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:

Enjoy!

We've been looking for a replacement to Media Cleaner Pro, which is a buggy orphan of a tool these days, for producing MPEG-1 for CD-ROM based presentations. The quality of video produced is fantastic, it is only the batch list functionality that I am having any issues with.

Having downloaded the Batch list maker tool, I have had to do some manual tweaking of the outputted files to generate batch lists that apply *all* of the settings in a given template, not all seem to carry over, in particular cropping and resizing template options are lost. These can be reapplied in a text editor. This is a litle tough as the allowed values for each option are not documented anywhere. The template (mcf) files are a help, but has anyone got a pointer?

Brilliant MPEG 1/2 enocoder which is especially good for producing VCD's. Can also produce DVD format files but this functionality is removed when the trial ends (you must pay a fee after that). However, it'll work forever to create MPEG 1 video and produces the best quality of any encoder for this. There's also a lot of options for advanced users such as the ability to alter GOP structures and the like. Excellent!

I really love this encoder. It may not be the fastest, but it is the best in my opinion. It has a sizeable learning curve for newbies and it took a lot of trial and error for me to figure it out fully. However, I find it is a breeze for me to use now thanks to the numerous guides out there. :)

This new version has a template for 8.5Gb DVD's. I just can't wait until the 2.5 Plus version incorporates this template as I prefer 2.5 over Xpress (AKA 3.0) for my uses. Your mileage may vary though.

Mythos

Great video encoder. Have been using it to encoder avi/divx/xvid videos to mpegs for vcds. So far all that I have encoded works fine w/ my player. Haven't encounter any probs yet since I had it few months back till now. Great tool and no complains cos it's free~! :-D

This product has been around for some time. It's a shame the Author hasn't corrected the problems that result in non-compliant MPEG files. Some people have equipment that requires standards compliant files. Everytime I run across one of these files it's nothing but headaches. Read about it and consider the alternatives seen here;

[i]TMPGEnc: The muscular low-cost encoder has many bells and whistles, but two judging teams had trouble creating technically legal files. Hmm. Thus, we could only partially evaluate this product while wondering what went wrong.[/i]

This is a great encoder! It can convert almost any type of video format. Great functionality, great quality. Gives you ultimate control when encoding a video. Highly recommend!

Although TMPGenc is without doubt one of the best encoders there is, it does NOT produce 100% complient MPEG streams. If your player is tolerant you will be ok but you will have particular problems with the cheap VCD players which do require 100% complience. Use BBMpeg if you want a free encoder or one of the other quality encoders like CCE or Mainconcept if you want to buy an encoder.

My old DVD player also wouldn't play TMPGenc MPEG2s properly either. It would produce a horizontal line, above the line would be correct, below would judder.

I had a thread going at

http://www.videohelp.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=869947

but never really got to the bottom of the fault.

Have you tried the "Merge and Cut" option on the "MPEG Tools" section? That might help you avoid the re-rendering issue altogether.

I'm using the shareware version for now, but I've never had a program crash more than this one. Also, there doesn't seem to be any pass-through options...to remove 10seconds from a two hour movie, it recompresses the entire thing.

Otherwise, very versatile and VERY advanced features. It can do just about anything with MPEG-1, and I can only imagine with MPEG-2 as well.

Wow, does exactly what it says it will do, and it does it well. Great that it gives you 2 weeks to try different things before buying. Teamed it with Studio 8 to capture and edit, Goldwave to edit audio and use TMPFEnc to encode and Author. Great results with this combination.

Didn't work. Tried several AVI files captured via WinDV and had various errors.

One attempt it got to 50% and died with an obtuse error.
Second attempt it got to 50% and then simply ended.
Third attempt it exploded bringing up the XP "send report" dialog.
Final attempt it got to 100% and said 2 seconds were left and then just sat their doing nothing.

I have a 2.8ghz PC with 512MB ram. The AVI's I tried work perfectly with Movie Maker 2 so I'm reasonably sure it isn't the file or my PC.

If you accept the rave reviews here, at least do yourself a favor and try the demo first. I've wasted several hours on this and as soon as I hit the submit on this review I'm uninstalling this mess.

This is by far the best encoder around. A bit slower than a few others out there, but not by much. It has an EXCELLENT selection of filters, better than ANY OTHER program I've used or tested, and comes in handy for restoring video. Just remember that this is a VIDEO program, and it has known audio conversion issues, so do not convert your audio with it. The CUT/JOIN tools are great, and it gives you full control of almost every single aspect of the encoding process. Excellent MPEG2 or MPEG1 encoder. Just be sure to have your settings tweaked properly, as most templates are not very good.

TMPGENC (or "Tent Peg" as I like to call it) is basically the bee's knees, the wasp's nipples, the mutt's... well its good anyway. If you want to encode MPEG 1 or 2, look no further. With possibly only one exception, the quality that can be achieved with this software can only be matched by professional level equipment.

There is a downside. For the newbie, it may not seem to be terribly friendly. The user interface itself is fine and its not difficult to use, but there are so many settings and options, that its overwhelming. But persevere. Here on DVDHelp.com there are more guides than you can safely shake a stick at. Try reading the guides about TMPG itself, they'll tell you what all the options mean. Then when you read the guides that tell you how to convert x into y, you'll understand what's going on.

It's other downside is that its slow. But, its a software encoder, and it is going to take time to do its work. But when its done, the results that can be achieved are worth it. I'm happy to set it up, set it going and go to bed, or go to work. I use an XP2100+, and it'll encode 2 hours of video in around 20 to 30 hours.

The mp2 audio encoding isn't the best either, but you can use other tools such as Toolame for better results.

Extra features are included too: tools to mux, demux, join and so on. There's also a selection of basic filters too: clip, resize, noise reduction, colour correction and more. There's a batch facility so you can queue up all your encodes and leave it to it.

Support is great too. New versions come out reasonably often, not just fixing this and that, but adding functionality and support for new CPU features.

This is definitely the de-rigueur MPEG encoding tool. I use this for DVD creation and I wouldn't be without it. Put it this way, it's so good, I went and bought it!

Enjoy.

TMPGEnc will clip those annoying border lines from captures,resize a 16:9 to 4:3 and vice-versa,mux.,demux. and merge multiple mpegs and more.........

An awesome video tool that you must have.

great tool, beautiful output. Takes a little getting used to, and a little digging for some features, but overall, the quality can't be beat.

And even beyond encoding, as a general mpeg editing software it's a critical tool in the toolbox.

others may be faster, but few are better.
