Gardena, CA - January 18, 2007 -
TMPG, Inc. (www.tmpg-inc.com), the company that makes digital video easy, is set to add TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring software to its growing TMPGEnc line. Offering many new features and some terrific advancements over its predecessors, the new product is the perfect, all-in-one DVD authoring solution for any video enthusiast, whether a beginner or an experienced videographer. Release date is scheduled for late January 2007 (French and German version available Q2 2007).
Users will enjoy the many great enhancements our TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring offers, stated Kimi Matsuki, TMPG CEO. These include HDV capture, DivX authoring, multiple subtitle streams, and the ability to import popular video formats for authoring to DVD or DivX. Of course, they can still cut-edit, create custom menus, and burn projects to a CD (DivX only) or DVD to show others.
With DivX authoring capability, DivX projects can now have great DVD-like menus and navigation. DivX projects made with TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring enjoy the ultimate combination of DVD-like presentation with DivX technology. Finished products may be played with DivX Player software on a PC, or on any DivX Certified DVD player and a television or compatible home theater system.
Capturing video directly from a DV or HDV camcorder is an unbelievably effortless process with the DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring software. The camcorder simply plugs into a PC via an IEEE 1394 interface. The software then views the contents, adding it as a source file.
TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring improves format input, allowing inclusion of other types of source files. These include: DVD-VIDEO, DVD-VR, MPEG1/2, AVI, Windows Media, DivX, and QuickTime (mov, mp4, 3gp, 3g2) file formats.
Since the new TMPGEnc software can utilize up to two subtitle streams simultaneously, it is possible to create a DivX or DVD file with subtitles appearing in more than one language. It is also possible to import subtitles from a DVD-Video or .srt file, then edit them with the subtitle editing tool which provides numerous text format and layout options.
When using TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring, users are given the flexibility of utilizing either the built-in menu templates or creating their own. With a robust menu creation process, it allows quick and easy menu customization. Users can freely position and resize titles, thumbnail images, and text; create stunning motion menus that put life into any production; as well as change highlight colors and screen ratios. Then, before burning to a disc, it can be previewed in the menu simulator. While playable on all DivX Certified devices, only DivX Ultra Certified devices will have access to these advanced features.
Special Smart Rendering technology makes encoding with TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring faster, allowing users to edit and output DivX and DVD projects much quicker than other authoring software.
TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring will be available for downloading at www.tmpg-inc.com beginning late January 2007 at a price to be determined.
