I've TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5 since sometime now and I can't figured it out how to proper encode MKV with good ratio.
I want to encode a dvd (no commercial) to MKV, the source is 1:78:1 16/9 (which is fullscreen on my TV). I've tried lot of different setting but the result is always the same, I've 2 tiny little bars at top/bottom of my MKV file (on VCL and on my TV).
My settings are:
Size : 720x480
Aspect Ratio : Displey 16:9
I've tried: filter resize: Full Screen (no margin) = same result
I no offense to Video Mastering Works, then i have never used it for converting DVD's.
Instead i use DVDFab 9, where i choose the copy option (muxing) in its DVD ripper, so that image and audio gets copied to a MKV container completely untouched.
I've used Pegasys products for a long time and never had a real problem in installing the software. Today I downloaded and installed VMW6 and all I get is an error message stating that I don't have the required minimum video resolution of 1280x768, so it will not start. My screen resolution is 1920x1080, the system has 8GB of memory, and a 4.2 gig AMD processor; all greater than the software requires. I've written to Pegasys and am waiting for a reply but meanwhile would like to know if anyone else has run into this problem. I'm currently running VMW5 and and have used version 4 (long ago) and never have run into this situation.....
I have a project that needs to be exported both as a blu-ray and a regular DVD. In the main menu you can "open with conversion" an existing project. I opened the DVD project with conversion to Blu-Ray, however the menu is still set to be SD 16:9. Is there any way to manually change the menu to HD 16:9? The only place I remember that setting is in the menu wizard, and it would wipe out the 20 pages of menus I've already built.
Any idea if and when the team is going to give us nvenc support? It's really frustrating that video mastering works has it, and authoring works does not. It means if we want to use nvenc, we are forced to buy another product.
We? Most i believe use CUDA, because that is standard in many of the latest NVIDIA drivers for your cards, which i also think is just fine by the majority, because both TVMW5 and TAW5 supports CUDA.
But for you, then you most likely have to wait for a couple of years more for NVENC support in Authoring Works, because that will most likely not happen before version 6 gets released, when there are way more than only two UHD supporting Blu-ray players on the market.
Personlly, I'd like OpenCL support (which most Radeon cards utilize). I edit with Vegas, which uses OpenCL, so I went with a Radeon based card for that reason. It was a bit disappointing that Authoring Works only utilizes the Nvidia standard.

Nvidia DROPPED Cuda Support almost 2 years ago in driver 340.52. All Maxwell and newer cards use NVENC, 100% hardware based encoding for x264 and x265.
If you want this program to be taken seriously, Pegasys really needs to get their act together and support NVENC and OpenCL. Cuda is ancient and looks like crap compared to NVENC.
I am not telling bullshit you ignorant person. CUDA has been stopped by NVIDIA, and is no longer supported on newer cards that have NVENC capabilities. They also removed it form their drivers. If you have a Maxwell or newer card, you can not use CUDA, and must use NVENC.
I cannot make smooth videos with this latest firmware. I have the right pc with GTX970, 32Gb RAM and 6core processor. My original HEVC 2160p 25fps clips play smoothly in all players (WMP, MPC-HC etc.) So do my HEVC videos from another NLE (which has other problems). I have tried many different settings. H265 to x264, H265 to NVENC AVC or NVENC HEVC. Variable bitrate as high as my camera NX1. All videos come out choppy, stroboscopic. All I want is to join my clips and make it smooth. You can watch it on my YouTube channel Anders Bixbe 160313 and 160316. Is there an easy solution to this? The free space on my SSD Windows 10 C disc is 150Gb..
in 22.214.171.124, I still have problems converting AVCHD to DNxHD (QuickTime):
If I specify 709 color levels in the Avid DNxHD codec settings, I get levels expanded, producing blacks well below 16 and whites expanded from 235 to 255 (de facto causing clipping of any existing superwhites in the source)
If I specify RGB color levels instead, I get apparently correct levels, but there is hard clipping of any existing superwhites at 235 (losing whatever useful info is present there)
I filmed and edited a carnival here. It's after editing 217minutes long.
I use DVD9 (double layer)
In settings I use 2pass encoding but do I set for example 8000 kbits for average video and hope that TAW5 is trying to reach that setting with the 2pass encoding? I know that this program is a very good encoder for minimal loss of quality.
Or use a online bitrate calculator which gaves me about 4750 kbits for average
When wanting to set a minimum bitrate, you have to choose Re-incode all as bellow, works for me every time on both DVD and Blu-ray projects when i do this.
