Ok i got my DVD burner for Xmas and cant wait to try it out... My girlfriend loves the show the OC and i figure for her birthday in january i can hook her up with DVDs. All the episodes range from 43-45 minutes each and looking at what others have done i can fit 6 on a DVD-R. Now i have Mpeg files at 29fps ~450MB each. I have done lots of divx encoding so i know virtualdub but TMPGEnc is a litttle new to me. I found all of these templates including KDVD NTSC which keeps it at 720x480 at the 23 fps with a max bitrate of 5000..... Now i understand what that means but i am wondering how this will effect these episodes that were originally ripped to 29fps? Will TMPGEnc do the conversion for me? WIll it look right burned on a DVD?

Also to anyone who has done TV show compilation DVDs using TV source (not DVD) is Half D1 ok for quality or will it muddle it up something awful? Also i am designing Menus for the DVD and was wondering how much those affect the space of a DVD.

Any help and solutions would be appreciated... i picked up the Divx>KDVD guide but it talks about CCE which i am not sure about using because of the coding... and also says it will not cover the framerate conversion... All help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Ardent

29.97 fps will also work. But it's probably fullscreen stuff, so much less compressible. But please be aware that many of this TV shows (I don't know the one you're talking about) are shot on film, and telecined. If that's the case, you can recover the progressive frames at 23.976 fps.

Yes you can use it, results will depend on you.

Half D1 is excellent for fullscreen, interlaced stuff. Even progressive stuff can look about the same if you have a not so new TV.With HalfD1 you can get up to 4 hous os interlaced, fullscreen footage in one DVD with great quality.

You are probably talking about my guide... CCE is great and fast. The framerate conversions I was talking about is get a 25.002 fps movies and make it 25 fps (some old DivX have this bad frame correcting problem) or convert from PAL to NTSC Film (25 fps to 23.976), but in the end of the guide I write some tips about this last case.

Have fun!
