AVIsynth v1.0 Beta 6???

Hi

Does anyone know if this is an offical version.

I found this version on my work computer, I generally install alot of tools/programs for testing. And some program must of installed this file.

When I put 'Version' on a single line is an avs file, it displays v1.0 Beta 6.. I also had some issues with b5 where it would gen an access violation on some clips, after copying b6 to my home comp. Those clips don't gen access violation anymore.

Also, have anyone had a problem with VirtualDub where when they loaded an avs for encoding it said something about 'Empty FPU state'

There are no "official" versions, because Ben is no longer active and several groups are making releases. I seem to recall someone made a fix to beta 5 and released it as beta 6. I suppose the closest thing to official we have now is videotools.net.

VirtualDub reports when it detects that an emms instruction has been omitted. It probably means one of the filters loaded in your AVS is MMX optimized but the author has forgotten to reset the multimedia state. It's not likely in VirtualDub itself because Avery never forgets stuff like that.

No, I haven't, but there have been a few reported problems possibly related to this. From your post I'm not sure which version of Avisynth you were running when you got this. Could you say?

I was searching the avisynth egroups just yesterday unsuccessfully trying to get MaskedMix from mpeg2dec working and saw a b7 version as well. I'll just quote the message in case there's any interest:

Subject: Avisynth 1.0beta7 available - includes ConvertFPS filter

Thanks to Edwin who has given me write-access to Avisynth on Sourceforge.
I have added some of the fixes and improvements that were recently posted
here:

- Resize filter fix (EMMS) from Avery
- RGB fixes from Brad
- Brad's Greyscale() and RGBAdjust() filters
- Blur() and Sharpen() with two arguments, also from Brad, but
with the second argument optional.

Also, I have included a new filter called ConvertFPS() which allows a
smooth frame rate conversion between NTSC and PAL.

Binary and source can be downloaded from

http://members.home.com/hansenjo1/avisynth-1.0b7.zip
http://members.home.com/hansenjo1/av...urce-1.0b7.zip

A description of the ConvertFPS() filter is here:

http://members.home.com/hansenjo1/ConvertFPS.html

I will see that these releases will appear in Sourceforge at some point.
The main stumbling block right now is the presence of a closed-source
component.

Maybe Edwin can mirror these versions at videotools for now?

Cheers,
Ole

Thanks for the info guys

trbarry, I got the 'Empty FPU state' using beta 5, but once I install beta 6 the problem was gone.

The filters I was using in the script wasn't anything special, I had something like:

AVISource("clip.avi")
ResampleAudio(44100)
Crop(2,2,716,572)
BicubicResize(b=0,c=1,480,576)

This would give me the error, but if I took our the Crop and Resize it worked fine.

As I mentioned, the BicubicResize() in beta 5 is missing an "emms" call.

You didn't mention it was "BicubicResize()"

True. The "As I mentioned" referred to the fact that I had already posted that one of the filters must have been missing an "emms" call, which accounts for the "empty FPU state" message.

As this thread was about new versions of avisynth.I will go on about it.
I was looking in sourceforge and I've found all modifications that were reported here, in the cvs,more precisely most of them in effects.cpp .Those releases that has been pointed are from one of the developers page.
I was looking specially the RgbAdjust that has similar name to neuron2 filter and in a fast sight it is has also a similar behaviour; except for a fourth parameter that I didn't understand what is the use of it.
Maybe any of the developers that come to this forum could take a look and explain us how to use any of the new filters that has been added.

Thanks Arda

Hi,

I spent hours trying to understand why my bicubicresize refused to work (with the 'FPU' thing error) before I saw this thread

Can someone point me to a link where I could find these Beta6 or Beta7 versions? (the above links don't work anymore).

Thanx,
Steph.

Somone please point me to the above mention sourceforge project...and is there a place, where there are always newest binaries of these more or less unofficial versions available? Is 1.0b7a the latest for now?

AVISynth at sourceforge. Also look for SAVE-oe (new development of DVD2AVI)

Thanx...not much info there...

Any place where I can get more info (don't mind binaries) of these AviSynth 1.0 beta6/7 etc. versions?

About Save-oe...I am following the dvd2avi sourceforge thread...there seems to be more info...

@Chibi Jasmin
You are right there is not too much information there.As you read in my above post two months ago
I asked help for more information and as nobody answered I had watched more carefully the sources
and could in few words summarize this:

The bug in Bicubic resize with emms call was fixed.

A new filter RGBAdjust has been included (obviously it just work in rgb mode.
Ex:
ConvertToRGB() #if you aren't already working in rgb
RgbAdjust(0.94,0.97,1,0) # the fourth parameter is for alpha channel
ConvertToYUY2() # if you need to convert.

A Greyscale filter has beed added. It just work in YUY2 .To use:
just
Greyscale

The most important change has been done in Sharpen-Blur filter
Many people has reported problems with it in avisynth 5 too.

The new Sharpen filter now includes two parameters ; vertical and horizontal
so if you write something like this
Sharpen (-0.5,0.4)
# you are blurring in vertical direction and sharpenning in horizontal direction
it is interesting to play with that values.I must confess I don't like too much how it works but
by now it is the only one sharp,blur filter we have for avisynth in yuy .
Besides they have included a rgb24 mode so I think it works correctly for some programams
that need that.
Unluckly there exists still a bug in AdjustFocusH (for developers) in width loop when you
work in yuy ;it works correctly in rgb.The bugs creates a strange line in the right side of
the frame.Using it before cropping you can cut that line.But if you can compile avisynth
(I have tried and couldn't),make some test with the following line (line 1517,revision1.7)

q[vi.width*2-4] = ScaledPixelClip(q[0] * center_weight + (yy + q[vi.width*2-2])
If I am not wrong the problem is there.Maybe Dividee could help us,he has released a
binary dll somedays ago.
There is also a ConvertFPS filter but I haven't test it at all.
It is not too much, if you have more details or new information please let us know.

I'm a little confused by these version numbers too. The last version in the CVS tells "1.0 beta 7d" with the "Version" script.

Thanks ARDA, this line was indeed to blame, the correct line is:
q[vi.width*2-4] = ScaledPixelClip(q[vi.width*2-4] * center_weight + (yy + q[vi.width*2-2]) * outer_weight);

I attach my binary, which is the same as the one I posted some days ago, with the AdjustFocusH fix (Sharpen & Blur).

The other modifications from the CVS are:
- Fixed Dissolve (again)
- Convenience: Crop accepts negative arguments for width and height, interpreted as distances from the right and bottom borders (ex: Crop(20,20,-20,-20) crops 20 pixels from each side)
- Minor bug fixed in parameter checking for Sharpen.

Also included is msvcr70.dll, I think you may need it since it's compiled with MSVC7.
