I am using TMPGenc Editor 3 for many years to cut/edit my TV Recordings. Most of the older recordings (from german Sat TV) have 720i MPEG2 format. Question : Can TMPGEnc de-interlace and generate a 720p output file ?
I am asking because i have found in my video collection one video clip with 720p which I had cut with TMPGenc out of a TV Recording which has actually 720i. But I do not remember what I had (accidentally) changed in the output format settings to get a progressive video at the .
I just loaded the trial version, and am very satisfied with its performance exept for one minor item. According to the specs, the software should be able to import wtv files, but it won't. It is not a major issue, as I can load the converted dvr-ms file. Before purchasing the retail version I would like to know if this is just a feature not available in the trial version? Also, before installing the retail version, should the trial version be uninstalled?
This depends on your .wtv video stream, if it has an MP4 AVC video stream is not possible to import since MPEG Editor 3 can only import based MPEG-2 video stream files, so you may need to import .wtv files only containing such video stream.
Also check about other points mentioned here: http://tmpgenc.pegasys-inc.com/en/product/tme3_operation.html#6
WTV file importation is possible on the computer used to record the file, or on computer able to create this type of file. Recordings copy-protected by a DRM scheme cannot be imported. Only WTV files containing MPEG-2 video and MP2 audio can be imported.
I just want a better MPG2 file edited and encoder.
I currently use TMPGenc DVD author 1.5 ( ancient i know )
A friend of mine is now using MPEG editor 3 and I would be happy with that, but can somebody tell me if Video Mastering Works 5 does exactly the same + a little more, or is it a different piece of software altogether
The main difference is that MPEG Editor 3 has Smart Rendering, which will allow you to edit your MPEG-1/2 video without having to re-encode it on output. If you only need to cut out scenes, MPEG Editor 3 should be good for you.
With Video Mastering Works 5, you will always have to re-encode the entire video when you output, even if you are outputting to the same format and specs.
However, TVMW5 allows you to do more during the editing, such as apply filters, overlay video, add transitions, captions, subtitles, animation, etc. You will be able to do way more with TVMW5, but you will always have to do a full encode at output.
Download the trials first and see which suits your needs better.
Under the "Cut Edit" menu, I do some editing and cut out the bits that i don't want, The bits that i cut out disappear out of the thumbnail preview at the bottom. My question is our do i get them back without loosing the cuts i already have, I know i could click undo, but that also undoes anything after also, I also if i come out of the edit section. I then don'y get the option to undo, The only way i can see to do it is to select undo all cuts. but that looses evercut.
I have today tried to update my TMPGEnc MPEG Editor 3 to Version: 184.108.40.206. This resulted in an error of
Error 1402. Could not open key:
VERIFY THAT YOU HAVE SUFFICENT ACCESS TO THAT KEY, OR CONTACT YOUR SUPPORT PERSONNEL.
I have tried turning off UAC and running the update. I have also tried system restore but the previous version 220.127.116.11 was broken. I then uninstalled this version and tried to install 18.104.22.168 but got the same error 1402. I am running Vista 64 bit with all updates.
