LD to MKV

48 Replies, 10860 Views

I have finally joined the ranks of video capturers with a Blackmagic Intensity Pro card! I just captured my first LD to HuffyYUV 4:2:2 in 2 parts. Now my question is, whats the best way to losslessly combine the 2 parts into 1, then get ready for x264 encoding (de-interlacing, cropping, etc)?

EDIT:

Thanks a bunch to everyone for the help! Here's the final details for future use:

- LD Video -> Blackmagic Intensity Pro -> VirtualDub 2
- Set Video>Compression to HuffyUV, and Video>Set Custom Format... to UYVY (4:2:2 color) and Capture
- Download TIVTC plugin for AVS

Create AVS script:

Code:
LoadPlugin("TIVTC.dll")#put the plugin in the same directory as your script

side1=
\AviSource("U:\side1.avi")
\.TFM()
\.TDecimate()
\.ConvertToYV12() #if you are going to 4:2:0 color
\.Trim(17, 81430)
\.Crop(10,3,-24,-3)

side2=
\AviSource("U:\side2.avi")
\.TFM()
\.TDecimate()
\.ConvertToYV12() #if you are going to 4:2:0 color
\.Trim(73, 34696)
\.Crop(10,3,-24,-3)

side1 ++ side2

- Render audio via VirtualDub (open same AVS script, then File, Save Audio...)
- Render video with SimpleX264
- Remux!

@bronan
Import the video into NLE of choice and there you can join the file and export a master file for further working, if you need to use an external application.

Cool, any good/free solutions I should look into?
You can do it all in AviSynth
As you are going to IVTC, crop, etc, anyway, I'd write an AviSynth script in which both sides are processed and spliced together, and then feed it to x264.

EDIT: Ha! Zoidberg was quicker on the draw. Smile

Oh cool, had no idea I could combine clips in AviSynth. Alright I will start researching! Do you have any useful scripts I should look at for guidance on the IVTC and such?

I always do this:
Code:
DoubleWeave()
Pulldown(0,3)
Source: http://avisynth.nl/index.php/Pulldown

But you sometimes need to cut away individual frames to set the "rhythm" straight before you run this.

I'd IVTC each single side (and also crop, as sometimes black borders are different between sides, even if by few pixels), and then finally join them.
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

EDIT:  Bronan, you might need to do a manual IVTC,as Tom suggested, but the automated approaches usually work fairly well.  Try TIVTC first.

Your script should look something like this:

Code:
LoadPlugin("TIVTC.dll")#put the plugin in the same directory as your script

side1=
\AviSource("side1.avi")
\.TFM()
\.TDecimate()
\.Crop()#add the appropriate values

side2=
\AviSource("side2.avi")
\.TFM()
\.TDecimate()
\.Crop()#add the appropriate values

side1 ++ side2

Thanks Chewie! Unfortunately I get an error: "TFM: YV12 and YUY2 data only!"

Does this mean I need to do a color conversion first?
