    Mona You never sent me the address to your FTP site. But its ok. I did get a backup made using soft decode and HW encode as I had previously stated so no need to try and fix the bug. Thanks anyways.

    When making a movie only backup to 50 GB BD (thus no compression) there is no green screen.
    Yes, please send this copy to us, we will use it as the source to test the Green Screen problem. Thanks.

    However, using HW decode and HW encode still results in green screen at the same precise location.

    At least, using soft decode with hw encode is much faster than soft decode and encode, and CPU only gets to about 63 C. (i9-9700KF ... AIO water cooling ... not overclocked ... GTX 1660 XC).


    Could you please provide the latest log file? Thanks again.

    The developer said that they have done some update in the latest version of DVDFab and suggest that you use the latest version to try again, you may just copy 2 chapters to see the test result.

    1. Please set it to use soft decode + hw encode.
    2. Please also try hw decode + hw encode.

    Please post the result for both tests along with the latest DVDFab13.log and fabcheck_internal.log, thank you. ​

    Mona Any update on this? As noted above, I did a work-around by disabling GPU decoding/encoding, but it does not fix the underlying problem in DVDFab. Could you please provide an update as to the progress in fixing this long known issue? Thank you.

    [QUOTE=october262;n432721]

    from what I've been able to find, disabling hardware acceleration should fix the green screen issue.
    or try updating or rolling back your graphics card drivers.[/QUOTE

    Rolling back driver still did not fix the issue. However, using software only decode/encode eliminated the green screen issue. The downside is it took around 4 hours to do what normally only takes 20 minutes with hardware acceleration. Since the CPU was running close to full load for most of those 4 hours, it did get a bit warm at about 80C. I used my older i7-3770K based PC to do this since I didn't want my main PC's (i9-9900KF platform) CPU resources tired up for that long and since I don't use the older PC much anyway.

    In over a decade of using DVDFab, this is the first time I have ever run into this issue. Apparently other users have experienced this with other titles as well, so if it is in fact a bug in DVDFab, then it likely wont get fixed since it hasn't up to now and since there seems to be limited user comments on this issue, they likely wont take the time to address this just for a handful of users. Too bad.

    Thank you october262 for the reminder that this option exists.

    green screens are not just isolated to this video, home videos get green screens like that too... the way I have found to get rid of them in 12 and 13 was to set no GPU acceleration Just as october262 states or to set the decode to software and use hardware encode... Using hardware decode and software encode resulted in a spontaneous reboot... both hardware encode and decode was green screens if not a reboot...in the testing that I have done... biggest difference in the GPU hardware here is I ditched my GTX1050OC and I am now using an AMD RX6600, Both GPUs have the green screen issue.. but the green screens issue is not in any way new, I saw it way back in DVDFab 6... with it being less or more of an issue depending on which update was installed,

    Hello Mona,

    Any progress on this? I know it has been only a few days and don't want to seem impatient, but didn't want it falling through the cracks with no solution as it did when other uses reported a similar issue with two other movies from the same Star Wars collection ("Star Wars Complete Saga" , includes Episodes I thru 6, released September 16, 2011).

    I did notice that there are multiple camera angels (I believe 8) so wasn't sure if that could be what caused this, or some other issue. Btw, I still had DVDFab 11 install files so I tried with that as well (as I had with Ver. 12) and all same results with 11, 12 and 13. Just FYI.

    Thank you again.

    Thanks but I wasn't trying to create MKV file since I don't have the Ripper module. I did find a work-around for the other two titles that have this issue in this collection (i.e. Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi) using tsMuxer to remux the uncompressed movie (only), importing chapters from BDInfo, then using DVDFab to compress to 25 GB size and the problem disappeared. However, that method did not work with Revenge of the Sith. Hopefully the developers can figure this out and solve the issue. I was surprised to learn that this problem was posted on this forum back in 2017 and yet no solution from DVDFab. Personally, I don't feel that one should have to use a work-around and that DVDFab should be able to fix this.
