    TMPGenc 2.5 or XPress 3 are very good, but you need a serial to have MPEG-2 encoding for > 30 days.
    And do not expect to make this work in less time than hours!
    More: making a DVD from an AVI is a waste of time. Its quality has already been spolied by the 4.5 GB VOB --> 700/900 MB AVI process.
    Making a VCD or a SVCD is more fast and gives the same final quality ì, whith the only drawback that 1 CD-ROM = 80' VCD or approx (you use VBR, not CBR) 50' SVCD.

    aldaco12: I don"t know why you allways say this because it is not exactly Right:

    So you want to ruin it even more by encodeing to VCD?

    I don"t know what DivX/XviD Files you have been looking at but most that I get are Close to DVD Resolution and have Near DVD quality and when I add a couple Filters and encode them to Mpeg-2 for DVD they are very Close to Full DVD quality and that is with 2 90min Movies per DVD.....

    Also VCD and SVCD Formats are DVD Compatible so you can easilly Put VCD and SVCD files on to DVD Without "Re-Encodeing" which is a Lot better than Putting them on to CD-R because you generally have to Put most movies on 2 CD-r"s and CD-R"s Cost just as Much as DVD-R"s but you can Fit 4 Full VCD movies on a DVD-R or 2 or 3 SVCD Movies on a DVD-R....Or instead of encodeing to Mpeg-2 at 480+480 for SVCD encode to Mpeg-2 at 352+480 which is 100% DVD compliant has the same or better quality as SVCD and can Put multiple Movies on each DVD-R.....

    You really should not Consider were the Source File came from (eg: DVD Ripped to DivX) to decide what you are going to do with the File, You should Look at the Quality and resolution and then decide what Format is best to encode to ..So if the AVI file is a High resolution High Quality AVI file then you would get the best quality if you make a Full D1 or Half D1 DVD but if it is a Low Resolution medum to low quality File then maybe VCD would be better because it is allready Low res and low quality......

    Cheers

    VSO's DivxtoDvd only took so long because of your computer. I am running on an almost brand new computer and I can convert a full 700 mb divx file to dvd in an hour. I've also tried winavi and it took just as long and i was very disatisfied with the results. VSO's software is hands down the best considering its free.
