Hi everyone,
I was trying to encode this divx movie (4.12), i did what i usualy do, put it in the optimal script and run it through tok but i noticed the picture was more blue than usual everyone's face looked very blue, i tried running the script through media player and it was same thing, i reinstalled divx that didn't help. then i finaly fixed it by removing gripfit from the script and using the frameserver in vdub i wonder what caused it!! any ideas it's the first time it happens to me, i am just curious.

It was probably a color space issue. Try adding "ConvertToYUY2()" or "ConvertToYV12()" after your AviSource() line in your script, and try loading it up again

Try uninstalling your DivX CODECs and installing the XviD CODECs.

It's Codec related. Install the newest version of your DivX Codec.

You may need to use the SwapUV() command just after the AVISOURCE line. I have the same problem on some avi's, especially video captures and normally at 1/2 dvd res only.

Cheers,

Fiz.

SwapUV / UToY / VToY / YToUV

These four filters are available starting from v2.5.

SwapUV swaps chroma channels (U and V) of a clip. Sometimes the colors are distorted (faces blue instead of red, etc) when loading a DivX or MJPEG clip in AviSynth v2.5, due to a bug in DivX (?). You can use this filter to correct it.
FYI. More info on the SwapUV() function from the Avisynth manual.

Is it a good idea to add the
SwapUV() line to all my scripts since I don't want to wait til it finish encoding and find out and then reencode. Will it cause any problem? I have had this problem with some Divx 3 videos.

you can usualy tell if it's too blue by going a bit forward in tmpgenc but i am not sure if it's a good idea to leave it there i don't see why not

Actually all my videos looks fine in TMPGEnc., they encode fine too. The problem arises only when I use CCE with AVISynth so I guess I'll leave the code in all my scripts.
