http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/dvd2divx_anamorphic.cfm I have been following along with this "how to" article on to rip a DVD to .avi format using the DivX encoder. With that posted article being a couple of years old now, I have had to do some troubleshooting - many of the programs listed are in newer versions, so the commands have changed slightly. Still, I think I managed to get to the final step fairly successfully - the step where VirtualDub actually is used to create the final product. When I put the two passes into the final job queue and click Start, there is an error - whose message is: Cannot Start Video Compression: The source image format is unacceptable. (error code -2) In an old forum message, the suggestion was made to ensure that the resolution was set to be multiples of 16, and I have done so, but without solving the problem. The one major difficulty I had was because I am using DivX Pro codec 5.1.1, not DivX 5.0, and the codec configuration menu is VERY different. I have tried my best to set the settings the same way as suggested in the article. Could these settings be causing this problem? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me with this.
