Do not use this product if you intend to burn DL DVDs. I had issues with DL burning of DVD but it failed always after burning first layer and not to mention pathetic technical support.

I purchased this product 2 versions ago and have never been disappointed. The codecs used are first-rate and produce quality images consistently, much better than similarly-priced offerings and hugely better than the "free" products.

Most of the time I take my old mini VCR camera tapes or old VCR-based movies, feed them into my Toshiba D-VR6KC VCR and DVD player/recorder and cut a DVD-RW copy. Then feed that (and other) DVD into TMPGEnc's product and produce a dual-layer DVD suitable for viewing on European DVD players and TVs (original in North American standard).

Horsepower helps but, no matter the time taken, the output quality is excellent! The interface takes a bit to get used to it, but if you aren't (like me) a video nerd and just want a one-click product ... this is it.

The only thing I don't like is that firing up the program involves it making a quick internet connection to the vendor's site to verify you are licensed for the product. I understand the need to prevent piracy, and as it only takes a second or two it's hardly an inconvenience, but what happens if the vendor goes tits up? Is our investment lost?

Unable to import known good .srt subtitle files, no
information to be found on just what the program is
looking for. Poor documentation in this respect.

Program is improving, but still has long way to go.
