I have a viktor mpeg card on the way. And i was wondering what would be the easiest way to create Saturn Video and Photo Cd's?

tmpgenc for windows. I think nero 6 burning rom too.

Xvcd profile @ 352x240 variable bitrate will work just try to stay about 2050-2300 kbps for video, about 256kbps audio and write cdr @ slow speed.

Nero definitely won't make compatible ones, unless there's some option I missed.
I heard good thing about TMPEGEnc though. I would not use variable bitrate since that was more of a SVCD thing, and the Saturn cards only support plain old VCD.

so 704 x 480 will not work?

No, that's out of spec for standard VCD.

TMPENGEnc works well enough, I've used it a few times. And as zyrobs stated variable bit rate isn't really in the standard VCD format, you should stick to constant bit rate.

VCD standard is 352x240 for NTSC.

Thanks for all the quick replies. Will try it with TMPENGEnc then.
