well after getting myself prepped with Cinemacraft Encoder, I have been reading up on better ways to create my DVD's than the old DVD shrink way (yeurgh!) and various other one click affairs that do it too quickly and do not support many features, ruin aspect ratios etc etc.
So THIS was the software I kept reading about.
Just downloaded onto my win 7 64-bit PC and after installing I get the error 'Bass.dll' is not found on your system, program cannot run'
or something like that.
It seems the program uses bass.dll to encode audio, I think. so why the hell isn't it included in the setup? Or a link to download it, like they do in Popcorn audio converter?
I found a Bass.dll on my PC so copied it to the install folder. tried again.
Program now wont run without Bass_fx.dll and so...yeah, it went on until I had to find ANOTHER bass_xxx.dll file too many. I uninstalled it.
Cr-p.
So if you have 64-bit Win 7 and it works...help me out here!

For convert Avi to DVD this program is on par with AVStoDVD, always flawless convertions! The problem of this app is the lack of populartity, because is one os the best tools to easily convert with high quality.
The best of is kind.

What can I say besides that if this programme would cost $ 200, I would get it.It gives far better quality than DOZENS of other AIO DVD creators like WinAvi, DVD Flick (what a joke programme), Avi2DVD, ConvertX, Xilsoft, you name it, I have tried over 30.CCE totally SUX, I cannot believe the hype about it.It adds noise to the picture and is noticeably worse than HCencoder in lower bitrates.It makes the picture look greasy like an olive oil painting (yuck), especially when creating a PAL DVD from a HD content like x264/mkv.Furthermore, Canopus Procoder surpasses both CCE and Hce by a huge margin, I swear that there is no other encoder similar to it in terms of picture quality, maybe TMPGENC, but I have to test it thoroughly.Although very slow, The Film Machine does the job like nothing else.Creating vts, encoding audio is very slow, multiplexing as well...Forget it to make use of your 4 / 6 core CPU.I would like to see more instances to be set.

Been using this for over a year now and it produces unfailingly excellent results. Install Klite Full last and select as many codec boxes it will allow and you are good to go. Handles mkv, avi/xvid even vob no problem. Both HC and QU free encoders produces outstanding results in 2-pass HQ mode although my preference is HC as it has the preview window. I do wish it [ or the enoders] could utilize more of the i7's cores like Handbrake and TMPGEnc does. I've tried StaxRip and FAVC and found TFM consistently better IMO.
Not sure if this is possible but would be nice to see x264 encoder included since I've read it produces even better quallity at lower bitrates. I think unsuccesfull install prevents this great tool from being more popular so if something could be done here to simplify would help.
