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.

I'm not worried about how long it takes, I'm just worried that because it's maxing out that it will affect the final quality. – Handalaan Sep 23 '09 at 0:52
I understand your concern, but it should not affect final quality. – EmmEff Sep 23 '09 at 1:05
Any idea what the problem is with transcoding from AVI to DVD then? – Handalaan Sep 23 '09 at 1:17
