    Is there any filters for vdub that can output a logfile as to the encoding of a video.

    What I need is something to show me how long it took to encode, encoding frame rate, encoder settings, etc..

    I thought for sure there would be a way to create a logfile. But I have searched for 2 hours now and haven't found anything.

    thanx

    That doesn't give any good information. No times, no settings, the info it gives is pretty much useless:

    [*] AVI: Opening file
    "C:\Burn\Documentary\Burned-Unviewed\StarGaze2-Hubble.avi"

    [*] Beginning preview operation.

    Dub: Input (decompression) format is: RGB888.

    Dub: Output (compression) format is: RGB888.

    [*] Ending operation.

    The only thing I can use from it is the colorspace format.

    I think there is a filter for avisynth that will output a text log file. Was wondering if there is anything for vdub.

    thanks.

    No, if dub interrupts for some error it writes it.
    I usually write all (input file codec & resolution; audio type; VitualDub filters used and so on...) on a TXT file which I keep on my PC....

    OK. That's fine if I'm trying to find an error, but I dont have any problems. I just wanted a way to track how long it takes, input/output file info, settings, etc... for each of my encodes. That way after a few encodes of the same file, I could go back and reference to see which settings are most effecient. I was just hoping it would be an automated process. It doesn't seem that it would be hard to find something like that. I guess I could always try to write my own filter - bleh...

    If you wanted to automate testing different encoder settings you could try avs2avi. It can save/load encoder settings or you could use registry keys. Just use > to output to a text/log file. It will give you encoding times and average fps.
