When dragging a dvd into mastering works 7, all it does is name the individual episodes title 1 etc, is there anyway the software can bring in the name of the series etc. Thanks very much for any input
Are there any tutorials for this software available anywhere? I've seen the help files at help.pegasys-inc.com, but they are pretty cryptic. I really need something with more explanation, advice as to best settings, etc. For example, for color correction and stablization.
I have some MOV files which are recorded with NDI Tools 5
The codec is SHQ2 and can be played by VLC
Is there a way to add the codec to the list of codecs TVMW can decode ?
Despite NDI Tools 5 being installed on this machine, TVMW only see the audio track in the MOV file...
Try doing this attempt
1- Install K-Lite Codec Pack
2- Start Mastering Works
2- Deselection in the preferences "File Reader Setting" all codecs and leave Active DirectShow File Reader
3- Restart the program and try if it works
This is the only way that remains to digest unrecognized video files
At the end of the work, remember to activate the deselected codecs check
That worked !
(hopefully K-Lite hasn't messed up too much other video-related software tools & codecs on my system...the installation config screens were pretty long & complex, I disabled as much as I felt necessary...crossing fingers.)
One suggestion though also for others:
During setup of the LAV Splitter, make sure to do these settings:
Subtitle Selection Mode: No Subtitles
Blu-ray Subtitles (PGS):
Remove marker at Enable Automatic Forced Subtitle Stream
This will prevent that you get some pretty huge forced subtitles showing up in the image, also when working with MKV files that contains SRT or PGS subs.
In cases when wanting forced subs on video, such as for the foreign spoken parts, there its much better to use TVMW7's own subtitle tool to import the subs, which gives entirely free hands to work with the subs.
Hello, I currently have VMW6 installed on my pc and most often encode with cuda on my 1080ti. For the most part it works ok though I do notice my system seems to lag and slow down after using MW6 and a system restart solves this. I'm assuming this issue is related to drivers. I was considering upgrading to MW7 (hoping this would fix my issue) until I saw a few of the posts here that some users are still having problems with nvidia gpus and drivers. I'm curious if VMW7 works better with the new RX6000 series of gpus from AMD? I'm most likely going to hold off until the next gen gpus release later this year but I'm hoping to get some feedback from users who encode with either red or green.
#1 - Radeon or Geforce? What works best for gpu encoding with VMW7?
#2 - Will I notice shorter encoding times if I upgrade from my 1080ti to a 3080ti or 4080ti? Or higher end RX6800 or 6900?
#3 - I know vram is important and my current gpu has 11gb, would it be noticeable if my new card only had 8gb?
Don't put your hopes too high on brand new series of GPU's being released later here in 2022, because they could be a whole lot more expensive than usual.
There is still a severe shortage on chips and the prices on current produced hardware is increasing.
But GeForce will still be the better choice due to being supported, Radeon is to my knowledge from earlier versions of of both VMW and TAW not supported, one reason why i got rid of the Radeon i once had and put my focus on GeForce instead.
The rest you ask about i don't really know much about, other than the more powerful CPU, RAM and GPU (GeForce) you have, the better it is in VMW and TAW when encoding.
I meant to say about Radeon support, that it has never have been supported in VMW and TAW.
(was not allowed to edit it in the other message)
So GeForce is the better choice due to the CUDA being supported.
Try unchecking all codecs leaving only Quicktime active and see if it works.
If it does not work, install the LAV filter, start the PC and select only DirectShow file reader as above, unchecking all the others and leaving only the latter active
I just purchased (Master Works 7) to be used for converting interlaced AVI files to Mpeg-2 and need help using the settings. I tried using the internal help option, but it doesn't always give descriptions, enough details and some of it seems contradicting. I need to know the optimal settings that I should use in (Format mode) to get the best possible picture quality. I don't care how large the final file size will be or how long the encoding process takes.
I will be using the (Generic Mpeg File Output) and I'm limited to the (Standard Encoder).
Screen shots are a must when asking questions about software.
Are there any other Pegasy forums available that allow you to post screen shots?
Usually AVI files are in mpeg 4 so you go to reduce the quality if you convert them to mpeg 2.
It is better for you to have a better quality to convert them to MP4 (h264) or (h265) and you choose the bitrate to use the higher the quality and the better it is important that the source files are of good quality.
