Hey guys.

I've tested the new version with a ~6 hours stream and put the Project-File into CQMatic but if I start I can only read:

Quote:
Preparing for calibration phase...
And it runs and runs and after five minutes and more the programm doesn't work. Ich use the newest free version of TMPGEnc. What I've done wrong?

Yes that's it. I click "Prediction" and the Programm seems to works but only in preparing phase and it doesn't go on.

CQMatic 1.4.0.4

I've experienced the above message and waiting, with the program finally progressing after 5 or 10 minutes. Only on one occasian did I reboot to get it to work after 10 minutes or so. Most times, it begins executing immediately. It is a infrequent occurance and hasn't been a big problem so far. It only seems to occur with some PVR-250 captures.

I will post a log if it occurs again.

No. I've merged 3 DVD Movies with DVD2AVI to one D2V File and load it with the optimal script, but it doesn't work. I can't say what it is. The programm only prepare.

For my part, I only use your basic script and Kwag's script (Directshowsource). If it occurs again, I'll post script and log. I know it's of little value to state a problem without necessary information. Just wanted to say what I have personally experienced. Since no one else had mentioned it, I had assumed it was something unique to my machine (P4, WindowsXP). It has not been a great problem for me so far, just slow to start

Is there a specific reason for using DirectShowSource?

PVR-250 spits out MPEG-2 so the way to go is d2v->MPEG2Source

Ok, I was thinking about M-JPEG.

even if it would be a mjpeg capture, the vfw-decoder within ffdshow is capable decoding mjpg. So Avisource() as it uses vfw also when importing avi captures is the way to go.

I'm having the same problems as the original poster. I'm using the optiimal script as well. The program stops functioning on the "preparing" phase, but continues to say "Busy" and it looks like its still working, but it's not. Any suggestions?

## DLL Section ##
#
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\DGDecode.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\grip.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\STMedianFilter.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\asharp.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\unfilter.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\undot.dll")
#
####
## Main section and static filters ###
#
Mpeg2Source("G:\Below_d2v\Below.d2v")
#
undot()
asharp(1, 4)
GripCrop(720, 480, overscan=1, source_anamorphic=true,

dest_anamorphic=true)
GripSize(resizer="BicubicResize")
STMedianFilter(3, 3, 1, 1 )
MergeChroma(blur(1.5))
MergeLuma(blur(0.1))
#
#

## Linear Motion Adaptive Filtering ##
#
# ( Portions from AviSynth's manual )
# This will apply variable temporalsoften
# and variable blur.
# Both filters are active at all times, and work inversely proportional

to the
# activity, measured from current frame to next frame.

ScriptClip(" nf = YDifferenceToNext()" +chr(13)+ "unfilter(

-(fmin(round(nf)*2, 100)), -(fmin(round(nf)*2, 100)) ).TemporalSoften(

fmin( round(2/nf), 6), round(1/nf) , round(3/nf) , 1, 1) ")

#
#
#

GripBorders()
#LetterBox( Your_Values_Here ) # Depends on situation. Use MovieStacker!

#
#
## Functions ###

function fmin( int f1, int f2) {
return ( f1<f2 ) ? f1 : f2
}

Not anyone install ffdshow with the vfw module. And I have to say that this is a bad idea IMHO. Using it is the most convenient way to not beeing able to know wich codec is used while decoding.

For me ffdshow is a Direct Show filter and should not be anything else.

@Kwag

Now, it works but after one hour CQMatic didn't hit the target of 1200Kbps average. The average Bitrate of the last sample was 1400Kbps. That's too much.

I use a 450 minutes Movie with a max. Bitrate of 5000Kbps anf min. Bitrate 0 because of more quality in high action scenes. And I use your MA Script. What I've done wrong?
