Like the title says, when I encode a film with TMPGEnc the final result is a lot darker than the original file. Its as if someone has messed with the brightness on your tv.

How long is the movie you are encoding? What format are you encoding to? I had these same problems when encoding large DVD Movie files over 2 hours in length. The preview window is a good indicator of what you are getting. So you could adjust the brigthness/contrast in TMPGENC to your desired results.Look, let me explain something. I'm not Mr. Lebowski; you're Mr. Lebowski. I'm the Dude. So that's what you call me. That, or Duder. His Dudeness. Or El Duderino, if, you know, you're not into the whole brevity thing--
It's a 1hr 40 XVID file with 576x320 resolution.

A darker picture is one of the known issues with the default settings of TMPGenc. The solution, as the previous poster remarked, is to get into SETTINGS -> ADVANCED -> SIMPLE COLOR CORRECTION -> BRIGHTNESS, GAMMA and possibly CONTRAST.
Different MPEG-2 encoders have different default settings for things like gamma and contrast. TMPG's default settings make the picture look too contrasty and dark for my taste; YMMV. MainConcept's default settings seem to make the MPEG-2 output look a lot more like the input. CCE's defaults seem to make the picture look too contrasty. Adjust to taste.
