Don't get me wrong, I love your program. The whole pulldown thing just confuses me. I'm using your app (with HCenc) to convert PAL (25fps) sources (music vids), AVI, MPG, and VOBs to 16:9 NTSC. The ability to tweak the script, set my bitrates, and trim vertically is great. Easy and quick, the results are wonderful.

Don't mean to be a pest, thanks again.

Too many compliments! I'm becoming red...

Remember: any suggestions how to improve AVStoDVD are welcome

@MysticE and everyone interested in

DGPulldown support enabled in release 1.1.0 beta.

Could you please try it and give me your opinion. DGPulldown can be selected in Settings/Encoding/FPS Upsize.

Yes you are right, it is not AVStoDVD's purpose (for now...). It would require some menu handling, and I want to upgrade a little bit AVStoDVD's capabilities in MPEG2 encoding before entering that world

Error in HCenc

**banging head against monitor**

I've run into a complete block--every time I try to us AVStoDVD with HCenc as the encoder, I'm met with "ERROR: can't open log file".

I've tried multiple different movies...I've tried CCE instead, and got a garbled mess...I even tried rolling back to no codecs and reinstalling.

I'm getting nowhere fast with this. Any ideas? Please?

**abject begging**

No panic please! Let's try to understand what's the problem.

1. Which AVStoDVD release are you using? I hope 1.0.1.
2. Which HCenc release are you using? You should use at least 0.17.
3. When do the message "ERROR: can't open log file" come out?
4. What do you mean got a garbled mess when using CCE SP?
5. Have you tried using QuEnc If yes, any problem?
6. Can you copy&paste the AVStoDVD log file?
7. Have you installed every codec needed to play the clip you want to convert?

Nah. No panic. Just frustration. Forgive my post being less than informational, but it was the last thing I did before crashing for the night...

Correct

Quote:

0.21

Quote:
3. When do the message "ERROR: can't open log file" come out?
It appears shortly after HCenc appears. In other words, HCenc pops up ready to encode, sorts out the file info, and then gives the error message.

Quote:
4. What do you mean got a garbled mess when using CCE SP?
Using one of the same files, I attempted using CCE and the resulting video looked like a scrambled cable TV channel. That was before I unregistered all codecs and reinstalled.

Quote:
5. Have you tried using QuEnc If yes, any problem?
No. Personal preference. So, that's one thought...

Quote:
6. Can you copy&paste the AVStoDVD log file?
I will include in next post...

Quote:
7. Have you installed every codec needed to play the clip you want to convert?
Yeah, even going as far as unregistering all and installing the K-Lite Codec Pack.

@boywondr16

Yes, you are right, no clues from the log file. It seems a "very standard" job, xvid+mp3 to DVD.

Let me know if QuEnc works.

Another try could be removing the codec pack (I really do not like that mess) and install ONLY the codecs you need (i.e. XviD and MP3) or the all-in-one ffdshow.

IMO ffdshow is the best choice: you get rid of all single codecs and have very good encoding/decoding quality.

QuEnc worked, which makes the whole thing even more odd...

Oh, well...adjustment and on I go. I will try again with ffshow later, and remove the KLCP.

Another try: select HCenc as default encoder, save settings and the copy&paste the txt content of AVStoDVD.ini file you find in AVStoDVD installation folder.

However, when encoding @ 6157 kbps, the encoder really do not make any difference.... so you can go with QuEnc.

AVStoDVD release 1.1.0 is available.

Change log:
  • Moved Postprocessing Options to Settings Window
  • Moved MPEG2 Advanced Options to Main Window
  • Added "Close All GOPs" among MPEG2 Advanced Options
  • Added DGPulldown support (exe included in the installer)
  • Added text subtitles multiplexing
  • Added Spline16Resize and made Lanczos4Resize as default
  • Added consistency check on source files at job startup
  • Changed default DVD sizes from 4438/8876 to 4435/8870 for subtitles support
  • Revised resizing procedure in AVS Script
  • Improved log activity saving

There are many changes, so I'm expecting some bugs too...

As usual, comments and suggestions are welcome.

OK...I've given up trying to reshape my codecs mess and did a clean install of Windows XP. Installed K-Lite Codec Pack clean.

In using QuEnc, I'm now getting errors related to the AudioDub commands.

Which kind of errors? When you play your m4v file on WMP, do you get same message?
