Windows / Re: Convert 704x480 to 720x480 without jerkiness
« Last post by oldmoviebuff on Today at 11:19:51 AM »
My apologies, I forgot to say that I only notice the jerkiness while watching the DVD on my television.

Also I should have said that 720x480 fills my television screen from top to bottom beautifully. 704x480 does not fill the screen vertically.

I am certain that there is nothing wrong with my set-top DVD player.

Thank you for your help!

704x480 is a valid NTSC resolution (both for 4:3 and 19:6 aspect ratios), do not change it. Re-encoding in mpeg2 will massively reduce the quality. If the picture doesn't fit, it is a fault of the player.

I don't know DVDStyler (DVDs died for me a decade ago).

Code: [Select]
export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=fusion
avidemux3_qt5

By all means I would recommend to build from the current git (2.7.1 had two notable regressions).

I just installed (with dnf) Avidemux 2.7.1 (avidemux3_qt5) on Fedora 28 with GNOME 3.28.1 on a ThinkPad X240 which has a display resolution of 1366x768.  The minimum height of the Avidemux window exceeds the height of the display, which means everything from the timeline down cannot be accessed.  Avidemux fits on a Ubuntu laptop with this resolution, so the problem appears to be related to the use of additional vertical space between the lines of text and/or objects in Fedora.  (Ubuntu is no longer an option for me because of its display issue with VLC in 18.04 & 18.10)

Windows / Convert 704x480 to 720x480 without jerkiness
« Last post by oldmoviebuff on October 20, 2018, 09:31:20 PM »
Hello everyone! I am new to Avidvemux 2.7.1 64bit. I’m using Windows 10.

I use a DVR to record old movies on local OTA channels. The files it creates end in mts. Then I edit out commercials with Avidemux, author a disc with DVDStyler Portable and burn it to DVD with ImgBurn.

The channels that broadcast in 720x480 turn out beautiful. The movie fills the screen from top to bottom vertically. But the channels that broadcast 704x480 do not fill the screen vertically.

After much experimentation to remedy this I created the following method to convert 704x480 to 720x480 however I noticed that there seems to be some jerkiness when people or things move around. I am hoping someone here can suggest a way to avoid the jerkiness. It would also be nice if all encoding could happen in Avidemux. Right now DVDStyler Portable takes the 532x480 mpg file and makes it 720x480. If some knowledgeable person in this forum would take pity on a newb and help me out that would be wonderful. As an aside Avidemux is a fantastic program without which I would have had no hope of editing the mts files my DVR creates!

Select Auto then DVD from menubar
Click Filters button from Video Output
Remove all filters in Active Filters list
In Available Filters double click Crop
Advance video to bright scene
Click Auto Crop
New size will be 532X480
Click OK
In Output Format click Configure and select Allow Non Compliant Stream (to accommodate 532X480 crop)
Click save
Video will be saved as MPG file

In DVDStyler Portable delete all menus and titles then add video to create a disc that will automatically start when DVD player drawer closes.
Right click Title 1. In properties under Post commands click dropdown and select jump next title.

Windows / Missing last 4 seconds when I open the video
« Last post by IreneG on October 19, 2018, 11:13:27 AM »
Hi,
I'm opening the video I need to edit but when I open it, it's missing the last few seconds. The original video is 53.41 and when I open it with avidemux is 49.19.

Is there are reason for that? What can I do?

Thanks!

The size of that file is 4.5MB, but this already exceeds the limit of 192KB for attachments.
How can I submit the sample ?

Please use a service like WeTransfer, Mega, Dropbox, Google Drive or similar.

"Windows Media Player" can play it without problem.

This indicates that the file is not corrupted, but doesn't help to locate the problem.

Please provide a sample video which allows to reproduce this crash. There are known issues with very big (>=4 GiB) .wmv files, but this file is obviously not that big.

With the information available, it is impossible to assess what the problem is (apart from that it leads to a crash).
