A. Getting Ready
Download and install Crossover Mac Pro or a WINE binary for Macintosh.
Download and install AMVapp inside of Crossover or WINE. The tests won't work, but AMVapp will.
Download and install SimpleMovieX or MPEGStreamClip. The choice is yours.
Download and install MacTheRipper (Mirror).
Download and install Perian.
Go to MacTheRipper.
The disc should be automatically detected. Go to File > Save To.. and select the destination folder. Choose mode. Choose to De-Macrovision. Choose change region to all. Press Go.
Go to Crossover > Programs > AMVapp > DGMPEGDEC and open DGIndex
Select File > Open > VOB DESTINATION FOLDER and select all VOB files you want included. Confirm that all the VOB files you want are included. Choose OK. Select File > Save Project to index your VOB files. When you are finished, you will have produced three files: a d2v file, an avs file, and an audio file of some sort.
D. Cleaning via Avisynth
Take the AVS file and open it with textedit(or whatever basic text editor you want). In order to clean footage via Avisynth you need to issue it commands by writing them in the file you just opened. These commands vary according to the specific source you are using and what you specifically want from the source. AVS files are as individual as the editors writing them and debate abounds over which commands to use.
As an example, this is an AVS file for Kujibiki Unbalance:
- Code: Select all
mpeg2source("C:\windows\profiles\crossover\Desktop\My Mac Desktop\AMV stuff\kewp\kewp.d2v")
The above commands remove telecining, interlacing, and crop the edges of the footage, as well as remove noise, sharpen edges, and output to a suitable resolution for the original video's aspect ratio.
Go to Crossover > Programs > AMVapp > VirtualDubMod and open VirtualDubMod.
Select File > Open Video File and select your AVS file.
You can now “scrub” (that is, move) through all of the video you have indexed with the Avisynth commands applied. The more commands, the slower this “scrubbing” will be, so be prepared. At the bottom of the VirtualDubMod window, you will have a row of buttons. The last two on the far right are Inset and Outset buttons. These allow you to choose what part of the video you want to export out for use in your editor. The chosen segment will be shown with band of color going from the selected Inset to the selected Outset. To export select File > Save As and choose file name and file type. Remember to choose huffyuv ONLY. Lagarith is not supported outside of the Crossover environment.
You may find your editor will not take the huffyuv in AVI. Have SimpleMovieX or MPEGStreamClip save the file as a MOV. This does not reencode. It simply moves the encoded video to a container your editor probably likes better.
You may now begin to edit.
