Look here for a test of One-Click tools:http://www.cdfreaks.com/article/114/1
In light of these tests a question to the DVD2One makers: Are you able to increase visual quality in the future or will you focus on other features?
In both tests they said that constant mode was used for DVD2One. I bet they would have gotten better results with DVD2One if variable mode was used for full movie.
You may be right. On the other hand, at least Gladiator comes as 2-disk edition. On one is pretty much only the movie IIRC, so "constant" compression should have been the right choice for this epic film.
Dunno--I had better results from Variable on that Gladiator/1-disk (Movie-Only).Length/size does not seem to be a sole-criterion for choice of Con/Var...initial encoding and average bitrate (or bitrate variance) seem to have greater influence.Wish I had more technical details...
Wish I had more technical details...
I wish I had a preview...
I once ripped Signs (PAL) with DVD2One at the whole damn movie looks like it's oout of focus.
