TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer is a high-speed video cutting tool focusing on MPEG video file formats. The product is designed so that you can cut videos with great speed and detail, and also incorporates the "Smart Rendering" function which makes super-fast output with practically no loss in quality. In addition to MPEG-1/2 and H.264/AVC, this version newly supports H.265/HEVC - a new format for the 4K and 8K generation. With an aim on increased Smart Rendering support, this tool takes a "back to basics" approach, focusing on faster and smoother video editing. It not only reconsiders the internal processing but also pursues to optimize elements other than programming such as the seeking procedure, the cutting order and other functions. One new feature, the Production Tool, is developed for your advanced preparation for editing, which allows you to perform the Commercial Candidate Detector and Indexing for Seeking functions automatically. Also including a Blu-ray BDAV authoring function, this new product can grant amazingly high-speed, high quality cut-editing and outputting.

All features

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.
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 MPEG Smart Renderer 5 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.

Supported Formats - Now Supports H.265/HEVC
TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 supports the smart-rendering of the MPEG-2 Video format which is used for DVD-Video, the H.264/AVC format which is for websites such as YouTube, devices such as smartphones, AVCHD camcorders, and the "H.265/HEVC" format which is newly supported and the successor to H.264/AVC and is the latest video compression standard. TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 is great for editing AVCHD or XAVC camcorder recoding videos, Blu-ray disc videos, web videos, and more.
* Some supported format files may not be smart-rendered depending on the video parameters, etc.
TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 does not have the functions for compressing whole video files, nor for changing the resolution. If you want those functions, please consider our multi video encoder, "TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works 6".
Joins files "Smartly."
File Connecting - Ultra Fast and High Quality.
TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5'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.

Rescue Clip Function - Encodes in High Quality
Even for Non-Smart Renderable Videos.
Simply put, no smart rendering problems will occur when importing files which were recorded by the same device since the video parameters are the same. However, importing multiple clips that have different parameters (such as resolution) from each other requires adopting the different parameters which cannot be smart rendered. In such cases, TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 can analyze and reflect the files which have different parameters as a "Rescue Clip", and can join and output in high quality using the integrated high-definition encoder.

* Only supported MPEG formats can be input into TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 as a Rescue Clip.
At least one video file must be smart renderable per project.
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 MPEG Smart Renderer 5 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.

Incorporates the "x265" which is constantly evolving as an open source product. Its quality and encoding speed are also commended worldwide.
AAC Audio

AAC audio is used in a number of video formats such as MPEG-2 TS and MP4. Incorporates the high-quality AAC audio encoding engine by Fraunhofer IIS for all AAC encoding during output, which is known particularly for sound quality. There is no compromise for the audio quality as well as the video quality.
Diverse Container Support.
MXF container is now supported.
TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 supports popular containers which contain the supporting video formats (MPEG-1/2, H.264/AVC and H.265/HEVC) for input and output. This version further supports importing MXF containers, which widens the possibities of editing even further.

* Selectable container is restricted depending on the imported video format and container type.
* Some files cannot be imported depending on the container construction.
Output Conforming to the Standards Such as Blu-ray and AVCHD.
If an imported file has the video format and parameters meeting the standards or the regulations, TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 can output the file conforming to the Blu-ray (BDMV/BDAV) or AVCHD standards. Use the output files as materials in separate authoring software such as our TMPGEnc Authoring Works 5. As a plus, you can verify possible output targets based on the clip's parameters in the Target Indicator function in the Clip Properties.

XAVC S Output Support.
Supports importing and outputting 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. The output file can be played on XAVC S playback supported devices.

* Requires an imported video format which conforms to the XAVC S standard.
* Some devices may not play the output file which was created by external software. Please refer to your device's user manual or contact the device maker before use.
* There is no authoring function other than Blu-ray (BDAV) in TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5. Blu-ray (BDMV) or AVCHD authoring requires separate authoring software such as our TMPGEnc Authoring Works 5.
Blu-ray (BDAV) Authoring Support.
TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 is capable of authoring the edited video files to the Blu-ray in BDAV format*1, and allows you to burn it to disk. Furthermore, it features an append function that appends the output to an already recorded BD-R or BD-RE media. Not only great for watching your video, it can also help to reduce your hard disk used space, or you can use it for material archives and other uses.

* When using the Blu-ray authoring function, the imported file is required to conformed to the Blu-ray (BDAV) standard.
*1 The "BDAV" Blu-ray standard does not support menus. If you want to create a Blu-ray with menus (BDMV) standard, please consider to use our TMPGEnc Authoring Works 5 application.
As a Special Tool for Cutting and Smart Rendering,
We've Polished the Editing Function and the Interface.
Implement the Shortest Editing Workflow.
TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 reduces complicated processes and procedures, and provides an incredible interface which is capable of cutting, editing and reaching the output in the quickest time by adhering to the simple workflow of Import, Edit, Settings and Output.

