I have a hd tv rip that i want to convert to dvd. The resolution on the avi is 960 * 544, 23.976fps progressive. when i connect the pc to my 42 inch plasma to watch the avi the picture looks incredible, bright and colourfull witth good clarity
There are four episodes, approx 40 mins each, and i wanted to convert them for a single DVDR, using CCE NTSC settings, 720 *480 23.976 FPS , 3:2 pulldown

Normally to convert avi to dvd i have been using the optimal script from the avi captures forum , but i just wanted to know is there anything different i should do to try and retain as much of the quality as possible,


i have already done a test conversion to see the quality, but the conversion i did was good quality but no where near as good as the original avi. I encoded 1 pass VBR average bit rate of 4200, 720 *480. I then played it back on my standalone Panasonic dvd player, the player has been connected with component leads for progressive output.
The picture was clear but slightly grainy


So please any ideas on how to improve the picture
Any help much appreciated.



Heres the script im using

AviSource("C:\Documents and Settings\Khusru Miah\My Documents\e1.avi",flase)
BlindPP(cpu=4)
Blockbuster(method="noise",detail_min=1,detail_max =3,variance=0.1,seed=1)
Convolution3D(1, 6, 12, 6, 8, 2.8, 0)
GripCrop(720, 480, overscan=2, source_anamorphic = false, dest_anamorphic = true)
GripSize(resizer="LanczosResize")
Undot()
TemporalSoften(2,7,7,3,2)
DCTFilter(1,1,1,1,1,1,0.5,0)
GripBorders()

Try a simple :
Code:
AviSource("C:\Documents and Settings\Khusru Miah\My Documents\e1.avi",flase)
BlindPP(cpu=4) 
GripCrop(720, 480, overscan=2, source_anamorphic = false, dest_anamorphic = true)
GripSize(resizer="LanczosResize")
LremoveDust_YV12(17,1)

GripBorders()

function LRemoveDust_YV12(clip input, int clmode, int "limit")
{
limit=default(limit,2)
clmode=default(clmode,17)
repmode = 2
clensed = Clense(input)
rep = Repair(clensed, input, mode=repmode)
rg = RemoveGrain(rep, mode=clmode)
return LimitChange(rg, input, limit, limitU=255)
}
You will need the Remograin 0.9 package (do a search on the forum).

Note: if you notice a lost in colors, then add this :
Code:
ColorMatrix(mode="rec.601->rec.709") # for CCE
#ColorMatrix(mode="rec.709->rec.601") # for TMPGEnc

i tried it out, the script u gave worked a charm, picture is definatly a lot more clear and sharp.

But the tests i did with the color matrix seemed to have made the color slightly darker.
also i noticed the fast moving scenes got slightly blocky, is this because im using vbr 2 pass bitrate of 4200 average, should i do more passes and would this solve the blocks on fast scenes?
on the source avi the fast scenes are very clear[/IMG]

With such Max that's stange. But you can drop the min to 0. Or see if a 3rd pass can fix the problem.

okay mate, will give it a go. thanks again for your help

sorry one last question. The source is NTSC 23.976 proggressive, i want to keep the progressive picture, so im encoding at 23.976 (internally 29) fps with 2:3 pulldown, would that be the best option?

i have just come across a problem. i had a line missing from the script you gave
'LremoveDust_YV12(17,1) '

and now i tried to play the script it shows error Ran out of memory (Error=8007000E). And something tells me that some of the features of the script were not running in all my tests because of the missing line.
Please help?

For sure, look at the script : this is the ONLY filter applied, so if you miss it, you miss all

Your memory error is probably due to GripFit. Stop using it and compute the resizing values with FitCD.

Be sure you are using last version removegrain pack v0.9, and that you use dlls agree with your processor (sse, sse2 or sse3). You should keep only one of these dll groups (i.e. don't mix sse2 with sse3 dlls).

It is not "you should", it's "you must". remove all others dll from that package.

Maybe you could explain me the difference between should and must.
I interpreted should and must as mandatories, but should more that must.
As I learned english for myself nobody explained me the correct use of both expressions.
Could you, please?
END OT

Should is an advice, must an "order".
Understand "you should" as "I suggest you to" and "must" as "you have to !".

okay here us where i get my filters from http://www.avisynth.org/warpenterprises/

but this site only shows removegrain 25_dll and mentions nothing of 0.9 version. Furthermore i never realised the filters you download have to specific for your PC, the filters from this site mention nothing of this either, they only separate them by which version of avisynth u are using (2.0 or 2.5). Where do i get the correct filters for my Pc amd athlon ?

And "must not" means "you cannot" instead of "you don't have to".

http://www.removegrain.de.tf is the place for RemoveGrain v0.9.

As has been said, delete all RemoveGrain, Repair and SSETools plugins from the plugins folder and extract the correct ones from the RemoveGrain package there. The ones for your CPU are RemoveGrain.dll, Repair.dll and SSETools.dll. If you still can't get it working, remove those dlls and put the ones with "S" in the name just before the extension to the plugins folder.
