First and foremost I would like to thank Kwag for the wonderfull job he has done with kvcd.
I used to be a fan of Sefy's SeVCD format and I'm glad to see that giants meet
And Doom9 deserves hudge credits for DV2SVCD too.
Thanx guys!

Here is a way to automate all tedious tasks of KVCD creation, letting DVD2SVCD
doing all the painfull job :

-Ripping
-Maxing sound quality
-Desinterlacing
-Getting correct aspect ratio
-Using subtitles
-Calculating bps
-Muxing right
-Creating CD image

What is nice is the convenience and speed :
On a P4 1.6Go encoding time is 4h (without ripping). With a 10 min manipulation on the PC.
Movie size : 430 Mo. Quality is kvcd quality (superbe).

Nice also is the fact that you can eventually use DVD2SVCD to automatically do everything
(dvd rip, subs rip, etc.) before the encoding phase.
Then you can stop it and launch an encoding on the Avisynth file generated.
It looks like this :

LoadPlugin("E:\VIDEO\DVD2SVCD\MPEG2DEC\MPEG2DEC.DL L")
LoadPlugin("E:\VIDEO\DVD2SVCD\INVERS~1\DONALD~1\DE COMB.DLL")
LoadPlugin("E:\VIDEO\DVD2SVCD\AVISYN~1.DLL")
mpeg2source("G:\DVDIMA~1\DVD_BA~1\DVD2AV~1.D2V")
Telecide()
Decimate(5)
TemporalSmoother(2,2)
BilinearResize(352,180)
AddBorders(0,30,0,30)
AvisynthSubtitler("G:\DVDIMA~1\DVD_BA~1\SUBS\","pe rmsubs.txt")

You can also get the finished mpeg and author a KVCD with movie poster as an intro,
and chapters from DVD. Nice.


Here is a textual guide for DVD2SVCD 1.0.9 b2
http://www.doom9.org/mpg/dvd2svcd.htm

I use :
- an NTSC DVD (29.97fps) with a 01:35 movie. Video is interlaced, fullscreen 4:3,
few rapid action scenes, general pace is slow.
- Kwag's template KVCD-CQ-(PAL).mcf
- major changes from the original kvcd telplate are : output@352x280,
vbv size automatic (can't change it)


Warning : These lines may sound difficult for the newbies .
Once set, parameters can be saved in ini file.

* Misc
Press Load setting and choose VCD in DVD2SVCD dir.
Choose a directory for output.
"Don't delete any file" option requires 6-8Go.
Select DVD2SVCD level : Advanced

* Conversion
Choose your DD or ifo.
Aspect ration should be automatically detected. If you play with it stick to 4/3 in any case.

* DVD Rip
If you need it check : Activate DVD Ripping / internal routines

* Audio
Select language
Set Audio 1 bitrate to 128

I trust DVD2SVCD creator about default Azid parameters.
You should get a Dolby Surround Pro Logic soundtrack,, that can be rendered properly by stereo amplifiers bearing the Dolby Surround Pro Logic logo.
Better quality with Dolby Surround Pro Logic II can be obtained manually with Head3AC.
Does anybody here know if all Dolby AC3 amplifiers can render Dolby Surround Pro Logic properly ?

* Frameserver
To lower final movie size check TemporalSm.
To speed up encoding time, set resize method to Bilinear.

Note 1 : Good image format for KVCD should be 1/2DVD (not VCD or SVCD). This choice is not available in DVD2SVCD, so I use VDC 352x288/240 image format. Maybe in next DVD2SVCD version?
Meanwhile you can change AR manually by editing Avisynth script (only for advanced DVD2SVCD users).

* Bitrate
Put number of CD to 1 and cd size to 800 at all lines.
Then at last line use : Max 1750, Min 300, check Min avg 300, Max avg 1750.

* Encoder

Select TMPGEnc & Constant Quality (CQ) & Normal & Field order automatic.
Check : Enable padding & Use Fix CQ value. Enter 70 for Q.
On (advanced settings) modify gop structure with 1, 15, 3, 1, 0.
Uncheck no motion search and detect scene change.

* Matrix : don't change.

* BbMPEG
Important : under (bbMPEG output setting) check VBR (movie size issue).

* Subtitles
Rip permanent subtitles if you wish.

* CDImage.
A VCDImager image cue/bin image can be burned directly with CDRWIN.

* Conversion
Press Go, check autoshutdown, confirm subtitles (see DVD2SVCD FAQ) and go to bed.

Reads prefectly on both PC and DVD reader.


Be happy,

Graal_CPM.


PS : Watch out with subtiltes! DVD2SVCD sizes fonts according to resolution you have choosen. If you run DVD2SVCD with VCD format as output, subtitles won't fit right if you use subtitles automatically generated. On a 702*576 screen, 352*240 subtitles will be displayed in tinny fonts, in the middle of the screen! Dirty.
You can use VirtualDub instead and the excellent Vobsub, both from two excellent coders deserving much praise.

* BbMPEG
Important : under (bbMPEG output setting) check VBR (movie size issue).

Alos I have found out in order to avoid PTS underflows the forced mux rate should be 0.

Update: The latest versions of dvd2svcd DO support 1/2DVD size, and build pre24 fixes some resize issues with the AVISynth script. Future builds might even support XVCD (704x480).

Also, the original author of this post says to not bother changing the matrix, but I suggest editing matricies.ini and adding kwag's matrix to the file and then selecting that on the appropriate tab.

D,

I think i tried the new build 24 but dont recall the setting for 1/2 dvd, the 352x480 one. I do see it on the build 22 release.
Anyway, i've just enabled the Edit Avisynth, part of Video Encoding,,and adjust the Resize then,
resize(704x480)
and it will adjust accordingly. I try a chapter or two first before doing a full encode just to make sure.

I also added the KVCD/Andreas matrix and I noticed that there's a matrix in the matrices.ini file that is almost identical- it's the Angel SVCD 1 CD -just change all the 99's in the intrablock matrix.