Clip Input Becomes More Convenient and Comfortable.
Title/Multi Stream Analyzer - Post-application supported.
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 MPEG Smart Renderer 5 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.
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.
* Only supports DVD-video, Blu-ray, and AVCHD authoring data. A general MPEG file is not supported.
ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver: Copyright © 2004-2015 Olof Lagerkvist.
10-bit 4:4:4 H.264/AVC Input and Output Support.
TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 is capable of importing the H.264/AVC High Intra 4:4:4 profile and output using smart-rendering. This allows you to output in high quality and not be affected by the limitations of the profile.
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 MPEG Smart Renderer 5 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.

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 MPEG Smart Renderer 5, 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 MPEG Smart Renderer 5 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.

Faster Enhanced Drag Seeking.
Even Faster with Index for Seeking.
Drag seeking is one of most frequently used functions in cut editing. In this version, the drag seeking implements even faster seeking with an improved algorithm. Also, by using it together with "indexing for seeking," which creates position point data of an imported clip, it allows you to seek easier and faster compared to older versions.

* The indexing for seeking can be set to automatic or manual.
Clip Splitting - Evolved.
Now With Real-time Registering.
Adding to the Batch Cut function which allows you to cut many scenes at once by specifying arbitrary split points, TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 further allows you to register an arbitrary split range as a clip in real time. You can also specify the clip splitting method in advance in this version, which can reduce the editing time even more.

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.

Flexible Preview Control Focused on the 8K Era.
The Preview panel of TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 allows you to zoom-in, zoom-out and even drag and reposition the preview image to your liking. This allows you to examine fine details in your video in real-time while playing.

source movie: © copyright 2008, Blender Foundation |
Displays Current Frame Information in Real-time.
TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 can display the current frame number and time in the preview area. The current frame picture type information (I / P / B frame) is also displayed, which is useful to verify and reduce the re-encoded ranges.

Cannot be displayed in the Title Edit window.
source movie: © copyright 2008, Blender Foundation |
Player Controller Undocking Support.
TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 supports undocking the player control panel, which allows you to place the panel anywhere you want. You can control the position and setting depending on your editing situation.

source movie: © copyright 2008, Blender Foundation |
Keyframe List Preset Support.
Setting the cut points repeatedly for video sources which have the same unwanted ranges such as commercials is a waste of your time. To resolve this, TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 allows you to register the current keyframe list as a preset, allowing you to reuse the preset for other clips, thus reducing repetitive work.

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 MPEG Smart Renderer 5 supports H.265/HEVC hardware decoding of those functions.
* Acceleration cannot be guaranteed in all environments.
* Requires a compatible environment.
AMD Media SDK Hardware Decoder Support.
With TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 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.
Multiple Title Addition Support.
This "Title" function is capable of adding a description or a title to your video where you can customize the layout and use any font on your computer. In TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5, it is possible to add titles to several ranges in a clip.

* Cannot be used as subtitles for DVD-Video or Blu-ray.
* Portions of the video with text overlays will be re-encoded.
Detect Commercials For Easy Editing.
TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 supports the "Commercial Candidates Detector" which analyzes several elements in a clip such as audio and scene change positions, and detects the most likely candidate positions of commercials. Utilizing this function together with the Batch Cut function further saves editing time. The "Pre-commercial Candidates Detection" function is also incorporated in this application, which can analyze multiple clips in the background without opening the clip editing window. Even if there are clips being analyzed, you can edit another clip normally, so you can use your time efficiently.

* The "Batch Cut function" allows you to cut color coded sections of clips (either blue or orange) all at once.
* While the pre-commercial detection function is running, you cannot edit transitions or move to the output settings screen.
Output Settings - No Special Knowledge Needed.
We've excluded as much unnecessary information as possible in the output settings and organized it into a simplified layout. You can see all of the streams in the selected clip including labels for streams that will be re-encoded or have filters applied to them, which makes it easy to see what will happen to each clip upon output.

Choose According to Your Purpose.
In TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5, the selectable output targets (MP4, MKV, AVCHD, etc.) and the related settings for clips are automatically set by detecting the properties of the Master or other clips. The first displayed setting is the most basic recommendation, so you can process the output even if you don't have special video knowledge. If unselectable targets are displayed, the reason why it's unselectable will be displayed so you can verify whether there is a problem in the imported video.

Simplified Video and Audio Settings.
Since the parameter settings (including most internal detailed settings) for video and audio are automatically optimized and processed by the application's engine, you can use the basic settings without any changes. Of course, if you want, you can adjust various video settings such as aspect ratio, rate control mode, quality (sets bitrate allocation relative to the original source's video data quantity), and performance levels (sets precision and output speed levels against the quality; H.265/HEVC: 9 Steps, H.264/AVC: 7 Steps, H.264/AVC: 4 Steps). For the audio settings, you can manually set the format, bitrate, channel mode, and more.

