I do a lot of 4K/UHD editing and encoding with the plan to transfer the outputted files to a UHD Blu-ray once they become commercially available.
I have requested an option for a UHD Blu-ray compliment output file, but just get a generic 'we have passed you request to the development' message in reply - surely this could be added, budget software DVDFab UHD Creator supports it.
My question is, can you configure the current encoding settings to output a file that will be UHD Blu-ray compliant file as you can for standard Blu-ray and DVD?
i.e. a file that wouldn't need re-encoding when/if TMPGEnc Authoring Works supports UHD Blu-ray.
I have a bunch of DASH AAC (audio only) files that are not recognized by my video editing app. I need to re-encapsulate into regular AAC/MP4 audio-only files.
I wanted to use the tools I already have for this, but since TMSR5 doesn't seem to accept audio-only file, I need to find another way...suggestions ?
I am using a trial version of Mastering Works 7 and do notice that the encodes i do come out with a higher bitrate than i specified.
If i for example export 1080p25 using the "MPEG for Blu-ray File Output" and set the Level to 4.1 and Scantype to Progressive (2:2 Pulldown) and set the Rate Control Mode to CBR and set the Bitrate to 4.0 the encoded file comes out with a bitrate of 4.3.
I see the same thing with 720p50 encodes as well, iow that the bitrate i specify in MW7 is not obeyed by the encoder. Some fluctuation is normal, but not as much as this.
Has anyone worked with this device? My mp4 files always appear in Masterworks 6 as RE (re-render), files don't seem to match what Masterworks 6 thinks is "standard" for Blu-ray NTSC standard. They work ok, but to completely re-render the movie takes a LONG time, even with NVIDIA operational.
You mean Authoring Works 6, right? AW6 seems pretty strict when it comes to what's within standard and what isn't, but it's hard to say what might be causing it to re-render in your case without any data.
I recently updated to version 7 from version 6. Previous version (6.0) was utilizing the CPU of my PC at about 100% on rendering. I noticed that the new version (7.0) provides utilization of the same CPU around only 50% (same PC). Everything is set similar for both versions, multi-threading enabled. CUDA activated for filtering. I can't find any place, where I can change it.
Anybody has the advice how to increase the CPU utilization to 100% ?
Please, help. Thanks.
the following error always appears , while encoding (in German):
"Während der Verbindung mit Ausgabeprozess ist ein Fehler aufgetreten (6)"
Fehlgeschlagene Adresse: 0x619c41a7
Fehlgeschlagenes Modul: MovieMPEG.vme (Basis-Adresse 0x61720000)
Weitere Informationen 1: 0x00000000
Weitere Informationen 2: 0x0000400c"
I already re-installed the product and cleaned all the Registry- and common files for it, as it was recommended. But the error still appears! I can´t encode any video right now. Any suggestions? Thx& Greetings! Mr_KARR
I have been searching for a modern flat screen tv that will display SD footage broadcast camcorder, tv recordings etc, with same definition as I see on my massive Sony Wega KD 32DX51U CRT two man lift TV, and have eventually found one, a Panasonic HD Tv, however any medium to fast movement displays a haircomb toothed edge along edges of the moving items.
I am told this is interlacing, the dvd player used in the shop was set to progressive, as these TVs are nowadays progressive.
I had fed it a dvd made using TMPGenc DVD Authoring Works and set to progressive, but am told just taking Interlaced and making a progressive disc isn’t enough.
Even footage on it recorded from Virgin Media Tivo box last year had the comb effect, surely that’s coming out of the tivo progressive as it presumes its going into a current flatscreen ?
I don’t see any comb effect at all on my Sony Wega CRT, just stunning detail not seen on any flatscreen until the one just found, which doesn’t better it, just matches it. CRT's were designed for Interlaced (or vice versa) I am told.
De interlace the original footage then make a progressive dvd disc again I am told to try.
