This is a thumbnail which is far too small. For me it is completely unreadable...

This is weird...

I use my good old Opera 12 browser, and this is how it looks here:

@ dr_ml422

It looks like your AviSynth script for the project cannot be opened. The file is located in your local Windows temp folder.

Do you have enough free space on your Windows system drive?

Have you tried to run AVStoDVD as an administrator?

You could try to move your A2D temp folder to a different drive and / or partition. This is done under "Preferences -> Paths".

And the last thing I can think of is to use a different method for extracting the audio, You are using the default "Wavi + Aften" method. Try to change it to "FFmpeg(AviSynth)".


For debugging it would be helpful if you could open your temp folder right after the crash message appears. Then copy the AVS file to a different folder, open it with NotePad and post the content here,


Good luck
manolito


//EDIT//
Don't forget to try to disable your antivirus software temporarily...
And I almost forgot:
Please post your AVStoDVD log file here.

This never happened before and when I close the command window with the error and proceed with FFMPeg etc... as suggested everything comes out fine. Couldn't find any logs. Probably deleted. I should uncheck that preference to delete them in the main window. I don't know anything about Aften etc... so I just left defaults asis. Is the FFMPeg option better? It says it'll automatically switch to FFMPeg if Temp Wav bigger than 4GB. There's more than enough space as it's my C drive and only my apps and regular associated stuff is there. Maybe it's the type of file being processed, or that I had 2 other encoding jobs happening at the same time? Let me run a solo job and keep the logs. They're in the AVSDVD output folder correct? Thanks.

Log file for manolito.

Here goes. I couldn't edit yet so I had to reply in another message. Is DVDStyler 64 bit just as good as 32bit? I'm needing a backup app for my DVDs. Thanks.

Thanks for posting your log...

I cannot see any problems in your AVS2DVD setup, so I can only make an educated guess. The path+filename string in your Wavi commandline is technically correct, but it is awfully long. In theory the command processor can handle a much longer parameter string, but I do not know if Wavi and/or Aften can handle such a long parameter string.

I suppose that Wavi and Aften parse the commandline and put it into a string variable. And this string variable might be limited in length. My recommendation is to put your source file into a folder with a short name plus rename the file itself to a short name. If this works then my suspicion is correct.

And the other option would be to use "FFmpeg (AviSynth)" instead of "Wavi + Aften" as your audio conversion method. According to your log file FFmpeg has no problems with long parameter strings, and at least for current FFmpeg versions the AC3 encoding quality in FFmpeg is even better than in Aften.


Cheers

Thank you manolito!

Thanks. I kinda thought the title name had something to do with it as sometimes it would even tell me it couldn't recognize the file. Then I would load it directly in with the Add+ button and it would take. It's been making some really nice outputs and so I need it in my arsenal. Not too many out there except DVDStyler, ConvertXToDVD, and w/e DVDFab has.

It worked! I also started it with Admin Rights. I used FFmpeg-AviSynth for the audio. Thanks.

Now I found a new bug if at all. I can't edit the titles when more than one title is present in a project. It will come up with all the title's names plus the edited name in the Menu after hitting the Menu Wizard. Is there anything I'm missing here?

Ok so now everything went back to normal after restting the menu. One thing is that if you hit save preferences and have the name of your previous DVD in the Label instead of DVD, it will bring that back again unless you change it again. So it's better to just leave it as DVD because one could easily miss that and then have to do it over.

I have a question. What can I do in preferences etc... so that on startup or just after, I don't get that "I couldn't find so and so drive" popup? I had a burner I took out and it was still searching for it apperently. Do I have to go into settings somewhere and change something? Thanks.

Three possible solutions I can think of...

Under AVStoDVD preferences -> Authoring/Burning you can try to remove the offending burner from the dropdown list and save the preferences as default.

Or open RegEdit and go to HKCU/Software/AVStoDVD. There is a value "DVDBurningDrive" in the right pane, you can doubleclick it and delete the burner string.

If all this does not work then there is a nifty little tool by Uwe Sieber called DriveCleanup.
https://www.uwe-sieber.de/files/drivecleanup.zip
This tool will remove all non present drives from the device tree of device manager.

Good luck
manolito

Thanks Manolito, everything is working fine now, especially after switching to FFmpeg for the Audio encoding. The DVDs are really nice, and I noticed that AVStoDVD preserves menu functionality when using the PC to watch it. I couldn't get that with ConvertXToDVD. I'm experimenting with the subtitle output as the regular Tahoma kinda gives a shadow effect. I switched to Bold and will see soon if it looks clearer.

You are not the first user with this problem. A2D uses the ancient Quartz.dll for the preview, but I never found something that MS has stopped supporting this method under Win10. I am on Win7-64, and I have no problem with the A2D preview. If there is no way to make the preview work, you know that you can specify a different software player for the preview under preferences? Just no editing...

Here is something you could try:
The batch file in the linked archive restores a couple of AviSynth Registry entries which get altered by installing LAV filters. It may or may not help, but it sure does not do any damage.
https://www.sendspace.com/file/l9zgsz

The other file in the archive is VCF2AVS which you need if you want to use the VDub method to edit your source files.


There's only one single A2D developer, and this is MrC. Unfortunately he does only have very limited time lately to work on AVStoDVD, I try to help out with user support as much as I can, but of course my contributions are limited - I am just an informed user, not a developer.

Unfortunately no update to this issue...

I reuploaded my archive, will be available for 30 days:
https://www.sendspace.com/file/vqeuv2

For the jagged edges this could have several reasons. Aliasing caused by downscaling maybe. Could you upload a short sample? There are some blurring filters which can improve aliasing, but I am not really too familiar with this.

Yes, I really had to zoom in to 500% to notice...

Try some of the Anti-Aliasing filters from here:
