UHD Blu-ray playback software

Hi guys,I may need to start doing UHD Blu-rays in the coming months, and I'm currently in "exploratory phase." Right now I'm just buying players, upgrading my gear, and a few commercial discs to get started.Unfortunately, I've discovered that PowerDVD 18 is kind of a mess when it comes to UHD BD support, and won't work on an AMD-based PC. (I literally JUST BUILT myself a new Ryzen Threadripper workstation.) I've heard it also has issues with NVidia GPUs, which is what most people use. So it…See More

DoStudio to Scenarist transition experience

Hey everyone,Since it seems this forum is here to stay (and is transitioning away from DSA) I thought it'd be a good place to start a discussion about transitioning off of DoStudio to Scenarist. I recently made the switch, and have finished two discs so far. I can't say it was EASY exactly, but it definitely could've been a lot worse.A few of my experiences:• My menu designers were able to transition to Scenarist format with relative ease. If you ignore most of the Scenarist-supplied scripts,…See More

"Hey Denny! Long time no chat! Actually, I've think I've found the perfect app for subtitle rendering (with my ridiculously needy audience), the command line/open source app AVS2BDNXML. It requires AVISynth, and also a video file matching…"

"Hey Justin,    There should be something out there in regards to BDN XML there were a few people working on all kinds of utilities in this area way back when. I'll see what I can dig up.  What are the exact details you need to…"
