This way I do not have to go through the process of all the ripping and converting. But will it be problematic because I didn't work on image? Can't I deinterlace etc. with APP?
If not, and if I have to go through all these steps, then isn't there a simple way than using plugins on AviSynth?
I have tried many different settings and software. I have tried many times AviSynth. But every time the video was like zebra when there is motion. I have tried Handbrake but find the results of Mpeg Streamclip much more satisfying. I have used Avidemux. I find it much more easier to control than Avisynth because of the interface. Using and editing scripts are all a new level of knowledge to me although I can describe myself as a computer geeky thingy. But Avidemux also didn't give satisfying results. Not as much as Avisynth and AvsPmod.
All the knowledge and guides and methods are mixed up in my mind right now and becoming a deadly cocktail!?! Error! Error! Overload! I really need help right now. Can someone talk to me, explain me things in a step-by-step and simple way, answer my questions? I know that I will be taking your time and I really appreciate it. But because right now I can not see any up-to-date guide especially making AMVs on Mac, this post can help may be many others too.

2) The Japanese is unnecessary. Most people on the forums do not speak Japanese. The few that do will also speak English. None will care that it's written in romaji. This simply adds to the issues you should address with 1).
Kionon wrote:Handbrake is terrible, don't use it. MPEGStreamclip should only be used to move lossless footage to different containers (AVI or MOV, depending on which direction you're going). Avidemux is actually very powerful, because many of its filters are ported from Avisynth, but you have to spend quite a bit of time experimenting to find the right mix per source, and even then, you can't add filters, so you're stuck with what is in the particular release you're using. How are you running AviSynth if you're not using wine/crossover and not in windows?
Kionon wrote:You still need to rip, filter with avisynth, put in a .MOV container, edit in an editing suite, output to lossless or as losslessly as possible, and compress with x264 in an MP4 container. What information does need to be updated merely helps make this process easier, or faster, or more efficient. The process overall remains the same.

2) Index VOBs with DGIndex
3) Add filtering commands to AVS file, check in VirtualDub
4) Export successfully filtered video out as HUFFYUV AVI from VirtualDub
5) Open with MPEGStreamClip, Dave As MOV
6) Place MOV in Adobe Premiere
7) ???? (Edit your video, this is where the magic happens)
8) Profit! (Export out as Apple Lossless or as Animation or Apple Intermediate, something like that)
9) Use one of the several compression programs (MPEGStreamClip/Avidemux are good choices here) to create an x264/MP4 file
10) Upload to the Org
You're done. Steps 2, 3, and 4 require wine/crossover or windows. If you do not have them replace 2, 3, and 4 with:
2a) Open vob in Avidemux
3a) Apply filters
4a) Export as HUFFYUV/AVI
Continue via original Step 5.
