Cool Nice and easy

Excellent prog that seems to do all that is needed - converting, encoding, splitting and joining. Also has good support for addons (can sometimes make conversion times a little lengthy) All in all a good starting place for beginners like me!!!!

Same for me as a beginner. The programme is not too hard to get to grips with and seems to do all the tasks well.
I suppose the encoding bit is the bugbear having to wait for hours for it to encode the files.
I'm thinking of building a machine just for this sole purpose, then I can carry on doing other things on my main PC.

I don't use this program to convert, I juste use it for the MPGtools. I have to multiplex and cut my VCD's with this programs. I never had any problems with it. It's a very reliable program.

Easy to use, just excellent picture quality! But soooo slow!
Well my Pentium2 could be the answer to that.... but I also have to say that it does not actually slow down the computer.
Great program!

Question how to improve picture quality

Hello,

I'm editing my own videos with adobe premiere 6 and I'm just wondering how to get as max qualitiy as possible on a DVD.

Currently I'm using the DIVX5.0 Codec to produce a AVI file and the import this avi file into the TMPG Encoder to create the mpeg2 file.

Can anybody tell me which TMPG/DIVX5.0 - settings result in best picture quality ?

Thanks for each post!

Well It does slow down the computer when Priority is Set high because it'll choke out my P4 3.06 GHZ but I must say I can get stuff done with it like that in about an hour and a half

For my 1.4 gig Athlon XP I'm looking at a 17 hour run for a High Quality 2 hour captured video. I can cut that down to 4-5 hours by just selecting the "clip" trim the "noise lines" off the top, bottom and sides (don't have a stand-alone DVD player). The end product is awesome...love the tools...but wish they'd make a patch to accept LPCM (like ULead did for VideoStudio).

17 hours? What else do you have running in the background because it really should take that long. what I do is I close out everything before I go to bed then I set the priority to high and by the morning it is done

Guess that's what your extra 2 gigs gets you...if I just select clip and knock a few lines off the margins I get a 4-5 hr overnite run...if I select noise and high quality video it's a 17hr run...it's why I'm grateful for a 2nd computer.

I'm changing my rating for TMPGenc from 4 out of 5 to 5 out of 5. I just learned how to use it to change LPCM audio to PCM AND how to get it to write headers on a headerless video stream. An absolutely Fabulus product. For details see my post "Use TMPGenc to Convert/Render" in the Dazzle DVC-150 General forum. (Go to Dazzle home page...click support...click community forums.) Using TMPGenc I can make copies using the 150 external capture device that's as good as any I've seen made by internal cards.

It's simply the best mpeg encoder i've ever try. It gives very good svcd and vcd videos clips. I like this software.

Default Renecode an existing mpeg2 using Tmpgenc to reduce the size of the original MPEG2 fil

HI there,

I have been using the program ReMPEG2 V. 1.52 for about two years with great success, however I am having a problem now . I have edited my own movie in Adobe 6.5 then exported it as MPEG2 which creates a MPEG file of about 6 gig excluding the .wav file of 1.2GB

When I look at the MPEG files after I recompressed it in ReMPEG2 down to 3GB the MPEG plays fine but it is only 1 hour and 15 min instead of the original 1 hour and 55 min. When I look at the original Mpeg it is definitely 1hour 55 minutes just like the .wav is.

So now I decided to try out TMPGEnc using version 2.520.54.163 which seems far more complicated with all these options than ReMPEG2. I am looking for the option that will allow me to adjust the scale factor for the bit rate. So in my example above I would slide the slider down to 50% in order for my MPEG to reduce in size to 3GB from 6GB Where is the option in TMPGEnc.

Another question:

I see there is an option ES (video & audio) and system (video & audio) what the difference and will this also compress the .wav file as well as the MPEG2 file? And will it still play fine after I have burn the DVD using Impression pro

Thanks for your help
-Steven
