What Frameservers Can Do

The VirtualDub frameserver supports:

  • VirtualDub video filters
  • Audio displacement/skew correction
  • Audio source multiplexing
  • Range editing (such as selection and deletion)

Unsupported features are:

  • Inverse telecine (3:2 pulldown removal)
  • Audio conversion and interleaving
  • Compression—both for video and audio
  • Filters that introduce a lag (e.g. temporal smoother)

The above list gives you a good idea of what is possible with the VirtualDub frameserver. AviSynth is very extensive due to the high number of plug-ins available out there; with respect to VirtualDub, it isn’t so much what you can do but what you

cannot do with it, for example:

  • Capturing video
  • Audio and video multiplexing
  • Video or audio compressing
  • Range editing

The list is not exhaustive ...
