Cool...

I am very happy you feel BatchMux is suitable for the usage in AVStoDVD...

I planned to ask for such feature in the future, but you have been faster...

Please feel free to get in touch with me (in the public forum, the Italian one, or this one, or via PM) for any contribution or information I can provide on the matter...

In the meanwhile, may I ask to you to evaluate the possibility to keep BOTH authoring engines available for the users ?

I can easily provide good (objective) reasons for adopting MuxMan insted of Mplex/DvdAuth, however sometimes there are conditions where some glitches - more or less severe - in the input assets lead to fail the authoring job.

In these (rares... ) circumstances the availability af a valid authoring alternative can be useful, IMHO...

Cheers,
SD

I actually use CCE and 2-pass VBR when I feel the bitrate would be a little low for my liking. It results in higher quality, and since I paid for CCE why not have the option to use it?

Have you made any comparison between HCenc and CCE video quality? You will be very surprised...

Actually Muxed MPEG2 Stream is the Output choice I always use for the files I convert, but I guess I can simply rename the resultant VOB or continue to use 1.1.1.

If I may ask: what is the purpose to have one .mpg file instead of two .m2v+.ac3 files? I mean, if you play them with MPC, it will automatically append the audio; if you feed them to a DVD authoring program, you should be able to feed both video and audio.... so, why having one .mpg file only?

Clicked OK and left encoding going and DVD creation fails at the end.

Could you please post/email me the log file? Have you tried with HCenc? Same problem?

Thanks for the feedback.

Removed support to CCE SP


Why ? I use it, and on my dual-core system i get the best results/speed with it (and i've got lots of custom matrices to use with it).

@rendez2k

Thanks for the log file.
One question: have you installed on your system .NET Framework? The issue seems to come from MultiCoreEnc (wrapping QuEnc) which is written in VB NET....

@G_M_C

Yes CCE SP support ended. As said before, I would push AVStoDVD users to switch to HCenc for very high quality encoding. Give a try to HCenc, you will be surprised by speed and quality. Or stay with AVStoDVD 1.1.3.

Ok, let's move ahead, if you will.

1. What Avisynth release do you have installed?

2. Did you have same error using release 1.1.3 (with multicore enabled - remember to rename file \AVStoDVD\Plugins\MultiCoreEnc_.exe to \AVStoDVD\Plugins\MultiCoreEnc.exe)?

3. Release 1.2.0: open AVS Script Window, uncheck "Automatic Script", and delete ".Normalize()" from end of line 2. Start encoding.

Thanks for the debug.

I've got probs with 120 too. After installation it refuses to start with an (in my case german) error message (rough translation): "Run-time Error 481: Invalid picture".
Previous versions worked ok, the error appears on 3 different PCs.

Thanks in advance, Filbert

[Edit] Just found out that windows wants to replace some files in the Windows directory with the ones from the original XP-CD (after installation of AVS120). Then it works ok. So some ".dll" or other files you install there seem to be incompatible with some XP installations.

Could be 2 old VB6 ActiveX (OCX). In the next release I will add the "Overwrite only if newer" check to the installer package for those files.

In the meanwhile I have removed 1.2.0 installer package from SourceForge page. There is still the No_Install package available for testing. Very, very sorry...

Back on the topic. Some more troubleshooting

Did you try changing AVS Source method? Go to Settings/Encoding/AVS Source Filter and select "AVISource".

Same error?

Another (mayve silly) question: do you have DirectX 9 installed?

:wink:
