Request - TAW6 - Subtitles cutting more difficult No.70733
JeanPaulo  Mail /  )  2017-05-22 21:48:11 ( ID:jeltb9zrij. )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I am used to the creation of text (.srt) subtitles from .ts sources, as it is easier to get them as 'default' or 'Optionnal' in the menus.

In V3, there was only .srt support, so there si a great improvment in V5/V6.

However, the subtitles are now 'Cut' as well as the clip and sound. This is fine when you start from a full .ts flow.

But I just tried to repair a clip that had a 1 minute completely corrupt flow in the middle. So the Sound and the subtitles were severely out of sync (30 seconds).

I tried to cut the movie, + presentation, in 4 different clips. The automatic cutting was a nightmare to compute where to cut the .srt files et get them at the right place.

The sound was easier to set in the last clip with the 'audio' options. (the bad one is just garbage...)

An option to 'not change the layout' when reading a .srt file would be very useful, with a straight timeline from 00 instead of whatever WAS there before.

(a second reason is the subject of my next bug report)


JeanPaulo  Mail /  )  2017-05-25 13:54:58 ( ID:jeltb9zrij. )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I'd like to clarify my text:

There are two different situations:

1) The subtitles are included in the source clip, or are added BEFORE any cutting. In that case, it is normal that they are edited along with the audio and pictures.
(that was not possible in V3)

2) The subtitles are added AFTER the editing. That would be the case is they are imported for a full movie, sometimes with a different frequency (24, 25, 30 I/s).

In that case, they should NOT be 'retimed', but the start time should be kept as the 00 for the current clip. Even as there is now a 'shift' function, the value to use may be difficult to find. If there are several cuts (ads) it may be just a headache to do it.



Request - TAW6 - Menu page pictures and background. No.70732
JeanPaulo  Mail /  )  2017-05-22 21:37:22 ( ID:jeltb9zrij. )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Follows my first post:

I frequently use clips from TNT, where the most frequent for a 4/3 (standard) movie is to be inserted into a 16/9 frame, with lateral black bands.

Depending on the subject, I capture some images, and edit them to use as background for the menu pages.

Of course, I can create a picture in a 16/9 format, with or without bands.

But when I do have a good 4/3 image, if I paste it in the menu, I get WHITE bands instead on black. (This is very ugly on the TV)

There does not seems to be a way to change this ?

(I mailed those subjects to Support too)

Thanks for Help



phylbert  2017-05-24 16:51:53 ( ID:9lkhh.bmoo2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hi JeanPaulo,

My usual work-around is to use the 4:3 image as an extra image on the page, rather than making it the actual background, and using a fully black image as the background itself...

1) Select any one of the standard 16:9 backgrounds, and from the "Effects for Background" tab, switch on the "Color and Pattern" option, select a black "Color/Pattern", and slide the "Opacity" control to 100%.

2) Add the 4:3 image you want to use, with the "Adds a picture or video menu item" button in the toolbar on the "Page Edit" tab. Double-click this image to open the "Menu Item Edit" dialog, and make sure that "Keep Aspect Ratio" is selected in the "Display Settings" panel, and the scaling is 100%.
Select "OK" to close the dialog.

3) Back on the menu page, select the 4:3 image, and drag the top and bottom edges out to the borders of the page. You will then have a 4:3 image, but the rest of the page will show the black background :)

Hi, phylbert

Thanks for this good idea.

I tried it, and unless I missed something, I get a good image page, but all the other items for the menu are hidden by the picture. (transparency is not very nice either)

However, I find it simpler (as the capture is a .bmp that I usually convert to .jpg) to just add the necessary black band in the Photo program (like Paint Shop Pro). The only difficulty is to get the right 16/9 extension for the picture.



tkrave  2017-06-07 13:30:27 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

You can change the layer order of menu items just like in Photoshop or other image programs; that way, your image can be below the other items in the page.

In the Menu stage, look at the left side of the screen for the list of menu items. Select your image in the list and then drag and drop it higher up on the list in order to make the image appear underneath other menu items.



Question - TAW6 - Can I really save a menu as a true template No.70731
JeanPaulo  Mail /  )  2017-05-22 21:30:31 ( ID:jeltb9zrij. )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I just upgraded from a recent V5 to V6, and this is still a mystery for me:

How to create a template (starting from existing ones) by using a completed full menu, with pictures and titles.

I tried, and was questionned about files that should stay there...

Any help, please.



Question - TAW6 - Cannot have more than one track on a screen No.70728
pepegot1  Mail /  )  2017-05-21 06:27:47 ( ID:gqxvqgsafth )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I cannot produce a screen that contains several tracks, on thumbnails, that when clicked can go to the underlying chapters. Instead,I get a single screen that I must toggle through to get the next screen containing the next track to click on. This is not good. A single or multiple set of screens containing many tracks should be easy to create and from which clicking yields the underlying chapters. Maybe I am ignorant of the method, if it exists but, it certainly is not obvious as it should be.

