  1. Hi, I have a 3D movie that was ripped using MakeMKV to a 3D MVC MKV file. I want to re-encode the file to just a standard 2D MKV... essentially just keeping the left eye information and discarding the right eye. I realize I can just take the left eye video from the original source disc... but I want to learn how to extract the left eye from a 3D MVC MKV.

    Here's the video info:

    ID                                       : 1
    Format                                   : AVC

    MultiView_Layout                         : Both Eyes laced in one block (left eye first)

    Any suggestions? Maybe using an avisynth script with x264? Thanks.

  2. If the left eye is the base view you could simply open it with a decoder that doesn't support the 2nd view. I.e. ffmpeg, x264cli with ffms or lavf input support or AviSynth ffms2.

  3. I initially tried x264CLI kMod but it wouldn't recognize the input file. But I ended up just using the x264 encoder in Avidemux... worked like a charm.
