    So far I have always tried to stay away from AVS+ because my main computer does not support SSE2, and the official AVS+ builds require it. But a few days ago qyot27 (from the Doom9 forum) made a build which does not require SSE2, and of course I jumped on it...

    You are right, it all comes down to installing AVS+ and add a Prefetch command to the end of the script. Should be easy to support this under AVStoDVD.

    I have no idea if MrC has any plans to support AVS+ in the near future. In the meantime it would be easy enough for me to update my FF_VBR and HC_Mod plugins to optionally add a Prefetch command to the end of the generated AVS script. Give me a couple of days...

    For maximum speed gain of course you will want to add a "SetMTMode.avsi" to the "plugins+" autoload folder. Also the plugins in the "AVStoDVD\Lib" folder are old versions which work with ancient CPUs. For best speed users will have to replace at least mvtools2.dll and RemoveGrainS.dll with newer versions (RGTools.dll instead of RemoveGrainS.dll).

    I will report back after I have come up with something...


    Cheers

    Alright, this was an easy one...

    Download the latest versions of my A2D plugins here:
    https://files.videohelp.com/u/172211/Manolito_s%20A2D%20Plugins.7z

    Changes:
    For the FF_VBR and the HC_Mod plugins I added an option to append a Prefetch() command to the end of the AVS script generated by AVStoDVD. This is for users of AVS+ who want to automatically enable multithreading.


    Cheers

    AFAIK your player (software or hardware) is responsible for this. In the setup of the player users can specify if they want to see subs by default or not.

    From the FAQ section of the AVStoDVD manual:
    Q5.4 I have completed a project with authored subtitles (NOT hard encoded), seemingly without errors, but subtitles are not displayed when playing the DVD. Why?
    A: If you are using a standalone DVD player, activate subtitles with your remote control. If you are using a software player (i.e. Media Player Classic), you have to explicitly tell the player to display subtitles.
    Q5.7 Is it possible to have the subtitles always on, instead of using the DVD remote control to activate them?
    A: No, unfortunately it is not possible, because BatchMux (the wrapper to MuxMan) does not make available that capability. Anyway there is always the possibility to use the 'Hard Encoding' option in Title Edit - Subtitles.
    An external solution is to use DVDShrink in re-Authoring mode.

    Cheers

    I looked in the folder, all of the templates are still there.

    I then uninstalled 2.87 & reinstalled 2.86

    The menu now works, but AVI synth runs sluggish ( & when closing down the preview window the program crashes) & "Open Previous title" no longer works.
    I have version 2.8.7 as a first time user.When creating the DVD menu, I also get "Error 35602 Key Is Not Unique In Collection". Is there no solution except look for a previous version?

    A different menu software would most likely be DVDStyler. The general purpose is very similar to AVStoDVD, but with an emphasis on menu creation. For transcoding it can only use FFmpeg (but High Quality VBR modes are also supported), so maybe this is all you need. But of course you can also use AVStoDVD just for transcoding (specify muxed MPEG2 file as the output). Then use this MPEG2 file as the source in DVDStyler and make sure to specify "Copy -No Transcoding" in the options.

    Good luck

  10. When I convert this to DVd with AVSTODVD the subtitles are not picked up. ConvertxtoDVD has subtitles on its DVd of this file. Why would this be?

    AFAIK the log is always written to the output folder. Are you sure that you ticked "Save current Settings as Default" in the "Preferences" window?

    For Subs I really cannot help you, subs are not my turf. But in any case you should post your AVStoDVD log file here...

    currently AVStoDVD does not support tx3g subtitles format. As explained in the Help section (How to use it > Main Window > Title Properties) the supported formats are:

    - SubRip Text-Based File (*.srt)
    - Scenarist Sub Script (*.sst)
    - IfoEdit Subpicture File (*.sup)
    - VobSub IDX/SUB File (*.idx)
    - Sub Station Alpha File (*.ssa;*.ass)
    - MicroDVD File (*.sub; *.txt)
    So, if you want to use AVStoDVD to convert and author your mp4 file, I suggest you to demux the tx3g subs and convert them to a more popular format (e.g. srt) and add them to AVStoDVD project.
