I use this software mainly to move videos between PC and DVD-RAM in either direction. I download videos in various formats to burn onto DVD-RAM, but as I do this only rarely I keep forgetting the exact procedure. I know I have to
(1) use the Editor to read in the video,
(2) convert it into some other format, and then
(3) use the VRCopy output option to add the converted file into an existing/empty DVD-RAM.
What I can never remember properly is the second stsge - conversion. Can anyone enlighten me?
Every so often my TMPGNC crashes during VBR, at the half-way point, AFTER creating the "log" file. Is there a way to now complete the encoding with the existing log file, so it doesn't have to do it all over again?
I saved a movie to DV after using Windows Movie Maker (WMM) to add titles. The resulting avi, whether I use WMM or Pixella to download it from the camcorder has audio at a significantly slower speed than the video when played by TMPGenc 4.0 XPress (18.104.22.168) on the clip screens, on the encode preview, and on the final encode ac3.
When I play said downloaded movie in WMM, it plays fine, and WMP plays it fine. Using TMPGenc, the movie played fine, prior to adding the WMM titles.
What do I have to do to adjust TMPGenc or do I have to fix the file?
I'm trying to make a dvd file, but the output file will be 118 percent of the dvd's capacity, and I cant set it to 90 percent of the disk (looks like the function is disabled) the original file is about 900mb , I want to convert it to Pal 16:9 625 line.
Hello. I have recently installed Editor Premium on a powerful Dell which has been dealing with TMPG 4.0 Express and Editor 1.0 for many months without any problem. If I start a new project (or open an existing one), add some files, open the transition editor, optionally select a transition (or not) and then select OK to close the transition editor, the program displays a message "runtime error 204 at 0BOA29FC" and crashes.
TMPG Support said:
"It is possible you may have other processes in the background that is

all processes that are not needed. I also recommend having the latest
.NET framework 2 and 3 and DirectX installed. Also, if you have any
codec packs or ffdshow then I suggest removing them as well."
I hardly have any startup programs. I have now run all Windows updates (including .NET fraework 3), have updated DirectX and have updated the ATI dispay driver. I'm 99.9% certain that the ffdshow codec pack has never been installed - I have been warned against it many times on the web.
Google identifies 2 oriental websites mentioning "error 204" +pegasys, but I can't understand them.
I have found kservice.exe and removed it. No improvement.
What kind of graphics card do you have? Their spec says 3D graphics card with DirectX 9 capabilities. You could have the software DirectX 9 installed but if your card isn't directx 9 compatible then this could be a problem.
oh yah btw, you might not want to quote them...they usually have a disclaimer and might not like you using it for posting on blogs or forums.
One other thing I do know is that Runtime error is an error in memory conflict at runtime.

Thanks nTekka. My graphics card is an ATI Radeon X600 256MB HyperMemory and the spec on their website says "Full DirectX 9 support".
I'm not sure how to detect whether I have codec packs or ffdshow installed.
I have the same problem on two systems with TMPGEnc editor. All my frameworks are up to date. No extra codecs installed. It crashes the system every time I use a transition. Have submitted a report every time as well. Any news on this? This pudate has been a waste of money if this is not fixed at some point.
I just purchased and installed MPEG Editor v2 Premium, did a quick test project, primarily to get the license, and make sure things worked, and they did, so I shut it down. I then tried to browse the internet using Firefox, but my firewall allerted me that TMPG MPEG Editor was tring to access the internet by sending commands to explorer.exe. The only programs that I know of that try to access the internet without the knowledge of the user, are securty threats. So when I denied access (via the firewall alert), my browser was inoprerable, unable to connect to anything. After a while trying to intercept this behaviour I was forced to de-install MPEG Editor 2 and reboot, before the internet was accessible. Is this behavior intended?
iono about that... sounds suspicious to me and I don't mean with MPEG Editor. Why would it access explorer.exe (your Windows explorer) and not iexplorer.exe (Internet explorer)... but anyway how is all that connected to Firefox and MPEG Editor 2P? give us some details...sounds like you might got a piggy back riding trojan off of MPEG Editor 2P.
