Question - TAW5 BBS - Blu Ray BDXL 100GB discs No.70057
SmeltzerDeltzer  2015-11-22 16:38:44 ( ID:0axaxmd3kwm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I recently purchased a few 100B bdXL discs. Is there a way to use them within Authoring works 5? I noticed it only goes up to 50GB.

Any and all help would be appreciated.



Persen  Mail /  )  2015-11-29 21:06:10 ( ID:6tr/46zxmom )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

You can't use those discs any way in your Blu-ray player.
The first players to hit the market, who will have BDXL support, won't arrive before 2016, which are UHD Blu-ray players from Samsung and Panasonic.
Not a single one of the current Blu-ray players supports these discs.

Also, did you check the specs for your Blu-ray writer, if it actually has BDXL support?



Question - TAW5 BBS - Simple 4 item menu selection No.70056
Alpha1  2015-11-22 08:42:16 ( ID:aitjvxtmffr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I want to create an extremely simple menu for Blu-Ray disks. When the disk is inserted it should show 4 selections (tracks) on a main menu. The selected track should play immediately when chosen without any other pages shown. Upon finishing the selected track it should return to the original simple menu. No chapters, no subtitles, nothing except simply open a main menu when the disk is inserted, go to the track selected, finish the track and go back to the main menu. No other selections involved at all.

Is this possible in TAW5?

I have tried at least a dozen different combinations on the custom menu choices with no real success. I keep getting intermediate (one example: chapter pages are shown) and can't get an opening insertion page that shows for track selections only.

Any assistance will be GREATLY appreciated..



Free talk - TAW5 BBS - TAW5 SmartRender Success with Hauppauge HD-PVR 2 1080/30p Recordings! No.70049
TomLewandowski  Mail / Home )  2015-11-18 00:59:01 ( ID:mxbomomsx3n )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]


After months of frustration trying to import Hauppauge PVR 1920x1080 30p video files into TAW5 without full rendering their output, I’ve ‘stumbled’ on a solution. I’ve read a number of comments on various forums that have echoed my frustrations, so I wanted to share how I’m able to import ‘BDMV – Smart Render compliant’ 1920x1080/30p Hauppauge PVR-2 recorded video, into TAW5 … with NO encoding required.

This solution requires the use of NERO VIDEO, since this program doesn’t have issues importing Hauppauge 1920x1080 HD files and treats them as BDMV compatible video, right from the start. However, if you do any editing whatsoever of the captured video while in NERO VIDEO, the program will tag the original progressive files -- as ‘interlaced’ – and that will produce video files that are no longer Smart Render-compliant when imported into TAW5. Therefore, they need to be imported into NERO through the program’s “CREATE AND EXPORT” utility (not the “EDIT AND IMPORT” utility.)

I’ve tested this solution with NERO VIDEO 12 and NERO VIDEO 2014, so I imagine NERO 2015/2016 would work as well. I also used the original Arcsoft Capture Utility to capture the video; it has setting options not found in the Hauppauge Capture utility.

ARCSOFT CAPTURE 1920x1080 (30p) HD RECORDING SETTINGS:

- VIDEO ENCODER: Set bitrate to maximum (14000 kbps), Constant Mode. I haven’t found any differences in using either the M2TS, TS, or MP4 containers. Nor do any AC3 or AAC settings interfere with TAW5’s Smart Render requirements.

- VIDEO PROPERTIES: Set GOP ‘B Frames’ to “1”, ‘Size’ to “3”, and ‘Muxed Data Rate’ to “3”.

- HAUPPAUGE H264 ENCODER: Select “Defaults” in the Video Encoder section, or make certain that the Profile and Level are set to “HIGH 4.0”.


As long as there’s no corrupt video data present, NERO VIDEO (v.12 or higher) should import Hauppauge recorded video without the need for any encoding.

(The following assumes you know how to use Nero Video.)

Using NERO VIDEO, select “Create A Blu-ray Disc”. Import your recording(s) into the CONTENT menu. Continue to the MENU CREATION options and select NOT to create menus. Continue to the final, PROJECT SUMMARY screen. Your imported video should show “Video SmartEncoding as 100%”. The audio is irrelevant. Write the project to a directory on your hard drive. When complete, open the BDMV/STREAM directory and find your .m2ts videos …. which are now ready to import into TAW5 as “Smart Render” compliant video files.

