    How to edit with Avisynth

    Newbies start here
    Download
    Sample scripts

    Introduction
    Avisynth is a very useful utility created by Ben Rudiak-Gould. It provides many options for joining and filtering videos. What makes Avisynth unique is the fact that it is not a stand-alone program that produces output files. Instead, Avisynth acts as the "middle man" between your videos and video applications.

    Basically, Avisynth works like this: First, you create a simple text document with special commands, called a script. These commands make references to one or more videos and the filters you wish to run on them. Then, you run a video application, such as VirtualDub, and open the script file. This is when Avisynth takes action. It opens the videos you referenced in the script, runs the specified filters, and feeds the output to video application. The application, however, is not aware that Avisynth is working in the background. Instead, the application thinks that it is directly opening a filtered AVI file that resides on your hard drive.( http://www.lukesvideo.com/avisynth.html )

    Avisynth is a scripting language and a collection of filters for simple non-linear editing tasks. Avisynth is unusual in that it does not generate output files.
    Instead, Avisynth scripts, which have the extension .AVS, can be opened directly
    in applications which read AVI files. When an AVS file is opened, Avisynth runs in
    the background, generating video and audio data according to the script and feeding
    it to the application as needed.

    Make the text roll

    The following sample scripts create credits of a home-made video. Source is 720x576, 25 fps.

    Zoom out the main movie title
    Code:
    AVISource("D:\video\jack.avi")
    Animate(0,100,"subtitle","Little Jack's",-1000,500,0,150,"Arial",
      \  1000,$FF0000,"Little Jack's",70,300,0,150,"Arial",60,$FF0000)
    Animate(0,100,"subtitle","birthday party",-1000,500,0,150,"Arial",
      \  1000,$FF0000,"birthday party",70,350,0,150,"Arial",60,$FF0000)
    Zoom in the title
    Code:
    AVISource("D:\video\jack.avi")

    Video fade in/out. Dissolve

    Source is a home made video 720x576, 25 fps

    Simple Fade out (fades the last 150 frames lineary to black at the end
    and adds 1 pure black frame, audio also fades lineary to silence)

    Code:
    AVISource("D:\video\jack.avi")
    FadeOut(150)
    Simple Fade in

    Code:
    AVISource("D:\video\jack.avi")
    Reverse.FadeOut(150).Reverse
    Cover a part of the video with fade out/in

    Code:
    AVISource("D:\video\jack.avi")
    part1=Trim(0,5000).FadeOut(150)
    part2=Trim(5001,10000).Reverse.FadeOut(150).Reverse.FadeOut(150)
    part3=Trim(10001,0).Reverse.FadeOut(150).Reverse
    UnalignedSplice(part1,part2,part3)
    Cover a part of the video with fade out/in without fading the sound

    Code:
    AVISource("D:\video\jack.avi")
    part1=Trim(0,5000).Animate(4850,5000,"Letterbox",0,0,288,288)

    UnalignedSplice(part1,part2,part3)
    Dissolve - Fade the last 150 frames of the first part into the first
    150 frames of the next part. Audio is blended as well.
    This filter is rather useless, if you have only one source, but it
    is great if you want to join several sources. Check the "cut/join" sample.

    Code:
    AVISource("D:\video\jack.avi")
    part1=Trim(0,5000)
    part2=Trim(5001,10000)
    part3=Trim(10001,0)
    Dissolve(part1,part2,part3,200)

    Crop and split screen

    Source is 720x576.
    Crop 20 pixels off the left side.

    Code:
    AVISource("e:\cap.avi")
    Crop(20,0,700,576)
    Crop 20 pixels off the right side.

    Code:
    AVISource("e:\cap.avi")
    Crop(0,0,700,576)
    Crop 20 pixels off the top.

    Code:
    AVISource("e:\cap.avi")
    Crop(0,20,720,556)
    Crop 20 pixels off the bottom.

    Code:
    AVISource("e:\cap.avi")
    Crop(0,0,720,556)
    Split screen. The source resolution is 720x576.
    Do nothing.

    Code:
    AVISource("e:\cap.avi")
    q1=crop(0,0,360,288)
    q2=crop(360,0,360,288)
    q3=crop(0,288,360,288)
    q4=crop(360,288,360,288)
    l1=StackHorizontal(q1,q2)
    l2=StackHorizontal(q3,q4)
    StackVertical(l1,l2)


    Code:
    AVISource("e:\cap.avi")
    q1=crop(0,0,360,288)
    q2=crop(360,0,360,288)

    Code:
    AVISource("e:\cap.avi")
    h1=crop(0,0,720,288)
    h2=h1.FlipVertical
    StackVertical(h1,h2)

    Resize and add borders

    Probably the most used Avisynth filters. Calculate how to resize properly with FitCD.



    Read the FitCD dokumentation.

    Zoom in/out

    Zoom into the middle of the picture.

    Code:
    AVISource("e:\cap.avi")
    Animate(0,150,"BicubicResize",720,576,0,0.5,0,0,720,576,720,576,0,0.5,280,241,160,94)
    Zoom out from the middle of the picture.

    Code:
    AVISource("e:\cap.avi")
    Animate(0,150,"BicubicResize",720,576,0,0.5,280,241,160,94,720,576,0,0.5,0,0,720,576)
    Zoom work with Animate, Crop and Resize only. If you want to zoom in/out the entire image,
    i.e. without cropping, you have to resize and add borders frame by frame, because Animate
    refuses start-args and end-args, that lead to different frame sizes.
    __________________________________________________ ________________________________________
    Picture in Picture

    The background of this procedure is, that you split the image into several pieces
    with the CROP filter and join them again with STACKHORIZONTAL/VERTICAL.

    The background is any part of the video (10000 frames). Assuming, that I want to create
    9 chapters later, I add 9 thumbnails to the video clip. Each thumbnail contains 10000 frames of the
    video, e.g. the first 10000 of each chapter.
    All 10 videoclips play simultaneously. After a while it starts to zoom into the first
    thumbnail, a message appears (Chapter 1- Jack's first kiss"- please press key 1 ;-)).
    The message disappears and it zooms out to the menu. Then it starts to zoom into the 2nd thumbnail
    etc. etc.
    I did not add audio to the script and I wont even try it. It should be easier with an audio editor.
    In practice 6:40 might be too long for a menu and zooming into such a small part (96,108) is not
    the best idea, because a from 96x108 to 480x576 resized image is very unsharp. This is just an example.
    Loading the AVS into an application takes a couple of minutes, be patient.
    Converting takes several hours, be even more patient. :LOL

    Clean up a clip captured from VHS tape

    Source is 640x480.

    Cover garbage on the bottom of the clip.

    Code:
    LoadPlugin("MPEG2DEC.dll")
    mpeg2source("I:\cap\cap.d2v")
    Letterbox(0,16)
    Crop garbage off the bottom of the clip. To keep the proper framesize and aspect ratio,
    add as many border count lines as you croped before.

    Code:
    AVISource("D:\video\jack.avi")
    CropBottom(16)
    AddBorders(0,0,0,16)
    You prefer a centered image....

    Code:
    AVISource("D:\video\jack.avi")
    Crop(0,0,640,464)
    AddBorders(0,8,0,8)
    You hate borders at all...., then you have to sacrifice a bit left and/or right and resize
    to a valid framesize.

    Code:
    LoadPlugin("MPEG2DEC.dll")
    mpeg2source("I:\cap\cap.d2v") 
    BicubicResize(480,480,1/3,1/3,4,0,632,464)
    is the same as
    Code:
     
    LoadPlugin("MPEG2DEC.dll")
    mpeg2source("I:\cap\cap.d2v")
    Crop(4,0,632,464) 
    BicubicResize(480,480)
    If you have a very old and noisy source, you may try to clean it with some denoise
    filters. The SpatialSoften plugin work quite well. Try different filters and values.

    Code:
    LoadPlugin("MPEG2DEC.dll")
    LoadPlugin("AVISynth_Spatial.dll")
    Avisource("I:\cap\cap.avi")
    Crop(4,0,632,464)
    SpatialSoftenMMX(2,4,6,false,false,4,4,6,8)

    Code:
    AVISource("d:\cap\cap.avi")
    Trim(0,30000)+Trim(71000,0)+Trim(36000,65000)
    Join several clips

    Code:
    AVISource("d:\cap\cap1.avi")+AVISource("d:\cap\cap2.avi")
      \  +AVISource("d:\cap\cap3.avi")
    You have captured several shows and want to extract some scenes of each show and join

    Add a logo

    There is no Avisynth logo filter. That's why I use Donald Graft's logo filter for
    VirtualDub. Also I added this example to show how to use VirtualDub plugins.

