Did a 90-sec sample of a TV show from AVI in two passes. Quality was okay, but I didn't apply any filters at all. I wasn't sure where to set the bitrates, so I used 1500/2500.

All in all, I'm...

I think what is confusing me is that when using a script with TMPGEnc, there is a sort of "doubling" of AR specification. For example, I have an XviD movie that's 640*480 (nice 1.33 AR). If I...
