Suddenly today Authoring wors 5 seems to be causing Win 7 home premium geforce 440 version.32 to constantly reboot. other video editing programs not affecting
have uninstalled and reinstalled Problem occurs with/without cuda
TMPGEnc Video Mastering works really great, except I cannot seem to do one thing: I have a long timeline with amy clips on it and now I want to insert a clip in the middle of this timeline. When I drop a clip there, it overlaps the clips already in that location. Is it possible to move all other clips forward so I can insert a new clip in the middle of the timeline?
You have to manually move all the clips after the point where you want to insert the clip. Select the first clip you want to move then move to the end of the timeline and shift+click the last clip to select all clips in between.
Zooming out so you can see more clips at a time will help.
I have two large displays. When I am in timeline mode, I would like the editing monitor on one display, the time line itself and other parts on another, so I can get a nearly full-sized monitor.
I can "stretch" the TMPG window to cover both displays, but this doesn't result in a larger monitor as it is height constrained - really what I want to do is reorganize the subwindows inside TMPG to have the TMPG monitor to the 'left' of the timeline.
I have an interactive Blu-Ray menu that was created with Nero Video 12 that I quite like, and I'd like to be able to import into an Authoring Works 5 Blu-Ray project. I wish it to act as the main interactive menu of the TAW5 project.
I've extracted/exported the menu to a separate file, which I successfully added to the TAW5 project. However, I don't know how to make it serve as the interactive main title menu. Can this be done? If so, how?
Are there any settings or drivers needed to be tweaked to get the Intel media sdk options working? Or does it just work out of the box. I just bought a new 4770k and fired it up, but don't really notice a huge speed difference. Any advice?
hi, the faster computer wont have any effect on your quality, the quality is determined by the software.
what was your old pc, what cpu was in it, because your new pc is twice as fast in terms of time, but the 4770k has an onboard graphics chip (intel HD4600) which is a very good chip, and if you were using intel quicksync to encode, it will be pretty fast over cpu based encoding.
im not sure what tmpge uses by default, i just let my editing pc (3770 cpu) run the encode, but my cpu doing a 1080/50p m2ts file to mpeg2 runs at about 70% so it must be using cpu based encoding, if my HD4000 graphics was running in quick sync mode, the cpu will not be working very hard, and my speed to encode will be a lot faster.
having said that, my regular software is Video ReDo, and until the next major release, it only does cpu based encoding.
Hi .I have dvds recorded from vcr tapes
what I want to do is just take the 2 dvds and use tvm5 to put both together and create one file with out losing any of the quality
Ive read they both need to be converted into lossless files ..
so to my question how is that done in tvm5 ?
so far everything ive tried comes out bad quality and very very pixely
once files are created I burn onto blu ray with authoring works 5
your videos are in dvd format, so you cannot improve on what they are now, so what you need to do is mux the 2 individual dvd's into 2 mpeg2 files on your hdd, and im sure TMW5 can do this, it used to do it a few years ago in an older version.
you then import the 2 mpeg2 files into TMW5 or the TMPGE mpeg editor, and mux both files together as a single mpeg2 file, without it being re-encoded, but you cant join them together in a lossless format, and even if you could, you cant improve the quality of the video, especially tht your dvd's were created from vhs tapes anyway.
when you say you will burn them to bluray disc, will you be retaining them in the dvd format (standard definition) or do you want to convert them to bluray format (would totally kill your videos if you did that)
I have several HD clips which are exactly the same spec and are all blu ray compliant. The are all flagged as 'SR' in the source window onone track. The track setting is 'smart render prioritised'.
BUT when i come to output the project it RE-ENCODES IT all!!!!!!
However: the 0-100 quality setting seems to have absolutely no effect on the output's file size. Tried higher and lower settings. Then, there is the strange "maximum bitrate" setting, which doesn't make sense for CRF use, which is supposed to define on its own the needed bitrate, solely based on the quality setting.
I'm not sure what's going on, and wish Pegasys used the well-documented 0-51 CRF output numbers.
hi, yes i agree with you, CRF or RF as i know it can be beneficial, however how do you know which RF quality factor to set for any given input file.
the free handbrake and Xmedia Recode programs are wonderful conversion tools, and both use an RF quality factor mode for setting your output quality, or you can use the Bitrate method, but oddly both those programs use a totally different method to calculate the RF bitrate, so if you encode the same file using the exact same settings, including the same RF quality factor, one will output the file at a much higher bitrate than the other, so this is where you must be very careful using the RF method, you need to know and understand how your given software sets this formula.
i just started using TMPGEnc but only for converting 1080/50p m2ts files from my camera to dvd compliant mpeg2 format so i use a constant bitrate setting of 8.0Mbps.
my regular preferred software is Video ReDo and that has built in quality presets that does the work for you based on pre-determined output quality settings, and thats the way it should be done, not have to guess what bitrate your output file is going to have.
When that codec becomes standard for home use, which is most likely not to happen within the next couple of years any way.
The current situation is that there is an extreme lack of televisions, videocards and computer screens who actually fully supports it, most computers downscale it any way to 1080p because that is the maximum support they have.
hi, yes consumer 4k is still way off in the distance, and i predict 4k for home use actually wont ever eventuate in any reality anyway.
look at bluray, i do not know anyone who owns a bluray player, let alone them owning bluray movies.
some people i know still have a 5 year old standard HD tv (1366x768) and still have a dvd player connected to it, and still buy or hire dvd movies.
fact is, a commercial dvd will upscale and play beautifully on a HD tv, even a full HD tv, and while people are happy with this, there is no way they will move on.
now, i am a videographer, i shoot weddings, and i never burn any wedding to bluray disc, because none of my clients want it, for the reason i gave above.
i shoot my videos in 1080/50p avchd (mts) and after editing, i mux the video to 1080/50p in an MP4 container (for better playback support) which doesnt re-encode the video, and the client is given a copy of their video, and the original camera files on a 500gb usb powered portable hdd to play back on their HD tv because al HD tv's now have its own built in media player.
oddly, every now and then a client will ask me to convert the video to dvd for some of their family or friends because they still have older tv's and dvd players to watch the video on.
so, where does all this leave 4k format, well if bluray still has not become mainstream, 4k most definately wont ever become the future standard.
heck, if i thought 4k was going to be the future for consumer use, i would already be shooting weddings on a 4k Black Magic Cinema Camera in very high bitrte ProRes or RawDNG format.
isnt going to happen while people still have dvd players......cheers
