Dear sirs:
I am trying to follow black prince's guide, and I am doing fine until I reach step4. What happens here is that Movie Stacker is not responding at all, it just sits there with no action. I have uninstalled and re-installed this program with the same results. Any ideas on how to get over this issue?

Thanks

Hi Totonho03,

Does Movie Stacker load at all? Because from my short experience with it, it doesn't appear to to much at all, just load and sit there..

If it is loading, you should see the "MPEG Resize & AviSynth Script" screen. At the bottom LH quadrant of the program screen you should see something that resembles black prince's AviSynth script. For the novice user like myself, I have found that the best way to use Movie Stacker is to select "Load" presets (Bottom of the screen in the middle) and load the appropriate preset (I used KVCDx3_528x480.pst), then click on Source (Almost at the top of the left hand corner). Select your movie source (The d2v file you made with DVD2AVI), then Save Script (Bottom Right Hand Corner). Remember where you save thid script as you will need this in your next step.

I have inserted black prince's example in for the script, but the pictures became artifacted, skin times tended towards yellow and black screens were green.. So far I've found the default to be OK except for a comb effect when there is movement and I'm investigating the decomb filter.

If Movie Stacker is crashing (Rather than just sitting there doing nothing), then I can't help you..

I hope that this has helped.

-Rassilon

Hi Rassilon:
Thank you for your reply. I was able to run MovieStacker, and actually I was able to perform the compression, but unfortunately, I run into another problem. All of a sudden, I have no audio. I have already upgraded all audio drivers, but still receive the message stating that there is no audio hardware or that the hardwae is not responding. Do not know what caused that, and am trying to restore the audio in my computer, but so far, nothing that I do restores the audio.
Thanks

Hello all:

I am sorry to bother again, but I am really confused with this KVCD. I have been trying to follow Black prince's guide, and I am running into problems. To begin with, I get errors like floating decimal points, then I starting reading about the scripts- sorry, but but due to my ingnorance in these matters, I became more confused with this-, but nevertheless, loaded a couple of filters, except that I do not know where to place these filters. I am assuming that Moviestacker is where they should go, except that I do not know where and how to intall them. And once intalled, How do you manually set them within Moviescrypt, do you type them as depicted in kwags Code? Is that all you do? type that is, and TOK may recognize it automatically
Last week, I was able to go all the way to Tmpgenc, and tried burning it using Nero, except that Nero did not recognize the format that I had saved. (I erased everything and tried again, and now I am getting floating decimal errors, as well as other problems that I did not record)
As Rassilon asked a couple of days ago, where do you find the "decomb" in the avs script?

I am going to once again follow the guide, to the letter, and come back to the forum for help. Again, I do not mean to be a pain, but would like to be able to burn KVCDs. As you can detect, I am really a newie, and your help is greatly appreciated,

Thanks and Happy Holidays

P.S.- Is there a guide for Moviestacker?
Black Prince calls for Avisynth in his guide, but is it being used by another software?

Hello again:
I did try to back up again, and have problems. This is my set up:

My script is:

LoadPlugin("F:\DVD Projects\1 Programs\Movie Stacker\Filters\MPEG2Dec.dll")
LoadPlugin("F:\DVD Projects\1 Programs\Movie Stacker\Filters\TemporalCleanerOld.dll")
LoadPlugin("F:\DVD Projects\1 Programs\Movie Stacker\Filters\GripFit_preview.dll")
LoadPlugin("F:\DVD Projects\1 Programs\Movie Stacker\Filters\DustV5.dll")
LoadPlugin("F:\DVD Projects\1 Programs\Movie Stacker\Filters\LegalClip.dll")
LoadPlugin("F:\DVD Projects\1 Programs\Movie Stacker\Filters\Sampler.dll")

Mpeg2Source("F:\DVD Projects\Movies\2 DVD2AVI ac3 .dv2 out\gcapril19pm.d2v")
LegalClip()
GripCrop(528, 480, overscan=2, dest_anamorphic=true)
GripSize(resizer="BicubicResize")
SpaceDust()
TemporalSmoother(radius=2, strength=3)
TemporalCleaner(ythresh=5, cthresh=10)
GripBorders()
LegalClip()

Sampler(length=24)
## MPEG size = ((Total frames/MovieTimeInMinutes)/24) * MPEG sample file size * .98 ##

Mi TOK log is
===============================================
ToK Log: F:\DVD Projects\Movies\2 DVD2AVI ac3 .dv2 out\gc19appm1.avs
===============================================
Resolution (fps):528x480 (29.970 fps)
Total Frames: 1824
Total Time : 00:01:01

Audio Size: 109,305,216
Required Video Size: 641,970,236

Factor: 59.940
Desired Sample Size: 10,710,214

Prediction: 1st Group of Passes
-------------------------------------------------------------

Next CQ: 70.000. Sample Size: 5,800,370
NextCQ: 129.253 >=90, so check is needed
Next CQ: 90.000
Sample Size: 104,070

NextCQ: 9,262.221 >=90 once again, a more detailed check is needed
Next CQ: 90.000
Sample Size: 10,407

Final CQ: 90.000
Total Time For Predicition: 00:01:22

Total Time (all operations): 00:01:22

Finished
===============================================

After running TOK, I receive the following error message:

Sampler:sampler must be>=2
F\dvdProject..........\.....\videoavs, line28.
This appears at the tmpg software, and keps on running it over and over..........