Hi.
You don't say what your source is. If it is .TS, I get the same message in different programs, like 'Smart cutter'. It always occurs when there is a bad paquet (transmission error). The only solution is to find where the error is (where the output stopped), and cut some frames just before and as much as necessary.

Most time, the result cut is invisible.

It can probably be the same with other sources. Most players (like VLC) may fail also, or just ignore the incident.



Request - TVMW6 - Intel Quick Sync needs full range option and higher bitrates if possible No.70714
Phil2017  2017-05-16 06:09:15 ( ID:hjhfyrchxt6 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hi

I've got MasteringWorks 5 and looking to upgrade to 6, so currently testing version 6.

With a new PC I'm keen to use Intel Quick Sync (Intel Media SDK), however this is lacking a full range option under Advanced settings, and currently is fixed at 16-235. As I understand it Intel Quick Sync does have options for indicating full range video, could this be implement please?

Also in my tests for 4K footage at level 5.2 the maximum bit rate I could set was around 65Mbps, is this a limitation placed by Intel or could that be increased?

Regards

Phil


Phil2017  2017-09-13 23:40:30 ( ID:hjhfyrchxt6 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hi

Excellent to see full range options are now support on Intel Quick Sync encoding on the latest version.

When encoding with Intel Quick Sync, is it still restricted to a maximum of 65Mbps bit rate? Unfortunately having used the previous version 6 trial which has long since expired, I can't use the new version in trial mode anymore to check myself.

Regards

Phil




Question - TAW6 - Important Missing Features in TAW6 No.70710
Tom Lewandowski  Mail /  )  2017-05-12 07:09:55 ( ID:.t38jdbdulr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

After familiarizing myself with the TAW6 ‘demo’, I’m unable to find two key features, which were missing in v5, and seem to also be missing in v6. Though, I haven’t ruled out my inability to locate these two features and I thought I’d check to see if anyone could help me locate them:

1. The ability to Copy and Paste USER DEFINED custom menu items, from one menu, to another. The “Copy” menu layout appears to still be limited to program item copy; not user images and text additions that have been added to a menu.

2. The ability to RETURN TO TRACK MENU as an end function after playing a clip (chapter) in BD Authoring mode.

After installing the TAW6 Demo, TAW5 would no longer load and errors with an “AppHang81" message. This policy of being allowed to use only ONE version of software you've already paid for is ludicrous! It's like owning two cars and only being able to drive one or the other. In any event, simply checking out this v6 DEMO requires a reinstall of previous versions of TAW, should you decide to not want TAW 6.

I haven’t noticed a significant difference, if any, in speed; the 32-bit TAW5 performed very quickly on my Intel i7/16 GB RAM/8GB VRAM system with Intel SDK encoding. Editing has always seemed to function quite well.

The new "Win10" look is more difficult for someone, like me (who has poor vision), to quickly locate things. Since I do a lot of multiple audio and subtitle tracks editing, I find the new "extra" menus to do these things to be a hassle.


phylbert  2017-05-13 18:36:54 ( ID:9lkhh.bmoo2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hi Tom, with regard to (1) above, do you simply mean copying and pasting free-form text and images you've created yourself?
I had no problem using Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V to copy and paste between multiple pages of the same menu. The operations are also available on the pop-up menu when you right-click the mouse on a menu page, as "Copy User Added Item" and "Paste User Added Item".
I then opened a different project, and again had no problem pasting the same items into it. They even get pasted in the same position on the page, which is nice.

My install of TAW5 (5.2.6.65) still works just fine after installing the TAW6 demo. I've even had both open at once.

Agree with you about speed; I haven't seen a noticeable difference, though admittedly I'm running an 8-core beast of a machine, and my K-Lite codec pack offloads the decoding work to the GPU, whether TAW6 requests it or not.
The CPU usage is a fair bit lower, so I guess machines with lower specs might see performance improvements.


Tom Lewandowski  Mail / Home )  2017-05-19 16:39:46 ( ID:.t38jdbdulr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Thanks, Phylbert -- I'll search again for "copy user added item". I don't know how I've missed it; I've right-clicked everywhere I could think of, trying to find this option -- and I didn't think of simply using CTRL-C/V.

I wonder if by not choosing the default install locations for TAW 5/6 may have something to do with why the v6 demo wiped out my v5 install. A file from TAW5 was missing/deleted after installing the TAW6 demo. The retail version of TAW6 does allow for both version to run, simultaneously, for an additional $20.00.

Most of my BD authoring consists of episodic compilations -- television series, and so forth. I haven't been able to find a way to create menus that contain multiple clips (episodes), that allow the option to return to the track menu after a clip plays. To compensate, I've been using TAW for track and clip editing, and other software, which DOES allow return-to-menu after a clip plays, to master BD's.


phylbert  2017-05-24 18:50:09 ( ID:9lkhh.bmoo2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

That's odd.... I routinely create multi-episode DVDs and BDs of my favourite TV shows, and I usually hide the "Play All" button in favour of a return-to-menu design.

