Try to add "ConvertToRGB24()" at the end of your script that can correct the problem.

Can you check the VFAPI setting in tmpgenc (environemental settings) to see if you have ReadAvs to the higher priority (let say 3), all others to 0 and Directshow to -1 ?

Thank you for the suggestions, I tried both and none of them worked with this avi, it is still just a gren screen when encoding. I need to mention that when I try to encode the avi with tmpegenc as the video source and not my script, it looks fine. But I need to use this script for the filters any thoughts?

1/ Can you post your script ? I would like to check something.
2/ Can you also open the avs script directly under wmp, to see if the green screen is still there (and so, the problem is not related to tmpgenc).

I have to go to sleep so I give you suggestion taht you can try :

1/ use directshowsource insteed of avisource (filesize prediction will be a pain in the ass with this but just try it to see if green screen is still there)

2/ revert to divx 4.01 and try again. Or perhaps give a chance to Divx 5.1 that just came out.

here is my script, I opened it in WMP and I still have the green screen, I can here the sound but just a green screen. I had to add"ConvertToYUY2()" to the script so that TOK would run it, I have to do this with almost all of my Divx-Xvid files and it works with no problems.


#================================================= =====#
# -= AviSynth script by MovieStacker v2.0.0 (beta3) =- #
#================================================= =====#

LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\MovieStacker\Filters\MPEG2Dec.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\MovieStacker\Filters\GripFit_preview.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\MovieStacker\Filters\UnFilter.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\MovieStacker\Filters\LegalClip.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\MovieStacker\Filters\Sampler.dll")

AviSource("F:\My Shared Folder\SpiderMan\SpiderMan.avi")ConvertToYUY2()
LegalClip()
UnFilter(50, 50)
GripCrop(480, 480, overscan=3, source_anamorphic=false)
GripSize(resizer="BicubicResize")
TemporalSmoother(1, 2)
MergeChroma(blur(1.5)
MergeLuma(blur(0.25))
GripBorders()
LegalClip()

That is not normal ! I do all my Divx/Xvid in YV12 and never have to add a nyconvert (YUY2 or RGB). You must remove all previous version of Divx codec and use the last one only, as for the Xvid codec.
(I check on my PC I have 5.0.5 setted to minimum quality, film effect off, and all boxes checked in "quality settings" tab).


But, for your problem of green screen, thats a different deal. I already saw that this problem occurs with divx 5.05 and vanishes when revert to 4.01. Try that. Version 5.05 is perhaps buggy.

Note: nothing wrong in you script.

Good night.
