I am trying to convert a movie which has been encoded in 3ivx format with the extension .mov. Anyone know a way to handle this with avisynth?

I think there is an error somewhere : 3ivx is an avi codec similar to divx and xvid (2 codecs than it can handle anyway).
I don't think 3ivx produces Quicktime compatible streams.

Btw you can use directshowsource I think.

Yep, that codec also is used in case of Quicktime 3ivx.
That codec for quicktime also is offered oficially, but most .mov files containing a stream done by a 3ivx are just a conversion mostly don by avi2mov horrible!
I remember very well the time when I did all my things in the new OSx and that tool was very buggy.

There's also a tool called mov2avi :

But here's the avisynth way:

LoadVFAPIPlugin("C:\The Path to\qtreader.vfp","QTReader")
ChangeFPS(the FPS of the mov in here) 
QTreader you find here (in the page below.. the last download)

The link of avisynth.org:

BUT 3vix to qtreader or mov2avi could be seen as a codec within a strange fileformat, so this could be still tricky.
