Quick review of various SUPER © options
Details about the H264 Profile, Crop / Pad, Other Opts, or the DirectShow Decode switch..
This small panel provides access to most of the video and audio options in SUPER ©
DirectShow Decode To Add Watermark, Join identical files or Apply some video effects using DirectShow
Hi Quality To Use the video High Quality mode of the internal FFmpeg, MEncoder, ffmpeg2theora encoders
Top Quality Applies an algorithm to optimize the selected VideoBitrate, renders a VBR video stream
Stretch It Stretches the video image over the entire frame canvas, covers the upper and lower black bars
48K Audio Sets the internal audio sampling reference from 44100 Hz to 48000 Hz
H264 Profile Sets the Profile, Level and Reference Frames of the H.264/AVC Video codec
Crop / Pad For Cropping and Padding the video frames
Other Opts Provides other Encoding Options
When the RightClick Menu Show Useful Hints option is checked, hover the mouse over any enabled
box or field on the GUI to read more details.
You can have access to this option through the H264 Profile tiny switch, if it is enabled (not grayed).
This option sets the (Profile/Level/Ref. Frames) of the rendered H.264/AVC video codec.
When the AVI, FLV, MKV, MOV, MP4 containers are selected, the "Tweak" checkbox is already checked
and grayed allowing by default the modification of all settings as per the required values.
If the rendered H264 shows a bad quality with the Baseline Profile, select Main or High to improve quality.
However, with the 3GP/3G2, TS/M2TS, Android, iPad/iPhone, BlackBerry, Xbox, Zune, PS3 and PSP
containers and the H.264/AVC video codec selected, an internal preset value for (Profile/Level/Ref. Frames)
is already defined to insure better compatibility with the target hardware device. Modifying the preset values
is not recommended as it may lead to un-usable output files. However, even in this case, "advanced" users
may still check the "Tweak" checkbox and modify any (Profile/Level/Ref. Frames) value.
To open the "Crop & Pad Options" panel, click on the Crop / Pad
This button is disabled/grayed Whenever MEncoder is selected or in some specific
conditions when the video stream is either missing or do not allow Crop/Pad.
The Top, Bottom, Left and Right values can be separately set for Crop or Pad.
When the RightClick Menu Show Useful Hints
option is checked, hover the mouse
over the "Crop & Pad Options" panel to read more details.
To open the "Other Encode Options" panel, click on the Other Opts tiny swith.
Some features may be disabled/grayed depending on the selected Output Container, the
selected Video Codec or Audio Codec. For instance, the "Adjust The Encode Volume" is
grayed when the audio stream is disabled.
When the RightClick Menu Show Useful Hints option is checked, hover the mouse
over the "Other Encode Options" panel to read more details.
Open this panel by clicking on the DirectShow Decode (D) Tiny switch
Several Video DirectShow-based options can be set :
Adding Watermark on each video frame and setting the font, color or position of the Waterwark
Joining several video format-identical files into one encoded file
Forcing the rendered video file into Slow or Fast motion
Applying some video effects to the rendered file like rotations, color effects, fading..
|| Using "DirectShow Decode" With SUPER ©
- When the DirectShow Decode switch is unchecked, disabled, SUPER © encodes any input files/formats irrelevant
of their video/audio codecs by using its own encoding and decoding engine based on the Libavcodec library compiled
within FFmpeg, MEncoder etc..
In this DirectShow Decode OFF mode, SUPER © will not use or rely on any other external codec installed in your PC.
- When the DirectShow Decode switch is checked, enabled, SUPER © relies exclusively on your PC's DirectShow engine
to decode the input file before re-encoding it. The tiny 'D' button is used to open the 'Video DirectShow Options' window.
For many years before, the DirectShow Decode process was a real pain in the neck. A considerable number of files (.dll or .ax)
has to be correctly installed and registered on a PC in order to decode/play multimedia files with DirectShow.
Various coders/authors have made lot of efforts and created hundreds of DirectShow filters, a user has to get each and every filter
according to his needs to decode/play MP4, MOV, OGG, AVI, MKV and so on..
