How to render your video with MeGUI.

MeGUI is a free video renderer which is capable of doing the job in a couple of steps.

First you need to get those files:

AviSynth

MeGUI

MKV Toolnix

Youtube Profile This goes into: X:\MeGUI\allprofiles\AviSynth\

When you fire up MeGui, you first go into Tools -> Settings

Here you set up the default recording folder

In the Extra Configuration Tab you select the updates from the develepment branch and also check Auto Updates.

Next step ist to: Tools -> Update to get the latest version.

In the encoder settings you choose x264: *scratchpad* with the file format mkv.

Now clic the Config button next to the Encoder Settings.

Set the options acording to the screenshot above.

Then go to the Script creator by: Tool -> AVS Script Creator

Now you select the Avisynth profile YT(1920y1080, 30fps)

Then you can choose your recorded Dxtory video by pressing "..." in the Video input field.

Uncheck the Resize Option to not screw up your video.

The output field will show the filename of the script. Nothing to change here.

Click save.

The next windows shows the different ways to open the file.

We choose AviSource (note: if you can't open the file you need to install Haali Media Splitter. At least I did.

This will load and preview the video.

You might close this windows and continue with clicking save in the script creator window.

That will lead to another preview window popping up. You can close that too because you know your video isn't going to be resized and for that matter 1080p.

You can edit the Video Output Name and destination if you want.

Also you don't need to fiddle around with the Audio settings. These are being discussed later on.

Assuming you did everything correctly you can now press "Queue" in the main window.

A small window will pop up showing the status of the rendering.

Congratulations. You are now rendering your video. With the x264 codec you will receive the most tiny output file possible.

The main reason for that is: It's free. (And probably is half the file size after rendering compared to Vegas)

Also most of the steps you only have to do once.

After the configuration it's jsut: Script Creator, choosing the file, queue, done.

Its Free, but there are ways to get non-free software for free.

Personal Preference.

Which I will not discuss here. Either you can afford and pay for it or you stick to free solutions. Which in this case probably are way better encoded.
