Highly arguable. Default settings maximize quality and not speed. Post here your system specs and a A2D log file and I will suggest you some hints to increase speed.

I deleted the log file, but here are the settings I used.

AVS Source Filter - DirectShowSource
AVS Resize Filter - Lanczos4Resize
Setup Video Profiles - 1. QuEnc CBR 1-pass
AC3 Audio Encoder - FFmpeg+Aften
Enable MultiThread Encoding ON
Keep DVD Compliant Video ON
Keep DVD Compliant Audio ON



hlrsnd, ConvertXtoDVD now has Two-pass encoding option, Multicore support and about 15 resize filters.

6hr encoding with 'QuEnc CBR 1-pass' profile? What kind of footage are you converting to DVD? Supposing that your footage lasts 2 hours, it means that you are going with 8-10 fps.

Hints to speed up:
- Use LinearResize
- Select 'Half-D1' or 'VCD' as video resolution
- Assuming you are still using QuEnc, toggle on 'Edit Encoder Command Parameters at runtime' and change '-hq' with '-nohq'.

Afterward, do not complain about quality...

MKV, 720p, x264, Bluray rip. About 4,37GB. Movie length is about 106 min. I want the best possible quality, so, i'm not going to change any quality settings. Was just wondering about such a big conversion time gap between the two programs.

It means that QuEnc is encoding at about 7-8 fps (6 hours enc time - 108 min footage). It is really too slow: my system (Core2 duo T8300 @2.4 Ghz) not far from yours, with same settings (720p, QuEnc CBR 1-pass, DirectShowSource, Lanczos4Resize) goes at about 30-35 fps, resulting in less than 2 hours to encode a 106 min footage.

Check the directshow filters installed. Too many can arise conflicts. I suggest to use ONLY ffdshow and haali as mp4/mkv splitter.

Thanks for 2.2.5.

I recently completed a project in 2.2.4, using mjpeg and DV sources from my own camera and camcorder. It took 100 minutes to complete. Any advantages/bugfixes which would make it worthwhile to redo in 2.2.5? It seems ok now.

I also tried it (2.2.4) using the latest HCEnc 0.24 from 11/27/09 and couldn't tell any difference.

If I already have AVISYNTH installed, would I still get this plug in?

@hlrsnd

No, you do not have to run your project again. There are no improvements on DV encoding with 2.2.5

@Richardw322

NicAudio is not provided with standard AviSynth installation. Anyway you have to do nothing: nicaudio.dll is located in A2D Lib folder and its use is transparent to the user or to other apps.

Is there any reason why the Bias in HCenc v0.23 is set to 50 ?

http://img694.imageshack.us/img694/9661/hcenc.png

According to the pdf

Code:
*BIAS
parameter bias (range 0  100) type integer
Status not required
Default 0
Example *BIAS 30
This command tweaks the compression curve, 0 means full VBR (Variable BitRate), 100 tends to 
CBR (Constant BitRate).
is there something wrong with the default?

Hi

Using your program for the first time today and I have had a lot of success its simple but configurable also. I had one question and one bug report.

Can I manually add in any avisynth filters in the editor?

I have had success with file types except for flv. Should I attempt to convert to other format like d2v be using AVStoDVD?

This was the error log

Bias is not fixed but calculated using following formula:

Code:
Bias = Int(VideoAvgBitRate / 1000)) * 10
rationale is that if bitrate is high, the compression curve should go towards CBR (high Bias), otherwise the curve should go VBR (low Bias).

Yes, you can. Just make sure that the AVS script has consistency (check it using the Preview Clip feature).

Have you have installed flvsplitter? And a good directshow codecs suite like ffdshow?

I have not fully tested 0.24 but some users assert that there are no issues just replacing the executable.

MrC,
Thanks for your great program, I have used it with great success in the past.

I have a few problems though.

For one, my settings are not saved from session to session using the latest version (2.2.5).

Also, in my attempt to convert my Transformers 2 Blu-ray .m2ts file, I am having a number of issues converting audio. For one, if I select the main DTS-HD track and encode using WAVI+AFTEN the encode fails.

If I use FFMPEG+AFTEN I only get the first 25 minutes of audio or so and then the rest of the movie is silent.

Also, if I try to use one of the AC3 tracks as a source, HCenc just hangs and and uses a constant ~15% CPU. And I am pretty sure that it is not using FFMpegAudioSource to index, as I don't see a .cache file created at all. Additionally, if I load the script created using one of the AC3 tracks as a source file into MPC, it also hangs and just uses ~15% of the CPU.

I'm trying to convert several of my Blu-ray's to DVD, and as this is the most feature full program available, I was hoping to use it. However, these issues are causing some serious problems that may force be to do it all manually (which I really don't want to do).

Edit: Here is the log of what I thought to be a successful encode, but it has the problem with the audio failing at ~25min:

Hi Adub,

first of all thanks for the kind words and for using A2D. Let's approach the issues, as I believe they are not impossible to solve.

About save settings: do you mean Preferences? Are you sure you have saved them by checking the lower left option box? You can verify the preferences saving by looking at the following reg key:
HKLM\Software\AVStoDVD

About DTS-HD audio, I have to admit that I am not very used at BD to DVD encoding. Anyway, here you are some suggestions:

1. I'm sure you have already installed ffdshow as DTS audio decoder, haven't you?
2. Have you tried DTS to AC3 conversion with QUENC profile?
3. When you select the other AC3 sources, try do demux them instead of directly encoding using FFMpegSource
4. Use always the 'Preview Clip' function: it saves you time and if there are AviSynth errors, they are displayed.

Let me know

Bye

MrC

Ah, just realized about the lower left hand corner "Preferences" option. Thanks for that.

Yes, I have FFDShow installed with the DTS audio decoder enabled. I realized that I have a semi old (NOV 09) build, so I'm updating to the latest to see if that helps.

The problem with this source is that the AC3 tracks are all foreign languages, so I don't really need them anyways.

I will use the Preview Clip function from now on.

I'm attempting another try with the options that you suggest + the newer FFDShow build, and I will report back.

Edit: Preview works. Both Audio and Video. Playback is choppy, but it works.

Okay, a temporary report.

The DTS-HD audio encode failed using Wavi+AFTEN. I managed to take a screen shot which I will post when I get back home later today.

One thing I may try is disabling DTS in FFDShow so that A2DAudioSource uses NicDTS instead. This may or may not fix it, but I will follow any suggestions that you have after I have posted a screenshot of the error.

Good idea.

And do not forget to try QuEnc as audio encoder.



Bye

Here is the error that I encountered ealier:

Oh, and disabling the ffdshow decoder cause AVStoDVD to hang. Apparently, NicDTSSource doesn't like loading a .m2ts file as a source, which is understandable.

I'm going to try using libavcodec as the decoder and then maybe Quenc.
