November 4, 2020

Tokyo, Japan - November 4, 2020 -
Pegasys Inc., the company that takes video to the next level, announces the upcoming release of TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 6, the successor to TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5, on November 16 (PST), 2020. TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 6 is designed for cutting videos with great speed and detail. Standard video encoding software takes a lot of time to output. However, TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 6 minimizes the encoding range with its "Smart Rendering" feature, which is able to output video files with as little degradation as possible. That means practically no loss in quality other than the edited areas, and results in super-fast output.

This version newly supports previewing, editing and outputting in the HDR (High Dynamic Range) * color space. This allows the user to import footage recorded by HDR cameras or edited by HDR-supported editing software such as TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 7, then export them with the original vividness without any deterioration other than the edited points. This version newly supports AVI (uncompressed, Motion JPEG, Cineform) and VP9 codec formats with Smart Rendering output. Smart rendering support has further increased for previously supported formats, including the expansion of compatible profiles, variable frame rate support, and more. Furthermore, new output support for XAVC and MXF containers has been added. Other new features that further enhance the convenience of cut editing, which is the heart of this software, have been implemented. The software also includes Blu-ray BDAV authoring and the Commercial Candidate Detector function, for a complete high speed experience of cutting, editing and output.

* PQ and HLG supported.
