Avisynth: multithreading, 64bit and more

2 Replies, 3445 Views

Avisynth 64bit (even if may be a bit faster than 32bit) isn't worth the upgrading, as many filters works only on the 32bit version - unless someone has a method to successfully run the 32bit plugins using the 64bit version, I'll stick with the x86 version, even using Window 10 pro - it works well, by the way!

But, it's time to follow the multithreading way... I used the MT version years ago, but it crashed frequently, and it seems it's a general consensus to not use it. But I'm open to (re)try it.

So, what are the alternatives? I want something simple that will split the task automagically - I know that I could split the script and open several instances at the same moment, but I'd prefer a simple, single script (adding the needed plugin lines) instead of split, encode, join operations.

SoraThread seems promising; used in conjuction with MT, speed improves a lot. Other alternatives could be Pipeline, Threadrequest; any other?

Avisynth+: as far as I understand, it is 100% compatible with any Avisynth plugin, and should be faster, so is there a reason to not use it?

If you have problems with AviSynth crashing during encodes, do what I do. Split your .avs script into like 10000 frames each, encode them all to loseless codec and joint them all afterwards with another .avs script. Will save you time if you happen to get crash.
Thanks for the hint Colek! With this new PC, no crash anymore, so I suspect the old CPU was overloaded with long encoding that last several days...
