I hope writing this message is addressing a new issue.
DVRMSToolbox 18.104.22.168 is great, btw... and it was the first version that actually loaded the DTBVideoEditor, unlike the lack of runnig in 22.214.171.124. However, I am having some trouble with converting.
I know how to edit timecodes for improper commercial spans, thanks to CommViewer. And I am familiar with working with most of the features of this application, and DVRMSToolbox in general.
So back to the subject, after corrections to the timecodes (commercials), and I am ready to convert, I have a problem. I want to convert to AVI (I think) with x264 (H.264 codec, I think) and AC3 sound (2.0 or 5.1 channels). I have all the equipment and codecs such as Comskip, SA, and a new official release of SAV1, as well as ffdshow and Anti-Pack.
Previously, I used to do this with MCEBuddy 1.0.8, with the H.264 profile... until that started giving me problems with long scans and no results... after trying to update the analyzers.
So here's my process: I record to .dvr-ms, choose an analyzer ran outside of DVRMSTB (with outputting the .edl) - currently ComSkip 0.80.26, enable SRT options (whether I correct them before or after), and at the end of the processes, I am ready to convert the video.
The real problem right now is I get an error in the application saying, "Error in Do Work: not set to an instance of an object" or related after I hit convert.
Now I haven't tried other formats yet, so maybe those will work... however I, like most, are learning to convert to AVI. And I thought you should know this, in addition to some features and profiles in the TB application does not work... and the "Value Not Set within Expected Range" message.
As an example, I take a file (long or short), to convert to the AVI: (720x480 to start with, x264 video codec, and AC3 sound) for DTBVideoEditor... and I get the message. However, processed with MCEBuddy 1.0.8 with the H.264 profile (before changes)... and it came up with an AVI file with about 1385 KBPS video bitrate, and an audio bitrate of 192 KBPS...
* That application did not have a way to produce CC or SRT ever, so the previous files are just an example of bitrate calculations for me now.
** In DTBVideoEditor, my preferred setting are similar AVI format, however I'm setting the video and audio bitrate at twice the values, for better quality (2770 video, and 384 audio bitrates)...
Like I said, I will check on other containers and update you if those work or not, after you reply. I know very little about perfect bitrates, so most of this is trial and error. However, I am now having problems with all three of my applications (Toolbox and VideoEditor; and processing problem in MCEBuddy).
So I am writing so that you can help me out with a suggested solution. I wanna make this Editor program the app I use by default after scanning, so please if you have an idea, let me know.
I also know little about codec combinations... so I'm experimenting with that too.
Altogether, I am way behind knowledge-wise compared to most of your website member's posts... but I'm catching up so I can make a DVD sometime, I hope.
