    Hi manolito I have a little issue. As you may remember I used to use ConvertXtoDvd to pop 2 pal movies on a DVD 4.7GB which when played by via my bluray player on my Old 26 " tv at 1080i (its max output) its looks very well and very good just as a up-scaled commercial DVD. The thing is on my new tv which is a 32" 1080p these conversions looks very pixelated especially in the darker scenes. ( I do understand that HD is Superior ect but I just want my conversion to look as close to the way the commercial or even they do on the 1080i set).

    Now I think its down to the lower bitrate CXD uses for scenes that are darker as some of them are below 1mb so I think that why its pixelated and is a limitation of that programme Im thinking that avs2dvd with give better results in this area in the way it encodes?




    Now I have since been using AVS2DVD for my other workflows as I do find it gives better quality. So I am thinking about using it to do my encoding for 2 movies on a dvd 4.7 usuing the Hc Encoder as I think this is far superior to what CXD uses. so Im hoping it will give better bit-rates through the movies especially the darker scenes and help with the pixelation.

    The issue is I was having issues with AVS2DVD halfway through encoding and when i did get it to encode some parts of the final output would freeze when played back in vlc and the audio would cut in an out at times as well.

    Now I have since did a complete uninstall of avstoDVD and all filters (including your plugins) and upgraded to a new fresh install of version 2.8.6. Im still getting this issue, I have not installed any of your stuff yet all is still at the defaults.

    AT the moment my workflow is as planned:

    - 2 separate DVDS Movies being ripped to MPEG files via VOB2MPG.
    - The two Mpeg files are added to avstodvd and the

    - In the properties of each video file "auto video set up" & "video direct stream copy" are both unchecked so it fits the disc. And the output is selected as "Muxed Mpeg files" with a custom dvd size of 4300 as I use these in DVD styler for a menu template after I check all is playing well.


    Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    I remember we had this conversation a while ago, and I will tell you the same thing I told you then:

    IMO it is a very bad idea to squeeze 2 full movies on one DVD 5 blank. If the combined duration is 4 hours then you will end up with a video bitrate of 2300 kbps. This is simply not enough for getting good quality when compressing to MPEG2. DVD blanks are cheap these days, I see no reason to put 2 movies on one blank.

    If you watch the result on a BluRay player then why don't you convert the DVDs to the AVC/AAC format in an MKV or MP4 container? With this compression format you will get excellent quality at bitrates well below 1500 kbps, so you could get 3 or 4 movies on one DVD 5 blank. The only drawback would be that there will be no menus (at least using free software - except for MultiAVCHD).

    But back to your original issue. To get better quality at dark static areas HC has two parameters which assign more bits to those areas. These are the *AQ and the *LUMGAIN parameters. In AVStoDVD you can edit these parameters under the "Video" tab. I normally use a value of 2 for both parameters, but you might want to go higher for those very low bitrates.

    I never had the problem that playback of HCenc encodes would freeze in VLC. Maybe try MPC-HC instead...

    After a fresh installation of AVStoDVD please make absolutely sure to set up your preferred DirectShow Filters so LAVFilters is used for all formats. If you forget this then there is a fat chance that you will end up with audio sync problems.


    Cheers

    Hi manolito
    Have you ever tried the combination of installing the Lav filters but not adjusting their priority?
    For common type like mp4/avc the MS filters get used but using your DSS2 mod to A2DSource.avsi also,
    I have not had any problems.

    The LAV filters/splitter get used for webm/vp9 and similar which Windows 10 does not natively decode.

    I've been using version 2.85 for about 4 months like this with no problems at all

    I started to investigate this because with LAV filters and no DSS2 mod, I get "source mismatch" in HCenc which bothered me.

    I did try using the Preferred filter too so LAV and DDS2 mod were used for everything, and it also worked fine.
    Since it did not seem to offer anything over the method I've been using for four months I undid the preferred filter
    and put it back to defaut.

    Thanks that seems to have solved the issue of the playback I has the filters set to microsoft for some reason probably due to the fresh install maybe.

