Question - TVMW6 - Any way to modify just a portion of a a/v file? No.70301
Amby  Mail /  )  2016-04-23 07:14:05 ( ID:o/rxnnzb0uf )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have come across a puzzle that my previous experience with Mastering Works hadn't prepared me for, and I'd appreciate some guidance, please.

The specific puzzle is that I can't figure out how (or even it is possible at all) to modify the audio of just a PORTION of a video file (usually, but perhaps not always, just to increase or decrease the volume of the audio).

But in a larger sense, I also don't know a good way of performing any editing of just a portion of a video in general. I assume I would have to use Timeline Mode, but I find that the help file on that mode is rather confusing.

The only thing that comes to mind is to cut/create the original file into separate video files, edit the sub-file that contains just the portion that I want to edit, then join them all back together, which is awfully brute-force and inelegant.

I guess my idea would require the ability to "select" just the portion I want to change and then apply an audio or video filter.

Is this possible in Video Mastering Works 6? If so, please explain how I can do this.

Thanks!

You will have to simply split the file within MW6, I can't think of another way. No need to cut the original then manually join - the Split function does this automatically without having to touch the original file(s).



Question - TVMW5 BBS - Encoding MKV from a DVD No.70298
kalemvar  2016-04-16 04:53:20 ( ID:8ov7xsjuqhk )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I've TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5 since sometime now and I can't figured it out how to proper encode MKV with good ratio.

I want to encode a dvd (no commercial) to MKV, the source is 1:78:1 16/9 (which is fullscreen on my TV). I've tried lot of different setting but the result is always the same, I've 2 tiny little bars at top/bottom of my MKV file (on VCL and on my TV).

My settings are:

Size : 720x480
Aspect Ratio : Displey 16:9

I've tried: filter resize: Full Screen (no margin) = same result

What can I do ?


Persen  Mail /  )  2016-04-18 22:29:44 ( ID:6tr/46zxmom )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I no offense to Video Mastering Works, then i have never used it for converting DVD's.
Instead i use DVDFab 9, where i choose the copy option (muxing) in its DVD ripper, so that image and audio gets copied to a MKV container completely untouched.



Bug report - TVMW6 - Cannot start VMW6 after installation. No.70297
Alpa1  2016-04-12 08:59:34 ( ID:aitjvxtmffr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I've used Pegasys products for a long time and never had a real problem in installing the software. Today I downloaded and installed VMW6 and all I get is an error message stating that I don't have the required minimum video resolution of 1280x768, so it will not start. My screen resolution is 1920x1080, the system has 8GB of memory, and a 4.2 gig AMD processor; all greater than the software requires. I've written to Pegasys and am waiting for a reply but meanwhile would like to know if anyone else has run into this problem. I'm currently running VMW5 and and have used version 4 (long ago) and never have run into this situation.....

HagbardCeline  Mail /  )  2016-04-08 12:42:50 ( ID:4c.rsdoj8lf )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]


I have a project that needs to be exported both as a blu-ray and a regular DVD. In the main menu you can "open with conversion" an existing project. I opened the DVD project with conversion to Blu-Ray, however the menu is still set to be SD 16:9. Is there any way to manually change the menu to HD 16:9? The only place I remember that setting is in the menu wizard, and it would wipe out the 20 pages of menus I've already built.



Question - TVMW5 BBS - 1080p 25fps to 1080p NTSC No.70284
digitalfreaknyc  Mail /  )  2016-03-30 06:05:38 ( ID:oi739vo9ncn )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Here's a question about rendering a file that starts at, effectively, 25fps (PAL) 1080p to NTSC. What's the best way to present a smooth looking final product?


Persen  Mail /  )  2016-03-31 21:51:23 ( ID:6tr/46zxmom )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

There is no PAL or NTSC if the source is Blu-ray, also not if the source is HDTV.
So converting it should not be necessary if you want to watch it on your TV, it will play just fine.



Question - TAW5 BBS - NVENC support when? Have we been abandoned? No.70277
Kuno  Mail / Home )  2016-03-25 08:49:14 ( ID:hukdtzb7abf )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Any idea if and when the team is going to give us nvenc support? It's really frustrating that video mastering works has it, and authoring works does not. It means if we want to use nvenc, we are forced to buy another product.

Come on Pegasys, give us nvenc.


Persen  Mail /  )  2016-03-28 08:52:07 ( ID:6tr/46zxmom )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

We? Most i believe use CUDA, because that is standard in many of the latest NVIDIA drivers for your cards, which i also think is just fine by the majority, because both TVMW5 and TAW5 supports CUDA.

