i have a very silly question encoding with megui.

Everytime when i load/want to encode a Video (XVid etc.) and then want to encode it asks me for the AUDIO input....but i dont HAVE one since the Audio (duh!) is included in the avi already.

Or do i have to demux manually and then import the audio ?
Why ? (Doesnt megui do that automatically somehow ?)

staxrip does that with vdubmod....but then staxrip seems to have a problem with encoding into AAC.

It just wont into my brain why megui wants some external audio file for default.


Edit: Also.."one click encoder":

i figured this would make things easier....but when i click on "input file" it comes up with "all supported dgindex files"
and i can NOT load any .avi there just vob and mpgs. (Not to mention i dont even know what dgindex is/does).

create an .avs for audio too and feed it to megui audio input.

If you used the auto avs builder, it probably added an "Audio=False" comment into one of the first few lines. If you remove that, youc an use the same .avs for video and audio encoding.

Remember to test-play the .avs file prior to encoding to ensure you can hear the audio!

Convolution3D-YV12 in MEGUI

I've just started experimenting with MEGUI and note that Convolution3D-YV12 is included as one of the 'core filters'.

For many moons Convolution3D (the original YUY2 supported version) was my 'staple' denoiser for DV sources and I was very satisfied with the results (old, old old...I can hear some of you cry). When I changed to YV12 processing, I naturally adopted the YV12 supported version of Convolution3D, until it was pointed out to me by Boulder that the temporal influence parameter was never fully implemented, and is effectively disabled in this version (last revision v1.0.0.5)

http://forum.doom9.org/showpost.php?...5&postcount=22

This revelation prompted an exhaustive quest for a suitable alternative and after much testing, I finally settled on HQDN3D, although I've never quite been able to achieve the precision of Convolution3D.

I'm wondering if those developing and using MEGUI are aware of this deficiency in the Convolution3D-YV12 filter, unless, of course, someone has since fixed it?

Any way of getting the D2V Creator screen to accept multiple input files? I have tons of DVD's I've ripped to my hard drive already that have 1GB vob files, so most of my rips have 4-6 files.

Because of this, the D2V creator in MeGUI won't work for me, and I have to launch DGIndex manually do create the d2v index. (Its menu allows selecting multiple VOBs)

Yes, I know the Wiki says to use DVD Decrypter and have a single VOB file, but, well, I didn't do that.

Any change of allowing that one screen allow multiple VOBs, or be able to extrapolate what VOBs are needed by clicking on the IFO (similar to AutoGK) ?

If so ...
<Lumburgh> that would be greeeeaaat...</Lumburgh>

oh my.. have you considered just giving it at shot? the commandline interface of dgindex, and thus megui, works in a fashion that requires you to only indicate the first vob file in a series. You didn't seriously think we'd left the d2v creator that broken for more than a year (I added it back in mid 2005), did you?
Select your VTS_xy_1.VOB and VTS_xy_2.VOB, VTS_xy_3.VOB, etc will be picked up automatically. If the wiki suggests to rip to a single VOB file, that's just not necessary.. while I have nothing but contempt for FAT32 (where you can't joing everything due to the 4GB limit), having separate VOB files has not been a problem ever since I first started learning about ripping DVDs (summer '99).

This is done by opening the first vob file when running the d2v, and has been disscussed many times before.

Hi,
i made a d2v file of a 1088i Transport Stream mpeg2 with dgindex 1.4.8 without the cli because i wanted to crop the 8 lines directly with dgindex. Now megui tells me when i wanted to open the file the dgdecode.dll is not the same version as dgindex. but it is in the same directory and is of course the same version (update feature says the same). Tried to use the cli version, with the same effort. Avisynth is 2.56a. Is here something incampatible or can i fix it by hand?
thanx for this very useful tool

if it says it's a different version then it's a different version.
try removing megui and reinstalling it from scratch (redo all the updates) and ensure you didnt use a beta version of dgindex 1.4.8.

Re-create the d2v using the MeGUI d2v creator and see if it works.

you get that error because the dgindex version in your avisynth plugin folder (usually c:\program files\avisynth 2.5\plugins) doesn't match the dgindex version you're using.. that's all there is to be said about that... megui's "installer" really is just a smart file copier.
Or, your avisynth script references another dgdecode.dll file that doesn't match the dgdecode.dll that comes with your dgindex version.

oh, now i realized that i'm able to open the d2v file but if i try to use the preview the error message says :
Unable to cast object of type 'AvsVideoReader to type 'MeGui.d2vfile'.Source of exception: megui stacktrace at megui.avisynthwindow.openvideo etc.
so i can do most things blindly
