Volume Normalization Reduces or amplifies the audio on all channels so the highest volume of the clip corresponds to the specified volume.
Volume Uniformization Uniformizes the audio on all channels based on the peak or average volume.
Bilingual Extracts the left (Main), Right (Secondary), or both channels.
Audio Converter Function When the source and output are different formats, first converts the audio in a high quality, internal format before sending it to the encoder.

  1. The video YUV colorspace is interpolated to 4:4:4 with the Type-2 DV codec used by our company for the AVI input. Except for uncompressed AVI, AVI file input requires the codec corresponding to the format. Type-1 DV and other importations through DirectShow depends on the available environment. For this reason it is normal some AVI files are not readable. Audio may not be available in the second clip when no more than one instance of a codec cannot exist at a given time.
  2. MPEG-1 VBR (variable bitrate) file import is also supported.
  3. Depending of the settings and device used, an audio gap may appear in the captured movie data. Use the trial version to verify the quality of your capture system.
  4. Transport stream importation tested with sources generated by a JVC GR-HD1 and a SONY HDR-FX1/HC1.
  5. DVD-VR importation requires a media compatible drive and UDF 2.0 support. For standard Windows installations not able to copy or read UDF 2.0 format, such functions cannot be used. This application cannot process DVD-Video protected by a Copyright or anti-copy enforcement systems such as CSS and CPRM.
  6. Windows Media file importation requires that Windows Media Technology is installed on the host computer. Data broadcasted live on the Internet is not supported. Files protected by the Windows Media Digital Copyright Management (DRM) are not supported. Files without a Seekable (cue) flag are not supported.
  7. Microsoft TV PVR file (*.dvr-ms) importation requires a patch for Windows XP SP1 found at the Microsoft Support Page (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en;810243). WTV file importation is possible on the computer used to record the file, or on computers able to create this type of file. Recordings copy-protected by a DRM scheme cannot be imported. Only WTV files containing MPEG-2 video and MP2 audio can be imported.
  8. Some DV/HDV camcorders and IEEE1394 (i.LINK) connection compatibility issues may prevent a correct capture.
  9. QuickTime file importation requires QuickTime 7, iTunes 6, or newer versions. (Audio may not be correctly processed in cases of multitrack audio source files)
  10. Importation through DirectShow relies on the available environment. For this reason it is normal some AVI files are not readable. Some specific formats (VBR, ogg, etc.) used may result in an audio gap or may not be outputted.
  11. VBR format not supported.
  12. AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) and Dolby Digital Plus importation supports audio data sources up to 5.1 channels.
  13. The Digital Audio output cannot be used in several instances at the same time in the Batch encode tool and/or TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5.
  14. MTS files recorded in a Blu-ray (AVCHD, BDAV, BDMV) format may not be correctly imported due to internal structure specificities. In such a case, use the Source Wizard.
  15. Creates Motion JPEG format video data.
  16. The MPEG Tool supports MPEG files created by the TMPGEnc or TSUNAMI MPEG encoder series. (MPEG files generated by a hardware encoder or other Companies' encoder may not be correctly processed)
  17. If your computer operating system is Windows Vista SP2 or a more recent version of Windows Vista, use of this function in the timeline mode preview or in the "Mask filter" of the "Filters" window requires an update. (Microsoft Website information KB971512)
  18. Encoder characteristics may vary from the Standard encoder depending on the installed TMPGEnc plug-ins or equipment. Some parameter's limitations and functions of the x264 encoder implementation are different from the original x264.
  19. Audio gap and other issues may arise when the application is used in certain conditions. For this reason, we recommend you use the trial version to evaluate its performance before purchasing it. Partially damaged source files may not be imported at all.
