Question - TAW5 BBS - HD Camcorder to DVD - Looks like low framerate No.68540
jrburke99  2014-06-27 06:02:45 ( ID:enk/koxoun2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I am importing files from my HD camcorder. I am not at home right now, so I have no exact details. I believe they are MP4 files? I bring them directly into Authoring Works, create an NTSC DVD project, I don't mess with any settings, just create the titles and a menu. The output DVD (dual-layer) when played on my PS3 (upscaling) on my HD TV, looks like the framerate is low. I wouldn't call it choppy, it just looks like it is running at a very steady, but LOW framerate. I have made multiple DVDs of home movies, and they all look the same. Original, store bought DVD movies look great. I even have a couple movie DVDs that I had ripped and compressed (not with Authoring Works), and they all look fine. So I figure it is an issue converting the video from the HD camcorder format to the DVD format. Anybody else have these issues, or know how to fix them? Do I need to convert to SD first using another process or program? Thank you!

What format is the video (frame rate and interlaced or progressive)? MP4 can be any of several different formats.

What camcorder did you use to record the video?

Question - TAW4 - Can TAW 4 open TDA 1.6 tda files? No.68534
Davey  2014-06-26 10:23:14 ( ID:oehyrhpgir2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Just a question. Moving up from XP to Win7, my old DVD Author 1.6 isn't working much any more (been a champ for years), so I'm looking at TAW 4. Took a couple of my old .tda projects to a friend's house to try his copy, and his TAW 4 wouldn't open them ("this isn't a TAW 4 project" or the like).

I've got a ton of templates that I use for DVD authoring, and given TAW's weird UI I'd be hesitant about having to re-create them all. Is there any way to persuade TAW 4 to open my original 1.6 .tda files?

Thanks!

Davey

TAW4 isn't sold anymore, so you won't be able to buy it, even if there was a workaround.

The current version, TAW5, can only open project files from TAW5, TAW4, and TMPGEnc DVD Author 3.

I recently updated from version 3 to version 5. Now everytime I load the program and try to do anything it crashes. Running windows 7 - latest everything.

Do you have both installed at the same time? Try uninstalling everything and reinstall the latest version (release a few days ago), otherwise you should contact support directly for the crashes.



Question - TVMW5 BBS - Playback issue on IPad with IOS 7 / 8 No.68531
CBeyz  Mail /  )  2014-06-23 16:12:32 ( ID:dyuhg8neud. )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Dear community,

I have a problem with content in h.264 (x264, mp4) via HLS on IPads (and IPhones) with IOS 7 and 8. The first 10-15 seconds of the video are freezed, but it seems on the first frame of the second TS package. The sound plays perfectly.
For the HLS segmenting, a wowza server is used.

So I changed every possible setting in TMPGenc 5 (x264), I tried to be as close to Apples requirements as possible. I tried the built - in - Presets of TMPGenc but with no success either.

What could be ruled out are errors with wowza, as h264 files from other encoders are working fine.

Intel SDK and CUDA produce random successful files, with no logical pattern - but they are no option due to quality issues. We use MPEG2 and M2TS as source files.

What we analyzed is:

- x264 from TMPGenc produces h264 files with a slightly different structure (SPS+PPS+IDR) than other encoders.
- x264 from TMPGenc exceeds the VBV buffer all the time


Do you also have encountered such a problem? Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

Best,

CB

Question - TPXC - Some Questions about TMPGEnc PGMX Creator... No.68528
MichaelR  Mail /  )  2014-06-22 14:08:50 ( ID:rgrrirpq.ih )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

First I have to say, I like this idea to have everything in just a single file. I tried your software and it makes a very good first-impression.
Nevertheless, I have some questions about it.

What I heard is - I'm no expert - that MP4 is better in compressing videos, so I understand that you choose this format, but since nowadays videos are mostly in the MPEG-format and so to me it would have made sense to me, to allow both formats coexist inside a .pgmx-container.
So it would be possible to export some videos to DVD/BluRay without reencoding.
In the current way it would need a double-reencoding (MPEG->MP4->MPEG).

Are there any devices, like e.g. DVD-Player, TVs, which can handle .pgmx-files or can we expect some to come in the near future?

After I created a .pgmx-file, can I export certain .mp4-videos from it to the outside-world? I didn't find such a possibility in the software.

