Before Starting

Make sure you have a copy of 3ivx D4 and GraphEdit

To Convert an AVI Movie to MPEG-4

  • Open GraphEdit
  • Drag your AVI Movie into GraphEdit.
  • Delete all filters except the AVI movie and the AVI Splitter.

Image after first cut

  • Go to Graph > Insert Filters...
  • Go to 3ivx Filters and insert the 3ivx D4 Audio Encoder, 3ivx Media Muxer, and 3ivx Video Encoder.
  • Go to DirectShow Filters and insert the File writer. A new dialog should pop up. Insert the name of the file you want to save. (ie: my-movie.mp4).
  • Return to the graph and right click on the first output pin on the AVI Splitter. Select Render Pin. Do the same with the second pin. You should now have a connected graph.

  • Right click on the 3ivx Video Encoder and select Filter Properties.
  • Change the bitrate and encoder modes to the appropriate values. If you are unsure what to use, try using the Encoder Mode Single Pass - Constant Bitrate, and a Constant Bitrate of 150KBytes/s. A higher bitrate will increase the movie quality, but will increase filesize.
  • Right click on the 3ivx Audio Encoder and select Filter Properties.
  • Change the encoding method to appropriate values. If you are unsure what to use, try using the Average Bitrate per Channel method with a bitrate of 64KBits/s. A higher bitrate will increase the audio quality, but will increase filesize.
  • Go to Graph > Play to convert your AVI file to MPEG-4.
