Cool Shutdown Tool i use alongside CQMatic try it
 
After using ToK quite sucessfully for my DivX conversions i had heard that it had problems with the MA script so i followed a guide for using CQMatic and heard that it was a really good calculator.

I know Kwag is working on a shutdown feature for future releases of his excellent tool but i thought in the meantime ppl might be interested in a tool i found on DVD Digest.

I did a search on there for shutdown tools as i knew they had them as i used to get my DVD2DivX tools from their good site.

This tool is called 'Shutdown Counter' its a real simple tool and works with most M$ OS (I not sure about Windows 2000 though :().

Its a real simple tool what i do is wait until CQMatic works out the best CQ and once the final CQ is found and TMPGEnc begins its full encode i then start this small util.

Say your encode will take 6-8 hours i simple add an hour to the timer and it will shut down after the time is reached.

Enter it in this format: HH:MM:SS <-- Hours Mins Secs.

go to options and select Shutdown and hit go and off to bed u can go.

Try it and see what you think of it. :)

Get it >>>HERE<<<

:?: :?: :?:

WinXP -> Control Panel -> Power Settings -> Shutdown (or hybernating).

Why do you use an external tool for that ?

Lol forgot about that yeah i suppose you could use that but on my XP machine the max time you can have for standby is 5 hours and on my Pentium 3 - 933 Mhz machine it took 7 hours to convert a DVD to KVCD using TMPGEnc so i guess im stuck using that tool.

Mind you it could be good for converting DivX to KVCD as that usually only takes 3-4 hours for conversion.

Anyway if ppl find it useful its there. :)

You can also set shutdown within TMPGEnc :)

Once you have the final CQ from CQMatic prediction, start the full encode manually but set it up as a batch encode, File->Batch Encode->Add->add your project file Run A checkbox now appears near the top of the main encoding screen which allows you to shutdown after encoding is complete :!:

Hope that helps ppl. :)

Lol. That's true ! I didn't even remember that even if I use it once or twice a month when I encode several tv show episode in one shot during the night :-)
