Your avisynth script suggests your trying to convert the PAL avi to an NTSC dvdr ? You will always get a Encoded_Video_CCE_PAL.mpv file as DVD2SVCD still thinks your making a PAL encode and doesnot auto addust just because you eddited the avisynth script. Read the PAL to NTSC section in my Tute, it explains all the manual steps you need to take. Turn off any authoring as thats just a wast of time here. Read the Tute again.
