Now all that is missing is the ability to select the desired audio track(s) to be converted when the source video (in the various formats Avi, mp4, mkv etc.) contains more than one different audio track!
I have videos in the archive that have 2 audio tracks, the first in Japanese, and the second in my language… and if I run the conversion with the program, it automatically converts the first track (in order of importance in the video file), which is Japanese precisely, while I would like to be able to select the second track (the one in my source language).
Ps. it would also be nice to have an improved handling of the audio downmix when there are multichannel audio tracks higher than the classic 2.0 “Stereo” (e.g. 5.1 tracks also recorded by various camcorders of the past), as is done for example in the Handbrake program!
This method takes the front-left and front-back tracks and mixes it into the left channel along with the center channel, and does the same with the right-side elements. This does eliminate the LFE channel from the mix, but in general it is recommended to keep the subwoofer element out of stereo downmixes because it can create an overall bass-centric mix that sounds muddy on stereo equipment.
If you have any suggestions on improving the quality of the stereo transcode option, we’d be happy to take a look.
Have we found the cause for the alteration of color and the appearance of irregular black spots?
If the cause has been found, shouldn’t a bug-fix version, such as Proteus 3.1, be released first before a new model (1x denoising model) is created?
If the cause has not been found, there is a concern that similar bugs will occur even if a new model is released, which will only result in unnecessary costs.
I am not very technical in the audio area, but for me, copy as much as possible from the audio management and audio encoding from the program “Handbrake”… the management of multichannel audio tracks is done to perfection by the program (also totally based on FFMpeg)
@q91632@JakSpoon It’s true that we cannot directly add libx264/x265’s CRF encoding modes, but we are exploring options for adding NVENC’s p1-p7 CQP bitrate control options, which would be closer in performance to CRF mode.
Intel offers a similar adaptive bitrate control in their QuickSync encoders, so we will also be looking into options for moving away from fixed bitrates on that platform.
