Heres the log

Code:
Specification Changes 	
[1] The formats for the project file and the template file have been changed. Therefore, project created with the new version cannot be used with older versions.
[2] [Project wizard (Step 4/5)]: in the media pull-down selection, DVD 8.5 GB (Double Layer) has been added, for the bitrate setting and size graph.
[3] In the MPEG system multiplexer, the max. bitrate is written instead of the average bitrate for the multiplexing rate. It shortens the outputting process.
[4] [MPEG Setting - GOP structure]: Even if Closed GOP is not selected, the GOP structure is now compliant with the MPEG standard.
[5] Created MPEG-2: the sequence display extension value in the header is now DVD compliant.
Image Quality 	
[1] Image quality for MPEG-1 with long-GOP, has been improved.
[2] Encoding of scenes using still-image, has been improved.
Decoding 	
[1] Decoding process of MPEG-video is faster.
[2] CRI Sofdec MPEG Decoder can read WAVE files (48 / 96 khz, 16 / 20 bit, 1 / 2 ch).
Fixed 	
[1] Errors related with encoding using multi-thread.
[2] The encoding of MPEGs with GOP structure using only I and B pictures, has been improved.
[3] [MPEG Setting - Video]: The Aspect ratio 2.21:1 for MPEG-2, was set to 2.11:1 .
[4] [Output to file - AVI file / WAVE file]: when clicking the Cancel button in the [Sound Selection] dialog, the dialog was shown again.
[5] [MPEG Setting - Quantize matrix]: if saving an existing template under a new name, it could not be deleted.
[6] [MPEG Setting - Quantize matrix]: if saving a template under no name, memory access violations occurred.
[7] When reading empty files (zero data), it could take a very long time to show the error message.
[8] MPEG source files with invalid data could sometime, make the encoding process freeze.
[9] AVI files created with TMPGEnc, when played with Windows Media Player could stop in the middle, with the message "Invalid file".

ARGHHHHHH....
I hope than old templates can be used with new tmpgenc, else I can see all the newbies rushing here for help

GREAT !
Tmpgenc was already the best encoder for MPEG1 KVCD. And they improved that ?

The templates work fine.
What doesn't work is CQMatic
I'll look into it later this afternoon.

Grab it here: http://up1.fastuploads.info/CQMatic-1.3.10.exe.zip

Couple of changes:

1) Forced X1 (standard. X3 disabled) prediction, until further optimized with new algorithms I'm studying.
2) Bumped version to 1.3.10, reflecting changes that it's now compatible with TMPGEnc Plus 2.524 (2.524.63.181) and should also be compatible with previous 2.5x versions.

Let me know of any problems.

i used the latest CQmatic and Calcumatic to find the cq... but when it activates Tmpgenc the latest free version.. tmpgenc only shows a sample of 240 frames.

Can someone help?

Exactly how
Did you let it run the complete prediction cycle
Also, the latest version of CQMatic is 1.4.03. Is that what you tried

its activating the tmpgenc screen where it shows scenes of the movie.. and I am using the version you mentioned in the post.. rite now there is 864 frames of movie being sampled.. but the frames it is showing seem to be out of order... if I let if keep going will the resulting mpg be out of order as well?

What do you mean by "out of order" ?

Note: I'm warning you, if this is again a stupid question you just ask to spoil people time, I'll have strong discussion in PM about you with Karl.

Watch out Wowie,
You're watching Tmpgenc's preview window of a sliced video: sometimes it can seem "out of order"...
Cheers

Perhaps you can tell me the meanings of "out of order" then because I never saw the preview "out of order" by any meanings I know.
Preview is always the image of what is encoded. And is always correct if you had tested your script before to start wasting your and others time in using it in CQMatic

Calm down Phil.
I meant to say that it looks funny when you are looking at the preview of a sliced movie while it is encoding.
Just that.
And I told Wowie to watch out and not doing the same mistake as in the wmp thread.
By no means I meant to say that just because a movie is sliced it looks out of order.
"Out of order" could mean a "universe" of problems.
Like pink spots all over the movie: it would be out of order too, right?
No reason to sweat.
I was just backing up your theory.
Cheers

Yes... funny... not "out of order".

Right. And did you ever see Tmpgenc preview having pink spots ?

I'll remove the left over test sample on the next update.
It's really unnecesary to leave it, because it was the last test strip encoded on the last phase and really not encoded at the final CQ that the movie will be encoded.
So I'll delete it to avoid any future confusions.

Do you mean that there won't be any .sample file at the end of the process
This file is absolutly needed if you do "predicton" only. Else how can we check the quality and decide to keep the result or not ?

Good point
I'll look into making a small sample after the prediction phases, just prior to the full encode
Then the sample left will be done at the CQ that the movie will be encoded.
Expect CQMatic 1.4.04 that later tonight

Just a suggestion.
The sample file is really helpful when you change to prediction mode only, right?
I mean, if you leave cqmatic set for full encode, I don't see any point in having a sample file.
That is, unless you left it set for full encode by mistake and you want to stop it when it starts encoding, right?
Then I think that it would be cool if you could leave a sample file with the predicted CQ figure, only when cqmatic is set for prediction mode.
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?
I know, I know: I'm nuts .
But maybe something that I just wrote can give someone else a good idea .
BTW, can someone split this thread and put the cqmatic related posts on the cqmatic part of the forum?
Cheers guys.

Not agreed. Let the file anytime as it does not cost anything to let it.
I often launch a prediction on my PC before to go to sleep (prediction take one hour on my PC). In the morning, the encoding is at 30% (I need 7h to encode a movie). If I see that the sample is too bad, then I switch off the PC while I go to work, else I let the encoding go till its end.
