Question - Older TMPGend AW 4 help Needed No.71478
Steven Bidelman  Mail /  )  2020-06-01 22:52:29 ( ID:vze6sxunvjh )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have not used this for 5 years. I created my own custom dvd's in the past (about 5 years ago).
I re-installed it last week, but unfortunately I am having trouble (the tutorials are not detailed enough) with the amount of data (I am using MP4 file sources) I wish to place on the discs.

How I did it in the past I do not remember, but I was able to successfully put more data ( ie.3hrs on a 4.7, and similarly more time on a 8.5) on the discs then they would actually hold.

I vaguely remember either/or changing the bitrates and maybe using dvd shrink.

I posted this at the AW 6 area to insure it would be read, as the forum for the AW4 hadn't been looked at in three years.

In summation, I am ok with all aspects except how to extend the data length on the discs. If somebody has a better tutorial, I would take the whole thing. The one that came with AW4 is not that great in addressing this problem.

Thanks,
Steve B.



Question - Simulation vs DVD No.71475
Dean  Mail /  )  2020-05-31 13:25:11 ( ID:0cc.476orpk )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Pulling my hair out making a basic DVD with one top menu page with two menu choices to play one of two different video files. I have it all authored. When I check it on the simulation the curser controller works great. I can switch back and forth between each motion menu and select the video I want to watch and then watch it.

But when I burn the DVD, the curser doesn't work and it won't allow me to click on on either menu. I get nothing.

Any help would be appreciated.



Question - Placing an Audio gram on top of a video No.71461
fwibbler  Mail /  )  2020-04-22 23:10:17 ( ID:tpn.msd/lpa )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hi,

Is it possible to place an Audiogram (I think thats what its called) on top of a video with TMPG Mastering works 7?
What would be the best way of doing it so it matches the audio of the movie?

Many thanks.
Graham


tkrave  2020-04-24 13:08:36 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I'm not really sure what you mean about "audiogram" but you can put any audio file overlaid on a video track using the Timeline editing mode.

It works like layers in Photoshop, where you can put any audio/video on top of other audio/video files.



Question - Menu: replace buttons/images with text? No.71457
George  2020-04-21 03:56:23 ( ID:tk4atumv4xo )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello everyone.

Title says all. I'd like to replace buttons (Chapter, Play etc.) with plain text, in order to use other languages for example. But it seems plain text cannot function as a Menu Link?

I've just created a "Note" page and it adds the 'Note' and 'Return' buttons. Am I stuck with images as buttons/links or is there a way to do this?

I guess I can export any text as image and import it into AW6 replacing whatever I like, but it's overkill.


George  2020-04-21 07:51:57 ( ID:tk4atumv4xo )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

One workaround I just thought of: replace the button image with a transparent gradation (using Source File Settings/Browse with Source Wizard) and then place the desired text on top of it.

Well... not a bad idea, but highlight colors are rendered useless this way I think. Back to the drawing board. Anyone?


George  2020-04-21 22:06:03 ( ID:tk4atumv4xo )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I've located a helpful answer by tkrave (text button style, link below). I'll try to work with that and see what happens. It's the first time I try a proper menu with Authoring Works. Its menu system was always confusing to me and very unattractive to use. It ultimately does have its logic though. Hopefully, more freedom will be given to the user in v7.

tkrave  2020-04-24 13:13:27 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Yeah, sounds like Text buttons are the best choice for you.

The menu editor in Authoring Works has been something I've wanted updated for a long long long time. It's basically been the same since the first version I've used back in 2006! It really needs to be more customizable, where you can create your own pages and menu structure, place your own buttons and assign the appropriate function. The menu editor is the weakest part of the software in my opinion.


George  2020-05-04 08:02:38 ( ID:tk4atumv4xo )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Thank you, tkrave. I managed to create an acceptable menu, after the initial struggle. I guess it's not possible to combine both image AND text buttons.

Yes, I hope they finally put some real work on the Menu editor. I can't imagine what else is left to improve. Adding ready-made template packs and 8K/16K/32K/64K (I'll stop here...) video support is not really that exciting, or helpful any more.


George  2020-05-06 20:07:58 ( ID:8gpzkotiae6 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

...and DTS support would be nice, but I guess we can forget about that.



Question - Using mastering works on Gopro videos No.71456
Ghost Rider  Mail /  )  2020-04-19 08:47:15 ( ID:j5vig.rzsum )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello forum members,

Last year I demoed and bought Video Authoring work 6 and today I am demoing Mastering works.

I make Goprp mountain bike videos. Mostly for myself I am looking to improve the video. I have a Gopro Hero 5 and I know upgrading to a hero 7 might be the biggest improvement. For the time being I am recording in 1080 at 60fps. I then opened and trimmed each file in VMW7 and ran the stabilizing filter at the default setting. I batch processed the analyzing processed. This is more of a test run. I did use the filter on one video to see if I could tell.

Can anyone give suggestions on other settings and filters that may improve my videos?


tkrave  2020-04-24 13:03:26 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

It's hard to say without seeing the source footage. There are some more artistic things you can do though, like adjusting the color balance to make colors pop more, or do black and white/sepia effects. There are quite a few filters that can create some neat effects like the glitch noise filter.

Remember that the default list of filters is not the full list; you can edit the list to see all of the filters available.



Question - Replace source clip No.71453
gordonmcdowell  Mail / Home )  2020-04-05 06:23:22 ( ID:auehrqlevdg )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I've created a Blu-ray project but need to iterate the underlying source video file. Timecode and audio same, but a visual has been swapped.

