why is TMPGEnc so slow, i have a 2.4Ghz with 512RDram and not quite sure why it takes so long. I use the wizard to load my video and audio file. I have been told that opening the d2v file created when DVD2AVI saves the project but have had no luck "Unrecognized format" even though in the VFPI plugins the DVD2AVI plugin is listed in TMPGEnc. CAn anyone help me to make this process faster??

hmm...not quite sure what transcoding is?? I am going through the TMPGEnc wizard to create my SVCD compatible mpg.

transcoding means you are converting the video from one resolution or bitrate to another. if you're making svcd you'll probably have to, but just in case...

can you give more details about your process, the tools and hardware involved? for example, i have a dtivo (combo) with turbonet, and when i'm doing 22-23 minute shows (30 min shows without commercials), i use this chain:

ty -> tytool -> vsplitmux -k -> gopeditor -> vsplitmux -c -m -> dvdpatcher (to 352x480, 3.5mbits) -> ulead movie factory -> dvdpatcher (to 480x480, 15mbits) -> nero

that's to do dvd-r, so of course, yours will be different.

i use
ty -> tytool -> vsplitmux -k -> gopeditor -> vsplitmux -c -m -> DVD2AVI (extract audio) -> TMPGEnc SVCD changing bitrate

hmmm, i'm not that familiar with dvd2avi; the only svcd i've made came already set to burn with nero.

just shooting in the dark here: what happens if you try to use the stream from vsplit directly into tmpgenc? sorry if i'm off base here...

That process is probably going to take a while. Are you extracting from tytool with svcd pack sizes?

DGT,
What quality setting are you using?
I most commonly use "motion estimation search" and a Dual Athlon XP 1800 can do a 23 minute show in about 25 minutes.
If you are using "highest quality" it does take considerably longer.
