When you start XMedia Recode, it is displayed in Japanese.
Add and select files
XMedia Recode allows you to add and encode multiple sources, but you can't combine files.
Add the file to be converted by dragging it to the upper pane of the home.
Of the toolbar Open disc Not protected from Read DVD onlyYou can
Information such as playback time, video codec, audio codec, etc. is displayed for the added file, and you can double-click the file. Enter key You can check the detailed information of the media by pressing.
Select the file to encode with the same settings.
File format specification
ConfigurationOn the tab 形式-Image-Audio track-字幕-Crop / preview-Chapter editing-List There is.
形式 Set the converted file format and extension on the tab.
ImageIn the tab, you can make detailed settings at the time of encoding, and by default 形式 The recommended value of the file format selected on the tab is set.
In the video tab ソ ー ス Information and output Information is displayed, and if there is a video from a different angle such as a DVD, you can select the video to output, and if you do not want to output the video during encoding, you can delete it with the "✕" icon on the right.
The menu on the left sidebar varies depending on the codec used, General Items other than those do not need to be changed.
Of the video GeneralThe items displayed in are different depending on the codec used.
"Copy" and "Convert" can be selected, and if you want to change the filter, codec, bit rate, frame rate, etc., use conversion. The copy is not encoded and is output without deterioration.
The codecs that can be stored in the selected file format are displayed.
The frame rate represents the number of frames displayed per second, and the unit is fps.
Rate control mode
The choice of rate control mode (bit rate mode) depends on the codec used.
Bit rate / quality / quantization
Set according to the rate control mode options.
Rate control mode
The choice of rate control mode (bit rate mode) differs depending on the codec used.
Since the bit rate is literally fixed, waste occurs when there is little data to be transferred, and there is a possibility of shortage when there is a lot of data.
Variable bit rate (VBR)
There is no waste because the bit rate changes according to the amount of information to be transferred.Since the bit rate is changed according to the amount of information within the range by specifying the minimum bit rate and the maximum bit rate, or the target bit rate and the maximum bit rate, the quality is as long as the file size is the same as the fixed bit rate. Is improved.
Average Bit Rate (ABR)
A variable bit rate based on the bit rate (target bit rate) specified as a type of variable bit rate (VBR).The "average bit rate" encodes while predicting the output result when converting, while the "2 pass average bit rate" encodes after first analyzing the data, improving quality and compression ratio. It can be expected, but it will take more time as the number of processes increases.
Quantization (Constant Quantizer)
It deletes (compresses) certain information from all frames of the video at a specified rate, and specifies the quality and deterioration degree with a numerical value from 1 to 100.
Quality (Constant Quality)
Similar to quantization, certain information is deleted from the frame, but since it changes according to the amount of information in the frame, the image quality tends to be the same as that of quantization, and the file size tends to be smaller.
If the output file size is fixed, the menu bar Options から Bit rate calculator Select, specify the file size to output, and click "OK" to confirm, and the maximum bit rate that fits in the file size will be applied.
Audio track settings
On the Audio Track tab, you can make detailed settings such as sample rate and bit rate, and the items will differ depending on the selected codec.
Also on the audio track tab ソ ー ス と output Information is displayed, but if it is audio, import another audio file output Multiplex audio is possible by adding it to the field.
The setting items differ depending on the codec used.
Select "Convert" if you want to encode the source, or "Copy" if you do not want to encode.
A codec can be selected when encoding (converting) audio.
The sample rate is like the frame rate of a video, and the smoothness of the audio changes. CD is 44.1KHz, DVD standard is 48KHz, and the source is basically maintained.
If the source is stereophonic, Stereo, 2.1ch, 4.0ch, 5.0ch, 5.1ch, etc. can be selected according to the source.
Rate control mode
Can be set when selecting a lossy compression codec such as AAC or MP3.
Set according to the rate control mode options.
It has emerged as a standard that achieves higher sound quality and higher compression than MP3, but the difference can generally be felt at low bit rates of 160 kbps or less, and there is no big difference at 192 kbps or higher.
