HISTORY:
28 aug 2003 version 1.2.1 build 1
- Bug fix: In the former version, if you were using CCE you had to enabled "Add ResampleAudio" in the frameserver tab. That was a but I had introduced, which in this release have been fixed.
- Enhancement: AVI Files with Dual Audio is now supported (finally).
- Bug Fix: Fixed an Aspect Ration problem when using ProCoder and CVD resizing.
- Bug Fix: Some movie queries on IMDB could fail with a Stringlist out of bounds. Fixed.
- Change: DVD2SVCD now uses two different methods to calculate the CQ value depending on if you're using CQ_VBR or just CQ.
- Bug Fix: The chapter extraction and preview would fail if the DVD had sporadic encryption (that is the key can only be found in the beginning of the DVD)
- New Feature: Added DVD2DVD support by using Scenarist 2.6 or 2.7 (woohoo finally)
- Enhancement: Validation on the Avisynth Plugins (So that they match the Avisynth Version)
- Enhancement: Different INI files is now being used all depending on what you select as Output File Type (DVD, SVCD or VCD)
- Change: I've moved all the AVISYNTH_ Scripts into a file called AVISYNTH.INI
- New Feature: Added a very unintelligent AVISYNTH Script editor in the frameserver tab. So now you can avoid using notepad. I might add som more intelligence behind it with fancy colors and more options, you never know
- New Feature: If you use a ~ in front of a line in the avisynth scripts that line will be put as the absolute last line in the script. Then you can use the monitor dll or perhaps the kronos dll. See below for a sample.
- New Feature: If you use brackets around a parameter name in the avisynth script it means it can use all kinds of characters and signs. For instance the normal accepted characters is a-z and _ and . Like this LoadPlugin(!SimpleResize.dll), but using brackets you can do this Loadplugin(![Simple&Resize.dll]) and it'll be accepted. I don't think I'm being very clear, but as ddogg says, I suck at explaining things.
- Bug fix: A combination of using NTSC2PAL and External Subtitles would result in subtitles out of sync.
- Bug fix: If a subtitle only had Command data and no Pixel data dvd2svcd would hang or exit with an Access Violation. (A movie that does this is Human Traffic PAL Nordic)
- Bug fix: The new Avisynth 2.5 had problems using DirectShowSource on a MPEG1 file, therefore the length of the VCD muxed files could fail which would result in a no go for vcdxbuilder.
- Change: When Using CCE's 1-pass-vbr dvd2svcd used to use the calculated bitrate as Max. Bitrate in CCE, but that has changed so that it's using dvd2svcd's Max. Bitrate from the bitrate tab.
- Info: If you select "Use current encoder default matrix" but uses a CCE Template then the Matrix in the Template will be used. If you don't use a Template the current encoders Default Matrix will be used.
- Bug fix: The Hyper Threading problem has been fixed. Thanks a bundle to Druid for his help (letting me use his computer, thanks)

Cheers,
Canman

WARNING !

If you want to use SVCD res but encode in MPEG1 you have to edit the file SVCD-settings and change these lines
Code:
UseMPEG1=0
UseMPEG2=1
to this :
Code:
UseMPEG1=1
UseMPEG2=0
The same way, if you use to encode in MPEG2 but want to use VCD res for a long movie, you must modify the file VCD-settings (and select "VCD output" in misc tab)

All these modifications will lead to a LOT of problems

Can you also post the KVCD-Notch Matrice and how to put that into DVD2SVCD. That seems to be the choice of Matrice right now.

You can find the Notch-Matix in the KVCD specification on the left panel of the homepage of KVCD.net

Indeed, on my PC, I already have the notch matrix because I installed the 1.2.1 uppon my previous installation of 1.2.0b3. So I did not need to do the operation.

But normally you have to go to the "Matrix" tab, uncheck "use encoder default", select "KVCD" into the presets (it is the last choice) then enter the correct values into the matrix if they aren't correct and that will be ok (it will be saved automatically when you close DVD2SVCD).

Yes, you're right. That is the changlog of this version (not yet delivered officialy it seems) :

Code:
xx xxx 2003 version 1.2.1 build 2 (Released soon I think)
- Bug fix:      DTS audio for dvd2dvd didn't work when DTS was selected as the second audio track
- Change:       Some users was displeased that I had removed SVCD resolution (480*480/576) for VCD creation.
- Bug fix:      Using External subtitles as Permanent subs what screw up the subtitles in the movie.

Do we have to put the lbr.ini into dvd2svcd too, I cant remember since my comp crashed I never got around to download it again. I have already installed the matrix into it and the current scripts that I seen you had posted.

The only difference between all the template are in the min/max bitrate used :

ulbr.ini : MIN 64 - MAX 900
lbr.ini : MIN 150 - MAX 1150
kvcd.ini : MIN 300 - MAX 2300

If you have already modified the matrix and the script used, all you have to do to make a "lbr" encode is to change the values of birate in "bitrate" tab of D2S.

No need to have a special ini just for that...

The former version used 1% and was not so bad in prediction. I think that 2% is far enought.
