Could I please ask the advice of the AviSynth experts here?
I'm encoding a large uncompressed AVI (40GB, progressive, 29.97fps) to Xvid using VirtualDubMod.
I have an AviSynth script that already produces superb results with AviSynth version 2.5.8:
#ASYNTHER Default (AVISource)
AVISource("E:\XYZ project\Uncompressed AVI exports\Sequence 01 (lagarith RGB).avi")
However, I also want to encode a 23.976fps Xvid version as well, so I need to do an Inverse Telecine, 3:2 pulldown thingy. It seems using the Avisynth Decomb filter is the best way to do this.
I have 3 questions about using Decomb:
1. Because my source AVI is already progressive, do I even need to use the Decomb commands AssumeTFF() and Telecide()?
2. For framrate conversion down to 23.976, is simply typing "Decimate()" in the script all I need, or should I add some perimeters to that command?
3. At exactly what stage/line/order in my script above is the best place to insert this task/tasks?
If you could post an example Avisynth script for me that'd be grand.

If the source is true 29.97fps (every frame different and unique), then decimating it to 23.976fps will make it play jerky/jumpy. Forget the idea.
Or is there already one duplicate frame in every 5-frame sequence?
VirtualDubMod and I can't see any repeated movement. I don't know if VDM has a diagnostic for detecting such frames or not. I'm just going by my eyes.
The footage is a compile of a number of progressive NTSC DVD sources that were frameserved and edited in Premiere CS3 as a 29.97fps project, and then exported at the same fps.
The reason I'm doing the conversion is only because someone I gave the file to said that 23.976 fps will make the file more friendly for distribution, specifially for playback on some computers. Is he even right, I wonder?
Also, your script:
... Lanczos4Resize(720,304,0,60,0,-56) LimitedSharpen()
You can use LimitedSharpenFaster (aka LSFmod) and do the resize as part of that:
Crop(0, 60, 0, -56) LSFmod(strength=100, dest_x=720, dest_y=304, defaults="fast")
see http://avisynth.org/mediawiki/LimitedSharpen, the AVSI is linked from there.
