Pal Mpeg2 encoding for ReelDVD or DVD-Lab using TMPGEnc Plus 2.5

 

These settings are for the paid version of TMPGEnc 2.5 Plus, available for purchase at tmpgenc.pegasys-inc.com - I also have a TMPGEnc 3.0 Xpress and TMPGEnc 4.0 Xpress Tutorial

 

The settings and downloadable templates below are ideal if Speed Razor 5.5 Pal and Matrox Digisuite were used to create the original video and audio files.

 

Load the matrox.avi with the browse button, then load the matrox.wav file with the browse button.

 

1. If you are using 2 processors, make settings to double encoding speed -

 

2. On the general tab, make these settings then click the Settings button -

 

3. Set to 2000 min and 8000 max and choose 85% - 95% -

 

4. For best results, change settings on GOP Tab as seen here -

 

5. Set the field order to top field first if using Speed Razor 2000 Pal, this must be done manually with every project as it can't be saved with the template, be sure to do this setting after the source files are loaded -

 

6. Matrox .wav files are recorded at 192kbits/sec, so change accordingly -

 

7. ReelDVD and DVD-Lab prefer a separate audio and video file -

 

8. Save your settings as "DVD (Pal) Your Name" then next time all you need to do is load DVD (Pal) Your Name -

Download a short TMPGEnc encoded clip of my cats (4mb) 16:9 with Sony D35W Pal

 

Download short TMPGEnc encoded 4:3 m2v video file (2.8mb) and mp2 audio file (100kb) of Sydney shot with Betacam SP (right click, save target as)

 

The above clips will be ideal for ReelDVD or DVD-Lab authoring system, the clip is interlaced and ideal for TV playback only! However, once it is authored with ReelDVD or DVD-Lab, the clip looks just fine on a computer as well.

 

Happy encoding!