You can double-check with MediaInfo to make sure the file(s) are still read as Progressive. Also, that ReFrames is at “3” (not, “2”), Format Profile is “High@L4” (not, “4.1”).

I brought this issue to the attention of the programmers at Hauppauge a few years ago, they refused to fix it, and I gave up trying. The problem is a simple one. The hardware programing did not strictly follow the blu ray standard for setting a certain video flag for 1920x1080. It will work ok for 720P format because the flag is correct for 720p. I am out of town and need to look up the flag in my notes when I get home.

Hi, I want to create movies from camcorder mpeg-4 files with hard cuts between two scenes. But I want to cross fade the audio of this files. The idea is to cut the last second of the first and the first second of the second video and use the overlapipng second of audio for the cross fade. But I do not find a simple way to do that. Do I overlook something?

I didn't realize my clock was an hour off until after my first video at a deposition. Does anyone know how to remove a timestamp from a video?


tkrave  2015-11-13 08:12:31 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

If it's encoded into the video, then the only way to get rid of it is to cover it up or blur it out. If you are putting the correct timestamp on it, you can cover it with a solid-colored rectangle and then put the correct timestamp over it. Or blur that area and then put the timestamp on top of that.

When I make moving group of selected clips that setting in two or more layers on the timeline it leads to set inaccurate position this clips and I get offset from each other for one or two frame between clip positions on the timeline.

It infuriates! Please, fix it quickly!!!

Request - TAW5 BBS - gaps between chapters, or a new clip property No.70021
GlennD  2015-11-09 10:28:44 ( ID:2anh/oesgcn )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have some video scans of 8mm home movies.
I can make transitions at the split points, but all transitions
modify the source, on both chapters at the split point.

In a future version of TAW I would like to be able to insert a gap
(with default value of 2 seconds) at the end of the
chapter before the split point.
The default color should be black.
This gap would not modify any source frames.

Yes, I could insert a picture or a pattern,
but then that makes a new chapter and so the chapter numbers
are all messed up.

So maybe another possibility is to have a clip property
that does *not* increment the chapter number.
The property would be similar to this one:
"Do not display this chapter in the menu"
In this case, the clip would simply be merged with the previous one
into the same chapter.

Thanks for the consideration,
GlennD

I had the same issue. What I did was create a black image with the same resolution as the track, and add it between the tracks, setting its duration to 1sec. Takes a little bit of time, but while there isn't such feature, it helps creating a gap. Problem is you'll have to turn off the image chapter (as it will be taken as a chapter alone) when building menus. Like said, it takes more time. :)



Question - TVMW5 BBS - How to select all files in timeline mode at once No.70012
Patrick S.  Mail /  )  2015-11-06 07:31:02 ( ID:rdomyqtrxb. )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hi,

How to select all files at once in (timeline mode) that are in your timeline accros different layers?

Example:

if i delete a file from the time line there is a gap in the time line all files after the delete file need to be selected and move to the time where the file has been delete to get rid of the gap.

The way i do it now is hold CTRL and select every file that i want to move.
Is the also an other way? and is there a way so select al files at once?

Thanks.


tkrave  2015-11-13 06:56:39 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Easiest way to get rid of gaps is to right-click on the layer header and select the "Bring all clips in this layer to the beginning" option. This will remove all gaps in the layer.

You can't select all clips across all layers, but you can use ctrl+A to select all clips in the selected layer.

Question - TAW5 BBS - Smart Rendering Compliant Files - Slower than Re-Rendering No.69997
TomLewandowski  Mail / Home )  2015-11-02 20:50:22 ( ID:.t38jdbdulr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Almost all of my HD 1920x1080 30p read as fully SMART RENDERING compliant upon loading them into TAW5. In fact, I've even created a few HD videos by taking compliant clips, and re-rerendering them in TAW5 -- then reloading them into a new project. There are no flags, no indications that any clip is not SR compliant, and all the settings indicate the final product is prioritized to utilize Smart Rendering.

