Hi cyron,

4 hours near perfect quality, ~5 hours if the movies are slow (drama, etc.) and about 6 hours max with some loss of quality.
That's all at 704x480(576).

Hi cyron,

Make a little test.
Add the total time for all three movies, enter that into CalcuMatic, and that will give you the average bitrate.
Then, encode a small test clip from one of the movies, at the given average bitrate, and you'll get an idea of how the final encode will look

Run CQMatic again, in "Prediction Only" mode
When it's done, double click anywhere on the log window. That will copy the log to the clipboard, and then you can paste it here.

Question following the thread...

... and what about fitting movies encoded anamorph?.

I'm finding it difficult to fit StarWars episodes V and VI (yesssss ) in 3382726 Kb if encode in anamorph. They are about 250 min. If 704x576 non-anamorph, there will be no problem (Q far below 30).

I'm playing with scripts, and I'll have to take the samples a look (it's a pity that I just have a 21 inch TV set right know, for visual comparisons ) and decide if encode anamorph (what I desire), or non-anamorph and better Q...

I can use 704x576 for KDVD changing 720 for 704 in KDVD Full template for TMPGEnc?

And then, in the script AvisSynth:

Code:
gripCrop(704, 576, overscan=2, dest_anamorphic=true) 
gripSize("LanczosResize")
gripBorders()

It is correct? It's 100% DVD compliant?

Hi Maurus,

352x240(28, 352x480(576), 704x480(576) and 720x480(576) are all DVD compliant resolutions.

Thanks, Kwag.

I can use GripFit filters with 704 resolution and overscan=2?

Code:
gripCrop(704, 576, overscan=2, dest_anamorphic=true) 
gripSize("LanczosResize") 
gripBorders()

Maybe!
Your TV might cut something off on the sides.
Make a small test first.
