I was wondering if it`s possible to make 25fps the default for encoding etc as the majority of our encodes are to this frame rate. It`s a bit of a hassle to have to change it from 30fps every time we do a new encode. Perhaps a setting in preferences to set the default framerate.
I try to import file with *.mxf extension and get a message that file has not video. File created in Adobe Premiere Pro СС2017 with codec Avid DNxHD 120 1920x1080 50i. Other mxf files with other codecs is importing normally
I have a lot of clips that are upside down.
I use the "Rotate" filter to rotate 180 degrees.
Then I want to cut/edit the rotated clips, but when I go to Cut/Edit, the clips are inverted again.
Can I make the filter stick when I go to cut/edit?
The workaround is to render out the rotated clips and then re-import them to cut/edit.
But I wonder if I can do both the rotation and cut/edit in the same session?
I think the easiest way is to use another program to change the rotation setting in the video's metadata before you bring it into TVMW6.
Try out movierotator.com for a program that can change the setting without having to re-encode.
Did you make chapters in your video? If not, you'll need to go to the clip editor and add your chapters there. That's what the menu builder bases its chapters on. You can't add chapters from the Menu stage.
A feature that I have been wanting for awhile now is a feature to just 'Copy' the audio from the original video. Audio is normally so small, that re-encoding it is unnecessary. I believe it's better to just copy the original audio so that their isn't any quality loss when converting it. There are some codecs not supported by TMPGenc VMW 6 also, for example DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 channel.
is it possible to freeze frames for a period amount of time inside a single clip?
I have an audio-recording, which is a longer then the original video-clip. So i would like to freeze (stretch) certain parts inside the video-clip until the audio arrives at the specific marker and then continue with the regular video.
Is the audio a separate file from the video? If not, you'll have to demux them into separate files.
I would then use the timeline mode and put the audio on one layer and the video on another.
Then, you can use the clip editor to create a separate clip of the frame(s) you want to stretch.
Back in the timeline, you can then lengthen that clip to the appropriate time.
Thank you for your suggestion. I already tried that, but the effort for creating the exact frame is way to much when i have to do this around 50 times per video.
An easy way would be to just cut the video where you want to have the still-image and the stretch the cut clip to the right for the desired period of time. Unfortunately TMPGEnc continues with the original video-footage when doing that.
When I output a project to DVD, the program is only using 20% of my CPU (R7 1700, 8c/16t). I've tried enabling CUDA to see if that speeds things up, but it actually slows down the encode (only by a couple of minutes).
I had the same issue when I imported a TAW5 project that included previously rendered output with subtitles. I found the re-rendering process spent a very long time displaying "analysing subtitles" before finally outputting the lossless video. During this process it only used one of the four cores of my processor.
If you have the same issue, I resolved it by creating a new TAW6 project rather than importing the old TAW5 version. The new version ran using almost 100% processor..
I've noticed the same thing in my case too. Converting a video from one format to another, typically can take anywhere from just a few minutes to several hours. And for the so many hours, the CPU is only half utilized! why wouldn't the software run the cpu at full load and reduce the encoding time by one third?
I used for many years TAW5 and, also if with some limitations (specially on menu side), I found it very useful for my purposes.
I would like to upgrade to TAW6 but I need a new feature: leave streams unchanged (in my case audio stream). Recently I was asked to produce a blu-ray with HD audio (for some concert recordings) but with TAW5 (or TAW6) this is impossible.
I know for sure audio stream is perfectly blu-ray compatible and I understand why TAW cannot decode these audio streams (royalties for DTS HD): but if TAW had the ability to leave streams unchanged (without any decoding)? Obviously at the risk of those who use this option
I cannot afford for this purpose to buy professional authoring suite: what do you think?
I had the same request some time ago and they basically said no. I have both the DTS and Dolby encoding suite but like you I cannot afford the professional authoring tools for BD generation. I can build TrueHD and DTS-MA tracks but cannot utilize them in TAW5 or TAW6, both which I have. It would be nice if the app allowed you to select these but only muxed them together with the video at output time. I would save me a lot of hassle and make this a truly wonderful product.
Due to this issue, I've started exploring multiAVCHD which appears to allow this although their menu system is not nearly as good as TAW.
I have an MKV file with the properties below, which when I load it into TVMW6, I get "No Picture Available" in the Clip Editor and "No Video Data" in the Clip Properties. Yet, I can play this file fine using several different media applications such as VLC, Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic. The audio is seen as expected. Is there anything I can do to make this file's video to be seen by TVMW6? Thank you.

You might simply need to use a different file reader.
You can select a different file reader in the file explorer window that appears when importing your file. There is a drop down menu next to the filename text area. Just select one of the "Force Reader blah blah blah" options in the menu.
I tried submitted a technical support request but I get a message "The serial number is not correct" despite me copying and pasting the serial number directly from my email confirmation as well as the same one found in TVMW6. Seems they really don't want to provide support. Any suggestions?
I want to blacken a part of the picture over a range of about 400 frames. Whatever setting I've tried so far generates a black mask over the required range of frames but in the output video the mask moves a significant stretch from right to left at the beginning of the masking for about 5 seconds. This results in displaying partially some of the area i want to conceal. For the rest of the masking period the result is as expected.
Perhaps it is important to mention that I didn't have to double-click into the pre-view to display the mask shape. The contour of the mask appears automatically when "mask" ist selected in the filter list.
Any suggestions what I do wrongly? I'd be thankful for any hint.
Anyone here can please let me know or guide me on how to configure TAW6 to load the subtitle (.srt format) automatically with the video?
On TAW4 this was done automatically, as long as the SRT and the video had the exact same name, only extension different. In TAW6, in the clip addition windows, you have to always go to "subtitle edit", import the SRT, edit (which never saves the configuration BTW: font, color, size, position, etc.), and this is a horrible waste of time.
Any help, really appreciated.....
For foreign films, where I'm _always_ going to want the subtitles to be visible, I burn them into the video while rendering it.
I installed the free K-Lite codec pack, and using its Codec Tweak Tool, I set the preferred filters to ffdshow (the alternative, LAV, doesn't do subtitles).
Then, in TAW6, I use the "DirectShow Supported Files" filter to add video to the project. When I preview or render the project, the subtitles are automatically added by the DirectShow filters. TAW6 doesn't even know they're there, as they just become part of the video stream it's encoding.
This isn't ideal if you want the ability to turn the subs on and off, but since I'm in no hurry to learn Swahili, Icelandic, or Cantonese, this works perfectly for my needs.