I have run different .acs set ups with the same message. When running Decrypter, I used files and only the files for the main movie. I have also used Control A to highlight all files, but the results were the same. I am obviously doing sameting wrong, but do not know what. The DVD I am trying to back up is not a movie, it is a Brazlian concert, taped in NTSC format.

Thanks for your help

Hello bman

Thank you for your advice. I am removing the sampler line from the scrypt with the # character.
Since I sent my last posting, I have not being able to burn a kvcd. Just to recap: I am doing fine up to TOK, and then run into problems when I hit the start command. Do not know if the problems are caused by moviestacker, TOK or the TMPGenc programs. One doubt that I have: when using TOK, should I try to load TMPGenc parameters prior to using TOK? or are the parameters automatically set by TOK.
What I am presently doing is erasing everything and re-loading the programs again. Then I will try it KVCD again, and if I run into problems I will once again post them
Tx.

I'm having a problem with ToK as well. When it does it's test of the avs script, TMPGEnc cannot read the file. The error is consistently dies on the following line found in the video.avs script that ToK uses to test the file for quality settings.

LoadPlugin("")

TMPGEnc continues to display that it cannot read the plugin ""

Is there a work around to this? I have successfully frame served TMPGEnc the D2V file through avisynth to resize it, but it would nice if I could get the quality setting through ToK before doing the projecct.

Best regards,
FractalAB

Perhaps you have already resolved this problem, but just in case: I had a similar problem, and found that, due to deleting some files and re-installing some others, in my case, the path to the filters were not correct. Once I corrected such paths, the program worked with no problems. Again, sorry for sending this late, and hopefully your problem is already corrected.
Regards

You have not specified a shortcut to your plugins, your script should look something like this,

LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\Mpeg2dec.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\GripFit_Preview.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\LegalClip.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\STMedianFilter.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\UnFilter.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\Convolution3D.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\DustV5.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\textsub.vdf")

AviSource("E:\-=[ DIGITAL WAREZ ]=-\-=[ VIDEOS ]=-\Evil_Dead_2.divx5.kalbshirn.ShareReactor.avi")
ConvertToYUY2()

LegalClip()
Sharpen(0.65)
GripCrop(704, 576, overscan=4)
TextSub("E:\KVCD Converting\KVCD CACHE\Subtitles\Evil Dead 2 - Fin - 25fps - 1987.sub")
GripSize(resizer="bilinearResize")
STMedianFilter(10, 50, 0, 0, 10, 50)
SpaceDust()
unfilter(50,50)
mergechroma(blur(1.5)
mergeluma(blur(0.3))
Convolution3D(preset="movieLQ")
GripBorders()
LegalClip()

Hi,

Following the steps in this guide, in the prediction stages of ToK the AVS-script seems corrupt. In TMPG the preview screen states something about "division by zero" on the last line of the AVS-script. Seems to be an error message from Avisynth.

I don't have access to my computer at this time, so I can't post the failing script. I remember that the script contains a line:

interval = round((FrameRate/25)/60)/10

or something similar. This variable is later used in the last line which I dont remember but is something like

SelectFrames(round(blabla/interval)....

which could be the reason. I don't really know if this is normal or not, but it seems to be an error to me...

/C

Hi athan,

LOOSE YOUR CAPS

You can use TMPEG's built in audio encoder. Just open your WAV and convert to .MP2. But quality will never be the same as with HeadAC3he.

Hi,

The DLL's are at this link: http://mitglied.lycos.de/darkav/svcdguide/svcd.html , you have to put them in the same folder where you extracted Headach3e.

But I have a problem with the avs script.
I am from germany. and i would make a copy from the dvd "The Foreigner".

I have the Problem with the moviestacker. I don't know what to do in the program. I looked at the site:http://www.kvcd.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3483

and i copy the script from this site.

LegalClip()

unfilter(50,50)
GripCrop( X, Y )
GripSize(resizer="BicubicResize")
STMedianFilter(8, 32, 0, 0, 8, 32)
# SpaceDust() # Optional - for some "not so clean" DVDs.
temporalsmoother(1,2)
mergechroma(blur(1.50))
mergeluma(blur(0.2))
# Convolution3d or DCTFilter for extreme worse cases.
GripBorders()
LegalClip()

But it doesn't work. AH and this with the filters, i dont know what i must do. I have the Moviestacker v1.1.1 and the AviSynth 2.08 !

Please help me. Thanks

Newbieman from Germany

Is ToK suppose to only generate .m1v files while predicting, but then suck up the headac3he audio and combine them before it starts on the final .mpg? Sorry, i'm a total noob.
