Hi guys.

I've been reading up and don't see that any of you are using this plugin. I did some comparisons between Moviestacker and FitCD with the autofitcd plugin and the later is better I think on letterboxed movies

For example the movie the Game is 2.35:1 letterboxed widescreen encoded as 4:3. This means the movie has black bars as part of the video stream. When I used Moviestacker to get a bicubic resize it game me 688x480 with TV overscan of 1.

Using the fitCD and autofitcd plugin I get 688x288. So what this tells me is that Moviestacker is producing settings that encode the black bars of the letterboxed movie. This is a big waste of bitrate and encoding space. The FitCD plugin is accurately measuring movie with letterboxing, hacking off the borders then it re-adds them with the addborders() command at the end.

Quality is better this way because you get better use of your bits. I was suprised to see zero hits for the autofitcd plugin here, of course I'm a newbie to KVCD, but I thought I'd share.

Hi audi2honda,

That is basically what GripFit does. I haven't got around to update the current adaptive script to use it. GripFit has been used in the 2.0x current script for a while

Hi kwag, Thanks for being so helpful with my questions.

I'll keep an eye out for your gripfit when you get it into the optimal script. I guess i'll use fitcd for now.

All this scripting is so new to me and so powerful.

Try MovieStacker instead of FitCD
Also, the script was just updated with GripFit moments ago
