I keep getting this error message when trying to read a .avs script into TMPGEnc. I don't know why. I'm using version 1.76 of DVD2AVI and verion 2.56 or 2.54 of TMPGEnc. I get this from either version. Here's my script:

LoadPlugin("C:\unzipped\mpeg2dec_dll\MPEG2DEC.dll" )
mpeg2source("D:\Videos\pokemon5\pokemon5.d2v")
BilinearResize(704,480,8,0,704,480)
TemporalSmoother(2,2)
AddBorders(0,0,0,0)
#Trim(0,99834).FadeOut(150)
#ResampleAudio(44100) # CCE 2.5 'crashfix' for Athlons
#== If you want this 'fix' permanently, edit the INI-file:
#== Under [AVSscript] set the CCEcrashfix-option to
#== CCEcrashfix=1

Help please.

You did install the avisynth.dll. Did you register the .dll?
By clicking in the INSTALL.REG file.

Thanks for replying, Kwag. Yes, I installed the dll and ran the install. Oh, well. Maybe I'll try uninstalling and reinstall?

Oh, also, I could read the sample .avs files that came with the avisynth.zip download. I did get a message in the TMPGEnc preview window that it couldn't find the necessary mpeg2source d2v file, but that wasn't unexpected. At least I didn't get the "could not open" error dialog box. Hmmm.

i'm trying to install avisynth on my friends computer and i'm having the same problem. I have installed everything on my computer at it works fine. I have done everything the same on his computer as i have done on mine, but i am unable to load an avs script with tmpgenc. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Check where your avisynth.dll is installed.
I believe if you're using Win98 or ME, there's no system32 folder ( I think, don't remember now ). So they would go in system folder. Not sure about that though . I'm on XP.

Well, I'm about ready to give up on avisynth. I moved the .dll to my windows\system file. No change. I'm using windows 98SE. I've downloaded an avi_synth patch from doom9 as suggested in another thread. No change. I can read the 3 sample .avs files that came with the avisynth download zip file, without this error message. Is it possible that there is a compatibility problem with my .d2v file or the audio file?



Thanks to all for your suggestions.

Andy are you 100% sure that the .d2v you created was done with DVD2AVI version 1.76?
If it was 1.77.x, it won't work with AviSynth, because they changed the .d2v structure.

Thanks to Kwag and all others for your help with this problem.

Kwag - I'm 99.44% sure I'm using ver. 1.76 of dvd2avi. I'll triple check when I get home.

well, my friend and i went so far as to reformat and reinstall windows on his system in an attempt to get avisynth to work. We didn't have any luck. I installed TMPGenc, avisynth, dvd2avi....everything else i could think of and it still didn't work.

Did u try this ??? It could be the answer to all your prayers :-


http://www.doom9.org/Soft21/SupportUtils/avs_patch.zip

Unzip it and install into your tmpgenc directory. Close the program and restart.....your troubles are over

I tried the avs_patch, but it didn't seem to do much of anything and I couldn't find any explanation of what it's supposed to do.

I'm 100% sure I'm using DVD2AVI ver. 1.76 - I checked last night.

I've placed the avisynth.dll in the \windows\system directory. I'm using Windows98 SE.

MGEG2DEC.dll is in it's own directory.

I tried recreating the .d2v file from the ripped .vob files - no change.

I did, however have some trouble ripping all 4 vob files from the dvd. It was rather dirty and cleaning it allowed me to rip all 4 vobs completely. Any chance that this may be causing me trouble?

I have been able to just load the .d2v and audio files into TMPGEnc and encode the video with the KVCDx2 templates and since it's just a 4:3 full screen NTSC Pokemon video for my son, that's fine, but I'd like to get this to work for real movies.

Thanks to all for your suggestions.

Andy

If your having trouble with the AviSynth mpeg2dec.dll a quick work around is "VFAPIConv"...

Since AVIsynth uses various type of inputs, try converting your "Movie.d2v" from DVD2AVI to an "Movie_d2v-vfapi.avi" ext. using "VFAPIConv-EN.exe". This actually just takes a second and only changes the d2v extention to .avi....


If you want to try an .avs script, just load this new "Movie_d2v-vfapi.avi" in FitCD and your script will now have your source as "AviSource":

Script example:
#LoadPlugin("C:\Codec\MPEG2DEC.dll")
AviSource("C:\Movie_d2v-vfapi.avi")
BilinearResize(704,352,0,0,720,480)
#TemporalSmoother(2,2)
AddBorders(0,64,0,64)
#Trim(0,101263).FadeOut(150)

If it takes it..save and load xxx.avs into TMPGEnc...Now if you have problems in TMPGEnc, check your "Environmental setting=>VFAPI plug-in for right .dll and priority settings)this should allow you to work with .avs scripting...


You can download it Here.

Why does the color look more dull and and the contrast is off when you use vfapi to make an avi file in avisynth so tmpgenc can read it? Is there any way to correct this? I added the ConvertToYUY2() line to the avisynth script, but the color still looks off compared to when i use the d2v file in avisynth.

You don't need to create a pseudo avi file from a .avs with VFAPI for use with TMPEG. Just open the .avs script directly with TMPEG.

well, not to sound like a smart ass ....but, the whole point of this thread is that we can't get avisynth to work with the d2v file in tmpgenc....so slab suggested using vfapi converter to change the d2v file to and avi file because aparently tmpgenc will open avs scripts the with avi files as the source, but not d2v files.

Hi Smoochie,

Yep, it's just a work around for using avs scripting...I don't really see how accessing the source(vob) files whether it's by ".d2v" (ie... mpeg2source("D:\MyMovie.d2v") or a "d2v-vfapi.avi" (ie... AviSource("D:\MyMovie_d2v-vfapi.avi") makes any difference, they both accomplish the same thing in my book... Choose whatever works for your system, unless I'm missing something magical about the Mpeg2dec.dll, or the way the vfapi.avi converts a .d2v to a virtual .avi file?

Anyway, as for color and contrast saturation, I prefer checking "Output YUVdata as Basic YCbCr not CCIR601". Just a personal taste for my TV...Try some test clips....
