Recording Video: Suggest best capture format
 
Couple of days back I captured Ben-hur movie from TV with following format

640x480
MPEG2
4000 bitrate
29.9 fps
5.2 GB file size
3hr 40 min

Suggest me a good KVCD format to store it in CDs (Max of two).

Regards
Dominic

First of all, you need to IVTC that movie, because the the original was DEFINITELY shot FILM :)
I thought Ben Hur was longer than that :!:
Anyway, 3 hours and 40 minutes should go fine on two CDs at 528x480. Make a small sample with predicted CQ and see if the quality is ok. If not, then go for 352x480, and I'm sure it will look pristine on two CDs ;)

Inverse Telecine. You have to use the lines:
Code:

## Your MPEG2source or AvisSource line here ###
Telecide()
Decimate()

after your source line in your .avs script.
Then you can encode at 23.976fps.

Here's some information related to IVTC: http://www.inmatrix.com/articles/ivtcsynth.shtml

Currently I have two lines in the script

LoadPlugin("D:\DVD_SVCD_VCD\MovieStacker1.1.1\Filt ers\MPEG2Dec3.dll"
Mpeg2Source("D:\WorkArea\BenHur0.mpg")

When I try to open it with WMPlayer I am getting "MPEG2Source: Coudnt open file Line 2".

Is there any good documentation on AviSynth usage? How to debug and how to run properly etc. (Mainly for newbie like me).

Thanks and Regards
Dominic

You need first create .d2v file from your mpeg using dvd2avi (file -> save project or something like that) and then put something like mpeg2source("movie.d2v")
