Can I use this software on two computers? I have a massive tape collection reaching into the several thousands at the moment I'm ripping tapes with Virtualdub as lossless files and then making DVD's but it's just too time consuming so I'm building another PC from bits I have lying around so I can rip on one and make DVD's on the other it would just be handy if I was able to have it on both for choice, I do also have version 5, Thanks.
You can only use a license on one computer. Using it on more than one might cause a license suspension and you'll have to contact Pegasys to unlock it. If you still have version 5, just use that on one machine and version 6 on the other.
I like TMPGEnc VMW because it's quick and easy to use. There are a few features that keep me from using it 100% of the time though. I do hope that some of these are considered for this new version. I'm currently on VMW 6, if these requests become available in version 7, I may upgrade.
* An option to -Not- re-encode Audio/Video.
There are many times that I would like to just edit Video, but leave Audio 'as is', it would be nice to just basically 'copy' the audio over. Other times I would like to just go from one container to another (ex. AVI to MKV) without re-encoding anything. Copying DTS-HD MA, Dolby TrueHD & Atmos would be nice also (I wouldn't mind if it couldn't re-encode those codecs, but copying would be nice).
* Cropping Presets
This would be really convenient when cropping video. Maybe an option to "Maintain Aspect", or other aspects like 16:9, 4:3, 16:10, custom, etc. Also the option for landscape and portrait for phones, etc.
* Output to the same folder of source file.
I like leaving the encoded video in the same folder as the original file, so that leaves me to browsing to it every time I want to encode something. An option to do this by default to the source folder would be nice.
I would like to add one other feature request:
*The ability to align to overlapping clips by syncing audio.
I'm not a professional, so I don't have cameras that are time synced. Cyberlink has this feature and it works very well. If Tmpgenc added this I would have no more reason to use Cyberlink.
* Another feature request I forgot to add was subtitle support. Sometimes videos will have a bunch of subtitles in them and I really only care about one or two. So removing the rest without re-encoding the audio and video would be nice.
Not re-encoding the audio has been a user request for as long as I can remember. Not really holding out that it will happen.
Lossless video editing is technically possible, but would most likely be limited to MPEG formats, similar to TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer. It's possible that Pegasys simply sees Video Mastering Works as a video converter first and foremost; lossless editing is probably not the focus of the software, in other words. Integrating the feature would, as mentioned, probably be limited to MPEG formats, and that might be too limited considering the huge number of formats that TVMW can handle; users might expect the feature to be available for all of these formats, which would probably be impossible. This would also increase the cost of the software, and I feel like Pegasys is trying to stay as close to $100 as possible. Those are just my theories as to why it isn't implemented.
Subtitles are supported, but if you add or edit subtitles, your video will have to be re-encoded since Video Mastering Works encodes the subtitles into the video itself. It is not like Authoring Works or DVD/Blu-ray authoring software, which uses a separate overlay to display the subtitles.

I just installed a gtx 1050TI on my work computer PC (windows 10 64 bit), downloaded and installed all drivers. The computer and every other program sees the new GPU but TMPG does not see it and wont allow me to look in the preferences to speed up the output in the NVIDIA tab. I have an intel i7-4770 with 16 gig of ram and more free memory than I can shake a stick at. Does anyone know why it wont recognize the new hardware or is there a plug in that I need? Thanks for your help
Go to the Menu editor, click on the Global Menu Settings button. Go to the Motion Menu tab, make sure one of the Motion Menu options is selected, then the option for "Delay Duration for Highlight" should be enabled. This option delays the appearance of the highlights so they can appear after your menu has fully faded-in. Just set the duration to the same duration as the fade-in.
I am looking for a way to change the source video in a project. I created a full dvd layout with a .mpg file and want to apply all settings to a .m2v file of identical length. It is the same video exported a different way from Premiere. Is there a way to do this without having to create the layout again from scratch?
When editing dvb-ts programs the software can obviously see the subtitle sub-picture stream as it can 'burn' this into the output picture when encoding, however, it would be more useful to have this stream as a separate part of an MKV container as it could then be switched on or off as required. If this isn't possible how about a simple option to save the stream to disk for further processing.
