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 2.1.2
- New: Ability to shrink 3D Blu-Ray to BD-25 or BD9 keeping 2D+3D ISO MVC format (movie only). The obtained BD9 discs are playable on most 3D Blu-Ray players.
* BDtoAVCHD 2.1
- New: Output mode 2D+3D .ISO (BD Remux) if input is a 3D Blu-Ray. Can also determine if there is enough space on a BD-25 without recompress the video.
- New: 3D button on main window for selecting the 3D output mode for the current conversion (2D/SBS/TAB/2D+3D .ISO). Appears only if the input is a 3D Blu-Ray.
- Improved: Scan Bitrates function scans .ssif files in 3D Blu-Ray.
- Improved: MVC/AVC eye assignation (left-right) is shown also in source proprieties (main window).
- Improved: removed Haali Matroska Muxer of the installation package as it is not needed anymore. In some conversions that required to create a temporary MKV, now an alternate/more direct method is used.
- x264 updated to revision r2389.
- Mkvmerge updated to version 6.7.0
- Added tsMuxeR version 2.6.12
It compresses the video to achieve the desired overall size of 4.7 GB with the highest possible quality.
