Basically my requirement is multi mode which i've found in this software.
Currently using trial version and it fulfill all my requirements except in multi mode there is no next/previous fame button on the right/left video. By placing this button help me to sync the video easily. It is difficult to sync video using seek bar. I hope in future developers include this feature in upcoming versions.
NOTE: Kinovea is a nice freeware software which support multi mode. The Drawback is it's performance. Anyhow it is an excellent software.
I have just completed my evaluation of the product.
1. The Category function is seriously weak!
1. a) To tag a video for one or more categories, isn't something like Ctrl+Click on a category label faster then drag and drop?
1. b) It is almost useless since I can not select multiple categories and have the related items all display in the main library view. It should be possible to let me choose to display only videos from category A and/or category B and/or category C etc.
1. c) At least 3 sub levels should be allowed. Currently, only 2 levels. That makes a more sophisticated design of category tree impossible.
2. I like the TileShot creation
2. a) I find a TileShot is more effective than story thumbnail in helping me to recall what a video is. Sadly, there is no way I can relate a Tileshot to a video after I have created one, let alone a quick view of a video's TileShot from within Karma itself
Btw, the lack of 1. b) is the main reason I won't buy a license for this product.
+ Ability to give titles to chapters that you create in editor.
+ Give the option "Chapter Browse view" inside the browser, so that the user can quickly browse/search through all of the chapters archive from all the movies they have created.
+ Add subcategories ability. Example: lets say i have 2 main categories, basketball and football, i want to be able to create a subcategory in the category "Football" that only contains matches from Arcenal F.C.
+ Give the option to the users to be able to use small icons (128 x 128px)of their choice, to categorize videos in addition to simple color tagging.
So, the feature I 've always wanted from a media manager is to be able to create shortcut files(that come with their own thumbnail when viewed within windows explorer) in a folder of my choice, out of the scenes/chapters that I set within a video clip , so that when i double click on them the video clip to which they reffer, opens, but in the specific time that the scene/chapter starts at.
This way you can create a library of such shortcut files and categorize them as well.
Lets say you re a big football fan and you have already used TMPG KARMA to set great goals moments in every match you have.
Lets now say you have a specific player that you admire and you want to only see his goals.
By performing a filtered search through your shortcut scene files you can easily retrieve and watch only the goals of your favourite player!
Thank you for taking the time to read my request and hopefully you 'll find it essential and innovative as I do!
Anyone try this? It definitely seems better than the free version. I like the video comparison feature. It feels like iTunes for your video files. I wish there was H.264 output for people who don't have CUDA though.
Yes, I have bought it, installed it, but won't start ! I have tried many times re-installation. I have good PC and my os is Windows 7. Have alle updated drivers.
The "light" version of the program works fine, but TMPGEnc KARMA..Plus won¨'t start. Have sent for support-help, but no helps.
I've installed trial version of TMPGEnc KARMA..Plus (TMKP_Trial_188.8.131.52_setup_en.exe) but I failed to launch the application.
I tried to launch it on PC having the following configuration:
Core 2 Duo E8400, 2Gb RAM, ASUS P5K-E/WiFi, MSI 8800GT 512Mb
My PC was connected to Internet.
I got a message that application was stopped and here is detailed information:

I have much of the same problems! I tried the free version first and was happy with this, so I wanted the extra features in the full version. I even checked the Compatibility Chart to see wether Win7 64-bit was supported, and it was supposed to, but nothing happens when I try to open the program. This is rally a bad thing now that the jump to 64-bit versions is here with Win7...!
