@nevragain

let me know if it ends properly

@bagheera1

you can find the Vertical Resize command button in 'Title Edit'/'AviSynth'. Just play a little bit with it. For further info press F1 on that window.
About the uncorrect RAM and OS detection, do not mind, it is just a label. Probably I have to update the quite old (32 bit only) system diag routine to support latest 64 bit hardware and software configurations.

Ok the result was perfect filling the disc to 98% according to imgburn. Encode looks great even on the large lcd I use. Thanks very much you saved me from having to create my own script and I learned that ffmpeg can demux from an mpeg 2 program stream.
Oh for the authoring I meant DVDauthorGUI not DVauthorGUI.

Hello, a question about the new 2.3.0. I noticed that according to GSpot, it encodes my 640x480 progressive Canon camera avi's as interlaced. I prefer them to stay progressive and simply be resized to the correct 720x480 (I'm in the US). Version 2.2.6 kept them as progressive.

Is the intent to make everything interlaced? Is there any way to force the program to work as it used to? Maybe I'm missing something here.

Thanks again for the great program, btw. It works even faster now that I've substituted the SSE4 version of HCEnc.

Here is some additional info about my previous post, that progressive video is encoded as interlaced according to GSpot. The log file states that this was supposed to be encoded as progressive:

*MAXBITRATE 9000
*BITRATE 6156
*PROFILE BEST
*ASPECT 4:3
*PROGRESSIVE
*TFF
*BIAS 60
*DC_PREC 10
*MATRIX MPEG
*AQ 1
*LUMGAIN 1
*SMP
*PRIORITY IDLE
*WAIT 2

GSpot indicates this is encoded as interlaced, TFF. (Does it make sense that progressive video would be TFF? I thought TFF/BFF was only for interlaced).

Elsewhere in the same project, I have some mini DV footage which is correctly picked up as interlaced. Log file indicates that this should be encoded as interlaced:

*MAXBITRATE 9000
*BITRATE 6156
*PROFILE BEST
*ASPECT 4:3
*INTERLACED
*BFF
*BIAS 60
*DC_PREC 10
*MATRIX MPEG
*AQ 1
*LUMGAIN 1
*SMP
*PRIORITY IDLE
*WAIT 2

GSpot agrees that this is encoded as interlaced, BFF.

So, either AVStoDVD somehow didn't encode progressive as it was supposed to, or GSPot is wrong. In the past, GSpot has always agreed with what was supposed to happen in the encodes. Suggestions?

Take one of the .VOB files that's supposed to be progressive and open it in DGIndex. Press F6. What does the 'Frame Type' field say?

But in any case, it's in HCenc, because that's what's doing the encoding (and as I use HCenc separately of AVStoDVD, I know what its configuration files look like) - the new betas allow both *PROGRESSIVE and *TFF to be set, to help compatibility with some players (at least, that's how I understand it). The .ini you posted first contains both of them, but the video should still register as progressive, or mostly progressive, in DGIndex.

@hlrsnd

if GSpot detect that stream as interlaced, it makes a mistake. Use the more reliable Mediainfo. Progressive mpeg2 streams accept the fields order flag (TFF or BFF), so do not bother. The reason why I (and hank, author of HCenc) have added that flag is exactly in qyot27 post (thanks).

See here for more details.

I have another question, It seems that the option to keep dvd compliant video is grayed out in the latest version. I would like to be able to author the mpegs from my dvd recorder without re-encoding. As far as I know these files should be dvd compliant.

@nevragain

'Keep dvd compliant video' is grayed only if the input video stream is not compatible with the DVD video standard (PAL/NTSC) you have choosen in Preferences.

If that matches, could you please post here a screenshot of main AVStoDVD form after you have added your mpeg2 clip? Or better, save the project (.a2d file) and copy&paste here the content.

Both DGIndex and MediaInfo show the files as progressive, so it looks like GSpot is confused.

Thanks for your help, MrC also.

Ok I've started with a blank project, selected NTSC as the output TV standard and added an ntsc compliant mpeg elementary stream. Despite this I'm still encountering the same issue. Does the use of DGIndex affect this issue?

@nevragain

bug found in release 2.3.0: NTSC dvd compliant stream are not kept (PAL is OK). Thanks for the report.

It seems that a 2.3.1 release is needed sooner than I was planning...

I left my PC encoding a 720p MKV tonight. I've come back to find aften had crashed? Anyone else had this? Should MKVs convert OK? I'm running Win 7 64bit if that makes a difference.

QuEnc appears to have taken over now.

Sometimes there are some problems with Wavi+Aften when processing long 5.1 AAC/DTS-ES tracks, mainly if they are secondary audio tracks. Switching to QuEnc is often a good workaround.

Hi there, I'm having problems with special characters in portuguese language using 2.3.0. For exemple: "", "" and so on had change to "?". I tryed to change language to PT but nothing happend.
I open SubtitleCreator and convert it manualy using defaut configuration and get the same result. After change "select character encode" in "formatting" menu to "Latin 1" it works perfect. How can I set AVstoDVd to work with Latin 1?

Thanks.

@whiskey

I would say to trace back your actions to understand what you did to make AVStoDVD unworkable... but I am sure you have already done it (have you? ).
Quick workaround could be to uninstall AVStoDVD, saying to remove registry entries, and then reinstall it.
A suggestion: before starting your project, use the 'Preview Clip' feat: if preview works, 99.9% the project will work too.

@trabanom

what AVStoDVD release are you using? If your subs are in srt UTF-8 format, latest release (2.3.0) correctly handles that format, preserving special chars. If you are already using 2.3.0 and/or your subs are not srt, then send me the subs file (avstodvd@gmail.com).

@trabanom

your subs file is a ANSI format srt. Right now AVStoDVD does not handle special chars from ANSI files (next release will do). Simple workaround: open your srt files with Notepad and "save as" UTF-8 format. That's all.
