What can i say.....
Ease of use i guess is decided by your experiance.
But it is definately one of the best encoders if you understand all the aspects & options of it... :)

Overall a very good tool. Although, I was very disappointed with the batch converter. I really wanted to convert a whole folder of files all the same way, without opening each file individually. I tried using the converter tool listed above in the product description, but the output does not work with the current version of TMPGEnc. So, I created a new VB script that accomplishes the same goal. You can download it from here:
