Try 3-pass method :

first :

temps='-ss 147'

nice -19 mencoder $fichier -o frameno.avi -ovc frameno -oac mp3lame\
          -lameopts cbr:br=320 $temps

At the end, this pass gives you indications about what bitrate to use if 
you want to save your file on 1 or 2, 700 or 800 mb CD's.
You can extrapolate for other use.

then 2-pass :

nice -19 mencoder $fichier -ovc lavc \
     -oac copy -o /dev/null -vf pp=lb,crop=$crop $temps

nice -19 mencoder $fichier -ovc lavc \
     -oac frameno -o film.avi -vf pp=lb,crop=$crop $temps
