The AVCHD format allows you to play the same type of content that a Blu-Ray and holding high definition (1080p) but on DVD5 or DVD9 media.
Ideal for backing Blu-Ray with smaller size and maintaining high quality.
BDtoAVCHD is created with the idea that is very simple and quick to use and obtain the best possible quality in a DVD5, so unnecessary conversions are avoided whenever possible.
You do not need any codec installed as avisynth, ffdshow or Haali media splitter and records obtained are compatible with almost any Blu-ray player or PS3.
Features of BDtoAVCHD 2.1
- Finds the main .m2ts file for the movie by just selecting the BDMV folder or Blu-Ray root
- Extract all information from the audio tracks, video and subtitles: length, language, format, etc.
- Extract chapter information or allows to add it.
- Select default audio track based on the most appropriate language preferences and criteria for the best quality but can also be set manually.
- Calculates the video bitrate to fill the DVD5 / DVD9 (most of the times gets between 99-100% of total capacity).
- Converts audio (only if necessary): PCM to AC3, DTS-HD MA to DTS Core, DTS to AC3, etc.
- Detect delays in the original audio tracks and transfers them to the final work.
- Re-compress the video using x264 64-bit if your computer supports.
- Do not use external codecs like avisynth or ffdshow or Haali splitter in the process of video conversion.
- Allows you to select a forced subtitle track is selected by default when playing the disc.
- Allows you to program multiple conversions in the queue and execute them one after another automatically.
- Multitasking: you can gradually add new jobs in queue while others are processed.
- Various output sizes: DVD5 / DVD9 / USB 4GB / BD-25 and Custom.
- Ability to create a BD-25 without re-compressing video (BDRemux).
- MKV as alternate output: allows to convert Blu-Ray to MKV recoding the video or without recoding (BDremux).
- 3D ready: from Blu-Ray 3D (MVC) we can get a 3D SBS AVCHD or MKV (side-by-side).
- From this version you must have Java installed (no included) as used by the BDSup2Sub program included in the installation.
Changes in BDtoAVCHD 2.1.3
- Improved: slightly better MVC encoding speed.
- Improved: in MVC encoding for BD9, parameters max_rate and buffer_size 25000 25000 are used (better optical media compatibility).
- Fixed: random MVC encoding fails on SW mode.
- Fixed: artifacts/pixelation MVC encoding on some systems (HW acceleration).
- x264 updated to revision r2409.
It compresses the video to achieve the desired overall size of 4.7 GB with the highest possible quality.
