Hi

Ive been trying to load an AVI from a DV camera using a avs script. However the AVISource doesnt recognise my AVI. DirectShowSource loads it, but if I try to use the different Grip functions any operations are so slow as to be useless (this, I am told, is what happens!).

Obviously the next step would be to get MovieStacker to tell me the appropriate resizing/border parameters however it doesnt recognise my AVI (sadly only recognises it as "1:1 VGA"). I did try using the Avisynth resizing/border parameters that it gave me (as well as ones for VCD) but they were wrong (gave me a small part fo the top left corner).

Is there another easy way of working them out or getting Movie Stacker to give me the correct parameters???

Thanks

mike

You should install avs2.52 with ffvfw, convert your avs script into an avi with this last tool and open the resulting avi with moviestacker : I think things will be better.

What exactly does ffvfw do?? Any documentation is sadly very lacking! However I did create my fake AVI and MovieStacker appears to have picked up the correct resolution and given me the right resizing parameters (although, oddly, the border parameters seem to be unnecessary). Encoded successfully through TMPEGEnc and it plays great!

Cheers

mik

It "converts" an avs script in a false avi that can be handle by any tool abble to read avi, but not avs script directly. Moviestacker for instance.

Phil,

can i trust that this "false avi" is the reason that my samples
are blocking with "ugly dark green"

when i open my .avs script in vdubmod, in avi information i got:
FourCC code: FourCC [YV12]
Unknown
decompressor: ffvfw MPEG-4 Codec

It's possible : this tool is still in development, and so, not stable.

But I don't undestand why you have ffvfw that is used as decompressor when you read avs. I don't have this !

Do you use "makeavi.exe", the binary delivered with ffvfw on your avs or not ?

hey Phil,

i think that we are finding my problems....see:
if i install avisynth252 without ffvfw,my scripts don't open in
ToK or vdubmod
i only can use ToK if i install avisynth252 with ffvfw
what codec i miss....or better,what codec i don't have in my system

"makeavi.exe"
i don't know it!

BAck to my first post of this thread : ffdshow !

It's done by the same team as ffvfw in fact.

Because you never use tools that can't handle avs directly

first:
my source is .d2v (via new script for 252)..means:
mpeg2source("D:\LALUNA\TEST\DVD2AVI.D2V")

second:
after read your post in the first time i install the last ffdshow
but don't know how i select when i open the script in vdub or ToK.

third:
makeavi,exe ...."you never use tools that can't handle avs directly"
ok Phil but don't know what to do.

i'm feeling that here is my problem from months,
after your explanations i can see that my encodes is going wrong
caused for the codecs.....
i don't encode avis,only vobs using dvd2avi projects!

waiting more advices and recomendations from you Phil

what i do now?

ps;
this all means:
help, i'm really lost and confuzed,
if i uninstall ffvfw nothing works.
