A Lot of people are using Compressor 2 using the same workflow they used with Compressor 1 and they've reported that the 2 pass VBR best ends up looking like crap. Nothing else they've tried to fix the problem has worked. So......it would seem that Compressor 2 works for some and not for others. It is indeed a mystery. The workaround for these folks is to use 1 pass CBR and they're apparently getting better encoding results.

For myself, 2 pass VBR best in Compressor 2 works flawlessly. I export a self-contained QT movie from FCP, video only. Then I export the audio using the "Audio to AIF" command. I use APack on my G4 to compress the audio then transfer the .ac3 file to my G5 via ethernet. I use Compressor 2 to encode the video using 2 pass VBR best, then import the two elements into DVDSP4. I build my DVD and burn onto Taiyo Yuden 8x DVD-R Inkjet Printables, and they'll play on any consumer DVD player I've tried so far, including clients' older players collecting dust in their livingrooms. I never encode with a max. bitrate higher than 7.

And there you have it.
