An Illustrated Example Here is a complete working filter. It was adopted from the original AviSynth 1. This example can also be found in the file " invert.
Most of it has been posted earlier actually, but let me summarize it. Which means you can use the same modes that you have used with AviSynth-MT. This meant if you needed to use multiple MT modes, you had to insert all those calls in the middle of your script, littered over many places.
This means you can specify all the MT modes at the beginning without polluting your script. You can even make a SetMTMode. This is much cleaner, and it allows you to maintain all your MT-modes centrally at a single place. Enabling MT The other difference is how you actually enable multithreading.
Uhm, onto the point: You enable MT by placing a single call to Prefetch X at the end of your script, where X is the number of threads to use. If there is a return statement in your script it must be placed after Prefetch.
Compared with mode 1, mode 2 trades memory for MT-safety, but only a select few filters will work with mode 1. If it sees a source filter which has no MT-mode specified at all, it will automatically use mode 3 instead of the default MT mode. When the script is finalized, the only thing the user will have to write in his script is the Prefetch call, all SetFilterMtMode calls will be hidden in a single.
You can find the latest revision here: Report any issues here. Choosing the correct MT mode Please do check if the actual output is correct. Fast but corrupted output is useless. Easy way of checking would be using something like ColorBars, "YV12". Some filters like nnedi3 use some buffers to do their dirty work and with mode 1 you get multiple threads writing data from different frames to the same buffer.
This causes corruption when later someone tries to read from this buffer and gets not what was expected. Hence mode 2 is the "default" mode which should work with most filters, but it wastes memory like crazy take SangNom2 for example - for p YV12 frame, size of temporary buffers is about 10MB, so with 4 threads you get 40MBs on single filter invocation.
Now add some usual supersampling to this and multiple invocations in most aa scripts and If the filter requires sequential access or uses some global storage, then mode 3 is the only way to go. Really, this is a workaround. Remember that MT is only stable as long as you have specified a correct MT mode for all filters.
Instead of the numbersyou can also use symbolic names for MT modes: It is necessary for some filters, and it is usually no problem for source filters, but it can literally completely negate all advantages of MT, if such a filter is placed near the end of your script.
Let us know if you meet a non-source mode 3 filter, we might be able to do something about it, but in general, avoid such calls if you want performance. And of course, insert what you have found into here.
The new caches will save you a lot of memory in single-threaded scripts, but due to the way they work, they will also use more memory than before with MT enabled. The memory usage will scale much closer with the number of threads you have. Just something to keep in mind.
Until a new version of AvsPmod is officially released, use this build. A thousand thanks to vdcrim for the fix. Using too many threads can easily hurt performance a lot, because there are other bottlenecks too in your PC than just the CPU.
For example, if you have a quad-core machine with 8 logical cores, less than 8 threads will often work much better than 8 or more.Feb 05, · Firefox Add-ons.

It works with Wordpress, Google Docs, selections, and text boxes. To call a particular function in this situation, AviSynth's DLLName_function() feature automatically creates prefix aliases; so for example, attheheels.com's bar() function may be called as foo_bar().