On the other hand, if you decide you want to convert them to mpeg 2 the maximum bitrate and 8,000 Mbps a higher bitrate does not affect the output quality of the video much.
Converting AVI to Mpeg4 totally ruins the picture quality because Mpeg4 uses way too much compression.
8,000 Mbps is normally used when encoding to DVD because of the DVD size limitations. I'm formatting to Mpeg-2(file) and I want to use the least amount of compression, I don't care about how large the finished files will be, they are being stored on a 4TB HDD and played thru an Oppo UDP-203 player.
So far I've been experimenting with the VBR (Constant Quality) for the (Rate Control Mode)and setting the Bitrate to 15,000 and Quality to 100. When playing the finished file it shows the video bitrate being used as right around 13,000. If it's actually using 13,000 with very little scene movement then I would think formatting the files using 15,000 should be just just right.
Do you actually own Master Works 7?
After updating the nvdia driver for rtx 2080 super video card from version 472.84 to version 511.65, enconding with cuda activated and passed from 8 minutes to 13 minutes with a 40 minute video file at 1080p 25fps I had to restore the 472.84 driver to decrease this duration .
I have windows 11 running
With my recent purchased Asus GT1030-2G-BRK using 473.04 for Windows 7 64-bit, CUDA does not even work.
CUDA is stuck at 0.0% when encoding.
So that is one that also can be written to the bugs list of haing faulty CUDA.
Luckily i could dig up the 471.68 on Asus's site instead, so hopefully that one will work a lot better when i come around to installing that one instead.
It is not a video card problem but of the new NVIDIA drivers that do not work correctly with Mastering Works I hope that with a software update they will solve it.In the meantime I use the old driver since with the new ones the rendering time has increased by about a third.
I have returned back to my old GTX 650 with the 457.30 drivers for that one.
At first it did also not work, i had to do a pretty hard cleaning of left overs that seemed to still be left and also do a heavy claining of the registry.
Then i used the optimizer again in TVMW7, shut TVMW7 down and ran it again.
CUDA began working again as it used to before this whole mess, so i will stick to my old GTX 650 for now.
I got my self a new much faster Windows 10 Pro machine and put an Asus GeForce GTX 1650 Phoenix OC in it and no matter what driver i have tested for it before 472.84 works, nor the latest ones, where i tested both Studio and Game Ready drivers.
I honestly believe its Pegasys' own softwares TVMW7 and TAW6 which has a serious bug in their CUDA support that they have to get fixed and not NVIDIA that has to fix something to their drivers.
I have zero problems with CUDA support in something like DVDFab 12 and Topaz Video Enhancer AI, they run full speed ahead on using CUDA.
As long Pegasys don't wan't to realize that they have a problem and fix their CUDA support, then its R.I.P. with the CUDA in all their softwares.
>Now the CUDA is completely dead.

The CUDA is only used when the benchmark results indicate that it outperforms the CPU in processing. You should be able to confirm that it works by applying heavy filters such as Precision Noise Filter at maximum.
I'm just trying to find out how to use Video Mastering Works to zoom-in or zoom-out within a video clip. Currently, I have to use my Corel VideoStudio's "pan and zoom" filter to zoom-in or zoom-out on segments of the video that I am editing but I would rather use Video Mastering Works for all of my video editing.
I've checked the Help documentation, the FAQs, and tried Googling it but I can't find any instructions for zooming-in or out in Video Mastering Works.
Does Video Mastering Works have a zoom function for video editing and, if it does, can you give me instructions on how to do it?
Error on initializing.
Tmpgenc mastering works 7, full version don't start in normal mode or safe mode.
I've got this error on loading:
Failed to initialize VMESys.dll. See below for details.
An error occurred during a process. (Error code: 0x80048016)
I've uninstall and reinstall it. I've update my graphic video card too: Nvidia 1050ti.
My system in windows 10.
Tmpgenc mastering works 7 won't start. Failed on initialization.
Please, help me.
When I try to adjust the crop filter settings (top, bottom, left, right) on HD source material, the program slows down tremendously.
My video card is a Radeon RX570. My operating system is Windows 10 x64. The video driver is the latest version. I did not experience this problem with Video Mastering Works 6. I only started experiencing it after upgrading to VMW 7.
