How long does it take for you to convert about 1,5h movie using ToK and your favorite script. I converted Showtime, duration of movie was 01:35:23 and the procedure took 04:38:21.

Prediction takes about 50 minutes for 2 hour movies for me, the actual encoding takes up to 30 hours for 2 disc 2 hour 704x480 encodes. ...Which makes me think I must be doing something wrong... ...not sure about 90 minute movies...around 20 hours usually, I think..

for me, i've noticed with the script I've been using it's about 4 seconds to encode every 1 second of video; so about 4 hours for every 1 hour of video. not too bad...

Man, anyone got any idea what could be slowing my encodes down so much?? Currently using this script:
Code:
LegalClip()
GripCrop(704,480)
GripSize(resizer="BiCubicResize")
STMedianFilter(10,50,0,0,10,50)
FaeryDust()
unfilter(50,50)
mergechroma(blur(1.58))
mergeluma(blur(0.3))
GripBorders()
Letterbox(0,0,22,22)
LegalClip()
Any ideas?

The higher the resolution, the slower the encode

Yeah Wolfi what resolution did you use? I just got a new computer that's close in specs to yours so would like to know how long it will take.

Thanks

I had a 1Ghz P3 and it took around 17 hours to encode, I just bought an Athlon XP 2200 and it takes about 4-5 hours to encode with 544x576 resolution!

High resolution 704x480 does take longer But 30 Hrs. uff man
you may be just using 3/4 or less of your CPU, go to your System Bios and switch it to the highest CPU setting if thats the problem

the problem is the SD-RAM , i think
it´s the Bottle neck, that slows down the encoding
your cpu works with 200 or 266MHz (FSB), the RAM max. with 133!

For a 544 x480 encode I am looking at a minimum of 12 hours.

For a 352 x 240 encode I am looking at around 6-8 hours

For DVD2SVCD it is around 8-10 hours
