    I wanted to tryout DePan-plugin and installed it.
    I get an output using AVsP (preview) But I need a review on my script.

    1. Where exactly do I place the 'Depan' lines in my script and are they correct?
    (position of my Depan-lines are in 'Red'):

    LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\MSharpen.dll")
    loadplugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\depan.dll")
    Avisource("C:\DVfootage.avi")
    edeintted = last.AssumeBFF().SeparateFields().SelectEven().EED I2(field=-1)
    TDeint(order=0,edeint=edeintted)
    Lanczos4Resize(480,384)
    MSharpen(threshold=20,strength=90,mask=false,highq =true)
    ConvertToYV12()

    mdata=DePanEstimate
    DePanStabilize(data=mdata,cutoff=0.5,dxmax=60,dyma x=30)
    #dxmax=left/right default=60
    #dymax=top/bottom default=30
    2. Because Depanning uses prev+next frames to calculate an average still image and fill in
    missing parts at the sides (am I right?)
    Could I loose some of the original video on the sides in the result?

    I hope I used the lines correctly.
    And I am having trouble understanding the variables.

    Thanks.

    Haven't used DePan, so I won't comment on the script, but I have used other image stabilizers in the past, and yes, you will lose some image area when stabilizing. How much depends on how much work has to be done to get a smooth image. If your camera was on a tripod and you are smoothing out a little bit of sticking, you won't lose much. If you had a hand-held camera you could lose 5 - 10%.

    I haven't been too impressed by the so-called image repair that most of these do, and usually end up having to zoom in slightly to hide the edges that are affected.

    Wich stabelizers do you reccomend?
    I think I'm gonna hunt downthat deshake plugin and see if that is a lot more friendlier to use than DePan.
    Cuz seriously I'm getting dizzy reading all those nerd-
    math-abbreviations I dont understand anyway.

  4. @20/20,

    Your script looks correct. Does it give an error?

    Hi Wilbert.

    It doesnt give en error. But it takes a long time to render just 1 frame though.
    And the result frame shows black borders. if they would be filled up automatically (if thats possible) that'll be great. But i'seems it's not the case with my script.

    Thanks anyway.
