    Hello,

    Does anyone know the [bold]easiest[/bold] way to convert a color video into a black and white? What program, effects, plugins, etc... The clip is an .avi only about 30 sec. long (if this matters).

    Thanks,
    Sonic

    avisource("whatever.avi")
    Greyscale()

    What is your desired output though? Because for instance XviD has a greyscale option built in.

    AVISynth converts without changing the colourspace. VDub converts to RGB24.