The huge difference in output time that can be experienced depends on, if smart rendering is possible or not of the video files, where then everything then is just muxed (copied untouched). My own personal experience with the video files i have worked with, is that smart rendering for me was only possible with DVD-MPEG and VOB files for DVD projects and M2TS files for Blu-ray projects.
12 hours for creating a Blu-ray sounds normal to me, that's also the time it takes for me, when working with movies that was recorded from HDTV as TS files, which i want to turn in to Blu-ray's with a menu.
But is rare that i do this, because i normally only do such projects with Christmas movies in 1080i, where i then have 3 movies on each disc.
TAW5 creates bdmt_eng.xml files for your blu-ray's BDMV/META/DL subdirectory, if you enable it to do so. However, it writes the files, incorrectly. I have SONY BD players and they support thumbnails and disc titles, but TAW5's bdmt_eng.xml file has to have the xml corrected for this to function.
The title is displayed with the xml tag <di:name>PLACE TITLE HERE</di:name>, but TAW5 doesn't include the "di:" portion of the tag, therefore, making it useless. So, I simply add it using Windows Notepad, in UTF8 format.
It also doesn't write the correct path to the thumbnails. I haven't been able to find the proper code for this, though. It appears to write the location correctly, but perhaps using the incorrect code.
This is what it writes:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><disclib xmlns="urn:BDA:bdmv;disclib"><di:discinfo xmlns:di="urn:BDA:bdmv;discinfo">
<di:title><name>AGENT CARTER • SEASON 1 [DISC 1]</name></di:title><di:description><di:thumbnail href="thumbnail_416x240.jpg" /><di:thumbnail href="thumbnail_640x360.jpg" /></di:description></di:discinfo></disclib>
The two images are in the same subdirectory as the xml file, so this appears to be correct. However, every other example of code I've seen adds:
I don't know xml, but the "./" seems to point to the same subdirectory as the xml file, anyway. Does anyone have any thoughts on things I might try to get the thumbnail code properly written? The title works find, and I've tried several different ways to write the path to the thumbnails. I've even put them in the root, BDMB, and META directories, as well as the DL directory. Notta. I can get thumbnails with commercial discs that reference an online location, but not when the thumbs are on the actual disc...at least not with the path that TAW5 writes.
Thanks you TMPEnc Team for correcting the '<di:name>' switch in TAW Authoring Works 5's bdmt_eng.xml file.
My SONY BD plays still won't display the images I include, like they do with commercial BD discs. Since I know my players DO display thumbnails when the image sources are pointed to online sources, there has to be something in the syntax of the image location created by TAW5 that is incorrect.
I *ALWAYS* want my output to go to the same folder as the input files but TMPGEnc always defaults to the last folder I outputted to. Is there a way to stop that behaviour and have it default to the source file folder instead?
First post for me guys. I am using TVMW 5 but would like to upgrade to 6 but I need to sort a problem before I spend my money. When loading an MKV video into a project it says No Audio Data. There is audio on the video so can anyone tell me how I can get it to pick up the audio stream. I don't want to be extracting the audio file in another programme and then adding it to this as surely it should be picking it up in TMVW5. Thanks
I guess these MKV's contain DTS audio, correct? That's not supported, unless you give it a little help, by using external direct show filters.
I have DTS and Dolby True HD support, because i let Haali Media Splitter and FFDSHOW (32-bit) take care of the rendering.
Does require to make a few changes of settings to be done first in both TVMW5 and FFDSHOW (32-bit) to get it working:
FFDSHOW Audio decoder configuration Codecs:
TrueHD change to libavcodec
DTS change to libdts
Uncompressed change to disabled
FFDSHOW Audio decoder configuration Mixer, put tick in box to activate Mixer and then:
Output speaker configuration: Change to same as input
FFDSHOW video decoder configuration Codecs:
VC-1 change to wmv9
Raw video change to all supported
Options => Preferences => File input plug-in
Here remove ticks from everything EXCEPT at FLV1 / FLV4 file reader and DirectShow file reader
MPEG => MPEG decoder, here change everything to Standard decoder
Click OK to exit, shut down TVMW5 and reload to make changes take effect.
What is mentioned above, can also be used in TAW5 to get that one to use Haali Media Splitter and FFDSHOW for rendering instead and get DTS support.
Adding to this, if you have elder video, who has been encoded with Dolby Digital, which also contains Dolby Pro Logic or Dolby Pro Logic II, then its possible to force this in to Dolby Digital 5.1
What you have to do in FFDSHOW's audio decoder configuration, is to put a tick at Dolby decoder.
Then TVMW5 will believe that the audio source is Dolby Digital 5.1
