StaxRip v2.36.0

💡 The last two releases had to be rushed to prevent users creating broken Dolby Vision encodes. Because of that many related issues are fixed and improved with this release. When it comes to Dolby Vision and Cropping I highly recommend reading this updated guide, especially when you think the crop is not correct:
Encoding Dolby Vision with StaxRip using x265, NVEncC, QSVEncC, VCEEncC
Please check out the Changelog as always to know what has changed and start with fresh settings to avoid side effects.

UI: "Import VUI metadata" doesn't override Dolby Vision profile depending on selected mode (#1212)
UI: Extend Assistant check for VBV settings when using Dolby Vision to custom parameters (#1213)
UI: Fix Crop bug that caused unnecessary and sometimes wrong cropping
UI: Set "Output Mod" default value to 2 (inspired by the poll on Discord)
UI: Improve handling/finding with metadata files

StaxRip v2.35.0

⚠️ Important:
This one is an important update for everyone, who also uses sources with Dolby Vision metadata and wants to transfer them to the encode/target properly while cropping the image. As it turned out, a lot of guides and information are wrong, misleading or at least incomplete from a general point of view. It took me hours to get and verify all the information about that topic and develop a way to ensure all different types of sources are treated the right way, so the encode will be as accurate as possible.

Basically almost everything should be straight forward and handled by StaxRip, definitely a lot easier, faster and less error prone than before. Please make sure to run a new instance with new settings and jobs to avoid side effects like lost or changed settings and handling.

So what has changed regarding the Dolby Vision handling:
Currently only x265 is supported!
Currently using the Custom section to add Dolby Vision parameters by hand will interfere with the procedures, so please avoid that.
For the actual metadata to be included, you have to use Import VUI metadata - nothing new, but I wanted to mention it.
The VBV settings have to be manually set as required by the encoder. In a future version the values might get set by StaxRip, but currently you have to do it by hand. If not, the Assistant will help you.
The Auto Crop on opening feature, that was activated by enabling the Crop filter on a template, moved to the Options. Now you can decide between No auto cropping, Dolby Vision sources only, which uses the metadata to set the right crop, and On all sources which uses the normal Auto Crop feature in case no Dolby Vision metadata was found.
eac3to will be forced to extract also the Enhancement Layer and use it to extract the metadata depending your choice on Extract HDR metadata.
When dealing with Dolby Vision metadata, Resize and Cutting filters are currently not allowed. In case of a problem, the Assistant will guide you. You can avoid that by putting the code into a different filter as the Assistant only checks for the filter names. Be aware that you will probably mess up with the result!
When dealing with Dolby Vision metadata, the Crop feature is limited. In case of a problem, the Assistant will guide you. You can avoid that by putting the code into a different filter as the Assistant only checks for the Crop filter. Be aware that you will probably mess up with the result!
Special thanks to @Morku for testing some scenarios and finding some bugs. 🙏

🤔 There is no way I have mentioned everything I wanted to. 😅

Fix: CLI (command line interface) was broke due to a feature introduced by version
Fix: DivX certification profile with no restriction combined with 1 pass quality based encoding was broke
x264 --threads auto added as default, because of this StaxRip will offer but not force to reset all video codec related settings.
Update: DivX
Update: AviSynth 2.5.7
Update: VirtualDub 1.6.17 (2007-01-07)
Fix: Autodetection of NTSC film content was broke because of a change in DGIndex's d2v file format.

