Ripping Dolby Atmos into MKV

Post by Zaphod » Sat Jun 16, 2018 4:40 pm

Does Make MKV pull across the Dolby Atmos soundtrack when a UHD disk is ripped.

If so how would you recognise the Dolby atmosphere track in Handbrake for pulling into a MP4 file ?

No.

There's a big thread talking about it right below yours. The short version is Atmos is closed source and nobody knows how to reverse engineer it for ripping.

To clear things up. The OP is referring to the Dolby "Atmos" track which is the audio track. Not Dolby "Vision" which is the HDR layer (video related), and which is what the MKV community has yet to resolve.

Yes, you should be able to pack the Atmos track into the MKV container. I have done it and so have other people.

However, I do NOT use Handbreak. Best way to know for sure? Try it and test it. It will not explode if you try and fail I promise.

Ah, got mixed up.

Yeah, Atmos rips fine. It'll even say Atmos in the right box of the correct track. "TrueHD Atmos"
