Running custom filters or AviSynth scripts/functions

May 11, 2012 at 12:34 PM

Is there someway I can load Avisynth functions to enable me to use custom filters, for example there is a function that removes grain and also slightly sharpens the video source (mainly blu-ray)


There is also a very complex function for Avisynth called MCTemporalDenoise that basically can do the following :

A motion compensated noise removal script with an accompanying post-processing component. This script is a motion compensated temporal denoiser, which utilizes both pixel and motion masks to obtain the highest quality output. It also includes a variety of post-processing filters, everything from sharpening to antialiasing to halo removal. Plus much more!


I also want to use filters that are not inluded with VidCoder, such as 'toon.dll' for sharpening and denoising anime sources. I appreciate that running external filters/functions can cause more problems as quite a few of these need further filters to run, but will vastly increase the facilities that VidCoder already offers

It's a good idea but is hampered by technical limitations. I use the HandBrake engine, which offers no facilities for hooking into these custom filters.

Thanks anyway, just looking it up it appears that the filters included with VidCoder are the ones that Handbrake comes built-in with so it looks like handbrake is the restriction as far as extra filters
