Why don't you just download Huffyuv and install it directly??

dude, those tutorials are quite outdated, especially for xvid.. i really dont have any idea of encoding xvid properly :(( cause when im trying to render it in virtualdub with 2pass, the bitrate bar isnt available wtf? cant someone make a NEW PROPER tutorial for n00bs with MANY pictures regarding xvid? When we request help we always recieve that old stupid shaolin encoding thinggy :(

Have you ever heard the word "testing"?

That's the problem. You call something stupid because you don't get a couple of screenshots from which you can just copy the settings. You don't want to learn, you want to be guided. Unfortunately that's not how compressing video works. If you don't understand that you're a lost cause. Even if that seems to hurt your feelings, read the shao guide again, it'll be 100 times more efficient for you than a random guide that instructs you to increase your bitrate to 8000 kbit/s because you'd get teh turbosexej quality that way... well yeah, and an oversized examplery piece of modern compression misery.

jeez man, ive tested that guied several times, but WHEN I CHOOSE TO ENCODE WITH 2PASS THE BITRATE BAR ISNT AVAILABLE..how can i encode with 2pass when my bitrate bar isnt available.. i can get preety good quality with simple pass too, but ive heard that 2pass is way better.. ive read that guide many times :/

i thougt that style forums would help me with my problem, but no..you are all sarcastic, making people "lost causes" instead of helping them.. u dont even know my editing skills.. and u insulte me.. i made many movies in my life, but never tried mp4 ori avi.. just wmv, cause it seemed more effiecient at that time... but now i want to try xvid and i encountered this problem

I insulted you? Didn't realize that. And do you even know what "lost cause" means? And where did I mention a single word about your editing skills? And would I insult you if you're editing skills were kinda low? (Ye I guess I would, you got me.)

Stop complaining that "the Style forums" don't help you. There's a reason for that, and the reason is that there's already a shitload of guides and tutorials out there which explain the basics way better than anyone in here could.

As for you're particular problem, either you have an extremely outdated XviD version (one of nic's old builds)... or you're just not realizing that the "target size" bar changes to "target bitrate" if you click on the label to the left.

Well, that's because the first pass is for analyzing purposes only unless you specify else in the first pass settings (which is pretty pointless). The encoder only interprets the footage, saves the log in a seperate file and loads the data from that file during the second pass encode. That's the reason. Long story short: you only have to specify a bitrate in the actual encoding pass, which is the second one.

Well, OK. Let's start with the beginning. I finish the movie, aight? I render it .avi uncompressed from Vegas. I open the uncompressed .avi with VirtualDub. This is where the fun starts. I choose from Video tab - > Compression -> XviD. What pass should I use now to re`render it? 1pass? I'm missing the point here.

Depends on your footage. Low contrast, fast cuts, unpredictable movement within the footage, all things that make it harder for the encoder to work properly. You just have to test things out.
