I've been reading a lot of threads in a lot of forums lately about this. Most people say CCE is the best at any bitrate, but some say it's not as good with low bitrate interlaced material. Stuff like tv show dvd's. Lot's of episodes per disc with no extras to cut out. I've read HCEncoder and Procoder are better at low bitrate, but that Procoder tends to smooth the picture out a bit. I love anime so it sounds like Procoder would be good to use for animation only. Use CCE for higher bitrate dvd's and HC Encoder for the low bitrate dvd's. Does that sound about right? Mind you I have Dvd-rb free so I can't use custom matrices and what not. I just installed this software a couple days ago so I'm trying to learn about it quickly. Let me know if I'm on the right track. Thanks.
