I had to reload Windows 10 last week and reinstall. Today I'm seeing a crash while encoding:
An error occurred communicating with the output process (6)
Exception Code: 0xc0000005
Faulting Address: 0x539f9ee6
Faulting Module: MovieMPEG.vme (Base address 0x53760000)
Additional Information 1: 0x00000000
Additional Information 2: 0x00000018
I did open a support ticket, but I thought I'd paste here in case someone has something easy to try/change. Since used it work on the same hardware, I'm assuming it's related to a change in the environment. I'm looking for some ideas on where to look since it's a new OS load.
Download Revo Uninstaller Free and use that one to uninstall TVMW5, because it also takes care of any left overs that might still be lurking with out your knowledge.
As an extra precaution, you can also download CCleaner Free and set than one to scan your registry afterwards, which might still be leading to TVMW5 and its MovieMPEG.vme, which after all was completely revoved by using Revo.
Using these two in combination should get completely rid of any traces of TVMW5, so you can do an actual 100% clean fresh instal of it again.
The automatic bit rate setting does not seem to work properly because if I have a source that is, for example, a constant 25 Mbps, the auto bit rate setting sets itself to 12.4. It also overshoots the maximum bit rate by quite a bit and sets it to 49.6 Mbps. The format I am seeing this behavior on is MP4 H.264/AVC and the source video is the same. In other words, I output something using the MP4 H264.AVC format and then used that as my source.
I asked Support the same question and this is their response, which does not seem to make any sense to me.
"It checks the resolution of the source file and based on that it is
Is not about making the source and the output to the same bitrate, this
function is to adjust the best possible bitrate for output.
So in other words it is a function for not make the bitrate too low.
If you want to output in the same bitrate you have to set it manually in
the Bitrate settings without using the automatic function."
If the source is 25 Mbps, the setting the output to 12.4 would result in quality loss I would assume, right? I know that is not a given, but it seems reasonable.
I was wondering if it`s possible to make 25fps the default for encoding etc as the majority of our encodes are to this frame rate. It`s a bit of a hassle to have to change it from 30fps every time we do a new encode. Perhaps a setting in preferences to set the default framerate.
I try to import file with *.mxf extension and get a message that file has not video. File created in Adobe Premiere Pro СС2017 with codec Avid DNxHD 120 1920x1080 50i. Other mxf files with other codecs is importing normally
I have a lot of clips that are upside down.
I use the "Rotate" filter to rotate 180 degrees.
Then I want to cut/edit the rotated clips, but when I go to Cut/Edit, the clips are inverted again.
Can I make the filter stick when I go to cut/edit?
The workaround is to render out the rotated clips and then re-import them to cut/edit.
But I wonder if I can do both the rotation and cut/edit in the same session?
I think the easiest way is to use another program to change the rotation setting in the video's metadata before you bring it into TVMW6.
Try out movierotator.com for a program that can change the setting without having to re-encode.
Did you make chapters in your video? If not, you'll need to go to the clip editor and add your chapters there. That's what the menu builder bases its chapters on. You can't add chapters from the Menu stage.
A feature that I have been wanting for awhile now is a feature to just 'Copy' the audio from the original video. Audio is normally so small, that re-encoding it is unnecessary. I believe it's better to just copy the original audio so that their isn't any quality loss when converting it. There are some codecs not supported by TMPGenc VMW 6 also, for example DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 channel.
is it possible to freeze frames for a period amount of time inside a single clip?
I have an audio-recording, which is a longer then the original video-clip. So i would like to freeze (stretch) certain parts inside the video-clip until the audio arrives at the specific marker and then continue with the regular video.
Is the audio a separate file from the video? If not, you'll have to demux them into separate files.
I would then use the timeline mode and put the audio on one layer and the video on another.
Then, you can use the clip editor to create a separate clip of the frame(s) you want to stretch.
Back in the timeline, you can then lengthen that clip to the appropriate time.
Thank you for your suggestion. I already tried that, but the effort for creating the exact frame is way to much when i have to do this around 50 times per video.
An easy way would be to just cut the video where you want to have the still-image and the stretch the cut clip to the right for the desired period of time. Unfortunately TMPGEnc continues with the original video-footage when doing that.
When I output a project to DVD, the program is only using 20% of my CPU (R7 1700, 8c/16t). I've tried enabling CUDA to see if that speeds things up, but it actually slows down the encode (only by a couple of minutes).
I had the same issue when I imported a TAW5 project that included previously rendered output with subtitles. I found the re-rendering process spent a very long time displaying "analysing subtitles" before finally outputting the lossless video. During this process it only used one of the four cores of my processor.
If you have the same issue, I resolved it by creating a new TAW6 project rather than importing the old TAW5 version. The new version ran using almost 100% processor..
I've noticed the same thing in my case too. Converting a video from one format to another, typically can take anywhere from just a few minutes to several hours. And for the so many hours, the CPU is only half utilized! why wouldn't the software run the cpu at full load and reduce the encoding time by one third?
I used for many years TAW5 and, also if with some limitations (specially on menu side), I found it very useful for my purposes.
I would like to upgrade to TAW6 but I need a new feature: leave streams unchanged (in my case audio stream). Recently I was asked to produce a blu-ray with HD audio (for some concert recordings) but with TAW5 (or TAW6) this is impossible.
I know for sure audio stream is perfectly blu-ray compatible and I understand why TAW cannot decode these audio streams (royalties for DTS HD): but if TAW had the ability to leave streams unchanged (without any decoding)? Obviously at the risk of those who use this option
I cannot afford for this purpose to buy professional authoring suite: what do you think?
I had the same request some time ago and they basically said no. I have both the DTS and Dolby encoding suite but like you I cannot afford the professional authoring tools for BD generation. I can build TrueHD and DTS-MA tracks but cannot utilize them in TAW5 or TAW6, both which I have. It would be nice if the app allowed you to select these but only muxed them together with the video at output time. I would save me a lot of hassle and make this a truly wonderful product.
Due to this issue, I've started exploring multiAVCHD which appears to allow this although their menu system is not nearly as good as TAW.
