Question - SW for Authoring DivX Ultra No.67883
enrique  Mail /  )  2013-08-04 08:04:56 ( ID:dkstajiegwl )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello,
I'm looking for a SW for Authoring DivX Ultra files.
The product TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring and the product TMPGEnc Author Works 4 are EOLEed by Pegasys and the new version of TMPGEnc Author Works 5 doesn't support DivX Ultra.
I am actually using the trial of the DivX Author v.1.5 that I've downloaded from the DivX site but it is not ass good as the two previously mentioned.
Furthermore it hungs sometimes when Authoring a high quantity of films in a single DivX file which is my case because I'm using DivX compression because I want to fit many low quality films in a single DVD.
Is there any way to purchse either the TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring or the TMPGEnc Author Works 4 or is there another good product for Authoring DivX Ultra ?
Thanks in advance.
Enrique.

Hello Fellows:
I have some problems using "labels" in my subtitles [<i>...</i>] or [<b>...</b>]. The final result shows these characters instead italian or bold.
¿Can you tell me how can I avoid this?
Thank you very much.

Unfortunately, those tags aren't supported, so it's best to delete them before you import it into TAW3.



Question - Rendered output audio is just a loud buzz No.65532
crcketdave  Mail /  )  2011-12-20 21:26:14 ( ID:elhzt9mhtb2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I created a DVD using captured HD input. The output format was MPEG-2 Video, 720x480, 16:9, Dolby Digital audio stream.

When I put the DVD in a player the audio was only a loud buzz, no other sound can be heard. The audio/video in the output folder on my computer is the same.

I recently installed the software on my new Windows 7 computer. This exact same process used to work on my Windows XP machine. Am I missing a codec or something?


tkrave  2011-12-22 03:11:58 ( ID:esk4fdefcg2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

What type of video/audio is your source file? You can use a program like MediaInfo to get the codec details.



Question - GOP problem No.65492
Albatora  Mail /  )  2011-12-04 05:20:44 ( ID:.podhrnqm/a )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hi,
I get an error message every time I try to run a simulation for a given video project : "The GOP is too long"
There's no way I can modify it in TMPGenc, so how can I change this?

Thanks for your help.


tkrave  2011-12-07 06:02:41 ( ID:esk4fdefcg2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

There are a few possibilities.

One, it could be a false positive and you can ignore the error. If you know for a fact that the GOP is correct, then you can ignore it. The ultimate test will be when you play the outputted files through a DVD player (you can test it on your computer if you have DVD playing software).

Two, it could be that the GOP is actually wrong and you'll have to re-encode your source files. There needs to be a certain GOP length for NTSC and PAL DVD-Video. See this thread at videohelp.com for info:

Question - why i can't use my .mp4 files? No.65206
Zephyrot55  Mail /  )  2011-09-17 10:27:59 ( ID:aflwb6lnzn2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I want to create some dvd from movies i downloaded, but i can't use the .mp4 ones. I just get to see a black scrren in the cut-edit window and in the simulation part. Can someone help me solve this?


tkrave  2011-09-20 06:58:03 ( ID:esk4fdefcg2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

You might need to update QuickTime or download a codec. If you can, use a program like MediaInfo or GSpot to analyze the file. Post the finding here or search for a codec that can decode the video.



Question - Just where is widescreen 16:9 choice made ? No.64356
BOBC  Mail /  )  2011-02-26 08:09:56 ( ID:cysi6gv.8ih )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hi,
Starting a new project we just have pal dvd choice, no choice of 4:3 or widescreen. So if we want to put 4:3 footage into a widescreen format, or have widescreen recording and wish to make widescreen dvd, how is that done ? I have a custom video size and reckon widescreen may be better, as choosing PAL dvd sees it shrunk smaller than required and its unreadable.

Question - "The writing drive is stopped" No.64162
homyakchik  2011-01-30 05:03:47 ( ID:69wb5ju4bvg )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I've been using DVD Author 1.6, which was great until the disk writing tool stopped recognizing my DVD drive (no idea why; one day it did, the next it didn't). I can start DVD Author 3, and even author a disk (however painful the process now is) in it. If I click on the "Launch the Disk Writing Tool" button, I get a popup error stating "The writing drive is stopped." Which doesn't mean much, as I _have_ been writing to disk in past days, just not with Tsunami software.

If I go through the entire disk authoring process (at least now I can do dual-audio and subtitles! Yay for something) and it gets set to launch the disk writing tool, the same thing happens. A reinstall didn't solve anything. A search of the forums here netted me nothing.

