AviSynth Install Guide for Windows

Postby l33tmeatwad » Fri Mar 25, 2016 10:47 am

AMVpack was created to make the process of installing AviSynth and other various tools easier. This guide will have two sections, one for AMVpack and another that explains how to install AviSynth with various other plugins and tools manually.

Install Methods
I. Install AMVpack
II. Install AviSynth Manually



I. Install AMVpack

  1. Download AMVpack and run the installer.
  2. Select a language preference then click OK.
  3. In the AMVpack install click Next then click I Agree.
  4. In the "Choose Components" screen click Install.
    NOTE: If you would like to install 64-bit AviSynth or other additional tools, do so on this screen!
  5. On the "AMVpack Install Complete" screen click Finish.

II. Install AviSynth Manually

IMPORTANT: The majority of Windows installs since Vista are 64-bit, because of that, the following guides are formatted with instructions for the 64-bit versions of Windows. If the folder "Program Files (x86)" does not exist on your machine you should use "Program Files" and also use "System32" instead of "SysWOW64".

Software to Install
A. Install AviSynth
B. Install AviSynth Plugins
C. Install AvsPmod
D. Install DGMPGDec
E. Install Ut Video Codec

  7. Once the destination folder is set click install.
  8. When the install is completed click "Next >" followed by "Finish".
