Do you recommend using x264vfw in VirtualDub?

If you have a special kind of video material, select a “Tuning” which matches that (usual grain: “film”; as heavy as in 300: “grain”; clean CG: “animation”; not certain: none) I will refuse to recommend any values for any other option. I do not even recommend using x264vfw at all. So what do you recommend?

How to improve video quality with H.264?

Suggestions for improving quality with H.264 settings When choosing a bitrate for your video, a good starting point is to set a variable bitrate equal to the pixel-width of the video. For example, the bitrate 640×480 SD would be 640 kbps, and 1280×720 HD would be set at 1280 kbps.

Are there any disadvantages to using VirtualDub?

The only drawback: With Virtualdub you are bound to the AVI container format, and to the standard audio codecs that are possible in AVI (we recommend MP3 with constant bit rate). Who wants to put his video in a MKV container can do that later with Avidemux.
