I dont know whether this is the right place to ask but I'm using the full version of the AVS Video Editor since today and I got a problem.

My source video is a 60fps HR Video recorded with a camcorder. I loaded up in the video editor, added some text insert nothing else really, but putting different parts together, and then wondered how I could save the video in the best format without any quality loss.

When I look at the original files they are 1.8GB together. I tried to find the highest quality version that is available to save a video (MPEG 1080p), even raised the pictures per second to 60 (like it was recorded from the camera) and saved it like that. The output video from the AVS Video editor is only 1.2 GB big, and when comparing the video to the original source file there is a noticeable loss in picture quality, not much but I'm not happy with it. Here is a screenshot comparison:

Any advice on what is the highest quality format available to save a video. Obviously I dont want to lose any quality. Thanks for any tips.

Some more info if it helps...

The original file data:

Videowitdh 1920
Videoheight 1080
Datarate 24059 kBit/s
Full datarate 24187 kBit/s
Single framerate 59 pictures per second

AVS Video Editor output video

Videowidth 1920
Videoheight 1080
Datarate 15000 kBit/s
Full Datarate 15224 kBit/s
Single framerate 60 pictures per second

Hello,

Please try changing the advanced settings in AVS Video Editor when saving the file (to preserve the quality of the input file, it's recommended to keep the parameters of the original, such as bitrate, frame rate, frame size).

Best regards

Thank you Esther. I have tried to write in the right bitrate and other 'rate' informations at the right places in the advanced settings (not really sure I did that right) but the first result was positive. The avs output video quality was almost as good as the source file.

But I did not find an option to increase frame rate over 30fps. My source file has 60fps. Which video format is the best to use when saving a project.

Hello,

You can choose 60 fps at the Frame rate field when saving the video (for example to MPEG format) in AVS Video Editor.
The qualilty of the output video mainly depends on the advanced parameters you select. You can choose the format that is most convenient for you (depending on the player/device you will playback the output file on).
Here is the list of supported formats.

Best regards

Thank you Esther. Despite trying all types of different formats and changing the advanced parameters, its still impossible for me to keep the picture quality of the original file. It is getting frustrating :-(

Please take a looik at my comparison picture. The original video file picture quality is very sharp.

I have uploaded now a original file as it comes from my sd card recorded with my normal camcorder.

It is 43MB big, with 60fps, HD resolution etc...

Could you (or anyone else?) load it up in AVS Video Editor, and without editing anything, just save it as a video file without visible loss in picture quality?

Here is the link

I am trying to convert VRO files of Rugby League Games recorded off the TV into an AVI file.

But no matter what settings I choose (640x480, 1500KB/S etc) I keep getting the black bars on the left and right side of the screen, instead of the top and the bottom of the screen(widescreen) and the picture although watchable is not the best quality.
like the original recording.

What am I doing wrong? Can you please give me some advice on what settings to use for sports and the above to get the best results.

Thanks

Hi guys,

Being a newbie in here I also posted my questions to tech support, so if you consider this should not be posted in here or that tech support was not the proper recipient to this question, please let me know.

I'm converting .avi files to mp4 for my PSP. I simply would like to know the recommended output settings in order to have the best picture and sound quality regardless of file size. I am currently using the "Sony PSP - High Resolution - (H264, 29.97 fps, 480x272) option and the quality is perfect....apart from the fact that the video is just a little bit jittery when there is a lot of action on the screen. Any recommendation on how to fix my issue but keep the quality?

Thx
Dam

Hello,

There are three possible solutions to the issue.

1. Launch AVS Video Converter >> choose Sony PSP - High Resolution >> press Edit profile and change bitrate from 720 to 640
2. Launch AVS Video Converter >> choose Sony PSP - High Resolution >> press Edit profile and change frame rate from 29.97 to 15
3. Update your PSP firmware.

Best Regards

Thanks for the reply and the info Dam.

I'm always at the latest firmware revision on my PSP so this should not be an issue. I will definitely give the other 2 options a try on my next conversion. I'll let you know if I need further help.

Thanks again for your time.

What are the optimum settings for converting a 60 min dvd to approx an 800mb avi.
With good picture & audio quality & the same aspect ratio & size of the original.

Any straight forward directions (settings to apply) to get the results I'm seeking will be much appreciated.
Thanks.

If you would like to convert a standard 4.5gb DVD to AVI and get 800mb video on the output, try choosing the following AVI preset: MPEG4 Video 765kbps. You can also reduce/increase output file size. For this purpose you need to change bitrate of your output file (in Edit Profile window): the higher bitrate the larger output file will be and v.v.

As for the aspect ratio, if you would like to leave it original, please click on Advanced > Aspect Correction and check the field "Original". In order to change size according to your input settings, click on Edit Profile and set the size in Frame Size field.

Hope that my directions will be helpful ;-)

Hello everyone, just started using avs4you and I am quite happy with it. My primary reason for investing in this product was to reduce my pc's video library file sizes. AVI still leaves a pretty big footprint. Is there another output format which preserves quality but produces a smaller file size ? Any help is greatly appreciated. jim

ok here's a more complete answer:
when you say that you have a .avi file what do you mean?
.avi file is incomplete information
what video codec is the video? there could be dozens
what audio codec is the audio?
an avi file could be an uncompressed video file (very large)
or it could be 'compressed' by some codec

is the audio pcm? which is uncompressed?
is it stereo or 5.1?
if it's 5.1 you may want to keep the encoding as it is
if it's stereo any encoding will do

what resolution is your video?
if it's full HD 1080p (almost always compressed by a codec) reducing the size would mean
a loss of quality. would you like to go from full HD 1080p to SD (Standard Definition)?

Where do you watch your videos? if it's your pc monitor (what resolution does it support?) 720p would be enough and any
reduction would be a loss of quality

you want to reduce the size of your videos without any information?
reencode your videos to 320x480, that would make them really small with a reall lose of quality, they would fit to play on a small screen (not a computer screen, think smaller)


Happy Now?

You can reduce the output file size by choosing a lower quality preset or setting a lower bitrate manually. Please follow this link to our User Guide concerning this function.

Thanks nadin for the reply but could you give me an educated guess ? You know the software in & out. What would you use as settings for an AVI output under 1GB ?