    Static logo fades in (frame #100-199) and fades out (frame #401-500). It will appear
    in the very upper left corner of the image.

  2. Hi Truman, I use Avisynth to prepare my captured videos so I don't need to cut after TMPGEnc. This works fine all the time.

    I would like to do the same with the project file generated by DVD2AVI but I don't know how to open this file from Avisynth, can you help me?

    Thanks

    Copy MPEG2DEC.dll to winnt\system32 (windows\system).
    Create the dvd2avi project.

    LoadPlugin("mpeg2dec.dll)
    mpeg2source("C:\dir\filename.d2v")

    You have to use avisynth 1.0beta3 or later.

  6. Once I changed "mpeg2dec2.dll" to "mpeg2dec.dll" it appeared to be loading successfully until it gave an error on line 84 that said the arguments to function "UnalignedSplice" were wrong.

    Does this script require the newest version of Avisynth?

    Hi Kinneera, thank you for testing the script. I used mpeg2dec2.dll instead of mpeg2dec.dll. Avisynth version is 1.0beta6. Well, I re-read the script and have found a bunch of errors. I will update it soon. Currently I am encoding to MPEG. It takes about 8 hours ! Remember, the clip is 6min 40sec only.

    edit: I have added it to first post.

    Nice Guide. I would have never though making menus were possible with the available filters in avisynth.

    I guess now would be a good time to mention that I'm working on new set of avisynth filters to make making menus simple. THe following script is an example:


    background=AVISource("background.avi")
    clip1=AVIsource("clip1.avi").BicubicResize(252,168)
    clip2=AVIsource("clip2.avi").BicubicResize(252,168)
    clip3=AVIsource("clip3.avi").BicubicResize(252,168)

    #let's make this one circular
    clip4=AVIsource("clip4.avi").BicubicResize(252,168).AlphaMask("circle_alpha_mask.png",0,0)

    # lay out four clips on a background video stream, and then superimpose
    # a PNG image containing the chapter titles
    tmp=background.VideoOverlay4(clip1,70,30,clip2,400 ,30,clip3,70,280,clip4,400,280)
    tmp.StillFrameOverlay("mytitles.png",0,0)

    The picture below is a sample of how far I've gotten. All three images are full video streams. Notice the overlap and the shape of the center video (featuring that lovable zim character, 'the blotch').

  13. Great article and wel written!
    And speaking of old VHS tapes, I have a very old VHS tape that has some broken fields (eg. odd lines ok, but even lines are just noise). So I converted the thing to 50fps uncompressed AVI, sized 352x288 and did all the cleaning/editing needed. Now, I understand that I could Re-interlace it from 50fps progressive to 25fps Interlace using the Weave command, but for some reason I just get a 352x288 25fps file without re-interlacing. I use the following:


    a = avisource ("e:\test.avi")
    AssumeFieldBased(a)
    Weave(a)


    Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    @ ABS

    a = avisource ("e:\test.avi")
    AssumeFieldBased(a)
    Weave

    or

    avisource ("e:\test.avi")
    AssumeFieldBased
    Weave

    should work fine.

    ABS, I am not an expert on interlaced video, but i was surprised to hear that the odd fields are OK and the even fields are noisy. Is that a common problem with interlaced video or old VHS tapes?
    btw, hope you did the editing/cleaning with Avisynth

    Well, I was giving it an All-too-perfect description!
    It's actually a Compact VHS tape from my old videocamera (tape is about 7 years old) and for some reason you have alot of frames where one field (not necceraly the odd or the even) is quite ok, and the other field is just noise. Now, it was easy if there was a simple repeating pattren, but there wasn't, so I had to split it into 50fps and simply remove all the noisey fields, filling them up with interpulation of the Previous and next field. (Did it in Ulead MSP6.5) and the result was quite good.

