The only problem I ever encounterd was using 'Native mode' after the auto detection advised to select it. Use ivtc and all will be well. This is great software. The GUI is really nice to use. Such a pity development was ceased. I never regretted purchasing the full program as the free lite version was too restrictive for me and older full(unrestricted) versions buggy excepting 2.9 build.

The 3D bit is redundant- who bothers with that? but for encoding episodes in high quality h264 this software is supreme. I noticed no major quality differences to my eyes between using its Fast preset or Very Slow H264 preset. The xvid is quality too. Would have been nice if a mild denoiser was incorporated like RemoveGrain(mode5) for some grainy dvd sources, but I find the build of H264 calms the grain down sufficently, so no need. This tool is still of some major use and better than most of that crapware out there !

To avoid errors in Fairuse Wizard select 'normal' error checking, because if 'agressive is checked sometimes part of the film is discarded, eg you might miss an intro of 30 seconds as it is discarded as an error. Also FU Wizard does make mistakes with the auto detection of interlaced/telecined sources by offering 'native' when it should be offering the ivtc option instead. Just ignore the 'native' option which keeps the frames at 29.97ps(may leave duplicate frames/scene repetition) and select ivtc which 99.9% of the time comes out correct!

The GUI is excellent, especially for entering a 4:3 source iso and you can resize it to 16:9 e.g 720x448 really 16:10 or 1.61 AR and plays on the TV without squashing effect as it is cropped correctly by FU wizard. AutoGK can do the same but my experiment with it cames out looking very squashed. Advantages with FU Wizard are you can do H264 and its own Xvid Build is truly excellent. No macroblocking effects using good bit rates. AutoGK is good using compression tests but I've seen macroblocking at even high bit rates at 2pass or 1 pass quality 90%+ and much more artifacting than FU Wizard. That said the odd cockup can occur usually a bad rip and AutoGK can save the day, if you want an xvid encoding rather than h264.

This is a strange one for me to evaluate regarding NTSC/telecined or interlaced sources as it has been so touch and go with the end result in FuWizard. One interlaced source I did came out with duplicate frames after using the ivtc 'native' option(so I ran that through autogk and was handled perfectly as xvid, but one source a pure telecined NTSC DVD came out excellent after ivtc process with FU wizard as either h264 or xvid, after failing in AutoGK as an avi showing green stripes(cropping issue of telecined source?) at bottom of the video. Progressive sources are always encoded perfectly. Either way if one tool fails there's always another.