    Yes I am understanding you know on the subject of squeezing 2 movies on one dvd 4.7GB disc (and to think of all the discs I have converted in the last year like this makes me wanna cry ) but at least I can make sure future conversions don't go this way with lower bitrate.

    If I used 8.5gb discs would This improve quality for mpeg dvds as it would have more space so less compression would be needed for my double feature discs?


    If you watch the result on a BluRay player then why don't you convert the DVDs to the AVC/AAC format in an MKV or MP4 container? With this compression format you will get excellent quality at bitrates well below 1500 kbps, so you could get 3 or 4 movies on one DVD 5 blank. The only drawback would be that there will be no menus (at least using free software - except for MultiAVCHD).
    This Never even crossed my mind. Would they be of good quality in the AVC/AAC Format? I like the idea of 3 or 4 movues on a disc with a menu. what programs is best to use for the conversion, maybe handbrake? and what settings/profile would you suggest to use?


    Thanks

    Frankly, I don't know. My main computer runs Win XP, and the Preferred DirectShow Filters issue does not exist there. Whichever filters are installed last will get priority over previously installed filters.

    I started investigating these DS filter issues after some Youtube downloads with dimensions that were not mod4 resulted in broken conversions. Replacing DirectShowSource.dll with DSS2Mod fixed it, so I started using DSS2Mod from there. The issues with Microsoft DS filters surfaced after a couple of users complained about audio sync errors when using the M$ filters under Win7 and above. The cause are source files with orphaned B-frames at the start which are handled correctly by LAV and ffms2 (and of course by Donald Graft's source filters), but not by the M$ filters. Since then the universal recommendation is to disable all M$ DS filters and replace them with LAVFilters (or maybe ffdshow).

    Yes of course. This would double your video bitrate so your encodes would certainly look much better.

    For AVC (H.264) the preferred conversion method is the CRF method (constand rate factor). This is a quality based VBR method so you have no control over the final output size. The default CRF value is 23, but this gives only medium quality. For DVD conversions I use CRF 20, for highest quality you can go down to 18 or 17, but this is almost overkill. You need to make your own tests.

    There are many free GUIs for X264, but AFAIK the only one which creates menus is MultiAVCHD. I have no experience at all with this program, so you need to check it out yourself. Otherwise one of the easiest GUIs is HandBrake followed by RipBot264. MeGUI and StaxRip are more powerful but have a steeper learning curve. One of my personal favorites is dmMediaConverter. Basically this is just a GUI frontend for FFmpeg, but it is extremely easy to use and delivers great quality.

    ok I think i will try out the same methos Im using only I will change from 4.7GB siscs to 8.5GB discs, as I said I like the idea of using the AVC (H.264) method but it seems a lot of steps and my pc takes a long tome to convert the footage to mkv so sticking with mpeg sems to be better for me at the moment.

    so typically what bitrate can I be looking at for 4 hours on a 8.5GB disc?

    according to wikipedia on DVD information:

    "Professionally encoded videos average a bitrate of 45 Mbit/s with a maximum of 78 Mbit/s in high-action scenes. Encoding at less than the max bitrate (like this) is typically done to allow greater compatibility among players,[14] and to help prevent buffer underruns in the case of dirty or scratched discs"

    I think 4 hours is more satifacty on an 8.5GB disc than trying to squeeze them onto a 4.7GB disc. Also in your opinion what bitrate is the minium interms of quality that you would use? From what I read on line anything below 3MB (3000kp/s) is regarding as useless and leads to pixelation so what value would be more than acceptable to use?

    Thanks

    According to my DVD bitrate calculator you will end up with a video bitrate of 4438 kbps which is a good value for a DVD.

    It is impossible to set a threshold for the video bitrate for good quality. This depends a lot on the source characteristics, i.e. the compressibility of the source. A clip which contains only talking heads without any action scenes is much easier to compress than an action movie. For the talking heads clip you may get excellent quality at a bitrate below 2000 kbps, for the action movie even 5000 kbps might not be enough for a conversion without noticeable artifacts.

    Some clips can be filtered to make them more compressible without compromising the quality too much. Removing some grain or applying some temporal softening can work wonders.

