advice on converting AVIs to MPEG-2 format

posted in Encoding

my project consists of the following steps:

1) use theater 550 tuner capture card to rip vhs tapes to hard drive as uncompressed AVI
2) use virtualdub to encode AVIs with FFV1 lossless compression (an optional step i use to save space)
3) use cinema craft encoder sp (CCE) or procoder 3 to encode resulting files to MPG2 format so they’ll all fit on one dvd (otherwise, burning the FFV1-compressed files need to be spanned across two DVDs.. not good for my needs).

seems like a simple process, but both CCE and procoder produce two separate media files, one video and one audio. it seems like another unnecessary step to merge the two files together when i could just have one file with both audio and video to begin with.

anyone have any pointers as to how to make this MPEG-2 conversion a bit less of a headache? i would rather stay away from TEMPGEnc as i am not particularly fond of age-old programs.

ps - i am using nerovision fron nero 7 ultra to burn my video files. reply

You could simply multiplex the audio and video part using simple MPEG tools in TMPGEnc.
Get TMPGEnc (itâs freeware) from http://www.tmpgenc.net (click on downloads at the *top* after you select your language). Open TMPGEnc, skip the wizard. Click on File, MPEG Tools.
For multiplexing audio with video, you can use the multiplex tab in MPEG Tools (MPEG-2 (Program) I think). reply

Sometimes you may need to convert AVI file to MPEG so that your computer, DVD player, video editing program, etc. can handle the format. In fact, it’s quite easy to convert between different video formats; the point here is how to convert AVI to MPEG without quality loss.

Actually, any conversion will ultimately lose quality, but it depends on your video converter tool and conversion settings whether the loss is noticeable or not. If you are using Brorsoft Video Converter to do the conversion, you can keep the same video quality after conversion. reply
