Hi LadyMiles,

It's a great read
That's the price to pay when someone goes on vacation for a week or so
I couldn't imagine me taking a one month vacation
At this speed, I wonder what we'll be doing a year from now

Hi guys,
I am keeping a close eye on you people as to what can be done on DVD-R. In fact, don't you guys think the price of DVD-Rs is now reasonable?

BTW, I just called off my X'mas vacation! :P :P

Well, DVD-Rs are much cheaper than they were 6 months ago, but the DVD-R to CD-R price ratio is still a lot. A CD-R is now, what, about 0.19$ each? It's still way way lower than a DVD-R. As far as play time on a DVD-R, I'm thinking on the new GOP and using DVDPatcher to put KVCDx3 528x480 material faked as 720x480 on a DVD-R. I've already done that ( but with a GOP of 18 MAX frames ), and tried it on 5 DVD players. Works perfectly So the future is bright

Hi LadyMiles,

1) Change the GOP in Tmpgenc to 1-12-2-1-24 and don't forget to
uncheck scene detection.

2) Below is the latest avs script example, I hope , for KVCDx3.

LoadPlugin("E:\DVD Backup\2 - DVD2SVCD\MPEG2DEC\MPEG2DEC.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\DVD Backup\2 - DVD2SVCD\BlockBuster\BlockBuster.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\DVD Backup\2 - DVD2SVCD\LegalClip\LegalClip.dll")
mpeg2source("D:\Temp\movie.d2v")
#
IL = Framecount / 50
SL = round(Framerate) * 2
SelectRangeEvery(IL, SL)
#
LegalClip()
LanczosResize(496,44
Blockbuster( method="noise", detail_min=1, detail_max=10, variance=1, seed=1 )
AddBorders(16,16,16,16)
LegalClip()


There is a new Blockbuster 0.6 which uses Seed parameter. This
just sends the same frequency to keep file prediction from changing
after each test.

3) Use 0.98 as your file prediction factor, instead of 0.95

4) If you really want to go all the way, check the first post by Kwag
and look a his second process with Tmpgenc and using Clip Frame.
I use it and it really does decrease file size and thus you can increase
CQ_VBR.

I hope this helps

I'm sure in the next hour the above will have changed, so don't think
Kwag and SanGrip are finished yet

My head is about to explode. I have to believe that things didn't used to happen this fast at KVCD.net. I think on one post I read about new template settings. Are we abandoning the old "StrengthValue = round (BB_StrengthConstant / BB_Resolution) " type script. Lancos resize is back in favor ? I think I am going to make a new thread just full of questions so I can get back up to speed.

hehehehe Yep, it's coming quick and there are lots of
changes. BTW, Kwag favors BilinearResize. I use LanczosResize
beacuse to sharpens too. SansGrip believes sharpen is not necessary
if your source is very good. If I were you I would wait until things
calm down and there are some standards set after all this testing.
There seems to be more tweaking and changes coming up and
you might have to redo the process again. I like what's happening,
since my encodes are improving with each new change

Yeah the changes have been great. I just did Austin Powers 2 and it was perfect. The old kvcd templates used to give my dvd player trouble but apparently the new GOP structures may have fixed alot of sync problems.
I thik with the new filters people will fall more in love with Kwag's templates, because with each new filter the picture gets better. Plus the new cropping method really helps with size and hence quality.
One question should we check "detect scene change" under GOP in TMPGEnc ?

Uncheck detect scene change. Kwag forgot to correct this.
Here's a sample of the new and improved avs script:

LoadPlugin("E:\DVD Backup\2 - DVD2SVCD\MPEG2DEC\MPEG2DEC.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\DVD Backup\2 - DVD2SVCD\BlockBuster\BlockBuster.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\DVD Backup\2 - DVD2SVCD\LegalClip\LegalClip.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\DVD Backup\2 - DVD2SVCD\Sampler\Sampler.dll")
mpeg2source("D:\Temp\movie.d2v")
#
Minutes = round((Framecount/Framerate)/60 )
SL = 24
Sampler(Minutes, SL)
#
LegalClip()
BilinearResize(336,224,0,0,720,480)
BlockBuster(method="noise", variance=1, seed=1 )
AddBorders(8,8,8,8 )
LegalClip()


The manual file prediction formula is:

((total frames / total minutes) / 24 ) * (test file size * .98 ) = est mpeg file

It's very accurate for predictions. Again, this may change in the next hour
