Default Help !!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm at my whitsend here !!
I'm trying to find the best possible way to make a vcd !!!!!!

My avi's look amazing, but when i convert to mpeg, then to vcd, and i play the vcd in my dvd player, it's all blocky and looks terrible !!!

I've tried everything, but i still end up getting a blocky result !!!

I use divx to encode the avi's.
Divx at 2000kbps 29.97 NTSC
I use tmpeg to encode the avi's to mpeg.
tmpeg 2000kbps 29.97 NTSC
I use vcd easy to make the mpeg's into a vcd.

Is there a template that i should be using that would help me out.

I've read all the tutorials on other webpages, but still i end up with blocks!!!!!

Pentium(R) 4 CPU 1.60 GHz
1.61 Ghz
256 Mb of RAM
Soundblaster Live!
ATI TV Wonder

HELP @!

Does the vcd you created play "blocky" on your PC or standalone dvd player?

The following may help:
-burn at a lower speed
-use higher quality media (Verbatim, Maxell, Mitsui)

1) Use TMPGEnc to encode your .AVIs into MPEG1-VideoCD format - NOT "plain vanilla" MPEG1

2) For compliant VCD, set the Video bitrate to 1,150Kbps and Audio to 224Kbps, 44,100Hz - Perhaps you'd find it simpler to use the TMPGEnc VCD "wizard"/template

3) Use NERO to only burn as VCD (NOT encode, since you'll have already done that under TMPGEnc

Let us know of your success ;>}

Try the following settings in TMPGEnc:

A) Advanced 4:3 525 line (NTSC 704x480), Center (Custom size) 352x240, Deinterlace

B) Video 352x240 4:3 525 line (NTSC), 29.97Fps, Automatic VBR (CQ_VBR)

I tried that also but i still end up with blocks !

could it be the avi that i captured?
could that be the problem?

the .avi looks amazing when i play it full screen on my computer, no blocks no nothing.

but the .mpg full screen on the computer comes up blocky !
I don't even bother burning the .mpg onto a cd if it's that blocky on the computer.

I see other peoples vhs rips and they make mine look like garbage!

i'm willing to send someone the .avi that i captured, if that may help !
