I have been attempting to make a compilation disk from my hard drive of clips and I was using Windows movie maker to cut, add transitions, and convert exported project to an AVI file. I was attempting to use TMPGEnc to encode the file to MPEG-2. After 10 hours the file was completed. Following the instructions I've found throughout this site, I was attempting to use IF0EDIT, but it's asking for a .m2v file? In TMPGEnc I used the settings: Stream Type: MPEG 2 resolution:720 x 480 aspect: 1:1 (VGA) frame rate: 29.97 fps rate control mode: 2 pass variable Format: NTSC with interlaced checked Motion search: Super high everything else was left alone. The plan, or shall I say the dream, was to use IFOEDIT and then be able to burn the results using Recordnow. I am in the right direction or is moviemaker confliting with another process?
