TVEAi 3,x doesn’t accept Avisynth scripts (AVS) anymore because of some legal issues, but with AVFS (Avisynth.Virtual.File.System) and Pismo File Mount you can load your Avs scripts into TVEAi again.
So, let’s do it…
1º Download AVFS… AVFS - Avisynth Virtual File System
2º Download Pismo File Mount Audit Package build 192… Pismo Technic Inc. - Download
3º Unzip avfs_220.127.116.11.zip and copy avsf.exe to C:\Windows
4º Install Pismo File Mount Audit Package build 192
5º Open a CMD prompt in the folder where you have the AVS scrip and write; start avfs somescript.avs
Press enter and wait some time.
Once you have mounted an AVS, you can access the output of the script through the mount point in the c:\volumes folder. So for the above example, you would go to c:\volumes\somescript.avs . The script output will be there as somescript.avi.
You could also associate avfs.exe with the avs file extension
in explorer, to allow you to more conveniently mount avfs files.
Any problems you may face read the Readme file included in the AVSF.zip
I don’t know the difference in speed between GUI and CLI, as I have never actually measured it.
However, TVAI 3.x consists of FFMPEG with a built-in TVAI filter and a GUI wrapper, and it relies on FFMPEG for input, conversion, and output.
Therefore, there should be no difference in speed between GUI and CLI.
The advantage of the CLI is that you can freely combine FFMPEG’s built-in filters, specify the color space, and configure other settings that cannot be controlled in detail by the GUI.
Note that there was almost no speed difference between reading avs(QTGMC&ColorSpaceConvert) with pipe and reading video files directly with FFMPEG.
This may change in the case of heavy avs.
The Avfs posted is outdated and with a lot of problems to load 64bit plugins. Please download Avfs for Vapoursynth… Download VapourSynth64-Portable-R45.7z - VideoHelp
Inside of the 7z you can find a working Avfs. Just copy it and replace the old Avfs. It works perfectly with 64bit Avisynth scripts.
Later I will try to update my topic with this new info.
