That was quite a good review Wombler. Thanks.

I’m a little surprised the transcoder could give acceptable results from such a difficult, and long source. This is the type of movie I would always recommend using an encoder instead. But it does seem to indicate that their transcoder has been advanced beyond some of the earlier programs, and will prove to be worthwhile on movies that require smaller amounts of compression.

Thanks, Wombler. A great job!:flower:

About the skin, I’ll accept your suggestion and make the ideal_blue as the default. And I’m considering designing a complete new GUI.

Great Review Wombler

I tested it on Smurfs last night and I noticed it had a Fuzzy look through out the movie.
I will have to test this movie with other software when they are able to see the results.

It was simple to install and use and I will be testing it with other movies soon to see if the Fuzzy look shows on them.

Again Great review Wombler

No fuzzy look here bean55, try it again. :iagree: Any by the way Womblers review was the best. Thanks Wombler for indroducing us to this software.

Thanks Kerry. :flower:

It’s all very subjective and down to personal judgement but no program so far has produced results that I wouId would regard as truly acceptable with this movie (including a full re-encode) although it’s a severe test.

I also produced a full re-encode as the benchmark for quality purposes and used this to assist in the comparison between the output from my previous favourite transcoder and Ideal DVD Copy.

In that context and within the parameters specified in the review I think Ideal DVD Copy stands up very well indeed.

It’s always difficult to objectively describe quality in words as people’s opinions are always different but that’s another plus for choosing ‘Saving Private Ryan’ as a very large number of people will have this title and will be able to run the same tests for themselves.

[B]@Alan1476 [/B]– Thanks Alan. :flower:

[B]@Moonlight79 [/B]– Thanks and glad to hear you’re changing the defaults. The interface is very clean and simple to use and that was the only very slight problem I had.

[B]@bean55 [/B]– Transcoders often have difficulties with animated movies and I’ve noticed this in the past even with a full re-encode on some of the ‘South Park’ episodic DVDs. I haven’t checked out ‘Smurfs’ yet but I’m assuming this is an animated movie.

Yes Wombler it is a mixed one ( animated and real people )

When I redid it last night it came out different, now the first 10 minutes is real pixated and then the rest was fuzzy still. I will be trading out my disc tonight and then retry tomorrow.
I think I may have a bad press one.


#10

Looks like my disc was a bad pressing
The disc that comes in the Combo BluRay/DVD worked just fine.
