4. Ultra-High-Speed Thumbnail Navigation

Using the latest trend in graphic rendering, the new, Ultra-High-Speed thumbnail display now lets you navigate within a clip with a never before seen speed. By releasing most of the display processing to the video card instead of the central processor, the new Ultra-High-Speed thumbnail navigation achieves an incredible surge in performance and ease of use.

5. Cut-Editor Tool Tabs

Because you may not need all of the cut-edit tools at the same time, we added a small and very convenient option: the "Tool Tab". By clicking on a Tool Tab you can hide or display almost any Cut-Editor tool set, letting you organize your workspace in a simple and efficient way.

TMPGEnc MPEG Editor 2.0 PREMIUM's easy 4-stage process makes importing, editing and outputting your MPEG files a breeze with its intuitive interface.

1  Start Stage

2  Source Stage

Smart Scene Search in TMPGEnc MPEG Editor 2.0 PREMIUM is now even easier! If you've used TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress or TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring, then you know how it works: in the Cut-Edit window, simply click on the High-Speed Thumbnail Preview toolbar with your middle mouse button to automatically find the next or previous scene! The software can detect scene changes based on the composition of each frame. Search smarter, not harder with Smart Scene Search!

4. Import. Edit. Write.

5. Cut-edit your HD video and keep it HD

Got High Definition? Then why not edit it as High Definition, TMPGEnc MPEG Editor 2.0 PREMIUM maintains its extraordinary quality with no worries.

6. Cut out scenes from your video, fast and easy

Smart Rendering makes the editing process faster and easier by only re-encoding the surrounding frames versus the entire movie. Now you don’t have to wait to re-encode the whole movie for every little cut that is made.
