Hey, I've spent the last 2 hours searching through the forums and have found a few threads with similar issues to mine, but haven't been able to find a solution. Currently burning a dvd with Shrink, adding Deep Analysis, and using Max Smoothness, it takes about one hour to analyze, and about two hours to encode (the rate is about 1,100KB/s). I'm wondering if it's because of my system specs that cause the slow down, or something different? My PC is an AMD Athlon 1800+, w/ 512 RAM, Pioneer DVD-DVR108. If anyone could help me or re-direct me, I would appereciate that very much.
