  1. I need to modify my BD authoring workflow somewhat because my intermediates are linear EXR. Therefore, I am trying to build an ffmpeg script that can encode a bluray compatible video without triggering the DVDA recompress setting. So far, no luck. In the past, the following worked fine:

    Code:
    x264 --bitrate 27500 --preset veryslow --tune film --bluray-compat --vbv-maxrate 28000 --vbv-bufsize 27500 --level 4.1 --keyint 60 --open-gop --slices 4 --colorprim "bt709" --transfer "bt709" --colormatrix "bt709" --sar 1:1 --pass 1 -o out.264 in.avs
    x264 --bitrate 27500 --preset veryslow --tune film --bluray-compat --vbv-maxrate 28000 --vbv-bufsize 27500 --level 4.1 --keyint 60 --open-gop --slices 4 --colorprim "bt709" --transfer "bt709" --colormatrix "bt709" --sar 1:1 --pass 2 -o out.264 in.avs
    where I processed a lossless 4:2:2 1080p29.97 video to 4:2:0 1280x720p59.94 using Avisynth. So, now I am trying to do all that using ffmpeg. This is what I have so far:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -y -t 10 -framerate 30000/1001 -apply_trc iec61966_2_1 -i "e:\in_%06d.exr" -pix_fmt yuv420p -vf scale=w=1280:h=720:out_color_matrix=bt709,setsar=sar=1/1 -sws_flags lanczos+accurate_rnd -sws_dither auto -r 60000/1001 -c:v libx264 -tune film -x264opts bitrate=27500:bluray-compat:vbv-maxrate=28000:vbv-bufsize=27500:level=4.1:keyint=60:open-gop:slices=4:colorprim=bt709:transfer=bt709:colormatrix=bt709:pass=1 -threads 8 -an -f rawvideo NUL
    ffmpeg -t 10 -framerate 30000/1001 -apply_trc iec61966_2_1 -i "e:\in_%06d.exr" -pix_fmt yuv420p -vf scale=w=1280:h=720:out_color_matrix=bt709,setsar=sar=1/1 -sws_flags lanczos+accurate_rnd -sws_dither auto -r 60000/1001 -c:v libx264 -preset veryslow -tune film -x264opts bitrate=27500:bluray-compat:vbv-maxrate=28000:vbv-bufsize=27500:level=4.1:keyint=60:open-gop:slices=4:colorprim=bt709:transfer=bt709:colormatrix=bt709:pass=2 -threads 8 -an e:\out.264
    As you can see there is a bunch of stuff in there related to the linear to Rec.709 conversion as well as 1080p to 720p and framerate, then I throw in all the x264 bluray compatible settings. It seems to work fine, DVDA reads the file but then wants to recompress.

    Here is what Mediainfo says:

  2. One problem I see from MediaInfo:
    Variable framerate flag (not allowed on Blu-ray). Try to add "force-cfr" to x264opts.

  3. Great catch! That was it! Thanks so much for your eagle eye!
