Hi I havent been to KVCD for the longest time and I was still using Moviestacker to create my .avs files. Is there a program like Moviestacker that will work with avisynth 2.5 and up that will let me create the optimal scripts needed for a VHS to kdvd conversion?

thanks

Can you remind me what Moviestacker does ? I didn't used it since... 2 years may be more .
But I don't think anything ever replaced it. Personally I simply do my scripts manually using Paranioa for the resize part.

Well it just made making the avs file with all the optimal script details real easy. Like you said i havent used moviestacker in about 2 years myself I have used Paranoia and its great for setting up the resizing aspect of the avs file, but I have some really old VHS tapes that i want to convert to KDVD and need some video filters here and there and Moviestacker just made it easy. Sadly though Moviestacker only worked with avisynth 2.0x and its a pain to have to uninstall and reinstall both versions. I also use AutoGordianKnot for making xvids which uses Avisynth 2.5x. Its just more of a hassle

Actually what you need is to update the script suggested by Moviestacker for VHS to something that works with avs 2.5 ?

There is two solutions :
1/ give us the script and let see what can be done .
2/ or use that to use 2.0x plugins in avs 2.5.

I tried using option number 2 but had lots of problems with it I can just give you the basic script from Paranoia. It seems to open up well in Tmpgenc. here it is:

AviSource("C:\2burn\moms2.avi")
BicubicResize(704,480,1./3.,1./3.,0,0,352,480)


This is just a basic old home video at 29 fps and i want to turn it into a KDVD at 704x480 with all the optimal VHS filters.

thanks

What problem did you have with LoadPluginEx.dll ?
Converting VHS ... jeez that's far beyond my memories .
Anyway : don't use KDVD resolution, it's useless. Strick to VCD resolution, the quality will be the same and you will put 14h on a disc. If we manage to provide you a decent script .

As I said, What is the 2.0 script that you want to use ? Changing all the filters by some available in 2.5 should not be a problem.

basically just the optimal vhs script here

unfilter(50,50)
GripCrop( X, Y )
GripSize(resizer="BicubicResize")
STMedianFilter(8, 32, 0, 0, 8, 32)
FaeryDust() # or PixieDust()
mergechroma(blur(1.50))
mergeluma(blur(0.2))
# Convolution3d or DCTFilter for extreme worse cases.
GripBorders()

mind you without the gripborder or the grip anything

You should try the basic but efficient :
Code:
AviSource("C:\2burn\moms2.avi")
BicubicResize(704,480,1./3.,1./3.,0,0,352,480) 
LanczosResize(704,480,0,0,352,480)

LimitedSharpenFaster()
LRemoveDust_YV12(17,2)
But as I said : you should better NOT use 704x480. 352x240 is far enought. You may try if your player supports not standard 352x480.

That's normal .
Pick up my plugin directory there and take all filters you need (or take them all that will be easier ) :

It should have something after "colorspace". YV12 and/or YUY2 I guess.
Your capture is probably RGB. Just add a ConvertToYV12() (or convertToYUY2()) just after the "avisource" line.
