Question - Audio Track Selection Doesn't Appear No.70627
hurricane51  2017-02-24 12:44:52 ( ID:bmcajo/ppzg )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have several tracks with multiple audio tracks in each one. My global settings are set display the button to select the audio track, but without success.

The 3 audio tracks appear in the source page for each video.

Is there something simple I am missing?

tkrave  2017-03-22 13:38:13 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Does your menu have separate track menu pages, or is it top menu only? I believe the audio/subtitle buttons only appear on the track and popup menu pages.

Is it possible to convert Blu-ray project to DVD project ?

Blizzard  2017-02-13 02:02:22 ( ID:0qutv2teqd. )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Have you clicked "Open with Conversion" on the main page ? Then you just open the BD project and change to to DVD with the drop down menu.

Question - How to add long audio track to bluray overlapping all videos No.70610
Chris Lomont  2017-02-11 12:53:13 ( ID:0ooijz/wzt. )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have created a Blu-ray from many old home movies, in 20+ chapters. They are silent. I want to add a single long playing audio track to play along with the whole thing, but cannot figure out how to do it. If I add the audio to the first chapter, TMPGEnc TAW5 simply resizes the first clip to as long as the audio.

Is there a way to do this? I do not want to hand split the audio into 20+ pieces and add one at a time to tracks (plus that would likely have audio gaps).


Blizzard  2017-02-12 05:28:17 ( ID:0qutv2teqd. )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hi. Not sure if I can help but I will try. First can you clarify, do you mean you have 1 long file within 1 track that is chapter marked 20 times, or do you mean you have 20 different files within 1 track (thus making every clip a chapter) ?

Chris Lomont  2017-02-12 05:57:55 ( ID:0ooijz/wzt. )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have 20 video clips, set as 20 chapters. I want to take a long list of songs, merge them into one audio, and have them play while the 20 video clips play.

Cutting the audio into 20 sections would be a pain, and I suspect would be hard to get to sync nicely at the boundaries.

Blizzard  2017-02-12 10:46:32 ( ID:0qutv2teqd. )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Have you thought of authoring the disc first without your music track (no need to do a menu at this stage) and then because it will join up all video clips in to 1 big file (output to blu-ray folder), you could then import that in to a new project, then chapter mark each video, this will then show your video as one long clip but still with it chaptered in to 20 different points. Because it is now one long file you can add a long music track to it.

Just an idea.

Alexander  Mail /  )  2017-01-04 22:57:43 ( ID:wmjblqslemn )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello to you all Pegasys guys!
Who can tell me the right specifications for BD-MV source video files?
Because of I produce BDMV file from Sony VideoStudio but AW5 tells me that it needs to reconvert it (no smart render, red sign)!..

Persen  Mail /  )  2017-02-09 23:03:58 ( ID:6tr/46zxmom )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Creating the videos as M2TS files with H.264 MPEG-4 AVC codec, might get you a step closer to smart rendering in TAW5.
That is the standard used for Blu-ray.

Question - Why STILL no DTS? No.70519
KevMull  2016-11-08 05:42:55 ( ID:zqkpo9x8l/m )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

STILL there is NO DTS/DTS HD or Dolby True HD support....WHY????

DD5.1 640kbps went out with DVD.

Time to get with the times Pegasys your products are looking dated

Persen  Mail /  )  2016-11-14 21:55:03 ( ID:6tr/46zxmom )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Because if they had the support for DTS and HD audio, then you would have to pay up to 5 times as much for the Pegasys software.
Why do you think that all the other editor and authoring software who do have the support is so darn expensive?

Besides, their software was not created for some one like you to be working with all the illegally downloaded Blu-ray rips of yours. It is mainly focused on working with home videos that people filmed using their own video cameras, where the typical audio in those are standard Dolby Digital 2.0 or 5.1

If you don't like it, feel free to pay the $500 to $2000 for the software to get your precious DTS and HD audio support. No one is forcing you stick with the software from Pegasys.

is there a pdf manual for tmpgenc authoring works 5, there are so many things that i dont know about it and all i am doing is asking support all the time to help me, a manual would be good, just lookup the index and goto the page of what you need and read a full description and follow the instructions would be great. I have had to purchase pinnacle 20 ultimate as they have a manual and it is step by step

Question - What happened to support No.70510
Lloyd61  Mail /  )  2016-11-03 16:42:49 ( ID:ybv5gfxz2rj )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Over a month ago I started having issues with the CUDA aspect with regards to this software and another two TMPGEnc software packages. Initially they were very responsive and had several suggestions which I tried, in the end they had me delete a couple of files from each software package directories and this has essentially permanently disables the CUDA part.

