I'm trying to set chapter marks within th file by scanning thru the video. I then try to go to the various marks and resetting them to the nearest I/IDR frame. But VRD likes to constantly crash, even at startup. Every time it crashes it is within the supportfib.dll library.

There is no pattern as to what causes it to crash.

As noted, I do have Win7 up and running. I'll be dead before I go anywhere near Win8, or higher.

I ran into a situation recently where an AVISynth plugin that is being used to frame server 1080i29.97 4:2:2 video to the x264 encoder is broken under Win7. But, the older XP-86 version runs perfectly in my XP-64 box. I have to get with the plugin's author to try and get it fixed. Until then, XP is still needed.

I think you may have misunderstood. The x264 encoder isn't broken in Win7, the frameserving AVISynth plugin is.

I was just mentioning it because I thought maybe with v6 you could just process the whole file in VRD without needing AVISynth.

Only if you will be supporting H.264 with 4:2:2 video in the consumer version. Oh, and also be able to do IVTC.

H.264 4:2:2 I believe we're going to support. IVTC maybe. It's on my list of things to look at, but don't know how feasible it is yet.

We're trying to put a lot of the long standing requests into v6 to make it a compelling upgrade.

IVTC is pretty much a must. The sat feed captures are 1080i29.97, which has 23.976 video telecined for air. I restore the 23.976 original frame rate for storage and viewing. Hence the editing in VRD and then recoding to H.264 1080p23.976. Some source is MPEG-2, which I recode to H.264 when doing the IVTC.

It is going to take a lot of work to duplicate the excellent work that the AVISynth filters provide for doing IVTC.
