fsp? - Got that sorted, need to set it up as a NTSC format, (i live in England so PAL is what I normal use) when set to NTSC you can set a fps for the entire project on 23.976.

Thank You in advance.

I've downloaded the ~600MB EXE, haven't burned to disk yet. My question is this:

In the OP I see mention of the Patterns Manual. I put the italics tags in there, so it will be sure to appear on your system as mine. On my computer certain terms at AVS Forums are automatically linked to certain commercial products, evidently a way for the forums to support themselves. In this case, Patterns Manual (I'm not putting in tags here) is linked to a crochet manual at Amazon. However, my impression from the OP is that it's supposed to be linked to a download of the manual. Is this not the case? Is there a way to suppress/turn off the linking of phrases to commercial enterprises in these forums? They are not helping me.

Edit: I notice after posting that my instance of "Patterns Manual" isn't linked to anything. This puzzles me. Surely the OP's intention was not to link to a crochet manual at Amazon. I'm getting this from the "link" in the OP: Camel Crochet 2 Designs & Patterns Manual [Kindle Edition] when I click on Patterns Manual.

You may want to give firefox a try.. That seems to only appear when using IE. You can also install ad block on FF and the forum runs much faster without all the ads to loading.

Well that isn't working for me. What did work was quoting the OP, pasting it into a text file and searching on "Patterns Manual." The first few instances were not actual links, but further into the post there was one that was a link to the PDF. I pasted that into my URL and voila, I had it. I've just printed it out. This was a lot harder than it should have been.

I still have the question in my previous post: Is there something I can do to stop my browser from generating advertising links in key word/phrases in AVS Forums posts?

Aha, I guess I don't have adblock installed on this computer. I already am running Firefox!

Edit: No, I do have adblock plus installed. Maybe I don't have the right set of filters. I just checked, I'm running EasyList.

Can someone recommend an adblock plus filter set that will effectively stop the advertising links from showing up in AVS Forums posts?

There is a Help forum for this sort of question. It's near the bottom of the list.

Your account preferences has a setting for automatic links. Turn it off.

Otherwise: NoScript for Firefox allows you to tailor which sites run what sort of javascript. It makes life better for me.

The original intent was that the large text below downloads were the downloadable files. There isn't a find and replace in the editor, so when the project was still changing it would have been a hassle to have more than one link. Anyway, maybe it's easier to find now.

I was hoping to have a go at it?

My file is around 15 meg, without assets, and honestly I don't want to upload it.

My AVCHD menus are rather simple. The buttons (+) only contains the selection item. The simple menu with nothing more than a video background and individual buttons was necessary for the current AVCHD workaround.

The current AVCHD output is rather complex, and it's a pain to create. Basically I create a project in Encore, then I change ProjectMedia.acx in the Encore project to use H.264 menus, and then I use MultiAVCHD to modify the files to look like AVCHD. I follow the notes below from top to bottom to create the AVCHD, but honestly my notes may be difficult to understand. I also had some problems with Encore wanting to change the menus back to Mpeg2 when I tried to make modifications, so I used BDedit a lot to check the output files from Encore. I don't know if CS6 allows AVC (m4v) menus, but there were only a few functional changes between CS4 and CS5.


ENCORE AVC MENU MODIFICATION FOR AVCHD IN CS5:
Note: Menus must use video background so that they are in-mux
Note: Menu background will cause menu to reload at end of video, so the video must be long enough that the reload doesn't happen very often. Currently 2.5 minutes is used for menu videos, which requires about 2 hours for first build.
Note: Encore had issues with an old build. The old build worked after encoding backgrounds with an updated x264 version, shortening clips from 5 min to 2.5 min, and using a separate video for each background in Encore.

- Create and build project in Encore (this build will be slow as the menu background is transcoded to m2v in Encore)
- Save and close Encore after build
- Delete the output of the first build. It will not be used. The build is necessary for menu background transcode.
- Save project and close Encore
- Transcode m2v files to m4v using Adobe Premiere (H.264, profile - main, level – 4.0, vbr 2pass, custom, target Mbps – 1.5, max Mbps – 15, maximum render quality)
- Edit ProjectMedia.acx
- Switch m2v to m4v
- Change size for bytes in m4v (use size from windows explorer, not size on disk)
- Change “MPEG-2” to “H.264”
- Open project again in Encore and create build (this output will use in-mux AVC menus)
- May want to check that project uses AVC in-mux menus
- Use multiAVCHD re-author and output AVCHD Strict
- Close multiAVCHD and delete non-AVCHD folders (AVCHDTN, CERTIFICATE, AUXDATA, BDJO, JAR, META, BACKUP/BDJO)
- Create .iso containing BDMV folder using ImgBurn and UDF 2.5 formatting
