TMPGEnc Movie Plug-in AVC for EDIUS X Pro is a plug-in for Grass Valley's EDIUS X Pro that adds the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC output functions found in our products such as our TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works series. Using the renowned x264 engine as the main encoder, the plug-in provides high-quality and high-speed exporting by combining Pegasys' proprietary technology with the x264 encoder's functions and numerous detailed parameters. Hardware encoding is also an option if Intel® Media SDK (Quick Sync Video) hardware is present.

By adding this Plug-in to your EDIUS station, you can use it to access the detailed settings of the encoder engine used in Pegasys' products. From the file output, you can now choose from a container such as MP4, TS or MKV, or generate Elementary streams containing video along with Dolby Digital or MPEG-2 AAC audio. In addition to the manual settings, you can also choose preset templates for Blu-ray video, AVCHD, mobile device or other file output. Even without any technical knowledge, you can generate standard compliant video just by selecting a template.

The centralized settings screen gives you detailed access to alter your output settings. Configure stream type, GOP structure, quantization matrix, color space and set your level up to 6.2, the profile corresponding to 8k resolution (8192×4352). Detailed settings for H.264/AVC has common options organized in one tab for quickly accessing standard output settings. Since many settings have a high degree of freedom and adjustability, the related items will dynamically change while keeping its parameters in correspondence with the selected video standard. Therefore, you won't output a non-standard file unknowingly, allowing you to utilize the wide variety of settings without worry.
