Topic: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

AviSynth Filter - a modern ffdshow replacement with support for 10-bit/HDR
sources

Benefits:
- no ffdshow big_smile
- uses modern Avisynth interface -> works correctly with newer Avisynt 3.6+
- supports 10-bit color depth
- supports HDR pass-through (LAV -> madVR)
- won't hang after fast seeking (hopefully big_smile)

Here's a public beta-test!

0. Update SVP!
1. Unpack .zip into SVP 4 installation folder
2. Run SVP 4\avsf\register.bat as admin
3. Go to your video player, remove (or uncheck only) 'ffdshow raw filter' from the external filters, add 'AviSynth Filter', check 'Prefer'.
4. Switch to madVR for maximum compatibility.

10-bit playback is best working with madVR. Other video renderers may not support 10-bit at all, or switching between 8- and 10-bits, etc.
See Application settings -> Additional options -> Allow output in 10-bit color depth. When set to 'Never' - converts everything into 8-bit.

HDR: best working with madVR, however you may also want to try MPC-BE with any other renderer.

Re: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

I watch a lot of 4K HDR content.

For those of us on MPV using Vulkan, I believe we use vapoursynth and not AviSynth, is there any benefit to using this? Or does this only apply for those still using madVR?

Re: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

Installed Avisynth 3.6+ Downloaded the rar and registered avsf.

The Bad:
Without avsf 10bit ->  P010 10bit
With avsf 10bit -> NV12 8bit

The Good:
No Hangs, no crashes, runs smooth

Tested in MPCHC and Potplayer (Without Pot Native)
is there something i could try?

@Blackfyre: Only for People using MadVr (Projector calibration with 3dlut & lens control)

Edit:
Resolved, With GPU Accel on, 10bit works, with CPU only, not (8bit).

Re: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

seems like "levels.full=false" doesn't work with 10bit

Re: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

Is this going to work with 32 bit MPC-HC?

Asking because I wanted to combined SVP Pro with Reclock to get perfect audio/video synchronization smile

I've tried to do it but got crash:

> Is this going to work with 32 bit MPC-HC?

works on my rig...
when exactly do you have the crash? right after video opening or after SVP kicked-in or some time after?

---
ah, I see, it crashes with reclock enabled

If you open the AviSynth Filter properties, the "AviSynth script to load" field must be empty. Is it?

yeah- it's empty, still crushing tho....any ideas?

Well, with 64 bit MPC-HC+madVR it's OK, ofcourse madVR stats are showing some reapted frames but I personally didn't noticed that smile

Oh! One more thing when do all files modification about adding 10 bit support with DirectShow, MPV player do not playback in 10 bit mode then (?!)

Re: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

> any ideas?

Nope. The "avisynth filter" author can't replicate the crash on his rig... and it actually ReClock who crashes, so .... dunno what we could do about it.

are you sure? hmm mpv must work the same way it used to.

UPDATE SVP FIRST VIA MAINTENANCE TOOL!!!
- fixed 10-bit not working in mpv
- fixed OSD colors in 10-bit mode

+++ also fixed +++
- partially not working profile conditions --> https://www.svp-team.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=76714
- audio only playback via mpv --> https://www.svp-team.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=5888

Re: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

after update i am getting this error when i seek.

any solution for this issue, thanks.
Player: potplayer.

thanks

for now installing Avisynth+ 3.6 may help

Now, mpv does work in 10 bit mode, after update smile

... just want to add one thing about Reclock crushing- noticed that it does work with 1080p movies but crashing with with 4K HDR. Is this can be some hint fory you,maybe?

Re: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

playing 4k in a 32-bit video player is not a very good idea by itself.... especially in 10-bit mode.
look at the memory consumption.

Re: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

Thanks for fixing the profile conditions from this post smile: https://www.svp-team.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=5798

There seems to be another bug I've found, in the last stable release I was able to use expressions to define multiple conditions for the "Full file path' like this: \H:/Movies|H:/TV Shows|E:/Videos/Movies|E:/Videos/TV Shows\
In the last update on this beta (28/09/2020), using the expression above doesn't save to the profile, as in it disappears when u view another profile/exit program. Inputting a single file path seems to work just fine though like: H:/Movies

yep, thanks for noticing. quick fixes usually introduce more bugs big_smile

Re: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

Before the update, I was using PotPlayer + madVR with potplayer.native = true and potplayer.prefer_avisynth = true. Do I need to change any of those settings to make use of the new avisynth filter?

Re: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

> Do I need to change any of those settings to make use of the new avisynth filter?

think about it as a drop-in replacement for the ffdshow

Hi SVP!

Can we get an answer on this? I'm in the same boat and would like to know smile

Re: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

Its sad that paying customers cant get a simple yes or no on a question sad

Re: PUBLIC BETA TEST: AviSynth Filter - 10-bit/HDR in DirectShow

please be patient. Chainik is absent in other treads too, so i think he has day off or out of town Let him rest )))
