Great, Incredible!

That's exactly what I needed, a simple set of rules. I do have a basic understanding of anamorp usage; it was mainly the TMPGEnc screens that had me confused. Your post should prove valuable to other user's with limited skills (like me!). Now I have a simple TMPGEnc settings guide to follow!

Thanks as always, all you guys.

Thank God we only have 4:3 and 16:9 to deal with
Imagine if we had many many aspect ratios

Yeah. I live in fear that another one will arise. At least, with all the help here, I've been able to make some very good encodes and establish some guidelines for the stuff I do. I like all the posts dealing with the indepth analysis of everything, but the bottom line for me is getting quality output.

Thank you guys for all the 4:3, 16:9, amorph, etc. aid. Maybe I'll understand enough to be truly dangerous soon.

When making an anamorphic DVD from a 16:9 or letterbox DVD, should I leave this as 16:9?
Also this speaks for itself. 90% of the DVDs are in an anamorph state, so if you do keep the anamorph state 16:9 as input and 16:9 as output.
And in case of Avisynth this means NO resizing and setting in TmpgEnc the output to 16:9. And in case of bad mastered 4:3 Blockbuster DVDs handle the mpeg streams as you do it in case of your 4:3 captures.
Sorry guys but I'm a bit slower than anyone else in this forum.
I'm only doing miniKDVDs and KDVDs at this moment.
All the movies I own are in PAL DVD source, and I would imagine them
as in anamorphic state since they are 16:9 (2.35:1).
Assuming I correctly understood everything you guys said, I should tell tmpgenc
that the source for these are "16:9 625 lines PAL" and I should set the encoded
stream aspect ratio to 16:9 Display, right
Now, what about telling avisynth to do no resizing, as incredible said?
Or did I missed something
Also could you comment on the use of overscan in gripcrop?
When should we use 0,1,2 or 3?
Here's my script:

#Load Plugins#

asharp(1, 4)
GripCrop(704,576, overscan=2)
STMedianFilter(3, 3, 1, 1 )

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) ")


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