this is my first test of AviSynth on Windows 8... these are the steps I used

- I downloaded and installed the latest version of AviSynth
- VirtualDub is running in a folder on my USB thumb drive
- the AviSiynth script was downloaded from HitTheBongo's website... complete with test files
- I replaced the test files with those of my own, opened the script in VirtualDub, saved it to an avi file and added text with Movie Maker 2012

There were no issues or hurdles to get over with the installation and use of the apps and script

avisynth and VirtualDub are Open Source, free for the downloading and use... and I co-authored the book 'Learning VirtualDub', available as a free ebook from Packt Publishing.
