I'm new to this myself, but I would have thought you should be using Kwags 'Latest Scripts' . http://www.kvcd.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3483
Works OK for me, although I just create VCD's.

Hi bashi007,

If you want a SVCD compatible MPEG-2 with better quality and longer play time ( ), then download the SKVCD and change the resolution to 480x.
Then you can put ~2 hours on one CD as SVCD with KVCD parameters, with better quality than a regular SVCD

Hi bashi,

Just use ToK for your video, and encode your audio separately
Then use BBMpeg or Mplex to mux your files.

Thanks again kwag, you are a great help. Just a last question, i noticed when i open the skvcd ntsc template the frame rate is 23.976 (which matches my film) but when the encoding starts on tmpgen it says 29.97. Is that Ok? would i get jerky playback? thanks again

Double check that on TMPEG you see "3:2 Pulldown" enabled on the main screen. You're basically encoding at 23.976fps with 3:2 pulldown flag enabled. This is the only way you can encode for SVCD, as SVCD doesn't support 23.976fps. Only 25fps (PAL) and 29.97fps (NTSC) or 23.976 with 3:2 enabled.
Take a look at this nice article http://www.inwards.com/~dbb/interlace_myths.html

Hi

when i enable the 3:2 Pulldown, it says mpeg 2 cant encode higher than 3ofps, do i need to change the original frame rate to 23.97 then enable the 3:2 pulldown flag? also is the 3:2 flag in advance menu of tmpgenc.

thanks again (i'm nearly there!)

When you change to 3:2 pulldown on the "Encode mode:", you must change the frame rate to read: "23.976 fps (Internally 29.97 fps)"

Hi bashi007,

On low bitrates, you'll get better quality with MPEG-1

352x480 will be way better that 352x240. 480x480 is slightly better than 352x480, and KVCDx3 (528x480) is better that 480x480 (If your player supports it )

Hi

Kwag, how do i change the video arrange method on tmpgenc using TOK, so my movie will come out as Full screen(keep aspect ratio) at the moment it is coming out at centre. I have encoded the film and the quality is great,480x480 svcd.

You adjust your resolution in your .avs script. ToK uses "Center" as default, which will display your output aspect correctly.

hi again
I cant encode resoultions 480x480 or 528x480, mpeg 2 with TOK, i can encode below. here is my sript

# DLL Section ##
#
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\MovieStacker\Filters\MPEG2Dec3.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\MovieStacker\Filters\GripFit_YV12.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\MovieStacker\Filters\STMedianFilter.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\MovieStacker\Filters\asharp.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\MovieStacker\Filters\unfilter.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\MovieStacker\Filters\undot.dll")
#
####

## Defined Variables and Constants ##
#
MaxTreshold = 1.50
nf = 0 # Current frame.
#
####

## Main section and static filters ###
#
AviSource("C:\Documents and Settings\Imran Bashir\My Documents\My Music\Movies\13ghosts.divx.avi")
#
undot()
Limiter()
asharp(1, 4)
GripCrop(480, 480, source_anamorphic=false)
GripSize(resizer="BicubicResize")
STMedianFilter(8, 32, 0, 0 )
MergeChroma(blur(MaxTreshold))
MergeLuma(blur(0.1))
#
#

## Linear Motion Adaptive Filtering ##
#
# ( Portions from AviSynth's manual ) - This will apply temporalsoften to
# very static scenes, and apply variable blur on moving scenes.
# We also assign a variable - and this is why a line break is inserted:

SwitchThreshold = (Width<=352) ? 4 : (Width<=480) ? 3 : 2
ScriptClip("nf = YDifferenceToNext()"+chr(13)+ "nf >= SwitchThreshold ? \
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!
Limiter()

#
#
## Functions ###

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

#
####

any ideas?

Thanks alot

What do you mean by "You can't encode"
If it means that the aspect you see is incorrect, then it's probably because you are watching on your computer with WMP. If this is the case, you must use WinDVD or PowerDVD to display your aspect correctly. Or burn the MPEG to CD-R and view it on your standalone.
