DGMPGDec 1.0.12 released!

EDIT: Link and thread title updated to reflect most recent version.

Here is the first incarnation of DGMPGDec. I wanted to get an initial version out so that Cyberia can get started on the FAQ (), and I thought it would be useful to get the auto AVS generation and new Quick Start guide out there early. Refer to the Quick Start guide for details on how to use the auto AVS file generation.

http://neuron2.net/fixd2v/dgmpgdec1012a.zip

---------------------------------------------------------
DGMPGDec Version 1.0.1 Functional Changes
(versus DVD2AVIdg/MPEG2DEC3dg 1.3.0)
---------------------------------------------------------

1. Recast everything with the new DGMPGDec naming scheme
(DGIndex, DGDecode, DGVfapi, DGFix, DGParse, DGTable).

2. Destroy Info dialog after user dismisses the "finished" popup.

3. Added auto AVS file generation. Refer to the Quick Start guide
for details.

4. Fixed DGVfapi.vfp so that it doesn't crash when called with
a file that is not a D2V file (TMPGEnc does this).

5. Fixed the IDCT selection to not be global in DGDecode.

6. Wrote a quick start guide.

7. Removed the Open DVD menu item and support.

Nice

Maybe this should have been mentioned before, but I just came to think of it...
How about a new application icon as well to mark this new generation of the tool?

I was mostly thinking about retouching the current with some other colours and making it more "XP"-styled...

Unfortunately my art skills are pretty much nonexistant, so I have to leave that to someone else

*hopes someone else will give it a try*

Hi Neuron2;

Great job you are doing with this new release Don.

Would you consider including a Premier plugin interface for DGMPGDec?

If clipping and resized were working you could then use your favorite Premier plugin mpeg encoder without using avisynth.

I mainly have been re-encoding ATSC HDTV clips to DVD and authoring to play on my set-top player.

Thanks for all your great work.

Very cool. Thanks Donald!

The auto avs creation is a nice touch also.

Hmmm... except the mpeg2source() line appears to be case sensitive.
If you use MPEG2Source in your template.avs, the d2v filename doesn't get picked up, but use mpeg2source and it does.

Regards
Jeff

Thank you neuron2!

I now have an easy and convenient way to frame serve all types of MPEG2 files to CCE Basic so I can re-encode at lower bitrates.

Unlikely, but you never know. It would be a lot of work, especially to disassociate it from Avisynth.

Oh drat, I didn't think of that. I'll correct it in the next version after DGMPGDec 1.0.1. Speaking of which...

DGMPGDec 1.0.1 is available at my site. It fixes some crashing at the end of transport streams when the PIDs are not yet set.

Don, can you check on filelocks on DGDecode.dll. I ask because I downed the new version and when I tried to opercopy, DGDecode shows in use. Simple to logout and back in, but thought I should mention it.

Sorry, DDogg, but I have no idea what you are talking about.

Sorry my crap spelling and hurried post.

When I attempted to replace the older DGDecode.dll with a newer version, Windows showed DGDecode.dll as "in use" even though no programs were open that were accessed it. Perhaps nothing to do with your work. I thought this happened when the program did not 'clear' itself properly after termination, but then I really do not know if that is correct. Just wanted to mention it to you in case that was the way it is.

No it would have be something on your system that had the DLL opened. Maybe you had something minimized, an instance of VirtualDub perhaps?

No, but it is probably just one of those strange 'windows things'. I can't replicate it again so please disregard.

Yeah, it happens. I have an editor that always holds files opened, even after I close the files in the editor. I have to kill the editor's instance in my taskbar to free up the files. And other times some processes crash and get orphaned, holding the files opened. Sometimes you can find and kill them in Task Manager, but a reboot is almost always effective.

As a sporadic premiere user, I'd like to see that too...
But, can Premiere read other data than RGB?
If not, someone should make a VFAPI reader plugin for Premiere (which would be useful even for other things like AVIUtl and TMPGEnc 2.5).

Premiere and Vegas both readily read a VFAPI.AVI, Link2, or MakeAVIS pseudo file already. Or do you mean for it to read the D2V directly? I think I am missing something obvious

As for out-bound, Satish's frameserver allows you to serve your timeline to your favorite external encoder. www.debugmode.com

Nope.

Premiere Pro can import YUY2, but people suspect it is converted to RGB when doing processing.

I mean read .d2v directly and not through a wrapper avi.
With vfapi reader support it could also read aviutl projects and tmpg (2.5 and earlier) projects directly. And files from any other program that support vfapi output.

But if Premiere can read YV12 and/or YUY2 natively, it would be nice to see a plugin for premiere that would deliver that.

Premiere works internally in RGB, Premiere pro can work in AYUV if input is YUV
