    Dear all,

    I am posting to this forum for the first time, but I am not a newbie.
    I was always using VirtualDub to make avi files (xvid+mp3), but it has come time to move to HD - so now
    I want to make mkv (h264+aac) and cannot find a proper software.

    My Sony CX700 camera produces MTS files with AAC video (h264) with VERY HUGE bitrate - 15 megabits/sec for 50i, 30 megabits/sec - for 50p.

    I want to find a software where I can do this:
    a) load mts
    b) set deinterlace filter and convert my 50i into 50 progressive frames.
    c) resize resolution to 1280*720. Why? because 1920*1080 is not necessary - the fact resolution of sony cx700 is 1280*900, it upscales it to HD. everybody know it, and it is written on forums everywhere, especially on ixbt.com. So, I want to turn it back to 1280.
    d) set parameters of compression - 5000Mb/sec for video, 192K for audio. IT IS ENOUGH. No need to have 15 Mb/sec like in the source.
    d) save this to MKV or to MP4. Why these formats? Because my LG TV (47") can play a lot of formats including MKV and MP4, but cannot play MTS.
    e) I need to do all this in batch mode as well. I have a lot of those mts files, I'd like to set up conversion parameters, add a list of files, press the button "convert them all", go to work, when come back at evening - to have all these encoded.

    Question: can anyone point me to a NORMAL software that can do this?
    I mean, deinterlace, resize, compress h264 with set by me bitrate, and save to MKV/MP4 ?

    I don't care if it will be free or commercial - I will pay $100-$200. Not a problem.

    Regards,
    Ihor.

    P.S. As to VitrualDub. I know how to load mts with avisynth, set deinterlace and resize filter in Virtualdub, set codec to h264 and save to AVI with h264 inside. But my TV "stucks" on such avi files: it doesn't play them well - breaks after several seconds, although on computer they are played fine. Converting them to MKV also doesn't help.

    thank you very much for the hint about Ripbot264. Works nice - just what is needed.

    The only thing that I did not see in Ripbot is how to make the audio settings so that it uses AAC with more than 64 kbps per channel (for stereo it shows 128 kbps max).

    I see that there is the source code of audio encoder - RipBot\Tools\fhgaacenc\src, so that being a programmer, I can change it and add "extra" bitrate in fhgaacenc.cpp like this:

    else if(!_tcscmp(argv[i],_T("--cbr"))) {
    params->mode = kModeCBR;
    if(++i<argc) {
    params->modeQuality = _tstoi(argv[i]);
    if(params->modeQuality < 8) params->modeQuality = 8;
    else if(params->modeQuality > 576) params->modeQuality = 576;
    params->modeQuality += 64; // ibobak: let us add more quality
    }
    }


    but I don't like it.

    It would be nice if the author of Ripbot did "audio profiles" or something like this and allowed me to choose it.
