    Go into environmental settings and change the priority settings for the avi reader, or Direct Multimedia File Reader.

    That should solve the problem.

    The output resolution of an mpeg video must be a multiple of 8. For example, 352x288 = 352/8 = 44 and 288/8 = 36. What happened here is that, you loaded the input file into TMPGEnc and the avi had a bad resolution for mpeg but TMPGEnc will automatically take the resolution from the input source! There is a quick fix though. Click the Load button and navigate to the folder TMPGEnc is in, now open the template folder.

    If you want to create VCD, there are 3 files to choose from. They are...

    VideoCD(NTSC).mcf
    VideoCD(NTSCFILM).mcf
    VideoCD(PAL).mcf

    If you live in North America or Japan, then double click VideoCD(NTSC).mcf. This will give an output of

    MPEG-1(VideoCD), 352x240, 29.97fps(frames per second), CBR 1150kbit/s , Audio: Mpeg-1 Layer 2 44100hz 224kbit/s. That will play back in an NTSC VCD compatible standalone.

    If you live in Europe Or Austrailia then double click VideoCD(PAL).mcf. This will give you an output of

    MPEG-1(VideoCD), 352x288, 25fps(frames per second), CBR 1150kbit/s , Audio: Mpeg-1 Layer 2 44100hz 224kbit/s. That will play back in an PAL VCD compatible standalone.

    Just to Note:: The only difference between NTSC and NTSC FILM is that NTSC film has a framerate of 23.97fps, which you usually see on divx!

    Anyway, whichever one of them you want to choose, that should solve the problem with the resolution!

    EDIT: Just forgot to say aswell that in future, click file - project wizard and work through that and it will be much easier!
