Windows 7 Successful Use of [AviSynth > AvsPmod > avs2avi]

Made a simple AviSynth script to get an existing real HDV video (in Cineform format) and apply TDeint (motion-compensated deinterlace filter) to it.  Opened it in AvsPmod and it displayed OK.  Exported the result of that processing from AvsPmod via [Tools > Save to AVI].  This called up avs2avi.exe.  That executable’s menu of codec formats was as below.  NOTE the Cineform codec (following that company’s takeover) now comes under the name GoPro – I missed it the first time I scanned!  The test worked fine – deinterlaced video successfully exported to Cineform and subsequently played in Windows Media Player.

  •  Microsoft Video 1 (an ancient format – as explained at
  • Intel IYUV Codec (a very old format
  • Intel IYUV Codec (again)
  • Cinepak Codec by Radius
  • proDAD Saver for Mercalli (not sure it’s a real codec, maybe a “virtual” one, associated with the proDAD video stabilization plugin for Sony Vegas)
  • GoPro-Cineform Codec v7.3.2 (CINEFORM)
  • ffdshow Video Codec (several choices, shown when you hit Config button)
  • Intel Indeo Video 4.5 (From the “good old days”, I used it back then to compress PAL standard definition video from analog capture)
  • Full Frames (Uncompressed)
