Man, you are the frikkin Emporer Stud of Digital Video!!!

I'm encoding The Pianist with KVCDX3, CQ 35, using merge luma, merge chroma, C3d and Pixie Dust. This puppy will comfortably fit on ONE CD!! 2 hours, 28 minutes, one disc! Whoooah!!

Funny thing, though. I stopped in the middle of the first half of the encode, because the output in Tmpgenc looked awful! But when I played back the sample, it looked gorgeous! Have any of you come across a similar situation?



Is it me, or does that emoticon look like it needs to use the potty??


Thanks again for all your help, Kwag

,Steve

Hi Reno

I was under the impression anything under 50 with the CQ=not good quality. Lower the resolution or choose a 2 cd target.

Later.

Woooah!!

Gotta stop drinking while encoding. The output looks tore up from the floor up!!!

Used file prediction (finally), and have the same length movie within a 784 meg data budget at CQ 56...

I hope

I, as usual, used an unorthodox file prediction method (please tell me this works!)

Referenced total runtime of flick 148 minutes * 60 to get total seconds (8880), divided by total seconds of clip encoded with Sampler (80) =111

Then simply multiplied my output file size by that number. (-edit- I nailed it down to the megabyte!!)

Have another question, (again as usual I hijack my own thread). If I increase my data budget to two CDs, should I double the max and min bitrate to increase quality, or jack CQ up to 80, see if I have breathing room, and then up the minmum bitrate??

Tanks, guys!!
