How to create an MP4 file from an AVI file using GraphEdit

Back to Support

This encoding process makes use of VirtualDub and GraphEdit. You can download VirtualDub as well as GraphEdit from the Download Section of the 3ivx.com web-site.

GraphEdit works by designing a Compression Graph made up of filters. In this guide we will start with an AVI file that has been encoded with VirtualDub and 3ivx MPEG-4 5.0. The AVI file contains an MPEG-4 Video track as well as an Uncompressed stereo Audio track. It is also possible to have an AVI file with just the Video and a seperate WAV or similar file with the Audio.

GraphEdit - Open your AVI file

Step 1 - Open your AVI file

Drag your AVI file to the GraphEdit icon.

You should get a Graph similar to the one on the left. As you can see, the AVI file contains an MPEG-4 Video Track and an Uncompressed Audio Track.
GraphEdit - Delete unwanted filters

Step 2 - Delete unwanted filters

Delete the filters that are not going to be used.

In this case delete everything after the 'AVI Splitter' until your Graph looks similar to the one on the left.
GraphEdit - Insert Filters Dialog

Step 3 - Insert filters

Go to the 'Graph' menu and choose 'Insert Filters'.

Select the '3ivx MPEG-4 Audio Encoder' and click 'Insert Filter'. Repeat the same procedure for the '3ivx MPEG-4 Media Muxer' and the 'File Writer' in the 'DirectShow Filters' section.

Set the 'File Writer' to write an MP4 file. (e.g. c:\test.mp4).
GraphEdit - Inserted Filters

The Filter Graph should look similar to the Graph on the left.

Step 4 - Connecting

Right click on the first output pin from the AVI Splitter and choose render pin, repeat the same procedure for the second output pin.

Your Graph should look like the one below.

Right click on the 3ivx MPEG-4 Audio Encoder and configure its properties.

Hit Play, and when it is done you will have an MP4 file with MPEG-4 Video and MPEG-4 Audio.
