Good to hear!

By the way (if you guys haven't already thought to do this) I'm thinking it could be pretty important to grab the subtitle track from the 3D file. Unless there's maybe also an accompanying file that helps integrate the subtitles with the 3D? When I watched Kong: Skull Island, we had the full subtitles playing for the duration of the film, as my mom is hard-of-hearing, and there were many times where the subtitles didn't quite line up, depth-wise, with the 3D and it was rather straining on the eyes. I'm going to tinker around with that and see what the results are, but if any of you already have some experience in that department, let me know.
When doing the final process with MKVToolNix, what settings do you guys use under Video Properties: Stereocopy ? and any other settings within the program before you start multiplexing?

Thanks

Nothing needs to be done after you have added the 3D MKV and the 2D MKV files.... and have selected only the needed files.... the 3d video file and the Atmos audio file and deselected the other files...

Thanks I will give it try again tonight. During my first try the screen was blank, but the Atmos audio was playing.

Well, check the file name extension of the finished merge you created. When using MKVtoolnix to create a 3d file merge, you can end up with the extension ".mkv3d" or something to that effect... Your media player may not recognize that as a valid playable video file. Simply change the extension back to ".mkv" and try to play it again. And depending on your media player, you may have to manually put it into 3d playback mode too....

I'm doing Wonder Woman 3D Atmos this weekend: remind me the process in MKVToolNix? :)

I've done some simple muxing of commentary tracks, but it's been several months.

Do you have to save out the Atmos audio track to an MKA file and then mux that into the 3D MVC file? Or can you do it in one step starting with the 2D and 3D MKV files?


Thanks.

Thank you very much for the hints and tips. I will finally give go on Saturday to mix the 3D and atmos together.

Pull the 3D version and 2D versions using MakeMKV, selecting the tracks you need. Open MKVToolNix, drag both versions you ripped in. Select the 3D Video Track and the 2D atmos track and run it.

Here it is visually. I didn't appreciate until this effort that it was a one-step in MKVToolNix. I thought I had to two step it with an intermediate export of the Atmos track.
  1. Drag the first MKV into MKVToolNix'x Multiplexer window
  2. Drag the second MKV and choose "Add as new source file..."
  3. De-select the 2D video, the duplicate subtitles and descriptive audio, add or keep any of the other audio tracks
  4. Set your destination file and click Start Multiplexing
  5. Let it run. There will be Warnings about UID conflicts.
  6. As a bonus step, bring the mux'ed MKV into the header editor and fix the UIDs
  7. And save out the tweaked MKV
  8. Add to your server / library system of choice and enjoy!

Thank you. I have been trying to mux it in BD ISO, but without much success, as the atmos audio does not seem to work. I may try to reverse engineer the mkv file, you described above to m2ts, and see if that works.

For a 3D MKV file to run, would a Windows 10 laptop with HDMI port work, if run using latest Kodi? I think my laptops have HDMI 1.4. Is there anything else to make sure of? Thanks again.

Stock Kodi can't do MVC 3D in MKV files. I ended up using MPC-HC with MADVR /LAV Filters to get MKV,MVC 3D, and Atmos working. There is a Kodi version called DSPLayer as well, I havent tried that yet.

This sounds intriguing, best of all it seems to be free (maybe?) Is there a tutorial somewhere for a newbie to try out? Many thanks.

WW worked perfect for the 3D + ATMOS track

Zidoo X8




Zidoo is a great ready made solution, and I would get it also, I think. I just want to see if I can run some in house solution first. Already, I diligently tried the ISO/ tsMuxer route over the weekend, but went nowhere. If anyone's interested, here is the link to my problem going the m2ts/ISO route.

from what I can see, tsmuxer isn't recognizing the ATMOS track in my WW 3D + ATMOS MKV file. Latest binary is from January 2014 maybe it can't handle ATMOS tracks?

It does actually recognize atmos, if you go through this route when converting from mkv to m2ts. But the Blu-ray discs already came with m2ts files, so, in theory, it shouldn't be a problem. But it is :)

Funny thing is, the tsMuxer shows atmos is present when you view the Blu-ray ISO playlist. Trouble is happening when you Mux the two playlists to a new ISO.

hi, I just tried that method and was able to get it to work. I first used gMKVextract to extract the THD file from the original 3D /ATMOS mkv. I then processed the ATMOS track with eacto -> THD + AC3, file went from 4.4GB -> 5.0 GB I then renamed it *.ac3

TSMuxer


  • added the original 3D MKV I made with make mkv + mkvtoolnix (used to merge 2D BD ATMOS + 3D MVC MKV)

  • added the *.ac3 file

export to BD ISO.

I can play it back perfect on my Dune 4K solo + ATMOS, audio sync is dead on. Dune 4K Solo cannot playe 3D MVC MKV files so this is good to see the 3D ISO working.

I will burn it to a BD and see if it plays on a traditional player like my Panasonic UB900.

Nice work Zombie! Please update us if you can create a BD, I would love a hard copy that would also play in my player vs using a computer.

This is the guide I started with, https://www.avforums.com/threads/guide-playing-frame-packed-3d-with-madvr.2030649/

But it didnt work completely, I had to play with a couple options. The main thing was that when referencing using the LAV decoders, I installed them and configured them, but they didn't work externally I think. I ended up copying them into the MPC-HC directory. These are my notes I wrote in a notepad so if I had reinstall haha

Instal MPC-HC
Install LAV filters with MVC extra pack
Check config of LAV second tab for MVC H264
Overwrite LAV filters in MPC_HC with installed ones
Install MAD VR
Set output in MPC-HC to MAD VR
Open a movie, double click MAD VR on tray icon
Under renderer turn on 3d and click use 3d option
Close MPC-HC
Open Nvidia control panel, turn on stereo 3d and do the small setup (3dtv play not needed)
Start MPC-HC , open 3d movie, go to fullscreen

For bitstreaming, open internal filters in options, audio decoder, set bitstreams

I can't really thank zombie10k and grendelrt enough for your hard work and suggestions. Yes zombie, I am very interested to see if your Blu-ray Disc came out okay.

Now I am following zombie's path to creating BD ISO/m2ts (via the creating an mkv file first).

So, zombie, with regards to creating the initial ripped MKV from the original Blu-ray discs, I am assuming you used the makemkv software. I tried going directly from the disc's m2ts files/ playlists to add to mkvtoolnix. Doing so, I guess took the wrong step as, mkvtoolnix didn't seem interested in adding the MVC 3D file. The AVC H264 was getting added without a problem.

Grendelrt, much thanks for revealing your notepad scratches. I will save it in my notepad :)

hi, correct I am using the makemkv application and followed all guides in this thread to end up with a 3D MKV + ATMOS track. Then I did the additional steps I listed above.

I burned the 3D BD ISO to a 50GB blank disk and it plays perfect in my Panasonic UB900 -> JVC Projector 3D + ATMOS to my Denon 7200.

Killer! This is a great option, I can keep a hard copy with my original disc and try it out on my oppo, thanks for figuring this out zombie. What BDR media brand do you use? And what burning software?

no problem, I'm glad it worked. I'm using these discs, about $2 a piece. never burned a bad one so they are good media.

I'm using Imageburn and just burning the ISO to BD, no other software changes. The UB900 saw the disc and just started playing the movie in 3D. :)
