After activation/validation is already performed, can the computer be disconnected from the Internet?
As long as no updates are applied to smart renderer 5, the software is not moved to a new computer, the computer's OS/hardware is not changed, etc., will the software then function indefinitely after initial activation/validation, or will the software require the computer to be connected to the Internet periodically in order to continue functioning?
It's not phoning in to "Big Brother", but to the company that made the program. No need to get paranoid. Having said that, it does make the program more difficult to use, but I guess it's an anti-piracy measure.
I run windows 10 and I use the Task View feature in which I have 3 desktops setup within for multitasking. I noticed MPEG Smart Render 5 shows up on all desktops and not just the one I load the program on. Will there be a fix for this in the future?
I'm taking .MTS files from a Panasonic AG-AC90 (AVCHD) and having to convert them to either an MPEG 1, 2, or 4(h.264). I have hundreds of hours to do.
My question is: how do I best approach maximizing my hyperthreaded cores (4) with the batch encode tool? I've upped the usable logical cores to 7 for my hyperthreaded quad core. Are there output settings aside from NVENC that would limit the amount of files able to be encoded at once? If I take one project of 15 clips to be transcoded into individual files (not combined) from TMPEG VM 6 and send it to the batch encode tool, should I see it encoding up to 7 clips at the same time?
Sorry for all the questions, I'm just trying to flesh out what I should expect to see and if I could be more efficient.
When I make on Audio Fade-In filter with duration just in 1 second for AC3 this leads to re-encoding whole audio track!!! Why??? This filter must take affect just for 1 or 2 seconds (depend of audio frame lenght. for AC3 it just 32ms!)
This morning when I wanted to transcode a file using TVMW5, I got a green screen in the video preview: impossible to read the file. Until yesterday everything was working OK. Nothing happened in the system happened since (software updates, etc.) !
The "offending" files are .AVI encoded with Matrox I-Frame MPEG2 codec ("M701") and play just fine with a.o. Windows Media Player 12. There maybe other AVI codecs that yield the same result, but I haven't tested.
The same problem occurs when I try to open the file with TAW5.
The workaround found is to force DirectShow File reader, instead of leaving the default autoselected AVI File reader.
What's wrong ?
Where's the problem: a codec issue at OS level ? Should I reinstall the Matrox apps & codec ? (But the Matrox apps, as well as WMP12, can still properly play the fles)
A corruption of TMPGEnc apps ? But the problem is the same for TVMW, TAW, why ???
Is there any downside in using the DirectShow File reader vs. the AVI File reader (performance, quality ?) - platform is Win7 SP1
