Hi people,
here´s my problem:
i´ve been tryin` to convert some great quality quicktime files to kvcd using avisynth 2.53 without any success!
My question is : is it possible to load quicktime files with avisynth 2.53 scripts or avisynth 2.0x is needed?
It keeps sayin`that "there´s function called LoadVFAPIPlugin" or something like that, related to the first line of the script!
By the way I tried with the following script:



LoadVFAPIPlugin("C:\Program Files\TMPGEnc\QTReader.vfp", "QTReader")

QTReader("C:\Video\Spiderman 2_teaser_640.mov")
ConvertToYUY2()
FlipVertical()
SelectEvery(24,1) #Use (25,1) for NTSC.#
LegalClip()
GripCrop(528, 480, overscan=2, source_anamorphic=false)
GripSize(resizer="BicubicResize")
STMedianFilter(10, 50, 0, 0, 10, 50)
UnFilter(50, 50)
TemporalSmoother(1, 2)
MergeChroma(blur(1.5)
MergeLuma(blur(0.3))
GripBorders()
LegalClip()



So, what do you say?

Here's the post where its explained:
http://www.kvcd.net/forum/viewtopic....highlight=3vix

Where did you grab that command selectevery???
That makes only sense in case of reverse different pulldowns, removing/duplicating frames/fields etc!
In the post above you see the command that the FPS will only be convertet by avisynth direct command to convert/change the fps.

Whats that kind of Trailer?? A real NTSC 23.976 or telecined 29.97 or a PAL 25.000 ?? (Open that mov using Quicktime and watch the movie information.

If nothing works... resafe that mov using Quicktime to a pc compatible Avi-Codec like HuffYUV

The command is included in avs2.53. Check that it is this version that is currently running on your PC with a script containing only the line "Version()".

Very often the avisynth version is changed without notice by lots of tools.

Hi guys, thanx for the reply!

To incredible:

I just borrowed the entire script, thought it would be ok!

Whats that kind of Trailer?? A real NTSC 23.976 or telecined 29.97 or a PAL 25.000 ?? (Open that mov using Quicktime and watch the movie information.

I can`t get the information concerning the fps of the movie!
When i open the movie information it just shows the height and width of the file!

If nothing works... resafe that mov using Quicktime to a pc compatible Avi-Codec like HuffYUV

But in doing that I`ll be losing some quality, right?

To Dialhot:

The command is included in avs2.53. Check that it is this version that is currently running on your PC with a script containing only the line "Version()".

Ok! Thanx, I`ll do it!

Not with huffyuy that is in the codec familly called "lossless". That actually means that you lose nothing by using it

Thanx for the tips guys,
I`ve made a test this morning using the huffyuv codec and it worked just great!
I used TMPGenc function Output to AVI file to encode and i wanna ask you if you do recommend that or do you advise some other AVI encoder?

I encoded to kvcd using the KVCDx3-MPEG-1-NTSCFilm template, CQ 82, Max. Bitrate 4500, Min. 300 and the result was a rather large file, 66 mb for a file 3:38 minutes long!

The result was a very good, bright and sharpen picture on my dvd player but it still shows a little artifacts and blocks around the darker areas!

Sorry, maybe I do misunderstand, but as you safe the avi VIA TmpgEnc this to me sounds as TmpgEnc already opens the mov/avs correctly????
And IMHO what TmpgEnc can safe as Avi it also can encode that directly to mepg or not?? (confirm question to Phil inside).

I always do that like this.

You should use my script for avi->kvcd and include in it the second "blockbuster" line taht is currently commented out.

Hi incredible?
No, TMPGenc can not open the AVS script but it opens the mov file no problems!
As I previously posted the problem is related with the LoadVFAPlugin line!

Thanx

For sure it can but the purpose here isn't to encode the mov. The purpose is to use an avs script to process that mov

YEP! Right, as in here it seems the QTreader works best in combination with TmpgEnc (which should be his puropse)!

Hi Dialhot,
I`ve made a new test here using your optimal script for avi to kvcd version 1 (which is supposed to be the best) and the result has improved a little! The annoying blocks almost fully disappeared!

Well I have a source which is 640x360 and I wanna encode it to kvcd using the same resolution, is that possible?
Would gripfit allow me to do that? Would you recommend it or not?

Thanx

?????

Why do you think I did other 3 version if the V1 was the best ?
For sure the "best" one is the V4 !

It won't and it is not recommended !
