Hi KVCD.Net

I can not get calcumatic to open a DGIndex .d2v

so i have decided to do manual file size prediction
frames / mins / 24 method. as i prefer manual way of doing it

what my question is .. how can i find the number of "frames" and length in minutes of a .d2v file ???

Thank you

OMG !
Calcumatic opens the d2v just to take the length in minutes and seconds. Data that you can enter also... manually !

If you installed DGIndex, you can open in directly into tmpgenc as DGIndex adds a VFAPI plugin that tmpgenc can use (see in options -> environnemental settings -> VFAPI). Then you open the preview (menu File) and there you can look at the length and the frame numbers.

Other solution : do an avisynth script :
Code:
Mpeg2source("your source.d2v")
Info()

Or create a d2v file and when it finishes successfully then choose the TOOLS menu and hit the PARSE D2V option.
That will open a notepad window with a full description of your project.
Note how your project file starts up on frame 0.
Page down to the end of the notepad window and check the last frame number.
Say you got 196154.
Since your project always starts on 0 that means your movie has 196155 frames in total.
Now divide 196155 for the framerate.
Say your framerate is 25fps as in PAL source.
196155/25=7846,2
7846,2 seconds in total which is the same as saying ~2h10m46s.
Easy huh?

Yep but that's only if HC is compatible with the DGDecode.dll that you're using .
If Neuron2 launches a new DGDecode.dll in his DGMPGDec tool then HC can't read that file directly and you'll have to load it in an avs script if you want to know the details.
The only *standalone* but pain in the ass method that I know of is the one that I posted above.
But nowadays you don't have to do all that math that I posted above.
Now DGIndex>Tools>Parse D2V does all that math stuff for you and it gives you the total frames and the total hours/minutes/seconds/tenth of seconds.
Cheers
