Avisynth script problem

(I posted this in another area, but thought it wasn't the correct place, so I decided to put it in a more 'general' place)

Hi, haven't been here in almost 5 years. I wanted to make an edit for my father-in-law. I remembered just about everything on how to do this, but I have run into one problem I just can't seem to suss out. Hoping someone here is willing to help.

I am creating a Star trek edit of The Menagerie (and using footage from The Cage and a variety of other TOS eps to create something new).
I'll be using the prepared avi files in Adobe Premier to do the editing.

Here's my workflow:
* Used dvdfab12 (latest version) to copy part one of The Menagerie (I'll be using both, eventually, but am initially working the first part now)
* Used pgcdmux create the .m2v file
* Used DGIndex to create the dv2 file
* Created my AVS script exactly as Captain Khajiit shows it in his guide
* The correct dll from DGIndex is in the Avisynth folder
* Using VirtualDub 1.10.4 (with the plugin MPEG2.vdplugin in the plugins folder)

When I open VirtualDub, then try to open my script (File->open video->Script 1.avs), I get an error saying that "there is no fucntion named TFM . . ."




My script looks like this, and is saved as a .avs:
Mpeg2Source("D:\Downloads\test\VideoFile.d2v")
TFM()
TDecimate()


What am I doing incorrectly? Am I missing a step, or some dll that needs to be in Vdub or Avisynth?
It's been over 5 years since I did any of this and I am operating mostly from memory. . .

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you in adance,
FT

I'm definitely no expert with avisynth, but have gotten a few scripts to work. One thought that occurred to me when looking up the TFM reference is this: do you have the TIVTC library installed? http://avisynth.nl/index.php/TIVTC

<FOREHEAD SLAP!>

That was the exact problem! I was so focused on the DGIndex .dll that I completely forgot about TDeint.dll and TIVTC.dll.

Thanks Racer for the input, that solved my issue.