But for you, then you most likely have to wait for a couple of years more for NVENC support in Authoring Works, because that will most likely not happen before version 6 gets released, when there are way more than only two UHD supporting Blu-ray players on the market.


HagbardCeline  2016-04-08 12:44:21 ( ID:4c.rsdoj8lf )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]


Personlly, I'd like OpenCL support (which most Radeon cards utilize). I edit with Vegas, which uses OpenCL, so I went with a Radeon based card for that reason. It was a bit disappointing that Authoring Works only utilizes the Nvidia standard.

Nvidia DROPPED Cuda Support almost 2 years ago in driver 340.52. All Maxwell and newer cards use NVENC, 100% hardware based encoding for x264 and x265.

If you want this program to be taken seriously, Pegasys really needs to get their act together and support NVENC and OpenCL. Cuda is ancient and looks like crap compared to NVENC.


Persen  Mail /  )  2016-05-29 20:00:30 ( ID:6tr/46zxmom )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

You are telling bullshit. I use driver version 353.30 and have CUDA support in both TAW5 and TVMW5.


Kuno  2016-10-24 14:38:04 ( ID:ebklpg3sl32 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I am not telling bullshit you ignorant person. CUDA has been stopped by NVIDIA, and is no longer supported on newer cards that have NVENC capabilities. They also removed it form their drivers. If you have a Maxwell or newer card, you can not use CUDA, and must use NVENC.

First generation Maxwell
Graphics Cards
GeForce GTX 750Ti
GeForce GTX 750
Integrated Notebook GPUs
GeForce GTX 960M
GeForce GTX 950M
Second generation Maxwell
Graphics Cards
GeForce GTX TITAN X
GeForce GTX 980
GeForce GTX 980Ti
GeForce GTX 970
GeForce GTX 960
Integrated Notebook GPUs
GeForce GTX 980M
GeForce GTX 970M
GeForce GTX 965M

These cards are no longer supported by CUDA and only work with NVENC for encoding. They might work with CUDA filters, but that is it.

If you actually knew something about computers, you would know this.



Question - TVMW6 - Video Judder No.70262
bixbe68  Mail /  )  2016-03-18 22:51:04 ( ID:mrqmb6emifr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I cannot make smooth videos with this latest firmware. I have the right pc with GTX970, 32Gb RAM and 6core processor. My original HEVC 2160p 25fps clips play smoothly in all players (WMP, MPC-HC etc.) So do my HEVC videos from another NLE (which has other problems). I have tried many different settings. H265 to x264, H265 to NVENC AVC or NVENC HEVC. Variable bitrate as high as my camera NX1. All videos come out choppy, stroboscopic. All I want is to join my clips and make it smooth. You can watch it on my YouTube channel Anders Bixbe 160313 and 160316. Is there an easy solution to this? The free space on my SSD Windows 10 C disc is 150Gb..



Question - TVMW5 BBS - conversion to MOV (DNxHD) still problematic after all these years No.70261
benoitm  2016-03-17 22:55:12 ( ID:whrqtudrlcm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

in 5.5.3.108, I still have problems converting AVCHD to DNxHD (QuickTime):

If I specify 709 color levels in the Avid DNxHD codec settings, I get levels expanded, producing blacks well below 16 and whites expanded from 235 to 255 (de facto causing clipping of any existing superwhites in the source)

If I specify RGB color levels instead, I get apparently correct levels, but there is hard clipping of any existing superwhites at 235 (losing whatever useful info is present there)

Anyone to confirm ?
Any workaround ?




Question - TAW5 BBS - best dvd settings No.70253
BONLEV  Mail /  )  2016-03-11 21:55:22 ( ID:kstvbk0ogig )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I filmed and edited a carnival here. It's after editing 217minutes long.
I use DVD9 (double layer)

In settings I use 2pass encoding but do I set for example 8000 kbits for average video and hope that TAW5 is trying to reach that setting with the 2pass encoding? I know that this program is a very good encoder for minimal loss of quality.

Or use a online bitrate calculator which gaves me about 4750 kbits for average

Someone experience with this?


Persen  Mail /  )  2016-03-15 20:59:14 ( ID:6tr/46zxmom )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

If you enter a minimum and maximum bitrate under Settings for the track in Source, that will also then be the output bitrate values, that will be forced on the video.

But the 4750 Kbps average you found, is pretty much the normal bitrate for standard DVD quality.
Rarely DVD releases from the various movie studios goes above this.


BONLEV  2016-03-16 19:25:23 ( ID:kstvbk0ogig )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

@ Persen: thank you for the reply!

I changed the average bitrate till it didn't exceed the 8,5Gig bar into red.
4850 was in this case the average bitrate to stay away from red.

