    I use manolito plugins with AVStoDVD to squeeze as much as I can out of the encodes, including the very helpful 5.1 audio upmix from 2.0 channel audio sources, but I've never managed to get the 2-pass ffmpeg to work

    No matter what I change in the ff_vbr.bat it always uses 1-pass. Some say 1-pass is just as good as 2-pass especially using HCEnc but want to squeeze as much quality as I can from an encode to DVD for each scene and 2-pass does help adjusting the best bitrate for any given part of a project where 1-pass tries to do everything in one shot

    What settings need to be altered in the ff_vbr.bat to force 2-pass ffmpeg encoding regardless of source bitrate. I think it has something to do with source bitrate being high enough to not need 2-pass encoding on trying to read the BAT script, but I want to force 2-pass regardless

    SET Force 1-pass VBR=2
    SET Force 2-pass VBR=3

    The above settings still only do 1-pass

    Thanks

    Forcing encoding modes in the ff_vbr script was added later as an afterthought. Before adding these forced modes the decision which mode should be used was made automatically according to the video bitrate and the HQ flag for FFmpeg. Now a specific encoding mode can be forced unconditionally regardless of the bitrate or the HQ flag.

    The logic is like this:
    Since 1-pass VBR and 2-pass VBR are mutually exclusive, only one of them can be forced by setting the value higher than 0. If you want 2-pass VBR at Extreme HQ then the value for 1-pass VBR must be 0, and the value for 2-pass VBR must be 3.

    With your settings
    SET Force 1-pass VBR=2
    SET Force 2-pass VBR=3
    the script will branch to 1-pass mode and never even analyze the second line. The branching works like this:
    IF NOT [%Force 1-pass VBR%==[0 GOTO 1pass
    IF NOT [%Force 2-pass VBR%==[0 GOTO 2pass

    Do you think I should change the logic so if 2-pass has a value other than 0 then 2-pass should always have priority over 1-pass no matter if the value for 1-pass is not 0? I am not sure if this would be more intuitive for the users...

    In case you want to try it just edit the batch file and search for the branching commands. Then just reverse the order of these 2 lines so the 2-pass decision comes first.

    That makes sense if you think about it, I just assumed setting both to the highest values would force 2-pass encoding regardless

    I did try editing the BAT file to jump over 1-pass encoding and always goto 2-pass encoding, but could never get it to work as I expected

    You probably broke something in the batch script while trying to force 2-pass...

    I uploaded the latest ff_vbr script with the only change that now 2-pass VBR gets precedence over 1-pass if both modes are forced simultaneously. And I tested it, it works as expected... Just extract the batch file into your AVStoDVD\FFmpeg folder overwriting the existing file.

    Thanks for that, looking at your changes it looks easy now but I didn't realise each pass had its own 2-pass switch

  6. hi MrC, outstanding program!

    What should I do to enable an AVStoDVD DVD to play in an older DVD player? The disc works great in our BluRay player... but in the DVD player it always has never played the DVD and instead reports that it is dirty. It's not dirty. And our old DVD player isn't broken bc it works flawlessly with professional DVDs.

    I'm thinking that there must be some sort of delay or extra space that should be written in front of the dvd code for it to work in our old DVD player. Am I correct? Regardless, could you help me solve this problem?

    My dad bought a new 4K/HD video camera and it's important that the DVDs created work in old DVD players.

    Thank you MrC for this incredible work; it's wonderful!

  7. Simplest solution is get another DVD player from a thrift store, they are like $20. You can bring a DVD to test it there. Also use quality discs like Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden.

  8. It's a Verbatim DVD+R DL. Hmm... maybe our DVD player will only work with DVD-R? I'll research that.

    Thank you for your reply digicube.

    edit: the DL was set up correctly in the DISC size menu. (DVD-9)

    DVD+R are very picky in most DVD players, as you've found out

    DVD-R are much more compatible and should play is almost any DVD player, but some branded DVD players are very very select in what they play. Even original shop bought DVD can refuse to play in some brands. Sony are well know for being very paranoid in disc types

    As suggested, the cheap lower end DVD players will play pretty much anything you put in it, even really rubbish quality DVD-R media will play in the cheaper DVD players


    I personally have issues with DVD+R not playing but DVD-R very rarely fail to play on any DVD player, either a bad burn is the likely culprit or using cheap media. If you pay $10 for a 100 spindle DVDs there is a very good reason why its so cheap. I buy mid-range DVDs and a bad burn might be 1 in 50

    Also burn speed makes a BIG difference. Burn too fast and you may get problems such as stuttering or random pauses or even just stop and refuse to play at all. I burn x8 and no faster and never had any issues. Slow burn speeds give more time to write the disc and reduce the risk of bad burns. Burn quality is better than burn speed. It may take longer but better than having to burn it again

    ISOBurn is probably one of the best burn software on the market, even though its years old and hasn't been updated in a considerable time. Its accurate and concentrates on quality and making the DVD burn as correct as possible, which again helps reduce playback issues

  10. Thank you for your reply steptoe! hmm... I found out that older DVD players, that were built before DVD+Rs were around, have problems playing a DVD+R. To work around this we need to apply bitsetting to our DVD burner drive so that burned DVD+Rs can be seen as DVD-ROM instead of DVD+R.

