Default TMPGEnc, rip quality

Hi,

i have a problem, and i have tired to find it out myself but having no luck and was wondering if anyone could help me out?

What it is, when i convert a avi file to MPEG-2, ready for it to be then converted to dvd video files, the quality of the file goes from a good dvd rip to a average viewing quality? am i doing something wrong along the way, and when converting it to dvd how can i maintain the same quality as the original file?

Any help would really be appreciated!!!

cheers guys and girls

Paul

One set of procedures (other posters may/probably will suggest alternative methods) would be:

1) Use "TMPGEnc" (or "TMPGEncPlus") to convert the .AVI (DivX-compressed or otherwise) to compliant MPEG2-for-DVD format - Use "TMPGEnc's" DVD wizard/template to accomplish this

2) Use "TMPGEnc DVD Author" (a different program than "TMPGEnc") to easily create the required additional DVD files and structure (and chapters and a menu, if you wish)


**If the combined filesize of the DVD "package" written to your hard drive is greater than 4.37Gb, use DVD Shrink (or similar) to compress


If your O/S is either Win2000 or WinXP, TMPGEnc DVD Author can also burn your DVD. Otherwise, use NERO to burn in "DVD-Video" mode
(As an alternative to "TMPGEnc DVD Author", you could use "DVDLab")


Let us know of your success ;>}

"quality of the video decreases when it is ripped to dvd!"

Naah - that's probably occuring when you convert to DVD-compliant MPEG-2 in "TMPGEnc". Try using the smoothing filters in "TMPGEnc"...
