So I've been having great success lately using the Divx-->KVCD guide here to convert all my downloaded movies, but now I'm branching out to dvd ripping and am having some problems! I'm trying to follow Sefy's newest guide but I find things get confusing, especially because there's so many types of films and the fact that it doesn't address the KVCD templates at all. Or Avisynth which seems to be "the way to go" here on this forum.

With that being said I'm trying to rip the Babylon 5 Season 1 discs. Following the guide, I ripped with DVD Decryptor, frameserved with DVD2AVI, converted to AVI using VFAPI converter, downsampled the AC3 and converted to MP2 using HeadAC3he, and now encoding using TMPGENC. But when I load my basic avs script I get the error "LegalClip: Source must be YUV2". In DVD2AVI I selected Force Film. I'm a bit confused if that is necessary also... The source is 16:9 NTSC, 29.9fps. Here's my avs script:

Code:
LoadPlugin("d:\program files\avisynth2\plugins\MPEG2DEC.dll")
LoadPlugin("d:\program files\avisynth2\plugins\LegalClip.dll")
LoadPlugin("d:\program files\avisynth2\plugins\Blockbuster.dll")
LoadPlugin("d:\program files\avisynth2\plugins\FluxSmooth.dll")
LoadPlugin("d:\program files\avisynth2\plugins\Sampler.dll")
LoadPlugin("d:\program files\avisynth2\plugins\GripFit_Preview.dll")
avisource("E:\Movies\BABYLON5_SEASON_1\VIDEO_TS\1x01 forced film_d2v_vfapi.avi", false)
LegalClip()
GripCrop(528, 480, overscan=1)
GripSize()
FluxSmooth()
LegalClip()
#Sampler(length=24)
One final question: what should my settings be for frame rate, aspect ratio, and video arrange in all possible locations for TMPGenc? And if there is a guide somewhere that I don't know about please let me know! Thanks in advance and sorry for all the newbie questions.

I had a very lengthy reply to your post and then when I accidentaly loaded the kvcdx2 guide from the main page to copy the url, my browser crashed. It's a very good guide, but it might not work if you're running Opera 7

You need to add ConvertToYUY2() before LegalClip().

with DVD2AVI 1.76, load vobs, press F5 to preview, check video type in the statistics window and if >=95% then check FORCE FILM.

I too had a long post originally but then Netscape crashed on me so I had to write it all out again! Thanks for pointing me to the KVCDx2 guide, it looks quite helpful. In the guide he explains that in TMPGEnc, the Source Aspect Ratio under the Advanced tab should reflect that of the source (as shown using DVD2AVI). Should I then use this same aspect ratio in the Video tab? And finally, what should my Frame Rate be? 23 if I did Force Film or 29.9 if I didn't? If I do everything right, should I notice no jerkiness in the video due to dropped frames or is this always a consequence when going from DVD --> MPEG1?
