I see they've patched it from 1.4 I see a lot of bad reviews of MCE here on this forum, whereas the reviews are quite the opposite on the DVDRHELP forums.

I would like to switch to MCE from TMPGEnc for speed reasons and the way TMPGEnc will do their new licensing scheme. I don't believe in it and refuse to use it.

Just curious if anyone has used teh newest version yet and what the opinions are.

Thanks!!

LS

Hi lschafroth, to be honest I have never used MCE so I dont really know a great deal about it. However Im sure our Guru's on this site can tell you heaps about it.

That's what I'm hoping. I don't have the time or the talent to do the tests and comparisons. If MCE really isn't up to par, I will have to bite the bullet and stick with TMPGEnc.

@lschafroth,

Try mencoder (and MencodeME GUI or PackShot GUI. )
You'll quickly dump every other encoder, including MCE

BTW, great Atari avatar

The big problem of MCE is that You can't keep bitrate without high peaks or over a minimun (300) when cq encoding.
About quality are to many points of view.
Without filters is very very fast.
I think mencoder is faster without filters too.
It will be released a 2.0 version (i don't know when exactly) with many of this issues fixed.

Thanks, I wasn't sure if 1.4.2 fixed any of the bitrate complaints or not.
I will look into Mencode. Here is the first place I've heard of it.

I've been using Atari computers since 1980. Their video games were secondary for me. Was fun to watch Fleetwood Mac do his onstage solo by hitting his vest in different areas to play music, knowing it was all doen with Atari laptops. hehe
