Well, you made the entry even more confusing. I reverted some of your changes.

Does chaining up video processors not ring a bell with you, webfork?

Especially when Avisynth is involved, it does for me -- coming back from my days of painstakingly decrypting Doom9.org recipes for turning movie DVDs into SVCDs... :mrgreen:

Nope -- need more. Need someone to help me (and everyone else who visits the website who isn't a video person) on this. Process what? To what? Who's this for? Who cares?

That's cool. The goal here is to help; if I'm not helping then feel free.

  • Video processors are complex beasts. Currently, I lack either the jargon and the technical expertise to really answer your question, and until better options present themselves, I must refer you to the 'frameserving' entry of Doom9's glossary (1.) and Avisynth's General FAQ (2. -- the fact that it doesn't have a GUI, as mentioned therewith in point 17, deserves highlighting in present context)...

Is there anyone that can explain how you install avisynth / VapourSynth and if there's a way to do it portably? Also if there's a way we could list to test for MMX and SSE instruction sets. I suspect that if we don't list that, nobody's going to explore this software that isn't already very technical.

:?: You can install AviSynth by downloading it from AviSynth homepage. The file they distribute is a traditional installer.

I think there isn't.
webfork wrote:Also if there's a way we could list to test for MMX and SSE instruction sets.
You can use CPU-Z for that. Supported instruction sets are listed in the "Instructions" field.

Nearly all processors in use today support MMX and SSE, though. The latest processors that don't support SSE are Intel Pentium II and Celerons based on Pentium II, AMD Athlon Thunderbird and AMD Duron with the "Spitfire" core.

Not that I am aware. Especially since VapourSynth requires that you have an existing Python installation and will extend/modify your Python installation with the VapourSynth modules.

If you need a simple command-line tool:
http://oss.netfarm.it/mplayer/misc/cpuinfo.exe

If you need a library and/or NSIS plug-in:
https://github.com/lordmulder/CPUFeaturesLib

BTW: Most compilers generate SSE2 code by default nowadays (this includes recent MSVC and ICL), so without SSE+SSE2 support you are pretty much lost these days anyway...
