    Features for editing Home Movies

    I have used VRD off & on over the years to edit TV shows, but recently obtained a VHS-to-DVD recorder and I'm pleased that (as I expected) VRD imports the recorder's VIDEO_TS digitized video just fine. The vid quality is frankly atrocious given it began life as 8mm movie film, and then was...

    Any way to force an I-frame?

    I've not used VRDTVS4 for a couple years and only recently discovered that not only will it make mp4s from DVDs, but it will also somehow magically insert scene markers. But I've run into the old bugaboo of needing/wanting to put scene markers where there are not currently I-frames. I thought...

    Error in update screen

    As a long-time (and beta test) user of VRD from the early daze, I recently booted an older PC of mine that has TVSuite version 3.20.1.587 - Nov 15 2009 on it. Clicked on Help --> Check for updated version, and that screen showed: VideoReDo TVSuite Build 3-10-3-609b is now available. Clicking...

    Why no ms options anywhere

    Recently I edited some football games for BD disc, which in my case means muxing to Blu-ray using the freeware tsMuxeR. The format for chapters in this tsMuxeR, and AFAICT the notation for timecodes in other programs as well, is HH:MM:SS.ms where .ms (milliseconds) is three digits of course. So...

    Elementary stream output problem

    I edited a TiVoed (MPEG2) football game using VRDTVSH264-4-20-6-612d, saved the Vprj and output as Elementary Streams. When I re-muxed these to Blu-ray using tsMuxeR, the resulting mux got progressively out-of-sync until it was more than a second OOS by the end. Ouch--not easy to fix a sync...

    Stubborn problem with AC3 soundtrack

    I recorded a TV show (ATSC OTA using TiVoHD) and then edited with VRD: File Name: J:\Comanche Moon Part 2.ts File Size: 11714176788 ( 10.91 GB ) Program Duration: 01:25:19.16 File Type: TS Stream Encoding: MPEG2 Video stream Id: 49 (x31) Encoding Dimensions: 1920 x 1080 Display Size: 1920 x...

    Any way to change or add Bitrate Output option selections?

    I'm trying to make HD videos that import to Ulead's MovieFactory 6+, for output to DVD+R in HD DVD format, but it seems to want something less than 30Mbps in the header of the file, else it re-encodes the video. The next option down from 30Mbps is 20, and I would like to try an intermediate...

    Save As vs. Create DVD

    For fun today I decided to make a compilation DVD of trailers & other clips from various of my movie dvds. One was from a BD disc, an m2ts file (SD 720x480). I compiled it together with others and did Create DVD to a VIDEO_TS without any changes to Output options other than Max GOP of 15; the...

    OpenWide dialog box enhancer

    A longstanding irritant of mine has been that Windows' Open dialog always defaults to List view (where I'd prefer Details view) and the box is way too small. This free utility allows me to resize the dialog, defaulting to Details view, and even allows selection of which area of the dialog to...

    Re-encoding to fit a specific filesize

    I dunno if this is a Request so much as an Idea: A lot of my edited HD TV shows end-up being just a little too big to fit onto a writeable DVD, e.g. they're 5Gb+. I've found an excellent, fast utility called Intercom Super MPEG2 Transcoder which in 10-20 minutes will reduce the bitrate of these...

    Digital Watermark or VRD glitch?

    I captured (via HD Tivo) a recent CBS-TV 1080i Hallmark Hall of Fame program, "Pictures of Hollis Woods". Good show, so decided to save it and convert to 720p Xvid as I do w/other favorite TV. On editing out the commercials, I noticed an anomaly in the upper left corner of the image that clearly...

    Auto-save the .Vprj file

    I know that when I edit a show and do a Save As... that there is a VideoReDo.Vprj file created where the log file is--this has saved my bee-hind on more than one occasion. But it gets over-written with the very next project. Like we can have with the Chapters.txt file, how about an option to...

    VideoReDoTVS default settings

    Does there exist somewhere a list of all the default settings for this out-of-box? The Help file is not complete in this respect. If not I wonder if someone could gen-up a .reg file that I could inspect--I believe all the settings are in the Registry, yes? While I'm asking I should probably...

    It's easy to spot Audio soundtrack changes

    I'm a long-time user of VRD and now TVS, but only recently discovered that I could change the Audio Waveform Display colors for 2ch or 5.1. Maybe it's new w/TVS? I dunno but the default was to have these as the same color. By changing the colors (View\Set Thumbnail Parameters\Visualize Audio...

    HD Tivo and Too-High Bitrates

    I have a Series 3 HD Tivo which recently got Tivo Desktop capability, and my first HD program, when edited of commercials and output as an HD (otherwise unchanged) .mpg file, has an odd "racing" effect in the video, every 20 or 30 seconds perhaps. According to a post on tivocommunity.com, this...

    TVS won't handle OTA transport stream

    Maybe similar to the "coughs" thread, I have a ts recording which plays fine in Cyberlink, but VRD won't handle it, it opens but says its 27 hours long. When I QSF it, the originally 8.2Gb file becomes 144K! Here's the log, from an hourlong recording of "Cane": 2007-10-17 14:34:34 VideoReDo...

    Fast Encoder ?

    The note in the Release Notes about this... [Change] Fast Encoder: New Shift+Tools>Options, "Log fast MPEG2 Encoder Actions". Set to TRUE output debug data to the log file. ...caused me to try a search & look in Help about it, to no avail. I've had it switched ON ever since it was first...

    Comparing two *identical?* videos

    I made two recordings on different nights of the same TV show, and when the first edit had a small transmission glitch (pixellation which VRD as usual rode-thru and kept the audio in-sync thank-you-very-much), I decided to make a 2nd edit from the other recording which appeared perfect. When...

    Beta 509 works great!

    Sorry, but I just needed to get the "angry face" (incorrectly associated with *my* id) off of the forum's Summary Page!!!
