Thanks my friend. I installed the new AVS2DVD version. I tried your script out and yes it is a lot better than before but in the panning shots its as if it jumps slightly. you can see this in your converted clipped at 00.08 time when played back on vlc player. I'm not sure if this is maybe a error in my installation that's causing this or the script but since its in the converted file you did I am thinking its maybe the script.
I think we know for sure the framerate of these source files are 23.976 so if we can get to 25fps smoothly I would say we has accomplished this. do I need to check or uncheck the "use pal speed up for progessive NTSC Film to Pal" in the options?

The result depends entirely on how well the duplicates are removed. FDecimate is probably not the best solution, you may get better results using TDecimate.
I have attached 2 files using either TDecimate(mode=0,cycleR=3,cycle=5) or TDecimate(mode=7,rate=23.976). I think that both look better than the FDecimate version.
The "use PAL speedup" option does not really matter here, because when your source is a 59.94 fps clip then PAL speedup will not be used by AVStoDVD anyways. To get the PAL speedup you need to edit your AVS script and add the line "AssumeFPS("pal_film", sync_audio=true).SSRC(48000)" at the end.
Thanks again, yes I agree both the TDecimate methods look a lot better than the FDecimate .
I have tried both and they work really well but I am aimng to use the the TDecimate(mode=7,rate=23.976) method as it seems more easier for me to understand how it works and what its doing. i have also unchecked the pal speed up in the AVS2DVD preferences as you mentioned it doesn't matter so theres no point on checking it anyway if Im using "AssumeFPS("pal_film", sync_audio=true).SSRC(48000)" at the end. I will continue along using this method and see how they turn out but so far so good and Thanks to you for that I do appreciate your time and effort.
so just to confirm my script will look like this for sources reporting bck as 23.976fps:
Audio = FFAudioSource("C:\Users\IntelVPro\Desktop\sample1. mp4", track=-1)
Video = FFVideoSource("C:\Users\IntelVPro\Desktop\sample1. mp4", track=-1, seekmode=0)
Video = Video.ConvertToYV12()
Video = Video.Spline36Resize(720,576)
Video = Video.TDecimate(mode=7,rate=23.976)
#PALSpeedUp: using AssumeFPS() to upsize FPS
Now as for a separate matter I have did a complete uninstall of 2.83.4 and a reinstall of the new AVS2DVD Release 2.8.5 final version and reinstalled your FFmpeg Vbr plugin I think its the updated on from post #3217 (Link is http://www28.zippyshare.com/v/YKGhbfmL/file.html), it does not have a mplex option in the bat file but as you said I don't need this has its now built into AVS2DVD v2.8.5. Is this the correct version of your plugin for the new final release?
In post #3268 you also metion "AVStoDVD comes with an older version of FFmpeg (2.2.3 from 2014) which is not really up to date, but it does the job" so should I update this version and if so how?
also you metiuoned about "For FFmpegSource AVStoDVD now uses the C-Plugin by qyot27, but it ships with an outdated version. You should update it using the version from this post:
I spotted your comment in that link #2307 and downloaded the "FFMS2 C-plugin 1140+101" So to intsall this do I just copy the three files FFMS2.avsi, ffms2.dll, ffmsindex.exe from the 32 bit folder to the folder AVS2DVD\lib and replace the three thats in this folder with the new ones?
I think then That is it if all is correct, I have moved correctly to v2.8.5 and we have setup everything and gathered the scripts to work with all the various sources files from the recorder.
Yes, your script looks fine. (There are more TDecimate modes you can play with, e.g. mode 2, but in most cases mode 7 should work well).
You have the latest FF_VBR plugin version, and Mplex is no longer in it because AVStoDVD now uses Mplex by itself.
Upgrading the FFmpeg version is something you have to decide for yourself. I have no idea if the MPEG2 encoder got any improvements during the last couple of years. If you decide to update, here are a few tips:
1. You will always need a 32-bit static version of FFmpeg. The Zeranoe builds are fine.
2. The current FFmpeg builds do not work under WinXP. If you need WinXP compatability, use the version I have linked to below..
3. The current FFmpeg builds will crash under AVStoDVD unless you add the "AVStoDVD\Lib" folder to your Path variable. See this post: https://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1786007#post1786007
Since I still use XP I use the following FFmpeg build by rogerdpack:
Your ffms2 update is correct (actually you only need the file ffms2.dll, the others are not used).
So yes, you did move to the lastest AVStoDVD successfully. Actually I am waiting for a hotfix version since the stable release does have a few bugs, but MrC is a very busy man these days...
Just switched from XP to Windows 10. AVStoDVD used to hardcode forced subtitles in mkv files automatically. I liked this feature because I only embed subs for no- english parts and the subs would be added to the video it self, not the borders automatically. Now it won't even recognize them when trying to preview or convert to dvd. I've had the same problem with them before with xp but resolved it by uninstalling codec pacs. No codec pacs installed now. I can extract the subs and add them but can not adjust the location. Any help would be appreciated
Changing Video Time to a smaller number does NOT change the duration under general info but changing it to a larger number does. Is this a bug? I had to edit the save file to change the duration to the right number.

Thanks again my friend for all your help. My workflow is flowing very well.
AVS2DVD is really coming along and a great programme. I am starting now to appreciate its abilities over other programmes I used in the passed. Good Work Mr C and Very good inputs Manolito.
in the AVS2DVD preferences Audio section My bitrate is set to 192kbps. I this like an ac3 standard for dvds or should I increase it a little? Just out of curiosity what do you use on your settings.

For AC3 audio 192 kbps for stereo and 448 kbps for 6-ch is pretty much considered "Standard". Myself I normally use 224 kbps for stereo, mainly to have some headroom. My sources are mostly TV captures which have MP2 audio at 192 kbps. AC3 is considered to be a more effective codec than MP2, so using the same bitrate of 192 kbps already should give me enough slack. But I usually normalize my audio to a higher loudness than the original, so I want to play it safe and use a slightly higher audio bitrate. If you can really hear the difference between 192 and 224 is another question (I believe you cannot, at least not for usual film content).
