Hi Kwag ,
There's two things I think are missing in calcumatic:
1-support for different audio bitrate in case of multiple audio tracks.
We can only specify how many audio tracks we have but those have to be the same bitrate.
With KDVD and Dual Layer discs we'll soon be able to fit 4-6 movies on a single disc.
That would make at least 4 sound tracks and we know that they rarely come in the same bitrate.
Maybe an audio size in KB would do the trick since we often start by extracting/compressing the audio in headac3he or besweet.
2-support for neuron2's DGDecode.dll from DGMPGDec 1.0.12a .
Of course we can always open projects created with DGMPGDec with FitCD or VDubMod and get the accurate lenght of the movie there, but it would greatly improove the tool usage
That is whenever you have time to dedicate to Calcumatic as you have been really busy
Cheers buddy

Never
It would be about 4MB in size, and would run about half as slow
This is my (secret) toy

Grab it
http://www.kvcd.net/downloads/CalcuMatic.exe
Please report bugs on the appropiate thread

Edit: Please re-download
I forgot to turn off form resizing. I uploaded an update with resize off.
It's just an aesthetic bug.

Great
So far it works really good
Just one remark: is it DGDecode.dll compliant already?
For some reason I can not load projects done with it.
Anyway it's not a big deal if it's not.
On the other hand, I've noticed that even if I choose a bitrate without setting the amount of audio streams, it doesn't use it in the calculations...
I wonder if that would be "the way to go" .
For a complete "lost" kinda guy like me (always in the moon ) that can easily become an issue.
Think you can make it more "idiot proof"?
Like having an audio bitrate named "None" on all the combo-boxes.
If the guy set's it to any bitrate the amount of audio streams jumps to 1 automatically.
Well, just a thought
Great work anyway
Cheers

Hmmm,
Ok, Karl, I think the parser engine on calcumatic needs some fine tuning.
When I select an ifo souce it will give me very weird values such as negative minutes and seconds or just a few seconds for big 100 and 120 minutes movies.
BTW that already happened in the 1.1.01.
Haven't checked avi souces as I dont have them .
I'll try to build and mpg file to see the results.
Many thanks, though.
Cheers

Hi Rui,

Don't rely on the IFO feature.
It's still buggy!
Only use it to open .d2v, .avi or .mpg files.

Version 1.1.11 is up
If anyone clicks on audio selection of Audio2, Audio3, or Audio4, it bumps the stream from 0 to 1. Got your point Rui
