    The M2V video I am trying to get on DVD via AVStoDVD does not work anymore and I dont know why.

    My logfile representing a typical run is seen below. When I hit the Start button, the HCenc 0.23 window pops up. The HCenc window processing values are filled in except under the encoding statistics pass1 section. The software seems to freeze from there. I end up having to abort the program.

    It is interesting I am able to use SUPER to convert this to AVI without problems and them use AVStoDVD to convert the AVI to the DVD video structure. After that I can burn with a different utility but would prefur to have the AVI step with SUPER taken out.

    Another thing I have tried is changing the TITLE>EDIT TITLE tabVIDEO section value from HCenc OPV 1-pass to HCenc VBR 2-pass with the same results.

    I have also tried to change the audio output format setting in TITLE>EDIT TITLE Audio tab to AC3 since DTS audio is not encoding supported. When I do this the processing is then halted telling me to look in the log file. The log file looks identical except for the appending of this text at the bottom of the file:

    Ideas Anyone?

    TIA

  2. Hi ehunter,

    there's something missing: you said that you have tried with both HCenc 2-pass and HCenc 1-pass, but the log file shows that QuEnc 1-pass was used instead.

    BTW, if the encoder program is hanging, please be patient a little bit (max 2 minutes): sometimes file indexing is required, and it takes some time.

    Moreover, be sure to use latest AVStoDVD release (2.3.0) and that all required software is installed (Haali Media Splitter, good directshow codecs as ffdshow).

    Let me know

    Sorry for the confusion. I have tried all three encoders and, in my haste, mismatched my description with the log file I posted.

    Last night I noticed the newer version, V2.3.0. I uninstalled the old, installed the new, set a few necessary processing options, and have rerun the software. Here is the logfile I am presently receiving. I noticed a new logfile for the encoder so that is posted following this logfile.

    This has been running for 9 hours now. The software is waiting for something and I cant figure out what it is. My next post you will see a screenshot of the HCenc 0.24 processing screen. In the upper right you can see how the process is IDLE. I speculate it is that way for 99% of the time. After over 9 hours it has been able to plod its way to 20% in progress.

    I have a I7/860 (8virt cpus) and usually these runs average less than 30min. Is there something else you would like me to recheck? In looking at the logfile I see I forgot to change to NTSC but that should not matter.

    I just noticed a message on the HCenc 0.24 window. The message says:

    Very Low Qualtizer, Bad Q Estimation, Please re-consider settings.

    What do I do to compensate for this? Job has been running 4 days already. (Had to restart)

  5. Hi ehunter,

    I must say that your patience is really huge and deserving respect! Wow, 4 days waiting! Ok, there's surely something wrong. Let's deepen:

    1. Have you installed Haali Media Splitter (it comes with AVStoDVD installer)?
    2. Have you installed a good directshow codecs suite (ffdshow)?
    3. Are you running Windows 7? If yes, have a look at AVStoDVD Help/FAQ/General/Q1.5
    4. HCenc msg is just a warning, surely not the cause to the current problem.

    Let me know

    When I installed the newest AVStoDVD I removed the old one first.

    1)
    Then I downloaded the latest version from https://www.videohelp.com/download/AVStoDVD_230_Install.exe
    I then ran the installer. A screen poped up asking which components to Install. I selected AviSynth 2.5.8,
    ImgBurn 2.5.1.0, Haali Media Splitter 1.10.120.15 and Active X Controls even though the instructions say
    since they are unchecked, they are already installed. I checked these "on" just to make sure .

    The step for installing the Haali Splitter had some setup options with checkboxes. I left everything
    at the default. (Disable MPC internal Matroska Splitter (checked), Disable Gabest internal Matroska
    Splitter (checked), Enable MP4 Support (checked), Enable OGG/OGM support (checked), and Enable MPRG-TS Support
    (checked). Two items were not checked and I left them that way. They are Enable Avi support and Enable
    MPEG-PS support. Then the install completed.

    2)I was not sure about ffdshow so I followed the link and re-installed that too, version 8.1.
    There were also some configuration options that popped up. I expanded on the instalation options
    just to make sure everything got overwritten and I included other options that looked available.

    3)Yes, I am running Win7 Pro64 with all the latest patches so I looked at the Help/FAQ/General/Q1.5 you
    mentioned. I downloaded and installed the Preferred Filter Tweaker (V3.2 May 6, 2010). I used the
    program to change everything to FFDSHOW. Hopefully I did not miss anything.

    I will try to use the program now. I have aborted the run that has been going for many days aleady.

    I will report back.

