Hey everyone, Just wanted to take the time to thank everyone that contributes to this site. I am a TOTAL noob when it comes to DVD's and all subjects related. After a few days of trial and error and reading these posts I've managed to rip my DVD's back them up and (for learning purposes) convert an AVI DiVX back to DVD-R. Most of my mistakes where simple little ones and as much as i hate to say it mostly caused by not fully reading the guides. Anyway my only suggestion would be to update the AVI to DVD guide to include a link the the TMPGEnc Common Problems! post. http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/40101 My big glitch (yeah other then user error = ) was that TMPGEnc was over stating the size of my project. Following the instructions (which for the noob wasn't totally clear as to where to find those settings) I found in the common problems link I got my issue resolved. Anyway just wanted to give my feedback and thanks!