I used TempEnc to removed a clip from a large video clip and it worked with any error messages - just checked the clip and there is no sound... next time I tried the same huge clip only minutes after the first time I have error "-537403781 180576" which I didn't get the first time...
I have no problem what so ever with Media Player.
What does -537403781 180576 mean??????
Only reference I found while googling is a german forum and my german is so rusty its not worth mentioning but I did see it had to be a codec problem.
This is the info I get with Gspot when I render:
DirectShow claims to be able to play the file. The following combination of filters were used:
Your under MPEG Editor 2 thread and that program doesn't support AVI format. So i'm assuming you mean TMPGEnc 2.5? How large is your video clip? dimension, bitrate, file size? What output format did you use? I think it might be your encoder, if you are using AVI Xvid or DivX for re-encoding the setting might not be correct. Those kind of errors isn't normal for TMPGEnc type of error.
The videos is different in sizes... they are sometimes around 700 Mb and sometimes smaller. Dimension, bitrate = I have no idea... not bother what those things... its more info than I need to know... I just want a piece of the large file... output is normally PAL if I understand what output means correctly... after I get those errors and keep using the program there is no sound on the finished result...
Hello, I start new project and import from DVD source. I want to be able to select many certain parts of the DVD to add to the project as one file. Whenever I select a part to cut out it does not cut it in the right place. It leaves a part of the frame...a very brief blip of the frame. I move the cut exactly over the head but it always cuts just a bit before or after the head leaving a bit of the frame in the final movie.
The only way I've been able to work around this is to make the selection I want and click OK, then I have to import the DVD source all over again to select another scene from the DVD. I have to do this with every scene I want to include in the final movie. This tool is suppose to be easy to use, but in reality it is not easy.
Why won't it cut properly?
Why do I have to import the DVD source each time I want to select a scene to add to my movie?
It might be normal that there seems to be a frame left behind, it's probably just the way TME2 displays the frame. If you right click on the preview area and select thumbnail display settings > I Pictures only then you won't see that 1 remaining frame. TDA3 does a better job at displaying the frames, it can display 1 frame at a time so you don't get that remnant frame, but this doesn't affect your video.
If you want to split your chapters up then try using the Split tool next to the chapter flag on the lower left corner. It will split the video into however you want into separate clips so you don't have to re-import every time you do a cut.
Thanks for your help. Ok I see what you mean now. It doesn't include those little blips in the final encoded file. It is a bit deceiving. Why does it do that? I've not seen any other editors do that. Is there a reason?
Hello... I am trying to edit some video clips... I can without problem take mpg and cut it etc... but when I choose .avi I only get video!!! The sound WONT come up!!!! I have no idea what to do... have tried everything... am I missing codecs or something???
You may be right, probably a missing codec, either AC3, AAC or MP3. Likely MP3 because your using AVI container. Use GSpot on your source video to find out what audio it uses then download the appropriate codec online somewhere.
Let me know if i'm way off or if you run into some other problems.
I have used Gspot already and it say that I aint missing any codecs... I have no idea what is wrong... Gspot said everything is working and all codecs are in place... but I am gonna try clean regedit once and then install TMPGEnc again and if that doesnt work I will upgrade codecs anyway...
Could this problem have anything to do with the fact that I dont have Windows Media installed? I only have window media classic installed because I use other programs to watch video clips..
oooooooooooooooooooooooooook me yet again... program is now showing audio link also under video link BUT when I try to edit the clip only video ends up... still NO sound... what the heck is the problem????
before audio wasnt showing but now it is.... still need help guys...
ooooooooooooooook but this time it would help if you can tell me what audio codec your avi file uses. Probably best if you simply download a codec pack with all the codecs you ever want to use, but be warned this could cause problems later on if your unorganized. It will probably work for the meantime tho, go to www.freecodec.com and download K-Lite 3.25 Full, then load up TMPGEnc 2.5 and import your files again. Also make sure that you have DirectShow file reader enabled in the Options > Environmental settings > VFAPI Plug-in and uncheck AVI file reader so FFDShow can kick in to decode your file.
