Default DVD-RB with Filters

I have been reading about the filters like fluxsmooth and undot but I am trying to determine if these 2 filters or if there are better ones for my application. I have a capture card in my PC and I am capturing movies from my Sat.dish and this isn't a HD TV signal. I end up with a 5 or 6 GB MPG file, that after authoring to DVD files and then encoding with DVD-RB and Hcenc the pic. quality isn't that good. I don't know the proper terms but it looks noisy and grainy or sharp. Does this make sense? What filter(s) should I be using and what settings do I put in the editor?

My PC is pretty fast so I think it will handel them, Athlon 64 X2 4600+ 1GB RAM 1SATA HDD.

Thanks,
AV

Default fluxsmooth

Thanks BR7, I used removegrain(mode=3) and it looks better, I am considering mode=4 though. I am wondering about fluxsmooth, would it do the same as removegrain? Is it a better filter for what I am doing? Analog capture with SVIDEO from Sat.receiver

Thanks,
AV

I always liked fluxsmooth not sure if you have the settings for it so I will post it to be on the safe side
little noise: FluxSmooth(5,7)
medium noise: FluxSmooth(7,7)
heavy noise: FluxSmooth(10,15)

I always liked running deen with it also I used it this way = deen()

Default Deen

BR7, some questions:

(1) can I assume deen() with nothing in the brakets is the minimum setting for it?

(2) What is the diff. between grain or noise? Is it the same thing?

(3) I have a AMD Athlon 64 X2 46000+ duel core system so am I correct to use removegrainSSE2.dll or the removegrainSSE3.dll which is for the Prescot. I put only removegrainSSE2.dll in the plugin folder.

so I could put in the editor, since I have all my plugins in the avisyth plugin folder.


deen()
FluxSmooth(7,7)

thanks,

AV

I always assumed it was (but I could be wrong)

I am almost positive you can use SSE3 my Pentium D does

BR7; I used these settings in the editor


deen()
FluxSmooth(7,7)



when the HCenc GUI opends to encode it does't start, it gives me an error saying can't find the file Fluxsmooth. In my Avisynth folder which has this path C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins

I have the following .dll's and files

Decomb521.dll
DirectShowSource.dll
Undot.dll
FluxSmooth.dll
RepairSSE2.dll
Colours_rgb.avsi
Deen.dll
TCPdeliver.dll
RemoveGrainSSE2.dll
RsharpenSSE2.dll

I don't know whats wrong? It just doesn't find the Fluxsmooth.dll file but it is in the folder.

Default Wow

BR7, thanks I got it to work with the .zip file plugins. I was recording movies with the capture card from my movie chanels (Satellite signal, S-VIDEO) that my Media Center PC tells me can't be recorded since they are copy protected. I have been to the MS site many times for DRM updates but still doesn't OK a single copy.

I started with 7GB's and used DVD-RB with 2 filters:

deen()
fluxsmooth(7,7)

and the end result was very good,

Thank you,

AV
