OK, have used dmoviestacker to generate the following script and adjusted only the resolution (my toshiba only plays kvcd3 at 352 x 240).

The video file plays fine and full length on both Power DVD and on Windows Media Player.

Problem is, when I mux the video and audio together (using avi2mpg2version 1.24 beta 13), I only get 35 or 40 minutes of the movie and no errors. it's as if bbmpeg thinks it's done everything, but it hasn't. Have tried several times.

also, sometimes I get a file that Windows Media player reports is the correct length, but about 40 mins in, the same image is frozen on the screen, like it stopped at that frame, but processed the rest of the file?

Here's the script that generated the m1v file:

#==============================================#
# -= AviSynth script by MovieStacker v1.1.1 =- #
#==============================================#

LoadPlugin("D:\install\dvd stuff\movie stacker\Filters\MPEG2Dec.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\install\dvd stuff\movie stacker\Filters\TemporalCleanerOld.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\install\dvd stuff\movie stacker\Filters\GripFit_preview.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\install\dvd stuff\movie stacker\Filters\BlockBuster.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\install\dvd stuff\movie stacker\Filters\DustV5.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\install\dvd stuff\movie stacker\Filters\LegalClip.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\install\dvd stuff\movie stacker\Filters\Sampler.dll")

Mpeg2Source("D:\dvd\platoon-kvcd\platoon.d2v")
LegalClip()
GripCrop(352, 240, overscan=2)
GripSize(resizer="BilinearResize")
Tweak(Bright=+10)
PixieDust()
TemporalCleaner()
BlockBuster(method="noise", detail_max=7, variance=0.3, seed=1)
GripBorders()
LegalClip()

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

I added the Tweak command to brighten the picture. Is that part of my problem?

Hi bagel00,

I don't think the tweak is your problem. Have you tried processing another .d2v file from another movie

yeah, others have worked fine, but i have this issue on two different films. I use DVD2AVI version 1.76.

stumbled into your other thread on latest filters and am running this one now.

Mpeg2Source("D:\dvd\platoon-kvcd\platoon.d2v")
LegalClip()
GripCrop(352, 240, overscan=2, source_anamorphic=false )
GripSize(resizer="BicubicResize")
Tweak(Bright=+10)
SpaceDust()
sharpen(1.0)
mergechroma(blur(1.5)
mergeluma(blur(1.0))
GripBorders()
LetterBox(16, 16, 16, 16)
LegalClip()

will let you know how it comes out.

BTW, for 342x240, use 1 blocks overscan. Not 2

Muxing with TMPG Tools might be worth a shot too if you haven't already tried it. It's only happened to me once, but I've had trouble muxing one file in bbmpeg...the filesize kept coming out the same (which was a few too big to fit on my cdr), even when I tried muxing only half of the movie! I have no idea why it happened, but TMPG solved the problem in the end and the resulting kvcdx3 still played fine in my player. Good luck.

hi bagel00

reading about tweak in help.html:
"bright (-255.0 to 255.0, default 0.0)
is used to change the brightness of the image.
Positive values increase the brightness.
Negative values decrease it."

i use ever twek and works very fine,
but never used the " + " for bright!
..." + " is for hue.

take a look:
"Tweak(parameter_list)

hue (-180.0 to +180.0, default 0.0)
is used to adjust the color hue of the image.
Positive values shift the image towards red.
Negative values shift it towards green.

sat (0.0 to 10.0, default 1.0)
is used to adjust the color saturation of the image.
Values above 1.0 increase the saturation.
Values below 1.0 reduce the saturation.
Use sat=0 to convert to grayscale.

bright (-255.0 to 255.0, default 0.0)
is used to change the brightness of the image.
Positive values increase the brightness.
Negative values decrease it.

cont (0.0 to 10.0, default 1.0)
is used to change the contrast of the image.
Values above 1.0 increase the contrast.
Values below 1.0 decrease the contrast."

where is your tweak.dll ???

try this in your script:
LoadPlugin("D:\install\dvd stuff\movie stacker\Filters\Tweak.dll")
...
...
Tweak(Bright=10)

will work fine.

Thanks Jorel, I have been using it wrong. Funny though, on this film it seemed to lighten things up.

As for the Tweak DLL, I have never needed to load it, I assumed it was part of Avisynth (has worked on 2.07 and on 2.0

Dazed&Confused,

Thanks for the tip. I'd like to try the TMPGenc muxing.

I see it in the MPEG Tools, Simple MultiPlex option? What parameters did you use?

Yes, Simple-Multiplex. I used "MPEG-1 Video-CD (non-standard)". Let us know if it fixes the problem for you.

Dazed&Confused,

TMPGenc muxing worked! Same D2V file as I was using in bbmpeg worked with the TMPGenc muxing. Thanks!

And, with the new script I just used of Kwag's (thanks for the script tips), I have a great looking, great sounding copy of Platoon on one 80 min. CD.

Once again, this site and it's users comes through with all the answers!

So, what are the advantages of bbmpeg over the TMPgenc muxing?

Why not just use TMPGenc?

The muxing is slightly different. The files muxed with BBMpeg are more compatible with standalone players. Also, you can mux by "start/end" time with BBMpeg, but not with TMPEG.
