And are you 200% sure that once you press the autoencode button, you set the radio button to No Target Size (use profile settings) and that in the profile, the mode is set to ABR, Const. Quality or Const. Quantizer?
Especially the former is important.. you never confirmed that you're doing this. My 1P-Intermediate is set to ABR (so downloaded by the autoupdater).. but you MUST change that radio button or all will be for nothing. Unless you set the radio button to that particular setting, the number of passes configured in the settings will be taken.. and since the minimum there is 2 passes, you'll get two passes irrespective of the profile. I've tried this about 10 times now and the result is always the same..

I could not reproduce the error with the same command line. Run update and make sure all components are current.

You're using an encraw release by S_0. You need to use the latest one by squid80 which you can download via autoupdate in megui.

I uploaded some updates in the autoupdate server (x264, profiles, dgdecode and dgmpgdec).
If you encounter some bugs (expecially with dgindex) please report them in the bug report thread.

I finished Russian translate. With Sharktooth's translate MeGUI will have 3 variants of ContextHelp

the description is right. the lower the quantizer the lower the compression.

Yes, i think so too. But for what you set minimum quantizer?? I think nobody set min q to get a frames with good quality, but it set's for "wasting bits". I am right, isn't it?

Actually I already included the swapped descriptions in my local, whenever my next patch shows up and gets included it should be available.

Hi!

I was doing a 2-pass encode (x264) and during the second pass I found out that I was using an average bitrate (1934 kbit) that was too high. My question is: Can I use the first pass stats again, but then with a lower bitrate (1659 kbit)?

Yes, it should be fine.

However, the larger the difference, the worse the quality.

i have ripped a file dvds to my hdd use dvd decryptrt 3.5.4.0 in file mode and when i tell megui to make a d2v from the vobs it stick up a box saying

could not find dvd decrypter generated info file

is this save to ignore or does it require that i rip the dvd in ifo mode ?

is this save to ignore or does it require that i rip the dvd in ifo mode ?
If you have the info file it'll show you the proper audio tracks and languages.. if not, you just have to figure out that info on your own and if you e.g. select track 8 and there's no track 8.. you just won't get any audio.
but it runs without that file, it's just always good to have it. And file mode... if your titleset contains additional content, you realize that file mode is going to get you that additional content (e.g. fbi warning, mpaa ratings and other annoying stuff) as well.. and it has nothing to do with file versus ifo mode.. it's about activating the info file option in dvddec.

I'd appreciate a quick reality check on something... I've been away for a bit, last time I dropped by I saw the beginnings of development on interlaced encoding in x264. AFAICT, this hasn't got far enough to be integrated into MeGUI yet. Am I right, or is it sitting there in some menu that I'm ignoring?

Interlaced has not been added to x264 yet because it slows down progressive encoding.
See here.