    Thanks Manolito for the advice. I will try out the conversion using 8.5GB discs at a bitrate of 4438kbps as i think i would probably get about that for a single movie on one dvd 4.7GB Disc. As long it xlears the pixelation in the darker scenes when watched back on the 1080p tv it should be perfect for me, as I said im very happy with teh way the comercial DVDs upscale so if i can get my conversion close to that It be nice and good enough.

    also I like the bitrate calculator you are using I must download that and keep it for future use. A handy little tool to have indeed my friend.

    Thanks

    Just an update here. I got hold of some 8.GB discs and did a few conversions with bitrate around the 4500kbps setting and all seems to be better. Ther are are few small block/pixel effects at some ery very dark scenes but that maybe down to the scaler in either the player or the tv possibly, overall using the larger disc has greatly improved everything overall.

    Thanks

    Anyone still interested in High Quality conversions to DVD using FFmpeg?

    My FFmpeg VBR plugins use XHQ parameters developped mainly by a Doom9 forum user Fishman0919. Just a few days ago another Doom9 forum member GMJCZP posted some very interesting parameters for FFmpeg HQ encodes, and I would really like some folks to test and compare the results when using these different parameters.

    To make testing easy I wrote a quick and dirty test bench script which can be downloaded from here:
    http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1808832#post1808832

    Please test and post your comments...


    Cheers
    manolito


    //EDIT//
    Made a new test bench script, please redownload...

    I have a few conversion projects coming up and I would like to test your new FFMPEG set up out. For some reason im still having issue with Hcenc so I will probably have to go back to FFMPEG. As we discussed before I will be putting 2 movies on a dvd 8.5GB disc and if I remember correctly you told me that AVS2DVD will do a better quality conversion over ConvertXdvd even when usimg your vbr plugin. so I think i will stick with this software.

    To make things easier I have done a complete unistall of avs2dvd and a fresh install, so do I just reinstall your FFMPEG VBR plugin and work from there?

    Thanks

    Yes, just make sure to use the latest plugin version from here:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/avstodvd/files/avstodvd_addons/Plugins/ff_vbr%20(ffmp...0VBR%20modes)/

    (And don't forget to set your DirectShow filters to LAV... )

    I have no idea if there were any significant changes in the FFmpeg MPEG2 encoder recently. I think the version which comes with the A2D installer is fine. Of course you can update FFmpeg, but the latest versions require that you add the AVStoDVD\Lib folder to your path environment variable.

    The latest FFmpeg version which works without any trouble is this one from July 2016:
    https://sourceforge.net/projects/ffmpegwindowsbi/files/2016-07-18/ffmpeg.static.2016-0...e.zip/download

    hi all, ran into a problem today, so the file I am trying to convert is in sync before conversion, but after conversion with either the audio delay fix ticked or unticked the file always ends up out of sync after conversion, one o the logs is below, help greatly appreciated thanks

    And once again...

    Look here:
    https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/277852-AVStoDVD-Support-Thread/page106#post2460122

    Didn't you see the warning which AVStoDVD issues on the first run after installation?


    Cheers

  19. Is it possible to enable PLAY ALL without a menu for multiple titles so I can keep pressing next chapter until end of disc?

    Multiple titles but no DVD menu? I think this is determined by the player and they're not all the same.
    My 10 year old Samsung has a small menu where I can select the other titles, don't think it goes to them automatically.

    I suggest to use DVDStyler for this, for stuff like this it is way more flexible than AVStoDVD...

    You can delete the menu, then add titles "as chapters". If you already converted your sources with AVStoDVD, no problem, DVDStyler can use them without reencoding.

    DVDStyler only uses FFmpeg for transcoding, but my 2-pass VBR plugin is integrated transparently. The plugin has an Extremely High Quality 2-pass mode which comes very close to HCenc (some folks say that it surpasses it). Something every user needs to test for herself...

    But you can easily use AVStoDVD for transcoding and use DVDStyler just for authoring. Tell AVStoDVD to create a muxed MPEG2 file, import these MPEG2 files into DVDStyler and specify "Copy" for video and audio.


    Cheers