I can't change the minimum bitrate, only the maximum and took 8000.
only changing the average bitrate affects the bar below for calculating.

If I had put for example 7000 bitrate for average TAW5 would outputted the same dvd quality like my 4850 average now? If the answer is no than I always will follow my method above.

1 extra question. I had to make blu ray and dvd from this project. First I made the blu ray project and rendered it. (took more than 12 hours! 2VBR and average bitrate of 13500 I thought)

Then I openend TAW5 "open with conversion" and I choose DVD (pal in my case)
I changed the bitrate to 4850 and rendered it and burnt it. But this took again more than 5 hours! why?

I saw after "open with conversion" the bitrates where 9800 or something for maximum and average after "open with conversion".

I remember in the past I had a conversion finished in less than 30 minutes.
So what I'm doing wrong or is my workflow not good?

I have a very fast intel i7 pc with lots of ram. I make/export my 50P files in sony vegas. Than drag them into TAW5.


Persen  Mail /  )  2016-03-21 19:59:31 ( ID:6tr/46zxmom )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

When wanting to set a minimum bitrate, you have to choose Re-incode all as bellow, works for me every time on both DVD and Blu-ray projects when i do this.

The huge difference in output time that can be experienced depends on, if smart rendering is possible or not of the video files, where then everything then is just muxed (copied untouched). My own personal experience with the video files i have worked with, is that smart rendering for me was only possible with DVD-MPEG and VOB files for DVD projects and M2TS files for Blu-ray projects.

12 hours for creating a Blu-ray sounds normal to me, that's also the time it takes for me, when working with movies that was recorded from HDTV as TS files, which i want to turn in to Blu-ray's with a menu.
But is rare that i do this, because i normally only do such projects with Christmas movies in 1080i, where i then have 3 movies on each disc.



Question - TVMW6 - GUI - anyway to lighten the interface No.70250

Is there anyway to lighten the GUI color on TMPGenc6 - like the GUI on TMPGenc5. Cannot find anything in the preferences but maybe there is a registry setting?

Any input appreciated



Question - TAW5 BBS - bdmt_eng,xml Errors No.70236
TomLewandowski  Mail / Home )  2016-02-25 11:46:11 ( ID:.t38jdbdulr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

TAW5 creates bdmt_eng.xml files for your blu-ray's BDMV/META/DL subdirectory, if you enable it to do so. However, it writes the files, incorrectly. I have SONY BD players and they support thumbnails and disc titles, but TAW5's bdmt_eng.xml file has to have the xml corrected for this to function.

The title is displayed with the xml tag <di:name>PLACE TITLE HERE</di:name>, but TAW5 doesn't include the "di:" portion of the tag, therefore, making it useless. So, I simply add it using Windows Notepad, in UTF8 format.

It also doesn't write the correct path to the thumbnails. I haven't been able to find the proper code for this, though. It appears to write the location correctly, but perhaps using the incorrect code.

This is what it writes:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><disclib xmlns="urn:BDA:bdmv;disclib"><di:discinfo xmlns:di="urn:BDA:bdmv;discinfo">
<di:title><name>AGENT CARTER • SEASON 1 [DISC 1]</name></di:title><di:description><di:thumbnail href="thumbnail_416x240.jpg" /><di:thumbnail href="thumbnail_640x360.jpg" /></di:description></di:discinfo></disclib>

The two images are in the same subdirectory as the xml file, so this appears to be correct. However, every other example of code I've seen adds:

...href="./thumbnail....

I don't know xml, but the "./" seems to point to the same subdirectory as the xml file, anyway. Does anyone have any thoughts on things I might try to get the thumbnail code properly written? The title works find, and I've tried several different ways to write the path to the thumbnails. I've even put them in the root, BDMB, and META directories, as well as the DL directory. Notta. I can get thumbnails with commercial discs that reference an online location, but not when the thumbs are on the actual disc...at least not with the path that TAW5 writes.

Anyone?




Tom Lewandowski  Mail / Home )  2016-08-14 19:10:49 ( ID:.t38jdbdulr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Thanks you TMPEnc Team for correcting the '<di:name>' switch in TAW Authoring Works 5's bdmt_eng.xml file.

My SONY BD plays still won't display the images I include, like they do with commercial BD discs. Since I know my players DO display thumbnails when the image sources are pointed to online sources, there has to be something in the syntax of the image location created by TAW5 that is incorrect.

I *ALWAYS* want my output to go to the same folder as the input files but TMPGEnc always defaults to the last folder I outputted to. Is there a way to stop that behaviour and have it default to the source file folder instead?

Check on Options > Preferences > Work folders >

there you can set your default output folder.
cheers
