    I usually start off at 75-80 but 30min later I drop to around 45-50 and when the movies almost done I am usually at 25-30... is this normal? Check my sig for my system specs... It feels as if the movies encodes at realtime...

    The rate is determined by the settings you use, some settings will get you 2fps, some will get you 200fps for the same material on the same machine.

    The fps you are getting is consistent with the machine you have, and a relatively low complexity settings.

    The fact that the fps is higher at the start than at the end is that the credits at the start are usually easier to encode than the rest of the movie, less movement. The fps does change with the complexity of the material.

    Check the HandBrake Bechmark forums for more info.

    Cheers, Ed.

    I average about 50 using 2-pass H.264 at native resolution (usually 720x480) and 23.98fps.

    Using the new Apple TV preset (H.264, etc) I average 3 fps-ish on my 1.25 GHz G4. I usually start it before going to work. :p

    Wow. That sure is good FPS. I do 2 pass H264 at 480p, and I get about 20-24fps. What kind of Mac do you have? Must be a Mac Pro?

    I have 2.4 GHZ iMac Core 2 Duo.

    Suppose I should have posted that.:rolleyes:

    I'm using a 2.5Ghz G5 Quad w/ 4.5GB RAM. It's about 20x faster than my 1.67Ghz PB w/ 2GB RAM

    I'm currently in the middle of encoding "The Big Lebowski" (88% done). So far I have averaged about 31.38FPS. This is with MacBook Pro with 2.4Ghz C2D. I'm using iPod-presets and I'm ripping straight from the DVD; as opposed to ripping the movie to HD and converting it from there.

    I'm using an iMac C2E and I'm currently at 35fps... would adding ram fix this?

    What about me? Why do I get only approx 20 FPS average with a iMac Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHZ and 3 GB of memory?

    I don't get it :p

    I have a MacBook Core 2 Duo 2Ghz with 2GB of Ram... AppleTV settings... I get 12fps average... pretty poor I think!!

    How does one speed this up?

    Macbook Pro 2.1 Core Duo (NOT Core 2 Duo), 1 GB RAM.
    Ripped with MacTheRipper, then Handbraked using AppleTV preset:

    With Tiger:

    ~9 FPS.

    With Leopard:

    ~12 FPS.

    Wow your framerate is really low! My computer is much faster than that!

    I get 4 fps-ish on my 1.42GHz G4! ;)

    (hey don't laugh it's 25% faster) :D

    Isn't 4 fps, 33% faster than 3 fps?

    I've got a single 1.6GHz G5 PowerMac with 3GB RAM. Using the AppleTV preset, but with 2-pass on, I get about 7 fps on the turbo first pass and about 4 fps on the second pass. I rip straight from the DVD. Pretty much any movie gets done within a day.

    What makes you think that that's poor? Because people like me get 30+ FPS? Keep in mind that it boils down to the settings. I use iPod-presets, you use AppleTV-presets. That means that I encode the movie to lower resolution and with lower bitrates, whereas your settings are considerably more demanding.

    One buys more processing power.

    I recently went to the Apple Store and, using a Mac Pro (Dual Quad 2.X, where X is the cheapest, slowest in the Mac Pro), and converted a download "Desparate Housewives" episode using iTunes.

    Needless to say, it took me a long time (> 1 hour) to do on my MBP what this machine did in, literally, under a minute.

    And who says size doesn't matter?

    oh, okay then hahah i came in expecting to find a solution to my "super slow" processing, it is at an avg 11fps, with the HB apple preset, but i guess that's about right for a 2.0 Ghz MB core 2 duo with 3 g of ram...hmmmm guess this is going to take a couple of days then. I suppose it isn't but never hurts to ask, not here anyways.. is this not bad for my computer? to be on 3 days straight with over 90 celsius the whole time?

    I average 4-11 FPS, based on source and complexity of the encode.

    I get pretty high fps on my Macbook Pro. With all of the default settings I'm getting 35-40 fps

    H264 2pass @ 2500kbps 720x480 (strict anamorphic 1024x576) 6ch discreet audio @ ~380kbps I get arround 70-80 fps

    with mpeg4 (xvid) and all the other settings the same I get 210-240fps