The result was a terrible mess causing a serious disorder in the DirectShow process, a user ends up having 5 filters from 5 various
authors for the same format (i.e MP4 or MKV) entering all together in conflict and giving more headache than anything else.
Then ffdshow came up to provide a sort of solution that was good for a certain time although it wasn't covering a wide range of file
formats or codecs..
Lately, a brilliant coder from Hamburg/Germany named Hendrik Leppkes developed a set of DirectShow Filters that are based on the
libavformat and libavcodec libraries from the ffmpeg project. They allow to play virtually any format in a DirectShow player like the
native Windows Media Player. A user would be able to play virtually any format without installing any additional player.
Hendrik Leppkes DirectShow filters are called LAV Filters. The LAV Filters are the state of the art in terms
of DirectShow processing,
they have the widest format/codecs coverage while remaining extremely light (a total of 12 files compared to 160 with ffdshow !)
With those 12 unique files, one can decode/play directly on his Windows Media Player those various multimedia formats like:
3GP, AVI, DV, GXF, MKV, MP4, MOV, MXF, OGG, RM(VB), TS, M2TS, AAC, AC3, AMR, MP2, MP3, TTA you name it..
If we only consider the MKV container for this example, SUPER © proposes 33 different Video Codecs and 21 different Audio Codecs
making a total of at least 30x20 = 600 different MKV file type !!
Unlike other DirectShow filters where the user was able for instance to play a matroska file with the H.264 codec 'MKV[H.264]' but unable
to decode/play a matroska format with a different codec like HEVC or VP8 'MKV[HEVC]' 'MKV[VP8]', LAV Filers are here to decode/play
a huge number of Video and Audio Codecs for the same format.
We have tested all the following containers with Hendrik Leppkes LAV Filters:
3GP, AVI, DV, GXF, MKV, MP4, MOV, MXF, OGG, RM(VB), TS, M2TS, AAC, AC3, AMR, MP2, MP3, TTA we created around 2100 different files.
The LAV Filters with their 12 unique files were able to decode/play about 98% of our files, while other various DirectShow engines under
test couldn't even decode/play 30% of our files although some of these engines has about 160 various installed files.
We strongly recommend to un-install all other useless DirectShow filters from your PC, they could only be a source of conflict.
Keep only the state of the art LAV Filters and with only their 12 installed files decode/play virtually every existing multimedia file by
directly using your Microsoft native Windows Media Player and encode in DirectShow mode any multimedia file type using SUPER ©
with its DirectShow Decode switch checked. It can't and will never be easier !
Hendrik Leppkes LAV Filters are "THE" solution for DirectShow processing, therefore, as of 2014, eRightSoft decided to implement
the LAV Filters in SUPER © v2014.Build.60 and rely on them as the best available DirectShow engine.
SUPER © has always been relying on the best selected set of DirectShow filters, but now we are confident that our decision in shifting
towards the LAV Filters is the best technical solution, many other GUI converters/encoders will imitate us by adopting our choice.
LAV Filters have 3 major blocks: The 'LAV Splitter', 'LAV Video Decoder' and 'LAV Audio Decoder'
The input file goes directly to the 'LAV Splitter' which detects the format and the used Video and Audio Codecs.
The 'LAV Splitter' then outputs and directs the Video Stream to the 'LAV Video Decoder' and the Audio Stream to the 'LAV Audio Decoder'.
The 'LAV Video Decoder' supports the widest variety of Video Codecs while the 'LAV Audio Decoder' supports a huge number of Audio Codecs.
Using these 3 LAV major blocks allows to play virtually any format with any codecs directly on the native Windows Media Player without installing
or adding any additional softwares or players.
Each one of the 3 major blocks can be separately configured with SUPER © using the tiny 'C' button (DirectShow LAV Filters Configuration)
- Configuring the LAV Filters is as simple as clicking on the tiny 'C' button. You may select the Video and Audio formats/codecs to be supported
and define several additional features..
