Also I notice your logs contain non-standard characters in their names, that could also lead to problems for a lot of programs.

Characters with accents can often lead to many problems with Windows environments.
is not very Windows friendly for most programs.

I'd suggest renaming everything to very basic names with nothing fancy.

If is very common, no matter what you do, a simple google search will show the proper way to remove different languages from your keyboard.

Most often the letter "" is from a keyboard shortcut programmed to use French characters over North American characters. This can be fixed by going into the Control Panel > Languages > and removing/deleting/disabling stuff that's not North American English.

When working with most conversions, my basic principle is that every name must be as short as possible, including file names and folder names. this ensures less errors, as windows is... well just windows lol.

Aside from switching all foreign characters to standard English characters, I'd highly recommend using eac3to to convert your audio to AC3 for AVStoDVD before starting your next project.

You might even need to update/install MP3 decoding filters.

MP3 decoding requires either official LAME MP3 system decoder filters to be installed...

Or, "FFDshow Audio" to be configured to handle MP3 audio.
Either way works fine.
FFDShow would be easier as it does updates more often than official "LAME" releases.

...If FFDShow does not handle LAME MP3 after initial installation, configure it to do so.
Also to handle the usual "Raw Audio - Compatible" etc.

FFDshow on its own or by K-Lite Codec Packs is updated constantly.

LameACM is only good if the source is encoded with Lame MP3; which, yours has been: 3..97.

Lame is currently updated to 3.99.

Problem with PAL speedup

Hi MrC

I have a HD NTSC movie that I want to mux with PAL audio and subtitles.
I want to make a PAL DVD using the 4% speedup, so the video only needs to be resized, right?
So I encoded a 10Mb fragment (obtained using mkvmerge) with output set to Elementary MPEG2 streams.

Looking at the logfile I can see that the result has a different framerate and number of frames.

Q1. Why is DGPulldown used?

Q2. Why does the number of frames differ after encoding, and after DGPulldown?

Thank you very much for this brilliant program, and keep up the great work.

@8ternity

have you tried with 'Wavi+Aften' as AC3 encoder setup?

@gobbleman

wow, you have found a bug with the AviSynth script generation when 'PAL speedup' is selected AND audio is not present. I will surely fix it in the next release. Thanks!

As workaround you can edit the AviSynth script ('Edit Title'/'AviSynth') by replacing:
Code:
Return Video

AssumeFPS("pal_film", sync_audio=true).ResampleAudio(48000)
with
Code:
AssumeFPS(Video, "pal_film")
About your questions: of course DGPulldown must not start if 'PAL speedup' is selected. Frames are higher after pulldown because they are inserted to convert framerate without altering the time length.

No. I've try with HenC 2pass; wich normally everything pass. I remember that Wavi+After has not worked well on many project with avi files; i used HenC Locked has recommended previously by you last year (starting to 2.3.2 version).

I've used Nero Vision Xtra 'latest' to resolve my issue for the moment. I can try later with same files this week to let you know if you need that i test to resolve the issue, or for knowledges, up to you.

THanks.

Wait, wait, HCenc 2-pass is a video encoding profile, we are speaking about AC3 audio encoder selection: 'Wavi+Aften' instead of QuEnc.

Hi MrC

Discovered your nifty piece of software after having issues with Avi2DVD. Searched around and various recommendations led me to AVS2DVD.

My problems with Avi2DVD stemmed with various files going out of sync when converted to an ISO. I've run the same files through AVS2DVD and am pleased to see there are no issues with synching, but there are issues with the picture quality that I've not had with Avi2DVD.

It seems movement causes distortion in the picture with horizontal streaking lines appearing around the edges of objects/characters moving. I've run it through both QuEnc and HCenc but the same problem occurs.

There's a few too many posts to go through every one and see if others have had this problem, but a quick scan through and I can't see anything. The fact that it doesn't appear to be a common complaint leads me to think that it might be easily fixable?

Any ideas or help would be most appreciated.

Many thanks

This certainly sounds like combing artifacts from an interlaced source. If your source is interlaced, you have to decide if you want to keep it interlaced or if you want to deinterlace it before encoding.

I don't have AVStoDVD installed ATM, but I remember that it offers the possibility to edit the AVS script, so you can add a deinterlacer to the script.


Cheers

As Manolito says, your issue may be caused by an interlaced footage wrongly encoded. BTW AVStoDVD properly handles interlaced sources, if they are detected as interlaced.

Do you have still the project log file? Please post it here. If you don't, could you post the MediaInfo report of your source title?

Ignore my previous (now removed) email with my apologies.

Hopefully you'll forgive my foolishness and allow me to try again!

So, following on from my initial email, the issue I'm having seems to occur on all files (avi & mkv) and is not specific to any individual files.

Here's the log from a (different) file that had the problem:

I'm not sure what's now the problem: "horizontal streaking lines appearing around the edges of objects/characters moving" or the very short output file?

Hi Mr C

Sorry, I'm a bit clueless when it comes to these sorts of things, that was possibly one conversion I abandoned early on (I have several of these in the same folder, thought the first would be the one to use!).

Please see what I hope is the correct version below and, yes, the issue is still the picture, and from looking at a site that had pics of interlacing I believe that is the issue:

well, source footage should be progressive, not interlaced:

Info: XviD - 3999 kbps - 1280x528 - DAR 2.424 - 24 fps (CFR) - Progressive - 1:27:44 hours - 126337 frames
and AVStoDVD has encoded it as progressive, preserving the field order/setup of the source:

Are you sure that source footage is ok? Do you have the possibility to upload a small portion of it somewhere (i.e. mediafire.com)?

Hi Mr C

I'm not entirely sure how to take a small portion of footage out (I'd need to figure out how) but it is an issue with all files it seems, not just one, and as I mentioned in my original message the piece of software I have been using produces a perfect picture, it was just having a few audio synching issues that I couldn't solve on certain files. (So basically the files themselves are fine).

Did you want a sample to see a visual of what I'm talking about? Perhaps I can find a pic of something that looks similar?

You can easily use VirtualDub or Avidemux to crop some seconds of footage.

Okay, so I was checking the files to see what footage I could use, and I checked the ISO through VLC.... and it was fine!

Burnt the ISO to disc, checked the disc through VLC, and that was fine too!

As soon as a play it in the blu-ray player through the TV, that's when the image problem begins. I've mucked about with the settings on both the player and TV but can't seem to fix the picture issue, and now I'm completely puzzled why it's occurring.

Any ideas? I'm completely lost (and out of my depth, tech-wise!).

Cheers.

It could be that your BD player does not welcome mpeg2 footage with pulldown. In your case pulldown has been applied by AVStoDVD (thru DGPulldown) to change framerate from 24fps to 25fps.

Take a look to your player manual (or any related forum) to verify this guess.

If the guess is correct, as workaround you can go with the AssumeFPS approach. Add to the end of your project AviSynth script the following line:

Code:
AssumeFPS("pal_film", sync_audio=true).ResampleAudio(48000)

Okay, well that fixed the picture issue (yay!) but it threw the audio completely out of synch by about a minute! So, somewhere in between then?

Thanks

Ops, sorry, I forgot to tell you to force audio re-encoding: go 'Edit Title'/'Audio' and toggle off 'Keep DVD compliant audio'.



Bye
