Can I ask a question here:

I have read thru the docs and believe I have read almost
everything. including encodeing tips. Still I have

I have DVD with 3 pass I extract audio to frameno.avi. now
mencoder suggests bitrates. Is this bases on DVD original
dimensions? IE. if I want endproduct in 640 width do I put
in crop 640*???

When I have a movie that I want to resize and de-interlace.
do I de-interlace in the second pass and resize in the
third? pass?
