How to use AutoGK (Auto Gordian Knot) software to make AVI movies
  

Introduction

AutoGK is part of the new generation of software MPEG-4 compression requiring no knowledge: it is sufficient and just decide to take the place of your future project. The software itself takes the decisions to maximize the quality and it is not possible to choose the resolution or codec options. If you want more control, so to Gordian Knot that you must turn. You can encode your videos, and XviD (including version 1.0 from version 1.05 of AutoGK) and DivX to version 5.1.1 Pro.

The objective of Auto Gordian Knott is a movie file from a DVD in a handy format. From a VOB file, as they, together with IFO files on a DVD is found, a DivX or Xvid file that only about one third of the original size has.

First choice for this task are the video codecs DivX and Xvid and the program Auto Gordian Knot. But beware: If you copy the VOB files from a DVD to the hard drive no program may be used, a copy bypasses.

VOB files on the hard drive take a lot more storage space as one of the compressed video formats such as DivX or Xvid. Both are lossy formats, but the quality loss is minimal given the size really verschmerzbar. A four gigabyte great film can be easily compressed to 1.4 gigabytes, and it still makes it fun to look.


Auto Gordian Knot - a 'simple' video converter for creating Divx / Xvid videos. Supports the import of DVDs, MPEG2 (such as MPG DVB streams or DVB-TS streams), MPEG1, AVI / DV sources. Advantage: simple but high quality video converter and also freeware!

Program Features:

- Video Input: DVD / VOBs (unencrypted from disk), MPEG2, MPEG1, transport streams (including multi-program ones) and AVI / DV input sources
- Video Output: XviD or DivX (5 / 6)
- Audio Input: AC3, DTS, PCM, MPA
- Audio Output: AC3, DTS, MPA, CBR / VBR MP3
- 1 or 2 audio tracks in AVI
- External (VobSub) or internal (existing) subtitles (with support of forced subs)
- Import / conversion / issue of HDTV resolutions (up to 1920x ***) and frame rates (50/60fps)
- Automatic crop and alter the target resolution (based on compressibility of the source to achieve best results)
- Automatic detection of the source videos by: PAL, NTSC, FILM, HYBRID
- Automatic deinterlacer and IVTC
- Automatic split into CD-sized chunks for main video and external subs.

Re: How to use AutoGK (Auto Gordian Knot) to make AVI movies

Copy the DVD to the hard drive
  • First stage, copy the DVD to the hard disk. To do this, after inserting a DVD, use DVDDecrypter.

  • By default, the software adds to the flow (PGC in the Input tab) the longer sense represent the video to copy. If this is not the case, simply refer to the duration of the video you want to extract.

  • In the case of series, you must copy all the tracks one by one.

  • Then select the destination of the copy, and click the DVD to Hard Disk.

  • The copy begins then, and mainly depends on the speed of your DVD player (usually between 4x and 10x), and the size of the DVD. Note that if you do not have space on your hard disk, copying will not start (option which can be changed in Tools).

Re: How to use AutoGK (Auto Gordian Knot) to make AVI movies

Working with AutoGK

Select the input file in AutoGK . Select the Output File where you want the intermediate files and final .avi to go. It's usually the same as the Input file. For the Audio track, select the one you want. Frequently, you'll have audio tracks in different languages on the DVD. There may also be a 6 channel AC3 (Dolby Digital 5.1), a 2 channel AC3 (DD 2.0), for older, classic films a 1 channel AC3 (DD 1.0) and/or a Director's Commentary track. If you plan on using MP3 audio, it might be better to choose the 2 track DD 2.0 if there is one. If you're going for 2 CDs and want the best quality audio, then choose the 6 track DD 5.1 if available. If you want subtitles with your .avi, then choose one of the available languages. These will be "burnt-in" by default, unless you choose external subtitles in the Advanced Settings. That is, they'll be encoded into the video. About the Output size; the default is for 2 CDs and the AC3 audio (DD 5.1, or 2.0 if no 5.1 is available). If you want to try and put the movie onto 1 CD (with lower resolution and therefore somewhat lower quality), then choose 1 CD, and MP3 audio will be chosen by default. Some movies are long and/or difficult to compress.


STEP 1 :

First, it must indicate the location of the video (copied from the DVD) in Input Directory: select the proper directory updates information from the source (here: Video info: PAL - 720x576 -- Anamorphic 16:9 - 25fps -).
Then select the destination directory: avoid putting the same directory to avoid confusion (not to put it in video)

Then select the destination directory: avoid putting the same directory to avoid confusion (not to put it in video).





STEP 2 :

The second step is to choose the audio stream will be used for the compression type of feed (AC3 or PCM) and language; In case you have a PCM, you should choose this one because it is not compressed suffer less loss.





Similarly for subtitles, choose the language, to note that they will not disable, so they will be embedded in the video.








STEP 3 :

Here is the step that can most affect the quality of the result: it is not yet to choose the size of the project! Choose one of the presets provided (1CD, 2CD .. etc) or even give you the desired size.




Maximum Quality option (unlimited size) leave the free will to Auto GK for the final size (while being sure to have maximum quality).





STEP 4 :

Not to be disappointed with the result, press the Preview button to see if the quality is satisfactory (resolution compared to the flow and the size of the project) and if the right sub-titles were selected. Single failure, it will take some time before their taste (this will depend greatly on your machine).
You can also access some options through the Advanced Settings button:
  • Resolution Settings: The default is Auto GK who will choose the resolution, but you can set a minimum or fixed for the film of any resolution, noted that it is a parameter that can significantly affect the final result It is therefore appropriate to let the software choose unless you know what you do.




  • Codec: you can choose your codec or the DivX or XviD, XviD having the upper hand in terms of quality / speed



  • Audio: you can choose between automatic mode (default) or to multiplex the AC3 file in the movie (if you chose an option 2CD for example) and then type format MP3 (VBR or CBR) and the flow.




Advanced Settings

Settings are provided by default but by clicking "advanced settings" you can choose Dvix or Xvid for audio and select the "AC3" if not already done so.

Allow time necessary encoding takes on average 3 hours for a film ... It is recommended not to perform other tasks while encoding, unless of course to have a beast of course!



Encoding

You do not have then to add the project to the list by clicking add job. You can also set encoding of several projects by adding to the list. Then click the start button.

You can ensure that the computer stops once compression is complete: the encoding time will depend on the length of the film and the power of your machine.

Re: How to use AutoGK (Auto Gordian Knot) software to make AVI movies

this is a great application, but it has no command line or batch import options, so I wrote a simple application for importing all the dvds in a directory into autogk, saves a ton of time!
