Cinema Craft Encoder SP (CCE) v2.70.02.06

Commercial demo
Win2k / Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinXP
Cinema Craft Encoder SP (aka CCE) allows you to directly encode AVI, QuickTime and DV files into DVD or SVCD compliant MPEG-2 streams, or VCD MPEG-1 streams.

CCE is one of the fastest encoders on the market, in addition to which it provides the best quality, too -- you wouldn't expect any less from a software with a price tag of $2,000.00.

This is the trial version. It is limited in the following ways:
1. A logo will be inserted in the encoded stream.
2. Encoder control list cannot be saved or loaded.
3. Framewise setting is not available for Quality setting.

This is the latest version. For DVD2SVCD, please use Cinema Craft Encoder SP (CCE) v2.50 Trial instead.

Cinema Craft Encoder SP (CCE) v2.70.02.06

Rating for CCE Basic. I've tried all the modes (VBR, <br/>CBR) with multiple bit-rates all the way upto <br/>15000kbps. The quality is very poor (Sources are <br/>AVI files off a Canon MiniDV and a Panasonic MiniDV). <br/>Using 2.70.01.16. <br/> <br/>In contrast, I just downloaded TMPGEnc (2.525.64.184). <br/>I can get near AVI quality (source) with "Constant <br/>Quality" setting, 15000kbps (min, max both), 30fps, <br/>inverse 3:2 pulldown encode mode, highest quality, <br/>noise reduction, sharpen edge, custom color correction <br/>(brightness and contrast) and double field, adaptation <br/>deinterlacing enabled. The GOP structure is set to <br/>IPPPPPPPPPP (10 P frames, no B frames). The file size <br/>is almost exactly halved (so, I can save a full miniDV <br/>tape == 1hour, onto a single DVD). <br/> <br/>I tried about 7 different iterations of VBR, CBR and <br/>GOP structure to finally settle for the above, btw. <br/> <br/>I've tried similar settings (and all possible combinations <br/>including an I-only GOP structure) settings on the <br/>CCE Basic version and the quality was extremely poor <br/>(I couldn't even make out facial features in almost <br/>all the cases). <br/> <br/>The video is a concert - so, there were no scene <br/>changes or a lot of motion. Given all the reviews for <br/>CCE, I was expecting a lot. Needless to say I'm <br/>disappointed for shelling out $$ to buy CCE. Now I <br/>have spend $$ to buy TMPGEnc as well :-(

this software is GREAT! i use it all the time in conjunction with DVD-REBUILDER PRO. I worked long and hard to get that $2,000 and it was worth it. there is an exceptional guide by alkohol on how to use this fast, agile and extremely good quality encoder to it's extent, with DVD-RB PRO to encode perfect dvd video files, ready to burn with ImgBurn or Nero. The URL is <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.dvdplusvideo.com/Guides/alkohol_guide4.html" target="_blank">http://www.dvdplusvideo.com/Guides/alkohol_guide4.html</a> <br/>please support Cinema Craft Encoder and buy this product, it is really worth it. And, while your at it consider also getting DVD-Rebuilder. There is a free version, but jdobbs worked very hard to create the pro version which is only $30.00. <br/>A++
