Nope.

Sure
So you don't have to wait for the full encode, and you can preview the sample and that's just the way your final encoded movie will look like

That is, unless you left it set for full encode by mistake and you want to stop it when it starts encoding, right?
Nope

Otherwise you could do something magnificent .
You could rewrite cqmatic for something different.
1st we would choose the tmpgenc.exe path, and a countdown clock box with 05:00 minutes already set but with the ability to change such value.
2nd we would write the length of the movie and point cqmatic to tmpg's project file.
3rd we'dd have a start button on it, as simple as that.
4th cdqmatic would do the prediction modules and would stop with a big noise coming from the built-in PC speaker.
Also there would be an on screen message box stating the predicted CQ figure and it would leave a sample file for us to inspect the quality.
5th cqmatic would still be running with a countdown clock of 5 minutes (or the chosen time from step 1) and with a "start encode" and "cancel encode" buttons that would override the countdown clock.
If the clock reaches 0:00 then the full encode would start. At that point the sample is erased.
If you don't care for checking the quality and you trust your "feeling" that the achieved CQ is ok, you could override the clock by pressing "start full encode". At that point the sample is erased.
If you check the sample quality on your favorite media player and you think it's not good enough you can press the "cancel encode". Maybe you leave the sample for more investigation...
How about that?
You're going to have to run that again Rui, cause I didn't understand a thing

Hmm
But you're already encoding.
How can you guys watch a sample while encoding
I have a pretty fast computer, but when I try to do that, it takes ages to open up the player and then the sample plays with LOTS of hickups...

Nevermind, Karl.
I already did my best trying to put it in English.
Took me maybe half an our to write the post, and when I read it after finished I already knew it would be very difficult for anyone to understand it .
Bottom line: I see no problem always leaving there the sample file.
You could create us a checkbox in the settings panel, so that we can choose if we want it or not.
Cheers guys

Ok, now that makes sense
But I'm not sure if it's worth the effort to add another option, because that sample takes maybe an extra 30 seconds to a minute to encode, and it's maybe a good idea to keep it around for reference

Option -> Task priority -> set "Normal" when active and "Idle" when not active.
This way, as soon as tmpgenc loose the focus (when you select an other app or iconify the tmpgenc's window) your PC recovers its full speed !

What is the reason for so much rage against this poor file ? Let it lives !
(really, it annoys you so much ?)

Yes I might try that because it's really annoying to see all the resources go to the encoder.
It's really not needed, at least on my PC.
And the same goes for other encoders.
Take NuEnc for an example.
Thanks for the tip Phil
