Just wondering what typical processing times are for people? In summary, this is how I do mine:

-DVD rip using SmartRipper
-Convert to ".d2v" using "DVD2AVI" (this creates a .d2v file and an .ac3 sound file). Caution must be taken to produce a .d2v file that is
compatible with AVISynth's mpeg2dec3.dll pluging. DVD2AVI v1.76 works ok, v1.77.3 does NOT.
-Convert AC3 to mp2 using "HeadAc3he"
-Create a script with cropping/filters for AVISynth
-Load AVISynth Script into TmpgEnc, save the project as "Text" file
-Load the saved Tmpgenc file with "CQMatic", setup for desired output size
-Convert movie (this takes about 4h on my system)
-Multiplex sound (MP2) and movie (MV1) into MPEG-1 non-standard Video CD (MPG)
-Burn .mpg file using Nero.

The actual Tmpgenc encoding part takes the longest amount of time, and it averages about 4 hours for a 110 min movie.

My setup is AMD Athlon XP 2500+ (333Mhz FSB) with 512MB ram and 7200rpm (8MB) HDD. Is that typical/slow/fast?

I presume that the various filters will have an effect on processing time?

I do not understand the purpose of making this "mine is bigger than yours" contest. Can you explain this to me ?

And you presume correctly. It depends also on the resolution used, the priority you give to the process on your PC and a lot of other things. So there is nothing to compare there.

Sorry, didn't mean to offend. I was simply curious in case some of my settings were out of order.

I realize that various factors will influence performance, but 4h for a 110 min movie seemed like a lot. I've heared of numbers like 1.5-2 x RT, with slower systems.

I wasn't trying to "brag" (4 hours doesn't seem like bragging rights anyways )

Maybe he's just asking a "ball park" figure to encoding time, compared to other processors
At least, that's the way I understand it

These guys try to make you think theirs are bigger than yours ! That all.

With tmpgenc, encoding at your rate (0.5x) if quite fast. Except if you encode in 352*288. If yes, you have a problem .

But give at least the resolution you use, the script you have and the avs version also !

Let's compare what is comparable !

you are paying bill Gtax, pck.
with celeron 933mhz (100mhs fsb) and ordinary 5400rpm hdd
it is about 2.5 *movie_time to encode, with resolution 480x576, all filters and slowest encoder options.

2.5 x RT works out to about 4.5h for your system then? I will post my script/settings when I get home.

i haven't done any processing optimization yet, i use all highest values for filters and encoder options.
however, Bill G. can't tax my system and the only time i spend on viruses is reading newspaper articles about them.

( russiansexpat runs on Linux, and is encoding with Linux encoders ( mencoder, ffmpeg, etc )

On my Pentium III 733mhz system, encoding a 2 hr movie at 704x480 takes about a week- but it goes a little faster if I don't have too much adware loaded

On an overclocked 1800xp JIUHB DLT3C Athlon running at 2530mhz real and 221fsb its fast

But even at this using AVS 2.0 and Golddust on max size and 29.976 ... gives you a "feel free to go into holidays"

I wonder how many YEARS it would take to encode a movie in my 1.77Mhz ATARI 400 with 48KB RAM

I think the Commodore was 1Mhz, just like the Apple II
The Atari 800/400 was (is) a faster machine, because it has better sub-system chipsets (ANTIC, GTIA, POKEY, etc.)
