|I propose a small and brief tutorial, which is more information than anything else, but very interesting. In fact, I'm currently testing two new compatible media players AVC/MVC, thus managing the ISO Blu-ray 3D. These are the 3 Xtreamer Sidewinder and MED1000X3D of Mede8er. Both drives work well with ISO Blu-ray 3D except that they do not support menus (or Lite menus in 3D, but in 2D yes), but that is not the subject of this tutorial. I've tested the 3D MKV playback encoded AVC/MVC with MakeMKV and I wanted to give you a little return on it.
Watching 3D Blu-rays is already not an easy thing, as most 3D player can't recognize these discs. How annoyed it is for a Blu-ray enthusiast! As you know, multimedia players that support the AVC/MVC (the codec used by Blu-ray 3D) have recently emerged as the Sidewinder Xtreamer or Mede8er of MED1000X3D. By testing these two very powerful players on 3D playback, I could make an interesting experience before me and I thank Basthi by the way.
The MakeMKV software can rip Blu-ray 3D directly in AVC/MVC 3D Framepacking (Top & Bottom) 1920 x 2160 pixels + the small band of 45 pixels between the two images placed above/below as you can see on the display. this video is multiplexed 3D MKV container. Here we'll show you how to rip and store the contents of a 3D Blu-ray disc in an MKV in AVC/MVC 3D.
Rip Blu-ray 3D with MakeMKV lossless 3D Full HD
The handling is very simple, no need to soft decryption like AnyDVD HD, MakeMKV does everything alone, and automatically. Simply insert the Blu-ray 3D in your HTPC, launch MakeMKV. You then click on the icon "Blu-ray => HDD" MakeMKV and decrypt Blu-ray 3D to blast protection.
Then a small window will appear with several tracks to rip or not the Blu-ray 3D. Just select the ones you want to keep. Will be removed preferably all the trailers and clips, which are the smallest tracks (up to 5 GB), keeping only the main movie. Drop in the main movie, you can see that you can select an MVC box. By checking this box, MakeMKV will rip Blu-ray 3D MVC automatically AVC Top & Bottom (or framepacking) without loss. The video is not re-encoded and retains all the qualities offered by the Blu-ray 3D.
You can also select the audio tracks you want to keep (DTS or DTS-HD, Dolby Digital 5.1 or TrueHD) and subtitle tracks. For my part, so I keep the main movie + VF VO track or DTS-HD or TrueHD, + the forced subtitles or French. This allows for not too heavy MKV. Even with this shedding MKV, it will still be quite heavy with more than 30 GB as a reminder was still two video streams.
When you have selected the tracks of your choice, simply click on the 3D MKV MakeMKV and will be completed in about 1/2 hour to see a little more depending on the power of your PC.
Regarding the reading of this 3D MKV MVC. The Mede8er MED1000X3D and Sidewinder 3, which use the same Realtek 1186 can read it perfectly, with support for subtitles in 3D. In fact, the video is played in 2D 1080p, and if you want to see in 3D, simply opt for the 3D Top & Bottom (Top/Bottom or) format, the player will switch to sequential display 3D 1080p. and I guarantee you that this is true 1080p 3D displays, excellent quality, such as the Blu-ray 3D home. This manipulation works even read Samba, or via USB without jerking. All 3D TV I tested worked perfectly and display video in 2D or 3D 1080p user choice.
The MediaInfo analysis of 3D Full HD 3D MKV file obtained gives it below. It is therefore a good MKV to AVC/MVC profile Stereo High@4.1 with two 1080p framepacking (top & Bottom) images and an average rate of 36.7 mb./S stereoscopic broadcast that remains content (Avatar can climb to more than 60 Mb/s).
MakeMKV BETA has several major restrictions.
- Program is time-limited -- it will stop functioning after 60 days. You can always download the latest version from makemkv.com that will reset the expiration date.
- HD-DVD support is limited - some discs may fail to open and not all audio and subtitle tracks will be preserved.
- Blu-ray and DVD discs are fully supported.
- Computer administrator privileges are required on Windows to run the beta version. This is limitation of Windows SCSI application programming interface. Eventually MakeMKV will not require administrator privileges to run.
- Aside from restrictions above, the program is fully functional. Produced MKV files are not degraded in any way and have no time or usage restrictions.
Alternative method to Rip Blu-ray 3D to MKV Full HD 3D
Do you need something besides .mkv files? Pavtube ByteCopy, (Read reason to choose it) is an alternative of MakeMKV. It is a open source Blu-ray & DVD baukuping/coping/ripping application to help you copy Blu-ray to mkv with chapters and subtitles as well as rip 3D Blu-ray to SBS MKV for watching on 3D players.
ByteCopy make a good quality for ripping my BD/DVD discs for watching. It is somewhat easier to use, and it can re-encode which is nice even though it wasn’t the deciding factor. MakeMKV crashed on a two DVDs which ByteCopy managed to copy. In colusion, ByteCopy is a better choice you may need. The mac version is ByteCopy for Mac.
