GKnot 0.27 Segmented AVI loading

Unfortunately it is only possible to load ONE AVI file into the new GKnot, but there is a workaround. GKnot can now open AviSynth scripts(!) so you only create a .avs file with this single line:
Code:
SegmentedAviSource("capture.avi")
...and open it in GKnot. This will setup GKnot correctly for your convenience.

It is then possible to edit the final AVS to incorporate this line instead of AviSource("capture.avs")

Note that SegmentedAviSource has a bug in AviSynth v2.07, as a work around you should manually delete the last (small, empty) segment or use v2.06.

When I use it, it never reads the first file, it says it can't decompress frame 0. But if I trim the first file and save it again, it works.

Then I remembered seeing it mentioned 0.27 will also open avs files, so I made a one line avs opening my cap with the AviSource command. I then tried it in Gknot, and bingo, it opened perfectly!!. I then resized and cropped, BUT I didn't use the save and encode function. I merely closed the avs, and edited the original file. I don't know how TheWEF implemented avi files, but it appears to want uncompressed colorspace. I'm not complaining, since I know from my own experience how Murphy's Law LOVES computer programming. :0 This is merely an observation about using this new function.

My experience is that when I open an avi file in GKnot, it will be displayed. When I write an .avs with the same file in it, it will not be displayed, I'll only get the grey screen.

Is there anything wrong with this line:

AVISource("d:\video\simpsons.00.avi")

It will be grey in GKnot.

Hi Wilbert,

I personally noticed that this 'bug' only occures if I try to load Huffyuv_captures (i.e. 720x576). SegmentedAviSource in AviSynth v2.07 works flawless (in my case) with [PicVideo @q19]-MJPEG. That's why GKnot opens SegmentedAviSource captured with MJPEG like a charm, but refuses to load if captured with Huffyuv.


my 2 cents


regards Sill

Amazing how people's experiences differ. I CAN'T see anything but grey when I open avs (or avi, for that matter) that is captured with picvideo mjpeg q 18.

Hmm, can you try the latest 2.07+ binary "http://cultact-server.novi.dk/kpo/avisynth/avs_cvs.html". Same problem?

@mazzo,

Is installing huffyuv of any help (and removing msyuv.dll)?

Solution?

Hi there,

just came over this Thread, coz I also wanted to load segmented AVI's in GKnot.
I have the same "Grey-Screen"-Problem.

My Captures were done with a DC10+ (own MJPEG-Codec).
But for playback/edit I use PicVideo. (...because I process Video on another Machine, which has no DC10 inside...)

I use GKnot 0.27 + SystemPack (Fresh Install, no updated Software...)

Has anybody a Solution for that Problem described above?

Thanx...
