The source is 23.976 fps progressive, as per above.
From this source, all I want is a PAL DVD that will play without stuttering. I don't mind 4% speedup (if I can get TMPGENC to do that, but I don't see how). But I cannot tolerate TMPGENC inserting extra frames, which is what it appears to be doing.
How do I get smooth 50Hz video from a 23.976 fps source?
I am having problems with Xpress 4.0 -126.96.36.1994. I record cable tv as a .ts file. If I playback the file with Nero the file is complete ie. 3 hours. I edit them (cut in sections) and convert the sections into AVI files. The problem is that when I add the file to a new project in Xpress it is not complete. For example the file is 3 hrs and when added to the project it is only 1hr+. Any ideas? Anyone?
I got an QT Reference file from my avid express, rendered it in tmpgenc to h264 and now it's washed out. Colors and black look bad. I used best quality...
What is the problem? Found many things on google, but seems all belong to mac.
TMPGEnc4XP.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Nvidia 9800GT M (CUDA 2.2 installed)
4 Gig RAM
T9400 Dual Core 2.53GHz
Vista 64 Ultimate
Toshiba Quad Core HD Processor (SpursEngine) Driver version 188.8.131.52 (latest)
TMPGEnc 4.0 complains that this is an old version however it is the latest i can find on any Toshiba site
It works well encoding a 1hour 48 min DVD to MPG format in under an about 1 hour, however only 1 core out of 4 is utilised??? Would it not be faster to utilise all 4 cores of the HD processor. Does TMPGEnc do this??? if so how can i enable it to use all 4 cores of the HD Processor.
when encoding from DVD into any format i get above erro at the last few frames (99%) encoded. Have tried encoding to DivX, MPEG-2 with Spurs enabled and disable and CUDA 2.0 enable and disabled. even in clip edit mode works fine untill i get to the last few frames then error occurs and i can not go to another position in the clip without the error occuring.
I am using the trial at the moment as I wanted to test the SpursEngine on my G50 Qosmio, Before i purchase the plugin. Spurs works great less than an hour to encode a 1 hour 48 minute DVD, but this error is annoying.
I don't think this error has anything to do with the SpursEngine plug-in.
This error seems to pop up every once in a while. A post at AfterDawn's forums suggests that the error is related to AC3 DVM audio, but their source file is an AVI and not a DVD/MPEG-2 so it might not help you. See this thread for more info: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/204024
Here are some other things you can try:
Cut the last few frames and see if the error occurs again. If it doesn't, then that means the last few frames might be corrupted somehow.
Import/rip the DVD in a different way. If this is a DVD rip from some other program, try using the Source Wizard to import the contents of the DVD directly from the DVD. If that's what you were doing, then try ripping it with some other program and import that.
Fromm all i could find it seems the error is related to FFDshow Audio filter which came as part of the Klite Mega Codec package.
I uninstalled Klite and the error still occurs FFDshow is no longer availabe..
I have been a customer of TMPGEnc since 2007 so i have the full version. Strangely enough using the full version (Klite un-installed) the error does not appear. So must me some limitation of the Trial with Spurs.
Will try Re-Encoding with Codecs re-installed.
Also strangely there is no CUDA options in the latest Retail version ??? Whats the go there??
Well it is deffinately the MPEG-2 Decoding. I ripped it without sound just video only and it still crashes with said error. So something is very wrong with the decryption of the MPEG-2 stream. Since i am ripping a Dual layer Dual sided Disk (the movie is split on 2 halves (stupid i know)) hence why i want to rip it and then join it. Damn annoying watching half a movie then having to flip the disk to watch the second half.
Have tried multiple MPEG-2 codecs too and it happens. Yet i can rip it fine with HandBrake 0.9.. (need to mess with the ripping functions a bit as the aspect ratio gets screwed up on Handbrake's DIVX encoding.) Have tried Fair Use and this rips ok as well except the audio is slightly out of sync.
So it all Points to an Issue with TMPGEnc.. Oh i tried ripping with an older version and it worked. The only difference is the older version of TMPGEnc 4.0Xpress 184.108.40.2064. That rips fine without the error so it is deffinately something that has changed in the latest couple of versions.
I'm having problems with videos I shrink for my iphone with TMPGenc 4.0 XPress. The audio and video end up 2-3 seconds out of sync once I put them on the iphone. Otherwise, everything else is fine - just audio and video way out of sync.
-The same video played on my computer in Quicktime plays well, with audio and video perfectly in sync.
-Videos converted in other software play well on my iphone with good a/v sync.
So, I'm wondering if anyone out there has found settings for TMPGenc 4.0 that result in videos that play correctly on the iPhone? Could you let me know any of the settings that you change from default in the MPEG-4 AVC mode?
My typical settings are as follows:
Baseline profile, Level 3
480x270 29.97 fps
1000 kbps 1-pass VBR, with 2400 kpbs maximum bitrate
Audio: 48000Hz, 160 kb/s, low complexit, RAW
I think I'll have to kick myself for not noticing the iPod Video container setting before. That was the key. I was using "Normal" container. Once I switched containers, the audio and video were in perfect sync.
I'm Transcoding footage from a Canon HF s100. The footage is AVCHD
1920x1080, 24p @ 24MB.
I'm using TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress which works fine. I'm going from AVCHD to QT Avid
DNxHD 90x (720p) and Avid DNxHD 115 8 bit (1080p).
I'm testing and look great. The issue is the Quicktimes seems to have a higher
contrast compare to the original footage. Much darker and richer darks. I could
change the contrast with TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress before transcoding it but I do not
want to do that.
My set ups are: millions of colors/ 709/ None Alpha.
Even I did try once to transcode it to QT none compression, a mean uncompress
and still is darker and richer.
When import these files into my Avid MC project, the files are 'fast import'
into the Avid, meaning they won't further compress.
The Leadtek card doesn't seem to be available in the US yet as far as I can tell.
The Canopus/Grass Valley Firecoder Blu card is available though, just do a search for it on Google. It's a bit pricey at around $500 or so, but I think that's the only one readily available in the US.
The Toshiba laptops that have SpursEngine are only listed on their EU site and not their US site, but hopefully they'll bring them over here soon. They don't use the term SpursEngine though; they just call it a Toshiba quad-core HD processor or a multimedia processor or something like that. See the Qosmio G50 or F50 series laptops. http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/generic/qosmio_eu/