    I might put up a page on my site with small "before and after" video clips to show extactly how it is...

    Dear Truman:
    I tried to get your animated menu to run. Since I do not have Jack.avi, I decided to use some avi clips from my Civilization II game.

    I received some address erors, so I tried to change the values in the first two lines. Now it tells me the StackHorizontal Values are wrong. The avi files I want to use are 320x240. Can you help me?
    Hello.

    Frame size of "big" is 480x576.
    x= width1+width2+width3+width4+width5+width6+width7=4 80.
    height1+height2+height3+height4+height5+height6+he ight7=576.

    If you did not change a StackHorizontal value, the script is correct.
    To test the script you can simply replace d:\video\jack.avi with your path\filename.
    Well, at the beginning the framesize may be wrong, but you can load it into an application without error message. Then you have to adjust the values of the resize filters.
    btw, there are typo's in line 63, 65 and 67. Replace 156 with 204.

    the infamous access violation message... I don't know, make sure, you use Avisynth 1.0 beta6 and try to load a different AVI, maybe there is a corrupt frame. Also try to load the avs into TMPGEnc or an other app.

    The VirtualDub filters import file contains a sample script and a description of DeLogo 1.2.1.
    Also have a look at the online manual.

    I am trying to use this guide to make my own animated menu. As you know i am realy new to the Avisynth thing. I hope you don't laught at my question.

    can you possible explain to me the those arguments numbers(what they represent) in the following line to me?

    vid=StackVertical(part1,part2,part3,part4,part5,pa rt6,part7)
    chap1in=Trim(vid,0,999).Animate(700,900,"BicubicResize",480,576,0,0.5,0,0,480,576,480,576,0,0.5,48,48,96,1 08)
    chap1out=Trim(vid,1000,1499).Animate(100,300,"BicubicResize",480,576,0,0.5,48,48,96,108,480,576,0,0.5,0,0,480,5 76)

    Thank you very much.

    The filters work as follows:

    Animate(start-frame,end-frame,"filtername",start-argument,end-argument)

    BicubicResize(frame-target-width,frame-target-height[,b,c],
    crop-sorce-left,crop-source-top,
    frame-source-width,frame-source-height)

    b and c are parameters to adjust the properties of two-part cubic (by Mitchel and Netravali read more about it if you like).
    chap1in=Trim(vid,0,999).Animate(700,900,"BicubicResize",480,576,0,0.5,
    0,0,480,576,480,576,0,0.5,48,48,96,108)
    chap1out=Trim(vid,1000,1499).Animate(100,300,"BicubicResize",480,576,
    0,0.5,48,48,96,108,480,576,0,0.5,0,0,480,576)
    Frame 0-700 the framesize is 480*576
    From frame 701 to 900 the frame will get cropped lineary to a frame size of 96*108 of the original framesize. (crop left48,top48,right336,bottom420). At the same time the cropped frame will get resized lineary to keep a framesize of 480*576.

    Short said, it zooms into a small part of the frame.

    chap1out=zoom out this way.

    It is quite hard to understand, because there are hundreds of numbers in the script. Also I think there might be a better solution than using the original Avisynth filters, because this method is damn slow. I am still testing Avisynth2. Maybe it is easier to do with the layer filter or even a logo filter. However, working with this script (a lot of trial and error, I know) will help to understand how Avisynth works.

    Hope it helps so far.

  29. thank you so much for the explanation. It helps a lot. I have figured everything else except for this. I checked the reference guide for the arguments formats of both animation and bicubicresize, but couldn't figure out what is what. Now it is under my control cause i know what they are now.

    thanks again.

    Yes it is very slow. if you ever come up with something faster, please let us know.

    This is by far the best guide i have ever seen in this forum. I am trying on other example you put here, hope they all work out. I also hope you will produce more guides like this for this forum.


    I have another question regarding the "trim" filter of Avisynth. It started as i designed. But it won't stop until the whole clip is finished. for example, in the animated menu. the 6 small pictures. they don't finish at the same time ( they are of the same number of frames). in stead, the number 9 finishes first (cause it starts last), the number 1 will finish last. And they all will end up at the same frame?

    Can you help me with that as well?
