AVStoDVD 225 vs 226

Dear MrC,

I have just finished my first encodings with your tool and want to thank you thoroughly! Once configured the tasks just run smoothly through. The menu creation is just fabulous for a free tool!

I have many years of experience with avi and mkv encoding and DVD backup from virtualdub to Handbrake but with your tool and Hcenc I discovered the charm of DVD creation, mainly from my miniDV tapes.

I would like to contribute by feeding back some experiences that I collected with the versions 2.2.5 and 2.2.6.

I was not happy with 2.2.6 at all because I ran into the runtime error 383 described in the post from 3rd February.
With around 2.5h of material to encode the 2.2.6 chose Quenc. When I changed manually to Hcenc 2pass the output size calculation went down to only 2,2 GB.
The same happened when I exchanged one of the titles from the initial list for another.

I finally realized that the calculation of output size was stable when I did changes manually title by title, but with copying the properties from one title to the other it crashed and could not be restored. Maybe a "recalculate output size" function would be helpful.

The last thing I did was an 18 hours encode of a full 4450MB DVD with 11 titles from miniDVD. logfile and projectfile attached. I was very astonished that unexplainably the DVD is only 3,3 GB big!?

As this is my first post on that topic I hope it was not too confused.

Kind regards and AVStoDVD for the future (with Hcenc 0.24?)

Is there a way to adjust the HC Encoder Matrix that is being used? I recorded a lot of sports events from the Olympics, hockey of course, and since the games can be 3+ hours long, the bitrate will be quite low on a DVD-R single layer.

I would presume that switching the MPEG matrix to QLB might do some good? The source material is a bit grainy (shitty DVB SD broadcast), so a bit of blur would most likely reduce artefacts.

The "recalculate output size" routine is already present. If you can clarify better the error (log files, screenshots, etc.), it would be easier to find a solution.

18 hours on a DVD-5 !!!!!

Bitrate is too low to manage even for a very good mpeg2 encoder as HCenc.

Try to stay under 6 hour of video footage on a DVD-5, and maybe select Half-D1 as output video resolution.

Yep, HCenc 0.24beta will be supported. Now I'm working on multi audio support.

Go to 'Title Edit'/'Video', toggle off 'Auto Video Setup' and click on 'HCenc Advanced Options'.

Damn, nicely hidden from stupid noobs like me! And now I see a bunch of matrices I have never heard of...Bitrates are going to be 3000-ish, and hockey is very demanding material to encode.

I recall QLB from the past - can anyone hint how would these others perform on sports?

2.2.5 vs 2.2.6

Hi MrC

and thanks for the speedy answer.

The recalculation of output size seems to work constantly in the background which is absolutely fine. I thought I had spotted some manual actions which make this routine crash. I'll try to reproduce it and will report again. I think the 2.2.5 is more stable than the 2.2.6 in that regard.

No, no, no thats a misunderstanding! I meant that the encoding took 18 hours! I encoded around 2.5 hours of material. When you look at the attached project file, it clearly states that the size of the DVD is 4450 MB. However the end product had only 3.2 GB! So the compression was by far too strong. That was my question. I dont want to repeat that lenghty process and get the same stuff in the end again.
Sorry, I have to learn to describe more precisely.

Kind regards and thanks again.

Ok, I have got the 18 hours misunderstanding. Anyway, from the log file, you have encoded 12 titles of 20 minutes each. Tot video time is more than 4 hours... still too much.

Try to load less titles (2 hours and half are enough) and retry the project.

Quoting myself, as I re-encoded with QLB.

Overall the quality was improved great with QLB vs. MPEG, encoding the olympic hockey finals + extras totalling about 3h15min. The macro-blockyness was reduced and the overall image was smoother.

On the negative side, there is a rather heavy ringing artefact on high contrast edged (namely player vs. ice surface). The artefact exists already in the shitty SD DVB source material, but encoding using QLB seems to make it even rougher - or it stands out more in the otherwise smooth-ish image.

