ok so I've decided to try and improve the quality of my amvs... I've always used windows movie maker so i've never used .avi before the prior amv challenge where i had difficulty with lines appearing when rendering. Now, since everyone tells me to use .avi I have to believe that it isn't the root of all evil and that it's something I'm doing wrong. I've been given tips and help (*cough* shaun *cough* vaughn) but I still can't quite wrap my head around what I need to do exactly... I think I've received too much info for my A.D.D. to fully grasp

so here is my situation:
the anime episodes I'm using are .avi raws (so no need to get rid of any subs). Because I know nothing of video stats and their meanings here is any info you might ask me about


I don't like working directly with the full length episode so I want to cut out and render the clips I plan on using.

So what do I do ? @_@
step 1: use sony and just cut out the clips?
step 2: do all the scripting thing and saving as lossless ?

i dunno where to even start... because when i just cut out clips and save as .avi i get the annoying lines i was dealing with when i made the AIR video...

help please :X

well to do that step one u wanted is to make an avisynth for ur episodes and u should never use divx/xvid directly on any editing program. and those annoying lines were due to interlacing..(correct me if im wrong)

Step One: Make an avs scrpit for the episode.
Step Two: Cut out clips u wanted to useforu amv, instead of rendering a whole episode which will eat up u memory unless u have a hard drive.
Step Three: Kill audio with virtualdub or kill it though avisynth.
Step Four: ctrl+p, for compression and choose lagarith or huffy whih works better for windows movie maker.
Step Five: Render.
Step Six: Edit.

have fun editing

You basically have all you need in vaughn's post.

The file size seems small so it must be a divx.

Sony vegas also works better with lagarith then huffy.

Huffy is mostly used in Premiere because of the RGB() colour spaces.
