I want to encode two episodes of "Band of brothers". I already got the vob files on my harddisk and I've got some problems with the choise of my filters.
The first episode lasts 1h 10min 19sec
The second episode lasts 50min 11sec
I want to encode each episode on 1 CD (80 min) (both episodes on 1 CD won't be possible I guess?)
The aspect ratio of the movie is neither 1.85:1 nor 2.35:1... (I am a little bit confused about this one->see Screenshot 1 http://homepages.compuserve.de/mseeger2000/1_aspect.jpg)
The video is quite noisy I think (Screenshot 2 http://homepages.compuserve.de/mseeger2000/2_noise.png)
Now, which template and which combination of these filters would you recommend:

avisynth.dll
Blockbuster.dll
cnr2.dll
Convolution3D.dll
Dup.dll
FluxSmooth.dll
Focus2.dll
GrapeSmoother.dll
LegalClip.dll
MPEG2DEC.dll
MPEG2DEC2.dll
MPEG2Dec3.dll
MSharpen.dll
NoMoSmooth.dll
PeachSmoother.dll
RangeInfo.dll
SimpleResize.dll
TemporalCleaner.dll
UnFilter.dll


Thank you!

I've used the following for high-action/motion video... looks just as good as the source file (using HALF KDVD TEMPLATE, CQ=90), but your milage may vary:

LoadPlugin("V:\encoding\MPEG2DEC.dll")
LoadPlugin("V:\encoding\fluxsmooth.dll")
LoadPlugin("V:\encoding\blockbuster.dll")
LoadPlugin("V:\encoding\legalclip.dll")

mpeg2source("x:\xxxxx\xxxxxx.xxx")

LegalClip()
BilinearResize(xxx,xxx,xxx,xxx)
FluxSmooth()

Blockbuster( method="noise", detail_min=1, detail_max=10, variance=1 )

AddBorders(xx,xx,xx,xx)
LegalClip()

I used this:

LoadPlugin("C:\PROGRA~1\DVD2SVCD\MPEG2Dec\MPEG2DEC .dll")
mpeg2source("G:\Rip\DVD2AV~1.D2V")
LoadPlugin("C:\Programme\DVD2SVCD\Dlls\unfilter.dl l")
Unfilter(20,20)
BilinearResize(352,216)
AddBorders(0,36,0,36)
LoadPlugin("C:\Programme\DVD2SVCD\Dlls\temporalcle aner.dll")
temporalcleaner(5,10)

The results weren't that good using the new kvcd_lbr tmeplate.
But after I switched to VBR_2Pass Mode the results improved very much!


@markums2k: How many CDs do you need for an average movie with your settings/template???

I think this one was written (or at least heavily modified) by Dividee.

This may be Tom Barry's version.

I'm fairly sure this is Marc FD's version. It also comes in an Avisynth 2.5/YV12 flavour.

As for the difference between them, I really have no idea. I personally use Dividee's version and have never had a single problem with it .

In practice the only difference is that Marc FD's version has some post-processing options; deblocking and deringing like in ffdshow for example. Actually I think that his MPEG2DEC3 and ffdshow use the same algos.

The 2.0x version has some bugs and I'm quite unhappy to see that he left the old version quite unfinished. The 2.5a version is usable although it has some known problems as well.

Personally I use Dividee's version.