Input/Output Up To 8 Audio Streams.
Supports the importation of multi-stream audio/video files which contain up to eight audio streams. This function can be used for a wide range of creation such as a multi stream MKV file or a file for Blu-ray authoring.

Change Rotation Flag
Supports replacing the rotation flag for a MP4 file. Allows you to replace the current rotation setting of a video (such as those recorded by a smartphone or other device) without re-encoding. For example, you can change a vertically-shot video to a horizontal video..

* Since changes cannot be made to the actual video streams by the rotation flag, the players supporting such files are limited (QuickTime Player, etc.).
* The imported clip formats which allow changing the rotation flag are limited to MP4, MOV and MKV files (containers). Only MP4 files can apply the rotation flag when exporting.
The New "Production Tool."
Automatically Assists With Advanced Preparation for Editing.
The all-new "Production Tool" automatically assists with the production of your video editing process, reducing your workload. The Production Tool has the monitoring folder function, which always monitors the specified folders and adds clips automatically when detected. These added clips will automatically have the Commercial Candidates Detection and Indexing for Seeking functions applied to them. With those steps out of the way, you can start your editing immediately. Since the Production Tool works independently of the main application, you do not have to worry about the operating load while editing.

Folder Monitoring Function.
The Production Tool allows you to monitor the specified folders at all times by checking them at the specified intervals and automatically adds the detected clips. These newly imported video files in your monitored folders will appear as stand-bys in the clip list of the Production Tool, ready for editing.

Automatic Commercial Detection.
Once files has been registered in the Production Tool, they will automatically be analyzed by the Commercial Candidates Detection function. After the detection completes, it shows where possible commercials may appear in the clip and are color-coded according to the confidence that is actually a commercial. Similarly, it allows you to create an index file for seeking which accelerates the seeking speed with automatic operation.

* Protected or copyrighted/encrypted files cannot be added.
Linking with Main Application.
Since editing from the Production Tool directly opens the clip editing window of TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5, you can edit the clip immediately without wasting your time. Of course it is capable of sharing clips to TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 by drag/drop and copy/paste methods, and conversely, you can add clips to the Production Tool from the main TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 application.

Other Features
Besides the following functions, even more features have been implemented in TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5. Try it for yourself!
TMPGEnc Smart Tap Controller Support.
Supports "TMPGEnc Smart Tap Controller" which is an auxiliary controller that can control the cut-editing operations of TMPGEnc MPEG Smart Renderer 5 from your iPhone or iPad. 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.

Output Continuously with the Batch Tool.
You can pre-register multiple projects in the Batch Tool, allowing you to output multiple projects at once. Some projects may require a lot of time to output because of complex HD video, or video that has many ranges 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.
Transition Effects
Apply transition effects, including 3D transition effects, to add a three-dimensional effect between clips or scenes. There are over 170 transition effects to choose from, ensuring that you can add your own unique touch to your videos.

It's ok. Does a good job of smart rendering video but it is a bit clumsy to use (lots of dialogues to do a simple task). My major gripe is that I wanted to use it to edit TV recordings but it strips out subtitles which I need (unlike Videoredo). When I contacted them to ask about this, I got a very dismissive response so I can't recommend their support. Clearly they don't give a toss about people with hearing problems.

Review by Matt on Oct 24, 2019 Version: OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 5/10 Functionality: 7/10 Value for money: 5/10 Overall: 6/10

It does everything described and does it well. It has just one failing. It does not process any embeded Subtitle Text. If you have just one subtitle text or for several languages, they all get dropped from the output. As long as you do not need Subtitles, I can highly recommend this program. But if you need subtitles, look elsewhere.

Review by NaPurHab on Apr 19, 2019 Version: OS: Windows 10 64-bit Ease of use: 10/10 Functionality: 8/10 Value for money: 10/10 Overall: 8/10

Easy to use and nice user interface, unfortunately the core functionality is fundamental lacking.
The Split Point Function lacks of "split left of" and "split right of" the chosen frame and always splits left of, which means the chosen frame lands into the wrong clip 50% of the time. Further the tool lacks of an convenient add start-end range to batch list function, like for example Smartcutter offers. Those two issues makes cutting and splitting big videos into clips for joining them very bothersome and because those issues are in the core function, the tool is not worth the price for me till has been fixed.

Admittedly, the previous v4 version was a bit sluggish. This new Smart Renderer has been completely overhauled internally and it a pleasure to use. Beware, it's only for 64-bit versions of Windows.

I totally recommend this - it now supports a lot of new file types (including 10-bit H264). The only drawback is that it still does not support DVD/BD subtitles.

They have removed the "Add title" limit functionality and we can now add as many as we want into a title/project. Let's hope the next version (couple of years I guess) full subtitle import is added. As it stands, is is a superb Smart Rendering application.
