    Is there any way to do both ? I did some reading & it seems possible in Virtual Dub Mod but Virtual Dub Mod is missing some filters I need to get the Video the way I want it so is there any way to encode both passes at the same time in regular Virtual Dub ? I have the bitrate I need & all of that to get the size that I want but I do not want to spend two hours on first pass just to then do 2nd pass for god knows how long

    Not sure what you mean.

    You queue the 1st pass, then add the second, then you can run it sequentially at once

    You have to use 2passes if you need a specific filesize or bitrate

    If you encode to a lossless intermediate first (e.g. lagarith, huffyuv, ffv1, etc..), then use that as input for the 2passes, you can speed it up if your filters are CPU heavy (because you only filter it once instead of twice)

    Are you using xvid?

    It's slightly different dialog boxes for older versions of vdub, are you using 1.9.5 or newer?

    Did you specify "twopass - 1st pass" for the 1st pass, file=>queue batch operation=>save as avi

    and "twopass - 2nd pass" for the 2nd?, file=>queue batch operation=>save as avi

    File=>job control =>start

    I am using Xvid & VirtualDub 1.8.0 & just downloaded 1.9.5 is there anything I should be aware of when encoding both avis ? Or does it do one big avi & just both passes ?

  7. If you are using an older version the instructions are slightly different

    If you're not doing the lossless intermediate, then just use the instructions above.

    What Bitrate Calculator is the best to get the desired size ? My first encode with Virtual Dub went over size a bit I had bitrate set for 699mb but the final output was 703mb & yes I had the audio set up right as well

  10. How do you add to queue in normal virtualdub? I want to do this too but I cannot figure out how to get jobs in job control. For the last decade or so I have been using vdubMOD which has a checkbox to
    "add job for l;ater" option. How to do now on normal virtualdub?

    VirtualDub 1.10.1

    File > Queue batch operation > Save as AVI..
    Give the file a name.
    Repeat as required.
    When ready to process, File > Job Control..
