Avisynth: DTC Block + the blockbuster filter ?
 
I've been ripping for 4 days so I'm a newbie. I've been using a method of DVDx to Avisynth to TMPenc and the results are great and I'm able to rip and encode to MPEG 1 in about 4+ hours. It looks great on my Computer, however wehn I play it on my 31 inch TV I notice a lot of block especailly on walls and dark colors. From reading I hear this is called DTC block and I've read about the blockbuster filter and would like to use it. I have the avisyth.dll (1.4 as version 2 doesn't seem to work with this setup) in the sytem 32 directory and registered. I'm totally confused about writing a script for avisynth. Alll I want is to get rid of the DTC block and I'll be perfectly happy. Can someone tell me what I need to do or just attach a script and where i need to put it. As far as avisynth is concerned all I hac is the .dll installed. I'll do some more reading but can anyone make it simpler for me.
Thanks,
Tim

Hi Tim,

Here's a functional .avs I'm currently using:

Code:

LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\MPEG2DEC.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\fluxsmooth.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\GripFit_preview.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\blockbuster.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\legalclip.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\sampler.dll")

Mpeg2Source("K:\COUNT_OF_MONTE_CRISTO\VIDEO_TS\count.d2v")
LegalClip()
GripFit(width=352, height=480, overscan=1)
FluxSmooth()
Blockbuster(method="noise", variance=.3, seed=1)
LegalClip()

Sampler(length=24)
## MPEG size = ((Total frames/MovieTimeInMinutes)/24) * MPEG sample file size ##

With this script, you only have to change the "Mpeg2Source" line and point it to your .d2v, and change the output resolution you want in the GripFit line :D Remember to set the Video arrange method on TMPEG to "Center".
For more information on SansGrip's filters and prediction, check the related section here in the forum.

Thanks Kwag!
My last post didn't make it so here it is again.
What the heck do I do with this code? Do I create a text file or what? I'm totally lost because I only have the avisynth.dll in my computer so I don't know what to do with this script. I'll do some more research while waiting on a reply. Is anyone working on a GUI for this thing? Would be much easier.

You can automatically write a basic skeleton .avs script by using FitCD. For that code to work, just copy and past it to notepad and save it with a name that has extension .avs. Then, if you have AviSynth properly installed, you can test that it's working by opening the .avs with WMP. You should see your movie playing :D

Sorry, Maybe I'm stupid or something but I just don't get it. If I'm using DVDx to serve to TMPGenc via DVDx's avisynth plug-in, then even after writing the script, what opens what? This is way over my head and I'm usually pretty good at this sort of stuff, but I'm way out in left field here. There's got to be a better way!There ought to be a program out there like DVDx or Copy DVD that have such an easy interface but could encode as well as TMPGenc or Cinema Craft and gives you decent filtering and other options. It ain't out there as far as I can tell and the process of using 5 to 6 different programs to do this is a bit of a joke.
Thanks for trying to help, it's just a little frusterating.
I'll keep trying.
