Hello, What is it about this template that allows for small sizes? I would think that at this resoulution and a CQ value of 50 the file size would be huge. What I'm getting at is, if I set up these setting in DVD2VCD and select auto VBR CQ is DVD2SVCD going to get confused and pick some CQ value like 10 ? I have been doing some testing and I'm going to try a movie with these template settings and blockbuster, to see what happens, and don't want to go over 1CD, hense the auto CQ.
Thanks

This template is great for up to ~60 minutes on one CD-R. Don't try to put more time on one CD at this resolution. You can put a two hour movie on two CD-R's at this resolution with the KVCD 704x480 PLUS template. Make sure you select 2 CD's as target on DVD2SVCD if you're going to use this resolution.

YUCH even doing it @ 25 CQ did not give me the small file size ??? I thought @ 50 CQ = 60min then a 120 min should be 25 CQ for 1 CD. Nope, still gave me 1.5 GIG. Oh, well

Are you using TMPEG's latest version 2.59 Standard
Some people are complaining about this. If you are, go back to 2.58, or buy 2.59 PLUS. That's what I use.

Depends on the movie, but for movies that are about 90 mins, I think this template looks better than the LBR template (using only temporal smoother) - especially if there's not a lot of movement. I think the lowest CQ I used was around 40, though, and there's still a lot of "artifacting" (not sure if that's the correct term) - lots of blocks/blurring around the subjects in the scenes. On a standard television, though, the picture is fine.

I was able to fit 90-100 minute movies on one KVCD with this template. However, comparing the same movie encoded using the KVCDx3 template at very low CQ (around 10-12 to fit on one KVCD), it's a toss-up on quality, and the latest LBR using blockbuster and other filters gives a pretty good picture too, with the advantage of MUCH faster encoding time.

I haven't tried using the newer filters with this 704x480 1CD template - wonder how much they would help?? Time for more testing - just need more time!!

Cheers, --Tony K.

I'm using TMPG 2.59 Plus. I'll go back to using the LBR template with Blockbuster+nomosmooth+fluxsmooth. I still get wierd artifacts on the objects and words. Now sure what goes first nomo or flux?

But i though on the kvcdx2 1 cd gave you up to 2 hours on a cd. But then you said you could only fit no more than 60 minutes on it. In the past i've made 93 minute movies using that template.
