    Ok i have movies i got, i think you can all imagine where from! I encoded the movies using honesttechs encoder then i used tmpgenc to make it mpeg-2. I tried just going avi to TMPGEnc but it didn't work said bad file or something like that! I am wondering if im' loosing quality due to that double conversion, or maybe honestech sucks. Next after i have my mpeg-2 should i conver it into VOB format? ALso wut is best for better quality picture. I have the dvd author to make it vob does this shrink it in size.I am also confused about the difference between mpeg-1, mpeg-2 i converted to mpeg-2 as stated then it said in nero it can't burn it cause dvds dont run in that resolution. GOd i need help im' so confused. AHAa, thanx alot SOme help would be greatly appreciated

    Try Using virtualdub

    1. open the AVI in virtualdub
    2. click video - direct stream copy
    3. click audio - full processing mode
    4. click audio - compression. select no compression pcm and click ok!
    5. click file - save as avi, now try the AVI u save with TMPGEnc!

    Also Check to make sure you have the right settings in TMPGEnc go to Option>Environmental Setting> VFAPI plugin

    Right mouse click on DirectShow Multimedia File Reader and select Higher Priority. Repeat this until it gets to the top of the list.



    When you open TMPGEnc, you will get the wizard, you can use this to easily make this. Just choose Svcd or VCD (PAL for europe, NTSC for america). When they ask for the video & audio source, just click browse on the video source and it will automatically load the audio from it.

    Click next, and click other settings. Change motion search precision to Highest Quality.

    Click next a few more times and TMPGEnc will start encoding.

    When its finished, it will be bigger than 800mb so click file - mpeg tools. Click merge and cut.

    Click add and browse for the movies you just created with TMPGEnc. When it loads in, select it and click edit. You will see two buttons "{" and "}". Basically mean start and end.

    Drag the slider accross to around 80min and click }. Now click OK. Change the file type at the top to Video CD. Now browse for somewhere to put the output 1st split of the file. Click Run.

    Now when thats done, thats the movie you will have on the first cd. Click edit again. This time, click the { button where you left off last time. Now drag the slider right to the very end and click the } button.

    Click ok - browse for a source to place the output 2nd split. This will be your second cd.

    You now need cd writing software. I will assume Nero Burning Rom.

    Sure the Vob DVD Standard will offer you better Video Quality.

    Just one thing you will have to Author the Mpeg file you created. You may have the Software for this, but if not I would Suggest Using TMPCEnc DVD Authoring..

    you can use dvd shrink or dvd2one to compress afterwards if dvd author makes it too big for a dvd

    yes every time you encode it will lose quality
