I have this evening tried to encode a film about 132mins long in MPEG1 in TMGEnc 2.5 using cqmatic(latest). I am using the folowing script:

LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\Avisynth 2.5\Plugins\MT_MaskTools.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\Avisynth 2.5\Plugins\MaskTools.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\Avisynth 2.5\Decoders\DGDecode.dll")
mpeg2source("C:\We Were Soldiers.d2v",cpu=4,idct=7)

dull = last
sharp = dull.LimitedSharpenFaster( ss_x=1.25, ss_y=1.25, strength=150, overshoot=1 )

Soothe( sharp, dull, 20 )


I loaded TMGEnc with the CQ Pal_plus 352x288 template as i wanted to encode this movie in MPEG1 having not had much success in MPEG2 with HEnc.
Cqmatic gave me a CQ figure final of 89.73, which i suspect is not correct and an error for a film of this size! as the purpose is KVCD output, could anyone answer the following for me please:

All the usual resetting of TMPGEnc and purging of the cqmatic folder had been done prior to prediction.

Can i use this script with KVCD and or TMPGenc ?
Do i need to resize perhaps with Billinear as opposed to Lanczos(4) etc.
Any other help with the error would be appreciated.
The source is DVD.

You're right. It's not correct.

You can use any script with CQMatic.
Check your settings again, specially clearing range on TMPGE before saving your project.
