TMPGenc rate control help

like the post before from another user, what is the best to use as has anyone here done a encoding in the default "motion estimate search (fast)" and also done a encoding of the same film in "High Quality (slow)"? if so how much diffrence in quality was there of blocks or that as i am doing AVI "Xvid + DivX" to Mpeg2 and really want help to know is it worth using higher and more time or not really. I heard that the "Highest Quality (slowest)" is not good to use as you actually lose quality on scencs with alot movement in the background that the eye cant see but the encoder can so it wastes bitrate on it (weird)

i would really like help from all you TMPGenc/Plus members out there as i am doing Final Destination 2 and just did a High Quality (slow) encoded and dont wana do it again in the default Estimate search. It will help for encoding of other dvd in which setting to use for the "MOTION SEARCH"

thank you all my english is prob crap to at 18 i still dont no my english very well lol

Highest Quality is only usefull for interlaced Encoding.
If you are transcoding DivX/XviD it depents on your Bitrate and on your filtering/resizing, what to use. On Standard-SVCD i suggest to use High, on higher Bitrates (for DVD), Motion Estimate is enough.

i also tried different things,
and i think the difference aint that big,
only when there's fast action, highest quality will make it look a little better, but for the rest it doesnt matter much, i always use it though cause my pc does it really fast even at "slowest"

hope i've been a little help
