Hi Maurice,
I've been trying to demystify thses settings for quite some time and I have been able to make a little headway but before we start talking details, I have a couple of questions that could help us troubleshoot these mysterious encoding issues.

Mac or PC?
What Encoding Software are you using?
HD or SD or Both?
What codec are you currently using to feed the Turbo?

I have an all Mac workflow and the biggest factor that I've uncovered that would prevent reliable results every single time is the fact that the Turbo likes CBR MPEG2 files. I have not been able to find a way to encode CBR MPEG2 Files on a Mac. Episode or Sorenson might be able to do this but I do not own either one of those programs.

I look forward to your answers.

hi brain

we use the turbo both in HD and SD
the biggest problem is that my customers have to make the file's
most are working on MAC FCP and some on Avid. the setting that i
tried were MPEG2 VBR 10Mbits and some more settings and quicktime animation works pretty good. one problem of Quicktime animation is that the files are still pretty large. take's a lot of time to FTP and to Transfer
delivery format's are in my opinon not the right answer.

greet Maurice
