    "Flexible but quirky, expensive, annoying"

    July 21, 2013   |   By plamumba

    Version: TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5.4.0.100

    Pros

    Lots of control over output, more than any other program I know of.

    Cons

    Fails on files that will play on most any other player (I've not figured out how they manage to do that) -- typically have to go to Format Factory, which doesn't have anywhere near the controls of TMPGEnc.

    Interface is annoying; was much better in earlier versions. Looks like Microsoft might have tried to design it.

    Very expensive (about $100 or thereabouts if I recall), for which one might expect some decent maintenance, updates, etc.

    Summary

    Nice control over output, but poorly designed interface, unreliable decoding/encoding management, overpriced.

    "High quality, efficient, and incredibly powerful"

    March 03, 2011   |   By Dave Dugal

    Version: TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5.0.5.32

    Pros

    High quality results.
    Able to decode and encode MKV, Dolby Digital+, and much more.
    Rapid encoding using nVIDIA CUDA.
    Exceedingly flexible video editing options.

    Cons

    Needs an Internet connection to occasionally refresh license key.
    No DTS decode or encode support.

    Summary

    TMPGEnc has been known for high quality, full-featured MPEG encoding since the very early days of video editing and conversion. TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works is their pinnacle achievement, and includes every feature, option, and customization available. Beginners can simply add files of any format into a project, click next twice, select an output target format, and encode. Advanced videographers can use the powerful timeline editor to design limitless special effects. Hardcore MPEG geeks can tweak every conceivable option to get their video output just right.

    TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 5, coupled with TMPGEnc Authoring Works 4, gives you absolutely everything you need to create professional video from start to finish.

    "Not Worth Buying"

    January 08, 2011   |   By stuckindos

    Version: TMPGEnc XPress 4.7.8.309

    Pros

    There use to be Pros, but that was in the initial releases.

    Cons

    Does not update or maintain encoder engines.
    Does not come with all/proper decoders.
    Does not work any more most of the time.
    Does not encode audio to anything other than stereo or mono.WOW!!!
    Uses LEAPS, which requires constant internet connection.

    Summary

    Not worth the money or time.

    "Extremely slow converter."

    December 14, 2009   |   By dwct18

    Version: TMPGEnc XPress 4.7.3.292

    Pros

    It can set up and convert more than 1 movie and record on 1 single disc.

    Cons

    One of the slowest converters.

    Summary

    I spent about 36 hours to convert 2 movies each about 1 and 1/2 hrs into one file so that I can burn it into one single disc.
    It's name is Xpress TMPGEne but it contradicts with it's performance.

    "One Of The Best"

    June 17, 2009   |   By RVDJericho20

    Version: TMPGEnc XPress 4.7.1.284

    Pros

    great quality video encoding.

    add effects to your video, cut video

    just about a whole package to encode your videos with advanced settings

    Cons

    kind of slow for me but the quality is worth the wait

    Summary

    I use this program to redo mp .MPG files recorded from SageTV and convert them to MPEG-4 and works very good. You can add effects to your video and use filters such as deinterlace, video crop noise reduction, color correction audo noise reduction, video/audio fade in plus even more.


    cut your videos frame by frame choosing your "start point" and "end point" of video

    output video to MPG AVI MPEG-4 VOB quictime MOV DivX Buray MPEG stadarrd format Super Video MPG Standard, standard MPEG and more. audio only output too like Wave, MPEG audio, Dolby Digital audio.

    before encoding you can choose video and audio bitrate of choice (as always should) FPS Aspect Ratio select video passing option (1 pass or 2 pass VBR or CBR and all that.

    I had Very nice looking encoding results (depending on source video for you) in sync video.

    I recommend this one. Thanks for reading.

    "Good Reproduction"

    November 15, 2008   |   By beyondtoday

    Version: TMPGEnc XPress 4.6.2.266

    Pros

    the program produces a nice image in a multiable of formats which is handy for making video dvd or just editing your footage a feature a lot of others don't do very well like nero and window movie maker

    Cons

    the processing time I have found to be on the slow side when compared with programs like format factory and nero recode for this reason I would say the price is a little high

    Summary

    using the trail verison I have found this program gives a good reproduction and in some cases improved the image quality as with the audio I found no real change from the orginal track. from an editing and design point i find this program to offer a little more flexablity compare to some like ulead and cyberlink software

    "simple, fast, efficient, Swiss Army Knife of video conv."

    May 21, 2008   |   By pierrebarberis

    Version: TMPGEnc XPress 4.4.2.238

    Pros

    so many well integrated codecs;

    Complete availability of all parameters;

    Template capability; Batch processing to sleep at night;

    Handles AVCHD nicely. Excellent encoders

    Cons

    The cut/Edit editor is not the best i know, forget it.

    If MPEG is the base format ( from SD to HDV ) , use Mpeg video Wizard.

    "Works great! An excellent encoder."

    April 06, 2007   |   By tkrave

    Version: TMPGEnc XPress 4.2.10.211

    Pros

    BTW, the trial download is working now.

    This is a great product if you need to re-encode video files or prepare videos for DVD authoring, for showing on the web at sites like Youtube, etc. You can basically encode any video to any other video format (there are exceptions of course, but there's a wide range of formats in this thing!). I also like all the filters, which will help you de-interlace your video or fix colors. Good stuff!

    Cons

    Hmmm.. the price? It's a bit steep but you get a fairly robust encoder. Lots of settings that you can adjust.
