I have a question, maybe a stupid one, but I am trying to use TMPGE 4 ex to convert this type of file ... E56.091201.HDTV.H264.450p-Angel.avi to a DVD standard, for i do not have blueray disc player. These files will play on my computer, but 4 express just hangs up, forever if I let it. Is this conversion not possible? I am running Win XP SP2 , on an AMD Atholon 2800 2.08 Ghz, and 2 GB ram. I know its old , any help or suggestions would be appreciated
It happens to me as well. It is definitely caused by the new nVidia drivers. I've logged a bug report with the Technical Support. It's a bit odd that this new version they released yesterday didn't fix it yet. I was hoping it would.
even if i was from tmpgenc i can assure you that attitude and demanding them to sort it out, gets cusotmers naff all.
and from my experince with my clients and friends, those runtime errors happen when a kegen is used and is not a current one, when this is done and the user goes to open the software the message comes up, and at times the licence details come up.
how ever I am not in anyway statign this is the same case for you.
Ok, people, I've got a response from Pegasys by saying that their current TMPGEnc Xpress application is not compatible with the newest release of nVidia drivers (i.e. 195), because nVidia introduced a new version of CUDA (i.e. 3.0). People have only two options. They can either downgrade to the 191 version of nVidia drivers if they use CUDA capability or disable UtilsCUDA file in TMPGCEnc Xpress folder by renaming it.
I'm surprised though how Pegasys is so slow in updating their SW to follow CUDA evolution. nVidia announced the new version and released the development tools for a long time (at least since the middle of last year) and Pegasys didn't bother to update their SW to match it. Very sloppy, I must say.
I've been using TMPGEnc XPress 4 for a while and the other day I noticed it was not working corretly. It loads up, verifies user and licenses, and then says initializing and hangs there forever. I have uninstalled, and reinstalled and samething. I tried using a eariler version and it runs, but I get runtime errors and other odd errors. My Vista system is update with all software updates and virus free. I'm at a lost to what could be causing it. Is there not a log that Xpress generates that might give me some clue?
Why an AVI-DV video captured directly from DV tape the WMV encoding the audio is perfectly in sync!
And a DV-AVI video render from Adobe Premiere CS4 the WMV encoding the audio is out of sync?
I use 64bit and the W7 TMPGEnc Xpress 18.104.22.1682!
I solved the problem of audio sync with windows media encoding (wmv) with TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress Version 22.214.171.1242 on Windows 7 64-bit, I uninstalled it and installed the TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress Version 126.96.36.1994, the problem of sync audio resolved.
I recently upgraded my computer to 64 Bit Win7 with a GTX260 video card. Since the upgrade I have not been able to get any Cuda encoding to function. I have tried uninstalling, reinstalling, different codecs, reinitializing, latest NVidia Drivers...nothing work. I have tested my machine with LoiLoScope and Cuda works, but it does not work in TmPG Express. Another side note is that Divx crashes the application (versions 5,6,and7).
Does anyone have any suggestions...I am truly bummed since I bought the machine for video editing.
I have included the event log entry for the Divx crash below.
I am also getting this error. I also used all previous versions with no issue but reinstalled Windows 7 a couple of months ago. I installed the latest 188.8.131.522 and I'm also seeing the error. It's a problem with TMPGEnc Xpress, not our hardware and I haven't had any other programs crash on this machine, ever.
I uninstalled TMPGEnc, deleted the "\Documents and Settings\(user name)\My documents\TMPGEnc\TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress" folder and then uninstalled Quicktime at the request of a TMPGEnc Support Engineer. I then reinstalled the latest TMPGEnc 4.0 (4.7.292) and it opened successfully. I haven't tried to reinstall Quicktime and frankly, don't need it yet so I'm not sure if reinstalling it will bring the error back. Hope this helps.
I am wondering what is the best way to have all conversion using 4.0 XPress to MPEG (DVD 4.7 WIDE Standard)so when I import the video to Authoring Works 4 it would NOT recode the file , meaning lossing quality.
Basic , i don´t want to loose quality recoding twice. Whats the best way to impor the videos for Author Works 4 so the video complain with all specs for Standard DVD.
i do this too for DVD and bluray, this way i know the files will be complient. If you are making a DVD use the 'DVD standard mpeg file' set your settings appropriate to your video and have the video bitrate 9200 kb/s (max video bitrate tmpgenc4 express offers) and you will be fine and authoring works wonr re-encode the file.
Yes i did that, but i have a feeling that is recoding again. There is a option on Authr.Works on GENERAL -> Genereal Track Settings -> DO NOT ADJUST THIS TRACK SIZE. There is not much info ont he help, but i believe is the one to turn OFF the recode of Mpeg Files. What do you think?
I use DVD standard MPEG file, the only difference i set a bitrate of 4500 VBR, because i need to include at least 1 hour and 30 min of video on a DVD5.
In Authoring Works 4, does the clip have the Full Rendering icon (red FR) or the Smart Rendering icon (blue SR) in the Source stage? If it's marked as Smart Rendering then you don't need to worry.
What makes you think it's re-encoding anyway?
I've been encoding a few MKV files to WMV-HD with Xpress, and 90% of the time they encode perfectly. However, every so often I come across the odd MKV file that encodes fine, but the last 20 minutes or so of the movie (sometimes longer) begins stuttering. The audio is fine, but the video stutters ever so slightly. It's faint, but enough to make you slightly woozy if you're watching it. And I have NO idea what's causing it. The MKV, if played by itself, doesn't pose the same issue, and when I use Handbrake to convert it to mp4 it also plays fine. However, if I convert that mp4 to WMV-HD, I get the same problem. I don't think I have any codec issues. I only have DivX 7 Pro and XviD installed, and use DivX for my HD encoding. I used to have K-Lite before I reformatted my computer, but chose to leave it off to avoid any possible conflicts. I can't imagine what the problem is, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I just installed Xpress 184.108.40.2062 in Windows 7 and when it starts my whole screen turns to 16 colors, but Xpress starts up. Once started (and barely readable), however, I can not add an input file by either drop-and-drag or using the "add file" button. I used the trial version previously on XP and really liked it, but after buying this for Win 7, I am having significant problems even getting started.
Have you tried right-clicking on the .exe file in your program files folder, going to properties and using the Compability Wizard (compatability tab)? I don't have Windows 7, but I imagine the Comp. Wizard would still be kicking around. I had a problem with 220.127.116.112 on Vista, and used this. I set it to run for XP Service Pack 2 and it works, but whenever it's open it turns off Aero, though that's a small price to pay.
To recap: right click on .exe file in program files, go to Properties, Compatability tab, check the Compatability mode box and run it for XP (if this still applies in Windows 7).
