iMovie? Useless?

Has anyone had success working with iMovie? I don't mean pulling in 5 minute clips and making a 10 minute movie.

Batch encoding to MP3 files?

For another question, is it possible to batch encode a whole pile of .mp2 files (or mp3, I guess) instead of doing them all one-by-one? At least an album's worth, the same way I do ripping.

How to create an audio VCD on a DVD?

Is there any way to do this on a DVD-R?

I just got a burner, and it would be cool to have a vast collection of music always accessible. It might even be worth getting a cheap DVD player to...

After contacting mediostream support, reinstalling DirectX fixed it (?!?)

Authoring: NeoDVD will not import MPEG from ATI MMC

Does anyone here use neoDVD Plus? I got v5 and it was working OK... I can't get it to import MPEG2 files from my ATI MMC captures.

How do I determine if there's something wrong with either the...

I'm on a quest for the right software too. My drive came bundled with NeoDVD, which does some things suprisingly well, but not all.

My goal is to capture from VHS using my Radeon VIVO and burn to...

What AVISynth version?

Whenever I generate a script it's incompatible with one of the plugins. I have 2.0.7 and 2.5.1 so far and either GripFit_Preview complains or it won't open at all.

Interesting. I've downloaded a trial of PowerVCR, and though I *could* use this with my current card, it would be cheaper to get it with the ATI card! Is the MPEG-1/2 hardware based?

Thanks

I get the same response from most reviews I've read. (What's MMC, BTW?) It is very attractive to see a MPEG-2 card easily accessible at a nice price though...

ATI TV Wonder: Record video as VCR format or MPEG?

What is the above card like, lately? I know the earlier ones recorded to a proprietary format, but it seems like this one does MPEG-2. Whether it's hardware or not, I can't tell from the box.

RCA 5240P

The new 352x240 template has the exact same tweaks I made to get it to play just right on my 5240P! I thought I was reckless lowering the upper bitrate that low..

Works well.

D'oh! Found the blocks

I found the source of blockiness, it's the SOURCE AVI. However, this leads to a success story of easily fitting Toy Story 2 on a CD, in fact it comes out to about 530 MB at CQ 70. I had it at CQ 50...

RCA 5240P

Whenever I run IVTC on a movie, it tends to jump a lot, if that helps. I've just been encoding straight to 29.97 at 352x240 and it clears up a lot.

I don't find in my encodes that IVTC saves a...

AviSynth

Thanks, I'll have to try that. Not that I really understand AviSynth... what does IVTC do in AVS that TMPGEnc can't do?

IVTC

Nope, IVTC makes everything worse. Very jumpy.

I can only capture at 352x240 (or 288) with my AIMS Lab VHX, but my DVD player doesn't like x480 anyways.

Ah! A success story!

How long does it take to encode for you, on what kind of machine?

How much can you fit on a CD at CQ 78?

What are your high/low bitrates? How do you kill the jumpiness?

BLOCKS blocks blocks.

I did a 13 hour encode, and actually got the 103 min to about 420 MB! 8O But, the thing is terribly blocky.

Files still too big!

After many scores of hours encoding, I finally got one 103 minute movie on a CD. I had to switch to 2-pass VBR with an average bitrate of 913 fps!! I also switched it to 352x240.

It looks *okay*...
