C.J I havent heard of this one. I said at the beginning of the posts that I used the Creator part of Divx2dvd made by X-oom and could encode and write in around 65 mins an average sized avi file, but I got a load of good hearted sarcasm as you will see. so for those doubters, yesterday I deliberately made a note of everything I was doing, so ignoring the fact that it was a crappy movie, ie. 13 going on 30, this file was an 700MB avi, resolution 512 x 272, the length of the movie is around 1 hr. 37 mins. So it took arond 2 minutes to format the dvd+rw, then 45 repeat 45 minutes to encode and burn - the quality was not "shyte" as someone suggested but very good, admittedly the resolution wasnt so high so that would have made it quicker to do. The one thing that some people dont like about this program is that it automatically sets the aspect ratio but that doesnt bother me. Last night I did, in the end, successfully convert an mkv to mpeg with tmpGenc which took 5 hours, repeat 5 hours!!!!! then I had to open the mpegs with tmpGenc DVD Author which took 30 minutes, then I burned it in the same program which took another 30 minutes, so you are looking at six hours, plus that unprofessional looking menu at the beginning (unless of course you have chapters), so which would you prefer 45 to 75 mins all done, good quality or 6 hours plus. To get rid of the menu, I normally dont burn the mpegs with tmpGenc burner, I open the IFO files up and run them through DVD Shrink, re-author so that the menu gets stripped off and then burn with copytodvd. I only ever use tmpGenc DVD Author with pvastrumento anyway, when I am doing tv rips. Hope I might have helped in some little way!!
