All features

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 YouTube.
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.
ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver: Copyright © 2004-2015 Olof Lagerkvist.
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.

CUDA™ and Intel® Media SDK (QSV) Hardware Decoding Support.
Both NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology and the Intel® Media SDK are supported for hardware video decoding. CUDA technology uses the GPU's (graphic card CPU) multiple core parallel processing to solve complex problems in a short amount of time. By splitting many processes into multiple elements and parallelizing them, and using the GPU's massive processing power, programs can run more efficiently.
The Intel Media SDK utilizes the power of Intel Quick Sync Video included in the second generation Intel Core™ processors to assist the decoding process. In a compatible environment, TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 supports H.265/HEVC hardware decoding of those functions.
* Acceleration cannot be guaranteed in all environments.
* Hardware encoder may not be used when Smart Rendering and Full Rendering files coexist within the same track.
* Hardware encoder is not used when a track contains exclusively Smart Rendering files. However, it is used for the menu encode.
* Requires a compatible environment.
AMD Media SDK Hardware Decoder Support.
With TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 and a supported Advanced Micro Devices' graphics card environment, you can utilize its H.264/AVC hardware decoder functions. In the supported environment, it allows you to edit with faster and smoother video playback due to its high speed decoding.
* Acceleration cannot be guaranteed in all environments.
* Requires a compatible environment.
Improved Subtitles Editing for The Best Experience.

source movie: © copyright Blender Foundation |
Supports Multiple Subtitle and Audio Streams.
TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 allows you to add up to eight closed caption or subtitle streams (such as from a DVD / Blu-ray, etc.), and up to four audio streams. Imported subtitles data can be outputted directly into a DVD or Blu-ray as these are. Of course you can add another subtitle to the imported subtitle data, then output them.

Lets you place the subtitles position freely.
In the old versions, the subtitles position should be set within the determined layout settings. In TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6, lets you place the subtitles positon freely to where you would like to. Since the position can be set in each subtitles text unit, this feature expands the flexibility of the layout.

source movie: © copyright Blender Foundation |

Ruby Character and Tag insertion Support.
TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6’s subtitle function now supports ruby characters which can be added easily by specifying a simple tag (ruby characters are typically used for Chinese or Japanese text which aid in pronunciation of uncommon characters, but you can use it for translations as well). Furthermore, by using the tag can specify the font family or the size of the inserting subtitle text. In addition to the standard tag, you can use the SRT subtitles tag.

Determine the Flow of Your Video.
Track and Content Settings.
One of the most important things in media authoring is how the edited content will be played back. In TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6, employs an editing interface which makes it visually comprehensible for the flow of the currently edited clips and tracks, then it implements rapidly linking with the Menu editing.

In combination with a keyboard, a mouse or other peripherals, this controller allows more choices for user operation based on the user's preferences and makes editing smarter than ever.

Project Archiving.
This function allows you to save the current project as an archive file along with the related source files. Therefore, you can move, open and move your project anywhere by using the archive file without depending on the paths of the source files.
Output Continuously with the Batch Tool.
You can pre-register multiple projects in the Batch Authoring Tool, allowing you to output multiple projects sequentially one after the other. Some projects may require a lot of time to output because of complex menus, HD video, or video that needs to be re-encoded, or, perhaps your PC isn't that powerful. The batch tool lets you work on multiple projects, and then output them one after the other while you work on other things.
Dynamic 3D Transition Effects.
Apply transition effects between photos in a slideshow or between video clips. There are over 170 transition effects to choose from, ensuring that you can add your own unique touch to your videos and photos. Also, TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 features new 3D transition effects to add a three-dimensional effect to your video as an extra special "WOW" factor.

Create Slideshows.
You can create your own photo slideshow by simply specifying a folder or a group of photos. It's a great way to create digital photo books of memorable events such as a vacation, graduation, or wedding. Also TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 newly supports adding multiple audio file into an audio stream.

TMPGEnc Movie Plug-in Commercial Candidates Detector (Sold Separately) Support.
Supports the "TMPGEnc Movie Plug-in Commercial Candidates Detector" which is an extension plug-in that analyzes clips, and detects the most likely candidate positions of commercials.

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.

I've been using the authoring works 5 package for almost a year now with no problems until recently. I set the programme up using the FFDshow and Haali codec's as outlined by post 11 on this page Persen. I hadn't used it since last october when all was well for importing .TS files and outputting AVCHD to DVD. However now when I come to use the programme I get the error "Could not open the video part of the file blah blah" message. I updated both the Authoring works package and the codec packages and still no joy. If I revert from the set-up as described by Persen (post 11) it does work however I'm loath to move away from using either FFDshow or Haali codecs as they are very stable and give perfect picture quality. Any suggestions ?

I'm just a Joe Average home film maker and computer user and needed a Blu-ray authoring package as that disc medium is now my preference owning a high resolution camcorder.

Previously I used DVD Lab Pro for authoring and unfortunately that software house has not yet created a Blu-ray authoring software. Whilst Tmpgenc Authoring 5 is not a patch on DVD Lab Pro, I have found it still lets me be quite creative with menus and it has never caused me any issues like some of the comments on here.

Their Help Guide is lacking in many areas. However, if you have never used DVD Lab Pro then I'm sure you will be perfectly happy with this Blu-ray menu package.

I firstly use Adobe Premiere Elements 9 for film editing, Tmpgenc Authoring for menu creation and BurnAware for the final Blu-ray disc burn.

I finally resolved my problem with blu-ray disc pausing. I did a lot of testing to identify the problem. It turns out the problem as to do with MKV files with DTS audio. I can only assume that Authoring Works 5 doesn't handle the DTS conversion properly. When I use a MKV source file with DTS audio I get intermittent pauses. When I convert the MKV file to Dolby Digital using PopCorn MKV AudioConverter v1.87.73 the blu-ray disc plays normally with no pauses. I didn't fix the problem, but I did identify the problem I was having and found a way around it. I have tested on 15 different MKV files and had the exact same result on every file, when I converted the audio every one worked correctly. Go figure.
