I've been using the optimal VHS script, but had to make some alterations because it doesn't work on my pc as posted in this forum. Specifically:

When I use unfilter on the first line, I get an error message and tmpgenc can't encode. But if I place unfilter after faerydust, it works. So does the order of filters really matter in a script? I'm assuming it does, so why won't unfilter work here if it's on the first line?

Also, Gripfit doesn't work at all. It causes tmpgenc to shut right down. If I remove it, all works fine. Again, what's the problem?

Lastly, perhaps I'm an ignoramus, but I only see 4 parameters for stmedianfilter as defined by moviestacker, yet the script contains 6. What's that all about?

Does anyone know the answers to the above problems? I have a ton of old home movies on VHS which I'm trying to convert to DVD. Some of my source tapes are rather grainy and I love the results I get using the optimal script. But why can't I get it to work as posted?

Btw, I'm using Avisynth v2.5 and Tmpgenc Plus 2.5 on a windows XP machine if that helps.

VERY strange. What is the exact error message ?

Gripfit !
It does not handle certain source res (for whatever reason I don't remember well) and do not like to enlarge a video.

The script is for avisynth 2.0 exclusively. The 2.0 version of stmedianfilter has 6 parameters.

Then you can't use the script as we provided it.

The script is for VHS and Capture... there is a complete section now for that, including a sticky toppic with optimal scripts :
AVI(Captures, HuffYUV, lossless, etc.) to KVCD/KDVD

Note: the only problem is that the capture are often interlaced. To deal with that you have to read this other toppic :

Well, but I am still not sure if the VHS script in the sticky topics is compatible with avisynth 2.5 or it is ????

Excuse me. No, it is not. FaeryDust is for 2.0x only.
But you can use it in 2.5 by using the loadpluginex.
