What software are you guys using to re-encode mpeg2 at a lower bitrate? I mean specifically from mpeg2 to mpeg2, I do not wish to go to divx or wmv since I plan to use the file for DVD authoring. I just need to reduce the bitrate.
The conventional stuff that is normally used(in my order of preference only for Mpeg2):
1.CCE(Cinema Craft Encoder)2.Canopus and TMpgenc.3.Mainconcept.
Hope this helps.
PS: Read the documentation for each.
Thank you for the repy, TMpgenc seems to do what I want, I will give it a shot and report back on the results.
As an update, TMpgenc in conjunction with ReJig did the trick for me.
