Thanks, Koepi, for the proposals. I never ignored your proposals before, but I was trying to understand them, as well as the mechanisms they were based on. I considered all that you said about altCC and I'll try to adjust my program to use the linear scaled curve, using all the info I can find in the StatsReader thread.

Thanks again, and sorry if I tired you.

Updated to version 1.20.

I've just released XviD Stats Viewer v1.20.

Here's the change log:
----------------------
+ Added linear curve compression (It's quite accurate. Just some small fixes needed to achieve optimal result).
+ Added auto load button.
+ Added start & end frame range selection (and auto load).
* Updated the motion engine. Now it's the same as NanDub's.
* Alt. Curve Compression type is not suggested, as it cannot be determined by the stats file.
* Many bugs fixed.
- Removed the 2nd pass simulation, since it was completely flawed. It's very difficult to write the actual routine. (It's in 2pass.c file and I must convert it to Visual Basic.)

I'm waiting for your comments, bug reports or suggestion.

And the Official XviD StatsViewer Site has just been created. Latest versions can be found there. The guide is still under construction.

I've just released XviD Stats Viewer v1.30.

Here's the change log:
----------------------
+ Added some more info on the results of the linear curve compression.
* Updated the linear curve compression formula. Up to 10 passes are used to achieve desired AVI size.
* Updated the minimum I & P-frame calculation formulas. Many thanks to Koepi for this one.

Well, you should test the scaling formula now .

Instead to complain how EVIl we 31337 14D5 are, don't waste our and your time writing that _crap_ (yes, you read right, what's that for a post?).

READ the guides, read the forum, read the xvid help file...

After you read all available and bsic information you can start asking.

But simply complaining that we don't implement a chip with our knowldge in your head or that we don't magically beam over enlightenment is more than rotten.

All the information is there, in various guides, the tooltips in the codec-setup and in various threads on the forum, so don't complain about noob-unfriendliness.

Just hit the "load defaults"-button and encode! It's good enough! The "advanced" stuff and stats-readers and the like are for people who enjoy playing around with them. If you don't have the neccessary background-knowledge you'll only get worse results playing with tools you don't fully understand. It is precisely you that the simple mode was made for, enjoy it!

@neo_born

Can you please tell us (and enlighten all those helpless people wandering around in oblivion in the XviD board) about where else you can find a more active and useful forum in which "all" the codec/encoding related problems are discussed as widely and with full support of the developers themselves as here?!!

That's merely pointless complaint as Koepi remarked too!

Updated.

I've just released XviD Stats Viewer v1.40. Now it can save a text report of the analysis, as well as info about each frame (optional).

Updated!!!!

Here's version 1.50 of the XviD Stats Viewer. I've added support for B-Frame reporting using Koepi's 14/11/2002 build and later releases. Now, all I need to do is to update the linear downscale formula to support B-Frames.

It seems a cool program and helpfull.

I'm a noob in Xvid encoding, so I tried to understand all of this tool.

Bug fixed!

I should test my programs better before releasing them. I'm sorry about the really fucked up framesize distribution graph. Here's the fixed compilation.

BTW, all previous versions have been removed from this post. If you want any of them, just visit StatsViewer's website.

Alt CC question

I read Iago's walkthrough on using Xvid and he said to disable AltCC. Is this information out of date, or is it still best to disable AltCC.

I have been using linear scaling for long time with good results but it's up to you.

I have been using it on med aggro as well... I was just shocked when his walk through said to disable it.

Kastro i don't know was that post for me but if you do linear scaling it means you disable Altcurve scaling. I have got much better results without Altcurve scaling.

I want to ask how to use linear scaling, but i'll use the search button first

@kastro68

Don't get shocked , because if you follow the guide then it means you are already using "internal linear scaling" (for external linear scaling, you have to use Koepi's great StatsReader): disable Alternative Curve System and set high/low values to 0/0 in the "Two Pass" tab and you get a linear scaled curve.

regards,
iago

I've a little problem, the program doesn't start and return this error : "Class not registered. You must install these file: MSSTDFMT.DLL"

Note: in my pc i've installed the last VB6 runtimes, and the TABCTL32.OCX file

Have you ever seen this error? Thanks

@iago

I was just concerned because koepi wrote somewhere that it is usually best to leave xvid on its default settings...I think koepi also said not to cap the quantizer values. Just some inconsistencies with what others recommend.

I think Koepi also wrote that using statsreader for ext 2 pass produces very similar results to using xvids internal scaling.

Well i haven't been quite up to date with Xvid for a while because of exams.

Thanks for the advice.
