    got this error message while trying to compress first pass with DivX5.0 (job file came from Gordian Knot).

    I read in another thread that resolution has to be a multiple of 16 but my avs source is 384x288 (=16* (24x18))

    What's wrong?

    Thanks, GeeVee

    You didn't perform any resize/crop in Dub?

    As far as I know, I didn't. After DivX5 didn't work, I tried DivX3 and got the said resolution. Even if the avs has a vob in background that has to be resized, this resizing is done prior to DivX coding.

    True, but I'm asking this since if you performed cropping/resize at any point, there's the possibility that in the end, DivX codec gets f**ked up resolution video into it (not multiplies of 16), which is the really only cause for the problem you mentioned.

    One thing tho' -- can you preview the video correctly with VirtualDub before you try to encode it (I mean, you've added all the filters & stuff you are going to, prior encoding)?

    Yes, i can preview and I managed to solve my problem.

    But it is strange. I loaded the malfunctioning config file and on
    DivX Pro 5.0 Codec configuration page, General Parameters tab I pressed
    the button "Restore codec's default". This didn't change the
    "Quick Config CLI" on DivX Codec tab:

    -b1 780 -key 300 -dr 12,2,2000,10,20 -sc 50 -pq 5

    Though both checkboxes for "Enable Crop" and "Enable Resize" were disabled,
    the values changed from
    0
    480 0 0 640
    0

    to

    0
    0 0 640 480
    0

    but now the compression works! I saved both configs as .vcf file,
    the only difference is the line

    8<--cut--/begin
    VirtualDub.video.SetCompData(372,"GAEAAODmCwDQBwAACgAAABQAAAAsAQAADAAAAAIAAAAFAAAAAAAAAJABAAAAAAAAAAAAAB4AAABkAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAgAAAyAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACgmZnJPwAAAKCZmck/QAAAAAAAAACAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIACAADgAQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAOA/AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAQAAAAEAAAABAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAAAAAAEAAAD/////BAAAAEQ6XFRJVEFOX0FFXGR2ZDJhdmktcHJvalx0aXRhbi1hZV8yLmxvZwBjOlx0ZXN0LmRpdngARDpcVElUQU5fQUVcZHZkMmF2aS1wcm9qXHRpdGFuLWFlXzIubXYA");
    8<--cut--/end

    which fails and

    8<--cut--/begin
    VirtualDub.video.SetCompData(319,"GAEAAODmCwDQBwAACgAAABQAAAAsAQAADAAAAAIAAAAFAAAAAAAAACgAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABkAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAgAAAyAAAAAAAAAAAAAACamZmZmZnJP5qZmZmZmck/QAAAAAAAAACAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAgAIAAOABAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAOA/AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAQAAAAEAAAABAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAAAAAAEAAAD/////AQAAAGM6XGRpdngubG9nAGM6XHRlc3QuZGl2eABjOlxtdmluZm8uYmluAGk=");
    8<--cut--/end

    which works
    for completeness, if you want to test:

    8<--cut--/begin
    VirtualDub.audio.SetSource(1);
    VirtualDub.audio.SetMode(0);
    VirtualDub.audio.SetInterleave(1,500,1,0,0);
    VirtualDub.audio.SetClipMode(1,1);
    VirtualDub.audio.SetConversion(0,0,0,0,0);
    VirtualDub.audio.SetVolume();
    VirtualDub.audio.SetCompression();
    VirtualDub.video.SetDepth(24,24);
    VirtualDub.video.SetMode(3);
    VirtualDub.video.SetFrameRate(0,1);
    VirtualDub.video.SetIVTC(0,0,-1,0);
    VirtualDub.video.SetRange(0,0);
    VirtualDub.video.SetCompression(0x78766964,0,10000,0);
    VirtualDub.video.SetCompData(372,"GAEAAODmCwDQBwAACgAAABQAAAAsAQAADAAAAAIAAAAFAAAAAAAAAJABAAAAAAAAAAAAAB4AAABkAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAgAAAyAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACgmZnJPwAAAKCZmck/QAAAAAAAAACAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAIACAADgAQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAOA/AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAQAAAAEAAAABAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAAAAAAEAAAD/////BAAAAEQ6XFRJVEFOX0FFXGR2ZDJhdmktcHJvalx0aXRhbi1hZV8yLmxvZwBjOlx0ZXN0LmRpdngARDpcVElUQU5fQUVcZHZkMmF2aS1wcm9qXHRpdGFuLWFlXzIubXYA");
    VirtualDub.video.filters.Clear();
    VirtualDub.subset.Delete();
    8<--cut--/end

    My problem is solved, but the cause for the error is still unclear and interesting. Thanks for your Time.
