Hi

I managed to encode a .avi in to a .mpeg file but it came out bigger than the ori .avi file

Basicly the file i am trying to encode is:

692Mb

And it turns in to a:

906Mb file

what am i doing wrong.

I am using the 352x288-PAL template

PLEASE HELP ME!

The ouput size has nothing to do with size of the orginal but with the settings you put as min/max/avg bitrate for the video (or value of the CQ if you encoded in CQ or CQ_VBR mode).

If you changed nothing to the template, I think you did the job with CQ=70 qs it's the default. This value is too big for the source you have.

Eache source need a different CQ in order to obtain the target size wanted. You must do a "file size prediction" manually or with a tool like CQMATIC (see the corresponding section on this forum).

In the main page:

On the right side. But be sure that you don't use TMPGEnc v2.59!!!
