I've been very impressed and very happy with Smart Renderer 5, for the most part. I've pulled a bunch of different kinds of files into it, and it has managed to smart render my edited versions in most cases without a problem. Furthermore, I've given it a few mix-and-match jobs, where the Master clip had radically different codecs and/or resolution from some of the Rescue clips, and yet, every time, I've gotten a smooth render of the combination of the two or more files; very impressive.
However I've also been experiencing an intermittent problem with Smart Renderer 5. About once every five files or so, Smart Renderer 5 will simply reject the file I'm trying to work with. I'll get the following message: "There is no Smart Render-able clip in the Source. It is necessary to add one clip that can be smart rendered at least."
What do I do about this? What do I have to do to make the clip acceptable to Smart Renderer 5? For the record, the last file where I had this problem was an flv file with the following stats:
Well, I found out what was causing the problem, but I have no idea how to fix it. Does anyone here know what to do about the following problem
I opened up the Clip Properties and discovered that they listed there why Smart Renderer 5 was saying that this clip was not Smart Render-able. The reason listed was low_delay_hrd_flag = 1 (Not Supported).
I have no idea what that means. Does anyone here know what that means? And does anyone here know how to fix that? Thanks for any help!
I am loyal to TMPGEnc but the fact that Adobe Media Encoder encodes at 5 minutes a UHD mp4 file while TMPGEnc I just bought does it at 40 minutes is a shock. Please do something to speed up the process.
My Mastering Works 5 encoding seems to have become very slow recently. Short, 10 minute clips now take 45 minutes and more. The slowness does not seem to be based on the type of file I have inputted, but an MP4 seems to be a major offender.
Can someone enlighten me, please? Have I possibly changed a setting, accidentally, or something?
Because if they had the support for DTS and HD audio, then you would have to pay up to 5 times as much for the Pegasys software.
Why do you think that all the other editor and authoring software who do have the support is so darn expensive?
Besides, their software was not created for some one like you to be working with all the illegally downloaded Blu-ray rips of yours. It is mainly focused on working with home videos that people filmed using their own video cameras, where the typical audio in those are standard Dolby Digital 2.0 or 5.1
If you don't like it, feel free to pay the $500 to $2000 for the software to get your precious DTS and HD audio support. No one is forcing you stick with the software from Pegasys.
is there a pdf manual for tmpgenc authoring works 5, there are so many things that i dont know about it and all i am doing is asking support all the time to help me, a manual would be good, just lookup the index and goto the page of what you need and read a full description and follow the instructions would be great. I have had to purchase pinnacle 20 ultimate as they have a manual and it is step by step
Over a month ago I started having issues with the CUDA aspect with regards to this software and another two TMPGEnc software packages. Initially they were very responsive and had several suggestions which I tried, in the end they had me delete a couple of files from each software package directories and this has essentially permanently disables the CUDA part.
Since then I have heard nothing more and they no longer respond to further requests in this matter.
Are they admitting defeat in that their software is buggy and by ignoring the issue it doesn't exist?
Given the money I have invested in this company over the years, this is very poor and makes me think twice on further support. Why should I support them if they turn their backs on me.
I don't know about your issues, but i have no problems with CUDA in TAW5 or TVMW5
The NVIDIA driver i use is 353.30 for my Asus GeForce GTX650-E-2GD5, where the CUDA was recognized immediately after updating to that driver version.
Have Windows 7 64 bit by the way, never wasted my time on 8, 8.1 or 10
Just so you know, all updated drivers have disabled CUDA for video encoding. Nvidia only uses NVENC now, which is the hardware on their cards. I know your post is 4 months old, but if you're still using CUDA, your hardware is ancient and should be replaced. NVIDIA stopped supporting CUDA for video transcoding 3 years ago. http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=391269
Persen is stuck in a time warp, that is why their stuff still works. Old hardware, with old software and old drivers. All of us with newer hardware are waiting for NVENC support, as they have already offered it in Video Mastering works 6 and PGMX creator, but NOT for Authoring Works 5. Hopefully it's in 6, as VSO software has NVENC available in their bluray conversion software, and it costs considerably less.
If you have the codec, then it might be able to work by selecting a different file reader when you open the file.
You can do that by selecting a different file reader in the file explorer window that appears when importing your file. There is a drop down menu next to the filename text area. Just select one of the "Force Reader blah blah blah" options in the menu.
My mp4 avc videos from Sony SL smartphone have Variable frame rate: for example, frame rate 29.685 fps, minimum frame rate 14.847 fps, maximum frame rate 30.354 fps. When I edit this video in TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 it frame rate is constant 29,723 fps. The resulting video with sound desynchronizes(( I need output video with variable frame rate.
It is my wish to edit videos with variable framerate in TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5. Thank you.
I am trying to export 10 Channel audio from a quicktime and if I encode to 5.1 (channels are labeled correctly in ID) then the audio is phased.
I cannot export separate audio files either as audio has the same issue.
I am trying to convert 23.976 QT to 25 frame MPEG2 with multichannel audio.
The software description implies that it can detect commercial breaks but trying with a mp4 video, that has a number of long (5 second) black parts in it, detects nothing! Am I missing something here? Do I need to buy the "TMPGEnc Movie Plug-in Commercial Candidates Detector" ?
The Commercial Candidates Detector is already integrated into the software I think. I'm not sure it will work on a 5 second black segment though, as I think it looks for segments that are the length of normal commercials (15 seconds, 30 seconds, etc.).
Other video editors that have this facility (VideoRedo for example) search for black frames and I assumed this worked the same way. This is how I'm doing it at the moment, using VideoRedo to find the ad breaks and Smart Renderer 5 to do the editing. I was hoping to be able to do it all in SR5.
Interestingly I've now used SR5 with some films with full advert breaks and it works reasonably well however, it does only seem to detect black or fixed frames on a few seconds long so I don't see why it shouldn't work with the programmes I had tried that had some simple black sequences of 5 seconds or so.
