nuther newbee question .. here goes I did check some of the faq's and didnt find an answer so here goes ..

only two of the templates I downloaded work in tmpgenc :
KVCD-LBR-352X240-_NTSCFilm_-PLUS
KVCD-LBR-352X288-_PAL_-PLUS

the others give me an error when I load them.
"=" is necessary. per 245 line.

what have I done wrong now ? help.

p.s. I am only trying to understand and apply the steps needed to make a nice kvcd ,, My goal is to put all three Matrix Movies on one dvd ,, jeez hope I havnt broken any more rules ..

Open it and find what is the content of this line 245 !

Note: the 3 matrix on a single DVD is possible but probably not the best thing to start as this will be quite difficult due to the nature of movies.

Unless the three movies are the wide screen version, and then each should easily fit at ~1.3GB (video) per movie, even at 704x480
I recal I did the first matrix at 704x480 with the MA script, and it did fit on 800MB with very good quality, so at ~1.3GB 704x480 as KDVD, the results should be far better.

I suspect the quality won't be good unless he does a letterboxed 4:3 encode, which is not ideal when you deal with DVDs. The audio tracks probably must also be re-encoded to lower bitrate which is another thing shouting "NOOOOO" in my ears

on the template

KVCD-ULBR-352x240-_NTSCFilm_-PLUS.mcf

now I opened this in Word and had it go to line 245 .. hope thats the correct procedure anyways. what is there from my download is this.

MPEG.Audio.OriginalFlag_ReadOnly = False
MPEG.Audio.Copyrigh

I have no idea what that all means so to change it woulld be a hack for sure. the only thing I notice wrong is its missing the letter "t" on the word copyrigh

could it be that simple ,, a missing byte maybe by right clicking and clicking on save as. still confused and spinning ..

3 movies at ~1.3GB each, and audio at 192Kbps MP2 (with DSII) will sound sweet
From CalcuMatic ( 6 hour total, with DVD mux overhead ) :

Total Video size: 3,820,876
Total Audio size: 662,400

But again, movies MUST be wide screen versions
I don't remember exactly how long "The Matrix" was. I think it was 137 minutes?
And I don't know how long part 2 and part 3 are, so maybe it will be more than 6 hours of playtime.
If that's the case, then I would only encode 2 movies per DVD, and that would allow even higher video quality and audio bitrate

@rodrx,

Are you sure you saved the templates as "TEXT", and not as "HTML"

The movies are 138mins and 129mins too long.

I would run a quick compressibility test, take a 5% sample of each movie and encode at the lowest CQ value my eyes can bare. With CCE I always use Q30, I don't know what the point is in TMPGEnc, maybe CQ70?

If the compressibility test shows that the movies can be put on one DVD so that the video bitrate doesn't get lower than the one achieved by CQ70, I'd go for three movies per disc.

I even made an Excel spreadsheet for calculating the average bitrates depending on the compressibility, I use it every time I put more than one movie per disc.

I used netscape the first time. right clicked and clicked save as ( all files ) and came up with the errors.

Yes it is. Under CQ=70 I rarely find the result correct. And under 65 I keep nothing. The same for CCE, 30 is the maximum.
