    Encoding AVI's to mpeg codec's:
    TMPGenc
    Canopus
    Cinema Craft
    Ligos Indeo

    TMPGenc is very slow but the video quality is excellent; Canopus and Cinema are faster with the same video quality, I think you have to try all and decide the best for you.

    Lots of faffing about with those programs, ok if you are an expert, but for me i say give WinAVI a try. Its free to try anyway

    The Best For Quality is either "Canopus Procoder 2.0" or "CinemaCraft encoder SP 2.67" but they are Professinal Quality and Quite Advanced and expensive..

    For encodeing Speed "CinemaCraft" is the Fastest Followed by the "MainConcept Encoder".....

    For ease of use then I would suggest Tmpgenc but it is Slow but the quality is good and it is easy to use.....

    For an overall High Quality encoder that is Fairly easy to use and is Very Fast then I suggest the "MainConcept Encoder".....

    I believe It is better to Just learn how to use a High Quality encoder that is more complex ,than to settle with an encoder that is substandard but easy enough for an Monkey to use....

    Encoders that have very few Settings and are overly easy to use are Flawed because there are certain Perameters to Mpeg encodeing that has to be adjusted depending on the Properties of the Source file and too use the same basic settings for every source file will not Produce Optimal results...

    Cheers

    Thanks Minion for thinking im a monkey but we are not all geniuses, i tried tmpg but found it too much effort for the reward. I have made some very good copies with WinAVI so please dont decry it.
