  2. Go to 3ivx Filters and insert the 3ivx D4 Audio Encoder, 3ivx Media Muxer, and 3ivx Video Encoder.
  3. 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).

  1. Right click on the 3ivx Video Encoder and select Filter Properties.
  2. 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.
  3. Right click on the 3ivx Audio Encoder and select Filter Properties.
  4. 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.
  5. Go to Graph > Play to convert your AVI file to MPEG-4.
