Hi Kerry 56, hope you had a great Xmas & I wish you & your family the very best for 2012.
I’m hoping you can give me some yardsticks to follow regarding ENCODER settings for SHRINKING some of my original Blu Rays with BD REBUILDER.
My system is is running Windows 7 Professional with an INTEL®CORE™ 2 DUO PROCESSOR E8400 3.00 GHZ-6 MB CACHE at 1333 MHZ with 8GB of CRUCIAL DDR3 DUAL CHANNEL MEMORY. My MOTHERBOARD is an ASUS P5QC and my GRAPHICS Card is a GEFORCE 9800GT with 512 MG of GDDR3.
What do U suggest for ENCODER settings in BD REBUIDER when my Blu Rays need very little compression–say 24 to 28 or 30 GB.
I tried" NORMAL PRIOITY" with the" AUTOMATIC QUALITY" SETTINGS on ALIENS which has about 26 VIDEO files to REENCODE., about 32 GB to COMPRESS. I didn’t monitor the CPU Usage or TEMPERATURE running this but the both times I tried it this way, the computer rebooted on its own . I’m not sure why, an unexpected SHUTDOWN occurred it said aftere I rebooted.
I decided then to try it with the ENCODER settings set to NORMAL PRIORITY(I wasn’t planning on using it while this process was working), HIGH QUALITY (DEFAULT) and ONE PASS (ABR) ENCODING. It took about 12 hours to process ALIENS with 26 VIDEO Files to REENCODE. However the computer stayed running, & did not reboot. It worked fine .
I wonder why it worked at this setting but not at the AUTOMATIC QUALITY Setting I tried firstly. I wonder if I got as good a QUALITY VIDEO!!! What do U think?
I am using an HD 2 TB 7200 RPM SATA lll HARD DRIVE to store the DVD FAB BLU RAY FILES as well as the BDREBUILDER OUTPUT ones.
Is this a Good Setting for the ENCODER in BDREBUILDER for Files over 30 GB?
I understand that the CPU is being taxed quite heavily while this process is working. I use an ASUS PROBE UTILITY that MONITORS MB & CPU TEMPERATURE and FAN SPEEDS on the Case, Power Supply & CPU. The CPU TEMP runs about 38-41` DEGREES while BD REBUILDER is Processing. Is this normal?
Can U enlighten me on any of my comments. It would be greatly appreciated.
If U choose to answer me by way of a THREAD in your FORUMS, that is quite allright.
Many Thanks, Friend
