Until MAGIX updates the SDK of Vegas to allow for More than Two Audio Channels, I don't see a problem using the project settings again. When the user wants to disable the audio, just use the MUTE option on the project's audio tracks before rendering.
No problem. I think what happened was just a misunderstanding in the words I chose to use. My native language is not English and for this reason I can sometimes use expressions incorrectly due to lack of familiarity with English language.
Thank you for contributing to this topic. I consider the Voukoder encoder to be of paramount importance to Vegas users and to tell you the truth, lately, independent developers have done a better job than the official Vegas developers. So I always try to collaborate with their work.
It is not impression. It is the reality of Vegas users today. Vegas was not like that before. It was excellent software. It was solid and efficient. Unfortunately the latest versions leave a lot to be desired. For that reason I am still using version 14.
To find out which encoder is being used, do the following:
1.Right-click on the timeline video.
2. In the pop-up menu that appears go to Properties/General.
There will be all the information of the file including which encoder Vegas is using to recognize and read the file.
To disable the so4compoundplug encoder you will need to access the internal Vegas preferences which are hidden by default. To do this, do the following:
1.Hold down the shift key
2. Go to Options/Preferences and choose the option Internal
3.In the window that appears, type "so4" in the search field
4. In the options that appear, go to Values and replace the value TRUE with FALSE
5.Click on apply
6.Close Vegas and Restart for the settings to be applied
To enable again, just redo the same procedure and in Values replace FALSE with TRUE.
I made a short video showing the step by step. I hope this helps.
O que outras pessoas estão dizendo
Vegas Pro 17 has the built-in native so4compoundplug encoder. Apparently Voukoder works correctly with this encoder and that is the reason why your test audio is normal without any displacement.
However, if so4compoundplug is disabled in the internal Vegas preferences, you will notice that the audio will be 1 frame deslocated in camparation with the original audio.
This is because when disabling the so4compoundplug encoder, Vegas will use the old compoundplug encoder to read mp4 files on the timeline. Many Vegas users prefer to work with so4compoundplug disabled as it is a very problematic and buggy encoder.
My first test was done on Vegas Pro 14 which does not have the internal encoder so4compoundplug. It still uses the old compoundplug encoder and apparently that's the reason the audio rendered in Voukoder was 1 frame out of step with the original audio.
I would like to help more with technical information, but my knowledge is quite limited on this subject. There is a discussion in the official Vegas forum on this topic and there is some useful technical information. Maybe that will help something.
I believe it is. But in my case it is the other way around. The audio rendered in voukoder starts 3-5 frames (45ms) earlier when compared to the original audio. I tried to use the Atrim filter, but it didn't solve the problem.
There is also the possibility that there is a problem with Vegas, as I tested the same file in Adobe Premiere and this problem did not occur.
I am also a user of HOS (Happy Otter Scripts) who also has coding tools that use ffmpeg and I can confirm that this problem does not exist in the renderings made using HOS encoders.
In the official forum of Vegas there is a discussion on this subject and the developer of HOS who also develope encoders for Vegas shows the cause and also the possible solution to this problem.
I noticed that there is an audio drift in the file rendered in Vegas using the Voukoder encoder.
It is a deviation of about 3-5 frames, which corresponds to about 45ms. Tested on Voukoder versions 4 and 5.
I took a screenshot showing the problem and I am also sending the original file used in the test. You can download it from this link.
Joelson, We all know about that!
That SeMW extension has been discussed here already, even so.
That is not the effective solution to what we are trying to resolve here!
1.This is a Vegas problem, not Voukoder.
2.This problem has existed in Vegas for several years and developers are fully aware of it, but seem not to be interested in solving it.
3.Even if Vouk develops a definitive solution when using Voukoder, the problem will still continue when using other codecs.
4.So far, the SeMW extension is the most efficient solution to this problem. You just need to know how to use it in conjunction with FX Levels Studio RGB to Computer RGB that exists natively in Vegas.
5.Resolving this issue is the responsibility of the official Vegas developer, not the Voukoder developer.
Thanks Vouk for the Equalizer filter
I close here my participation in this topic.
Here I solved this issue using the SeMW extension (free). Enable its Preview levels extension (Tools menu > Extensions), which will put a new dropdown menu above the Vegas preview window. In that dropdown menu choose "PC". You can safely render with that set, as it applies to preview only.
More information can be found in this Vegas forum thread.
In Adobe Premiere you can generate interlaced files using Voukoder. In Magix Vegas this is not possible even if the project is set to interlaced. Voukoder generates only progressive files in Magix Vegas.
It also depends on your encoder. What encoder are you using? Not all encoders can encode interlaced.
I use the Video Encoder H264(x264) with Container MPEG-4 (.mp4)
See the my screen record
The project is set to interlaced. But rendered video is always progressive.
I tried rendering a project with interlaced video. The project is set to interlaced, but the video generated by Voukoder is always progressive. Is there any way to keep video interlaced as interlaced or voukoder only generates progressive video in Vegas?
Happy Birthday! and thanks for making the version of Voukoder available for Vegas.
I have a doubt:
How do I configure the settings of the video to be rendered (Frame rate, aspect ratio, field order etc.)?
In Premiere you can choose these options
But I didn't find it in Vegas
When I need a particular video to be displayed on windows media player on Windows 7, I'll use Voukoder version 1.1.3