    DVD-R discs don't have this needing-to-be-bitset problem. Read about bitsetting. (<starts in middle of linked videohelp post)

    Our PLDS DU-8A5LH DVD burner doesn't seem to be a drive that supports bitsetting, at least when using ImgBurn, so we will have to use DVD-R DL discs. That was easy.


    edit: here is how to bitset using ImgBurn (in order for ImgBurn's Tools>Drive option to be active I inserted the DVD+R DL disc that had been used...)

    Nope, bc, from what I've read, all DVD players support dual layer. How could 2+ hour long high quality DVD movies be made with only single layer... doesn't make sense to conversations I've read. And that doesn't make sense to me too.

    hmm... can't find dvd-r DL for purchase. Thank you digicube for helping me to learn that.

    Guess we'll have to see if it's possible to buy a dvd burner, by a company on the list in ImgBurn, that is bitset-able.

    I have switched off the auto video stup and set the HCenc advanced option to default to profile "BEST" but whenever the job window is opened it is shown in the info during the encode process that the profile is "FAST". What gives?

    Another thing; I have set the max bitrate to 8000 in the general preferences and saved it, but it keeps changing to 9000 in the HCenc project setting whenever I change sth at the AUDIO project tab.

    After changing sth at the audio section and checking back the video tab, the max bit rate is not at 8000 but at 9000. And it is greyed out at 9000 and cannot change it back, though I have switched off the auto video setup and auto bitrate calculation, it is still greyed out.

    And later at the HCenc job window it's also shown that the max bitrate is at the 9000

    Also this: in general preferences I have set the audio to default to AC3. But whenever starting a new project, the audio settings on the project tab are changed to WAV.

    And that is what is connected with the thing in the previous post. I have to switch off the auto audio setup and set it back to AC3 manually, and after that the max video bitrate is changed to 9000, contrary to what is being seet in the general settings and kept at first upon loading the video in the new project. That is, kept until I change the audio settings to AC3 (as set in the general preferences but not respected for the audio part of the loaded project).

    Sorry but I cannot reproduce any of your issues...

    The only way I can think of to ignore the selected HCenc profile is if you are using my HCenc_mod plugin and have a different setting for the profile in the file "UserParams.txt". Please post your HC.INI file.

    You cannot set the max bitrate in the general preferences. You can only set the Max Average Bitrate there. The only way to set the max bitrate is to use regedit and edit the max bitrate setting under HKCU/Software/AVStoDVD.

    And if the audio format is not what you have specified under preferences then you have probably specified to keep DVD compliant audio. If your source has WAV audio then it will be kept (because it is compliant). So you need to uncheck the "Keep compliant audio" option under preferences.

    You should really take the time and study the included documentation. I am quite sure that you can solve all your issues by reading the doc.

    Ok I have solved two issues. Changed the registry value and switched off the "keep MPEG2 complient" for audio. Now it defaults to max bitrate in the video 8000 and also to AC3 in the project audio tab. But the "fix demuxed AC3 erros" is greyed out in both cases, with or without keep complient audio, just noticed it. What about that?

    Never mind, I have deleted the mod and reverted to the original HCenc. exe. I have the BEST profile again. The only thing left unsolved is why the "fix demuxed AC3 erros" option is greyed out.

    OK, some progress...

    When reducing the max bitrate to 8000 in the Registry I sure hope that you know what you are doing (there is a reason that this setting is hidden in the Registry). For VBR encodes it is absolutely necessary that the max average bitrate is below the max bitrate by at least a few hundred kbps. So with a max rate of 8000 the average bitrate should not be higher than about 7800 or even lower. This is how VBR encodes work, you better read up about the VBR method.

    The option "Fix demuxed AC3 errors" is only active if the source file really has AC3 audio AND the option to keep DVD compliant audio is checked.

    Are you sure about your "userparams.txt" file? I think that you do not have a space character in front of the "*PROFILE FAST" line. A line in HC.INI is only active if the "*" is the first character in this line. Putting a space character in front of it will comment this line out. Read the HCenc doc...

    The HC.INI file will only be kept if you unchecked the options to delete the A2D assets and the worker files in the A2D main window. But the content of the HC.INI is also present in the AVStoDVD.log file.

  26. Hello!

    I have a problem with AVStoDVD and true 24 fps files: Since the DVD spec is 23.976 fps, 1 frame at every 1000 gets dropped in the encode. This behavior is to be expected, however, I would want my 24 fps files to be automatically slowed down to 23.976 fps so that no frame gets dropped in the DVD encode.

