Default How does vidomi compare to gknot?

I pretty much only use gordianknot and I find it extremely easy to use and it gives me great results.
But I've also heard recomendations for vidomi by others members and was thinking about trying it out for the simple fact that it supports distributed computing. However I love the quality I get with gknot and wonder if it would be the same with vidomi.

Here is what I normally encode at;
I use divx 5.02 pro
mp3 @ 128kbps
And I use DVD rips as my source and 700MB as my output size(for 1 cd rips of course).

I would prefer GKNOT over vidomi. For divx 5.02 pro, GKNOT offers terrific quality.

This is achived by splitting the source into multiple segments before encoding. This locks up the codec's ability to freely distribute bitrate across the entire movie. This will have an impact on the quality durring high action scenes.

I don't understand why anyone would do that.

Very very good point!! No one else even mentioned that (other boards that is).

It looks like it's just gk for me.
