Default faster encoding?

sponsored links

I encoded the movie shrek, a 1hour and 30min film and it took like 4 hours to encode. Is there a faster way? I would really like to know.

You haven't said what your PC specs are or what quality you encoded to.

Using TMPGEnc on the standard VCD template with an AMD 1.4Ghz 512 meg of RAM a 1 1/2 hour film from avi to mpg takes me about 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

It's a long process, the better quality you want the longer it takes.

I think on vcd they said that Flask does encode faster than TMPGEnc but from my experience i saw that TMPGEnc is faster, don't know why but i'm guessing because Flask is design for AMD and I have a pentium so it doesn't work well together?
I have a Pentium III 933mhz
It ussualy takes me around 5 hours to encode a movie
and also ur operating system also matters, i've notice that my win XP encode alot faster than my win98SE

There is an Intel optimised version of Flask.

some of the other major factors that affect encoding time are:

1) resolution of output mpeg - the larger the rez, the more time to encode
example: a 640x480 encode will take a lot longer than a 352x240 encode
2) the use of filters - the more filters u use, the more time to encode
3) rate control mode - 2 pass VBR encodes takes much longer than a 1 pass
4) the encoder u use. i hear CCE is faster than TMPGEnc

u can also speed up ur encodes using TMPGEnc on a multi-processor machine and enabling the "Multithread" feature (Option->Environmental Setting->CPU)

and all this time I have left my 2nd processor just sitting there... had I but known that my dual 6.4ghz processing machine could speed this up... Hey does anyone know if these progs will run on a CRAY?

*for those of you who dont know, this was meant to be funny... not real funny but a little bit funny... similar say to the silly walks sketch from monty python...