However, every time I start outputting the BDMV structure, TAW5 goes through an "ANALYZING" process for each video clip, except the menus (which also contain SR-compliant video backgrounds.) This "analyzing" process is soooo slow that I've given up waiting for it (over 24 hours for 4, 40-minute videos.)

If I simply re-render the videos by disabling Smart Rendering, the same project renders in a couple of hours. So, what's the deal with this extremely slow 'ANALYZING' process, and how do I get rid of it? I don't see any mention of settings for it in PREFERENCES, and the HELP in TAW5 doesn't really mention it.

I use the IBM HARDWARE SDK for encoding, though I've tried using TAW5's X264 encoder as well. I have all encoder settings set to NORMAL, 1-pass VBR, Smart Rendering Prioritized, MPEG-4 AVC (but have tried MPEG-2 SR-compliant files, too), all files in the track are SR compliant (not a mixture of FR and SR files). Even if there's only one file with no menus, and the file is 100% SR-compliant, the damn 'analyzing' begins as soon as I try to output the BDMV structure -- and it takes hours to analyze.

I've given up trying to use TAW5 with Smart Rendering enabled, and just end up re-encoding projects to a slightly higher bitrate, using the SDK Hardware Encoder; it's so much faster. Even when using a software encoder, re-encoding the project is so much faster than waiting for TAW5 to "analyze" each file.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


shinrabansho  2015-11-03 10:45:30 ( ID:q63jyagigco )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

In my case, "ANALYZING" completes in the matter of seconds (or maybe minutes).

If I were you, I would uninstall the "the IBM HARDWARE SDK for encoding" to see if (1) the uninstall would eliminate the problem you refer to, and (2) TAW's own encoder is better or worse than the IBM SDK.


TomLewandowski  Mail / Home )  2015-11-04 05:07:59 ( ID:.t38jdbdulr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Well, I've disabled the SDK Hardware Encoder, selected TAW5's x264 Encoder, and it's no different. I tried this with a 30-minute HD (full smart render compliant), and "ANALYZING" appears. I let it run to see how long it would take, but gave up after just about three hours of v-e-r-y slow progress. I'm not sure how to access IBM's SDK encoder settings (there's nothing in Windows' Control Panel or Device Manager that I've been able to locate, but I'll check again. I'm hoping you're right and disabling IBM's SDK hardware encoder will resolve this issue. I'll let you know.


shinrabansho  2015-11-04 08:24:50 ( ID:q63jyagigco )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I do not know what your system looks like (mobo, CPU, memory, GPU etc) or how important the IBM SDK is to you but, if reinstallation of Windows is not an option for you, installtion of a virtual machine, e.g. VMWare Workstation Player (free), might be worthwhile to see if the clean and simple setup of Windows environment (without the IBM SDK etc) plus TAW only cures the problem. I have been using TAW for several years by now but have never had a case where ANALYSING took such a long time.


TomLewandowski  Mail / Home )  2015-11-04 22:21:50 ( ID:.t38jdbdulr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I'm running TAW5 on an Intel Core i5 processor, under Win7 Professional, 8GB's RAM, on a Acer Aspire laptop - Intel HD 3000 integrated graphic card. The SDK Hardware encoder isn't used by any other authoring software I'm using; just TAW5, so I might as well bite the bullet and uninstall the SDK support files. Think maybe I'll first try booting up in Safe Mode, and disabling everything I can that will still allow TAW5 to function. If all else fails, maybe do a clean Win7 install. I really would like to be able to use TAW5 without re-encoding.

I was hesitating on doing anything drastic only because I was hoping, Pegasys would release either an update, or upgrade that would include "end of clip" play options, and integrate some basic "copy and paste" or full "duplicate" menu and menu item features -- something that would seem to be a pretty basic BDMV authoring feature. But alas, they don't seem to be addressing these limitations.


TomLewandowski  Mail / Home )  2015-11-05 04:03:37 ( ID:.t38jdbdulr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I was able to disable the Hardware SDK encoder, limiting my choice of encoding using the x264 software encoder. Didn't help. I'm using a one-video BDMV format with no menus, and still, when I begin the BDMV creation, the "ANALYZING" message pops up and creeps along very slowly.

I also uninstalled the current version of TAW5, and installed an earlier version, and disabled all other installed multimedia software from loading (via CCleaner's Start-up editor). Still, no change.

