    TMPGEnc

    Hey Anton,

    Upon searching the web for TMPGEnc, there seems to be a number of them - "Author", "Editor", "Express", etc. Which is the program you guys are talking about for converting HQ files to BluRay (elementary stream)? And do you know the version number of the latest release? There seems to be some "old versions" listed in the search.

    Anxious to try it - sounds like a reasonable adjunct to our plight!

    Thanks, and cheers,
    Alan

    And here is a mini Blu_Ray on a normal DVD-r disk.

    Straight out of EDIUS, MPEG 1440/1080 25mbps - AC3 and into DVDit® Pro HD and out as a ISO file.
    Then used normal DVD burning software and burnt the ISO file to a normal DVD-R disk.
    Don't know if it will play in a lounge room based Blu_Ray player though.

    HI guys
    Here is a little online video tuition I made for a friend on how to render out quick Blu-Ray spec files with Procoder Express straight from a 1440/1080 HDV timeline.

    They will go straight into DVDit Pro HD no worries.
    Enjoy

    The quality is better than Encore's encoder, on par with Procoder MPEG-2 presets for BD, and a little worse than DVDit's encoder. For the speed, it is far and away the best workflow imo.

    In a 1920x1080 29.97 timeline, I edit my project (I usually do multiple sequences in a single project), open up batch export, setup each sequence with the following settings:

    MPEG (Generic)
    1920x1080 resolution
    25 Mbps Average VBR
    30 Mbps Max
    Extended settings
    Quality Normal
    Field Default (Top)

    It'd be nice if it created elementary streams, but even after processing it in TMPGEnc it still saves a lot of time!

    Excellent tip! Can you provide more details of your encoding settings in Edius? Also, shouldn't there be some way to generate a demuxed HD stream from Edius like we can do for SD?

    TMPGEnc also converts CanopusHQ to elementary stream HD using all 8 cores here, very fast

    Thank you Eugene,

    I'll be looking at this process shortly to see how it works in my system. Any information that can get us near real time encoding for Blu-ray is very much appreciated.
    How did the quality compare to using your other methods?

    Fastest Encoding to Compliant Blu-ray file

    Hi guys,

    I'm one of those lurkers in the forum who learns a lot from every single one of you and is appreciative of the technical support, guidance, and ideas.

    Hopefully I can be of some assistance to those trying to create high quality blu-ray's quickly.

    I've been looking for that perfect workflow for "near" real-time output to elementary 1920x1080 60i m2v streams for quite some time now. I was used to Adobe's way of doing things, with a 10:1 ratio of transcoding DV25 to 720x480 m2v back in the days of Premiere 6.5, and the same ugly ratio when transcoding HD footage to either HDV or to Blu-ray M2V.

    I came across Edius and quickly fell in love with its stability, speed, versatility, and best of all, its batch processing capabilities. I use MPG generic as my speed setting when outputting to SD DVD's. Yesterday, I transcoded 8 hours of DV25 material to 720x480 m2v in only 1.5 hours on my new Dell XPS 420 system (Quad core). That made my 80 hour work week worth it...

    I have a dual quad core Mac pro running boot camp, and I was able to get real-time encoding in Procoder when using all 8 cores with the queue manager (1 2hr clip would take 4 hours, but 2 2hr clips would also take only 4 hours), but I did not like that workflow cause I needed to export my whole project as another Canopus HQ file, wasting precious resource time.

    The only thing more that I could have asked for was a compliant 1920x1080 stream from the MPG Generic setting. It "passed through" in DVDit Pro HD, but that was only good for movie-only BD-r's, for authoring menus, I wanted to use Encore, and that did not like my MPG from Edius.

    Came out the thinking cap, what can I do...? Ah! Let's try TMPGEnc!!! Opened TMPGEnc, went to MPG tools, simple de-mux, short while later, elementary streams...crossing my fingers...import m2v file into Encore...Hallelujah!!!

    It took me 55 minutes to encode a 60 minute movie, and another 10 minutes or so to de-mux it. So 65 minutes of processing time to bring a compliant 60 minute HD stream for blu-ray authoring into Encore.

    I hope this helps everybody who hasn't been able to sleep because their clients' blu-ray demands were hard to accomodate on time and on budget.

    Thanks,

    Eugene
