Hi

Ive backed up Spiderman onto my PC and was trying to cut it to VCD. I have tried the KVCD2 templates both LBR, VCD and 0.5DVD via the following Avisynth script. The reults look really poor (CQ_VBR set at 25) and I was wondering why??

Cheers

mike




LoadPlugin("C:\Documents and Settings\Mike\Desktop\dvd\MPEG2DEC.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Documents and Settings\Mike\Desktop\dvd\sampler.dll")

Mpeg2Source("D:\video\spider\spider.d2v")
BicubicResize(336,224,0,0.6,36,0,648,576)
AddBorders(8,32,8,32)

Sampler(length=24)
## MPEG size = ((Total frames/MovieTimeInMinutes)/24) * MPEG sample file size ##LoadPlugin("C:\Documents and Settings\Mike\Desktop\dvd\MPEG2DEC.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Documents and Settings\Mike\Desktop\dvd\sampler.dll")

Mpeg2Source("D:\video\spider\spider.d2v")
BicubicResize(336,224,0,0.6,36,0,648,576)

Hi Mike,

Something is wrong with your source . Is that from an .AVI file
Have you tried another version of mpeg2dec.DLL

I think you're right (thought I was going mad!). I used SmartRipper and the DVD2AVI to extract the file. When I encode directly into TMPGEnc it gives great resutls, so it must be something to do with the avs script, probably mpeg2dec.dll

Where would you recommend to download??

Posting a screenshot is an excellent way to isolate a problem like that one- a picture is worth a thousand words. Kwag, is that called solarization? I'm still trying to figure out what is meant by this

thnx,
ren

Yep, that's sort of solarization. It looks to me like 16-bit colour, which would imply an evil Microsoft codec has taken over decoding of that colourspace. Use the Avisynth Reader with TMPGEnc (see the "Recommended Settings" sticky in the TMPGEnc forum for a link and instructions).

I also think that upping a Screenshot is the best way to describe a problem... the thing is just that I find it hard to get free webspace somewhere, which allows you to upload pics or sample clips without an HP...

Having done a little more digging around it would appear that I needed to at

ConvertToRGB()

to the AVS script. If I remember this *used* to be added by FitCD (but was commented) but is no longer added. Anyway seems to have solved the problem.
