Request - TVMW6 - 'Copy' Audio and/or Video No.70801
bobthegoat2001  Mail /  )  2017-06-23 01:35:02 ( ID:ri07.fpz166 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

A feature that I have been wanting for awhile now is a feature to just 'Copy' the audio from the original video. Audio is normally so small, that re-encoding it is unnecessary. I believe it's better to just copy the original audio so that their isn't any quality loss when converting it. There are some codecs not supported by TMPGenc VMW 6 also, for example DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 channel.

Question - TVMW6 - Keep last frame of video No.70794
Otto  Mail /  )  2017-06-20 22:39:34 ( ID:y/wqiqwptyj )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

is it possible to freeze frames for a period amount of time inside a single clip?

I have an audio-recording, which is a longer then the original video-clip. So i would like to freeze (stretch) certain parts inside the video-clip until the audio arrives at the specific marker and then continue with the regular video.

Thank you and best regards.

tkrave  2017-06-21 16:06:18 ( ID:nrp09m2aqdn )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Is the audio a separate file from the video? If not, you'll have to demux them into separate files.

I would then use the timeline mode and put the audio on one layer and the video on another.
Then, you can use the clip editor to create a separate clip of the frame(s) you want to stretch.
Back in the timeline, you can then lengthen that clip to the appropriate time.

Otto  Mail /  )  2017-06-21 20:54:43 ( ID:y/wqiqwptyj )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Yes tkrave, the audio is separate from the video.

Thank you for your suggestion. I already tried that, but the effort for creating the exact frame is way to much when i have to do this around 50 times per video.

An easy way would be to just cut the video where you want to have the still-image and the stretch the cut clip to the right for the desired period of time. Unfortunately TMPGEnc continues with the original video-footage when doing that.

tkrave  2017-06-22 12:41:04 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

If it is a single frame, turn the frame into an image and import that image as a clip. Then you can extend it to any length and it will still be the same image.

Otto  2017-06-23 22:31:46 ( ID:kuz9.f2vrcw )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Thank you tkrave for your ongoing writing. Do you have a hint how i can turn the last frame of a cutted clip into a single image?

tkrave  2017-06-24 13:37:40 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

In the clip editor, navigate to your final frame and then you press CTRL+F or right-click on the image and choose to save it as an image.

tkrave you are awesome. This is exactly what i was searching for!
Now i can fill up the missing gap with a continuous picture.

Thank you very much for your help.

Question - TVMW6 - No MP3 audio in encoded AVI No.70793
MFiend  2017-06-20 13:40:28 ( ID:yzjw4sdq55l )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Want to reencode an FLV to x264/MP3.

The Video encoding works without problems.

But NO audio is produced, whether I select PCM or MP3.

Source audio is MP3 64 kbps mono 44.1 kHz. Even if I select exactly the same MP3 output type in Advanced Acoustic Engine MP3 Encoder, NO audio is produced - zilch.


MFiend  2017-06-28 09:36:22 ( ID:yzjw4sdq55l )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Answer is that x264vfw has 2 output modes, "File" and "VFW", while TMPGEnc VMW6 outputs to its "Output File Name".

If I select x264vfw's "File" mode, video is output there but any audio goes to TE6's "Output File Name".

If I select x264vfw's "VFW" mode, video+audio is muxed in TE6's "Output File Name", but with video delay - need to select "Zero latency" in x264vfw to avoid but that increases filesize.

Question - TAW6 - Only using 20% CPU during encode No.70792
Simmo1985  Mail /  )  2017-06-17 17:07:43 ( ID:g.vgmasdd2g )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

When I output a project to DVD, the program is only using 20% of my CPU (R7 1700, 8c/16t). I've tried enabling CUDA to see if that speeds things up, but it actually slows down the encode (only by a couple of minutes).

Is there something I'm missing?

Brian Ward  Mail /  )  2017-07-24 23:27:54 ( ID:wvnsvtpxjxc )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I had the same issue when I imported a TAW5 project that included previously rendered output with subtitles. I found the re-rendering process spent a very long time displaying "analysing subtitles" before finally outputting the lossless video. During this process it only used one of the four cores of my processor.

If you have the same issue, I resolved it by creating a new TAW6 project rather than importing the old TAW5 version. The new version ran using almost 100% processor..

