Hmmm. Tried to reinstall mediainfo and it won't install. Great.

Update: Nevermind.

BD was ripped following Throw's guide. So it's pretty much his fault.

Update: Still shows grey in mediainfo, but I'll give that script a shot anyway. Might try to re rip the video and replace it in Vegas for a new encode.

I tried to do a quick encode before work but it failed. I didn't have time to see why it failed, here is a screenshot.

Sorry. One line got lost somehow when I cut and pasted the script into the PM. My mistake! :oops:

avisource("C:\FINAL_VERSION_12_20_12.avi")
Crop(0,96,0,-98)
Spline36Resize(704,352)
LimitedSharpenFaster()#optional -- see my guide
AddBorders(8,64,8,64)
ConverttoYV12()

OK, that's working great. The m2v HCENC made as a DVD5, looks better than the retail DVD, so I would say it's a good conversion.

I do have to re-render my lagarith, as I realized that the DVD framing cuts off the FE warning as I have it sized.

In the future, would I be better off changing the render settings in Vegas to YV12? I will typically be rendering for BD, mkv, DVD and mp4.

Thanks for all of your help, I really appreciate it.

No; I would stay in RGB and use Avisynth to convert to YV12 after rendering.

You're welcome. :)

New question...

Working with a HD source this time. I'm trying to figure out what my color space is so I can write the correct second line of the script, but mediainfo reports the color space as "Grey."

:?

As Reave mentioned, he had this problem recently. He sent me a sample, which read as RGB on my end in Mediainfo and in other programs. Assuming you converted your source to RGB in a Rec.709-aware way and you expanded the luma range, I would make the line ConverttoYV12() – as Reave did.
