I may be talking to myself in here, but here goes with the next installment. I tried to make a dvd-video from my Blu ray copy of Winter's Bone a couple of days ago. After my problems last time, I decided to use BD Rebuilder
I'm still running into audio/video sync problems in the conversion. This movie also uses DTS HD MA audio, and going to AC3 192kbps simply doesn't work well. Has to be an error in Aften, since both BD Rebuilder and AVStoDVD use it to convert the audio.
The sync was worse this time and VideoRedo can only handle one second of sync error, so I demuxed and fixed the problem in AviDeumx. Had to slow down the audio 1.3 seconds. Output as mpeg2 (no video re-encoding) and reauthored to dvd, so I have a good copy now. Just a lot of fussing to get the sync correct.
Tried the same movie...this time in AVStoDVD and got the same results. Has anyone tried to convert DTS HD MA audio in AVStoDVD using ffmpeg instead of Aften?
As a side note, this movie has a weird opening scene when reencoded to mpeg2. The original shows no problems, but both copies had a very strange effect in the first minute or so, like the scene was shot through wavy glass. As soon as the opening credits ended, the movie snapped into focus and remained so the rest of the way. Very odd.
