  1. Hello, I'm very noob, I'm trying to pass some AVS to MPEG-2 so I can make DVDs, any way to encode them into MPEG-2 in the best quality possible but not a very hard way? I've tried avidemux its really good but I cant keep the original PAL aspect ratio and it get some audio interferences or green flashes at least 1 or 2 times in the videos, any other program that accept AVS files? I tried virtual dub frame server with TMPEGEnc but it dont do 50FPS, I want keep the original MPEG files as 50fps, thank you!

    AVStoDVD, will create either an mpg file or video_ts (dvd) folder. Your choice.

    When you select mpeg2 (ff) for the video format, the aspect ratio is set by 'configure'


    Set the output format as Mpeg PS (muxer) and configure the output as dvd


    avstodvd does use avisynth but it creates its own scripts - I do not think you can import one of your own in to that.


    An mpeg encoder that works with avisynth scripts and has all the relevant settings for dvd is Hcenc with its gui HcBatchgui. (HcEnc is one of the encoders used by avstodvd)

    A2D does have the provision of using a script as the source, then its generated script simply imports the user script as the source.
    I used to enjoy playing around with HCenc GUI myself, but haven't touched it for a while. To get the best out of it, you have to know
    what you're doing

    Neither does DVD.

    Then keep them as MPEG. You'll never get a DVD out of them. Read What Is DVD.

    The closest you might get is by interlacing them to 25i (or 50 fields per second)

    If desperate, perhaps ffmpeg with options something like this (if PAL dvd output)
    Code:
    -f dvd -video_format pal -b:v 8999999 -target pal-dvd
    Of course, your bit architecture build of ffmpeg.exe (x32 or x64) must match the version of avisynth+ and associated plugins which you are using. Also remember to use the right interlace flags if your input is interlaced.

    I ran across that issue with https://www.videohelp.com/software/HC since I gather HC is 32-bit and I use 64-bit avisynth+.

    That's fair enough, I have only used the options available in the edit >> avisynth part of the program.


    Looking a little closer, there may be an issue if the imported script is complex (unless the script points back to an independent install of avisynth) and requires other filters which would have to be duplicated in the Lib folder of avstodvd.


    Yes, HCenc is not for beginners and there are so many settings to make you pull out your remaining hair Just mentioned it as an option for the original question from the OP.

    To make it easy:
    Load your avs into clever FFmpeg-GUI, main, video conversion, continue, Settings like attached pic, click convert.

    P.S. DVD resolution: 720x480 for NTSC, 720x576 for PAL.

  9. @ProWo: how accurate is the file size prediction for mpeg-2 in your tool? If I set for example 2000MB what output sizes should I expect?

    @Selur
    It is a 1-pass coding, so of course it is not completely accurate.
    For your example I would expect a result of 1800-2000MB for a 90min video.
    Of course it depends partly on the video source.

  11. @ProWo:
    Ah okay, 1pass so it's basically non reliable at all unless min&max are also limited.

    For your example I would expect a result of 1800-2000MB for a 90min video.
    So ffmpeg at least won't do over the max average bit rate?

    It is not expected.
