  1. This is the first time I have ever had this happen.

    I am simply cropping black sides off of a 4:3 aspect ratio Blu-Ray like this.

    Code:
    LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files (x86)\MeGui\tools\dgavcindex\DGAVCDecode.dll")
    AVCSource("C:\Users\???\Desktop\Encoding\Episode 1\00001.dga")
    LimitedSharpenFaster(ss_x=1.00, ss_y=1.00, strength=12, overshoot=0, undershoot=0, soft=0, edgemode=0)
    crop( 242, 0, -242, 0)
    For some reason, on playback, its playing back as stretched 1920x1080 instead of 1436x1080. Mediainfo shows the file as 1436x1080, but any media player I try, plays it back as stretched to 1920x1800. Even when I mux it to MKV, MKVMerge seems to think its 1920x1080. I would have to override the settings when muxing to get it resize it. Only mediainfo seems to know its 1436x1080 resolution for whatever reason.

    Whats up with this? Is there a problem with the script? I crop black bars from the top and bottom all the time for 2:40 aspect ratio movies and it always comes out fine without any resizing. The preview of the script in AVSPmod and or MeGui shows it perfectly fine.

  2. I tried file indexing the output .mp4 video with .ffindex and it shows up perfectly as it should in avisynth previewers. Why is it only MediaInfo and Avisynth can see this final video in its correct aspect ratio?

  3. when encoding set --sar 1:1

    Make sure your players are not configured "stretch to fit" or something like that

    SAR is set to 1:1 in my settings, I'll give that a try. WHat is setting SAR 1:1 going to change? Should I always have it set to that?
    That stretch media player setting is the first thing I checked and messed with.

    My other 4:3 encodes I have done in the past came out fine. It's only this one that has the issue.

  5. I tried 4 different media players and they all display it wrong.

  6. You have an encoding or playback problem

    If you're using some GUI, maybe your commands are being overriden ?

    Try playing this attached file. If it does not playback correctly, you have a player configuration issue. If it plays back correctly, you have an encoding issue

    Code:
    colorbarshd(1920,1080)
    ConvertToYV12()
    Trim(0,240)
    AssumeFPS(24000,1001)
    crop( 242, 0, -242, 0)
    Image Attached Files

  7. That video you gave me plays back fine.

    Of all the 4:3 BD's I have encoded, this is the first to give me that issue.

    I noticed in my video file that doesn't play back fine, if I select save a screenshot, the screenshot is fine. It's fairly weird that it is doing this.

  8. Your encoding commands are probably not being passed, or they are being overriden if you are using some GUI. Check your log files

    Setting sar to 1:1 means "square pixel"

    That sort of makes no sense to me since its perfectly fine everywhere but playback. mediainfo, avisynth, media player screenshots, windows properties, they all have the correct information in them or show it correctly.

    Anyways this is the log I could find.

  10. Your log say sar=480:359. It should be 1:1.
    Quote Quote  
  11. I wonder why its choosing that SAR. I checked the logs of several of my past encodes and they are all SAR 1:1, even the 1920x1080 encodes. Should I just always use manual override SAR 1:1 no matter what? I have it set to auto in GUI settings and always have so why it went crazy for this one, I have no idea.
    Quote Quote  
  12. I exited the software, restarted the computer, and it is choosing SAR 1/1 on auto now like it apparently always has. I still have no idea why it was choosing 480:359 last night, but it looks like if I run it again, things should come out fine. I will let you know.
    Quote Quote  
  13. Yup the exiting and restarting fixed the issue. I now know I can manually set SAR to 1:1 if need be as well.

    Thanks!
