The params vi_qfactor and vb_qfactor seems to be exchanged by GUI when compiling command line output.
vi_qfactor must be 0.8
vb_qfactor must be 1.2

hi yaz!!! I'm TTTTOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Fast!!!!

Now I'm working on a prediction function.

Its almost done!

Download the newest version 0.1.0.5 and read the guide btw.

How the precition will work:

First You have to set the goal size.

I tested it in 2Pass Mode.
For this example I needed 3700 MB for a DVD.
The sample size should have 74 MB cos I use 2% of the whole movie.



I start with the bitrate min 2500, avg 4500, max 6500 and got the filesize of 38.2 MB.
next bitrate was min 4500, avg 6500, max 8000 and got the filesize of 61.5 MB.
next bitrate was min 5000, avg 7000, max 8000 and got the filesize of 67.7 MB.
next bitrate was min 5200, avg 7000, max 8000 and got the filesize of 70,2 MB.
next bitrate was min 5400, avg 7000, max 8000 and got the filesize of 72.7 MB. This was close enough to 74 MB.

Now I run a check routine and set the double gobsize as frameoffset. Now I got complete different frames to code.
I take the bitrate min 5400, avg 7000, max 8000 and the checkfile got the filesize of 72.8 MB.

GOAL Finish. I can now encode the whole movie with min 5400, avg 7000 and max 8000.

... plus I can see the quality of the movie if I encode it in this bitrate...

... now I have to find a way to build this great function into DRPEnc...

0.1.0.6 RC1 out! It has the alpha Version of the file size prediction function...

Done!!! 0.1.0.7 is out! Take a look on this prediction sample:

Download Prediction Sample (6.80 MB)

This sample is exactly 1% of the movie. It is a action movie with lots of explosions... and it fits on 1 CD as SVCD in the quality of the sample! It never can get better than this quality of DRPEnc 0.1.0.7!

... till now...

Stay tunend for the next release!!!

I have the feeling this is about to become a marvellous tool!

By the way: your sample from "Ghosts of Mars", starring Natasha Henstridge, is very compressible despite the explosions. I assume, because it's a very dark film.

Ja bb kann sein. Ich werds auch bald in Deutsch anbieten...

Yes bb, maybe. Soon I will release the german version...

I checked again the version 0.1.0.7 and found some bugs.
The ones who downloaded the 0.1.0.7;09:00 Version need only the Update Version to 0.1.0.7;19:14. You can find this on my page.

The ones who didn't download the version can download the complete new package.

Have fun with it.

Back to Ghosts of Mars. DRPEnc finished the Encode. The quality is the same as the sample. I got a 600 MB M2V File. I wanted a 685 MB large file, but this is also OK. So I can add the english and the german audiotracks to this project.

Stay tuned for the next release

@ Amnon82
If I'm not mistaken I would suggest another mencoder binary instead of the one included with DRPenc:
http://mplayer.sunset-utopia.homeip....vs20040227.exe

This hasn't given me crashes anymore on 2 pass, maybe is related to P4 HT enabled... but a least now it works with this.

(my system is rock solid itself, 12h xvid/cce encoding proof)

@unplugged: Thx again unplugged! I'll try this version.
It can be a cos of P4. I'm running AMD...

@all: Some People out of the MVCD-Forum wanted a GUI-Only Release. So it be.

There is still the Installer Version including all apps You need to run DRPEnc. The GUI-Only Release is only the GUI and a readme. So You'll know which addons You'll need to run this Version. Also I modified some apps I use in DRPEnc. You can also download these versions on this server.

[Edit] Updated the mencoder to the newest Version.

Have fun.

BTW. For playing the Encoded Movies I recommend VIDEOLAN.

I released a new version.

Changes:

Now You can setup also the Quantizer values in the Prediction mode.
Plus you can use now more then one disc for encoding.
Also I added new resolutions. 1/2 DVD and make all fullscreen. So if You have a 16:9 Movie You can choose for example DVD16:9to1/2DVD4:3. DRPEnc will zoom the 16:9 source to a 4:3 source with the right aspect ratio.

Have fun.

Soon I'll add Razorblades BitrateCalc to the app.

Stay tuned for the next relese

how can i do that? i've been unable to reach neither divx nor xvid from drpc. what do i do wrong?
afais, drpc is a gui for some command-line encoder, but how could it invoke a dll ? or am i completely mistaken ?
thx for all your efforts, anyway

Bugfixed 0.1.0.9 is out. Sorry about the 1Pass mode.

@Yaz: I upload a MPEG4Trailer created in 0.1.0.9, K?

MPEG4 with All Settings.
LJPEG without Advanced and Preprocessing.
AVS1 without Advanced and Preprocessing.
AVS2 without Advanced and Preprocessing.
MPEG1 with All Settings.
MPEG2 with All Settings.

All other crashes!!! This is a cos of the Advanced Settings and Preprocessing.

Sorry for that. I'll fix this later.

MPEG4Sample encoded in 0.1.0.9-05.03.04;23:01
This is not the best quality. Its only to show that MPEG4Encoding works with this Version of DRPEnc. Sorry for the Quality!

Now Im working on a new Version. I'll call it 0.2.0.0.

Now some asking: Why this Versionsjump?

Cos I redesign DRPEnc totally!

Here is the first Screenshot. Everybody can now test if this GUI with 560x570 fits on his 800x600 CRT

Yeah some guys here have still such one!!!

DRPEnc 0.2.0.0 Preview Screenshot

Stay tuned for the next release...
