October 30 2002 - Version 2.91 DX

The second version of my program is actually a compilation of calculators optimized for use with the various steps of various DVD to DivX methods, as it was created to accompany my Rip-Packs. Nevertheless, most features are also usefull for any other DVD to AVI / xVCD etc conversion. The program was tested under Windows 98SE, Me 2000 and XP with large and small fonts (looks better with small fonts) and is distribued as freeware. The "deluxe" version, in addition to the calculators, features a PCM WAV normalizer.

Current Version : 2.91

If you haven't ever installed a full version of AVICalc then you might be missing a couple of required VB 6 files (they could have already been installed by other progs). If the first two packages give you an error when running WAV normalizer or Resolution calc, then download and install the third, complete package.
