Using the Video Bit Rate
The video bit rates you calculate can be used as the bit rate entry of your encoder,
regardless of the encoding method you intend to use (one pass, one-pass variable bit
rate [VBR], or two-pass VBR).
When using one of the VBR encoding methods in the integrated MPEG encoder, the “Bit
rate” setting affects the amount of disc space that the MPEG video file requires, while the
“Max bit rate” setting sets the highest video bit rate that is allowed in the file (but does
not affect the file size). See
MPEG Encoding Methods
for more information.