Can TMPGenc DVD Authoring works 5 de-interlace my footage ? It first gets taken to PC via a dvd_ram disc then quickstream fixed in VideoredoPlus making it an .mpg then authored in TMPGenc.
Video going to a HD flatscreen can still be interlaced, and broadcast/cable TV might be interlaced from the source to save on bandwidth or because they are limited to a certain resolution/framerate, depending on what channel you're watching. So your footage from your Virgin Media Tivo Box can be interlaced if the source was interlaced.
Authoring Works 5 should be able to deinterlace your footage. In the Source stage, click on the Settings button for your track. Under the Video tab, change the Output Mode to "Encode All Video Streams as Below". You should then be able to change the Scan Type to Progressive.
You will have to repeat that for each track, if you have multiple tracks.
Hi, I had used TMPGenc to make a progressive and an Interlaced dvd, maybe I used that method, dont recall, but the progressive played with tooth comb effect on a current flatscreen played from a dvd player set to progressive.
was it that the dvd player should have been set to interlaced ?
was it that the TV was 1080p and I stand no chance of losing the combs unless I buy a 1080i ?
It gives SD quality matching the detail I see, and others can't, seen in SD using my Sony WEGA crt so I want to buy it as its the first current or not so current flatscreen plasma lcd etc technology that manages to give definition in SD as good as the WEGA, but I need to find out how big an issue its going to be with dvd's I make.
Can I fix the comb effect in the editing is my quest at the moment.
If it was properly deinterlaced, the combing should be gone or minimized. Setting the DVD player to interlaced won't do anything, I would think.
I suggest trying to deinterlace a sample clip with Authoring Works and viewing the resulting clip on your computer to confirm that it is actually deinterlaced. If it is, then you can author your DVD without worry (at least, that part of the process won't be to blame).
A 1080p TV should be able to display a 1080i image as well, so I wouldn't bother looking for a new flatscreen.
I cannot see where in TMPGenc dvd authoring works 5 I tell it to deinterlace a clip. in the clip settings I see option to re-encode output which makes selectable another drop down with interlace or progressive but I need to deinterlace then create a progressive clip. Furthermore to have a choice of a few deinterlacing options would be better as I see there are 4 methods according to another youtube video, some are not so good.
Just where is the deinterlace option to be found ?
Progressive Scan means non-interlaced. I've run my own tests and setting the track to progressive deinterlaced the video; it will automatically deinterlace the video. If it is not working, change the option for Field Order.
Like I said, the best thing to do is to do quick test and encode a very short clip and then view the output files to make sure it is deinterlacing properly.
Thanks, back at this on eve of buying TV, I can see those settings so will try that (though no choices given compared to what I see in handbrake such as yadif) or lossless in HD vid etc prog, and so to see how well TAW does I will compare to de-interlacing using another prog.
To that end, I have tested handbrake and also HD Video converter Factory 15.4 for de-interlacing to compare to TMPGenc's abilities, as certainly the HD etc prog I found gave a result matching original when I chose lossless, vbr, 25fps, PAL, and resolution as per the original (720 x 576). Handbrake on default settings turned a grass football pitch into a featurless woozy mess. Also it changed 16:9 to 1.728 whatever that was as well as altering 720 to 700.
When authoring a dvd I see the interlace or progressive option for each clip and select interlace, when authoring all my interlaced clips , and choose 16:9 (I dont mix 4:3 and 16:9 on same disc. Not sure if one can but I dont.) then comes menu then simulation then burn and nowhere do I see an option to tell it to burn an interlaced or progressive. I assume TAW sees all interlaced and knows it must not burn progressive., likewise if it has been told footage as added is progressive (my de-interlaced footage done beforehand) it will burn a progressive disc, AM I RIGHT ?
I hope this TV I am after doesnt require me to deinterlace all my footage as its going to take me years. If it receives broadcast interlaced it would deinterlace.