It is a codec developed by Dolby and has a good reputation for sound quality used in movies.
Since it is lossless compression, it can be converted losslessly, but it is not versatile and the players that can play it are limited.
PCM signed 16-bit
Since it is the same sound source as a CD and is uncompressed, the sound quality is theoretically superior to other codecs, but it is not higher than the source.
Store the source subtitles in a file for video subtitles Copy And write directly to the video Render There is.
If the source contains multiple subtitles ス ト リ ー ム A list is displayed in the item of, and in order to import all Select MKV or VOB as the file formatdo it Copy Must be selected.
Store subtitles in a fileIf you do modeで Copy Select to capture subtitles ソ ー ス から output Add to.
Write subtitles directly to the videoIf mode で Render Select ソ ー ス Of ス ト リ ー ム Only one subtitle to write from output Add to.
Crop / preview
Crop / previewIn addition to specifying the resolution, cropping, deinterlacing, and encoding range, you can also set filters such as grayscale and inversion on the tab.
By default all filters are disabled Deinterlacing-Crop-Padding-resolution Is displayed by default, so if you want to use a forta Eye Click the icon to enable it.
Add filterClick to use various filters other than the displayed filters.
When digitizing an interlaced source that transmits scanning lines divided into odd and even numbers, such as analog broadcasting and VHS video, it has the effect of complementing the alternately missing scanning lines and suppressing flicker (striped pattern).
libav Deinterlace-Yadif-Kernel Deint-mcDeInterlace I have implemented the filter of, but the result differs depending on the source.
Crop is a process of trimming the image, and when you want to erase the black bands on the left, right, top and bottom, specify the part you want to cut with a numerical value.
Click Auto Crop to cut only the black belt.
Padding is a filter that adds a margin (band) to the video, and since the black band is added within the video size of the source, the size of the source is reduced by the amount that the padding is set.
In the resolution, the video size can be changed, and each item of scaling, dithering, aspect ratio and enlargement is set.
The drop-down list next to width / height can be set to be a multiple of the specified number in the mod, and if you want to resize it freely, use the default value of 2.
Typical with scaling settings bilinearIn addition to (Bicubic) and Bicubic, there are a total of 10 scaling modes. Bilinear is a method of scaling using the average value of multiple pixels, and Bicubic is the same method as Bilinear but slightly better than Bilinear. It is said that.
It is a method of combining colors to produce neutral colors, and the default setting is 自動 Although it is Buyer dither -Error diffusion method Etc. can be selected, and the general method is the error diffusion method.
The aspect ratio is the ratio of width to height, and if you change it to darkness, the image will be compressed vertically or stretched horizontally, so the default is original .
When the aspect ratio is changed arbitrarily The error from the original is displayed as the aspect error.
Black bands are added to the top, bottom, left, and right in the process to correct the aspect error when the aspect ratio is changed. Letter box It is common to use.
Pan scan Cuts out a part from the video and corrects it to the specified aspect ratio,MediumIs to convert the asbect ratio by incorporating the effect of letterbox and pan-scan, and it has a black frame of half of the letterbox and cuts half of the pan-scan.
When cutting out a video Start time と ending time To specify.
For videos with chapter settings, you can also specify chapters.
Edit chapters set in DVD-Video, etc., or add chapters to videos without chapters.
If you want to delete the current chapter Chapter removal, If you want to delete all chapters Remove all chapters.
You can edit the ID3 tags used in MP3s.
There are some file formats such as MKV that can be entered in the tag information even for videos but are not displayed depending on the environment.
The list tab shows a list of files to encode.
When you have finished setting the encoding, click "Add to List" to add it to the encoding execution list.
After setting the encoding and "adding" the target file to the list, execute the encoding.
The output destination of the file is at the bottom Destination Specified by.
After setting the save destination, the menu icon at the top Encoding Click to start the process.
Since encoding is a task that puts a heavy load on the personal computer, the time required for encoding depends on the specifications of the personal computer, and it takes time to encode even when performing filter processing such as deinterlacing and scaling.