    Thanks very much for the Help

    Everything seems to work now

    I should have reinstalled the components in parts so I could determine which was the problemed area. I
    ended up installing everything all at once and just testing to see if it works.


    63 minutes for a 4.6GB 1280x544 MKV video into standard DVD structure.

  8. I’m really hoping someone can help me out here!

    I’m having the same problem and have no idea what is wrong.

    I’m in process of making 4 DVDs using AVStoDVD. The first 2 encoded in a little over 4 hours. I’m on the third, and it has been running now for 9 hours in HCenc and is only at 97% of the FIRST 8-min. title of 11. At this rate, it will take 5 days, but it seems to be progressing slower and slower as it goes… I need these DVDs by the 26ᵗʰ (9 days from now) and still have one to do after this.

    The only difference between this one and the first 2 I did is that the file types for the videos are .mov rather than .mp4. The 4ᵗʰ and final DVD after this are .mov files too so I suspect I will have the same issue.

    I too have the warning “very low Quantizer, bad Q estimation, please reconsider settings”, but I’ve read in several places, including here, that it’s not an issue and to just ignore it.

    I’m using my Mom’s computer to do this. It’s Windows Vista (rest of computer specs are in my profile). It’s all I have right now as I’m over 461¼ miles from my own until at least the end of June and need this before then. It worked fine for the 1ˢᵗ 2 DVDs.

    Any ideas? I too installed everything I believe (on May 8, so versions are current). Should I uninstall and reinstall everything from scratch like that^ guy did? Think that would help? Or are there any settings I can adjust to speed things-up so this disc doesn’t take a week or more to complete?

    Thanks a ton in advance to anyone out there who can help me,


    UPDATE: Title 1 of 11 has now finished, took 9 hrs., 36 min., & 23 sec.. On Title 2 now. Entire project is now 4% complete.
    Watch, when this finally finishes a week from now, the DVD probably won‘t even work after all this. XD

    Post the AVStoDVD log from this run, it may provide some clues.
    What version of Windows are you using? What is your PC specification, most important CPU and RAM.

    I can typically encode a 2 hour movie, 2-pass, in about 70 minutes on my very modest AMD FX 4300 with 4GB RAM

    Secondly you should have started a new thread. Re-opening such old threads is frowned upon...

  11. I actually I’m seeing now in the log file that it says ffdshow is not installed. Is that the issue?

    EDIT: I’m also noticing that it says the output disc space is only 6 GB, which is what’s free on the C:\ drive, but I thought I had made the target the D: where there is plenty of room.
    Maybe this is the problem too. ugh, I don’t think there’s any way to change that without starting the whole project over and redoing the carefully placed menu I made from scratch.

    Which version of AVStoDVD is this? I am unable to see the version since this is not a complete log.
    I would update to the latest (version 2.86 download it from this site)

    In the Preferences/Avisynth tab, change "hard framerate conversion" from Motionprotected to ChangeFPS and save the preferences
    as default.
    Then re-add your files and recreate the project.

    You can check the Avisynth tab at "view/edit title settings", you should see
    Video = Video.ChangeFPS(29.97) instead of Video = Video.MotionProtectedFPS(29.97)

    Once this is confirmed you can retry the project.

    Regarding this:
    “very low Quantizer, bad Q estimation, please reconsider settings”

    It is a message warning you that the bitrate is too high for the material. This can be resolved by lowering the bitrate
    at title edit/video tab try somewhere about 20%. For example if the bitrate is 6000 , lower it to 4800
    or you can use a better matrix. At "HCenc advanced options" change the matrix to FOX2 .

    I would try changing the matrix first.
    If you still see that message after changing the matrix, then you'll have to lower the bitrate also as above

    For both of these "tweaks" you should do it for each title in the project by using prev title/next title buttons

    EDIT saw your update regarding disk space.
    In Preferences on the paths tab, change "DVD output" to the drive with more space. Select save as default and exit out.

    The version is in fact 2.8.6 from Apr. 8 /17, which I installed from SourceForge.net on May 8.

    Thanks for all these suggestions. Stopped the process after 11½ hours (still on Title 2) – I will try them and report back

    Worked like a charm – Thank you!
    And with no difference in quality in end-product… It somehow looks even better on TV than it did on computer!
    Whole thing was done in 1 hr., 20 min., 42 sec. — MUCH better!

    Changing to the FOX2 matrix for each track worked to get rid of that Quantizer warning message without needing any further bitrate adjustments.

    You know your stuff. I never would’ve figured any of this out myself. I appreciate your help so much!

    Sorry again for resurrecting this old thread. I should’ve started a new one and linked to it if need-be.
