So, my question is this. When I'm using AutoGK to convert from .VOB to .AVI my CPU maxes out between 95%-100%. Will this affect the final output video with things such as stuttering and what not? If not, how come when I encode .AVI to a DVD with Nero and it maxes out my CPU, does the final result come out crappy?
Depending on your system performance, transcoding can be very processor intensive. I wouldn't necessarily co-relate the video quality with the transcoder maxing the CPU out. I transcode to AVI and MP4 on a Pentium III 800 and it works great, it's just slow.
