Woah...where time goes. It's been 38 hours - 8 hours (school) - 30 min. (food)...that leaves me with 29 1/2 hours of tediously trying to figure this AMV thing out. I've read everything, followed every link, and I frankly need a push in the right direction. I just uninstalled and reinstalled everything. I've decryted about 4g's of video from Tsukihime. I've got the first episode saved as a .d2v. Can someone please link me to the right place so I can find how where to go from right here. I'm not necisarily concerened with tainting the video quality or anything related. I just want to know which program to use to code my .d2v file into something I can edit with Windows Movie Maker. (.mpeg , .mp2,.ect.) I don't know if this is complete ignorance or sheer stupidity, but all the guides posted in the "You wanna be an AMV maker" are all worthless. They appear to be outdated compared to the current versions of the program and it explains stuff which is done during instalation..at least I think...I'm so lost it's not even funny. Uhh....Please help...

Try this guide, which should be on this site in the not-too-distant future.

To be fair, if the OP wants to follow that guide, s/he really should start with following EADFAG, starting <a href="http://www.animemusicvideos.org/guides/avtech/videogetb2.html#avs">here</a>, for loading the .D2V file with AVISynth and removing interlacing (if desired), and <i>then</i> come back to that guide for aspect ratios and everything thereafter.

Also, thank you. ^_^

If mine was removed and it was the same total size as DokiDoki's, then TLR's needs to be removed .... :evil:

*Changes sig....*
Well. It's been a while...*sighs*
So far I'm doin' great. The only problem left is HARDRIVE SPACE. I've got exactly 8.6g's left and this makes it a little difficult. B/c I have to basically do all my editing in VirtualDubMod. (Not fun or easy). But it is coming along very nicely. I will continue working...one way...or another...

still need to reduce sig size buddy.
204 >> 40
(your sig is 360x204)

8.6 gigs? if you already have your d2v files, then this should be more than enough.
what you can do is make an avisynth script and de-inerlace your dv2 files.
then, you open the script in virtualdub(/mod).
look through these scripts in vdub(/mod) and take small clips (use the mark in and mark out buttons, EADFAG tells you how to do this (if you need help)

use a lossless codec (like Lagarith) to save your clips in the avi container. You can then use these small clips in your editing program. (you might have to change the settings for lagarith, but this just means clicking the "always suggest RGB for output" box and the output mode to RGB(default)...pretty easy

These small clips don't take up too much space, and as long as you don't take 600 clips averaging 1 second each you should still have room to export your project. (assuming you're making around a 4 minute amv)

I've always kind of wanted to attempt to make a video this way. Maybe when I get some more experience under my belt, I will. Good luck with that.

I spent a lot of the time getting used to the process then once I got started (and since I only used one episode) it took lense the 4 hours...not that that is a good thing...but there's no Hiding the fact.
