Lame 3.99.5 Command-Line Options For Foobar2000 Trancoding?, [moved from MP3 - Tech as not a tech issue and more relevant to fb2k]

I've been looking for a solution to create both FLAC and Mp3 files with complete ID3 tags from a single rip. After looking into several other solutions, I decided that my best option would probably be to use EAC to rip to FLAC, and then Foobar2000 to transcode to Mp3.

I want to use Lame 3.99.5 with the following options:
-V 0 --vbr-new --add-id3v2 --pad-id3v2 --ta "%artist%" --tt "%title%" --tl "%albumtitle%" --tg "%genre%" --ty "%year%" --tn "%tracknr%" --tc "%comment%" %source% %dest%

^ When I attempt to paste the above line into Foobar2000 for transcoding, I get an error. I assume this is because it is tailored for EAC. Can anyone help me convert those options to something that Foobar2000 can understand?

And, as a more general answer, you don't need any of the tag options in any of your encoder command lines, foobar2000 will copy over the relevant metadata (minus album art) automatically.

It's only audiophile if it's inconvenient.
