Hi Guys,

Could some1 tell me what's the best settings to use with QuEnc 0.49 to Make KDVD and KVCD as there are so many more options to tweak in this latest version.

Thanks in advance.

The thing that mainly confuses me is for making KDVD on the main setup the Bitrate what to put in there and in the advance settings.

I use PAL DVD Source so these are my settings:

Main Settings

Mpeg-2

Bitrate: ??? Unknown. What should I put

Use VBR: Yes

High Quality: Yes

Use Trellis Quant: Yes

2 Pass Encoding: Yes


Advanced Settings

Use KVCD 'Notch' Matrix: Yes

Gop Size: 15

"Extreme & Slow" Settings: Yes

Max B-Frames: 2

Mpeg 2 Only Settings

Inerlaced Encoding: Im unsure of this setting

DC Precision: ??? Also unsure of this figure

Auto Max Bitrate: Should I put a tick in the Auto Max Bitrate box or set a Max Bitrate???

4:3 Aspect Ratio

Can any1 tell me what the settings should be.

Thanks in advance.

Use these settings for 480x480/576
Code:
Main Settings
[X] MPEG-2
    Bitrate (kbps) (Use CalcuMatic to get the correct average bitrate)
[X] Use VBR
[X] High Quality
[ ] Use Trellis
[X] 2 Pass Encoding
Advanced Options
[X] Use KVCD "Notch" Matrix
[ ] "Extreme & Slow" Settings
    GOP Size (NTSCFilm=24, PAL=25, NTSC=30)
[ ] Interlaced Encoding
    DC Precision = 8
[ ] Force Closed GOP
[ ] Scene Detection
[ ] Auto Max Bitrate
    Max Bitrate (kbps) = (Depends on which script you're using)
    Aspect Ratio = 4:3


'Use Trellis' & '"Extreme & Slow" Settings' are NOT recommended for low bitrate encodings... The quality actually gets worse if you use them.

Thanks for the reply Audioslave I wanted to make a KDVD from a DVD Source at a resolution of 720 x 576.

What the settings still be the same as the ones you suggested above?

EDIT: Also as I want to make a KDVD I thought that my GOP should be 15 so should I use that as my GOP?

EDIT 2: On the Auto Max Bitrate setting. You said it depends on the script you are using. Please could explain this in a little more detail as I will be using the MA Script for my conversion.

What other scripts would affect this setting?

Thanks in advance.

I have never done a KDVD so I don't really know. But from what I've read, if you do a DVD->KDVD encoding you could probably use both 'Trellis Quant' and '"Extreme & Slow" Settings' if you're using an average bitrate above 2000. Do a test with a short sample first .

The GOP depends on your source; use 15 for PAL, and 18 for NTSC.

I don't know about DVD, but the maxbitrate should be the same that we would use in TMPGEnc I think. For SVCD resolution that is 2000 if you're using the MA script, and 2500 if you're using a static script.

I hope I've been able to answer at least a few of your questions . When it comes to encoding DVD's someone else have to help you. I have never done a KDVD encoding .

Thank you very much Audioslave for you help on this subject.

I appreciate your help on this subject.

I use KDVD these days as opposed to KVCD as I have a DVD Burner now and I like to keep my backups as near to as good as quality to their originals.

Thanks again buddy, I hope some KDVD expert can shed some light on the settings related to KDVD.
