Which encoder is faster?
"TMPGenc 2.5 plus" or "CCE SP 2.5 and Avisynth 2.5"?
If it's TMPGenc 2.5 plus, then also...
What's the real purpose of Rate Control Method?
Is it really worth having it set to 2-pass VBR(VBR), or is just a waste of time? It does double the amount of time required to encode to MPEG2.... that's all I know
Also, I'm encoding 24 anime episodes (whole season) to a dvd and each one was 200mb when I started. Now they are all going to be 800mb each seeing that the first two I've finished encoding using this guide: (http://www.easy-answers.com/how-to/anime-dvd/menu.asp) are that big.
I've read that Motion search precision maintains good quality when set to "High Quality", but is it worth it if I'm going to be using DVD Shrink to fit em all on one disk... or maybe 5 seeing the way the files sizes have increased
I was hoping for all 24 on one 4.7gb dvd because the download was only 5gb total. I was going to only leave the english audio stream, remove the subtitles, and slice out the intros-n-credits that are all the same anyways. This should take off atleast 500mb...allowing me to fit them on one dvd. Any ideas?