Since then I have heard nothing more and they no longer respond to further requests in this matter.

Are they admitting defeat in that their software is buggy and by ignoring the issue it doesn't exist?

Given the money I have invested in this company over the years, this is very poor and makes me think twice on further support. Why should I support them if they turn their backs on me.

Persen  Mail /  )  2016-11-14 22:19:09 ( ID:6tr/46zxmom )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I don't know about your issues, but i have no problems with CUDA in TAW5 or TVMW5
The NVIDIA driver i use is 353.30 for my Asus GeForce GTX650-E-2GD5, where the CUDA was recognized immediately after updating to that driver version.
Have Windows 7 64 bit by the way, never wasted my time on 8, 8.1 or 10

Lloyd61  2016-11-26 16:16:53 ( ID:ybv5gfxz2rj )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have updated the NVIDIA drivers several times now, but have not tried reinstalling each piece of software to see if it has been rectified.

The main issue is that support have hung me out to dry, don't even have the decency to say they have no idea, they now ignore any request from me for support on this matter.

I see that my comment here don't even invoke a response. thanks for your money, now shutup.

Lloyd61  2016-11-27 15:32:54 ( ID:ybv5gfxz2rj )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

As an update to this issue, I completely removed the offending applications and reinstalled them, the problem seems to have been resolved.

Thanks Support................not

I guess they will take this as a request.

Question - Where are the error logs? No.70450
amby  2016-09-06 11:51:11 ( ID:j8majifa/ta )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I'm trying to output a Blu-Ray with menus to a hard disk folder using the batch processor, but after a few hours I get an extremely useless error message saying: "The output stopped on an error".

That's ALL!

I've searched all over, but I can't find any TAW5 error logs (or any other log files) anywhere on my 64-bit Windows 7 Pro system. How am I supposed to know what to do? Does anyone know where I can find the log file or any other way to discover what went wrong?

Before I even began, I confirmed all codecs and codec settings were correct, ran several test tools, and confirmed that I have far more than enough room in the output hard drive. So how can I find out what's the problem?


tkrave  2016-09-15 02:26:07 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Have you contacted support? They may have better insight to what the problem could be.

Ades  2016-09-15 14:43:21 ( ID:nrp09m2aqdn )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]


I think this error comes up if there was really not enough memory for the
application. Windows 32 Bit Operation System can control at least 3GB
memory but there is a limit, one application can use at least 2GB
Memory problem happens most by AVCHD but it can be used very much
too by HD movies. (almost by creating menu thumbnails).

How about if you try to create a BD without menus? just for checking.
Do you have a slide show clip? If yes try to output without
that clip. (a lot of memory will be used by picture resizing).

Looks like the only way to handle this is by reducing your clips.
Or try also to create menus without motion, or effects.

Also try to disable following multithread settings at
Options > Preferences > CPU >
"Use multithread for filtering" and Options > Preferences > MPEG settings >
disable all options that use multithread function.

Question - Subtitle Editing No.70424
Tom Lewandowski  Mail / Home )  2016-08-14 19:00:00 ( ID:.t38jdbdulr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

There are a lot of limitations with TAW5 in terms of copy and paste (which doesn't exist at all), preference settings, subtitle editing, etc. For instance, you can spend a lot of time creating a custom chapter menu in TAW5 -- the program contains lots of tools for being creative; but there's no option that will allow you to copy the entire layout, including every user item placed on the page, and paste the identical page, elsewhere.This seems like a very basic and standard ability every authoring software would have.

What bugs the crap out of me is Subtitle Editing. I always use TOP and BOTTOM subtitle positions for videos (like TV shows) that display credits during the beginning of the video, usually at the bottom. I have to manually select each subtitle line, click a menu, and click to select each line's menu position. Does anyone know if there's a key combination (like SHIFT+CURSOR) that allows you to select multiple lines to apply the position setting to a selected group of lines? The HELP file is very limited in describing subtitle options and nothing I've tried allows me to select more than one text line at a time, to apply a subtitle layout option.

As far as I can tell, you're limited to editing one subtitle text line at a time -- you can't apply an option to multiple lines at once. Maybe I haven't found the option to do this?
