Import Hi-Def Video (AVCHD/HDV)
Users can now take advantage of the high-capacity Blu-ray format, enjoy high definition videos with menus without worrying about disc capacity. Capture, save and maintain high-definition video taken with an AVCHD or HDV camcorder. Add in support for high quality 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound or linear PCM audio (up to 192 kHz/20 bit) and the result is an excellent audio/video presentation.
Fast Proxy Editing
Due to greater video information in HD files, editing is time consuming. HD video files – such as those imported from HDV and AVCHD camcorders –slow down computers trying to process large amounts of information. TMPGEnc Authoring Works 4 creates a smaller, easier to manage proxy file, from which editing can be done as with any other video clip. When the video is output, the edits made in the proxy file are transferred to the larger original video file.
Dolby Digital 5.1 Channel Support
For awesome surround sound, the TMPGEnc enhanced software supports input and output of 5.1 Dolby digital audio. Now every nuance, explosion, and bass sound can be saved and enjoyed.
Advanced Slideshow Creator
Photography lovers will appreciate the advanced slideshow creator that allows users to create slideshow DVDs or hi-def slideshows (1920 x 1080) on Blu-ray Disc. Users can animate each slide with transitions and add animation effects to bring still images to life.
171 video transition effects that add a professional look to video clips; batch authoring that automatically renders multiple DVD/BDMV projects one after the other, eliminating the need for users to start each output manually; author Blu-ray discs with full HD pop-up menus; create menu parts such as buttons, frames, and backgrounds from custom images.
Authoring Works 4 easily captures video directly from a DV or HDV camcorder. It only requires a simple IEEE 1394 (i.LINK) PC interface connection. It can also import many types of source files, including: DVD-VIDEO, DVD-VR, MPEG1/2, MPEG-4 ISO/H.264, AVI, Windows Media, DivX, and QuickTime (mov, mp4, 3gp, 3g2) file formats. Users can utilize up to two subtitle streams simultaneously, making it possible to create a DVD or Blu-ray Disc with subtitles in multiple languages.
Use built-in menu templates or use the robust menu creation process, create custom menus. Give life to any production by freely positioning and resizing titles, thumbnail images, and text, creating dynamic motion menus. Smart Rendering technology makes encoding faster, allowing the editing and outputting of DivX and DVD projects faster than other authoring software.
DivX authoring capability allows DivX projects to feature DVD-like menus and navigation. Finished projects may be played with DivX Player software on a PC, or on any DivX Ultra Certified DVD player and a television or compatible home theater system.
