    Hi folks

    I am having trouble getting with videodub. Unfortunately, I am only new
    at video editing etc. Anyway, I have downloaded some digital video from
    my dv camera. edited it in Ulead VideoStudio 7 (don't laugh!! it's
    simple and does what I need it to do :) and exported it as an avi file
    with divx 5.01 encoding. However, it's still interlaced, so I am trying
    to use virtualdub along with a filter from Gunnar Thalin which is
    supposed to get rid of the interlacing. It does seem to work, but there
    are two problems:
    1. there is a slight bobbing in playback now,
    2. the audio is out of sync by the end of a sample 10.22 second video by
    about 2 the video finishes after the audio has. I have
    noticed that it's not so much an audio problem as a video problem,
    because it seems the video itself is now 2 seconds longer.

    Also, I have had other problems with virtualdub, like how it cant read
    DV encoded AVI files (like the raw captured files from the dv-cam.).
    Also, it can't read some mpeg files I've made. Strange! Any ideas why?

    Anyway, if anyone knows a good way to fix this, and perhaps explain why
    it's happening, I would appreciate that.

    Anyone have better ways of getting rid of interlacing?

    Thank you!

    Forgot to mention, the filter from Gunnar Thalin is the Deinterlace -
    Smooth filter as recommended by

    Seems to work ok with the internal deinterlace filter.

    Any reason why virtualdub can't read mpeg2 files, or DV avi files?

    Try KernelDeint for AVISynth.

    Almost certainly you don't have a DV codec that VirtualDub can use.
    VirtualDub needs an appropriate "Video for Windows" codec to read
    AVI files

    VirtualDub only supports MPEG-1.

    He would need VirtualDubMod to read mpeg-2
