A feature that I have been wanting for awhile now is a feature to just 'Copy' the audio from the original video. Audio is normally so small, that re-encoding it is unnecessary. I believe it's better to just copy the original audio so that their isn't any quality loss when converting it. There are some codecs not supported by TMPGenc VMW 6 also, for example DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 channel.
is it possible to freeze frames for a period amount of time inside a single clip?
I have an audio-recording, which is a longer then the original video-clip. So i would like to freeze (stretch) certain parts inside the video-clip until the audio arrives at the specific marker and then continue with the regular video.
Is the audio a separate file from the video? If not, you'll have to demux them into separate files.
I would then use the timeline mode and put the audio on one layer and the video on another.
Then, you can use the clip editor to create a separate clip of the frame(s) you want to stretch.
Back in the timeline, you can then lengthen that clip to the appropriate time.
Thank you for your suggestion. I already tried that, but the effort for creating the exact frame is way to much when i have to do this around 50 times per video.
An easy way would be to just cut the video where you want to have the still-image and the stretch the cut clip to the right for the desired period of time. Unfortunately TMPGEnc continues with the original video-footage when doing that.
When I output a project to DVD, the program is only using 20% of my CPU (R7 1700, 8c/16t). I've tried enabling CUDA to see if that speeds things up, but it actually slows down the encode (only by a couple of minutes).
I used for many years TAW5 and, also if with some limitations (specially on menu side), I found it very useful for my purposes.
I would like to upgrade to TAW6 but I need a new feature: leave streams unchanged (in my case audio stream). Recently I was asked to produce a blu-ray with HD audio (for some concert recordings) but with TAW5 (or TAW6) this is impossible.
I know for sure audio stream is perfectly blu-ray compatible and I understand why TAW cannot decode these audio streams (royalties for DTS HD): but if TAW had the ability to leave streams unchanged (without any decoding)? Obviously at the risk of those who use this option
I cannot afford for this purpose to buy professional authoring suite: what do you think?
I have an MKV file with the properties below, which when I load it into TVMW6, I get "No Picture Available" in the Clip Editor and "No Video Data" in the Clip Properties. Yet, I can play this file fine using several different media applications such as VLC, Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic. The audio is seen as expected. Is there anything I can do to make this file's video to be seen by TVMW6? Thank you.

You might simply need to use a different file reader.
You can select a different file reader in the file explorer window that appears when importing your file. There is a drop down menu next to the filename text area. Just select one of the "Force Reader blah blah blah" options in the menu.
I tried submitted a technical support request but I get a message "The serial number is not correct" despite me copying and pasting the serial number directly from my email confirmation as well as the same one found in TVMW6. Seems they really don't want to provide support. Any suggestions?
I want to blacken a part of the picture over a range of about 400 frames. Whatever setting I've tried so far generates a black mask over the required range of frames but in the output video the mask moves a significant stretch from right to left at the beginning of the masking for about 5 seconds. This results in displaying partially some of the area i want to conceal. For the rest of the masking period the result is as expected.
Perhaps it is important to mention that I didn't have to double-click into the pre-view to display the mask shape. The contour of the mask appears automatically when "mask" ist selected in the filter list.
Any suggestions what I do wrongly? I'd be thankful for any hint.
Anyone here can please let me know or guide me on how to configure TAW6 to load the subtitle (.srt format) automatically with the video?
On TAW4 this was done automatically, as long as the SRT and the video had the exact same name, only extension different. In TAW6, in the clip addition windows, you have to always go to "subtitle edit", import the SRT, edit (which never saves the configuration BTW: font, color, size, position, etc.), and this is a horrible waste of time.
Any help, really appreciated.....
I have been receiving error messages in the TAW6 demo while editing ‘User Added Items’, both images and text:
“An error occurred while saving the data. Refer to the error content below:
This parameter is incorrect. (Error code 0x80070057)”
I haven’t noticed if the same ‘error code’ appears each time I’ve received it. But, it happens when using the ‘Move to front/back’ edit function (with both images and text), resizing images, moving images and text boxes.
I can't get passed this error unless I save the project, close the program and restart it; I can than edit the image or text that was producing the error, and continue working for a while...before it happens again.
It appears that, even though Pegasus support staff don’t respond on this forum, they DO respond to software problems noted here when updating their products. It’s obvious by their correcting issues I’ve mentioned on this forum. After all, they can’t successfully sell a buggy product, especially when they’ve created a forum specifically for customers to find support.
I just sent an email to technical support, but maybe I might be able to get assistance here more quickly.
We are discovering that the program seems to default to start automatically playing the first track of our DVDs after sitting at any menu for a few moments. Can't seem to figure out where to turn that feature OFF.
We need the DVDs to stay at whatever menu is on screen until the user opts to start playing the DVD. Is there a setting that we have yet to find to actually shut that autoplay feature OFF?
Wow. That sounds like a bug because I don't think there's a setting for that. It should stay on the menu.
There is an autostart feature but it will not display the menu at all; just play the track when you insert the disc.
When I edit a video, I have to do two things:
1) Select a segment & save it to a new file.
2) Then remove that selected segment from the overall video, which also has to be saved to a new file.
I'm used to the simple SolveigMM interface. You mark a segment. Right click and save it. Then right click and delete it from the timeline. Press one button to save new video (with segment removed).
But in TMPGEnc Smart Renderer, it is so complicated. After I mark a segment, I see no option to quickly save the clip. There are so many confusing buttons. I tried reading the help manual...but it doesn't make sense to me.
Can someone please tell me some steps to accomplish the two things I need to do?
So you want to save both the part your are editing out and the resulting video with the edit?
You can't do it the way SolveigMM does it, mostly because TMSR5 does not use a timeline for editing.
In the clip editor window, you should select the segment you want to edit by using the split clip button to mark the beginning and end of the area you want to cut. The split clip button looks like this: <-|-> (a left arrow, a dividing line, and a right arrow). Once done, you should have blue and orange-marked segments.
Then click on OK. A window will appear asking which segments to keep; you'll want to keep both the blue and orange segments in your case.
You'll be back in the clip list window and you should have 3 clips (if you only want to remove one section). You should save the project now as a base project to create the two resulting videos you want.
After saving, delete the segment you want removed, then you can save and output that as your first file. There is an output option to merge all the clips into one video to create your edited overall video.
Reload your base project file and delete the other segments so you only have the section you want to edit out. Then save and output that.
Hope that makes sense. It sounds complicated, but it's not bad once you get used to it. It's just a different way of editing.
