Just wondering what others use. Is it really worth encoding in H.264? I've already encoded a ton of DVDs but was wondering if it were worth the extra 2 hours per encoding. It takes my G5 about 2.5-3.5 hours to encode in AVC/H.264 Video | AAC Audio while it only takes about 30-45 minutes to encode to MPEG-4 Video | AAC Audio. Does it really make a huge difference? Because I havn't tried the latter one yet but I will to see if I can tell any difference in quality. I also set bitrate to 1300kbps and I've seen no artifacts or any kinds of irregualarities in the finished product. Just wondering what settings others use.
