Watched two movies in two days. Yesterday was The Girl of the Train which was a good one. Today was Inferno which was complete garbage!

I recently reached Zora’s Domain in Breath of the Wild and it feels like I’m picking up the pace on the main quest. I guess I’ll have to face a Devine Beast soon, but I need to prepare more first. Got some shrines to complete to get more hearts and then search for Zora’s Helm.

Men seriöst, HUR ÄR DET MÖJLIGT att ha en internetbank med så dålig tillförlitlighet som Länsförsäkringar har? Ständiga tekniska fel!

I only use Apple’s Compressor once or twice a year but when I do, and once the initial frustration over its interface has subsided, I really like the utility it provides.

Right now I’ve used it to batch-convert the students’ surround mixes to proper Dolby Digital.

This post is just for my own sake. I’ll probably write this up better once I’ve reached a final conclusion.

The workflow is as follows:

  • MakeMKV to rip the titles from the blu-ray disc.
  • Don Melton’s transcode video with the following options:
    • transcode-video --add-audio all <videofile>
  • Subler to remove unnecessary audio tracks and add external subtitles.

It’s not perfect and it needs some tweaking. Right now I’m contemplating whether to use detect crop or from Melton’s utilities.
