Contemplating purchase - using the Trial version. When outputting to DVD, getting a slight vertical stretch (with resultant crop) to my 16x9 image. I've tried outputting using "Square Pixels" setting as well as "16x9". Same result with both. Searched around but not finding anything on this for Works 5. Thoughts?
I upgraded to Windows 8 32 bit from Windows 7 64 bit and now when I try to convert a movie it starts the conversion process and runs for about 20 seconds and stops. Message reads "TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5 has stopped working" then when I click on "check for a solution... it returns message "the connection with Video Mastering Works 5 has been severed.
It was working fine with Windows 7!
Your Windows 8 is in 32-bit or also in 64-bit?
Probably you need to install the compatible codecs or codec pack with your OS.
Also check their version is for 63-bit or 32-bit depending on your OS version.
Or uninstall all those codecs, reboot your PC and try again.
What is your source file format?
if for ex. is an AVI file
When there are issues with AVI format, its because of codecs used,
TMPGEnc software uses DirectShow codecs installed in your PC for reading
your .avi file so possibly the codec needed it is not selected or its
incorrect or not the suitable.
Or codecs used for reading/encoding your file are wrong, weird,
corrupted, incompatible or even broken.
Please try this:
- Go to....Options > Preferences > File input plug-in >
uncheck the AVI file reader and try in a new project, also
try by uncheck all except the DirectShow file reader
import your source file and try again.
- Go to... Options > Preferences > File input plug-in
then uncheck the Media Foundation file reader only.
- import your source file and check.
Please install this as suggestion and try again.
When I edit a ts file from a HD TV channel and convert it to vob files, the output is very slow. I am aware that there is more to process with HD TV than with non-HD TV, but it takes round about two hours to output DVD files from a one hour HD TV recording. In contrast it takes just a few minutes for non-HD TV recordings to process.
Is this normal, or have I failed to understand something?
When using the latest version (18.104.22.168) outputting to an MP4 file with the format settings of 'Stream Format' set to 'H.264/AVC' and 'Video Encoder' set to 'NVENC', there are no errors and the file seems to encode properly. The problem occurs when I try to play back the file in any media player (Windows Media Player, MPC-HC, VLC, etc.) The file will start to play fine but if you try to seek further in the timeline the cpu will go to 100% and stay there for about 5-10 seconds then actually seek to that spot and resume playback. Other times when I try to seek the media player will hang and basically lock up. The media player does not go to 'Not Responding' status but the video will stop playing. If I use the 'x264' encoder instead of 'NVENC' this problem does not occur but it does take much longer to encode the file and uses close to 100% of my cpu when encoding.
Any help in fixing this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
This is beyond outrageous. Sometimes, while outputting a blu-ray, it just hangs. It won't free, just hangs. The program stops, and the time remaining keeps increasing, while there's no progress at all. Left it overnight, and nothing happens. It's just stuck. When you're outputting a 10h blu-ray disc... kinda bugs you. Please, fix it. Maybe a sort of record the program can keep, so you would resume encoding where you left off, like in Sony Architect?! Thanks in advance.
I have a non anamorphic letter boxed video clip(4:3) which I want to scale up to an anamorphic 16:9 (still keeping it as a 4:3) and eliminate the black bars.
I normally use teh CROP filter and crop out the black bars whic seems to work well.
Using the PICTURE RESIZE filter seems to do the same job so which is best to use? or does it not matter as thelatter is used by default anyway.
Hi, I am having one problem when I load background image for a menu page.
Everything is fine when I put drawing jpeg or any other format but if that drawing have some words or if I put a jpeg only with typed text it looks like the resolution is very bad. I tried everything.. 300 dpi nothing work. The reason why I am not using the text option in TMPGEnc Authoring Works is because it can not give me the typography alignment that I want.
Can anyone please help?
I might be wrong, but if you're talking about the preview window, I guess for faster viewing/rendering, it reduces the background quality. At least, that's what happens with me. The output will be full quality. ;)
I am adding several small clips in single track, and I am having such a waste of time naming every single one of the clips in the track/popup menus! I have the filenames all numbered as they should show up in the menus, but naming the files before importing them became useless. Please, add this feature. Thanks in advance.
I am really hoping they add features like this too.
Also I make large blu-rays with 50+ videos on sometimes that all need chapters added every 5 minutes. With Nero and Corel software they automatically add these chapter points to every video with a single click, but with Authoring Works I have to manually go to each video to then automatically add a 5 minute chapter to it. If I want every video to have 5 minute chapters, surely they can just add a single tick button to allow this. Obviously this isn't much of an issue with under 10 videos, but with 50+ it is very time consuming for such an easy thing to fix.
Also when I import TS files it always shows the name as "program 1", why can't it just use the name from the file name ?
I am really hoping either AW5 has an update or AW6 comes out with these features.
I love TMPGEnc software and have bought most of the software they bring out, some multiple times for multiple PCs, so I really hope these things can be added as I don't like using other software.
At present I own VMW5 which I use via frameserving with Premiere Pro.
I was thinking about upgrading to H.264 plugin for Premiere.
What i like to know if the H.264 codec is the same for both programs or has the image quality been improved for the plugin.
