I apologize I am lousy in explaining sometimes…
One person told me that it is better to cut chapters in separate tracks because of navigation and behavior of the chapters. Everything is fine in menu construction when I have one movie.. I have top page and then a page with chapters (that are mini movies in separate tracks). But what to do when I have several movies that all have chapters (that I want to cut and divide in separate tracks)? Is there a way to put new pages and link what track I want to have in what menu pages? I want a list of movies in the first page and then when certain movie is selected to get me to the page with chapters.
What's the reasoning behind putting each chapter into its own track? Doesn't that just list all of your chapters in the Top menu? I guess that's useful if you want to turn the Top menu into a chapter menu.
Anyway ignore that, and just put each movie in its own track.
That way, the Top menu will list all of your movies, and when you select one, it will go to that movie's chapter menu (track menu = chapter menu).
I am making dvd with recorded classes for drawing anatomy.
What I need is that when a selected chapter has finished playing to get me back to the chapter menu so that the viewer can choose what other chapters he want to see. Right now it continues to play the unselected chapters as well and then after the entire track has finished playing it get back to the chapter menu. I have several tracks (of recorded lectures). Each track has many chapters (skeleton system of the hand, muscle system of the hand etc.) I really want to avoid making all those chapters in to separate mini movies (tracks)if possible. I have the trial version and just would like to know is this software for me or not.
Thank you in advance
This is possible in TMPGEnc Authoring Works 5 (can't remember if it's possible in TAW4). TAW4 is discontinued, so if you do decide to buy it, you'll have to buy version 5 anyway.
You can set the chapter end action in the Menu Stage-->Global Menu Settings-->Chapter Display tab.
For each chapter, you can select whether to play the next chapter or go back to the menu.
Note that this option will only appear for DVDs; Blu-rays don't have this functionality I guess.
After I installed the latest TMPGEnc Authoring Works 4.0 build 188.8.131.52 my antivirus SW WebRoot identified two Trojan Horses among the AW files! It reports that two files are infected with W32.Trojan.Gen virus. Those files are: effcaaudiofilter.vme and moviempeg.vme.
When I authorized WebRoot to clean these files, AW 4.0 stopped working with a message "required files are missing to boot"...
Anyone else with the same problem? Fixes?
I wrote a ticket to TMPGEnc 2015/01/09 (Fri) 07:29:14 (JST) but never received any input from them.
My PC recently died.I removed the hard drive and transferred the contents(including Authoring Works 4)to the new PC.
So now that I have done that,how do I access Authoring Works?
I created a short cut,but when I click on it,I am asked for some kind of code or key or serial number,which I no longer have,as I purchased it over 5 years a go.
Did you make a user account at the tmpgenc website? You can log in and get your license serial number there.
If you haven't done that (and you really should have, especially if you ever downloaded a software update), then you might have to contact customer support via this form: https://ssl.pegasys-inc.com/webapp/inquiry/serial?lang=en

Just a question. Moving up from XP to Win7, my old DVD Author 1.6 isn't working much any more (been a champ for years), so I'm looking at TAW 4. Took a couple of my old .tda projects to a friend's house to try his copy, and his TAW 4 wouldn't open them ("this isn't a TAW 4 project" or the like).
I've got a ton of templates that I use for DVD authoring, and given TAW's weird UI I'd be hesitant about having to re-create them all. Is there any way to persuade TAW 4 to open my original 1.6 .tda files?
Hello! I have 2 important questions, in this days try this product, is good but
There are options for BD authoring without recoding and it does directly 1:1?
I have created: intro+movie+trailer, after authoring this becomes a single file!
normally in the any BD structure are separated this 3 videos.
there is an option that allows me to have them all and 3 separated?
Was working fine for me for quite a while, now I get this error. Uninstalling/cleaning/re-installing does not help. Error can occur anytime during the process, but usually between 20%-30%. I have confirmed that the video files conform to MPEG/DVD specs. Any help would be appreciated.
In the menu editor, there are buttons at the bottom right corner of the screen that activate various views. One of them allows you to see the active area around buttons. Buttons that are too close or overlapping another button will be highlighted red.
I have 2 pages with track in my dvd.
Everything works perfect only 3 track won't.
This is i think because they are called USER ADDED ITEM instead of Thumbnail of Chapter or Name of Chapter.
How can i get them also working?
If you manually added a thumbnail to the menu, it won't do anything because there is no way to link it to a chapter/track.
If you have 3 tracks, it should automatically generate a thumbnail for that track and then you can edit it as you wish.
I have a Samsung HMX-Q10 camcorder which records HD video in H.264/MP4 format. While attempting to put together a DVD of my videos in TMPGEnc Authoring Works 4, I try to edit each video clip, but the preview playback only plays the first half second or so normally, and then it stops moving completely. The audio continues to play. It seems the program chokes on it. I can play the videos smoothly through Windows Media Player. I also have the latest version of Quicktime installed on my computer. I have the "low resolution" option checked, but the help says that may not work with certain video formats. It seems to make no difference, so I assume the H.264 is one of those exceptions.
I am running an AMD A4-4000 Richland 3.2GHz Dual-Core CPU, with 4GB of DDR3 1333 RAM. My main hard drive is a 1TB, 7200RPM w/64MB cache, SATA, 6GB/sec Western Digital. The videos reside on a secondary SATA drive.
Does anyone have suggestions on how to get the preview video to play back smoothly? I upgraded my computer JUST for the purpose of editing my HD home movies, so it is quite a bummer to find it still not working. Would upgrading to version 5 work? Or should I install a specific codec to decode the H.265 video faster? Would moving the video to the main hard drive be better? Thank you!
