|Version: 2.524 -2004/12/16-
||[Project wizard (Step 4/5)]: in the media pull-down selection, DVD 8.5 GB (Double Layer) has been added, for the bitrate setting and size graph.
||The formats for the project file and the template file have been changed. Therefore, project created with the new version cannot be used with older versions.
||In the MPEG system multiplexer, the max. bitrate is written instead of the average bitrate for the multiplexing rate. It shortens the outputting process.
||[MPEG Setting - GOP structure]: Even if Closed GOP is not selected, the GOP structure is now compliant with the MPEG standard.
||Image quality for MPEG-1 with long-GOP, has been improved.
||Encoding of scenes using still-image, has been improved.
||The encoding of MPEGs with GOP structure using only I and B pictures, has been improved.
||Errors related with encoding using multi-thread.
||[Output to file - AVI file / WAVE file]: when clicking the Cancel button in the [Sound Selection] dialog, the dialog was shown again.
||[MPEG Setting - Quantize matrix]: if saving an existing template under a new name, it could not be deleted.
||[MPEG Setting - Quantize matrix]: if saving a template under no name, memory access violations occurred.
||When reading empty files (zero data), it could take a very long time to show the error message.
||AVI files created with TMPGEnc, when played with Windows Media Player could stop in the middle, with the message "Invalid file".
|Version: 2.521 -2003/9/26-
||In the project wizzard, for the setting concerning the bitrate, the file size in MB will be shown instead of the duration for "CD-R 74min (VCD/SVCD)" and for"CD-R 80min (VCD/SVCD)".
||When error occurs during "Prefetch Video", the details will be shown.
||When using "DirectShow Multimedia Reader", from now on only Linear PCM, 8/16 bit, 1/2 will be accepted for the audio input.
||Problem occuring when using an external MP2/MP3 encoder. For certain settings, the CRC value or the error protection could be changed .
||When the audio was re-sampled in high quality mode, if the input was monoral, errors could occur.
||During the encoding, some "Drag and drop" files could be accepted from the Explorer.
*Note for Specification Change in TMPGEnc 2.57
|Version: 2.511 -2003/4/28-
||Adding too many chained files, would cause the program to close.
||On systems where Windows Media Player 9 is installed, reading MS MPEG-4 AVI files via the "DirectShow Multimedia File Reader" would cause an error to occur.
||Multiplexing MPEG-Video stream without a sequence end-code would cause the PTS time stamp of the picture included in the last GOP, to be invalid.
||Multiplexing a closed GOP MPEG-Video stream without a header would cause desynchronized video and audio.
||Improved the processing of the file so that, if possible, securing and releasing the memory of a huge block is not repeated.
When opening MPEG file with TMPGEnc
Because current version of TMPGEnc does not have own
MPEG-2 decoder feature, it relies on other MPEG-2 decoders
installed onto Windows system through Microsoft DirectShow
to read MPEG-2 file.
Although Microsoft DirectShow does not
support playbacking MPEG-2 file as default, by installing
software DVD player etc., it is possible to playback
MPEG-2 file. Microsoft Although DirectShow has such
structure that additional component of DirectShow extends
capabilities to read/playback other formats, however
this is totally depending on software installed in your
system, and it may be sometime unstable because of compatibility
or conflict between such additional components, thus,
we are not officially support/warrant the feature to
read movie file Microsoft DirectShow.
The meaning of movie file is,
AVI(Type1 DV format), .mpg(MPEG-1/2) .asf .wmv .mov
in this case.
Although there are so many MPEG-2 decoder
which can be installed onto Microsoft DirectShow. Not
all of them can be worked for TMPGEnc. There are several
decoder which is;
- not stable, as a result TMPGEnc looks like unstable
in previous version.
- not allow other application to use the module, as
a result, TMPGEnc can not read movie file.
TMPGEnc 2.57 reads MPEG-2 files only
with specific official commercial legal MPEG-2 decoders
made by CyberLink, Ligos and, Sony so that TMPGEnc reads
MPEG-2 files most appropriate way by operating these
decoders directly from TMPGEnc.
In this way, it improves the stabilities to read files,
but only if one of these 3 decoders installed in your
system. Other decoders can not be controlled by TMPGEnc.
There are at least 2 type of bitrate
allocation, one is CBR, the other is VBR, however, Microsoft
DirectShow is able to seek MPEG file encoded in CBR
only, thus TMPGEnc can not do "Cut editing"
which need accurate seek of file if the MPEG file is
VBR. For example, if the file was encoded in VBR, audit
or video may be stopped for a while at the point you
If Microsoft Windows Media Player can
not seek a movie, TMPGEnc can not seek the movie as
* Sony MPEG-2 decoder may be preinstalled
VAIO RX models etc.
MPEG files which can be edited with MPEG Tools in TMPGEnc
* There may be the case that an MPEG-2 file which can
not be played through Microsoft DirectShow because of
the decoder's specification despite you installed a
software DVD player.
There is a tool called "MPEG Tools"
in TMPGEnc. This tool enables to de/multiplex audio
and video or to cut/merge movies. These operations are
done in binary level, thus there is no re-compression.
There are several softwares which produces
an MPEG file which is not with MPEG standard, and such
file can not be edited with MPEG Tools of TMPGEnc ,
thus TMPGEnc's MPEG Tool only officially supports MPEG
files which were encoded with TMPGEnc. MPEG files made
by other software/hardware might be edited, but we are
not able to support/warrant the result officially (please
read the note below too).
At "Cut" of Merge(Cut) in
MPEG Tools, it uses Microsoft DirectShow to show preview
and determine the positions to cut. Microsoft DirectShow
can not seek MPEG files correctly if files were encoded
in VBR, thus, start/end position to cut may not be accurate.
The actual position to be cut may not be the one it
is displayed on the window, so, even an MPEG file which
is encoded TMPGEnc, if the MPEG file was encoded in
VBR, it may not be cut accurately. We are not able to
warrant the results on this matter as well as the case
in previous column.
The Merge(Cut) always deals scenes by GOP (Group Of
Picture), and standard MPEG files has about 15 frame
in 1 GOP which is about 0.5 sec. If the start/end point
you selected to cut is not close to the boundary of
GOPs, the point will be automatically moved to the closest
boundary of GOPs.
