The software is optimized for Intel™ dual and quad core processors. The product will be available in early September for purchase by download at for the introductory price of $48.95 (regular price $64.95).

"Our TMPGEnc MPEG Editor 2.0 PREMIUM offers a host of new features. It is also a winner of the "Vector Proregi" award for the Animation/DVD category from Vector, one of the largest ESD websites in Japan," commented TMPG Inc. CEO Kimi Matsuki.

"Now users can capture high definition and other digital video directly from many sources to quickly edit and add transitions between clips. It is Windows Vista Aero™ compatible and has a robust new interface, which combined with DirectX powered thumbnail navigation makes digital editing easier than ever before," added Matsuki.

High Definition Video Editing
Quickly cut edit in high definition - the Smart Rendering feature makes the editing process faster and easier by only re-encoding the surrounding frames versus the entire movie. Users can capture video directly from a HDV camcorder to TMPGEnc MPEG Editor 2.0 PREMIUM via an i.LINK/IEEE 1394 interface.

Windows Vista Aero™
Experience a next-generation desktop through the Windows® Vista Premium, Business, or Ultimate edition. Use all features of Windows Aero™, such as translucent windows and better text rendering. Windows XP is also supported

Improved User Interface
The streamlined graphical user interface has added functionality in the Clip Edit window. Users can now expand or collapse various toolbars to increase/decrease preview area size or hide tools not in use. Navigate video clips with the DirectX powered thumbnail navigation. The software utilizes the video processor’s power to navigate clips at ultra-fast speeds. And with the Smart Scene Search™ feature, where users can quickly find the next or previous scene change, searching for that one scene during video editing has never been easier.

Video Transition Effects
A new feature is the ability to choose from 51 different video transition effects between clips. Select transitions such as Fade In/Out, Slide-In/Out, Vertical Blinds, and more! A simple transition editor allows users to choose a transition effect, set the duration, and preview the video.

DVD Recorder Editing
The software allows DVD recorder users to import footage directly into MPEG Editor 2.0.PREMIUM. Remove commercials or unwanted scenes and play the file back on a DVD recorder since the software processes video with virtually no re-encoding.

VRCopy Tool
Powered by Panasonic and Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd., the VRCopy tool allows users to read and write to DVD-RAM discs. Many DVD recorders use DVD-RAM discs; the VRCopy tool can be used to import content so it can be edited and then output it back to a DVD-RAM disc.

Smart Rendering
Smooth-cut editing is assured with advanced Smart Rendering technology, which only re-encodes edited frames instead of the entire movie. It solves the problem of "too much content, not enough storage space." Users specify a file's desired final output size while maintaining the video's original quality.
