Add TMPGEnc MPEG-1/2 Encoding to Edius.
By adding this Plug-in to your EDIUS station, you can use it to access the detailed settings of the MPEG-1/2 encoder engine used in Pegasys' products. From the file output, you can now generate Elementary streams containing video along with Dolby Digital or MPEG-2 AAC audio. In addition to the manual settings, you can also choose preset templates for DVD-Video, Blu-ray video, and HDV MPEG file output. Even without any technical knowledge, you can generate standard compliant video just by selecting a template.
You can set the profile up to MP@HL with a resolution of 1920x1080. You can also change the aspect ratio or framerate settings. Moreover, you can choose the display mode between Interlace or Progressive, and also Inverse 3:2 pulldown.
Video Quality Settings
In VBR mode, you can choose one or two passes, allowing you to finely control the bitrate.
You can choose the audio format among Linear PCM, MP2, Dolby Digital, MPEG-2 AAC, or MP3. Dolby Digital and MPEG-2 AAC support up to 5.1 channel output.
GOP Structure Settings
Here, you can set the GOP sequence. Set the maximum number of frames and the number of B Pictures and the P Picture sets automatically. You can even set a closed GOP for easier editing in the future or for compliance purposes.
You can use one of the built-in templates, MPEG Standard or CG/anime, according to your needs. Of course, you can also arbitrarily change the settings.
Last but not least, you can select between PAL or NTSC, set the YUV colorspace and much more. When outputting in MPEG-TS, you can even set a timestamped 192 packet format.
Support fast encoding through SpursEngine enabled devices!
The TMPGEnc Movie Plug-in MPEG-2 for EDIUS can use the hardware encoder implemented in the Thomson Canopus FIRECODER Blu or Leadtek transcoding cards to dramatically accelerate the MPEG-2 output (especially for high-definition content) compared to the standard CPU encode.
*This plug-in only accesses the MPEG-2 output function of SpursEngine devices.
With the SpursEngine file output, you can use the Super-resolution technology to upscale SD resolution (720x480 etc) to an incredibly crisp HD (1920x1080) resolution. This can be used to mix both HD and SD materials.
