Hi!

This is my first post on this excellent forum. I'm having trouble with encoding "Signs". Especially in the beginning of the movie where Mel & Joaquin are running through the corn fields. The picture really looks like Lego or something, in other words very blocky! Are there any filters for removing, or at least reducing such an effect? Could someone please post an example script...? Kwag or SansGrip would be nice, but on the other hand any help is appreciated!
Looking forward to hear from you guys.

Hi audioslave,

For that particular film, you should use at least spacedust+convolution3d. Download MovieStacker or SwiftAVS. Either program will create an .avs script with those filter or any other filter combination you select. Here's a thread with some samples of "Signs" that SansGrip made : http://www.kvcd.net/forum/viewtopic....gns*&start=555

Thanks for a fast reply Kwag. The script I'm currently been experimenting with is this:

LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\MPEG2DEC.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\GripFit_Preview.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\Blockbuster.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\LegalClip.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\Sampler.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\DustV5.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\TemporalCleanerOld.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\NoMoSmooth.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\FluxSmooth.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\Convolution3d")
LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\DCTFilter_YUY2.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\VobSub.dll")
LoadPlugin("D:\AviSynth\DecombLegacy.dll")

Mpeg2Source("D:\DVD Rips\Signs\VIDEO_TS\Signs.d2v")
LegalClip()
FieldDeinterlace()
GripCrop(width=704, height=576, overscan=1)
GripSize(resizer="lanczosresize")
#VobSub("G:\HDR\HDRSubs\Tonspur 1\VTS_01_0")
SpaceDust()
NoMoSmooth(30,2,6,2,6)
TemporalCleaner()
DCTFilter(1,1,1,1,1,.5,.5,0)
GripBorders()
LegalClip()
ConvertToRGB()

#trim(Round((Framecount/2)-((Framecount/10)/2)),Round((Framecount/2)+((Framecount/10)/2))).Sampler(length=24)

Any ideas or suggestions?

That is WAY too much resolution for one CD
Lower your resolution to 528x or 544x, then you'll fit that movie on one CD. That is, use KVCDx3 templates.

OK, will do !
By the way, how do I use the GripSize functions "neutral: a=0.33 b=0.33" or "precise: a=0 b=0.5"? I mean, how would these functions look in a script? Something like "GripSize(neutral: a=0.33 b=0.33)? I just can't seem to get those suckers to work... BTW Kwag, I saw those settings in your recommended thread about Sign .

I'm not sure, because I haven't tried those parameters. I just use them as default.

Great!
BTW, you don't need Lanczos for 528X resolutions. Just leave your gripsize line as GripSize()

hey audioslave...
for signs I would use a resolution of 544x together with FaeryDust() and Convolution3d(preset="movieHQ") . This gave me excellent results for that movie!
try it out!

Yes FaeryDust does some real magic without softening the picture. Anyone who is serious about the quality of their encode, this is the only way to go. It is very slow but very worth it. You will not be disappointed.

Thank guys!
I'll try out FaeryDust. Does it help on high action scenes as well? The scene in Signs I'm refering to is a couple of minutes into the movie, where Mel & Joaquin are running through the corn fields. I tried out SpaceDust but I'm not really sure... I get a very block picture .
Do I use FaeryDust in combination with Convolution3D?
