Title: 2 Pass Xvid encode with VirtualDub-MPEG2
Post by: post2jrh on 2005-09-03 12:15:54
Hi there,

Newbie question coming up...

I need a bit of advice that I couldn't find on the doom9 guide. I'm doing some clean up and re-encoding of some mpeg2 using vdub-mpeg2 1.6 (latest stable). I am re-encoding as 2 pass xvid at about 1300kbs. Simply I need to know if vdub has to do its processing (filters to clean up the footage a bit), on BOTH passes, or can I set fast or normal processing for the 2nd pass, as I'm presuming the cleaned up 1st pass is what xvid uses for the 2nd pass??

Another thing, how can I re-encode the audio as ogg?

You have to apply the filters on both passes. But you could also apply the filters and save with Huffyuv and then do the 2 passes on that. That way you can save some time, but you'll need lots of free space.
