TMPgenc and FX1 m2t files

After downloading the FX1 clips (m2t) files i have been unable to load them into TMPgenc.

So my question is can any of TMPgenc's software currently work with FX1's m2t files (mpeg editor/ TMPgenc 3 Express)

Or will there be any updates/patches or any mention of support for FX1, (i know on there specs it mentions the HD1/10u for TMPgec 3 Express)

Any success by anyone in converting and burning to DVD from these m2t files?

Vegas 5 can supposedly read these files and thus let you output
them to any other format. You might want to take a look at a
product called www.virtualdub.org (free) that might read
those files as well. It will allow you to export them to uncompressed
AVI which TMPGEnc should be able to load. You could also
frameserve them from Virtualdub (if it reads the files) directly
to TMPGEnc without going through an uncompressed file.

Not to DVD yet....been viewing on my HDTV via a Roku HD1000 at 1080.

I've just noticed some very tasty features in TMPGEnc 3.0 XPress for 24p deinterlacing from interlaced....haven't tried this yet, but FX1 m2t files load fine into TMPGEnc 3. There's a time lag as the frame order and GOP structure are analyzed but all else works fine.

Vegas 5 can load, edit and output the FX1 files without fuss.... WinDVD cannot handle any 1080 resolution MPEG2, while Media Player 10 handles them fine (just remember to not have any other app open at the time or you'll think there's a problem!!).

All encodes to various sizes and formats (MPEG2 and WMV9 of 1080 30p, 60i, 720 30p and 60i) have all taken 3min. from an 8sec clip.

On that basis it would take approx. 22.5 hrs to encode 60mins of 1080 video to any format!!! And that's without effects, colour correction, transitions etc. Network rendering of 1080 source material may be rather worthwhile, though Connect HD with Vegas, and Cineform for Premiere Pro may help negate the need.....

Do you have a software DVD player installed that provides an
MPEG2 codec? Might be that your system is missing a codec to
play the footage back. It might work in WMP but not in other
applications for example. I'll see if I can run the TMPGEnc/
Virtualdub test myself here with some of the downloaded files.
Don't hold your breath though!

Anhar -
Windows Media PLAYER 10 is not a Codec. It's the latest Beta version that gives some enhancements for video (if your machine is capable).

Windows Media Video 9 is a codec.

One unusual thing in TMPGEnc is the failure to detect the audio channel on the FX1 clips!!! Easy enough to use Vegas to demux, but why should one have too......

The issues facing anyone wanting to playback HD 1080 are that apart from a very few dedicated appz for HD DVB-t PCI cards such as the VisionPlus, Nebula and Fusion HD, very little else handles data streams of bit-rates/resolutions higher than DVD standard.

Once some HD DVD players start hitting the market, I'm sure the trend will be for rapid support of HD in computer software players and encoders....for now we just have to 'suck it and see'.........
