Allright folks, get back on your seats.

I'm talking about the trailer for the second LOTR movie.

It's in .mov format and plays in a frame (in a bigger picture).
I can open the movie with TMPGEnc without any problems, and I can see the movie in clip frame settings etc.

Problem is: the encoded file only shows a black screen.

I will waste some effort on this, but if anybody has got any hints on how to solve that problem I'd be grateful.

Some details:
- the movie stream itself is 24fps, but the whole frame runs at 60fps (at least TMPGEnc says so)
- there are quite a lot of settings in the QuickTime player. Looks like the .mov file is actually composed of several streams.
- my TV-Out only shows the actual trailer, no frame.

Everyone is invited.

Thanks,
b00n.

Load your .mov first. THEN load your template. Then encode.
In that order.
Don't load your source after you load the template.

Ah. You are referring to the 60fps, right?

I did set the fps down to 23,x again after loading the source .mov.

That was not the problem.


Thanks anyways,

Ok. I thought that's what it was. Then maybe your source is RGB? Try and process it through an .avs script, and add this line to your script:
ConvertToYUY2()
After the line that loads the source.

Uhmm...

How do I open a .mov file with AviSynth ?
DirectShowSource didn't work.

Seems a filter is missing...

Or can you open it with Vdub and frameserve to TMPEG?

Problem solved.

I activated DirectShowFilter in TMPGEnc in addition to Quicktime Reader and it worked.

This totally eludes me, but well...