I've burn about 15 BD discs (25GB and 50GB) and I noticed that, although the disc has been burnt without problems, in some of the movies I've burnt there are missing frames every minute more or less. I mean, you can see a little jump in the movie. The original file doesn't have anything like that, you can see it perfectly. And of course I've adjust the frame bitrate before burning the disc, I check if the file is 23 fps or 25 fps etc and I adjust it in the program.
I wonder if the error could be that I was using other programs while burning the BD disc and in the output process. I always burn discs at mínimum speed to avoid problems but still there is something that sometimes goes wrong.
This is a question I am also interested in. I am waiting to buy version 7 because I don't want to spend the money twice. But I never saw an official statement of pegasys, beside release notes there ist not much communication from the company.
For version 6 it took roughly have a year for an English/German version (Japan release 19. December 2014, English relelase 14. May 2015.
Japan release of version 7 was 27. November 2018, so I have hope that the western version is coming soon...
The Blu-ray specification allows for authoring mixed media discs. Mixing PAL material on a NTSC disc is allowed and works in Adobe Encore.
In TAW6 i can mix 720p50, 1080i25 and 1080p24 without issues/re-encodings. But, if i create a new project and try to mix 1080i25 and 1080i30 TAW6 will force a re-encode of one of the two files depending on the mode you choosed when you created the project.
If i create a PAL project and import 1080i25 and 1080i30, TAW6 will re-encode the 1080i30 material to 1080i25. If i create a NTSC project and import 1080i25 and 1080i30, TAW6 will re-encode the 1080i25 material to 1080i30.
There are two problems here:
1. The Blu-ray specification do allow 1080i25 and 1080i30 to be authored on the same disc.
2. Converting framerates simply don´t look good, so this bug must be fixed.
The source footage is created by Premiere Pro CC2019 using the TMPGEnc Premiere Pro Plug-in. I can mix the same 1080i25 and 1080i30 footage in Adobe Encore.
I believe the Blu-Ray spec does NOT allow mixed formats within the same TITLE - hence why one of the files is re-encoded and isn't a problem with the software.
To get around this, simply create a second TITLE and add the second file to it. As long as all the files in each title have the same format and resolution, normally no re-encoding will be needed (unless none of the files match the Blu-Ray standard!)
I've done this several times when you want to add a mixed set of files to the same Blu-Ray or DVD. Create as many titles as you need (up to a maximum of 99 on a DVD and, I think, 199 for a Blu-Ray). Creating the menus for multi-title discs is slightly different to adding everything to the same title, but is easy to figure out.
Roger, I should have read your question more closely. It's also difficult to establish what exactly is contained in the Blu-Ray standards!
For HD video, PAL or NTSC should theoretically be irrelevant because of course HD doesn't use either. Because of this I've often wondered why, in TAW, you have to select PAL or NTSC for a blu-ray project, other than if you're adding standard definition content that actually is encoded in PAL or NTSC form. I presume this is a hang over from creating DVD projects, which, as you say, can only be one or the other.
I still don't think you can mix video of different standards, resolution, or framerate etc in the same track without some of the files needing re-encoding. If Blu-Ray supports both PAL and NTSC on the same disc, my guess is this should be allowable at the Track level, but not mixed standards within the same track? (OK, previously I said "Title" - more correctly I should have said "Track").
I am using a separate clips for each Track in TAW. I never add more than one (1) clip to a Track in TAW. Mixing PAL/NTSC footage in one Track would naturally cause issues/re-encodes. The odd thing is that some PAL/NTSC are ok to mix in TAW6 as i wrote in my first post so to me it indicates that it is a bug since some combinations of PAL and NTSC footage in separate Tracks are O.k though the BD standard can be mixed, be it HD and/or SD.
I tried to trick TAW6 by replacing clips in the BDMV\STREAM folder but that don´t work as expected. If i create a PAL project with two Tracks, one Track with PAL clip and one Track with NTSC clip the NTSC clip will be re-encoded to PAL. If i then do a new NTSC project with the NTSC clip and then swap clips in the BDMV\STREAM so i have one PAL clip and one NTSC clip in that folder there is some metadata that force the Blu-ray player to playback the NTSC clip as some kind of PAL. The player report that the NTSC clip is PAL as well.
If i create a BD-disc in Adobe Encore with the same PAL and NTSC clip my Blu-ray player will report correctly, iow PAL for PAL and NTSC for NTSC.
I hope this will be corrected in a future update of TAW. :)
