TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works is intended for video editing and conversion. The program is very advanced and supports a wide range of formats, and even 8K video resolution. Likewise, it allows performing an extensive list of editing operations. Fortunately, there is help documentation available to help you exploit all of its features.

The tool supports two editing modes: Normal and Timeline. In addition, there is the Batch Encode Tool. In this respect, the Normal mode is probably the best choice if you do not have much experience with this type of software. It lets you import and merge a series of clips. Moreover, it allows extracting just a segment from each clip as well as using transitions between them.

You can get more control by arranging your clips in a timeline. Thus, you can make them appear exactly when you want them to. Besides, you can overlap them on different layers to create a picture-in-picture effect, for example. Good news is that the tool supports a very long list of filters, which includes Chroma Key, Time lapse and Stabilizer.

TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works uses advanced technologies and encoders to render high-quality video. Thus, it lets you perform very precise editing operations, which include 8K video processing, complex filtering and cutting. What is more, it supports practically every video format, which means that it is unlikely you need to install any additional codecs. Good to hear that there are output templates that produce video compatible with specific players, programs and video sharing services, so you do not have to worry about using the right parameters.

All in all, TMPGEnc Video Mastering Works is highly recommended as a video editor and converter. It certainly has too many features to include in a short review like this one. However, it may feel somewhat bloated for most common users. In this regard, it would be good if you could pick a less intimidating interface in case you do not want to use its advanced features. Finally, as you may suppose, this editor is quite demanding in terms of hardware resources. Luckily, there is a trial version to know if it works for you.
