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??
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. Ohh.....so close!
To create a DVD from an H264 file (HD mp4), the best solution is to re-encode in MPEG2 with Mastering 5, or to use the H264 directly in Authoring Works 6? With this last solution, can I set the bitrate before burning (the film lasts 1h26mn) on a support of 4.7 Gb, or the adjustment is done automatically?
Thank you for your reply.
It is better to process the file directly on Authoring Works 6, the Bitrate will be adjusted automatically but if you want to do it manually please do as follows:
- on Source stage > Track settings > Video tag > Output mode: choose "Encode All Video Streams as Below"
then change at
you can change it, here is more info: http://help.pegasys-inc.com/en/taw6/04080.html
I'm trying to produce a blu-ray from a mkv file with 5.1 audio, but when I add the file the program brings the audio to stereo, what do I need to do for the program to understand the 5.1 original audio. I'm with windows 10 v. 1809.

I really like this program, but want to ask if there is a way to make the pgmx player for android start with a file loaded instead of having to search for it first? I deliver my work to my clients on an android tv stick, and using an app, I can boot the stick directly into de pgmx player, but then my client needs to find the file. So I wanna know if there is a way to start playing the file i choose right away.
You may have bought the wrong product. TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works is a video converter and does not have smart rendering capability. You may have wanted TMPGEnc Authoring Works which is their Blu-ray/DVD authoring software.
Hi, I use Edius 9 Workgroup and I'd like to export from the Edius 9 timeline to H.265 HEVEC. If I buy TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 6, is there iside the plugins for Edius 9? In other words while I install it Edius 9 get the plugins? Thnaks
when authoring a PAL DVD from AVI DV (PAL), I get jerky playback. Am I supposed to override the default settings (re field ordering)?
I understand AVI DV PAL is BFF, while theoretically PAL DVD is TFF; by default TAW5 keeps BFF when authoring a PAL DVD from AVI DV (BFF) and this is confirmed by MediaInfo; normally this should not be a problem, but both VLC and a regular home DVD player exhibit heavy jerky playback playing the DVD, indicating incorrect field ordering.
Note: the AVI DV material was digitized from PAL VHS tapes, and playback of this AVI in VLC is perfect.
Should I override some settings in TAW5 ? Or should I first do a roundtrip to TVMW6 ?
Obviously I want to keep the video interlaced.
After having struggled with field ordering with TAW5 & TVMW6 I found out that by default the AVI DV decoder used on my system are the MATROX codecs; by forcing the DirectShow codec at file import stage, I get more logical results: video is no longer jerky.
However I am still a bit puzzled with the necessity to swap field order when going from AVI DV PAL (BFF) to DVD PAL (TFF, according to specs): TAW5 keeps the source field order (BFF in this case) when using the DVD PAL template: is that 'compliant' ? Will a BFF DVD play correctly on all players in PAL land ?
