A Tutorial on AVSPMod

Hi everyone. Apart from the comprehensive tutorial contained in AVSPMod, is there a Tutorial for AVSPMod available that will take me through all the features step-wise at my lowly level?
I find that the ordinary Manual is is, well, overwhelming.

I would love to write macros and do short hand for the filters if I knew how.
I have no trouble in loading filters and running them but I do it laboriously by hand - I though AVSPMod was designed to be easier.
It is like travelling in a car without the engine - pointless!

Easier than what?

The AVSPMod manual is one of the best I've seen, it's very well structured. The author(s) put a lot of work into it. There are also lots of examples for macros.

Thanks for replying.
Easier than I find the official manual.
I am like many people who find technical manuals baffling until I actually use the machine when it becomes effortless.
Maybe I expect too much. I just thought there was a few Tutorials available like there are for MEGUI that would take the user through the nitty-gritty without too much technospeak.
However I will push on and I am sure it will become much clearer but I find it a very steep learning curve.

AVSP is supposed to make it easier to write and test scripts (and does so quite well). Using it requires at least basic knowledge of Avisynth scripting. Maybe that's what you have trouble with.

Thanks for writing back GROUCHO2004
Yes I have trouble with AVISynth scripts. When I open AVSPMod -
1) I have no trouble importing a movie (just drag-and-drop).
2) I have no trouble importing importing the filter eg I click [Edit] and [insert] the filter by selecting it

However, when I write the filter eg FluxSmooth, it does not recognise it. I have to put it in "" marks .

In all my readings, I have followed the schedule to the letter but for some reason it will not work. Can anyone help me out of this - I know it is a simple answer but I just don't get it.
Thanks.

Normally, you just type in the name of the filter(s) you want to use. After the first few characters, AvsP[Mod] will drop down a menu to complete the name if it's one it recognises.

Are you trying to [Edit]-[Insert]-[Insert plugin...]?
That will create a LoadPlugin call, and the name of the plugin dll to be loaded must be in quotes (which AvsP[Mod] will insert automatically). Note that plugins installed in the Avisynth plugins folder are loaded automatically by Avisynth, so no LoadPlugin call is necessary for them.

Thanks Gaviono and Goucho2004
I am using some external plugins. (I had hoped to use MCTemporalDenoise at one stage)
I do not know what I am doing wrong. I am doing what you say: [Edit] [Insert] [Insert Plugin] which works fine.
But when I write FluxSmooth instead of "FluxSmooth" AVSPMod does not recognise it.
I have not even reached the stage of loading and running *.avsi scripts. That is the next hurdle to overcome.

What do you mean by "does not recognise it"?
Do you get some sort of error message?

Thank you for your comments:
I got an error message but not anymore.
I have reinstalled AVSPMod v 2.2 as well as reinstalled AVISynth 2.58. Now when I write FluxSmooth and Undot it does not reject it anymore. At any rate, I can get it to work now and maybe I can get MEGUI to read my scripts. BTW, do you have any thoughts on some filters and settings to clean up old VHS tapes, which is really the whole aim of this?
I have yet to venture into the world scripts yet, but "slow and steady wins the race". I really find your help useful, thank you.

Scripts work in AVSPMod but not in MEGUI

I tried this script below in MEGUI hoping that it would accept FluxSmooth:
:
:
Import("E:\A Matter of Life and Death.avs")
#deinterlace
#crop
#resize
LoadPlugin("C:\AVI Synth LoadEX\LoadPluginEx.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\MEGUI\tools\avisynth_plugin\FluxSmooth.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\MEGUI\tools\avisynth_plugin\UnDot.dll")
Undot() # Minimal Noise
FluxSmooth()

I got the error message:
X AVISynth script error.
Script Error there is no function named "FluxSmooth"

I then tried the same script in AVSPMod by cut and paste and got the same error message.
However if I write the message myself in AVSPMod, it accepts it well.

So there is something in my writing of AVISynth where I am going wrong but what?
