Default GUIDE - How to Convert Quicktime Mov to Avi(DivX/XviD)

what you'll need:

avisynth 2.5x - get it at http://www.avisynth.org

virtualdub(mod) - http://virtualdubmod.sourceforge.net/

quicktime alternative - http://www.free-codecs.com/download/...lternative.htm

Steps:

1. install all of the above.

2. open up wordpad.

3. type in the following
Quote:
directshowsource("C:\my file.mov")
except replace "C:\my file.mov" with wherever your file is on the hard disk. click 'file', and save it as an avs (eg script.avs) file somewhere on your hard disk.

4. run virtualdubmod, open the avs file. it should go through, and you can now use vdub/mod to encode as usual

should also work with converting to mpeg-2/dvd, just open the avs with something like tmpgenc

enjoy

Aloha anonymez,

Quote:

4. rename the extention of the new text file from .txt to .avs
Such a nice guide for us to use. In order to cut the step of rename the file extension from .txt to .avs, would it be easier just to save the WordPad as Text Document with something like "my file.avs" so that the WordPad will save it as AVISynth file?

Regards

Easier way but not free: open in Ulead Video Studio and save as AVI

it ain't easier, you've gotta download a huge trial that way. also most people are familiar with vdub already, just not avisynth

Let not forget that with AviSynth we can utilize ton and ton of built-in video processing filters and exceptional add-on filters under our command. Can open not only .mov files but with almost any type of video

I think AviSynth is just an amazing product. What it allows us to do is just incredible.

You might convert MOV to a more common format like AVI
As for the solution, I suggest try Faasoft MOV to AVI Converter or Format Factory .
They should get you through what you have, and basically converts anything to anything so you shouldn’t have any problem finding something that works.
