I have seen it mentioned severeal times, that Recode does not have the Advance Analysis quality setting, in different forums, so I don't know if is something that older versions of Nero Recode did not have. I've been using it for some time now, and I always remember this setting.Nero Recode does have the Advance Analysis option for higher compressions. I have seen in many threads(especially in those silly, pointless ones like "Help me, Nero does not autoburn when I use DVD Shrink"!!!). Tons of people have Nero and have no ideea on how to use it, they just use it to burn music and maybe convert an Avi to DVD using Nero Vision(which we all know what a pain in the arse can be, and even to this day they did not figure out how to make it handle subtitles on its own!). Nero Recode works excellent, DVDFab HD Decrypter and Recode is all I use. Nero Recode is actually I think the only application worth purchasing from the entire bloated Nero package. I use Recode to convert my videos/movies for phone format, mpeg4 for standalone DVD players, backup my DVDs. Although we're talking about a Nero application, I can actually give Recode a 5 star rating out of 5! Edit: I am using Nero 7.
