    the DVD encoded with TMPGEnc from an avi is noticeably darker than the original.

    is there any setting I can use to fix this?

    is there any place on the web (the TMPGenc site doesn't offer any help, as far as I can see) that details all the options in TMPGEnc?

    for example, right now I'm using CQ_VBR as the encodingmethod.
    is this better or worse than CQ, or CBR?

    in the CQ or CQ_VBR settings, is it better to have the max bitrate high (at 8000) and put quality at 50% or put quality at 100% and have max bitrate at 5000?
    (trying to fit file on one DVD+R)

    is there any way to accurately estimate the resulting file size for a certain method?

    right now I choose a bright "action" sequence in the film, encode a couple of minutes and do a linear approximation, by hand, but I'd like a better way.

    try QuEnc 0.59 beta2
    you can find it at the software section.

    now constant quantizer mode available.
    just use quant 2.

    save you the worry of tmpg CQ :)

    but there's no onboard filter, so you have to learn avisynth.
