Does the 'Preview Clip' works?

Okay, I have added everything except for "lock video profile" as your program specifically says "NOT recommended". What does this option do?

Hello - looked through the FAQ's

none of them helped. I did, however, check that ffdshow was correctly set (it was) - still unable to get past the not responding part?

Not to worry - just un-installed everything (Avisynth, AVStoDVD and Haali) and reinstalled them all again - seems to be working again?

In the future, try creating your own script with the M2TS file as a source, and then load the script into something like Media Player Classic. If there is a problem in the decoding chain, it should be displayed when you try to play the script.

Color Matrix change

Thanks for the wonderful little program!

When converting Blu-Ray disc or HD cameras files to standard definition I add the ColorMatrix.dll to
the AVS script to correct for the different color matrix used.

To quote from the ColorMatrix v2.3 Manual "It will cause a slight color distortion, which looks like a change in brightness (it's not really a change in brightness, the colors are just slightly off)."

I add the following plugin at the start of the AVS script:

LoadPlugin("c:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\ColorMatrix.dll")

And add after: Video = Video.ConvertToYV12

Video = Video.ColorMatrix(mode="Rec.709->Rec.601")

Hmm...You may have a point there. The funny thing is, I did not do this, and I could have sworn that my output was just fine. I will have to check my DVD's when I get back home.

There does seem to be some debate about colorspaces. I read a thread once that detailed it quite well. Let me see if I can find it.

I'm getting an error when using Avs2Dvd 2.26, coming through HCenc and Avisynth, that states:
"Error: GetChannel: Attempted to request a channel that doesn't exist"

I can't seem to find the problem. Any idea on what it is about? audio, video?

My guess is actually audio. What's your source?

It's 'the Descent', bluray. The primary video stream is approx 21GB. The audio (as reported by tsmuxer) is a choice of either AC3 640kbps 6 channel, or LPCM 6144kbps, 7.1 channel

Quick question, maybe related?: I had Haali and avisynth already installed through another program folder (BDRebuilder), so I opted not to reinstall those programs when installing AVStoDVD. I didn't want to possibly mess up those working programs. So all I installed was the AVStoDVD package and the activeX controls... Was this the correct choice, since I already had avisynth and haali installed? I didn't want to install avisynth over a previous version...

EDIT: I have avisynth v 2.57 installed.. This should be OK?

Hello,

I have version 2.2.6 installed on a Windows 7 x86 edition and i have ffmpeg crashed during the conversion after the Henc 2-pass.

I have ffdshow clsid 3615 version installed, avisynth 2.5.8 stable, etc.

I convert an m2ts (dts audio french, 720p and 1080p movies) i try to convert in a dvd.

settings are henc 2pass, avs source: Tried (A2Dsource, DirectshowSource) and AC3 option (Wavi+Aften).

can someone help me please?

edit: i try right now update for the ffmpeg 0.5.1 version and try if it's ffmpeg crashed is due to an old version.

@archaeo

about audio issue, do select AC3 6 channels track because 8 channels are not supported. The avisynth error message is caused by the directshow audio filter that must be properly configured (mixer out settings: 3/0/2+LFE) to decode the 6 channels track. If you install ffdshow, then AVStoDVD will do the "dirty" job for you, but if you are using other AC3 decoders (like AC3Filter), you have to setup it by yourself.

You do not have to reinstall avisynth and haali, if they are already found on your system.


@8ternity

please post the log file, because I cannot exactly understand where's the problem. Audio demuxing step, I guess. Have you tried to force audio encoding (toggle off 'Keep dvd compliant audio')?

Actually, that sounds very similar to an issue that I had while processing Blurays and demuxing. The way that I solved it (as Mr. C suggested) was to use Quenc for my audio processing. Again, I cover this in my guide.

OK, success - thanks.
...but for some reason whenever I select HCencoder, it always goes to Quenc for the video encoding

So, to force it to go to HCenc, I removed Quenc from the folder, and voila - it went to HCenc, and it is now encoding!
Kind of weird though, how it kept defaulting to Quenc...

The audio was missing on the project. It have pass and not have been crashed with ffmpeg, probably due to my update for the latest version of ffmpeg.

I was having a warning that audio lench is like 30min, and movie was more than 2hours. i click ok to continue for having a complete log.

@8ternity

Let's try to make some order.

About FFmpeg update. You can. But results can be unpredictable: I usually test the updated sw for a while before releasing them into AVStoDVD.

Movie #1 Try #1: from the log file, FFmpeg did not crash, because FFmpeg was not used. There's a problem in decoding video source. Have you installed Haali and ffdshow?

Movie #2 Try #1: yes, ffmpeg+aften had a problem in encoding audio track. Why have you changed from default wavi+aften to ffmpeg+aften as AC3 encoder? If also wavi+aften fails you can try with QuEnc. Many users had success in converting blu-ray audio using QuEnc (right Adub ).

ah yes.... thank you. Should read FAQ first

One more question related to encoders, please: Is it possible to choose a custom matrix in either Quenc or HCenc? I've tried to modify the matrix choices in both, but it keeps defaulting back to the MPEG std.

thanks!
