Supports Blu-ray, DVD and AVCHD with Menu Creation
TMPGenc Authoring Works 6 allows you to edit, output video files for Blu-ray (BDMV), DVD-Video or AVCHD authoring (converting to a format for playback on a player), then create a disc. You can contain a maximum of 4 audio and 8 subtitles streams into your project, or even add a slideshow movie created easily from your own photos. Enjoy your original disc creation with menus which you can create by using pre-installed templates, or by creating your own custom layout design.

* 1 the maximum number of streams varies depending on the output format.
* To create a BDAV format disc, use our TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 application.
Easy-To-Use "Technical Wizard" Interface Takes You Through the Authoring Process, Step by Step.
The first thing you'll see is the "Startup Launcher" window. From here, you can choose what type of project format you want to create. Once you start a new project, the Source Wizard guides you through the process of importing your clips or photos. You can edit your project's video clips and slideshows in the Edit Stage. Then, create your menu in the Menu Stage. Test your project virtually in the Simulation Stage, and finally, output and burn your project to disc in the Output Stage. You can finish your disc creation easily without any knowledge related to video and disc authoring. Of course, you can access more advanced video and audio settings if you know your stuff.

Smart Rendering Function - Implements Ultra-Fast and Excellent Picture Quality Output.

What makes it high quality? Exports losslessly other than Cut and Connected ranges.

How is high speed output possible? Unchanged video parts are not re-encoded.

TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 features the "Smart Rendering" output function. Smart rendering has the ability to analyze a video file and re-encode only the parts that have been changed, such as cut/split/join points and sections where transitions or other effects have been added. Parts of the video that have not changed are not re-encoded.
Besides taking a long time, re-encoding changes the video/audio data; this can cause differences in quality depending on the encoder and the output settings. Thus, it is typically a best practice to keep the original data unchanged as much as possible to maintain the original quality and avoid degradation.

The smart rendering function requires that the imported file must conform to the output format standard.
Joins Files "Smartly."
File Connecting - Ultra Fast and High Quality.
TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6's smart rendering function supports not only cut ranges but also where files are connected. This allows you to join multiple files which are recorded by a digital camcorder or smartphone into one file.

Encodes in High Quality
Even for Non-Smart Renderable Videos.
Simply put, no smart rendering problems will occur when importing files which do not conform to the target format, or importing multiple clips that have different parameters (such as resolution). In such cases, TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 can join and output in high quality using the integrated high-definition encoder.

Integrates Outstanding Encoding Engines Required For Smart Rendering.
For smart rendering output, the quality of the encoding engine is held as one of most important elements. If the quality is low, then the low quality encoded parts will stand out on video playback, thus reducing the whole quality of the video. That is why TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 integrates the best encoders which results in the best quality output video.

Incorporates our original encoder used in the TMPGEnc series and is known the world over as one of the best MPEG-1/2 encoders.


Incorporates the world renowned x264 encoding engine. Widely adopted as the H.264 encoder of choice for sites such as Facebook and You-Tube.
Native Support for 64-bit Architecture.
This version is designed only for 64-bit architecture environments. Along with this enhancement, the application is capable of using an outstandingly large memory size. Therefore, editing operations that contain ultra HD editing, complex filtering, file importation, video rendering, clip copying, etc. become much easier and lighter to handle.
*This application does not support 32-bit OS environments.
Supports a Wide Range of Input Formats.
TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 natively supports a wide variety of time-tested and recent formats such as MPEG-1/2, H.264/AVC, AVI, WMV, MOV, GoPro recorded files, and more. You practically don't even need to install external CODECs; you can edit without needing any knowledge of these formats. Furthermore, you can select a specific import title clip within a Blu-ray (BDMV/BDAV), AVCHD or TS file, and by using the thumbnail preview, you can verify the content beforehand and avoid any mistakes.
"6" supports the following new formats and functions.
H.265/HEVC Input Support.
Now supports importing the H.265/HEVC format which is the successor to H.264/AVC and is the latest video compression standard.
MXF Container Support.
Now supports importing MXF containers, which are mainly used in the professional market. TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 can also analyze and let you choose a multi-structured video file, and lets you edit the audio channel map, thus you can import video and audio streams incorporated with an MXF container without any difficulties.
ISO File Direct Import and Editing Support.
Supports directly importing ISO Files, allowing you to import an ISO file without mounting it. Just drag and drop or use the import wizard!
* The Windows 7 environment requires ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver which is packaged with the application.

10-bit 4:4:4 H.264/AVC Input Support.
TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 is capable of importing the H.264/AVC High Intra 4:4:4 profile. There is no need to encode and prepare files in advance before starting editing.
XAVC S Input Support.
Supports importing and directly editing using the high quality video 4K/HD video format "XAVC S" which is advocated by Sony and capable of storing high resolution and high bitrate videos compared to the AVCHD standard.

WebM/Ogg Input Support.
Supports WebM* and Ogg (Video: Theora Audio: Vorbis) input. Both are open source video formats and focus on high quality video with low file sizes, and are mainly used for playing on Android devices(WebM) and Web browsers.
WebM logo
Animated GIF Importation.
Supports animated GIF importation, allowing you to use an animated GIF file as an editable video clip.
Improved Editing Functions and Interface.
Cutting, Adding Subtitles; Implement the Shortest Editing Workflow.
TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 reduces complicated processes and procedures, and provides an incredible interface which is capable of cutting, adding subtitles, editing audio and reaching the output in the quickest time by adhering to a simple workflow.
Supports Output Format Conversion while Editing.
In TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6, it is possible to convert the current output format real-timely to the other even if the project is in the middle of editing. Even if you start editing a project with the wrong output format, you can change the project to the correct output format right away while keeping the current editing status.*

* There is a possibility that the settings of a converted project may be changed considerably depending on the destination output format.
Enhanced Undo/Redo Range.
In the old versions, once moved to the specific editing stage, it never restores previous operation, which attributes the cause of stress. This version is enhanced in order to keep the editing history between almost all stages, which allows you to edit without any of anxiety about losing the editing history.