Anba  Mail /  )  2018-09-02 14:44:59 ( ID:lcyqaxq.42f )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I've noticed the same thing in my case too. Converting a video from one format to another, typically can take anywhere from just a few minutes to several hours. And for the so many hours, the CPU is only half utilized! why wouldn't the software run the cpu at full load and reduce the encoding time by one third?

Question - TAW6 - Leave streams unchanged No.70790
ciccio.reborn  2017-06-15 06:53:30 ( ID:x/rhjisbokj )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]


I used for many years TAW5 and, also if with some limitations (specially on menu side), I found it very useful for my purposes.

I would like to upgrade to TAW6 but I need a new feature: leave streams unchanged (in my case audio stream). Recently I was asked to produce a blu-ray with HD audio (for some concert recordings) but with TAW5 (or TAW6) this is impossible.

I know for sure audio stream is perfectly blu-ray compatible and I understand why TAW cannot decode these audio streams (royalties for DTS HD): but if TAW had the ability to leave streams unchanged (without any decoding)? Obviously at the risk of those who use this option

I cannot afford for this purpose to buy professional authoring suite: what do you think?

Thanks in advance

NoMention  2017-07-21 08:21:26 ( ID:ptw2koe57hj )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I had the same request some time ago and they basically said no. I have both the DTS and Dolby encoding suite but like you I cannot afford the professional authoring tools for BD generation. I can build TrueHD and DTS-MA tracks but cannot utilize them in TAW5 or TAW6, both which I have. It would be nice if the app allowed you to select these but only muxed them together with the video at output time. I would save me a lot of hassle and make this a truly wonderful product.

Due to this issue, I've started exploring multiAVCHD which appears to allow this although their menu system is not nearly as good as TAW.

I have an MKV file with the properties below, which when I load it into TVMW6, I get "No Picture Available" in the Clip Editor and "No Video Data" in the Clip Properties. Yet, I can play this file fine using several different media applications such as VLC, Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic. The audio is seen as expected. Is there anything I can do to make this file's video to be seen by TVMW6? Thank you.

You might simply need to use a different file reader.

You can select 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.

Question - TVMW6 - Mask filter in clip mode No.70783
senior14  Mail /  )  2017-06-10 17:20:53 ( ID:ogdavir0hdc )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I want to blacken a part of the picture over a range of about 400 frames. Whatever setting I've tried so far generates a black mask over the required range of frames but in the output video the mask moves a significant stretch from right to left at the beginning of the masking for about 5 seconds. This results in displaying partially some of the area i want to conceal. For the rest of the masking period the result is as expected.
Perhaps it is important to mention that I didn't have to double-click into the pre-view to display the mask shape. The contour of the mask appears automatically when "mask" ist selected in the filter list.

Any suggestions what I do wrongly? I'd be thankful for any hint.


Question - TAW6 - Automatically load subtitles (.srt) with video No.70776
ki2  Mail /  )  2017-06-08 11:27:32 ( ID:hhb7fhipyyl )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Anyone here can please let me know or guide me on how to configure TAW6 to load the subtitle (.srt format) automatically with the video?
On TAW4 this was done automatically, as long as the SRT and the video had the exact same name, only extension different. In TAW6, in the clip addition windows, you have to always go to "subtitle edit", import the SRT, edit (which never saves the configuration BTW: font, color, size, position, etc.), and this is a horrible waste of time.
Any help, really appreciated.....

phylbert  2017-12-31 19:09:15 ( ID:alfj5bgjega )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

For foreign films, where I'm _always_ going to want the subtitles to be visible, I burn them into the video while rendering it.
I installed the free K-Lite codec pack, and using its Codec Tweak Tool, I set the preferred filters to ffdshow (the alternative, LAV, doesn't do subtitles).
Then, in TAW6, I use the "DirectShow Supported Files" filter to add video to the project. When I preview or render the project, the subtitles are automatically added by the DirectShow filters. TAW6 doesn't even know they're there, as they just become part of the video stream it's encoding.
This isn't ideal if you want the ability to turn the subs on and off, but since I'm in no hurry to learn Swahili, Icelandic, or Cantonese, this works perfectly for my needs.

Question - TAW6 - User No.70775
Tom Lewandowski  2017-06-08 05:04:29 ( )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have been receiving error messages in the TAW6 demo while editing ‘User Added Items’, both images and text:

“An error occurred while saving the data. Refer to the error content below:

This parameter is incorrect. (Error code 0x80070057)”

I haven’t noticed if the same ‘error code’ appears each time I’ve received it. But, it happens when using the ‘Move to front/back’ edit function (with both images and text), resizing images, moving images and text boxes.

