I have some FLV files with Speex audio, I have noticed that this program supports FLV files but it will not load the Speex audio portion of the files. Does anyone know of a way to do this or if speex audio decoding will be added in a future version?
When I edit a video, I have to do two things:
1) Select a segment & save it to a new file.
2) Then remove that selected segment from the overall video, which also has to be saved to a new file.
I'm used to the simple SolveigMM interface. You mark a segment. Right click and save it. Then right click and delete it from the timeline. Press one button to save new video (with segment removed).
But in TMPGEnc Smart Renderer, it is so complicated. After I mark a segment, I see no option to quickly save the clip. There are so many confusing buttons. I tried reading the help manual...but it doesn't make sense to me.
Can someone please tell me some steps to accomplish the two things I need to do?
So you want to save both the part your are editing out and the resulting video with the edit?
You can't do it the way SolveigMM does it, mostly because TMSR5 does not use a timeline for editing.
In the clip editor window, you should select the segment you want to edit by using the split clip button to mark the beginning and end of the area you want to cut. The split clip button looks like this: <-|-> (a left arrow, a dividing line, and a right arrow). Once done, you should have blue and orange-marked segments.
Then click on OK. A window will appear asking which segments to keep; you'll want to keep both the blue and orange segments in your case.
You'll be back in the clip list window and you should have 3 clips (if you only want to remove one section). You should save the project now as a base project to create the two resulting videos you want.
After saving, delete the segment you want removed, then you can save and output that as your first file. There is an output option to merge all the clips into one video to create your edited overall video.
Reload your base project file and delete the other segments so you only have the section you want to edit out. Then save and output that.
Hope that makes sense. It sounds complicated, but it's not bad once you get used to it. It's just a different way of editing.
I have a few DVB-T recordings that I would like to record but the trial version of TMPGEnc Smart Renderer can't open them although I can play it and open in other programs.
Here's a small sample (9MB): https://pkj360.s.cld.pt

The sample's format is MPEG-4 Video Part2. TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 does not support the format other than that of MPEG-4 AVC.
Please check the recording settings of your capture device, then change to MPEG-4 AVC(H.264) if it is possible.
After activation/validation is already performed, can the computer be disconnected from the Internet?
As long as no updates are applied to smart renderer 5, the software is not moved to a new computer, the computer's OS/hardware is not changed, etc., will the software then function indefinitely after initial activation/validation, or will the software require the computer to be connected to the Internet periodically in order to continue functioning?
It's not phoning in to "Big Brother", but to the company that made the program. No need to get paranoid. Having said that, it does make the program more difficult to use, but I guess it's an anti-piracy measure.
I run windows 10 and I use the Task View feature in which I have 3 desktops setup within for multitasking. I noticed MPEG Smart Render 5 shows up on all desktops and not just the one I load the program on. Will there be a fix for this in the future?
When I make on Audio Fade-In filter with duration just in 1 second for AC3 this leads to re-encoding whole audio track!!! Why??? This filter must take affect just for 1 or 2 seconds (depend of audio frame lenght. for AC3 it just 32ms!)
After installing the new version 18.104.22.168
when you try to start
I get the error "the key was not present in the dictionary"
After pressing OK, the program does not start.
I went back to version 22.214.171.124
I've been very impressed and very happy with Smart Renderer 5, for the most part. I've pulled a bunch of different kinds of files into it, and it has managed to smart render my edited versions in most cases without a problem. Furthermore, I've given it a few mix-and-match jobs, where the Master clip had radically different codecs and/or resolution from some of the Rescue clips, and yet, every time, I've gotten a smooth render of the combination of the two or more files; very impressive.
However I've also been experiencing an intermittent problem with Smart Renderer 5. About once every five files or so, Smart Renderer 5 will simply reject the file I'm trying to work with. I'll get the following message: "There is no Smart Render-able clip in the Source. It is necessary to add one clip that can be smart rendered at least."
What do I do about this? What do I have to do to make the clip acceptable to Smart Renderer 5? For the record, the last file where I had this problem was an flv file with the following stats:
Well, I found out what was causing the problem, but I have no idea how to fix it. Does anyone here know what to do about the following problem
I opened up the Clip Properties and discovered that they listed there why Smart Renderer 5 was saying that this clip was not Smart Render-able. The reason listed was low_delay_hrd_flag = 1 (Not Supported).
I have no idea what that means. Does anyone here know what that means? And does anyone here know how to fix that? Thanks for any help!
My mp4 avc videos from Sony SL smartphone have Variable frame rate: for example, frame rate 29.685 fps, minimum frame rate 14.847 fps, maximum frame rate 30.354 fps. When I edit this video in TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 it frame rate is constant 29,723 fps. The resulting video with sound desynchronizes(( I need output video with variable frame rate.
It is my wish to edit videos with variable framerate in TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5. Thank you.
The software description implies that it can detect commercial breaks but trying with a mp4 video, that has a number of long (5 second) black parts in it, detects nothing! Am I missing something here? Do I need to buy the "TMPGEnc Movie Plug-in Commercial Candidates Detector" ?
The Commercial Candidates Detector is already integrated into the software I think. I'm not sure it will work on a 5 second black segment though, as I think it looks for segments that are the length of normal commercials (15 seconds, 30 seconds, etc.).
Other video editors that have this facility (VideoRedo for example) search for black frames and I assumed this worked the same way. This is how I'm doing it at the moment, using VideoRedo to find the ad breaks and Smart Renderer 5 to do the editing. I was hoping to be able to do it all in SR5.
Interestingly I've now used SR5 with some films with full advert breaks and it works reasonably well however, it does only seem to detect black or fixed frames on a few seconds long so I don't see why it shouldn't work with the programmes I had tried that had some simple black sequences of 5 seconds or so.
