TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 4 is video editing software with the remarkable ability to merge, split and cut-edit MPEG videos not by entirely re-encoding (compressing) the output like typical editing software, but by applying a minimal encode process called "Smart Rendering" which limits re-encoding to the edited points of the files. MPEG-1/2 and MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 Smart Rendering. HDV camcorder footage, DVD-Video, Blu-ray, AVCHD, and most of today's web video all have one thing in common - they're all a type of MPEG video. Whether it's MPEG-1, MPEG-2, or the highly efficient MPEG-4 AVC (H.264), you can import, edit and output your video with minimum re-encoding. That's the power of smart rendering - fast output while retaining the original quality.
What's new in this version:
Version 184.108.40.206 offers an improved Smart Rendering Engine and various bug fixes.
I couldn't even get it to work, I downloaded and installed it a couple of times to be sure I wasn't doing something wrong, but it always popped up with '..has encountered a problem and needs to close..', no matter what i did.
i tried another one and it worked fine, so i guess there's something wrong with this one. it's a shame because it sounds like a decent program and has a sensible trial limitation, but there's no point if its not going to work.