In the FAQ I read, menu's can't be imported from a DVD.
But it would be quite useful to be able to create a DVD from a given .pgmx-file. So it would be no additional effort to give away some video-files to someone who is not so much into PCs.

Some additional questions about the license:
On how many of my computers can I install TMPGEnc PGMX CREATOR with one license?
If not on all, What if a computer I installed it gets defect?
Is this the license policy for all TMPGEnc-products?
Are there other important, but not yet available, features, which are planned for free-updates for v1.x?

George  2014-06-23 00:37:30 ( ID:lsk7calqe8h )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I agree that the PGMX idea is very good. However, I don't see how it can achieve widespread success since it's missing two very important features:

1. Cannot import directly an existing DVD menu and apply it to the PGMX file, as MichaelR already said. That's what anyone would expect from such a file format.

2. PGMX files playback restricted to Pegasys's own player. I doubt anyone will switch over from their favourite software player just for PGMX files. A Directshow filter/codec should have been made available to allow PGMX playback on the most common and loved software players.

>So it would be possible to export some videos to DVD/BluRay without reencoding.

Blu-ray can use MP4 video, so as long as it's compliant, Blu-ray will be able to support it without re-encoding.

You can only install it on one computer at a time.
If your computer dies, just install it on anther computer; there should be no problem as long as it's been a while since the initial installation. Just don't install it on multiple computers at once.
This is pretty much the same policy on all TMPGEnc products.

Thanks, tkrave

>> Blu-ray can use MP4 video, so as long as it's compliant, Blu-ray will be able to support it without re-encoding.

Ah. Didn't know (or forgot it).

Have you perhaps found a way to export embedded MP4-files out of a pgmx-structure?



tkrave  2014-07-01 06:07:54 ( ID:resxbfmz4s2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Actually, exporting from a PGMX file will be the tough part. But I think they are going to add PGMX support to TMPGEnc Authoring Works 5, as they just added support to MPEG Smart Renderer 4. That will be one way to turn it into a Blu-ray or DVD...it might end up being the only way.

tkrave  2014-06-20 03:25:16 ( ID:resxbfmz4s2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

If you are editing in normal mode, from the Edit stage, double click on your clip to open the clip editing window, then go to the Clip Properties tab. From there you can specify a different audio source.

If you just want to overlay another audio file on top of existing audio, you should edit in Timeline mode.
Create a new layer and add the audio file to that layer.

Question - TAW5 BBS - Move chapter keyframe easily ? No.68519
benoitm  2014-06-16 21:13:07 ( ID:3ze2vdkhebf )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have 2 versions of a video where the chapters are identical, but with slight variations in the exact keyframe position. I have created all chapters in the first video & would like to import the chapter list into the second, then adjust each chapter slightly to their correct position.
I have found easy no way to do this:
1) I could "nudge" the chapters to be moved, frame-by-frame using the chapter context menu option "Move to previous/next frame", but this is slow as I have to move the chapter by several seconds (tens/hundreds of frames) and there is no keyboard shortcut for this operation
2) faster but still tedious with tens of chapters:
create a new chapter at the correct position, copy/paste the existing chapter name to the newly created one, then delete the old chapter.

Am I missing a faster/easier way ?


tkrave  2014-06-20 03:22:36 ( ID:resxbfmz4s2 )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I'm pretty sure there's an option to specify a timecode; that's probably the easiest way.

Just note the timecode where the chapter mark should be, then open the chaptering tool and specify the timecode to insert a chapter point.

I think that making the PGMX player into a app for Android and ios would make it more fantastic than it already is. Instead of only being able to play your creations on your computer but also on yours smartphone or tablet would really rock!

I love TMPGEnc products, but I am afraid this one is dead-end unless the free players comes very soon to iOS, Android, MacOS, Linux, and gets support from online players and video sharing sites like Vimeo etc.
Until then....let's wait !

Development team  2014-06-13 14:10:17 ( ID:2h/531v3iln )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Upcoming release of the brand-new TMPGEnc PGMX CREATOR software.
The download version will be released on 6/17/2014.