The interlace and progressive setting for the individual clip properties is a flag setting and won't cause the clip to be re-encoded. It's editable in case the flag is wrong and needs to be corrected. This flag setting is read by the player so it knows what type of clip it is. A wrong setting might cause playback errors in some players, but I believe most modern players are smart enough to play the clip regardless.
TAW will not burn an entire disc as progressive or interlaced unless the tracks are set that way. Each track can be set as progressive or interlaced, and that is how each track will be burned to disc. However, I'm not completely sure it will automatically burn an all-interlaced disc as interlaced. If your clips are DVD-compliant, then they should remain untouched, but if they are not DVD-compliant, TAW will re-encode them -- possibly as progressive, but I'm not sure.
So the best option would be to manually set the track settings to interlaced to make absolutely sure it will remain interlaced. However, if your clips are DVD-compliant, you shouldn't have to do that. If your output is extremely fast, then your clips are probably DVD-compliant.
Also, you can put 4:3 and 16:9 footage on the same disc as long as they are in separate tracks. If you mix 4:3 and 16:9 footage in the same track TAW will add black bars to letterbox or pillarbox the footage that doesn't match the aspect ratio set in the track settings.
I was very interested in the release of a new version of the program with support for 10-bit video with a high dynamic range. I did some test encodings and encountered several problems.
First, the program does not display and does not apply the metadata of the high dynamic range of the original video when encoding; these parameters must be obtained using other utilities and specified manually.
Secondly, my test videos after encoding are incorrectly reproduced on my new TV LG SM9800 (the TV does not detect the metadata of high dynamic range, the image does not match the original in terms of brightness and color). When encoding, the nvdec / nvenc codec was used, the metadata of the high dynamic range was set manually. At the same time, according to mediainfo, the output video file contains metadata of high dynamic range, which I set manually.
Thirdly, it is very inconvenient to work with audio tracks of a video file. When importing video, I can select only one track, while the program does not display its original parameters (language, number of channels, codec, etc.). It is impossible to save the original audio tracks (all or selected tracks) without conversion, even if the output container supports the codec of the original tracks.
Fourth, there is no dolby vision support.
I really hope that when updating a new version of these problems can be solved.
Currently using Authoring works 6.0. My blu ray file >50 gigs. My burner supports triple layer, but when I create a file in Authoring Works it says since the file is >50 gig it will create a file that is not conformant to the BDMV standard. The file is created with no apparent errors, but will it burn to the blu ray disk correctly?
I found Mastering works 6.0 to do most of what I want. I record gopro mountain bike videos. Most of the edits are simple cuts. I also like to add additional audio tracks mainly 24/96 music track and a 3rd mixed audio.
If I want to apply filters like to brighten it up or motion smoothing I have to do that in mastering works.
Can I do all of what I want to do in 7.0 or do I still need both?
Thanks for the suggestion. I downloaded the demo. I'm not seeing how to do the multiple audio streams. It may take some time to figure it out. Authoring works has a different layout and MW7 does not follow the same format for adding audio streams.
Looks like more than anything I need Authoring works. For most stuff I don't need to use filters. If I capture a TV show and in Mastering works I encode to a TS file for Blu-ray I still have to use AW to complete the job. If I use MW the file becomes twice the size and a 1:30 hour video will not fit on a BD25 disc.The same capture using just AW is like 11gigs.
So I think for the long run I may get both. Looks like if I get AW first I can save a little on MW as a repeat customer.
New to the forum and software. I demoed both authoring and mastering works. Most of what I want to do is done in authoring works. I make gopro videos of mountain bike rides and most require no editing beyond what I can do in authoring works.
A recent ride ended a sunset and some of the the video at the end is too dark I was able to use Mastering works 6.0 to brighten it up a little. Looks like I have to fully re-encode to a m2ts file and reopen in authoring works to add additional audio tracks and encode again to a BD movie disc/ISO.
