Looks (and probably is!) like another rip-off of DVDx.

I don't know if it is or not.
I was investigating and found out that:

Quote:
Its fast because it uses a Compressed Domain TRANScoder as opposed to an ENcoder.
simply put:
Mpeg ENcoders work by analysing frames in the stream in relation to each other and then converts the images of the movie into frequencies, using a process called DCT or Discrete Cosine Transform. These frequencies are what facilitate "Compression" thus making the movie a Compressed Domain.
Compressed Domain Transcoders work NOT by returning the frequencies back to images (iDCT) then analysing and re-encoding, but by analysing and changing the DCT data within the compressed domain. That is why it is able to be so much faster. However, depending on the movie you are working with the quality difference can be between none or little all the way to ALOT!
1 - I don't know if it is same as rejig, but it seem to me that not, as you can input i.e an avi and obtain a mpg.
2 - It has a lack of some useful features, as set a desired final size. It is constrainded to standard media sizes, or set the desired avg bitrate.
3 - But is is surprising that you can load avs files in a straight way. You can load many individual scripts if each source needs different filtering, or load one avs script with a++b++... instruction.
As you can't set individual personal final sizes, you need to target only 1 vob of 4300 MB. Nothing that you can't manage with the authoring software.
4 - It also mangages audio, ac3 or mp2.
5 - It's really fast despite the avisynth filtering.
6 - If you want another res. different that usual ones you need to target mpeg1 or mpeg2 instead DVD, SVCD or VCD. If you keep 720*576(480) for DVD or in general same res. than your target, it is a flash.
It could be a "one touch encoder" if you include audio in your avs script.
I still don't tested it, but i think it deserves a try.
Sadly it don't permits ASPA techniques (ATM).
