Yes, I would expect that even if it used all 526 kbits. For a 718x432
movie you will need at least 900kb/s to approach acceptable quality.
I would do some denoising (pp options) then scale to 352x224.
Even then getting a 2.75 hour movie on one CD is optimistic.

And use the -ofps 23.976 thing that Richard suggested.

We shouldn't have long to wait for 0.90.