----------------------------------------------------
One File Includes Video, Menus, Slideshows, Subtitles and Audio - No Physical Media Required!
----------------------------------------------------
Introducing PGMX, a next generation original Pegasys file format that can store menu, video data and more in a single file. Create DVD / Blu-ray styled navigation menus, add a photo slideshow, subtitles, multiple audio streams and more without the limitations of physical media discs. TMPGEnc PGMX CREATOR allows you to do it all with an easy to use interface that allows you to create custom menus or use pre-made templates. Smart rendering (lossless editing) and support for many types of video files make it easy to start creating PGMX files.

----------------------------------------------------
What Is the PGMX Format?
----------------------------------------------------
PGMX is short for Pegasys Multimedia Box. Developed by Pegasys, it can store both menu and video content into a single file (.pgmx / .mkv). The video stream is H.264/AVC, and since the file does not depend on physical media such as DVD and Blu-ray discs, it is not limited to certain video characteristics. For example, you can use MP4 video from you smart phone which typically may not be DVD or Blu-ray compliant, or you can even use videos in 4K resolution (4096×2304). PGMX files give you the freedom to keep your videos at a quality level and resolution of your choosing.

PGMX files can also utilize a navigational menu system that can link to multiple videos within the file. Since both the menu and videos are combined into one file, there is no complex folder structure like those found in the DVD-Video and Blu-ray formats. Having everything in just one file makes it easy to use, copy and transport.

For PGMX file playback, we've also released TMPGEnc PGMX PLAYER, a dedicated PGMX player that is FREE to download! It is equipped with many features that makes it easy to play PGMX files or organize your PGMX library.

Main features

- Combine video clips, menus, audio/subtitle streams and slideshows in one, simple file.
- Native input support for the latest file formats such as H.264 stream FLV, MOV, and WebM.
- Edit video clips with the cut-editing tool.
- Create menus in as little as 5 seconds with the Menu Wizard.
- Create slideshows of your digital photos.
- Add professional-looking transition effects.
- Create custom menu items to create a truly unique menu.
- MPEG-2 TS file analysis helps import mixed resolution multi-stream files.
- Utilizes the x264 video encoder.
- Smart rendering (lossless editing) for compliant formats.
- Add and edit up to 8 subtitle streams.
- Add and edit up to 4 audio streams.
- Intel® Media SDK and NVIDIA(R) CUDA(TM) support for H.264 decoding and encoding.

I like the concept of a "smart" media format; something similar to DVD/Blueray where you can have menus and >especially chapters<!

For training videos, chapters are a boon to being able to easily restart a section, and/or just jump directly to where you want to start off in the video. Excellent idea!


I've just installed the trial to give it a go, but before starting I'll voice my opinions, and more importantly, what I need out of a "smart video format" >and smart video format player< before I get started using it.

Hopefully, at least for the player, these features are already in there.


For my opinions, I applaud you in trying to come up with a video format that has dvd/blueray like capabilities, however for WIDE adoption, I feel these days, people want to watch their videos on their LARGE TVs, not just on their computer screen!

I know when I create my MP4 videos or download a video off say YouTube, I'll IMMEDIATELY add it to my >Plex video catalog< so I can then go into the living room and watch it on my >Roku or Blueray player<.

I can play MKVs on the Roku, WD TV and Plex but I don't believe the chapters (subtitles?) would carry over in that format?


With that being said, I feel it would be great if you could create Roku (or Plex?) player that would allow these PGMX videos to be viewed on large screen TVs (with chapters and subtitles still available.)

With that accomplished, I feel this new video format will take off with the masses!

People could author their GoPro and other videos to PGMX format with menus and chapters, and then be able to play them on their Rokus and Plex players etc., great stuff!


Finally for the PGMX player, I'm >hoping< there's >slow motion< capabilities?

I briefly tried playing back the sample video and jumping between chapters was great but there are times where I also need to slow down a portion of a video while watching, AND coming from players like "The KMPlayer", it'd be great to also be able to set >multiple Loop Points< where the player will continually play a the particular looped section it is within when the looping mode is turned on. (It'd be great to allow defining multiple looped sections while playing as well. Being able to save the loop regions would be absolute wonderful as well!)


So again I APPLAUD you for this bold idea for a new video format, I'd just also like to see the PGMX Player also have bold playback capabilities as well, to keep up with the high-end norm for present day video players.


Thanks for reading and your consideration.
