Default "Best" settings for VCD

sponsored links

I've seen plenty posts about increasing VCD quality by playing with the settings. I've just been using the standard TMPGenc PAL template & am not overly impressed with the results when played on TV. Looks fine on PC but you can see the flaws on a bigger screen.

Can anyone suggest settings or a template which will give the best possible PAL VCD results without concern for encoding time.

You can also try XVCD which is increasing the bitrate up a little but also notice that it will increase the file size, also there's SVCD, plus instead of regular CBR you can try multi CBR, that's about it I think and there's also those add feature like noice reduction and a whole bunch of other stuff in TMPG

well if u want a standard vcd, theres not much u can do since ur limited to the frame size and bitrates that are needed for standard vcds, u can try using different encoders and see if they give u better results for what ur encoding, like the other guy said, u might wanna try some filters like noise reduction etc before encoding, sorry but thats all i can think of, hope it helps

use some of the filters. Sharpen and noise reduction/soften all play a key part in mine.

make sure you've set the aspect ratio correctly. Use higher/highest (SLOW) encode method.

make sure interlace/non interlaced (progressive) is set right.

there are many more things but that shud do for now m8. like someone said experiment.
