Win HOW TO - Kodi 2D - 3D - UHD (4k) HDR Guide Internal & External Players

<rule filetypes="mkv|avi|mp4|mpg|m2ts|vob|bdmv|rar|iso|" player="MPC-BE">

I use FSE for 3D and 4k HDR and retain 10bit.  Nothing is required to be on or off differentiating the two.  Not sure why it would be for you.  But if you insist, the bats don't need to control the on/off.  madVR already does.  Create a 'Rendering' profile for 3D, turn on FSE for it and off for your other profiles.  This way, it toggles FSE on when 3D mode is engaged, and off when finished.  I think this profile rule will work for you:

if (3D) "3D"
else if (srcWidth <= 720) and (srcHeight <= 576)"SD"
else if (srcWidth <= 1280) and (srcHeight <= 720)"HD"
else if (srcWidth <= 1920) and (srcHeight <= 1080)"FHD"
else if (srcWidth <= 3840) and (srcHeight <= 2160)"UHD"
else "4K"
Thanks! Apologies, somehow overlooked your reply.  I can't playback 4K HDR remuxes on FSE all, not sure why; could be my GT 1030, but windowed mode works fine.  Also got some odd 3D issues using powerdvd 17 (tearing, jitter etc) with MVC remuxes, but haven't had time to debug.
