mainconcept encoder

Okay, I'm totally new to encoding and I have the mainconcept encoder and I need to encode an hour and 44 minute avi to fit onto a DVD. I want it to be as good as possible. Any tips? I hate to just use the beginner stuff and be limited to that quality. I need a crash course, so to speak. At least just the stuff I need to know for this.

Also, if anyone is familiar with about how high a bitrate can still fit an hour and 44 minute film onto DVD that would save a LOT of trial and error on my part!

Thanks guys!!!

There is bit rate calculator here, which says your answer is 5.5Mbps. For the best quality you need to use two-pass VBR.