Easy and Convenient Clip Input
Title/Multi Stream Analyzer
This function analyzes a file at importation and allows you to select a specific import title clip within a Blu-ray, AVCHD file, etc. Regarding a MPEG-2 TS or MXF file, the function analyzes and lets you choose a multi-structured video file (containing several video and audio streams) or video where the resolution changes mid-flow. TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 allows you to use the analyzer for a file even if you did not choose to analyze it when importing.

* Encrypted or copy-protected files cannot be imported
* Subtitles cannot be imported other than ISDB standard subtitles.
Quick Properties
The software newly features the "Quick Properties" panel in the clip setting window, which allows you to verify the video and audio overview of a selected clip without launching the clip editing window. Also, you can change the aspect ratio and the channel mode.

Share Clips Between Applications.
TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 allows you to share clips by dragging and dropping between applications. In case of progressing several projects all at once or other cases, which makes your work be speedily rather than that of old versions.

Supports QR Code Clip Creation.
In TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6, allowing you to create a QR code clip automatically only by inputing an arbitrary text. You can use the QR code clip for various purposes such as introducing your web site, or recoding the information of the video. The QR code clip can also be added as subtitles or menu items.

Newly Evolved Cut Editing Interface - Easier to Use, Presice and Quick.
When simply cutting a video, not displaying and cutting the correct position would turn your hard work into a waste of time. The Cut Edit window, which is the core of TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6, brings you presice results because of our developed skills and experience. We've reworked the internal processing of the editing window and it has been enhanced with functions to support 4K and 8K high-definition editing.

No Left-Over Parts. "Frame Level Editing".
A single frame is the smallest unit of a video. TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 can edit at the frame level, so the frames you cut are the exact frames that will be removed upon output. Other products cut at the GOP (Group of Pictures) level, so cuts in those products can actually remove more frames than you want. Frame level editing also helps minimize re-encoding during smart rendering output.

Clip Editing Functionality For High Speed Editing.
High Speed Thumbnail Display + Scene Detection = "Smart Scene Search"
You can search any scene quickly simply by clicking the right mouse button while viewing the quick-scrolling thumbnail strip. Clicking on the middle mouse button activates Smart Scene Search, which automatically moves the playhead to the closest scene change.

Quick Cut Function - Instantly Cut at the Range Set.
When you cut in the previous versions of the TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer series, you had to set the Start and End points and then press the Cut button. We figured that if you already determined the End (or Start) point, the action of pressing the Cut button is superfluous. So in this version, we created a "Quick Cut" function that can cut the specified range immediately by being holding the [CTRL] key when clicking the End (or Start) point button.

Since 2014 DVD and BD sales have dropped, primarily due to an increase in video on demand services. As a result, good DVD and BD authoring software has become scarce. I used Sony DVD Architect in the past up until version 6, but after it was acquired by MAGIX, their version 7 was the last, unfortunately. While I primarily produced DVDs and found a good alternative in DVD Styler, it was more of a problem to find a good and reliable BD authoring tool. After long searching and comparing, I decided to try TMPGenc Authoring Works. I knew TMPGenc since their early, high quality conversion software, so I was confident that Authoring Works (TAW) would produce at least the quality that I was used to from DVD Architect.

It was easy to install the TAW trial version, which has its own license key that must be validated via internet. After selecting BDMV as medium at startup and a 120 min video, the information that appears in the TAW interface seems overwhelming at first. It took me a while to figure out the workflow, especially the chapter tool, that is under a hamburger menu on the Source tab, rather than the Menu tab. If you have never used TAW before, you should really use their online manual.

The program has a lot of options, which allow for professional authoring, but it takes some time to figure out all these bells and whistles. Still, if professional authoring is what you want, then there are not many alternatives out there and the learning curve is most certainly worth the time. So functionality is great, but not so easy to use if you're new to the software, or to authoring for that matter.

Personally, I think the price isn't bad at all, given the professional level of authoring that this software offers. After purchasing a license, a serial key was emailed to me and it was easy to replace the trial key.

In conclusion, TAW 7 has great functionality, with menu templates and a lot of options that can be set to auto for beginners, but which allow professionals to fine tune conversion and create advanced menus. Best of all (for me), TAW 7 runs on Windows 7, even if minimum system requirements say Windows 10 and 11. All I had to do was to add two dll files to the program folder. In my opinion, TAW 7 is a great alternative to Sony DVD Architect. For beginners and casual users it may be a bit much, but those looking for advanced authoring will love it.

Major example of terrible BLOATWARE more so than Ahead Nero. And why waste your money when there are free alternatives out there or better commercial products like Sony Vegas!

I have used TMPGEnc Authoring Works 5 for over two years and have found the software to be reliable and fairly straight forward to use. It is not as full featured as the higher priced competitors, but you are also only paying 1/4 the price.

My biggest complaint is that the company is very slow to upgrade their product to support the latest hardware and software being offered in the industry. An example is there decoder and encoder software support, they use six year old decoder and encoder software for their TMPGEnc Authoring Works 5 product. A six year old decoder and encoder is just too old to use on modern PC's. If your PC is a 2014 or newer model, you will be disappointed with the product because you will not get the performance boost you are expecting.
