Hi gang.  Well im really going to enter my first entry this round, but would
like to know what you all are using to make your mpeg's?  Im using Blender
and using mpeg_encode right now but I don't think I have the best settings
yet.  If anyone has a good param file I would love to take a peak for good
quality.  If you use something else please let me know so I can get the best
quality possible.

Thanks.

a mpeg encoder is fine, but if you want to get good
picture quality you won't get around a semi- or
pro-editing software like VideoWave or MediaStudio.

these are quite expensive, i know, but produce best
results and provide support for additional video
cards (an addon i do also recommend!)

i use povray to render still pictures (mostly 1280x1024)
and animations (normally 704x576 for videotape recording,
160x120 for preview mpegs; ok, these look lousy...).

the original video files are stored in a hw-encoded
mpeg format (i don't know any details, sorry) which
then play with an about 2MB/s rate and look quite good,
way enough for svhs recording anyway.

can your encoder create mpeg files as large as 704x576
pixels? - i don't think this is in the mpeg standard,
but i am curious.

That's valid MPEG-2 PAL encoding. Nice and hi-res.

Funny, I thought it was 720x576... At least that's what Perception VR, Speed
Razor and MAX have as standard PAL video.

720 and 704 are both valid MPEG-2 horizontal resolutions. 768 might be the full
actual horizontal signal, but the left and right of the picture are usually
lost off-screen.

I have some quick info at
http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Network/4453/imp/imp_01.htm

And then if you want to get more into the guts of things, I remembered a lot
from my CD-i days, so found this quickly when I did a Google search just now:

That's right, now I remember... (the horizontal clipping that is)

That's something I had to remember to keep doing when I was doing video
work, set safe frames.
