All-New Features
Import Hi-Def Video (AVCHD/HDV)
With the capability to author the high-capacity Blu-ray format, users
can enjoy high definition videos with menus without worrying about
disc capacity. This allows the saving of high-definition videos taken
with an AVCHD or HDV camcorder and keeping it in high definition. Add
in support for high quality 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound or
linear PCM audio (up to 192kHz/20bit) and the result is a superb
audio/video presentation.

Fast Proxy Editing
Because of the added video information in HD video files, editing
them can be labor intensive and time consuming. HD video files – such
as those imported from HDV and AVCHD camcorders – can slow computers
trying to process all of the information. TMPGEnc Authoring Works 4
creates a smaller, easier to manage proxy file, from which editing
can be done as with any other video clip. When the video is output,
the edits made in the proxy file are transferred to the original
video file.

Dolby Digital 5.1 Channel Support
For awesome surround sound experience, this TMPGEnc enhanced software
supports the input and output of 5.1 Dolby Digital audio. Now every
nuance, explosion, and bass-thumping sound can be saved, savored, and
enjoyed for as long as desired.

Advanced Slideshow Creator
For photo lovers, TMPGEnc Authoring Works 4 features an advanced
slideshow creator that allows users to create slideshow DVDs or hi-
def slideshows (1920 x 1080) on Blu-ray Disc. Users can animate each
slide with transitions and animation effects to bring still images to

Other all-new features include:171 video transition effects that add
a professional look and feel to video clips; batch authoring that
automatically renders multiple DVD/BDMV projects one after the other,
eliminating the need for the user to start each output manually; the
ability to author Blu-ray discs with full HD pop-up menus; and the
ability to create menu parts such as buttons, frames, and backgrounds
from custom images.

Plus These Standard Features
These enhancements join the following list of rich features that have
made TMPGEnc authoring software the best in its class.

Authoring Works 4 easily captures video directly from a DV or HDV
camcorder. All it takes is a simple IEEE 1394 (i.Link) interface
connection to a PC. It can also import many types of source files,
including: DVD-VIDEO, DVD-VR, MPEG1/2, MPEG-4 ISO/H.264, AVI, Windows
Media, DivX, and QuickTime (mov, mp4, 3gp, 3g2) file formats. It can
utilize up to two subtitle streams simultaneously, making it possible
to create a DVD or Blu-ray Disc with subtitles appearing in more than
one language.

Users can utilize either built-in menu templates or, by using the
robust menu creation process, can create quick and easy custom menus.
Users can also freely position and resize titles, thumbnail images,
and text, creating dynamic motion menus that give life to any
production. Special Smart Rendering technology makes encoding faster,
allowing the editing and outputting of DivX and DVD projects much
quicker than other authoring software.

DivX authoring capability allows DivX projects to feature DVD-like
menus and navigation. Finished projects may be played with DivX
Player software on a PC, or on any DivX Ultra Certified DVD player
and a television or compatible home theater system.
