1) ¿Filter combo option in MEncoder-Me 0.22 is DVD if the souce es a DVD? ¿What means Filter combo?

2) MPlayer.exe and MEncoder.exe shoud be in the same directory than MEncoderme.exe?

I have this log when I try a encode from a .VOB:

Code:
Mencoder.exe -include temp.conf -lavcopts vbitrate=697:vpass=1 "D:\FINDING_NEMO\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_1.VOB" -o "D:\FINDING_NEMO\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_1.mpv" MEncoder dev-CVS-040423-00:19-3.3.1 (C) 2000-2004 MPlayer Team

The filter settings that vmesquita choose for that source. Like different scripts that we use, depending is source is AVI, DVD, Capture, etc.

Try another compiled version of Mencoder.

Thanks Kwag. I'm trying with MEncoder.exe (17/04/2004) of MEncoder-Me 0.2 previous version and now the encoding is started.

Also I can't use preview option with current version of MEncoder-Me 0.22.

Thanks for all.

You need a mplayer executable.

I have mplayer.exe (included in MEncoderme 0.22) in the same directory...

Another question:

When I use makeAvis.exe with MA script I see the next error:

Code:
GripCop. Could not save target frame size as variables.
MakeAvis Avisynth script, line 19

And this is my script:

Code:
## DLL Section ## 
# 
LoadPlugin("d:\Filters25\MPEG2Dec3dg.dll") 
LoadPlugin("d:\Filters25\GripFit_YV12.dll") 
#LoadPlugin("d:\Filters25\STMedianFilter.dll") 
LoadPlugin("d:\Filters25\asharp.dll") 
LoadPlugin("d:\Filters25\unfilter.dll") 
LoadPlugin("d:\Filters25\undot.dll") 
# 
#### 

## Main section and static filters ### 
#

GripSize(resizer="BicubicResize") 
#STMedianFilter(3, 3, 1, 1 )

ScriptClip(" nf = YDifferenceToNext()" +chr(13)+ "unfilter( -(fmin(round(nf)*2, 100)), -(fmin(round(nf)*2, 100)) ).TemporalSoften( fmin( round(2/nf), 6), round(1/nf) , round(3/nf) , 1, 1)  ")

Also I did see that GripFit in AVS's cant be handled by Makeavis (ffvfw.dll).

a) Try the ffdshow version of Makeavis (latest)

b) Use FitCD for resizing (Moviestacker download is stopped due that GPL discussion)

As I know, actually Moviestacker can to be downloaded, requesting it for PM to Kwag.

No, MovieStacker is not available at this moment, until muaddib's final decision.
However, if you already have it, there's no reason why you can't use it.

But this is still the MencodeMe thread, and the GUI is useful for newbies at current stage. This is true for many members of the Portuguese Forum.

I can make a .mpv file with MEncoder-Me 0.22, but with Mencoder.exe include with MencoderMe 0.2, not with Mencoder.exe included in the last version.

I can't preview with none of the two versions.

I will try now with source makeAvis. I will obtain greater quality than with the internal filters of MEncoder?

Thanks.

I am into this KVCD madness for a few months now. I've started with tmpgenc (using about 5-6 programs for the process) and switched to DIKO 2 months ago (I was 2 tired after months of manual processing). Now I am trying this famous Mencoder.
I must say the result is the best yet! Never had a crush or any problem whatsoever. I just don't get why people are using avisynth scripts? As I understood scripting is already implemented using ffvfw builtin scripts?

P.S. I am just encoding 704x576 at 25-30 fps (whooosh)

There are still some advantages, when using AviSynth. For example, the Motion Adaptive part of our script, uses some unique functions that are only available in AviSynth. I'm sure a similar functionality will be implemented in ffmpeg/mencoder's code in the near future.
And if you're encoding at 25-30 fps on Windows, you should try it on FreeBSD, where I'm getting reports of ~+6FPS over Windows, on average

a) If going in mencoder using an AVI I thought the internal decompressing engine will be used instead of ffvfw.

b) If going in mencoder using VOB _ also the internal decompressing engine does its job

c) So if we use ffvfw.dll then cause of makeavis import into mencoder and if this happens we already can do our filtering in avisynth.

So if I understood him right, the approach should better in to make mencoders internal filters working .... so some peoples (noobs) do not need avisynth. (and thats saying me )

What are the real advantages when using Motion Adaptive part in the script?


Thanks.

Maurus,
the MA part filters linearly, related to the stimated motion of the scene. At low motion, it applies mainly temporal filtering and light unfilter (spatial); at high motion it unfilters more (sometimes too much, but it can be adjust if it doen't fit oyur taste), because in high action you won't notice the blurring... and this is useful to obtain better compression. But anyone else can explain this better...
I hope we will be able to use it inside mencoder soon.

Hi all:
I have not posted for some time, but I've been following your advances (good job vmesquita ). Now I see lots of us around here , it's good to see you all. I'm veeery busy now, and things are now in a phase I just can help making tests (well, I just can help testing in any phase ). Now it's time for programmers and developers... and testers.
I dropped my tests with StarWars II without success to my taste. But I've learnt a lot with those tests.
Now I'm trying to encode an old capture (from my military service period, a looong time ago) that I encoded to mpeg2 with no filter and looks really bad, too high contrast, noisy,... and I'm feeding "this" to mencoder, trying to make a KSVCD...
My problem is in the filtering, as I'm using default DVD template from vmesquita, adapted in this way:
Code:
-vf yuvcsp,crop=688:560:18:2,scale=336:272:0:0:60,il=d,unsharp=l3x3:0.6,hqdn3d=3:6:8,
unsharp=l3x3:-0.7:c3x3:-1.5,noise=2uh,il=i,expand=352:288:-1:-1,hue=0.0:0.5
As you see I keep interlaced. And don't take too seriously the hue settings, I'm still tweaking them.
And this is my question: what filters/settings would you advise (mencoder ones)?, and how can adjust hue, saturation, maybe levels,...?. Do I use VirtualDub?, are VirtualDub settings to be loaded directly in mencoder?
Do we open a mencoder filtering thread?.

Hi:
@VMesquita:

Suggestions:
1 - It would be interesting that when opening source file dialog, it shows all supported files at once. Extensions selection drop-down box is not usefull, I think.
2 - It would be interesting also, a Save as default settings button.
3 - Could you put a Filtering Combo for mpeg1 and mpeg2 sources (like C(X)(S)VCD to K(S)VCD)

Bugs:
MencodeMe set GOP size (keyint) from settings in Target drop-down selection box. Keyint values always are or 15 (KDVD) or 24 (K(S)VCD), no matter what is selected in Framerate drop-down selection box. Let's remember that 15 is for PAL KDVD, 24 is for NTSC K(S)VCD. MencodeMe es missing values of 18 for NTSC KDVD and 25 for PAL K(S)VCD.
It would be better an exclusive drop-down selection box for this setting.

I suppose you could add a Advanced button so that the guys that arent newbies could tweak other various setting to make their conversions even better.

just a thought

For newbies like me this GUI is perfect and easy to use so thanks vmesquita.
