Actually, what you'll need is a TOOL to aid in the process, which CAN be done but

that will require a little enginuity.

I too, think that the Matrix COULD be further worked on. But don't forget, that

a revised Matrix table would more than likely require a revised CQ ratio setting..

at least in my experience, it did, but it will depend on the Matrix table, AND, as

a result, required LOTS more work he he..

But, if you do run such tweaks, best to keep a table of results ie, use Excel, as

I did !!

**Kwag**..

just curious, but in your Matrix tweaking, did you take into account for other

source, ie, Capture AVI (not DVD) ..as I found that in my experience w/ Matrix, that

when I ran test encodes (based on the revised Matrix table) when run w/ an DVD

encode and an AVI captured encode, that the quality WAS in fact different. Some

time mid last year, I ran a battery of Matrix tweaks, and concluded with what I

felt that were TWO of my best Matrix tweaks, and when I encode an Captured AVI

into each, and a DVD in each, I found that one was either blockier than the

other, or one was smoother and grainier (the good grain) than the other.

Some of these LONG and tiring Matrix tweaks were actually memorable. I was up

till 4 A.M encoding various sources. Hmmm, I was thinking about doing some more

work on THAT Matrix I last left off on.. I managed to create even smaller encode

than your

**KVCD** (at least at the time) but I stopped that project due to

other issues going on at that time. I still have it, but it needs work. So in

answering to anydbno1 and other's.., yes, I guess size could be worked on, but

who knows. It would be interesting to do some test comparison though. I miss

working on THAT Matrix. Anyways.. If anything

**Kwag**, Caputred AVI's should

(IMO) have it's own tweaked Matrix.

Have you thougt about that ??

**As for CQ..**
CQ is (IMO) the best encode mode out their.. fast and accurate (if prop. tuned)

when used under TMPG. Don't mistake it to be best w/ any other encoder ie, MainConcept etc.
