Step 6 - Video encoding
Important: CCE requires at least an Athlon or Pentium 3 processor! Use version 2.50 - the newer versions simply don't work.
Start CCE, right-click in the listview and choose "Add". In the file requester select "Files of type: All files" - and open the .avs file you just created. If CCE crashes at this point, something is wrong with your script. It could be one of the following mistakes:
First rule: Don't touch the settings you don't understand. Disable the "Audio file" and select "Multipass VBR". The more passes, the better quality. Choose either 3, 4 or 5 passes - there's no point in doing more than 5. Enter the average and maximum bitrates you calculated earlier. I don't recommend going lower than 500 for the minimum bitrate.
In the "Video" menu select the correct aspect ratio (DAR). 16:9 is only for anamorphic movies! In the "Quality settings..." menu disable "Anti noise Filter".
So far so good. We are now ready to encode - hit "Okay" to close the settings window, and click "Encode" in the main window to start the encoding. The first window that pops up shows the progress of generating a .vaf file - how long this takes depends on the number of passes. When done, another window pops up, and the encoding starts for real.
