Does anyone have a fast machine like AMD 64 3800 or Intel 3400 that
they run TMPGEnc on to convert .avi to VCD? I am looking for the time
it takes to convert/process 1 hour of video. I download .avi (XVID)
TV shows and concert them to VCD and watch on a standalone DVD/TV.
Quality is watchable and not the issue. It takes my AMD 2100 about an
hour to convert what is really 38 minutes of .avi minus commercials.
I would like to speed the conversion process and am looking for info
to upgrade. Thanks.

If you capture the TV show as an MPEG and use womble's mpeg-vcr to remove
commercials, it would only take 3-4 minutes on my AMD 2500.

It depends on a lot of factors but my AMD 3200+ does about 43 fps going
from Divx to Mpeg2 to make a DVD.

I get anywhere from 40-50fps on an Athlon64 3000+ (desktop) and an
Athlon64 3200+ (my laptop).
