No menu generation capability, right now. Maybe in the future...

Hi, I tried to add 5 avi tv episodes to your program but it will only let me add one avi file. Can you tell me how to add a batch of avi files?

Batch to me means adding 5 separate movies to 5 separate discs. You want to author a full disc, surely with a menu for navigation which AVStoDVD won't do. Theres lots of other tools on this forum alone which will do that.

I mean 5 avi tv episodes onto one dvd. A batch of avis means more than one avi onto one disc not five separate discs. Hope this helps

As I said, AVStoDVD can't do this. It will accept one movie per job, so you'd need to join them together first, which is probably useless for 5 TV episodes!

Taking the big brother (VSO) as the master reference, that issue is the most hard task to a free gui to accomplish

- people like speed, with good results, that's a fact

What strategy should a gui use for this ?

A) convert separately, and author all together in authoring stage ?
B) join the movies and subtitles like VDub append segments ?

--

A) it is only effective if you use 1 pass

5 episodes = 5 passes each

imagine more passes

5 episodes converted at 2 passes = 5 * 2 = 10 passes total

takes a long ... long time

B) it is the best way for fragmented movies, but less effective with episodes due to the limitations of : same bitrate..same samplerate...etc...

correct me if I'm wrong

Yes you hit the point: batch encoding (at least for AVStoDVD - click "Jobs List" on the toolbar) means a series of separated jobs to be done one after one.

In my first test the encoding took far longer than I thought it should with such a simple script and QuEnc. So I opened the log file and saw this:

<10/16/2007 10:43:43 PM>
WARNING: Cannot find 'C:\Program Files\AVStoDVD\Plugins\MultiCoreEnc.exe'. MultiThread disabled.

I looked in the plugins folder and found this:

MultiCoreEnc_.exe

Once I had renamed the file it worked as expected.

I'm finding 1.1.3 to be a bit confusing. I was hoping it would remember some of my settings, vid bitrate and Muxed MPEG2 Streams output (it does remember the audio bitrate). It also took me a while to figure out why HCenc wasn't being used even though I picked it in settings, although the ability to quickly change to a quicker (with QUenc) encode from the main page has it's uses. And for some reason the preview does not switch to 16:9 (it used to) when WS is chosen.

As it is said in the History file, "Quality profile", "Max video bitrate" and "audio bitrate" are remembered. Not Avg video bitrate because it depends from input streams and DVD size choosen.

Yes, by choosing "Standard Quality" or "High Quality" profile, QuEnc is automatically used (1-pass); instead by choosing "Very High Quality" profile, the proper encoder specified in the Settings Window is used (QuEnc or HCenc or CCE SP, 2-passes). I find this change more intuitive and quick to setup project. Don't you?

However in the next release I'm planning to stop CCE SP support (is anyone still using it in AVStoDVD?), to include HCenc in the installer package and to use HCenc as unique "Very High Quality" encoder. What do you think?

I will fix it in the next release.

Havent tested much, but if theres no video source file loaded
and you hit the preview in the avisynth script window, avs2dvd throws an runtime error 53 with description file not found Path:\preview000000.jpg and then exits.
Which is of course natural since theres nothing to preview, and why would anyone try to preview nothing, but i thought id mention it anyway for coding completeness

Since the next release, I will replace DVDAuthor with MuxMan/BatchMux. That means multiplexing m2v+ac3 step is no more necessary. Will removing "Muxed MPEG2 Stream" choice cause you any troubles or may I do it?
