well, i really can't complain about the quality of the new engine. tests showed that the constant copy is somewhat closer to the original, be that good or bad. i like the way of getting closer to the original.
there's one thing i recognized though: the movie amelie (rc2, pal, movie-only) came out in different sizes: variable (version 113) was 4,36, constant (version 120) was 4,11. can anybody explain this? does this have something to do with the removal of "padding data"? (what is padding data, btw?)
