Kwag,

whats up with the aspect ratio for the KVCD PLUS Template?? I'm trying to encode 16:9 film when I select 16:9 Display and Full Screen (Keep Aspect Ratio) the video goes small when I process it as a normal vcd its how I expect it to be. Why is this happening with the KVCD PAL PLUS??

ALL KVCD templates are now set to "Center" on "Video arrange method" in TMPEG. The reason is they are meant to be used with SansGrip's "FitGrip" filters. If you are not using this filters, change the default to "Full screen", or whatever setting is required depending on how you are feeding TMPEG.

I tkae it its centred so it fits on 4:3 and 16:9 without loss of picture? that part doen't bother me, its how small the letter box height is that I find to be way too small.

You need to use either FitCD or GripFit in order to resize the clip to the correct aspect ratio.

I enocded my sample predicted file with audio so I could burn it to play on my dvd player. When I playes it on my dvd player, it was not centred, the picture was huging the left side of the screen is there a way to take off the centre in the templates?

If you use FitCD to do your .avs script, you need to set "Full screen" instead of "Center" in the templates. Just load your template, change the setting to "Full screen", and save the template. Now it will stay "Full screen" every time you open it in the future.

I have it set to full screen but its is still centred in the video, and when I played the sample set at full screen (which was still centred) on my dvd player it was hugging the left of my tv screen.

Hi andybno1,

Try a script like this, and set TMPEG to "Center":

Code:
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\mpeg2dec.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\GripFit_preview.dll") 
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\blockbuster.dll") 
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\legalclip.dll") 
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\sampler.dll") 
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\vobsub.dll") 
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\convolution3d.dll") 
LoadPlugin("C:\encoding\dustv5.dll") 

Mpeg2Source("C:\YourMovie.d2v")  # <--- Change this to point to your movie.
LegalClip() 
GripCrop( width=528, height=576, overscan=2 ) # <--- Change this to your prefered resolution.
GripSize() 
SpaceDust()
Convolution3D(preset="movieLQ") 
Blockbuster(method="noise", variance=.3, seed=1)
GripBorders() 
LegalClip() 

Sampler(length=24) 
## MPEG size = ((Total frames/MovieTimeInMinutes)/24) * MPEG sample file size ##
Just change the mpeg2source line to point to your .d2v file. You can use this script as a framework for just about any movie you want, and the aspect will always be correct.
I set the "GripCrop" line to "528x576" just as an example, because I know you're in PAL land . If you need to do another resolution, say 352x288, then change the line to this: GripCrop( width=352, height=288, overscan=1 )

I found it was the gripborders line that was causing the centre picture, I emoved that line and I have it full screen, only prob is it takes a hell of a lot longer to encode. before removal video enocde = about 13hrs after removal video encode time = around 24hrs how come that its gone up so much?

Ok say you use GripFit and you set the resolution to 352x240
What resolution would you set in TMPEG, What if you want to use the 720x480 template.

This might alrady be answere But i cant Fidn IT.

well I would suggest you set the resolution in the avs script to 720x480, cause if you set the res to 352x240 then used 720x480 the picture would be strecthed and would look terrible.
