The 0.75 alpha version can be found in the latest stable AVStoDVD in the QuEnc folder. It adds multi-threading. I've found this an excellent tool for converting HD resolution mkv to standard DVD9. Once you have used AVStoDVD to set things up, QuEnc may be utilized on its own just by making a link to the exe in the AVStoDVD QuEnc folder.

To get proper resize info when sizing down to standard DVD I recommend another old tool, FitCD. I simply change the LanczosResize line produced by FitCD to BilinearResize since I'm sizing down. If FitCD DVD output is set to NTSC 16x9 anamorphic then the resize and border info should produce the correct aspect ratio in the DVD output. The multi-threading combined with one pass CBR at a high bit rate(typically 8500 kbit for a movie 2 hours or less) results in high quality video .m2v file in a short amount of time.

Once you have the .m2v file, apply pulldown if needed, then just use the original audio(if it's ac3 as example) from the .mkv file to author a DVD9 ready to burn with Imgburn. I typically get over 40 fps using this version of QuEnc on an AMD 5200+ dual core PC.

The strange thing is I find shrinking the DVD9 to DVD5 using DVD Shrink or ReJig rivals a 2 pass encoding using HC encode for DVD5. The HC may look a bit better using Best profile, but at a cost of more than double the processing time. I use many apps that use HC and use it with avs scripts via the HCgui, so I'm not rapping HC. It's just that if you are willing to encode to 8500 CBR DVD9 a 120 minute or less film can look awfully good awfully quick using this QuEnc alpha.

I hope the author pics up QuEnc development again because it's a very nice tool.

The Author DVD feature in the Advanced Options (small experimental Authoring App) of this program is great. It converts mpg file into dvd files - no menu and no chapters, just a simple dvd. It does the job well and fast.

I've been searching for another simple dvd authoring program that I can use, until I got to know this feature of QuEnc from a post in one of the forums here. Kudos to the author of QuEnc.

Review by v-sharp on Nov 27, 2006 Version: 0.61 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 9/10 Functionality: 9/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 9/10

This little app gets 10's across the board! Faster than TMPGEnc with same (or even better?) quality! QuEnc encodes look superb on my standalones. A simple one-line AviSynth script is enough to get started; the more the merrier. I do have to reiterate same issue about bitrate as others have posted. With 5000 kbps setting, resulting MPG file showed over 10,000 kbps including audio in GSpot. If your set-top player can handle, than no worries.

Review by kevo777 on Nov 3, 2006 Version: 0.71 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 10/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 10/10

I have used this tool extensively with Cuttermaran and to downsize mpeg2 video from 5000 720x480 to 3000 352x480 in order to fit 6 30 minute shows on one DVD. This tool is horrible. The output is just terrible. Every 10 to 20 frames has about 4 to 8 frames of very blocky images, even using 5000kbits/s. These you can clearly see while running. When I use this to augment Cuttermaran so I can cut on B and P frames, even in 2 pass mode in extreme mode, the output is all blocky. This tool is entirely useless because it cannot encode with any kind of quality. If you need a software encoder, this is not it.

Review by itabb on Jul 31, 2006 Version: 0.70 OS: WinXP Ease of use: 8/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10

I have used this tool. The output mpeg2 file plays well and reports correct time. However when I use Video only it gave a time of less than a third of the correct value. The Audio only output reports correctly.
