Has anyone tried the newest version Cleaner XL 1.5 and do you find that it encodes any faster than the previous version? I just ordered the 1.5 upgrade for $125 for my aging version of Cleaner XL for my Windows encoding machine. I do a lot of batch encoding of hdv shot footage (Sony FX-1) that I edit in Premiere Pro 1.5.1 and output to a CineForm AVI file. I then use Cleaner XL to make wmvs, quicktime and soon flash files both with and without watermarks and it takes a LONG time to encode, say a 35 minute 1440 x 1080 size, 4300 Kb bitrate 16x9 aspect ratio wmv file with a png watermark in the bottom right corner. Over ten hours in this case, and not much faster without the watermark! Ths is on a Dell XPS 9300 series dual core 3.0 Ghz processor pc. Anybody getting faster encoding times and what are you using as a workstation?
