Question - TAW5 BBS - MKV menu creation No.70074
Alpha1  2015-12-03 02:40:44 ( ID:aitjvxtmffr )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Using the disk burning portion of TAW5 I can burn a list of .MKV files to a 25 GB disk. However I would like to have a home page menu that would allow selecting one of the files, play the file, then return to the main menu for another selection. As it is now, the disk shows the list of .MKV files but once a file has started playing it will continue through the rest of all the remaining consecutive files without returning to the home page menu after each file.

Help anyone.

What did you select for "Track playback end action" in "Blu-ray global menu settings"? I believe it is defaulted to "Play the next track" but you should select "Display the track menu (or the top menu if none)" to automatically return to the menu.

Thanks for your reply. I already have the menu set to play one track then return to the top menu. I'm not describing the problem properly: I'm converting files to .MKV because there is very little loss in quality and our Blu-Ray players can play .MKV files. More specifically, when I select "Blu-Ray" in trying to use the 25 GB of the disk, TAW5 converts the files to .m2ts format (Blu-Ray) blowing the files back up to the much, much larger Blu-Ray file size. Same if I select DVD; the files are pumped back up to a greater size (standard DVD). When I use only the "Disk Burning tool" I can drag the files to the tool window and burn all the .MKV files, and that does provide a menu like structure - but there is no returning to the top menu at the end of each track. TAW5 does an excellent job in making a Blu-Ray formatted disks, but I need a much simpler method of being able to return to Menu top after each file and still use the 25 GB disk size. It just not seem possible in TAW5 to do so it seems.

Then, TAW5 is not exactly the tool you are looking for. Maybe something like this will be more helpful.

I have never used the utility above, and am unsure if the top menu will properly play on your blu-ray player, tho'.

Request - TVMW6 - Keyboard shortcuts No.70072
Sergey  2015-12-02 01:20:09 ( ID:xufxt614d3m )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Why not have shortcuts for many actions from context menu on the timeline???
For examples, why not have shortcut for "Split Clip at Preview Position" action?

Why not have elementary function for any video editor as Delete Selected Range with offset to the left?

Any chance of a auto save function been added preferably before encoding. There is nothing more frustrating than spending a long time editing, then clicking encode and WAM BANG the computer crashes... so loosing everything.. I have taut my self to always save project before encoding. Due to the for mentioned problem, But I only human and I do sometimes forget.

Anybody else agree?

Thanks


tkrave  2015-12-02 14:07:20 ( ID:t7rw5rdz3jm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I agree, it would be nice.

What I do is add the project to the batch encoder instead of encoding it.
Once it's in the batch, the project can be retrieved from the batch encoder until you delete it from the list.



Question - TMSR4 - Concatenate MP4 AVC (High@L5.1) files No.70064
benoitm  2015-11-26 01:13:01 ( ID:3faynov/c9o )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

I have a series of MP4 files that were created by a Panasonic camcorder during a long uninterrupted recording, these are so-called spanned clips.
The files are MP4 AVC (High@L5.1) 3840x2160 25 fps (70 Mbps) and should be concatenated losslessly. Audio is 256 kbps AAC (LC).
Using TMSR4, I get the choice to either encapsulate the result as MPEG file or MKV file - MP4 is greyed out (why ??? I only have Master and Smart clips at input stage !) !
For the MPEG file option, I get two options for the Container: MPEG-2 Program or MPEG-2 Transport.
The first option causes full reencode ("rescue") of the complete audio stream (why ???), while the second option results in a file that is obviously no longer a MPEG-4 container, and is not accepted by my editing software.
I can of course import and "stitch" the original MP4 files together directly inside my editing app, but for some reason this is not an acceptable solution.
I really want to concatenate these MP4 files together seamlessly.
If TMSR4 can't do it transparently, what options do I have ?

"MP4 is greyed out (why ??? I only have Master and Smart clips at input stage !)"

>> Here is the explanation:"The Variable Quantization Matrix of the MPEG-4 AVC parameter does not meet the standard"

>>So this camcorder produces illegal MP4 files ?
>>Can't I force TMSR4 to accept anyway ?


benoitm  2015-11-27 18:58:59 ( ID:whrqtudrlcm )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Despite the explanation, I'm still looking for a solution/workaround !
How can I force TMSR4 to override the "illegal" Variable Quantization Matrix produced by the camcorder ?

Rather Urgent...
Thanks

You can only contact Pegasys support about this. It is true that when it comes to Smart Renderer 4, they are being slow to update its various problems. Their last update dates back to July 2015, which is not reassuring at all. They used to respond much quicker to user problems with new updates.

You could probably join (=append) those files as MKV with MKVToolnix without re-encoding. If you absolutely need MP4, you can try MP4Box. It's a command-line tool but it should be easy enough. There also GUI's available for it.



Question - TAW5 BBS - Only first 10 sec of music plays in DVD menu No.70059
furstt  Mail /  )  2015-11-23 22:13:18 ( ID:mpggkdovp4n )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

Hello-

I am using Authoring Works ver. 5.2.4.63 and I am seeing the following:
* Creating a DVD with a static menu (png image)
* I add a 7 min music clip (have tried MP3, wma and wav)
* In both simulation mode & the actual DVD, the audio clip only plays for 10 sec and...
* Then the audio clip loops over and over - even though I did not select looping in the Background Music menu

When I select the background music (in the menu screen), the entire music clip is selected and the full 7 mins plays.

Any ideas of what I can check? Thanks!


HagbardCeline  2016-04-08 12:49:25 ( ID:4c.rsdoj8lf )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]


Looks in the global menu settings under motion menu. There is a box where you control the length of the motion menu loop. Just because you add a 7 minute video, it doesn't automatically change this setting to use the full video. (which personally I wish it would)



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.

Sergey  2015-11-11 03:26:19 ( ID:xufxt614d3m )   [ Delete / Reply with quotation ]

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!!!

(I work with source in 24 progessive frames per second, if this is important)
