Question - TVMW5 BBS - Thumbnails generation is very slow No.71203
matroX  Mail /  )  2019-02-05 01:07:39 ( ID:7duvg/uidw6 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]


When I'm in 'cut' of video file, I suffer from long time to load thumbnails in seek section. When I jump into some point in video, it takes 5-15 seconds for thumbnails to appear. That siginficantly slows down work. Changing time of thumbnails distance doesn't accect. Once I scrolled through video, thumbnails are generated and it's fast. So I would even like to have them generated it production tool or so, so when I start working with clip I already have them.

Are there some factors to change, to make that faster? I have to seek a lot through long file it really affects me.

I see that during seeking, while thumbnails are generated, CPU is loaded signigicantly, 4 cores at 40-50%. Once thumbnails are generated, CPU load goes down. I tried to use GPU/Intel video decoding, but it didn't change anything.

I created RAID0 array from SSDs, to have huge read/write time but it didn't help.

Interesting is that when I jump into somewhere in the file, in preview section I immediately get image, so I assume this can be done almost 'online'. The same I would like to have in thumbnails.

I tried this wit several different input sources and it's the same.

Is there something I can do?

My system is Xeon E5-1620, 16GB RAM, GTX1080.

Have you tried increasing the Thumbnail Cache Size in the preferences? Maybe it will help. It's in Preferences--> Clip Editing.

sthames42  Mail /  )  2019-01-27 00:50:07 ( ID:kmpeuin0kco )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Couldn't read MKV with h265 video in TAW5. Upgraded to TAW6 but reading MKV file extremely slow and sometimes crashes the app.

Installed Shark007 and TAW5 works great but no change in TAW6.

Windows 7 64-bit, i5-3550, 8GB memory, 500GB disk available.

Anyone exp anything like this with TAW6?

If I use the Dolby Analyzer and rescue 5.1 audio, my audio sync is off by a large margin. If there a fix for this or is there a manual adjustment I need to make?

Question - TAW5 BBS - Disc Writing Tool Could Not Be Started No.71187
Spassvogel  2019-01-07 16:56:35 ( ID:ssx/zsqu/ym )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I've been using Authoring works 5 for a few years with no problems. (I purchased a license and it's a legit installation). Today when I tried to write a DVD project I got a popup that the "Disc Writing Tool Could Not Be Started. It is possible the installation is not correct"

Any ideas? I downloaded the install file from my Pegasys account and tried to re-run it, but there is no "repair" option of course. I can only fully remove the program. My next step is to try to remove it and then install again from scratch, but it's annoying that this happens when I'm in the middle of a project that is due in a matter of hours.

Any solutions out there? I can't get support from Pegasys any more because they don't support Authoring Works 5.

Try and use a general contact form from their website and they might help you out even though it's an older product. No guarantees but it's worth a shot.

Question - TAW6 - BluRay and DVD Bitrates which will not require re-encoding in AW6 No.71184
Jim Norman  Mail /  )  2019-01-06 23:02:39 ( ID:ietfdrx5qcc )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I edit using Premiere Pro CC and render out MPEG-2 (mv2 and wave) files for DVD creation and H.264 (m4v and wav) files for BluRay disk creation. I like to use the highest bitrate available that will meet the specs and also fit on the media.
I just started using AW6 and noticed that AW6 appears to re-render the video for a few seconds during scene changes. What average and maximum bitrate should I use to keep AW6 from re-rendering my source files when creating the DVD and BluRay folders? Is there a AW6 setting I should change?

Jim Norman  Mail /  )  2019-01-06 23:07:59 ( ID:ietfdrx5qcc )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Make that m2v as opposed to mv2 files for DVDs. How do you edit one of your own messages?

I purchased a replacement version of TVM6 as I had used the first version the maximum number of times allowed.
They are becoming so untrustworthy now!!!!
I'll now only use TVM5 as the new system is used bt them for theft!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tkrave  2019-01-08 16:22:07 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

What do you mean "maximum number of times allowed"? The software doesn't limit you unless you were using a trial version. You shouldn't need to buy a second license just to keep using the software.

If you bought a new license and your computer still sees the old one, you need to delete or move the old license file. I believe it has a .lic extension if you need to look for it.

Did you buy this direct from the pegasys website? Just sounds weird the way you are describing things.

Question - TAW5 BBS - what settings for simple start page No.71178
BOBC  Mail /  )  2019-01-03 21:21:10 ( ID:jxbzckanggn )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

There are so many variables to choose from, what settings do I choose to get the following to appear on TV when disc inserted as so far after 5 attempts I keep getting first page without my thumbnails and names of tracks beside them.

I want a nice background with thumbnails top to bottom and beside each one the name of the footage or as it is called 'track name'.
Tracks clips chapters etc not sure. I have brought into TMPGenc my .mpg footage, each is about 5 mins long on different subjects.
I have browsed to them all and imported them then used setting to give them their names.
These are tracks I think !
I dont want a page on which you click to then show another page , so I am trying to avoid Title page, I simply want to see my tracks.
I want to be able to click on a track thumbnail and the track plays, When it ends the menu appears with the tracks again.
If there isnt space on the page for all the tracks, then I need a button for page 2.

Just what are the exact steps to get this ?


tkrave  2019-01-11 03:56:51 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Are you making a DVD or a Blu-ray?

Here's some basic instructions.

1.) Put your clips in their own tracks at the Source stage.

2.) In the Menu stage, choose to make a Custom Menu. Select the menu layout that looks the most similar to what you want (you can move things around later). Choose a background you like or use your own.

3.) Choose the "Top menu only" option when it comes up.

4.) For disc-insertion action, choose to view the top menu. For track playback end action, choose to display the top menu.

