This is a very good introduction to using wxPython to create GUI applications in Python. Currently I've read about 70% of the book and found it quite easy to follow, the examples are quite concise, but still illustrate some powerful concepts (especially the grid table in Chapter 5 and the simple drawing application in chapter 6). Source code to the examples is available from the publisher's web site, but sometimes one learns more from actually typing in some of these that just downloading and running them. That's one of the beauties of Python, you can actually type in some stuff in the Python shell window and interactively experiment with things.

This may vary depending on your system configuration and video formats. Using an Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16 GHz based PC, AMD was able to achieve GPU accelerated transcoding speeds up to 19x faster using Cyberlink PowerDirector than when using the same CPU alone with MainConcept encoder in Adobe Premiere CS3. Using the same system, full 1080p files were converted 1.8x faster than real-time.The Cyberlink PowerDirector pages don't say anything about this.
