I seriously doubt it, but that's no reason not to buy Procoder. It has an excellent MPEG-2 encoder and it can read AviSynth script files -- so you can use it very nicely in conjunction with my workflow.

Quality is a subjective term. So, buy ProCoder if you want and see how it goes.
I have PC 3 and have found it to work nicely with Dan's workflow. Once you get a basic script file setup, it is really not that complicated -- but I certainly can relate to how it appears at the surface.
Once you try Dan's workflow, you will be glad you did! The results are very nice.
Not to hijack the thread...but the problem I have now is that I cannot use Dan's workflow in CS4 -- AND I no longer have access to the debug frameserver plugin in CS3 after installing cs4 on same machine. I saw a similar post and am eagerly awaiting to hear if Dan has any suggestions??

Sorry... I don't know about that one. Very strange.

You can't use DebugMode, but if you export some HD intermediary from CS4 you can run that through the script.
If you have the Cineform or Matrox HD codecs, you can try exporting with that. You can also try exporting as Lagarith @ 1440x1080i.
Another alternative that I'm forumating uses MPEG-2 4:2:2 I-frame exported from AME. See this thread. (NOTE: This is for PAL I/O... adjust settings as necessary for NTSC).
