    I don't want the giant black lines on the sides of, and in-between both videos. Is there any way to get rid of them?

    Post your avisynth script.

    Does your video contain the black bars?

  3. Crop to remove black borders before stacking.

    clip1=DirectShowSource("C:\Users\username\video name 1wmv")
    clip2=DirectShowSource("C:\Users\username\video name 2.wmv")
    StackHorizontal(clip1,clip2)

    The two videos separately contain no such black bars. When using StackHorizontal, though, they appear.

    I was reading about the crop() function but was unsure how to use it for what I wanted.

    Just a not-so-wild guess --- there may be a problem between the WMV codecs and the current video drivers / video hardware itself.

    Try FFVideoSource() instead of DirectShowSource(), and see if the change makes some difference.
    Or you can still try DSS, but making sure the "native" WMV decoder (from Microsoft) is not being used
    (that is to say, the videos will then be decoded by ffdshow, or LAV Video, or etc).

    That's a little hard to believe. In what did you open that script? With what did you take the picture? What happens when you open the script in VDub? Do you still see the black bars? And, like El Heggunte, I avoid using DirectShowSource if at all possible.

    StackHorizontal() can't add pillarbox bars so clip1 and clip2 had the black bars already. Try this:

    Code:
    clip1=DirectShowSource("C:\Users\username\video name 1.wmv").Crop(106,0,-106,-0)
    clip2=DirectShowSource("C:\Users\username\video name 2.wmv").Crop(106,0,-106,-0)
    StackHorizontal(clip1,clip2)
    Note, I fixed what I assume was a typo in the first filename.

    This solved the issue! Thanks so much!

  9. You might want to crop two more pixels off one side to get a more efficient 640x480 4:3 frame size (8:3 after stacking). Eg: Crop(108,0,-106,-0)