I can't get passed this error unless I save the project, close the program and restart it; I can than edit the image or text that was producing the error, and continue working for a while...before it happens again.

It appears that, even though Pegasus support staff don’t respond on this forum, they DO respond to software problems noted here when updating their products. It’s obvious by their correcting issues I’ve mentioned on this forum. After all, they can’t successfully sell a buggy product, especially when they’ve created a forum specifically for customers to find support.

Sorry this comes about 6 months too late for you, but I encountered the same issue over the weekend. When I searched the error code, I not only found your question (which had no responses), I also found articles from Microsoft that indicated that this is an access permission issue. Long story short: I had burned a DVD last week that ended up needing a few tweaks. I re-rendered the source files (in other software) and tried to recreate the DVD. TMPGEnc could no longer recognize the re-rendered source files. I was able to re-add them pretty easily before deleting the old references to them. So far so good.
Bottom line: If you edit a file being used by TMPGEnc, it may not be recognized and you may have to re-add and then delete the original. Hope this is helpful to someone.

Question - TAW6 - Turning off AutoStart? No.70771
Bob Collier  2017-06-07 05:27:58 ( ID:avlymbfi7hh )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I just sent an email to technical support, but maybe I might be able to get assistance here more quickly.

We are discovering that the program seems to default to start automatically playing the first track of our DVDs after sitting at any menu for a few moments. Can't seem to figure out where to turn that feature OFF.

We need the DVDs to stay at whatever menu is on screen until the user opts to start playing the DVD. Is there a setting that we have yet to find to actually shut that autoplay feature OFF?

Thank you in advance!

Wow. That sounds like a bug because I don't think there's a setting for that. It should stay on the menu.
There is an autostart feature but it will not display the menu at all; just play the track when you insert the disc.

phylbert  2017-06-14 14:35:08 ( ID:kgeqgweitzh )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hi Bob,

Are you perhaps using Motion Menus?

There's a selector on the "Motion Menus" tab of the "DVD Video Global Menu Settings" panel, that lets you specify what happens when the Motion Menu has played out.

You can set it to do nothing, to loop, or to jump in and start playing the tracks.
Perhaps you've got it set to the latter?

The behaviour you describe is quite common on retail DVDs, but it'd be nice to control it.

Question - TMSR5 - I don't understand how to do simple things in this program. Please help! No.70766
JaiBubwan  Mail /  )  2017-06-05 15:26:16 ( ID:epnnm0ftfd6 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

When I edit a video, I have to do two things:
1) Select a segment & save it to a new file.
2) Then remove that selected segment from the overall video, which also has to be saved to a new file.

I'm used to the simple SolveigMM interface. You mark a segment. Right click and save it. Then right click and delete it from the timeline. Press one button to save new video (with segment removed).

But in TMPGEnc Smart Renderer, it is so complicated. After I mark a segment, I see no option to quickly save the clip. There are so many confusing buttons. I tried reading the help manual...but it doesn't make sense to me.

Can someone please tell me some steps to accomplish the two things I need to do?

tkrave  2017-06-06 14:06:49 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

So you want to save both the part your are editing out and the resulting video with the edit?

You can't do it the way SolveigMM does it, mostly because TMSR5 does not use a timeline for editing.

In the clip editor window, you should select the segment you want to edit by using the split clip button to mark the beginning and end of the area you want to cut. The split clip button looks like this: <-|-> (a left arrow, a dividing line, and a right arrow). Once done, you should have blue and orange-marked segments.

Then click on OK. A window will appear asking which segments to keep; you'll want to keep both the blue and orange segments in your case.

You'll be back in the clip list window and you should have 3 clips (if you only want to remove one section). You should save the project now as a base project to create the two resulting videos you want.

After saving, delete the segment you want removed, then you can save and output that as your first file. There is an output option to merge all the clips into one video to create your edited overall video.

Reload your base project file and delete the other segments so you only have the section you want to edit out. Then save and output that.

Hope that makes sense. It sounds complicated, but it's not bad once you get used to it. It's just a different way of editing.

Thank you for your great advice! I understand now.

Though I think one thing that can easily be improved by developers is the "Format > Output Mode" option. Currently, you can either "connect all clips" or "save ALL clips separately".

But for some reason, you cannot choose specific clips to output or merge. This means you have to keep saving & reloading projects to isolate or merge desired clips. Needlessly inefficient.
