Gardena, CA - February 3, 2010 - Pegasys, Inc. (http://tmpgenc.pegasys -inc.com) the company that makes digital video easy, announces the availability of free TMPGEnc_ Valentine's Day themed Menu Templates for TMPGEnc Authoring Works 4 (TAW4) owners and trial version users as well. The new templates are themed for creating "calorie free" Valentine's Day gifts and are available now.

More information and additional TAW4 templates can be found at http://tmpgenc.pegasys -inc.com/en/download/taw4_template.html.


TAW4 is a complete media authoring solution for any level of video enthusiast. It's easy for a beginner to use and sophisticated enough to meet the demands of experienced videographers. Use built -in menu templates or the robust menu creation process, to create custom menus.

Enhance any production by freely positioning and resizing titles, thumbnail images and text, creating dynamic motion menus. Smart Rendering makes encoding faster, allowing the quick editing and outputting of DivX® and DVD projects.

Take a look at the features of TAW 4:
Import Hi -Def Video (AVCHD/HDV)
Users can create and enjoy high -capacity Blu -ray format, high definition video complete with themed menus without worrying about disc capacity. This allows the saving of high -definition videos taken with an AVCHD or HDV camcorder and keeping it in high definition. Add in support for high quality 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound or linear PCM audio (up to 192kHz/20bit) and the result is an excellent audio/video presentation.

DivX
DivX authoring capability allows DivX projects to feature DVD -like menus and navigation. Finished projects may be replayed with DivX Player software on a PC, or on any DivX Ultra Certified DVD player, a television or compatible home theater system.

Fast Proxy Editing
Editing is time consuming due to greater video information in HD files. HD video files - such as those imported from HDV and AVCHD camcorders - slow down computers trying to process large amounts of information. TAW4 creates a smaller, easier to manage proxy file, from which editing can be done as with any other video clip. When the video is output, the proxy file edits are transferred to the larger original video file.

Dolby Digital 5.1 Channel Support
For a romantic video complete with surround sound, the enhanced software supports input and output of 5.1 Dolby digital audio. Now every nuance, lyric, and bass sound can be saved and enjoyed.

Advanced Slideshow Creator
Photography lovers will appreciate the advanced slideshow creator that allows users to create slideshow DVDs or hi -def slideshows (1920 x 1080) on Blu -ray Disc. Users can animate each slide with transitions and add animation effects to bring still images to life.

Other features
171 video transition effects t add a professional look to video clips; batch authoring that automatically renders multiple DVD/BDMV projects one after the other, eliminating the need to start each output manually; author Blu -ray discs with full HD pop -up menus; create menu parts such as buttons, frames, and backgrounds from custom images.
TAW4 easily captures video directly from a DV or HDV camcorder. It requires a simple IEEE 1394 (i.Link) PC interface connection. It can also import many types of source files, including: DVD -VIDEO, DVD -VR, MPEG1/2, MPEG -4 ISO/H.264, AVI, Windows Media, DivX, and QuickTime (mov, mp4, 3gp, 3g2) file formats. Users can utilize up to two subtitle streams simultaneously, making it possible to create a DVD or Blu -ray Disc with subtitles in multiple languages.
