I have an AVI file that plays fine - but when loaded to the editor displays with the vertical hold "off" - multiple versions of display are squished and at a diagonal. Of course the output is the same.
A picture of this can be sent if needed, or the output of Gspot. How can this be corrected?
I think We all the customers desire AC3 multichannel output. It's a big incongruity that a commercial video editting app. (with such a power and capacity of quality and conversion between the most state-of-the-art media formats) doesn't support the BASIC thing that multichannel is nowadays.
Waiting too long now....
Even the most basic converters out there support this , even nero for the last god knows how many years , it is a bout time we can convert with 5.1 ac or dolby digital as this is not exactly a cheap piece of software!
Not sure if you are referencing AC3out put in an M4V h.264, but I am looking for the same thing. Since the Apple TV can now accept AC3 passthrough it would be nice if I could use this software to create an M4V file and keep the AC3 as the second audio track. You still have to keep a PCM track as the first track but adding AC3 would be GREAT.
The software is great, but the fact that is not capable of outputting multichannel 5.1 dolby digital is too bad.
From the user guide, it seems that this should work as there is the option to select dolby digital multichannel in the MPEG settings, however this option is not available when recoding to a different format from the source.
I have a strange bug. When I try to convert 23.976 fps matroska files from to any other format, such mp4 or mpg at original fps (23.976), I get files that play approx. at 20 or 18 fps, in spite of every info applications report 23.976. The problem lasts about 8-9 minutes, and then the files play little by little the correct fps. I tried Windows Vista and XP, with different codec packs and different machines, and it's always the same since TMPGEncXpress last or the previous update.
Any solution or answer to my problem? If it's a bug, please Fix it!!! :)
I also had the same problem and I do not know, whwter it is a bug or not. For myself the following workaround solved the problem: Set the input frame rate to 24fps instead of 23.976. Please let me know, if in you case also worked.
I agree with this comment totally. GPU encoding on my cheesy 8600GTX was quite fast. I bought TMPGEnc 4.0 with the notion that it would encode in CUDA and cut down on some of my long encoding times. It is fast in some circumstances, but so far, I am still wishing that more processing took place in the GPU. - I also agree that Badaboom's quality sucks.
I have had problems getting your excellent program to encode PAL 720x352 Half D-1 (4-6hrs) recorded DVD-R+R the same as it does 720x576 Full D-1 kepping the letterbox format. The Xpress program will read all DVD but handles them differently when its time to Encode.
I know the bitrates are lower for Half D-1 typically 2,800 Mbps but can we have a standard filter that will resize and keep the letterbox format as my Philips DVDR 3380 records in both D-1 formats
I have found this workaround and saved as a filter is there another way?
1: Resize full (center) using lanscos3 to 720x432 (75% of 576)
2: Picture Crop tick left and right 8 pixels to give 704x576
3: Select PAL 720x576 DVD Video as you normally would for Full D-1 with 2,130 kb/s this means you can get about four 40 mins TV shows on one DVD with your own custom menu. Minus all those annoying adverts.
I'm using a Sony Vaio Z Laptop with a GeForce 9300M GS running XP doing a lot of video editing work with TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress. I bought this machine because of its small size and because its takes advantage of the GeForce 9300M GS and CUDA Technology for faster renders.
However, the latest version of TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress shows a grayed out area on the Preferences tab under options when i try to activate CUDA.
I confirmed with Nvidia that for sure the GeForce 9300M GS supports CUDA and I tried both Sony official Nvidia drivers for the Z (which include the CUDA.dll files) and also the latest Official Nvidia Drivers with CUDA support.
No luck with any drivers. I was under the assumption only the GeForce8800 GTX/GTS video card using the G80 core were not supported! :( As a $100 piece of software with basically no support, Im extremelly upset.
When I convert DVD-Video to MPEG-4 AVC format (Main profile, Level 4, 720x480, Display 16:9, 29.97fps, 2-pass CBR, 4500 kbps, motion search 256, NTSC), the video has a bit of stuttering (the original is fine and smooth with no stuttering at all). It is quite small, but definitely present, especially when the camera pans. The resulting video actually hurts my eyes and gives me a headache over a period of time!
Wondering if I can tweak any conversion setting to make the video stutter-free, or reduce it significantly?!
Try again but this time shut off antivirus and firewall, disconnect from Internet to be safe, and check your processes for any antispyware programs that may interfere with the transcoding. I stop processes like Windows Update checker, Java, and some HP stuff for my scanner.
Another thing, it helps if you don't use your computer when it's converting.
I encoded 720x480p MP4 files and it works in my psp2000,but I found two problem,
first,the source file is 25 fps,then change to 23.976fps,when it done,it is pausal when playing,when i change fps 25 or higher,then it's perfect.
the second,the sound part is aac 192k,but it display 128k in my psp,I try to change
160k or 92k,but it's still display 128k,i play on my computer it display the ture number.why?
I guess the psp can't handle 720x480p video with a framerate lower than 25 fps? I'm not completely familiar with the limitations of 480p video on the psp, but if you found that 25 fps or higher works, then you should use those settings.
As for the AAC 192k issue, I'd be inclined to believe the computer over the psp. Maybe the psp has problems reading the header file and obtaining the correct file data.
A psp forum might be a better place to get answers for these questions.
Well, I do identical encodes on a daily basis so my encoding settings are finely tuned. This would be very valuable doing a large amount of encoding; I.E. I have 400 GBs to encode on a 500 GB hard drive.
720x480 video is overkill for the PSP as there are only 480 pixels on the horizontal and 272 pixels on the vertical of the PSP's screen. Any video that has a resolution greater than 480x272 WILL NOT WORK on your PSP.
Therefore, if you are transcoding widescreen video, I suggest you set the resolution to 480x272, and if you are transcoding 4:3 video I suggest you set the resolution to 368x272. In both instances you want AT LEAST 384kbps bitrate, if not 512kbps for movies where quality is of greater importance.
These are the settings I use for Widescreen video and square video respectively:
