I was looking for a link to an MPEG2 overview, but can't seem to find one quickly, so I'll try to give you a brief and way overly simplified explination.For a newbie, would you please explain the difference between "GOP accurate" editing and "Frame accurate" editing and when you would use one over the other?
For most people, FA mode is best. Its more accurate, therefore your cuts will appear exactly where you want them. However, to create frame accurate cuts without re-encoding your entire file, VideoReDo has to create shortened GOPs at the cut points. Some programs might not like the shortened GOPs even though they are MPEG2 compliant. If you come across such a program, then switch to GOP mode.When to use GOP or FA mode?