If you're creating the menu from scratch, the menu wizard has the options to select both what happens when you insert the disc, and what happens when a track finishes. I've always set both to "Return to Top Menu", and it's always worked for me.

In the left panel on the "Menu Screen", there's also a "Blu-ray Global Settings" button that lets you set the actions on disc insertion, track end, and menu button during playback. You can use these to play with an existing menu without using the wizard to start over.


Tom Lewandowski  Mail /  )  2017-05-29 00:21:37 ( ID:.t38jdbdulr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have no problems with END TRACK ACTIONS -- it's the END CLIP ACTION I want to control. The DVD Authoring tools include an END CLIP ACTION, but that's not available with BD Authoring tools.

If I want to put each episode on a separate Track, that wouldn't be a problem. But I would like a TOP menu (such as a MAIN MENU), which then leads to separate sub-menus for, 1. EPISODES, 2. FEATURES, 3. SUBTITLES. Like the structure of most commercial DVD's. I can do this with authoring software like, NERO VIDEO. What I've been doing is using TAW to combine multiple audio and subtitle streams to my videos and create a similar BD structure as I use in NERO VIDEO. After I've created the BD files in both TAW and NERO, I copy the STREAM, PLAYLIST, META/DL, and CLIPINF directories from the TAW BD layout, to the NERO BD layout.

Everything works fine, except there's no on-disc subtitle and audio language support (and must be selected from the remote control.) TAW has much nicer and expanded options than NERO, so I'd rather simply use TAW for everything...but can't find a way to duplicate END OF CLIP (Episode) functions.

Using TAW and creating separate tracks for each episode requires a separate subtitle, audio and CLIP page for each episode, instead of a single menu to change audio and;or subtitles for all clips at once....like a DVD layout.


Tom Lewandowski  Mail /  )  2017-06-02 17:16:58 ( ID:zi2r14rk.pf )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I now see how it's possible to highlight all user-added items on a Track Page layout, and copy/paste them to another Track Page. Why this isn't part of the existing "copy track page layout to another page" feature is beyond me.

In any event, it makes creating eposodic BD's somewhat easier. I've been working on creating COMMUNITY TV show BD's, with 8 episodes per disc. Each episode contains two audio tracks and two subtitle tracks, therefore, eight tracks are needed for just the episodes. Unfortunately, this 'copy layout items' feature only works on track pages, not subtitle or audio pages; it's still a pain in the butt to duplicate each of the 8 customizable subtitle/audio pages from scratch. So, I've decided to continue creating the layout as I did with TAW5; placing all eight episodes on one track.

I haven't tried using one of the dynamic frame options yet, which used to stop the background music from playing when another page item is selected.

The TEXT editing options have improved drastically! The nomenclature for some of the text styles is a bit strange, but I have to keep reminding myself that TAW isn't an Adobe product. The advanced highlighting feature is also very nice.

Question - TVMW5 BBS - how to encode part of the timeline No.70701
avidesh  2017-05-04 01:15:12 ( ID:ciousxmesrk )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello, I have edited a long sequence of videos in timeline mode. However I would like to generate multiple videos from the single timeline instead of one. How can I do that?


tkrave  2017-05-19 13:13:17 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I usually make a duplicate layer, then edit any changes/differences I want. Then, I enter "Single mode" to select the layer I want to output (click the "S" button for the layer), then output.

To duplicate your layer, you'll have to select all the clips in the layer, make a new layer, then paste the clips into the new layer.



Question - TAW5 BBS - Converting .MKV files with subtitles No.70700
Tazrulez  2017-05-02 01:23:25 ( ID:qu9dvsfvvjh )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have some .MKV files with subtitles, either .ssa or .ass subtitles, and it is not recognizing the subtitles. If I demux the subtitle and convert it to .srt it loses all formatting that the original had, and i have over 400 .mkv files. Is there a way I can keep the .ssa or .ass formatting and still import the .mkv files to TAW5?


Kuno  2017-05-07 16:08:05 ( ID:hukdtzb7abf )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

No there is not. If you want to keep the formatting I would strongly suggest using VSO ConvertXtoHD. They do have a trial available and it uses NVENC so your encodes will use NVENC hardware if you have a newer NVIDIA card. Your other option is to hardsub everything, through handbrake or mediacoder or another software package and then bring it in to author.

Subtitle support really blows.


Persen  2017-06-12 01:08:50 ( ID:6tr/46zxmom )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

For the future of others, then you can try to take a peak at Subtitle Edit.
It can extract and convert various types of subtitles, which also incl. DVB subtitles to various other subtitle formats.
Just remember to download the required language packs for both the decoder and encoder after having installed Subtitle Edit.
