Thanks Gordian Knot 0.21b

I completed my first Gordian Knot 0.21b encode and I am very impressed with the results. Thanks to the people who recommended this program, and Thanks to the creators of this awesome program. Now I just need to learn how to chop it in two files for 2 disks.

But I have a more important question that I would like some feedback on. After my encode was complete, it gave me 2 separate avi files, one approximately 1.20 gigabytes (With NO SOUND) and the other file was approximately 1.30 gigabytes (With Sound)

Is this normal when we use 2pass Gordian Knot 0.21b with divX 4.11 codec?

The descriptions on the two files are below, please tell me if this is normal for 2 pass or if I might have did something wrong.

yep. seems normal to me. if you look again, you should also see an audio file (mp3).

the video file with no sound and the sound file with no video have been "muxed" together to make your new complete avi with both sound and video. the two "halves" just weren't deleted after they were used.

if i got the terminology wrong (muxed), it's becuase i'm a beginner here.

You have two AVI files because you didn't set a mark in the "Delete Intermediate Files" check-box when setting up the encoding job.

u should encode again for 1 CD

I think you would be able to fit that movie (at 90min long) onto a CD nicely. You should do it all again and try that.

If you still need to cut it, doom9's got a guide for it. It uses nandub for that.

I think this is a really awsome tool too ^_^

Personally anything below 800Kbps is unacceptable. A 90 min movie should be fine for 1 CD. Anything above 100 minutes should definitely be put on 2 CDs if quality & resolution are your concerns (and they should be)

i think its all a matter of opinion

Yeah, I think what "most" people do that I have seen is do 2 CD when its greater than 110 minutes. I figure some movie are just fun to watch the visuals etc is not as important... so I may do 1 CD for a longer movie... then there are movies with great eye candy so I might want to make it a better quality encod so i go for 2 CD... sometimes a movie just won't do on 1 CD so I do 2... its all a matter of preferences.
