check the CPU load before encoding and during encoding.
the first should be close to 0 the second should be 100%.

Is this 1080i? That requires way more power than dvd-res.

here is the log

--pass 1 --bitrate 1000 --stats "C:\Program Files\WebScheduler\capture\rhys2.stats" --bframes 3 --b-pyramid --direct auto --filter -2,-1 --subme 1 --analyse none --me dia --progress --no-psnr --output NUL "C:\Program Files\WebScheduler\capture\rhys2.avs"
successfully started encoding

the first pass only goes at about 8-9fps when with StaxRip goes at about 25-30fps, does deinterlacing decrease the speed that much?

Wait, why not just toss a field away? EEDI2+Tdeint is a performance hog, you could just use SeparateFields().SelectEven().LanczosResize(512,288) and get practically the exact same result, since you're halving the vertical resolution anyway.

Should I still be getting the warning popup about the bitrate calc not being updated with the latest version of Megui?
I have been using autoupdate since 2148 so maybe I need something that autoupdate doesn't update if this has been fixed?

I remember seeing something about the warning was going to be removed in an earlier thread.

I am running 2155, currently.

I thought I had fixed it, but it still seems to be quite buggy, so the warning message does apply.

2155 bitrate calc dont work here - 5587 for a single cd backup - bit much me thinks

on a diff topic if i wanted to do .ts to hd-dvd (well that qual anyway prob be a 2 cd poss 1/2 dvd) is it a simple step of selecting size (original is 1920x1080i) my pc can do 1280x720 nicely, and selcting the hd-dvd profile from within megui or is there other things i need to concider, im still new to this area of backup so please excuse and old n00b

Here are my experiences, such as they are:

1. If your TS is a movie, proceed much as normal. One catch: DGIndex often refuses to read TS files, it complains about missing "PIDs" whatever those are. So I process the .ts to .mpg with a program called "HDTV to MPEG" first, and run DGIndex on the results. Then AviSynth can chew the D2V file and serve it to MeGUI.

2. If it's a TV show with multiple sections including interlaced video, telecined film, archive footage rezzed up to 1080 etc, MeGUI seems to have a hard time choosing a deinterlacer that gives decent results. It's usually better to write your own Avisynth script using DirectShowSource() to get the video stream into the encoder and let DirectShow deinterlace it. [The docs say AviSynth tries to disable DirectShow deinterlacing, but fortunately I've never seen it succeed.]

3. On my usual settings, I get about 7fps for 720x576 PAL DVD backups done in single pass constant quality mode and I don't worry about how many files fit to a DVD. For 1080p/24 I want one movie per DVD so I have to do 2 pass, and I get about 1.2 to 1.4fps on each pass. It takes me 3 or 4 days to encode a movie (A64 X2 3800+). If I didn't like the ColorMatrix() filter in Avisynth so much (my backups look better than the originals), I'd just burn the TS files to two or three DVDs. Some time I'll check out how Xvid does with one HD movie on a DVD9.

4. Many a transport stream has a negative audio delay and a few hundred bytes of junk on the front of the sound. MeGUI may refuse to open these for encode using its standard NicAc3Source filters. MkvMerge doesn't particularly like muxing them straight back onto the encoded video without audio compression, either. DirectShowSource will get the sound into the encoder, and then the encode will synch/mux OK.

Hi All,
I'm using MeGui v0.2.3.2116, DGMPGDec v1.4.6, TIVTC v1 RC4 and I'm having the following problem. Whenever I attempt to perform the deinterlace analysis an error window pops up stating that TIVTC.dll cannot be found and that 'tfm' is not a recognised command. I have TIVTC.dll in my avisynth dir and using it in scripts without issue. Any ideas what may be happening?

Cheers

sounds like it might be a right pain in the arse, although latest dgindex (1.4.7b12) had no issues with it

guess its a case of trial and error to see what resssults will look like

thanks for the advice

edit: found NullPacketStripper_v013beta it seems to join the ts files together ok with no apparent sync issues

Excuse me, but how do i create profiles for the one click encoder? i need to encode dvd rip>avi. Megui says i need to select audio/video profiles, but there dont seem to be any of them?

Get a new version of MeGUI from http://x264.nl and it should be clear.

just a question...

for minimal denoising of a video_clip shouldn't Undot() be replaced by RemoveGrain()?

advantage (IMHO):

- RemoveGrain(mode=1) is identical with trbarry's Undot (even the speed of the SSE version is nearly identical to that of Undot, but the SSE2 and especially the SSE3 versions are significantly faster)... = from the readme
- the denoising algo is considered to be more complex

what do you think...

when using the avisynth script creator I have noticed a difference between d2v source and directshow source...

my guess is that it could be an avisynth failure because detection via d2v source is correct... see attached pictures.
