Anti Tearing Option in MPC HC Player
Tearing is one of the most frequent problems happening with home theater computers. Almost invisible on still pictures, this becomes very annoying on panning scenes.
The root reasons of this problem are not quite easy to identify,
but this seems to happen more frequently with Windows XP than with
Vista. MPC-HC has an option that uses the same graphic mode as video
games in order to solve this tearing problem for good.
Unfortunately this option has some small disadvantages, such as:
- It works only if the output is set to "VMR9 Renderless" or "EVR Custom pres."
- In this mode Windows cannot display either context menus or dialog boxes. To open the options window or to load another video file, you first need to close the current video using the "Ctrl+C" system shortcut.
The Tearing test("Ctrl+T" shortcut) displays two red vertical bars on screen panning from left to right in loop. If those bars are not perfectly straight after several rounds, that means you have a tearing problem.
This is an innovative feature in the Media Player Classic that will make your viewing experience even better.