Anyone got any idea what might be causing this? Given that the disk works for everything else I'm thinking the problem lies with DVDA3, but I'm not sure.

Thanks

Dj

>I found the fix of the problem:
Go to administrative tools, then go to services, in services go to B's Recorder Gold Library General, in there right click and click start. When started this will fix the problem
I hope this help you.



Question - Firstplay action No.64046
Royand  2011-01-11 05:45:59 ( ID:elbyuakphkw )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I use DVD Author 3 on Windows 7 64 bit. When authoring and burning the firstplay action should be to show the main menu (autostart. However when inserted in a standalone DVD player nothing happens - until you push the "play" button, then the menu shows (and the DVD plays as it should). Would be incredibly grateful for a solution! Would upgrading to DVD Author 4 help? I'd be happy to, if I only knew that it would solve the problem!



Question - Where do the subtitles go saved? No.63828
Sylver Cheetah 53  Mail / Home )  2010-11-12 11:26:50 ( ID:x.vgl3k7ka2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello!

I have a problem with TMPGEnc DVD Author. I've created a subtitle within the program, but it's not save. The video comes as a .divx file. So probably the subtitle should be saved in the same folder...
What's the thing? Where do the subtitle go saved?

Thank you.


tkrave  2010-11-16 11:40:55 ( ID:rtaw9vhji5c )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

When you output the project, the subtitles are contained in the .divx container, so it's not a separate file.

If you go the subtitle editor, you can export the subtitles as a file.

It doesn't works...why?


tkrave  2010-10-28 02:21:40 ( ID:rtaw9vhji5c )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

The product was discontinued before Windows 7 was released. If you can run it in XP compatibility mode, it might work.


Royand  2011-02-08 15:25:31 ( ID:elbyuakphkw )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

It works for me (DVD Author 3 + Windows 7 64 Bit). However I have the problems mentioned in my own above question!

Question - Error "Could not initialize QuickTime (-9461)." No.63737
ksomers  Mail /  )  2010-10-16 23:49:57 ( ID:edzzpa0wkpo )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have been using DVD Author 3 for a few years with no problems. My sister-in-law gave me MPEG-4 clips of her vacation which are HD. I wanted to put the clips together, add subtitles, and burn them to a DVD that can be viewed in a regular DVD player. Everything goes the same as usual until I start the output. About an hour into the output, which it says is 17% done, the process stops and I get the error message:
>Could not initialize QuickTime (-9461).
Thinking that the problem was with QuickTime, I installed the newest version, but that did not solve the problem.
Is there some setting that needs to be changed when working with HD videos? Does DVD Author 3 work with HD MPEG-4 clips?


tkrave  2010-10-20 09:25:07 ( ID:rtaw9vhji5c )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

When you import the file, what file reader is being used?

You can see the file reader in the Clip Properties window that appears right after you import the file.

(this screenshot is from Authoring Works 4, but it's pretty much the same in DVD Author 3).

When I import a MPEG-4, the DirectShow file reader is the one that is being used.


ksomers  Mail /  )  2010-10-21 05:18:29 ( ID:edzzpa0wkpo )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

QuickTime file reader was used.

Thank you for the screenshot. That helped me locate the information.


tkrave  2010-10-22 02:59:17 ( ID:rtaw9vhji5c )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

There's a couple of things you can try.

1) Open QuickTime Player (Windows Start menu-->QuickTime-->QuickTime Player). Then open the preferences (Edit-->Preferences-->QuickTime Preferences). In the QuickTime Preferences window go to the Advanced tab and make sure the box is checked for "Enable encoding using legacy codecs". If it's already checked, or if this doesn't fix the error you're getting, try option 2:

2) Disable the QuickTime file reader.
In DVD Author 3, go to the Preferences (Options-->Preferences), then go to the File Input plug-in section (Input format list-->File input plug-in). You should see a list of the file readers. Uncheck the QuickTime file reader and click the OK button to confirm your settings.
This should force your MPEG-4 file to be read by a different file reader, most likely the DirectShow file reader. Try and import your file. If you get an error that the video or audio part can't be opened, then you'll need to install some codecs. ffdshow will probably do the trick, and you might need Haali Media Splitter if you don't have that either.

Thank you very much, tkrave. Option 2 worked.

I really appreciate your help in getting my DVD Author 3 to work with the MPEG-4 files. We ended up with a nice DVD.
