I've been following Afterdawn's "AVI to DVD" guide for a couple of months now with no problem, but recently I decided to try Nero Vision Express and am very happy with the way it works. My question is why is NVE so much faster than Tmpgenc. Is there a sacrifice in quality I'm not noticing? I'm transcoding pretty much using the same bitrate and from what I can tell, playback looks identical. In all honesty, I'm under the belief that because NVE is much faster, that in can't be as good. Anyone?
