Video File Manager + Hardware Encoder = KARMA.. Plus 2



Full Version: $49.95

If the application isn't dedicated, there are things that can't be done.
Dedicated Video File Management Software.

 

TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 is a dedicated application that can centrally manage browsing, searching, classification, comparison, and more of many movie files saved on your computer.
Recently, recording or content formats are largely changing from pictures into movies because of the progression of technology such as the communications infrastructure or smart phones. Now, an over-abundance of video files can occupy a PC's hard drive, and a solution is needed to manage this continuously increasing amount of video files. That solution is TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2.


In this new version, most of the interfaces have been improved based on the feedback from the previous version's users, and provides a multitude of new and improved functions such as digest movie playback via a simple mouseover, adding chapters using commercial candidates detection, double speed playback with audio, and more. In addition, this version supports H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC hardware encoding by using Intel™ Quick Sync Video, NVIDIA NVENC and AMD Media SDK(VCE) technologies. "Linking with TMPGEnc products", "Karma Level" and other brand-new functions help refine this version to be more convenient and enjoyable.


  

Achieves blazing fast video file management by simple structures.



In TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2, your video files can be managed by adding categories. Since the registered files (clips) in TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 are listed and displayed, you can finish the classification just by dragging files into the category panel where you want. So you won't need to add tags or drag into a tiny space, you can just drag clips from the top to the bottom or the bottom to the top. You can freely specify the categories which display in the library panels located at the top and bottom, so it is possible to display the same category with different sorting in both library panels. This application does not move or copy the actual files, which allows you to classify your own files very rapidly.


  
 


Besides registering files or folders manually, TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 allows you to register arbitrary folders as managed folders. Since newly added files into the managed folders are registered automatically to the library upon library update, you can keep the library at its latest state.


  
 

TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 natively supports a wide variety of time-tested and recent formats from MPEG-1/2, H.264/AVC, AVI, WMV, MOV to WebM and Ogg, etc. You practically don't even need to install external CODECs; you can handle or playback without needing any knowledge of these formats. Furthermore, you can select a specific import title clip within a TS or MXF file, and by using the thumbnail preview, you can verify the content beforehand and avoid any mistakes.

"2" supports the following new formats and functions.

Now supports importing the "H.265/HEVC" format which is the successor to H.264/AVC and is the latest video compression standard. You can directly import and playback the format which the adoption will be expanding in the future.

 

 

Now supports importing MXF containers, which are mainly used in the professional market. TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 can also analyze and let you choose a multi-structured video file. Thus, you can import video and audio streams incorporated with an MXF container without any difficulties.

 

 

TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 is capable of importing the H.264/AVC High Intra 4:4:4 profile. You can playback the high profile H.264/AVC files natively in the internal player.

 

 

Supports importing and directly editing using the high quality video 4K/HD video format "XAVC S" which is advocated by Sony. You can directly import and watch a XAVC S camera recording high quality movie.

 

 

Supports WebM and Ogg (Video: Theora Audio: Vorbis) input. Both are open source video formats and focus on high quality video with low file sizes, and are mainly used for playing on Android devices (WebM) and Web browsers. TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 further supports importing VP9 WebM file.      


 

This version is capable of importing and playing a simple audio file such as a FLAC, MP3 or AAC file. Of course, an embedded picture in the audio file is also displayed in the player if it exists.


 
 

A MPEG-2 TS, MXF file or PGMX file sometimes contains a multi-structured video file (containing several video and audio streams) or video where there are resolution changes mid-flow. TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 allows you to analyze such files anytime and choose an arbitrary title displayed by the analyzer.


* Encrypted or copy-protected files cannot be imported.


Native Support for 64-bit Architecture.


This version is designed only for 64-bit architecture environments. Along with this enhancement, the application is capable of using an outstandingly large memory size. Therefore, operations become much easier and smoother when handling a lot of clips.
*This application does not support 32-bit OS environments.


The main interface for achieving comfortable management operations


Realizing Simple and Stress-free Operations



TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 has been improved for realizing more comfortable management operations based on the feedback from the previous version. This new software maintains the concept of reducing complex interface structures or functions as much as possible, while allowing for detailed attention which lets you handle and view clips in the library without stress.

 

 

Each of the library panels in TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 allows you to set the view type, thumbnail view or list view, including the thumbnail size or the sorting type, independently of each other. Since it can be operated by a mouse but also by a keyboard, you can switch quickly to the display which you want to adapt with the situation.


 
 

Just by hovering the mouse cursor on the thumbnail displayed in the library view, you can see a summary of the content immediately. In addition to the existing Flip Display, in this version the Movie Display mode has been added which is able to playback the digest movie of the content. It is also possible to playback the audio of the digest movie.

