Advantages/disadvantages of using GripCrop() or FitCD?
Hello! New member, new post :lol:

Well. FITCD can generate avisynth scripts for manipulating overscan:

Here is a script for an avi 720x480 and overscan=3:


# -= AviSynth v2.5.5.0 script by FitCD v1.2.4 =-

And this is a script using GripCrop():


width=720  #352, 480, 528, 704, 720
height=480  #240, 480


Well, my question is: is there any difference between these two methods(fitcd and gripcrop() ) ? Is GripCrop() better ?

best regards

Hi sparskter, and welcome :)
I suggest you keep using FitCD, because GripFit sometimes will give you a (pun intended) fit :lol:
Really. Sometimes it just gets confused with the source, and will give you wrong parameters. So it's better to keep using FitCD.

Let do a slightly different answer : GripCrop is aimed to cut the existing borders of the source and then resize the remaining areq (called film area) correctly.

It's true that FitCD is better to compute the resizing parameters but you have to feed with correct values if there are some borders in your source (border that you have to find using virtualdub and the nulltransform filter for instance).
