I'm using ToK and TMPGEnc to encode a VHS movie to VCD format. All is going fine, except that I'm getting this appearing in the TMPGEnc preview screen:

Sampler: Samples must be >=2.

This message pops up with certain projects, but not with others. My script runs as follows:

x="f:\Radio Flyer VCD on F\4_4c.avi"

txt_dir="c:\Documents and Settings\Kevin\Desktop\MovieStacker\"

LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"MPEG2Dec.dll")
LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"GripFit_preview.dll")
LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"DustV5.dll")
LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"LegalClip.dll")
LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"BlockBuster.dll")
LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"fluxsmooth.dll")
LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"sampler.dll")
LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"vobsub.dll")
LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"decombLegacy.dll")
LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"temporalcleanerold.dll")
LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"convolution3d.dll")
LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"dctfilter_YUY2.dll")
LoadPlugin(txt_dir+"NoMoSmooth.dll")

AVISource(x)
LegalClip()
AssumeFPS(29.97)
BilinearResize(352, 240, 0, 0, 352, 480)
mergechroma(blur(0.79))
mergeluma(blur(0.1))
FaeryDust()
FluxSmooth(7,7)
Blockbuster(method="noise", variance=.4, seed=1)
NoMoSmooth(40,1,6,1,3,false)
Convolution3d(preset="movieHQ")
DctFilter(1,1,1,1,1,1,.5,0)
LegalClip()

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

If u are using Sampler() then Last line in your script must be =>

Sampler()

Thanks. I think I tried that already, but I'll give it another shot and see what happens.

I tried (again) putting sampler() at the end of my script, but the error message still appears. When TMPGEnc starts running, it tries to run a few samples, but only runs the final larger sample without an error message (I hope that makes sense to anyone reading this). This is getting frustrating because I'm trying to encode segmented AVIs captured from VHS videotape, and I don't know how (if it can even be done) to use manual file size prediction with segmented files.

If you're using ToK, you can't put sampler at the end of your script.
Tok does file prediction internally and it will put sampler on it's own script. If you put sampler at the end of your script, you will get that error

But I'm getting the error whether or not I use sampler() in my script.

Then the problem is in your source. Have you tried processing a .d2v file or another .avi file

No, but I'm starting to suspect the same thing. Thanks for the advice; I'll give it a try.
