Aight guys, im a newbie, but aint all that lost. I used TMPGEnc to encode an .avi file into an MPEG-2 file with-out any problem. Then i used it for another .avi file that is 110mins and i used your Guide: AVI to DVD. On the last part just before clicking to encode the file, (which AVIcodec showed 25fps, so i used PAL, and showed 110mins), TMPGEnc showed +117% and the file was in red......i also noticed on the top TMPGEnc showed the file to be 25 fps but 293min?!?!?! I don't understand this and the .avi file doesn't seem to be corupt cause it plays just fine in divx. OK so any help would ne much appreciated, thx for yr time.
