This post is to help show how I put each extended lord of the rings 1 & 2 movies onto 1 DVD Per Movie.

DVD Decrypter
KDVD-720x576-Full-D1-_PAL Template with kvcd notch
DVD2AVI v1.77.3 - PAL
Target 1 DVD 4.7 Gigs

MPEG-2 720x576 Full DVD
max bitrate 2500 Min bitrate 300
CQ Value 60
TMPEG 2.521.58.169
25fps

Decrypted both discs to hard drive of each movie loaded part one and two into dvd2avi to have tmpgenc encode as one continuous m2v file and also demuxed the ac3 files from both movies as one ac3 file.

audio: in dvd2avi click audio then rack number then select track 1 then again in audio select output method to demux (AC3,MPA,DTS)

Code:
##Main section and static filters ###
#
Mpeg2Source("Your_D2V_Source_Here")
#
undot()
asharp(1, 4)
GripCrop(720, 576)
GripSize(resizer="BicubicResize")
STMedianFilter(3, 3, 1, 1 )
MergeChroma(blur(1.5))
MergeLuma(blur(0.1))
#
#

##Linear Motion Adaptive Filtering ##
#
#( Portions from AviSynth's manual )
#This will apply variable temporalsoften
#and variable blur.
#Both filters are active at all times, and work inversely proportional to the
#activity, measured from current frame to next frame.

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) ")

#
#
#

GripBorders()
#LetterBox( Your_Values_Here )#Depends on situation. Use MovieStacker!

#
#
##Functions ###

function fmin( int f1, int f2){
  return ( f1<f2 )? f1 : f2
}

#
####
resulting video file size left a little room for original DD 5.1 ac3 and Audio Commentary by the cast I also added forced subtitles using SubRip 1.17.1 and having fixed subtitles only ticked in the global options. finally muxed all together using dvdmaestro.

Sorry I know no discussion here but THAT movie will harm when setting max only to 2500kbit on a 4.7gb DVD!

Also do use Gripcrop(704,576, dest_anamorphic=true) ... 720 is NOT needed as these 16px extra wont be shown on your TV set neither a Beamer

I personally have seen no loss of picture quality on my 21" 4:3 TV so it hasn't harmed my viewing.

I this was done at CQ60 the result is better that what I thought but...

Open the m2v into virtualdub mod and see :
- frame 11 : wings
- frame 343 : sam's eyes
- frame 350 : overall image
- frame 367 : overall image
- frame 628 / 631 / 632 / 635 / 637 /638 / 674 / 715...

I stop on this last sequence that is a perfect example on how the picture is degraded due to the limit you put to 2500.

Do a you KDVD with 0 as min and 4500 as max !

I saw the video clip, and the quality would be fine if seen on a regular TV up to, say a 27" screen? (Non HDTV).
Maybe a note of this should be pointed out, specially undelining the MAX bitrate, so people are aware that on larger size TVs, there will be some blocks seen on action scenes.
( Or if anyone likes to watch a movie frame-by frame, they will see them for sure )

Just a little thing : I do NOT (never) watch a movie frame by frame. I find this sutpid when people compare things usign sometime a 2x or 4x zoom

I wached your sample and the default were SO BIG that they hurt my eyes on the 15" LCD screen of my laptop

As it it nos possible to give hints based on time with KVCD (the time displayed is never correct) I had to use the frame number in vdubmod. I played the file and click on "stop" each time I saw a problem. And I gave you the corresponding frame number.

Sorry to hurt you, but your sample is bad

Note : I do all my KDVD with CCE with two movies (from 3h30 to 4h long), 2 audio streams (at 384 oe 44 and I do them as anamorphic (not letterboxed) ! I set the bitrate to 0 - 4500 (or 5000 if 3h30 long).

Note2: I never use the MA script. I really found the blur boring on your sample.

I use RemoveGrain().Deen() as filters (put that between the resize and the borders). I always target a 704*576 picture with overscan=2.
