Was really happy to see ur tutorial. Was waiting for it anxiously since quite a while (ever since u have been mean enough to tease us with those trailer's of urs).
The moment i read ur tutorial i was off to convert some videos of my own. After using Mpegable with ur settings i have realised that (as u have mentioned in ur tutorial) that the end result in terms of file size does turn out to be massive which i feel isnt really that practical. It wudnt really matter (to be honest) how many Duo's one has got as swapping them is always irritationg especially if ur in between an interesting flick and u end up stopping cos of having to switch duos. I agree that to have such great quality certain sacrifices have to be made. But i am still working on quality of video keeping size in mind. This really is a criterion IMO.
As for Sorenson, well, with Version 3.5 u will notice that it comes in quite handy for universal conversion. And IMO i achieve results comparable to wot u have shown (along with smaller file size)....keeping practicality in mind. A little tweaking here and there with it should produce amazing results.
Since u are such a whiz at this stuff i wud suggest (and hope) that u have a go at this proggie as i am sure that u wud be able to achieve much better results.
Once again, thanku for ur excellent tutorial and kudo's to ur efforts and time.
This is what makes HoFo such an amazing place where people are always willing to contribute without thoughts of personal gain.
Cheers 3VW....Cheers HoFo.
