    Hi, i hope this question hasn't already been answered but im having trouble encoding my DivX and Xvid movies. Basically i followed the guide and it all went fine, i even managed to burn a couple of DivX movies however most of the time TMPGEnc makes the files way to large and distorts the size of the move, (I go through the steps with a Lost In Translation Xvid, which is 699MB and about 1h 45m long and on the final screen TMPGEnc tells me that the size is 214% of the dvd and 315 minutes long!) Am i missing a simple step, or is my computer buggered or what?!? Please help

    You need to change the bitrate. Try a bitrate calculator like DV Tool. I always drop the calculated bitrate by about 100 kbps for the headroom needed.

    1 hour 45min is not 315 minutes. i got that problem too, way back, i stop using the wizard.

    i think it should fit if you put the bitrate 5500kbps average.

    I think i found the problem. If i lower the bitrate on the other settings page (i can get away with about 1150 kbs) and choose constant bitrate i can fit the movie on, but the length still comes wrong. If i select 2-pass VBR then no matter how low i make the bit rate it still comes up as a massive file on the final page.

    try making like a 20 minute video, and see how the size comes out. not referring to the meter, sometimes it can't be trusted.
