Re: Does TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 Re-encode?

Read the manual (FAQ): "Does TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 re-encode the video and audio? Video is fully re-encoded. Audio is re-encoded if you change the format or enable the bi-audio option."

In fact it depends on source, in most cases on its GOP structure. Some videos may be changed invisibly, while others noticeably. Check how looks the video at chapter points, and last frames. Anyway, the video stream never matches md5 after compilation and demuxing.

Don't place chapter marks outside beginning of a frame as it cause nasty pixelation.
