I'm trying to backup Initial D the original Japanese version to a DivX AVI file using the Xvid codec for the past 2 weeks. I can convert the video fine and it looks great although when I join the audio to it, it's right out of sync. It also doesn't help that I can't speak Japanese. I use the audio offset figure (in this case -20) reported from the AC3 file extracted using DVD2AVI but it still doesn't match up. I've tried everyfigure from -20 through to +20 without success.
I initially run DVD2AVI to create a project file and extract the audio out of the vobs as AC3. The audio file I'm trying to use is an ABR mp3 file created using the default settings in Besweet.
If it's required, the video is converted from an AVS file created by Gordian Knot and virtualdub.
Before anyone assumes I don't know what I'm doing, I've backed up over 300+ titles including some in Japanese, Chinese and German previously without any issues.
My question is simply "Has anyone successfully backed up this DVD and got the correct lip sync or sounds to picture? If so what audio offset did you use?
Thanks in advance
