I was wondering how to view the current file size of an encode in TMPGenc while i'm still in the process of encoding? I want to view the current file size early in the encode process to know if it will fit on one cd before i finish the entire process.

well, when i tried windows explorer, or right clicking and viewing properties, it says 0 kb. I think it's because it's not done encoding. Ive seen other people on here say that their encodes are at XX% and the file size is at xxxmb. I was just wondering how they figured that out.

well, thanks for the replies, but i've tried all of that, and still nothing happens. It just says 0 kb until its done encoding.

What OS do you use? I use XP, and I just click "refresh" and it updates the file size.

Well, I suggest you upgrade, at least to XP home edition.
XP ( prof. or home ) are the most stable ( of the complete unstable branch ) of Microsoft products.

As kwag have said, click on VIEW in explorer and choose REFRESH from the drop down menu. It should work on winxp or 9x

If you have the disk space, do the following.

In Windows Explorer, select the file, control-C, control-V.

While the original is "0 bytes", the copy has the actual file size. When you want to check the file size again delete the copy and make a new one.

You can preview the copy also.

I have done the copy/paste when downloading .AVI files and it works, but i tried it with the mpg during the encoding process, and it wont work, it says its in use by another program or something like that.

To quote from the website:

"TMPGEncCalc is a simple GUI enhancement for TMPGEnc which attempts to get the size of the output file and remaining free space on the target drive while encoding (all in real-time). I say "attempts" because this script relies on calls to the OS to determine file-sizes. Sometimes it can't read the file due to file-locks on the file and reports 0 bytes erroneously. You can attempt to gauge the size by watching the free disk space indicator. The refresh rate of the file-size and the disk-space remaining is slow due to the OS not refreshing this information faster, not because TMPGEncCalc doesn't poll frequently. Sometimes clicking on the TMPGEncCalc window makes it refresh."
