So I'm trying to encode a video but it's been a year since I last attempted an encode. Probably another year or two before that since I was last successful. I've got a fresh install of win7 32 bit and a fresh install of cs3 (Cs5 said my computer didn't meet the specs and Cs4 wouldn't install) and I got my video edited with a minimum of issues.
I went to export but it won't give me a option for any of the lossless codecs I installed so I exported the file in uncompressed avi. I opened Zarx no problem but when I attempt to load the video (As the old amv guide suggests) it won't work with any of the 3 options.
Any suggestions? I know I'm surely doing something wrong as I was never the most technically savvy editor and its only gotten worse with time. But I'm trying to claw my way back and just hit this snag.
Ok So I can encode but I need to fine tune my file and was attempting to use avspmod (and can't find a newer version) but I keep getting the error AVISource: Couldn't locate a decompressor for fourcc V210.
But my file is uncompress... It gives me a similar error if I try direct show. Suggestions?
The long pause happens because FFVideoSource() needs to index the file. Depending on how large the video is and how fast your computer is, it can take a few minutes only the first time. This is completely normal.

For big files (which is likely a case with uncompressed), it helps to do a separate index first. Drag and drop the .avi over the .exe file that came along the avsi and dll, a prompt will appear. When it closes, the file is indexed and you should be able to instantly load the avs.
