ScriptClip(" nf = YDifferenceToNext()" +chr(13)+ "unfilter( -(fmin(round(nf)*2, 100)), -(fmin(round(nf)*2, 100)) ).TemporalSoften( fmin( round(2/nf), 6), round(1/nf) , round(3/nf) , 1, 1) ") 


AddBorders(0,72,0,72)

Which answer do you expect ?

We can't know what is running on your PC, how fast is your disc, how big is its fragmentation level, what you are doing with it while it is encoding.

So what can we tell you ? Yes it is normal. If tmpgenc needs 16h, then it needs 16h.

And for a movie of 196 minutes, encoding at 1.61 Ghz, it sounds about right

Change the last line of the MA part from

(3/nf) , 1, 1) ")

to

(3/nf) , 1, 2) ")

and see how long it would take then. Mode 2 is supposed to be faster (and better) than mode 1. I think Kwag changed it because it caused problems with some cartoon?

Yes he did.

Changed scenechange detect from 0 to 1 and "Mode" from 2 to 1 on TemporalSoften parameters. The old parameters were causing some problems on Anime/Cartoon types of movies.
I don't know what the problems were since I've never seen anyone complain about TemporalSoften and anime/cartoons. Mode 2 should produce better quality.

But here I can't see.

Kwag switched from mode 2 to mode 1. The last number in the MA part

TemporalSoften( fmin( round(2/nf), 6), round(1/nf) , round(3/nf) , 1, 1) ")

But you say he should change to 2.

Because mode 2 is faster and produces better quality than mode 1. I don't know what the problem with mode 2 was with MA, but I've never seen any complaints about it. Besides, the problem has been reported only with cartoons/anime, and I'm quite sure it doesn't even apply to every single cartoon/anime source.
