Hi all...

something is REALLY going wrong here... I don't know what happened, because I didn't change any settings at all... All my encodes right now produce far worse quality than I'm used to... even when I encode with a very high bitrate... I see dancing blocks in the backgrounds, and they are FAR bigger than they used to be... Also there are artifacts around objects. In fact those clips look just like when I first started with KVCD... That was in the very beginning... Could It be something with Dust? How can I check if my resolution is a multiple of 8? Any other ideas? this is really driving me mad! here's the code:

Code:
LoadPlugin("C:\Programme\DVD2SVCD\MPEG2DEC\MPEG2DEC.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\MPEG-Tools\FitCD\dustv5.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\MPEG-Tools\FitCD\legalclip.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\MPEG-Tools\FitCD\sampler.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\MPEG-Tools\FitCD\gripfit_preview.dll")
LoadPlugin("E:\MPEG-Tools\FitCD\convolution3d.dll")


Mpeg2Source("D:\A Beautiful Mind\beautifulmind.d2v")

LegalClip()

GripCrop( 544, 576, overscan=2 )

GripSize()

FaeryDust()
Convolution3d(preset="movieHQ")

Gripborders()

LegalClip()

Sampler(length=24)
## MPEG size = ((Total frames/MovieTimeInMinutes)/24) * MPEG sample file size ##
I also tried using SpaceDust and TemporalCleaner, but no change... I'm not sure about this, but I think that the filesize of my samples also increased drastically for a given CQ since my last encode... I might be getting paranoid though...
well any help is much appreciated

Now I noticed something that might be of interest... In the preview window of TMPGEnc, I also see those big blocks in the background... and there seem to be weird video-bugs too... I don't know how to describe this, but it seems that in some areas the color has changed to completely black where it shouldn't be black... this is making me really mad...

Edit: Forget the video-bug I was talking about... that was caused by having DVD2AVI activated in the background... when I closed that the video bug thing was gone... still I see those huge blocks in the preview window... I can't believe that this is on the DVD... there must be something weird going on here...

Ok, I've been trying to fix this all day now... I don't know anything else to try... If somebody could tell me where I can upload a sample, so that you guys can see what my problem is, i would be very thankful...

I'm really frustrated right now, and still it might be that there's an easy solution for this...

yes I downloaded the newest version although I didn't change it...
might be that "A Beautiful Mind" is just a VERY bad authored DVD... but the same thing happened to me when I encoded "Murder By Numbers" just yesterday... I doN't know... I'll probably go and drink a beer about it... any more help is much appreciated...
