If you can tell us the basics we can help.

1) Why are you transcoding? You're in the Adobe CS area - Adobe CS5 work natively with most formats, so there's no reason to transcode in many cases.

2) What are you transcoding? (Video from a camera? What camera? Motion graphics? How were they exported? Downloaded video? What format is it?)

3) What are you creating? Is this a commercial? A short film? Documentary? It's also worth noting where it's headed. Things are different when things are going to the web than they are when they're destined for the big screen.

We aren't trying to steal your project or your ideas, we're trying to help you. Right now we have a list of SD and HD codecs that are lossy and lossless, different aspect ratios, delivery and editing formats, and there's no apparent rhyme or reason behind any of this. When you go to the mechanic you don't give him a list of parts your car uses, you say hey, I'm hearing a noise when I make a left-hand turn, can you look into that?
