That will be the biggest feature in the next release. I am working it out right now. I am a few steps away from creating batch processing. I will be sure to post the next beta with the batch feature to threads in this forum first.
Now, though, you can spawn as many mencoder sessions as you want from the program. Just start one, click out of the ensuing messages, and start a second encoding job. You will end up with a bunch of cmd windows open all working to encode your videos.
WARNING: I have a pretty beefy machine and I can't really get more than 5 to work without causing severe slowdowns. THUS - I officially do NOT recommend spawning more than 5 mencoder sessions from the program at once. But, even with that limitation it will take you 20% of the time it originally would have to encode all those seinfields...
If you want to be notified of "bleeding edge" releases (read: potentially unstable) just send me an email and I can let you know when I get something working.
