I'm having difficulty downloading Film9. The download speed is very slow, around 10KB/s, and the download was corrupted. I have no problems with downloading files or internet speeds with other websites. Perhaps Film9.org has reached it's limit and is being throttled by the ISP?
First a big THANK YOU for creating Film9. I've been struggling and experimenting with avisynth and virtualdub with various scripts to process my 8mm captures. Up till now, i didn't get much satisfying results. Until I found your Film9 software. This is the perfect tool or me!! I'm still experimenting with the various settings but so far I'm very impressed with the results.
I have one problem: some times the software 'hangs' during processing after the first step. After step 1/2 is finished, nothing happens. I have finished a few processes without issues, but now i'm stuck with this bug.
I'm still trying to find out which setting causes this issue, but maybe someone else has the same problem and can help me out.
If this problem persists, please give me an email address by MP, I will send you a download link.
It is difficult to answer you without having more details.
Can you send us an extract of your clip as well as the configuration of your computer?
A question for Gelinox please
Film 9, really is very good, so Thank You for making it.
I will happily make a donation once I sort out this problem, if you can advise on how to resolve it please.
I have had great results using film 9 (version 3.10 15 07 2020) on short clips (3 minutes) of jpg images from cine film scans but I encountered a problem with a much larger process
A friend also had the same issue, he was exporting a 'video' so I think his export was corrupt where as mine was 99% ok to use as I was exporting tiff images and only lost 3 tiff images at the end of the processing.
My set up: New Windows 10 with SSD. Jpg scans on an SD card, exporting to a USB3 2TB ext drive. Windows defender realtime protection off, not connected to the internet, so as to reduce anything in the background.
This time I tried to process a 400ft reel of cine film. settings for grain (75%) , dirt clean (2 pass) and stabilise (default setting)
This comprised 22,636 of jpgs (22.5gb) which F9 turned it in to 22,633 of tiff images. (70 GB)
the last 3 tiff images are missing as Film 9 locked up at the end of the job.
I know it locked up as I put the job on overnight and it was left to run for 7 hours and in the morning, sitting there doing nothing, 99.9% done.
The projected time was around 90 minutes in VirtualDub process window as the export took place.
I couldn't 'abort' the final VirtualDub process without a re start on the pc.
Fortunately only the last three tiff images are missing so I can use the tiff images Film 9 has written, to import in to DaVinci Resolve to work on, so all is not lost.
Had I been writing a video file I would imagine it would have been corrupt had I forced the program to close.
Can you suggest anything as to why this happened please, and how it can be resolved?

You don't have to pledge a donation to get an answer.
I can't explain why, three images are missing at the end of the process.
Here is how I do it:
- I never work with clips that are too long.
In the event of a crash after hours of computing, it's painful to lose everything.
My films are segmented into 4gb files automatically when capturing (but you can do it very easily manually when working in .tiff).
Film9 allows you to compute as many clips as you want, between each clip VirtualDub is closed and restarted, which avoids quite a bit of memory problems.
In addition, the settings of a clip can easily be applied to all other clips, eliminating the need to re-enter the settings individually.
- I avoid external hard drives in USB
Sometimes there are link problems lasting a few microseconds and momentarily the reader is not found, which is enough to cause an error.
Finally, it often happens that I process between 50 and 80 4gb clips without encountering any crashes.
Whereas if I had only processed one 200gb clip, it would have caused a crash.
Fortunately I exported tiff images as I like to work with an image sequence, so all was not lost, just the final 3 frames.
Next time I do this, I will trim the 400ft reel in to smaller chunks in Film9 before processing, as you suggest, and see how that goes.

This is my first post here,so be gentle with me. I have just started trying to work out the Film 9 software and really struggling with it. I joined up on this forum to get a few tips. It took me a while to figure out if I don't have the Lagarith codecs, I end up with no file in the treated clips folder. Now I have installed this I'm trying what I think is a very simple clip to work on. It's a 21 minute clip of 8mm film converted to MPEG4 (file size approx 1.2 Gig) Now using the "Basic" preset,it turned into a huge 22 Gig MPEG4 running 7 minutes long.
Where have I gone wrong?
Thanks in advance.
Hello AndyM and welcome to this forum,
The Lagarith codec was offered to you when you installed the program.
And then at each start, Film9 should notify you of its absence, if my memory serves me correctly.
If you follow the advice the program gives you, you shouldn't have a problem.
For the other questions you ask, I invite you to first read the user manual which describes the operation of Film9 ("Help" menu), in particular the one concerning the "Project" page.
Hi Roland,thank you for the reply. The Lagarith codec was ticked as installed as per the prefences.I reinstalled it anyway and that cured the lack of video in the treated clips folder.
I am a complete novice with Virtualdub and Film9 so really having difficulty with working out why my clip ends up running way too fast. According to the Film9 infos ,the source clip is 21 minutes long, 17fps 1.2Gig,MPEG4,avc1 CODEC 1920*1010 Progressive. Doing a render with options or no options results in pretty much the same thing. a clip running around 6 minutes long,and about 450Meg in size. Last clip I rendered showed 50fps,but a previous render show 18fps but both running super fast and both around 6 minutes.
What do I do?
I see that you did not consult the user manual as I had mentioned in the previous message (for your question : p.17 and following).
As you read it, you will learn other tips that will help you.
Of course, if despite careful reading you get stuck on a specific point, we will be happy to provide you with information.
