Looking for a simple guide to using Avisynth

Author

I have constantly heard about others using this seemingly magical program to do all kinds of things to videos that seems unfathomable like cleaning up dirt and subpar footage into great looking restorations, so I looking into using the program myself to simply make a standard definition, interlaced, 25fps clip into a reasonably good looking deinterlaced 23.976fps that could stand up against some HD footage. What I got a lot of technical jargon to sift through and a lot of stuff to install with little instruction about where to put it and how to type code or something.

If anyone around around here knows a decent guide or is able to help with such a request, I’d be very thankful

I’d start with something you could find here:
http://avisynth.nl/index.php/Guides

Advices:

  • avisynth is HARD - and I mean it… to master it, it will take a lot of efforts, time, patience… but the possible results worth anything!
  • go with avisynth+ instead of “normal” old ones
  • I use VirtualDub2, that is better than old versions IMHO
  • always refer to doom9 forum (https://forum.doom9.org/forumdisplay.php?f=33) for any problem, there are very helpful and nice users there.

Welcome to this strange world! 😄
