Hi i know itsa better to judge yourself but i am just curious on other people's choices.

If you have a movie lets say around 130 minutes and you do prediction at 352x480 and get cq of around 50 or so,do you go to the next lower resolution(vcd) or do you opt for 2 cd's

I know the 352x240 resoultion is decent but now that we are just getting so used to the kvcdX3 templates quality i am just wondering

Just looking for people's choices or hints

Hi biggt,
I usually prefer higher resolution, image is sharper. So if I get a CQ above 56 I stick at current resolution, and don't lower it (even the minimal CQ usually advised is 60).
But with a CQ of 50, I guess I would change to 352x240/288 and CQ-VBR.
Anyway, you can always make to samples, one at 352x480 and the other at 352x240, with similar file sizes, and compare them.
... but I'm afraid you already knew this, and you wanted other recommendation