At one point (during the past year) after one of the program updates, I actually did have a very short HD video, Smart Render, but it hasn't done so since.

Almost all of my HD video files are recorded with a Hauppauge PVR 2 HD recorder, at 1920x1080 30p. These HD recordings load perfectly into NERO VIDEO and require no re-encoding; audio is AC3 5.1, recorded using an optical (toslink) connection. NERO reads both VIDEO and AUDIO as 100% SmartEncode compliant. I then export them from NERO VIDEO as m2ts BD files, where they will then read as Full Smart Render compliant by TAW5. Nothing is flagged as non-BDMV compliant.

Very frustrating....

Here's two, 2-minute 1920x1080 (30i) .m2ts AVC/AC3 video files, both which load as Smart Render compliant in TAW5 ... and both first go through a slow 'analyzing' process when outputting them to BDMV format.

shinrabansho  2015-11-06 10:39:44 ( ID:q63jyagigco )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hi. Thanks for the upload. I just downloaded the two test files. I then loaded them onto TAW5 (5.2.4.63) and attempted to make a Blu-Ray disk out of them (using the default setting in TAW). The "ANALYZING" part took about 4 minutes, and the Smart Render process (yes, my TAW recognized the files as Smart Renderable) also took another 4 minutes resulting in a proper Blu-Ray disc image (am viewing it with Power DVD). Thus, contrary to my earlier suspicion, the files produced by your capture device seem OK as I do not see oddity when I check the files with MediaInfo. One thing I would like you to test is the field order of the interlace setting in TAW: What happens if you change the field order to "Bottom field first" in Track setting (you have to change Output setting to "Re-encode all videos as blow" (instead of Automatic (Smart rendering prioritized) first to choose the field order option)? Does TAW still take a long time in the analyzing part?


TomLewandowski  Mail / Home )  2015-11-06 23:41:09 ( ID:.t38jdbdulr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Thanks for checking the files. It appears you duplicated the same results I get -- so when Smart Rendering a BDMV with four, 40-minute videos, the "analyzing time" becomes ridiculously long....and re-encoding (via Hardware SDK) takes only a couple of hours.

Reversing the field order doesn't appear to be any different, since TAW5 re-encodes at the same speed on my system, no matter how the field order is set; there's no "analyzing" screen that appears when I use either Hardware or Software encoders. I'm currently trying a 42-minute video Smart Render, and the "analyzing" screen is present: It states the remaining time as, 12 hours, 17 mins, though the time keeps increasing as the video progresses.


I've found that Smart Render works for me with TAW's definition of compliant "PROGRESSIVE" (instead of INTERLACED) video files! My PVR is capturing in Progressive format (1920x1080 30p ~16Mbps AVC.) When I load the captured file into NERO VIDEO, it reads it as 100% Video and Audio Smart Render compliant, and doesn't re-encode it. However, the resulting .m2ts file reads as interlaced, after NERO creates it. Since it's not re-encoding the file, I don't know why this is happening. MediaInfo, TAW5, and even Windows 'File Properties' all recognize the original file as progressive, until NERO creates a BDMV structure.

TAW5 flags several parameters or these original recordings as non-BDMV compliant. I think I need to play around with some PVR recording settings to see if I can find one that TAW likes. I'm not sure how much I'm able to change, but I still can't figure out why NERO is tagging these files as INTERLACED...there would be no problem if it would leave the file data intact.

I do not use the capture device or the video editor you refer to so cannot give you much advice there. Meanwhile, I came across a message that might be relevant to you. I hope this helps.

Tom

I explained above. The manufacturer used an incorrect flag in the HARDWARE for capturing 1080. It does not stricly follow the DVD/Blu ray standard when you capture 1080. 720P works fine and will smart rendor because the plag is correct for 720P.

It was a simple correction. I brought up the issue with the programmers at the company, they were subborn, and they refused to fix it. Therefore 1080 files will not smart rendor in software that is strict to the DVD/Blu Ray standards. TMPgenc strictly follows the standards other software may not.

Long story short...Give up trying to make it work. Waste of time. I tried for about a year to get the issued at Hauppauge corrected. it would have worked fine if the file was outputted from the pvr as interlaced instead of progressive.