Automatic internet updates are now fully supported. When StaxRip starts it checks the internet if there is a new StaxRip version available. If a new version is available it downloads and installs it automatically after a user confirmation.
New setup wizard with Vista like command buttons so the user don't have to bother with a next button and got the tooltip right on the button.
New DGIndex feature to use relative file paths is now supported in that all AviSynth scripts are written to the source directory
External Applications get the message that informs about wrong versions back enabled after downloading
Anamorphic encoding: In case no auto resize is performed the resize value get adjusted to the image size actually used
Crop dialog: Opening the crop dialog now disables the crop reminder assistant tip so the tip is skipped automatically and doesn't have to be clicked away with 'next' manually
AAC uses now the new encoder by Nero
x264 and AAC are now the default codecs
x264: The 'Quality' value (--crf) of the profile 'Constant Quality' was changed from 20 to 22
Jobs: Starting encoding has now to be started with the job dialog. Pressing 'Next' creates a job and opens the job dialog so the only thing left to do is pressing 'Start' in the job dialog
Preview Dialog: New menu item and command added to the preview dialog to delete all selections at once
Third party applications: Automatic detection of required applications located within MeGUI's tools directory
Update: DGIndex/DGDecode was updated to version 1.4.8
Update: x264 616
Update: DivX 6.4
Update: XviD 1.1.2
Commands: The 'Add Job' command couln't be used from the men (2006-05-01)
The x264 dialog has been reorganized.
The x264 switch '--bime' was added as 'B-Frames/Bidirectional ME'.
The x264 switch '--no-fast-pskip' was added as 'Analysis/No Fast P Skip'.
The x264 switch '--direct' was added as 'B-Frames/Direct Mode'.
Updated x264 to revision 516 using sharktooth's build.
DivX was updated to version 6.2.2.
Opening a audio source file that has a filename containing the language will cause StaxRip to pick up the language from the filename so it's no longer necessary to set the language manually.
Opening a source file while another source file is already open will show a dialog to select a template from. Previously just a warn message appeared asking to load a template first.
The options dialog has several new options allowing to disable certain assistant instructions. For now the following reminders can be disabled: crop, filters, cut and comp. check.
When StaxRip shows a dialog for the very first time it will automatically show the help of the dialog. It's now possible to disable this behavior in the settings.
For HDTV the image size is ofter larger then the monitor screen size, in that case StaxRip shows the crop dialog maximized fitting exactly the monintor size.
The command 'Perform/Clear Jobs' was added allowing to clear the job list.
The command 'Correct/ImageSize' was added. It changes the image size to the cropped image size in case no resize filter is used. This command is always performed after the crop dialog closes.
The command 'Correct/Crop Mod' was added. It crops until crop width and height is a multiple of 4 or in case no resize filter is used 16. This command is always performed after the crop dialog closes.
The command 'Perform/Add Job' was added allowing to add a job to the job list.
The command 'Perform/Run Jobs' was added allowing to start encoding the jobs.
The quality percent value that is used in conjunction with the compressibility check defaults now to 60% for XviD and DivX and 50% for x264. StaxRip will offer to reset all video encoder settings.
StaxRip no longer uses a default project but allows to specify which template to load at startup.
The main window supports now tooltips showed with a right-click or by using the 'What's this?' menu item (command: 'Help/What's This?'). StaxRip will offer to reset the main menu to make this menu item show up.
The automatic correction of crop values uses now two sides.
The crop dialog shows now mod values and labels in the status bar.
The menu editor uses now a menu instead of a drop down to select a command. The advantage of a menu is a hierarchical presentation and tooltip context help.
Added project option 'Advanced/Dangerous/Save Cropping' to disable forcing save mod values for cropping.
Updated the guides regarding multipass vs quality mode.
The size menu in the main window has new default values allowing to set the size/bitrate based on a quality of 40/50/60/70/80% which can be useful for codecs with multipass better tuned then quality mode. StaxRip will offer to reset this setting.
The audio settings for the PlayStation Portable were improved. StaxRip will offer to reset audio related settings.
The profile menus support now a tree structure based on slash signs ('/') in the profile name. StaxRip forces to reset audio and video encoder profiles to have new profile names.
The open files dialog supports now Drag & Drop to add files.
Open the target directory after the encoding was removed because windows explorer might crash for unknown reasons.
The dialog for opening source files has various new options for batch processing.
