Ad-Detective

A couple of things after using version 6 for 1 day. I don't like that the program disappears into a small window while Ad scanning. It looks the same as if it is saving your final file. If you have to do it that way it is fine - what I would like in that scenario is a different sound indicating it is done Ad scanning than the same sound it is using right now for saving a file. If you could give us that option to have a different sound for the Ad scan completed portion I could live with the minimized program window while scanning. Thanks.

If you go to Ad-detective parameters and click on the common tab, you can revert to the old style "interactive" mode. When you run in interactive mode, I suggest turning off the deinterlacer on the Tools>Options>Playback devices as this slows down interactive Ad-Detective. This has been fixed for the next beta, Build 807.

I like the idea of a different sound for Ad-detective completion and have added it to our "to do" list. Thanks.

I just upgraded to V6 and noticed this as well - thank you for the tips and hints

I would LOVE to speed up ad-detective as much as possible. Other than this deinterlacer setting, what else can be done to give this feature a speed boost ( i don't run anything else on my machine while this is executing) - in V5 i played around with minimizing the scan area, but that didn't make things go any faster and created more "errors" in the process

Thanks in advance

Are you running 809b beta? For H264 files, V5 and V6 seem to have similar performance. MPEG2 is a bit slower which we don't know why other than the fact that the mpeg2 video playback now shares a common code base.

I just upgraded to the NON-beta this morning. and played around with the ad-detective on V6.

so you're saying there isnt a magic "accelerator" butt in for this feature that can boot its performance by XX%?

Not at this time. You'll get the performance if you run in interactive mode as opposed to "save/non-interactive" mode. Did you read this post and set the interactive parameter checkbox? This is the faster of the two modes.
