as these guys have already mentioned, it really depends on ur pc's specification, obviously if u have a fast pc it will encode quickly. the encoding software and the settings u use will make a big difference too. forexample, if ur using tmpgenc, u can encode a svcd in 4 or 5 hours (with a average pc) if u use a 'constant brite rate' and a low motion search setting, but if u use the '2pass' brite rate setting (it doubles the time) and use a high motion search (slow setting) then its going to take atleast twice as long as the svcd quality will b much better.

it takes me approx 8 hours to encode a average length dvd in svcd format using a Athlon 1gig, but thats using the best quality settings.

I use DVD2SVCD with CCE. I have a 1.2 Athlon, 512mb Ram, 80 gig HD 7200 at ATA133, 30 gig HD 7200 ATA 66 I use the High Quality settings with 4 pass VBR, it takes me about 12 hours for that length of film. I found on a friends 1 gig Athlon with DDR Ram he could do it in 7 hours.

Yeah mate, it all comes down to a trade off betweeen speed and quality, I dare say on your system it will take a dam long time if you go for really high qual, Personally when I use DVD2SVCD I like to bump up the Audio bitrate and I use CCE with 5 multipass VBR so it takes about 15 hours on my 1 gig athlon with 256 pc150 ram and a ata 100 7200 rpm drive. But That isnt a problem I just set it up as I go to bed and when I come home from work the next day day it is ready to burn baby burn!
