Additional Presets

To add a new preset to EyeFrame Converter either save a set of intermediate and proxy settings to a txt file and place it in “C:\Users\Public\Documents\EyeFrame Data” or open an existing preset in EFC > Conversion settings > Pen button, paste the new settings in and save as .txt under a new name in the same folder. Restart EFC to select the new setting.

Camera Files with multiple Audio Tracks(st599)

Many professional cameras record multiple audio tracks, for example when a camera has 2 independent XLR inputs it would be usual to store these as 2 independent audio tracks within the file.

FFmbc, by default, only encodes the first video and first audio track that it finds within a file. This can be altered using map_audio_channel.

The formatting is:

-map_audio_channel <input file index>:<input track index>:<input channel index>:<output file index>:<output track index>:<output channel index>

(Indexes start counting from zero)

For the situation where you have 1 input file and 1 output file, both file indexes will be 0.

In the input file you have 1 video track (index 0) and 2 audio tracks (indexes 1 and 2), each with 1 channel (index 0).

So to map both tracks in the input to 2 tracks in the output you need to add the following without quotation marks to your ffmbc command line after the -i <input-filename> bit (you can edit them in Eyeframe Converter):

“-map_audio_channel 0:1:0:0:1:0 -map_audio_channel 0:2:0:0:2:0”

or to map both tracks to a dual mono track add:

“-map_audio_channel 0:1:0:0:1:0 -map_audio_channel 0:2:0:0:1:1”
