Check your paths. Make sure they are short, and reset your "source range"

I too have had this problem.

I have ran CQMatic on several movies, but each one gives a final CQ of around 89 Is CQMatic set not to go above 90

I prefer high quality video over single CD encodes, so choose to make MPEG-2 KVCD's on multiple discs. I encoded The Watcher (92 mins) and Memento (110 mins), both to fit on 2 80min CD's. Both gave the same final CQ of 89.63 which of course gave me a file size for The Watcher well below the 1600 Mb (including audio) expected.

I have to say that at present, I haven't had a great deal of success with file size prediction in CQMatic Is it not designed for predicting MPEG-2 over multiple discs

Having said that, I am well pleased with the final quality of the resulting discs, which have a quality, IMO, equal to the source DVD

Any ideas on how I can get the prediction right and therefore squeeze a little bit more out of the encodes Kwag...maybe allowing CQMatic to go above 90

I've just noticed 'fix' to latest version 1.2.02. Kwag.... how about an override switch a la Override Default CQ

Thnx for the link, I'll certainly give it a try, but my problem was with the file size being too small not too large I was therefore hoping to be able to up the CQ slightly to get a larger file, but with CQMatic stopping at 89.77, (or whatever), how much to up the CQ by would still be guesswork.
