I have just purchased the Leadtek SpursEngine PCI-E Card, the TMPGE SpursEngine Plug-In, and the new MovieStyle software. I already owned TMPGExpress 4.0.
TMPGExpress 4.o seems to work fine with no driver crashes.
As soon as I begin a specific action in MovieStyle, the driver crashes, the Windows Device Manager dismounts the Leadtek card, and I begin to get error messages from both MovieStyle and TMPGExpress 4.0 regarding the Spurs hardware not being available.
Only when I reboot does the problem go away, but it then consistently re-appears every time I enter MovieStyle .vob import in the Source Wizard.
I think my problem was solved with some excellent help from Olivier from TMPGE Customer Support.
I was advised to copy the following files from my correctly-working TMPGExpress 4.0 folder (in C:\Program Files) to the MovieStyle Folder, replacing the files of the same name in the MovieStyle Folder.
Voila' !!!!! The problem went away.
I assume my installer screwed up the original installation somehow or that one or more of these files was defective. The copy and paste fixed my problem!!
I am posting this here so others who may have the same problem in the future will be spared a lot of screwing around and rebooting trying to get their installation to work.
At the Start stage, open a saved project and open the project file in question.
An error message will appear for each source file it can't find. Each error message has a "Browse.." button that you can click to select the new path for the source file. Do that for each source file and you'll be good to go!
Looks like the "Browse.." button doesn't show up for .vob files. You'll have to copy the .vob file to the directory the project thinks it should be in.
To find out where to put the file, use the "Project file check tool". From the start stage, click on the "Advanced Tools" button, then choose "Project file check tool". Load your project file and it will show a list of the file used in the project and where they should be located on your computer.
I use AW4 to make Blu-ray videos. The MPEG-2 I am importing into AW4 is 23 GB. The Blu-ray capacity is 25 GB. Why does my clip in AW4 always show FR-full render, meaning when I go to burn the disk, AW4 re-encodes my entire MPEG-2 which takes 7 hours? I want my clip to indicate SR-Smart render.
I love the ability to add text based subtitles with the subtitle filter. I would be great if I could also add graphic file based subtitles too. Some languages (Farsi, Arabic, Hindi) have character sets that keep their formating better when saved as graphic files. This would be helpful for logos and titles created in photo editing software too.
Hi. I'm using Win XP to "Cut-edit" clips in a project file that was save in Windows 7. Unfortunately I got this error message on some clips, and I'm unable to edit them. How to solve this issue? Please advise. Thank you.
Error message: "An error occurred while structuring the clip edit window. Refer to the details below. Invalid bitmap image"
Can anyone tell me the steps necessary to install my Canopus codecs into TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress? I'm pretty sure the Codecs are on my computer(since I edit with Canopus Edius) but I don't know how to add them to the codec list in TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress. Thanks for your help!
I have a little problem with the program and it's that i don't know how to make the playback goes to the top menu after it plays de header track
p.d. i tried with the menu wizard, and the result still the same!, also try with the autoring 3 and there was no big diference
i'm thinking that is a trouble with the program itself,
plis someone can help me?? i will really apreciate it
Some programs MUST be installed on a computer which has Internet capabilities. Some others can get a License # from the company using another computer and then install the program on their editing computer (which has NO internet capabilities.
So - can TMPG Xpress be installed and a license number applied on an editing computer that has NO internet capabilities?
Yes and no. Yes, you can install it on a computer with no internet, but you will need to connect to the internet every time it needs to validate the license, which it does periodically. It might be once a month, or once every two weeks...I can't really tell what the pattern is. Once it validates, you can disconnect and still use the program.
Im curious to know if anyone else has experienced this issue, and more importantly, if there is a fix for this glitch.
My signal runs from Mini DV to Sony MC 10 DVD burner.
Once I finalaize that disc and and run it through the softwre to create an mpeg 1, I find there are dropouts of audio. They are not long, by any means, just split second drops, but very noticeable.
The mini dv and dvd play fine on their own with no issues.
I've tried three different kinds of discs, but no success.
I jotted down some times when this occured during the playback of one of the the mpeg 1 files; you can see it doesnt appear to be completely random, but still, I have no clue what the problem may be.
