  1. Been a while. Ahh.. the memories.

    Anyway, Download the latest Vdub2. Ripped my blu-ray in MakeMKV. VD2 cuts and saves it to MKV fine but not sure which video "compression" setting to pick. I don't want compression(PQ loss) so In "select video compression" I selected "similar to source". I tried the (Uncompressed RGB/YCbCr) which yields a 500GB file from the 35GB original. Largarith which says no conversion but yielded a 10GB file. x264 8bit also said no conversion but also yielded a large file.
    Don't give in to DVD2ONE, that leads to the dark side.

  2. Select x264 codec. If file is too large increase CRF value. You can increase compression by choosing a slower preset at the expense of encoding time. Sometimes Blu-Ray (lossless) audio can also be quite large, you may want to compress that as well.

  3. Hello,
    "similar to source", "no conversion" comments only reflect the colorspace and pixel format difference of uncompressed frames. This says nothing about the compression.

  4. what about direct stream copy ?

    what types of manipulations are you doing ? what does "edit a mkv" mean ?

    What I mean is to cut out particular scenes and keep everything else as is.

    10 or 8 bit x264, the 8 bit says no conversion required.

    So what you mean is MKV is compression and what I really meant to say is re-encode. Meaning I don't want to re-encode.

    I don't think "direct stream copy" works with AVC video in Virtualdub2 does it?
    Perhaps give Avidemux a try leave video and audio on Copy

  10. Update:
    The program it self says you will get artifacts because you are not cutting on K frames. I let it make the video and there was artifacts in the cut scene.

    All non re-encoding cutting tools require you to cut on keyframes - it's the only way to ensure absolutely no re-encoding

    If you need frame accuracy not on a keyframe, you need a "smart renderer" which re-encodes only the frames in the affected GOP . So this minimizes the quality loss. eg. videoredo, solveigmm video splitter, tmpgenc smart renderer

    You need to use the following after your done cutting.

    File -> Export -> Stream Copy