AVStoDVD has begun to abort at job start

I've been using various releases of AVStoDVD for over a year.
I did have #225 installed, which I last successfully used about 2-months ago.
I decided to encode another video , so I updated to #226 before starting. After updating , I tried to use the "Menu Editor" to change to another template. When I then received this error message ........" ---------------------------
AVStoDVD
---------------------------
Warning! Image 'C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\MenuPage1.bmp' cannot be found or is invalid!AVStoDVD default image will be loaded.
---------------------------
OK
--------------------------- " I have never had this problem before, and repeated attempts gave the same error message.
So I decided to proceed with the job , and a few seconds after clicking on "Start" I received a error message that the process was being aborted. I tried again , and used a different video , but the process always aborts.
I then uninstall-ed version# 226 , and installed version#224, with the same outcomes. After UN-installing #224 , I installed #225 and received the same "Menu Editor " error and the same process aborted, a few seconds after starting.
Below is a copy of the log-file of my last process aborted job.

From: http://www.ted.com/

It's a very interesting web-site with discussions on topics in a very in-depth fashion . There are a lot of TED videos posted on You-Tube.
My Church has a TED night every Monday , in which we watch a TED video on You-Tube and then have a group discussion about the video's topic.
I think that TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Development.

The video was orginally a MP4 video, but I re-encoded it to .avi container, codec: Xvid with MP3 audio for stand alone player compatablity reasons.

it could be a codec issue. Can you play the AVI with WMP? Can you play the AVI with AVStoDVD 'Preview Clip' function?

Thanks, again!

My problem was not the video quality which is still acceptable because these are lectures from a congress. My question is why the full capacity of the DVD was not used? The given size in the project file was 4450 MB while the final size of the DVD was only 3,2 GB. Are there any hints in the logfile what went wrong. I have done a previous encode with 5 hours on one DVD5 which went well.



Another choice I do not yet fully understand is the "DVD compliant audio". This was changed from 2.2.5 to 2.2.6, where ac3 is no longer accepted to be DVD compliant. What is the background? As far as I know ac3 is a standard audio format for DVDs. The only choice for "DVD compliant audio" in 2.2.6 seems to be PCM wave with 1536bps?

Sorry for repeated questions...

As I said before, HCenc seemed to have hard time to manage such low bitrates (take a look at your log file).

As a matter of fact it is exactly the opposite: since release 2.2.6 (DVD compliant) AC3 retaining is still present, while I have removed (DVD compliant) PCM wav retaining...

I could play the file with WMP 11, with Nero decoders , also with HC-MPC , but not with AVStoDVD 'Preview Clip' function.
But I think the problem started , when I updated to #2.2.6 without UN-installing #2.2.5 . During the up-date, AVStoDVD detected AviSynth 2.5 and the Haali Media Splitter.
But I don't think AVStoDVD was able to "sync" with them, after up-dating. Falling back to version 2.2.5 didn't solve the problem either.
So UN-installed version 2.2.5 , and both AviSynth 2.5 and the Haali Media Splitter . I the downloaded another copy of version
#2.2.6 , and while installing I also selected to re-install new copies of both AviSynth 2.5 and the Haali Media Splitter.
After doing so I found that AVStoDVD was once more functioning correctly on my computer! And I selected to use FFDShow with AVStoDVD.

Here is a copy of sucessful AVStoDVD job...........

Hey, Mr.C, remember how I was encoding a bunch of Blurays with AVStoDVD? Well, I finally had the time to write a guide here: Convert Blurays to DVD with AVStoDVD.

If I made any mistakes, or gave incorrect information, please let me know and I'll fix it.

Thanks for the wonderful little program!

WOW!

AFAIK this is the first AVStoDVD guide on the web! for your effort!

Some considerations:

Step 3: After selecting Video Profile, to fix it you must click on the lock icon
Step 12: Multithread encoding is "on" by default
Step 15: I would add the possibility to see HighLights links by toggling on the "HL Links" button. It could be handy to understand DVD menu navigation.
Step 18: Save the project before START! It saves a huge amount of time if something goes wrong.

Great job indeed!



Bye

Having problems - HCenc0.23 Not Responding

Just been using the latest download of AVStoDVD - when I add an M2TS file along with subs. As soon as I hit start the HCenc window opens and then just hangs. When I view taskmanager it says that the application is not responding.

Running win 7 64 bit.

Here is a copy of the log file

Some considerations:

Step 3: After selecting Video Profile, to fix it you must click on the lock icon
Step 12: Multithread encoding is "on" by default
Step 15: I would add the possibility to see HighLights links by toggling on the "HL Links" button. It could be handy to understand DVD menu navigation.
Step 18: Save the project before START! It saves a huge amount of time if something goes wrong.

Great job indeed!

Great! Thanks for the overview. I'll fix up the tutorial when I get home.
