What programs did you use for demuxing and for rendering? Thanks

lagarith link not working
I was going to send a message to Eugenia, but she has private messages disabled apparently, or I'm not doing something right...
but the Lagarith site is down, the only Lagarith codec I could find was
which is version 1.3.19 not the 1.3.18 listed on her how-to page.
Hopefully its not down for good, but I wanted to let someone know...

I followed Eugenia's guide, and my file size turned out to be 4x larger when she said in the tutorial that it would be half the size at minimal quality loss. I don't get it.
Also, is it me or does the test Christmas Tree video of hers look better before pulldown? On my LCD Monitor, it looks jittery with pulldown.

Avisynth open failure:
Script error: expected a, or )
(C\Tools\Working\PF24.m2t_avs, line 2 column 13)
What to do ??
2008 December 26th, 11:03
is HV20Pulldown.exe still being maintained?
if so, is http://www.szudzik.net/vegas/scripts/32Pulldown.zip the newest version (22.214.171.124)?
it seems to work with the newest versions of:
but it does not seem to like the new GUI for DGIndex in dgmpgdec v1.53 (still needs v1.49). was wondering if anyone else could shed anymore light?

Of if you export to MPEG4 (xvid, H.264 etc) you can use MPEG4Modifier http://moitah.net/ to change pixel aspect ratio (PAR) to 4:3 (4:3 * 4:3 = 16:9)

Ok, I ran into an interesting problem today.
Generally if I am shooting 24p mode I keep at 1/48s shutter speed, I then use the pulldown.exe and it works like a charm (sszudik process, farnsworth, et. al). However, today I was at the playground with my son and shot some at a 1/100s shutter speed, and the Sszuddik 24p pulldown.exe just dies when I try to run it. Actually, it gets stuck at 'Executing DGIndex.' It did the same error with every single clip I took that day. I even tried re-capturing in Vegas and HDVSplit...same results.
Then I went outside and shot more footage at 1/48s shutter speed and they all worked perfectly in the Sszudik pulldown.exe application.
Anyone know any problems with the 1/100s shutter speed and 24p????? It's really weird, as I've been using this same process for ages (well, ok 1 year) and never had this problem. The only thing I did differently was use the 1/100s shutter speed.

Ok, I don't know what caused it, but I got around it by simply re-rendering the clips in Vegas as HDV-1080i, then importing them back to my project and the Farnsworth method works fine.
Strange, don't know what caused that but found a workaround.

Not sure how large the DGIndex file is, but I was downloading the files from Eugenia's tutorial and that site seems to be down. Does anyone know another site to download the file or if not (depending on file size) could some possibly send it to me?

Same camera, same problem.

I think you're posting in the wrong forum. This is for HV20 and HV30, which encodes using MPEG2 Transport stream which uses these PID flags to help with the decoding.

Anyone please correct me if I am wrong.

I'm not sure what forum would be more appropriate. I was pointed here by Eugenia from the PC (non-Mac) - Computers, Editing and Software forum.

DGAVCIndex vs. DGIndex may be the key to fixing this but replacing DGIndex in the 24p Pulldown tool just causes the "Executing DGIndex" step to hang. I've put its DGAVCDecode.dll and libavcodec.dll in the AVISynth plugin dir and also tried renaming DGAVCDecode.dll to DGDecode.dll and that didn't help either.
2009 February 18th, 14:20
Sadly it looks like DGAVCIndex supports a different flavor of command line parameters (-i instead of -if, -o instead of -of) and doesn't seem to support the -at command at all.
So it seems HVPulldown would need to be modified to call DGAVCIndex differently. Anyone have the source? Can it be modified?
Of course, this could just be the tip of the iceberg. Surely someone has removed the pulldown from AVCHD before?
FWIW, Cineform seems to work.

4x larger than what? I assume you're talking about lagarith.

I followed exactly http://eugenia.gnomefiles.org/2007/0...-24p-pulldown/
When I played, there is too much lag in video. The audio is fine, but video is getting stuck and delayed. Why so?
2009 March 9th, 10:41
I'm no expert, but from what I understand the Lagarith codec is slow at decoding and/or uses too much compression/quality to be played back in real time by current computers. Its good for editing though.

thank you very much for this post farnsworth
i am having some annoying problems
i connect my hv20 and run HDVSplit, it records a few seconds and then it gives me a windows error message saying that the capturing program has stopped working. then i try capturing again, the camera plays back for a second or two then stops and i get an error message on HDVSplit saying "INFO: No more data is received from camcoder. Capture stopped."
i keep trying over and over again, same problem
i am running on windows vista 32 bit, RAM and everything else is fine.

Farnsworth method has been working well mostly (with sszudik vegas script).
However, I got an error today trying to remove pulldown on some clips I took.
I have attached a screenshot of the error.
2009 March 16th, 22:24
I haven't seen that error before and a search of it on google returns 1 result for deshaker in VDub (it was a dutch site and I don't speak dutch so..). The exception block though seems to be related to the Vegas API and not VDub so I don't believe they are related (I could be wrong).

This is a Vegas error, so were you using instead the in-Vegas script instead of the standalone one?

Sorry to wait so long but better late than never.

If I used the standalone program (Pulldown.exe) it didn't burp an error, rather DGIndex just hung and I have to force-quit. I didn't get the normal screen that pops up with information about time-stamps, etc.
Nonetheless, I just bit the bullet and purchased Neo-Scene and seems to work pretty reliably for pulldown removal with my HV20 24p clips.

I can't install ffmpeg. Do I even need it according to Eugenie's 1st method for Vista? I restarted my computer the first time and I can't even find the program. When I tried to open the zip folder again I clicked ffmpeg.exe and a command prompt screen flashes and then nothing else.
2009 August 7th, 00:15
ffmpeg is a standalone command line program. It doesn't need to be installed. Just unzip it to a directory of your choice. Don't run it directly, but have the utility you're using for 24p pulldown removal point to it. The utility will provide the correct command line parameters.