How do I keep a clip the same (chapter breaks, associated captions) but swap in new MP4 source for it?


gordonmcdowell  Mail / Home )  2020-04-05 06:48:21 ( ID:auehrqlevdg )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Got it. Renamed the file then program let me search for a replacement.



Question - Replace Video with jpeg clip without losing original audio No.71452
epicenter800  2020-04-05 05:03:04 ( ID:5nlqqa1rihr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello, is there a way to replace a few seconds of video with say a jpeg still without losing the audio from the video? I would like to use a title page while the audio from the video is playing and then fade into the original video display. Thanks!


tkrave  2020-04-10 04:44:05 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Go to Timeline mode and put your image(s) on a separate layer above your video.



Question - First Play video not playing on compiled DVD No.71450
Good Knight  Mail /  )  2020-03-28 21:04:44 ( ID:kb1jb2p9edw )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have a DVD I'm trying to Author which needs to have a copyright video play at the beginning prior to the top menu.

I have imported this video as a First Play track. When I simulate the DVD in the TMPGEnc Auhoring Works it plays the copyright video correctly before the menu pops up. But in the final compiled DVD it just goes straight to the opening menu.

I can see the Copyright video has been burnt to the disk, as it is it's own VOB file, but it doesn't play.

I have tried all three of the different options for 'Play what on insert', nothing works.

I have even tried making it into a non firstplay track, just making it a regular video track and telling the software to play that first before going to a menu. Once again it plays correctly during simulation, but not on the compiled DVD.

Hello everyone,
I have exactly the same problem and reported it to support. This bug only affects DVD making, not Blu Ray making.


Toussaint  Mail /  )  2020-06-29 15:45:58 ( ID:u4619gxuoxn )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello everyone,

It seems that the FIRST PLAY is not used by many users. This is the reason why Pegasys cares so little about the crash that affects this software. The response from the support that I obtained (Given to another user) consists in modifying the setting of the First play by choosing in the video drop-down tab: "Encode All Video Streams as Below" does not bring any repair to this breakdown. The system does not burn the First Play, nor does it save it to the ISO image disc.
So Pegasys, at work if you want your software not to be discredited.


JNPSTUDIO  Mail /  )  2020-07-12 00:36:35 ( ID:u4619gxuoxn )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello,

I have the same problem as Good Knight and Toussaint:

I did a Blu Ray project with a First Play, and then converted it onto DVD.
Then I created one image discs for each of them.

The Blu Ray image disc is read with VLC and the burned disc is read on my living room deck without any problem.
The First Play is played before the menu appears, which waits for an order.

On the other hand, the DVD image disc is played on VLC, but there is no First Play.
This is the menu that appears directly.

It is the same for the DVD burned and read on my living room deck: No First play, direct menu.

So I’m led to think that many TAW6 users don’t know what First Play is for. Generally, professionals use it as a warning on the prohibition to broadcast a work in a public place, except to expose themselves to legal recourse relating to the royalties for the musical works burned on the media.

For my part, the First Play is used to start my videos with my own logo of amateur videographer.

It’s very “Pro” and makes a big impact on my friends and family.

I contacted Pegasys TAW6 support to explain this problem to them, but it seems that they punted on the issue.

So will we be able to cherish the hope that Pegasys will seriously study this problem?

I hope so because I am convinced that this software is fabulous and that therefore it deserves to be up to what it can do so well elsewhere.

After many essays that I did under the aegis of Pegasys, which came to my aid in a very cooperative way, I was led to find that TAW6 was not at issue on the problem of not playing The First Play on the DVDs made with this app.

Indeed, it is VLC that is involved since I do not know what update. The physical DVDs made with TAW4 and TAW6 are all readable with my living room player (Sony) with the First Play.

The time I noticed a problem not reading First Play on my lounge reader was due to the use of an incorrect encoding of the MPEG 2 master which instead of being in "Program Stream" was in "Elementary Stream"

I therefore withdraw all my comments regarding any defect of TAW6 which remains for me the best consumer authoring software on the market.

Question - Custom menu links for special features page No.71448
Good Knight  Mail /  )  2020-03-25 03:14:03 ( ID:5opklhuintn )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I'm producing a DVD for a film. It consists of:

- The Film in both stereo and 5.1
- Film subtitles
- Directors commentary of film
- The trailer
- Behind the scenes video

I have made a separate special features menu with the trailer and the behind the scenes video on it. I would like to have a link to the directors commentary on that same Special Features page. But because it is an audio track of the main film, the only way I seem to be able to access it is in the audio setup page automatically generated for the film (track 1)

Is it possible to do this in this software? It seems like it shouldn't be a problem just to add a custom link but the interface feels very locked down.

Does anyone know where this stores the results?
I use this a lot and recently went to re-edit a video from some time ago. When I ran the Detector it finished immediately showing results. It must have got these from when I last edited the video, some weeks ago. I must have accumulated a large collection of these old Detections somewhere. I'd like to delete them.

To whom it may concerns.

I usually process my clips with Premiere Pro (output as MPEG2-DVD) and import them in TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 as m2v files, which work perfectly
Recently I have processed HD clips on premiere pro (output as H.264) and I have import them in TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 as mp4 files . However, the video jerks both when playing the timeline track and in the simulation mode.
I thank you in advance for your help

Export from Premiere Pro using the H.264 Blu-ray preset. Exporting just as .mp4 will give you a non-compliant file and will cause issues.