That's basically it! Once you finish setting up your menu, you can edit each individual page to look how you want it to look. Double-click on a menu page in the page list to open the menu page editor. You can then move the thumbnails and track names around, change the background, etc.

thats what I needed, thanks.
Though I am struggling a bit on custom versus template, I wanted 10 thumbs on my single page and template offers 4 or 5, I found 8 at base of a list, but I must get my head around use of custom a bit more.

what surprises me is lack of english spoken tutorials in youtube on TAW5, and tuts on working with interlaced and also creating menus, the menu options still baffle me a bit.


Question - TAW6 - Convert MKV to play with smartphones No.71176
mkseto  Mail /  )  2019-01-03 08:03:36 ( ID:pzbucy782ow )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Need advice on how to use Authoring Works 6 to convert MKV to play with my smartphone (LG V20, max resolution 2560x1440). I tried to play around with different settings but the converted video didn't play properly (e.g. doesn't fit the screen). Assistance would be much appreciated.

tkrave  2019-01-03 17:56:29 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Authoring Works is not ideal for making smartphone video; it will only output DVD/Blu-ray/AVCHD compliant video, so if your phone cant read those formats, it won't work.

TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works is the software that will probably do what you want.

Question - TAW5 BBS - TVMW6 does not shutdown the host PC ? No.71173

When I choose Shutdown as finishing task, it seems the system goes to sleep instead of shutting down. Is there somethnig I have to check somewhere ? (this is Windows 10 / 1803)

benoitm  2018-12-31 22:48:41 ( ID:yvwgfnhvwrl )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Ooops - I mean TAW5 of course

tkrave  2019-01-11 05:09:16 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Do you have other software running that might be interrupting the shutdown process? I just tried it with my TAW5 and mine shutdown correctly after output. Also on Windows 10.

benoitm  2019-02-19 01:16:21 ( ID:ssxulmeekwr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I need to check this the next time, but in any case, I don't have the problem with TVMW6

benoitm  2019-03-19 17:24:43 ( ID:aacy2tticna )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Update: the same problem exists with TVMW6 on this machine.
The only visible track left by this action is in the Windows System log:

Log Name: System
Source: User32
Date: 18/03/2019 23:46:51
Event ID: 1074
Task Category: None
Level: Information
Keywords: Classic
User: XXXX\Benoit
Computer: XXXX
The process TMPGEncVMW6.exe has initiated the power off of computer XXXX on behalf of user XXXX\Benoit for the following reason: Other (Unplanned)
Reason Code: 0x0
Shutdown Type: power off

the next event in the System log is only 8 seconds later and is an information-level event from 'Time service', but also in the Application log an event 102 from ESENT where 'The database engine (10.00.17134.0000) is starting a new instance (0)'.
This would suggest a reboot instead of a shutdown....although I see no clear event related to a reboot (e.g. events from the kernel; and 8 seconds seems a bit short for a reboot anyway)

Can you Crop the picture and zoom to fill the screen with this software (without black lines) in effects

tkrave  2018-12-21 04:05:52 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

In timeline mode, you can crop and then add a zoom effect.

Or if you just mean crop and resize, it can do that too with filters or timeline editor.

Question - TMSR5 - Smart Rendering Analysis (Too Much Re-encoding) No.71153
ukmark62  Mail /  )  2018-12-16 01:50:45 ( ID:hr1m1ptj2qr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I'm comparing TMPGEnc SR5 with VideoRedo. Specifically, if I import a .ts file (DVB-T2 Freeview HD UK programmes recorded via USB tuner), and then edit out the commercials and any unwanted parts, VideoRedo only re-encodes at the cut points (usually between 10-20 frames for each cut point), then saving the file is very quick. However, with TMPGEnc SR5, the smart render analysis highlights many other places that will be re-encoded, even though those parts have not been changed in any way. The amount of re-encoding undertaken by SR5 varies for each video file I have, but VideoRedo is consistent in that re-encoding is only performed at cut points. Sometimes, SR5 re-encodes up to 20% or more of the file, even though less than 1% of it has been edited.

I really like SR5 but the amount of re-encoding it does compared with VideoRedo is a deal breaker for me. I can't find a setting to alter the amount of re-encoding performed by SR5, but the smart encoding section does appear to be unreliable and inconsistent vs VideoRedo. Any ideas out there??

Do you have the latest version of TMSR5? They are version as of this post.

Did you actually output with TMSR5 or just use the analyzer?

Twyzle  Mail /  )  2019-02-14 08:02:03 ( ID:nfq7o3ltmnr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have to concur with 'ukmark62'on his re-encoding observation. I too was very much surprised to see just how many frames were being re-encoded after a simple unfiltered cut; after all, in the advertising of TMPGEnc SR5, the implication is quite the opposite. In a recent edit of a 2 minute video, (where only 1 cut was being applied), I noticed that 300+ frames were due for re-encoding! The video is a 4K MP4 and runs at 25 fps; so what's that?.....12 seconds of re-encoding in a 2 minute vid...just say it need another cut and maybe another!
One work around I use is to do keyframe cuts only (which sort of defeats the apps purpose), another is to use 2 other freely available programs.
Another thing I've noticed is, if you fade the audio just at the video end - surprisingly, all the audio gets re-encoded.
Although it's not the one-stop quick-grab app I was hoping for; it still does a sturdy job of joining vids (Audio and Video are in synch every time!); it's never crashed and it's GUI is clear and intuitive. close!

rocknight  Mail /  )  2019-06-06 05:32:05 ( ID:awjofucz/2j )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have a 4k video of near 2 hours, and I split it in 3 parts of 23 min., it says it reencode almost all the video! and says it takes around 4 hours, I aborted the process after 45 min.

What can be the mistake?
