Question - Trial Version Crash No.70843
Servant  Mail /  )  2017-08-30 12:42:15 ( ID:0cc.476orpk )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I downloaded the trial version of the V6 software. I was testing using three Mp4 files converted from Edius. Two were an hour long each (high school plays) and the other an 8 minute clip. Total time 1:50:00. So I made a basic custom menu with three menu boxes for the three clips. I was in the middle of simulating the environment when the program crashed. And that is my question...is this not a stable program? I really don't want to plunk down $100 to find out the system isn't stable. I was hoping that if this authoring worked I could buy the program and finalize but sadly, when it crashed it took all three hours of work setting up the chapters and menus with it. Really disappointing. Even before it crashed I couldn't find a save button so I was hoping it was automatically saving as I went along but alas, no such luck. Lost it all. So, what is the deal with this?


tkrave  2017-09-14 13:21:43 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I've never had it crash on me personally, but obviously, that's not a guarantee since computers are different.

You can save the project by clicking on "Options" in the upper right corner and selecting to save the project. It does not automatically save, though that would be a nice feature to have.



Question - Blu ray add tracks, menu option goes away. No.70749
SmeltzerDeltzer  Mail /  )  2017-05-29 14:05:02 ( ID:zrvvx2po9jo )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello,
I've added a "first play" option along with 2 tracks. When I go to add "track 3" the "Menu" tab is greyed out and is no longer available to click on. As soon as I delete "track 3" the "menu" tab becomes available to click on once again. What gives? I've never had this issue at all in the past.



Question - Converting .MKV files with subtitles No.70700
Tazrulez  2017-05-02 01:23:25 ( ID:qu9dvsfvvjh )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have some .MKV files with subtitles, either .ssa or .ass subtitles, and it is not recognizing the subtitles. If I demux the subtitle and convert it to .srt it loses all formatting that the original had, and i have over 400 .mkv files. Is there a way I can keep the .ssa or .ass formatting and still import the .mkv files to TAW5?


Kuno  2017-05-07 16:08:05 ( ID:hukdtzb7abf )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

No there is not. If you want to keep the formatting I would strongly suggest using VSO ConvertXtoHD. They do have a trial available and it uses NVENC so your encodes will use NVENC hardware if you have a newer NVIDIA card. Your other option is to hardsub everything, through handbrake or mediacoder or another software package and then bring it in to author.

Subtitle support really blows.


Persen  2017-06-12 01:08:50 ( ID:6tr/46zxmom )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

For the future of others, then you can try to take a peak at Subtitle Edit.
It can extract and convert various types of subtitles, which also incl. DVB subtitles to various other subtitle formats.
Just remember to download the required language packs for both the decoder and encoder after having installed Subtitle Edit.

Question - Change Menu Requires Complete Re-render? No.70698
hurricane51  2017-04-29 16:36:44 ( ID:wvlp3krcken )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have a project with 5 HD video tracks. All I changed was the menu duration and deleted the Play All button. I made no chenges in source material at all. I assumed that it wouldn't require re-rendering on the complete project, but that's what happened.

My question is why? Surely the menu is kept separate from the rest of the content.

Now I'm looking at a 12-hour render, and that's with an i7-6700K cpu (4 Ghz).


tkrave  2017-05-19 13:23:40 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

When you output, it creates the entire project from scratch, so if your videos were fully rendered the first time, they will be fully rendered every time you want to output the project again.

What you could do, is create a new project and import the videos from your first output. Since they would be compliant, they should "smart render" and not take long to output. You'd also have to save your menu as a template, so you can load it much easier on your second project without having to recreate it.



Question - Audio DVDs - Possible with TAW5? No.70691
James Robinson  Mail /  )  2017-04-22 13:39:24 ( ID:0btjfo3fxuf )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello, Currently I use Apollo Audio DVD Creator, but it is somewhat limited. Can an audio DVD be created in TAW5? If so, Can someone outline the steps? I would need: album links on first page, then a page for each album, displaying song links, returning after each one played.

Thank you for any help.

tkrave  2017-05-19 13:28:20 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

It cannot produce DVD-Audio (DVD-A) formatted DVDs.

I suppose you could create a DVD-Video project with audio tracks and images, but you'd still need a DVD-Video player to play it.



Question - Number of chapters 16x9 vs 4x3 No.70690
James Robinson  Mail /  )  2017-04-22 13:34:43 ( ID:0btjfo3fxuf )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello, I have not been able to find an answer to this question and am looking for help, please.

When creating a menu, why is there only 16 chapters available for 16x9, while 4x3 gives you up to 32? It would seem that you have more screen area on a 16x9 screen. Also, are there any third party utilities that will let you edit TAW5 chapter screens? Any help is appreciated.

Thank you,

James


tkrave  2017-05-19 13:30:57 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I think it's a weird limitation of the DVD-Video specifications, if I remember correctly. I'm not sure what the reasoning is, but it's not a limitation made by Pegasys.

Don't know of any third party utilities.

Hello :)

Is it possible to animate a PopUp Menu like fading in/out by pressing the PopUp Menu Button?


tkrave  2017-04-12 14:08:46 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Unfortunately, no. Only the regular top/track pages can be faded in and out.

You may need to adjust the bounding box around your image.
TAW5 tends to make a larger bounding box than the actual image which can make resizing more difficult.

Select your image to see the bounding box and then adjust the height.
Once the height is adjusted, you should be able to increase the width to the full width of the screen.

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).

Thanks!


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.
