  • @maxr Do you have the version from oct 2014 for 10.8 with the force to 444 function ? I have to used 10.8 for backward compatibility i.e. FCP7. And I think the resize function worked at that time.

  • Igooooooorrr stop playing go with your teacher, he's not chinese, he's been dead for over a decade.
    Look in the "H", what's not rotten?

    The older hybrid copy we have it's from christmas of 2014 - (don't use safari for DL)

    There's something not working properly with the 444 downscale in hybrid. I've been noticing this for some time now; but after many tests - I was trying a lanczos, slight denoise+dither+grain approach - I've convinced myself there's no point for that extra step with FHD material; so I didn't want to annoy Selur (he's a nice dude)... 4K material is quite a different story.
    You can talk to Selur, probably it's not that hard to fix... or maybe he's got a freezer with older versions.

    I'm sorry that I cannot be of any more help, when I need to use Karl's script I use automator, where I've inserted the terminal's command line within an applescript and saved it as an application then shortcut 4 convenience; unfortunately I fail to manage more than 1 file at the time, I really no nuthin'. When the ffmpeg cannot parse datastream appears I use code below in similar fashion /// BTW the latest of Karl's scripts (added "-c:d copy") seemed more versatile as it allows the TC too be copied but slower

    ffmpeg -i INPUT -map_metadata -1 -vcodec copy -acodec copy OUTPUT

    @zcream let me give you a free piece of advice if you ever hire a butler, better not be a twisted grumpy hunchback from estonia and more importantly, if you get to hire him, make sure he washes his hands often enough.
    Igor what the fuck is this sticky thing all over the ext hard drive!!!!

  • Any version of Hybrid available for Sierra or Yosemite ? I really like the option of subtitles and film grain in one single app before exporting. I think ffmpeg has the option too..


    ffmpeg grain? it could be, some years ago Selur mentioned something about mencoder and ffmpeg having a grain filter but I have never used it other than Hybrid's
