How to combine LD video captured 1 side at a time?

7 Replies, 6045 Views

Can someone provide a simple how-to with pictures for combining separately captured sides of a laserdisc using Virtualdub? I've got the SE Trilogy and TPM captured. I used 1 disc for each side so that I could combine them and edit out the side breaks. I am unsure as to how I would properly edit out the blank frames properly so that all sides fit together without losing any audio or frames. Having visual examples with some basic instructions would be easy for me to work with.


AviSynth + Trim frame by frame
Thanks Colek. Since I'm not an AviSynth user I was hoping someone had a more visual instructional response.


Alright, sorry for such delay in my response Tongue

This is the basic script I worked on lately when making one movie from few recordings:

Import("C:\Program Files (x86)\AviSynth\plugins\FFMS2.avsi")
FFmpegSource2("2015-12-11 23-55-16.mp4",atrack=-1).Trim(0,18435)++FFmpegSource2("2015-12-12 00-18-43.mp4",atrack=-1).Trim(305,35656)++FFmpegSource2("2015-12-12 00-47-04.mp4",atrack=-1).Trim(408,16204)++FFmpegSource2("2015-12-12 01-19-06.mp4",atrack=-1).Trim(617,21848)++FFmpegSource2("2015-12-12 01-38-06.mp4",atrack=-1).Trim(502,14403)++FFmpegSource2("2015-12-12 01-51-06.mp4",atrack=-1).Trim(1104,13523)++FFmpegSource2("2015-12-12 02-03-36.mp4",atrack=-1).Trim(477,7608)

The FFmpegSource2 is importing the video + audio from the file into AviSynth (atrack=-1 is required if you want audio in this as well). Trim values are the frames at which the movie should be cut and ++ are adding next videos into the project.
Jetrell, you could always combine different avi files (each file from different sides), delete the unwanted parts, and then save it as a single new file, without recompression/reencoding (just choose the right option, that I can't remember as I'm away from my PC); it's a quite easy task.

I was worried about losing audio when snipping out the empty frames.
Audio should stay in sync with video.

You can always try to export just the frames you are trying to cut and then see if there is any audio there, if not then you are good to goWink
