Hi Yoda,

In FitCD, I choose SVCD (480 x 480) with overscan blocks set to 2. Then load the x3 template in TMPGEnc and change the default encode res to 480 x 480, as well. The sample I made looked great. I am now encoding the entire movie and am optimistic that the rest will look great, too.

Do you have a Mintek1600?

Good luck.

100571,

No but my daughter has a Daewoo that only plays 352x240. Thought I might give your suggestion for the 480x480 a try.

Yoda,
If the Daewoo does not play KVCDx3, try selecting 3/4 DVD Full in FitCD and then changing the resolution to 544x480 in TMPGEnc. This works perfectly for me and others and produces great results.

Yep, DVD 3/4 Full setting in FitCD with KVCDx3 works in APEX 600A also.
I tried CQ 12 and its almost same as CQ 30 in a Sony 27" TV.

For a widescreen movie do you need to change the aspect ratio to 16:9 for source and output

Kwag! Great template! I used cq 25 for Art Of War and the display is just perfect ! I think you have finally found it, now if I can just get the audio out of Mediator to work I'll be done. It would be great if DVD2AVI would break out the audio link to the video the way mediator does and TmpgEnc would sync a/v back together without the extra steps.
By the way, any thoughts on the new "superbit" dvds. Looks like you won't be able to get down to 2 cd's with this kind of high res. Eventually all dvd's will be superbit because they will increase the amount of space on the dvd's themselves. Several new technologies are coming to the market soon. Something like 22gb per disk.

Burned some clips with the MPEG1 template as-is (except for some clipping w/ masks), and the video was a scrambled mess on my Apex 1100W.

Tweaking the templates now. I'll make sure to let you guys know how it goes (and I mean it this time!)

For the record, the same encoded clips work GREAT when played back in a Sony DVP-S530D (burned to a CDRW)... slightly blocky during really sudden, fast motions, but I think my source is to blame.

Thanks for the hard work!

For any VCD (KVCD), leave the output aspect to 4:3. For input aspect, if you use FitCD, you don't worry about it. Leave at "Full Screen"

I'll try that right now. The MPEG1 templates work on the 1100W if you lower the resolution to the standard 352x240. The sad thing is, the video doesn't look too hot anymore. It works though. Someone may want to suggest some other resolutions to try.

Up next, MPEG2.

Okay, the MPEG2 template doesn't work as-is. I changed the res to the standard 480x480, and... wow.

Looks a ton better than what I'm used to from SVCDs, BUT the video is very inconsistant. Picture will sway from DVD-quality sharpness and clarity to heavy edge artifacts for seemingly no reason. Edges will "block up" even when there's no motion. It's very strange.

Obviously, the Apex doesn't take kindly to non-standard resolutions.

I'm already using 100% compliant settings, and the MPEG1 quality does not justify the cross-over to non-compliant VCDs for me. If anyone is looking to fit more per CD, though, lowering the res on the MPEG1 template cuts the file size in half (or-- at least it did in all my tests), but you definitely sacrifice some of the image quality.

I'm open for suggestions for further testing on the Apex.

Hi markums2k,

You might just want to go with the SKVCD template for your Apex

Just change the 3/4 to the full ie 544 and it works great on an APEX 1000 and 1500...MPEG1.

Hmmmm why does FitCD show a 16:9 as a 1:1? Movie is Ice Age (DVD Rip).

Because it won't make a difference if you select 1:1 or full screen, because FitCD's script is already feeding TMPEG with the correct aspect.

Kwag,

Thanks for the good job.

Unfortunately, KVCDx3 templates seem not to work with my Pioneer DV-444. I have tested your samples, mine, both in small and full 3/4, both in MPEG1 and MPEG2 but no luck
The issue is that the image is not horizontally expanded to cover the full screen, so the visible part is only 3/4 of the horizontal resolution, although in very high quality .

Anyone there with a 444 had success with the new templates?

Thanks in advance,

Luis
