How long should the encoding take, Im converting a movie (719 MB) and the estimated time is 25 hours, I have Pentium 3 1000Mhz.
This is the script Im using,

LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\Mpeg2dec.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\GripFit_Preview.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\blockbuster.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\LegalClip.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\Sampler.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\DustV5.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\nomosmooth.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\fluxsmooth.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\KVCD Converting\Filters\convolution3d")

avisource("E:\-=[ CACHE ]=-\Reign_of_Fire_(2002).XviD.DMT.ShareReactor.avi")
ConvertToYUY2()
LegalClip()
mergechroma(blur(1.5)
mergeluma(blur(0.6))
GripCrop(528, 576, overscan=2)
GripSize()
SpaceDust()
FluxSmooth(7,7)
NoMoSmooth(40,1,6,1,3,false)
Convolution3d(preset="movieHQ")
Blockbuster(method="sharpen", detail_min=1, detail_max=99, strength=15)
LegalClip()
#Sampler(length=24)

It may be your blockbuster setting. Anything usually to do with sharpening kills the speed.

If youre using 528 x 576, your resolution is big enough and you can take out the blockbuster ( sharpen ) from your script.

Otherwise your movie will be very, very sharp.

This script:
Code:
Import ("G:\sample avisynth scripts\LoadPlugins.h")

Mpeg2Source("G:\video_ts\Ronin.d2v")

LegalClip()
Telecide()
Decimate()
Gripcrop(528,480)
Gripsize(resizer="lanczosresize")
mergechroma(blur(1.58))
mergeluma(blur(0.2))
SpaceDust()
FluxSmooth(7,7)
NoMoSmooth(40,1,6,1,3,false)
Convolution3d(preset="movieHQ")
DctFilter(1,1,1,1,1,1,.5,0)
GripBorders()
LetterBox(0, 0, 8, 8)
LegalClip()

Sampler(length=24)
Takes about 55 minutes on my 1.8 Gig P4 with 512 Mb Ram.
I'm thinking something must be wrong!

Hi Smoochie3,

Check your TMPEG settings, and make sure you set your environment NOT to use multi threaded. Just one CPU.

Hey Kwag,

What OTHER settings should i check besides the multithreading? I have it unchecked, it's still taking 55 minutes to complete. Strange.

Then maybe it's an interaction with one of the filters and the Athlon processor
Try removing a filter at a time, to see which one is causing the long encode time

This script has an estimated time of 5 hours, I tried it with fluxsmooth but it takes twice as much time with it, suggestions?

Remove FluxSmooth, and try NoMoSmooth.
