Review by Edwin on Nov 7, 2017 Version: 2.70 OS: Windows 7 64-bit Ease of use: 6/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value for money: 6/10 Overall: 6/10

Can't comment on the quality of the results, because it refused to open my source files, with the obscure message "acmStreamOpen() returned error 512, wave format = 85". I have ACM codecs for the audio format used in the files, and I reinstalled them just to be sure.

User interface is a little confusing at first, but looks like it will contain most features. However the lack of ability to open files that I have perfectly adequate codecs for is a killer for me. Glad I didn't spend 1150 on buying it.

Review by julesh on Mar 25, 2007 Version: SP 2.70 (Trial) OS: WinXP Ease of use: 6/10 Functionality: 4/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 4/10

I made two backup copies of West Side Story (Japan R2 DTS). West Side Story is a hard title to backup due to dance sequences with red chiffon skirts and fast motion. For one backup I used DVDRebuilder + CCE in 2-pass mode. For the other I used DVDShrink with deep analysis plus smoothest motion setting. Everything else was set the same, menu plus DTS plus DD5.1 soundtracks. CCE took exactly twice as long as Shrink and produced results which were only half as good. Okay I could have improved the picture quality from CCE by using extra passes but that would have taken even longer than the four and a half hours it already took. This is not an encoder I would use for backups unless there was no other option.

Review by ntscuser on Feb 1, 2007 Version: 2.70 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 5/10 Value for money: 5/10 Overall: 5/10

i used to use TMPGEnc Plus to do all my Xvid to DVD encoding, as i found it to be very easy to use. but thanks to videohelp's user guides (DJRumpy's to be specific), i was able to learn how to use CCE, and using the guide, it was quite easy.

i do find that CCE adds a little bit of edge artifacts, but changing the quantization scale may help. it is also a lot faster than TMPGEnc, so it is now my encoder of choice (and i've tried quite a few others, including HC, QuEnc and of course TMPGEnc).

i also use CCE with DVD-RB Pro for movies that require high/very high compression.

Review by xycer on Sep 3, 2006 Version: 2.70 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 7/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 8/10 Overall: 9/10

Same quality comparing with TMPGEnc but much faster, so go for it!
