AviSynth 101‎ > ‎

Software Setup

The majority of Windows installs since Vista are 64-bit, because of that, these guides are formatted with instructions for the 64-bit versions of Windows.  If the folder "Program Files (x86)" does not exist on your machine you should use "Program Files" and also use "System32" instead of "SysWOW64".

NOTE: If you wish to simplify the installation process then try out AMVpack, an all-in-one installer package including these tools and a few more!

A. AviSynth
B. AviSynth Plugins
C. AvsPmod
D. DGMPGDec

A. AviSynth
  1. Download AviSynth 2.6.
    NOTE: I also recommend using the latest version of AviSynth MT.
  2. Run Avisynth.exe
    NOTE: The file name will vary based on the version you download.)
  3. Select your preferred language and click "OK".
  4. On the License Agreement Screen you will need to click "I Agree" to continue.
  5. The type of install should be set to Standard on the Choose Components screen.
  6. The Install Location Destination Folder should be: C:\Program Files (x86)\AviSynth 2.5\
    NOTE: Since AviSynth 2.6 is still in alpha I use the "AviSynth 2.5" folder for all the guides so I recommend installing to that directory.)
  7. Once the destination folder is set click install.
  8. When the install is completed click "Next >" followed by "Finish".
