    Why can't we customize MKV profiles anymore??

    I'm using DVDFAB 10.0.1.6 and trying to rip The Conjuring 2 using MKV but there's no way to adjust the profile settings so that I can passthrough the audio (keep Dolby Atmos).

    The only way to keep Dolby Atmos is to use the MKV Passthrough Profile but that copies the video portion 1:1.

    In DVDFAB 9.3.2.1, I was able to customize the MKV profile so that it would convert the video to H264 High Quality and Copy the audio.

    Is there anyway to customize the MKV profile so that I do what I did in DVDFAB 9, convert video but passthrough Audio?

    MKV Pass through keeps both audio and video same as source.
    MKV default will let you keep either the audio or video.
    I think the original poster was not getting the advanced options icon on the screen, as others have had this problem with screen scaling.
    It may be a screen scaling problem but every setting I've tried with scaling, no scaling, different % of scaling, none of them give me that wrench icon.

    My windows 10 pc is attached to a Samsung KS9000 tv.
    So maybe I'll try attaching it to a pc monitor next to see if I get that wrench icon.

    Thanks again for the help.

    Thanks for the image, but I don't have those options on my screen.
    Not sure why.
    I even updated to .7 and still don't see those option icons.

    My iPad will play MKV files but not 7.1 audio, not many hand held devices will.

    Yeah, I have actually already done that. I was just wondering why one would choose anything else. All systems can take 7.1 and convert to what they need.

    Look at your screenshot above. In the upper right corner is "save my profile" and you can use that as default.

    90312, SUCCESS! Terrific. Thank you that was the last key. Watched Guardians of the Galaxy, IronMan3, and On Stranger Tides all in TrueHD or Atmos 7.1 The rips do take a long time. Anywhere form 2.5 to 3.5hrs. Am I doing something else wrong?

    This begs the question, why not just set it up that way for every rip? Simply pass through the audio directly from the movie?

    Thanks and Happy New Year.

    Here are screen shots of the Title screen and the Adv Settings. You will see the Title is 7.1 Atmos and the Adv Settings only offers 5.1

    90312 - BTW, yes I not only see the wrench I have used for a long time. I have tried both passthrough and default profiles for both MKV and MP4. In both profiles in the title line of DVDfab10 ripping screen I see Atmos 7.1, but in the Advanced Settings screen for that title I only get "same as source" for the video and audio. If I use the default (for either format) I see Atmos 7.1 listed in the title line, but the Advance Settings only offers 5.1 max.

    I re-ripped Star Trek Beyond leaving the Adv Set screen alone and I got another rip in 5.1, not 7.1

    It might be that my DVDfab has a problem as CBR929 seems to suggest. This problem existed with every version DVDfab10. I'm going to go play with DVDfab9 and see what it offers.

    This raises the question, does DVDfab use software codecs or hardware in the ripping pc? The PC is an i7 Intel quad core machine with Intel graphics. I have not added any graphics or audio to it, as I use it mostly as a server for my home and do all my ripping on it. I don't view movies on it. I prefer my 75" UHD and Denon system.

    Try when you select the source disc you uncheck all other audio tracks except 7.1. I just tried H.265 with 7.1 and it worked.

    90312 and CBR929, thanks for the reply. I was working with Passthrough because in the Forum there are a few posts that say the way to get Atmos/7.1 is using that profile. If I select MKV or MKV265 profiles the analyzed audio for the main movie does show as Atmos 7.1, but if I go to advanced settings for that track the choices for audio decoder does not include a 7.1 choice. 5.1 is the max number of channels available. I have been assuming the advanced settings take precedent. That may have been a bad assumption, but reasonable.

    So, I am ripping Star Trek Beyond again using the MKV265 and left the audio and advanced settings alone. I will test it out after it is done. The expected file size for high quality video is about 6GB. That is small enough for me. Now I only need it to have 7.1 included in it.

    c5butch can you see this wrench symbol? That's how you set the advanced settings.

    What profile did you us? Pass through or default to customized it to what you wanted.

    Compressing video H.264 and passing through audio. Seemed to me what the OP was looking for pal.
