Problem with opening avi

Hi there,

Sorry if this already being discussed here, I just do not know how to put all this in search field (my English isnot that good).

When I am trying to open avi file with Gknot, it open the "FramNo" window. But there is the problem: I just see two thirds of gray and lower third green. I cannot see video and because of that I do not know what to use for cropping and since I encode TV-footage, I need to crop invisible fields - it's just a mess - I do not need it in DivX file. Anybody can help how to about it?

Other question. When I used GK 0.27 with DivX5.0.1 it would take only 17 hours on my machine to code up 1 hour long programm. Now with GK0.28 and DivX5.1 it takes about 32 hours for the same programm. Anybody knows why?

Gknot uses Microsoft Windows AVI services to open .avifiles, and certain types of .avi files may have trouble being opened. You might create a short .avs script that uses Microsoft DirectShow, and open the .avs file instead. For example:
Quote:
DirectShowSource("file.avi",audio=false)
DivX 5.0 and DivX 5.1 use very different compression methods. If you want a speed similar to 5.0, then set your encoding method to "Standard." This issue has been discussed in great length in the DivX Encoding forum.

Thank you for answering. It really helped. I am not so much into AviSynth, so for me ANY help here is a HUGE help.

And about encoding - thank you, now I know where to look further.

Well jggimi,

It works to open file, but now I have another problem - didn't have it when opening plain *.avi - If I open file through *.avs, then after first pass with DivX VirtualDub get an error saying "Access violation" - so, there is something wrong with access to the file or I should look for solution in another direction?

I don't know why the first pass would work and the second pass would not, since both are getting the same video served via AviSynth. If there were some problem with the nested .avs scripts, I would think your first pass would fail. Perhaps the first pass failed but you didn't notice?

Please post your _GKnot.log file, just in case there's something in it that might help diagnose the trouble.

The exact error message says:
========================================
Avisynth open failure:
Avisynth read error:
Avisynth: caught an access violation at 0x00f2f3c0,
attempting to read from 0x00000004
(c:\tdj-tbp-3-eng2.avs, line 19)
========================================

Using two avs's open with c:\tdj-tbp-3-eng.avs wich is simply:
========================================
DirectShowSource("tdj-tbp-3-eng.avi",audio=false,"YUY2")
========================================

Then I do all neccesary settings in GK and save as another avs with name c:\tdj-tbp-3-eng2.avs which is here:
========================================

So, in result I have two _GKnot.log files
This is first one:

It gets stuck after Compressibility check. If I turn it off, then it gives error message after first pass starting second pass. It seems like Avisynth doesn't release the original file yet when second pass is trying to work with it, but may be I just do not understand.

I would be really thankfull if you would help me unscrumble all this - i am not guru on these technologies, but have to have those files encoded one two times a month. Thanks.
