I've stumbled across a problem with the Mainconcept Blu-ray renders in the MAGIX AVC/AAC MP4 templates.
Using the Magix AVC/AAC Blu-ray 1920x1080-50i, 25 Mbps video stream template with 1 pass VBR and the only change being reducing the max bitrate to 35,000,000 (DVDA recompresses if you use 40,000,000 as reported elsewhere) I get noticeable edge shadow when objects move against a clear background. I'm using the Mainconcept AVC Encode mode CPU processing only. This is visible when I play the avc file in MPC-HC player and advance frame by frame, or drag the file into a VMS 50p timeline and advance frame by frame. The shadow, similar to a drop shadow, moves alternatively from behind the object to in front of it. I took the avc file through to a m2ts file in a Blu-ray iso image using DVDA and the problem still existed.
Rendering with the similar old Mainconcept template (enabled via preferences) does not give the problem nor does rendering with Sony AVC. So it is perculiar to the new render template.
Two images attached to try and show the problem. The cyan is moving across covering the red and should have a clean edge. It does in the original Mainconcept but doesn't in the Magix Mainconcept .
Santa on his sleigh is chasing the title off the screen. Unfortunately the image may not be large enough to clearly show the edging.
I've also noticed it with occasional shots from my camera. For example a red banner moving against a grey sky. The banner had edging like the red colour had bled.
I'd be grateful if someone could check my findings with a simple project .
