TMPGEnc needs RGB input no?

perhaps adding "converttorgb" at the end of your script would help?

I have AVISynth working now. I had to switch from YV12 to YUY2 color with my capture and the Convolution3D filter.

I capture my 8mm analog home movies to DVD Half D1 with the PicVideo YUY2 format with a quality setting of 19.

I then encode it with TMPGEnc 2 pass VBR. 1000min, 2200avg, 3500max. Motion est High. The file comes out looking good but has some jaggy's.

This is where I run into problems. When I use VirtualDubMod or AVIsynth to smooth it out, the final encoded file has ghosting or jerkyness on fast moving scenes. Unviewable.

I even tried frameserving it with no filters at all and it still does it.

I guess my issue at hand is how do I filter the video without ruining it? I now have all the other issues resolved but filtering.

Thanks!

LS

PS: I tried KDVD but the standard TMPGEnc 2 Pass VBR consistantly created smaller files, so that is what I am using.

You have to do a file size prediction with any of KVCD or OKDVD template ! The CQ taht is set in the templates can't be used "blindly" whatever the source is. And when you will find the correct CQ that will give you files the same size than with 2pass, you will see how much the quality is better !

I found that when I start capturing before I hit play the field order was messed up. Can't exlain why it looked bad the first time I encoded Top first, but all filters work great.

I changed the PicVideo setting to 18, turned off the 2 lines if 240 option and the jaggies are all gone and quality is superb.

Thanks!

PS I'm using the standard Half D1 KDVD template from this site and it produces teh same file sizes as 2 pass VBR and looks good. 2VBR is a touch smaller.

Well thats MEGA risky!!!

Because IF you capture from NTSC you will defenitely get an telecined/interlaced signal where if using not fieldbased ... a blended output will be the result = shadows in movements.
A big rule is to capture filedbased (2 lines if more than 240!).
You have to find the problem of whats guilty for the jerkyness. Framebased capturing will not be the result finally

PS: In PAL its the same as you NEVER know how the input will be (interlaced/phase shifted/norm converted from 29.97 to 25.00)

Also DON'T use PicVideo at 18! Cause the quality drops exponentially if going lower than 19.