    There is already an option that is similar in function: "Use PAL SpeedUp for progressive NTSC-film to PAL" and "Use NTSC SpeedDown for progressive PAL to NTSC".

    Could you add a "Use NTSC-film SpeedDown for true 24p to NTSC" option that does the proper speed down?

    Thanks alot!

    Hi elcoyote,

    I believe that this is a non-issue...

    The DVD standard for NTSC video is NOT 23.976, it is 29.97 instead. A frame rate of 23.976 or 24 is only compliant if pulldown flags (RFF flags, aka soft telecine) are added to the encoded video stream. AVStoDVD does this automatically using DGPulldown (or HCenc pulldown).

    For a 24 fps source AVStoDVD does not drop any frames, it just uses a different pattern of RFF flags to bring the presentation frame rate up to 29.97. This is different from the "regular" 3:2 pulldown, but nobody will ever be able to see the difference.

    If you really think that only the standard 3:2 pulldown will do it for you, there is an easy workaround in AVStoDVD which allows you to slow down your 24 fps source to 23.976 fps first and then apply the standard 3:2 pulldown:

    In the AVStoDVD settings make sure that NTSC slowdown is checked. Load your 24 fps source into AVStoDVD, then right-click on the input title and click "Edit Source Title Info -> Video FrameRate". Change the fps from 24 to 25.

    This will slow down your source from 24 to 23.976 and apply the standard 3:2 pulldown to the encoded video stream. I do not believe that it makes any sense, though...

    Post the log file, it should show where the encode stops

    Did you use HCEnc or FFMPEG as the encoder


    Having a look, somebody else had the exact problem and the suggestion was avisynth was running out of memory after the encode worked fine on their previous computer and this only happened after moving to a more powerful system

    Try adding SetMemoryMax(2048) in your AviSynth script as the very first line. Its far more thyan avisynth can handle bu some filters are very memory intensive (assuming you're using filters via avisynth). Click on the avisynth tab in your prject and untick the auto avisynth script option to enable manual editing


    Also, if this still doesn't work, have a look at avisynth+. Its come a long way and is multi-threaded and now works perfectly with AvstoDVD and might have a few fixes

    https://github.com/AviSynth/AviSynthPlus/releases/download/v3.4.0/AviSynthPlus_3.4.0_20191020.exe

    Just double-click the installer and install to defaults. It should work perfectly as avisynth

    https://github.com/AviSynth/AviSynthPlus/releases/download/v3.4.0/AviSynthPlus_3.4.0_20191020.exe

    Just double-click the installer and install to defaults. It should work perfectly as avisynth
    I used FFMPEG as the encoder.

    It doesn't show where the encoding error is in the log unfortunately. When creating the ISO I see the error in my CMD prompt and goes to the next task. It still creates the ISO successfully, but when I watch the ISO it's all messed up. I see the menu for a split second, skips it and plays the first video. It shouldn't do that because I didn't force the 'Play All' button. If I hit next to go to the 2nd video it stops and says cannot render file. Is there an avisynth log I can include? I happened to get a screenshot of the error right when it errors out and moves on to the next tasks that I will include.

    I did see the guy with the same problem with me yesterday and I haven't made any changes to my system. I saw that post was from like 2012 and he was only running 2 gigs of ram. I would think 8 gigs of ram would be quite good compared to then. I've actually used AVStoDVD on this system for about 3 years with no hardware changes perfectly fine. A year passed and now I need it again and here we are not working. The only thing that would have changed about my system is OS updates and a newer version of AVStoDVD.

    Under the avisynth settings for my project I don't see the option to untick auto avisynth script. I've included a screenshot.

    I actually have the latest avisynth+ installed with default settings in the default location (C:\Program Files (x86)\AviSynth+) and that's what I'm using avisynth+ 0.1 (r1576). I tried it with avisynth and got the error so I upgraded to avisynth+ and get the same error.

    PS. I even tried uninstalling ffdshow and installing the LAV filters with the suggested settings. When encoding that I get another error that I'm not able to see and also fails. I've included a screen shot at the very bottom exactly where it fails and says "Warning! Errors during DVD Menu generation"

    I tried setting the encoder to HCenc VBR 2-pass. I tried to do a full menu preview and it gets to the part in the 3rd screen shot and fails. I also uninstalled the version of avisynth+ and installed the one you gave me and still fails when trying to see the full menu repview. Will give it a shot creating the ISO anyways and will report back.

    Back: It ended up creating the DVD perfectly fine with the avisynth+ you gave me with HCenc. I notice that the text in the menu and the menu itself is very pixelated/grainy. I understand it's 720x480, but a retail DVD with the same aspect ratio is much better quality/clear. Any idea how to sharpen the menu and the video up? The source video files are 4k.

    Thanks!