Since the blue-colored indicator is displayed on clips that are already viewed or in the middle of viewing, it is not necessary to memorize the clip or position which you have already viewed. The last viewed position of the clip which is in the middle of viewing will be restored when you play it, of course.

* This function cannot be used when the resume option is not enabled.


 

The library view implements the "Quick Preview" function, which allows you to verify the video and audio overview of a selected clip without launching the player window. It is capable of relocating the thumbnail position to where you want, and allows you to confirm the aspect ratio and the audio channel mode.


 

TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 features the "Commercial Candidates Detection" function which analyzes several elements in a clip such as audio and scene change positions, and then detects the most likely candidate positions of commercials. The detected candidate positions are registered as chapters and can be used in the player to skip or search scenes quickly.


 

By using the same file name of a keyframe file (.keyframe) which is exported from the Pegasys product with that of the source file in the same folder, the keyframes will be reflected automatically as chapters when reading the source file as a clip.

In the environment where a supported product is already installed, you can directly open the clip with the editing window of the TMPGEnc product through the right-click menu of the clip in the library window. You can edit the clip immediately without wasting your time because it is not necessary to launch the main application and then import the clip.

Supported Products:

  • TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 Ver.6.0.9.11 or later
  • TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 6 Ver.6.2.5.32 or later
  • TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5
  • TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 4
  • TMPGEnc PGMX PLAYER


 

It is also possible to open the registered clip with arbitrary software. Not just video players, it is capable of linking with an editing application such as Windows Movie Maker.

* Same operation as the "Open with" option of Windows Explorer.


 

In the "Playlist" category, you can set and arrange the order of several different or identical clips without concerning the sort order. Great for videos that are meant to be played in sequence or for creating your own video marathon.


 

If you want to place a reminder for when later playback or mark instantly without a new categorization, the Color Label function is a very convenient tool. Just add a color label to the clip by clicking, and you can display the same color label clips on one display section. The color can be changed to any color you like.





More Free. More Comfortable.
The All-Renewed Player


The player within TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 has been completely renewed. Not only is it video management software, this version also focuses on improving functions for viewing without any hassle, and includes lots of functions based on the feedback we received.

In addition to the standard fast forward/backward, you can watch movies at a higher speed up to 2.0x without affecting the audio quality. Since the pitch of the audio is kept no matter the speed setting, you can watch the movie within a shorter time while understanding the content. Also the player supports 0.25x and 0.5x slow playback.

* The audio is not played during the 0.25x slow playback.

* The standard fast forward/backward is up to x8 speed.

NVIDIA® NVDEC technology, the Intel® Media SDK(Quick Sync Video) and AMD Media SDK are supported for hardware video decoding. In a compatible environment, TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2 supports MPEG-2, H.265/HEVC and other format hardware decoding of those functions. In a NVIDIA graphics card environment, CUDA technology can be used for filter processing. CUDA technology uses the GPU's (graphics card CPU) multiple core parallel processing to solve complex problems in a short amount of time. By splitting many processes into multiple elements and parallelizing them, and using the GPU's massive processing power, programs can run more efficiently.


    

* Acceleration cannot be guaranteed in all environments.

* Requires a compatible environment.

     
 

It is possible to display the current frame number and time in the preview area. The current frame picture type information (I / P / B frame) is also displayed in real-time*1, which is useful to verify or analyze frames of the video.

*1 Displays only in the MPEG reader.

* Enable and disable at anytime.

TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2's player implements the "Double Upscaling" filter which is capable of upscaling the image up to 2 times, such as SD to HD size and applying the suitable interpolation with the algorithm even if the picture is rough, the "Contour Emphasis" filter which detects the edges and enhances the contours of the picture, or the "Color Correction" filter which can adjust a dark picture to be lighter. You can switch filters any time while playing of course.

* The Double Upscaling filter is recommended for all videos with a resolution of 480 pixels in height or less. The filter can also be applied to larger videos but may not yield good results on high-resolution images, and can also slow down its playback.


 

Allows you to save the currently displayed image on the player as an image file. TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2's player is able to playback by frame units, so you never miss the scene where you want to save.

Full Synchronous Playback of Two Video Files.
Dual Mode


TMPGEnc KARMA.. Plus 2’s player features the Dual Mode, which can playback two video files full synchronously. The dual mode player allows you to switch between "Overlay" mode and "Separate" mode. The"Overlay" mode where the videos are layered one on top of the other, and the "Separate" mode offers a split screen to the range or size of each video. Thus this mode lets you perform various purposes to compare video files for the encoded picture quality, or verify the result of the color correction, etc.
