VirtualDub 1.7 released
VirtualDub 1.7.0 experimental is released. Changes:
Build 25854 (1.7.0, experimental): [November 5, 2006]
[features added] * New "smart rendering" feature for selective processing of video around edit areas while copying as many existing frames as possible. * New audio waveform/spectrogram display. * Added option for preserving empty frames during recompression or decompression instead of replicating frames. * Added option for saving raw audio stream without a header. * Added support for the Sony WAVE64 file format, for wave files larger than 4GB. * Added support for reading and writing Adobe Filmstrip (.flm) files. * Added support for reading Maya IFF (.iff) files. Currently this is limited to RGB information at 8 bits/channel. * PNG output is now supported. * Resize video filter now has options for relative and aspect-ratio derived sizing and to save defaults. * Opening a video file from the command-line or drag-and-drop now sets the filename as default for the Save As AVI/WAV dialogs. * Added new pitch scaling audio filter. * Improved quality of "center cut" audio filter (with suggestions from Moitah). * The main window and job control dialogs now save their positions. * Opacity curves can now be attached to video filter instances. * Volume adjustment now shows amplification factor in decibels. * Filter API: Preview code preserves keyboard accelerators on preview button. * Job control: (X of Y) is now displayed in the job control window caption when the job list is being processed. * AVI Info now shows additional information for PCM audio streams encoded using WAVE_FORMAT_EXTENSIBLE. * Capture: Added experimental option to insert arbitrary DirectShow transform filters into a capture graph. To enable, specify the filter moniker in [HKCU\Software\Freeware\VirtualDub\Hidden Features\CapDShow: Transform filter name] in the Registry. * Capture: Added full-screen toggle (Alt+Enter). * Capture: Added support for switching DirectShow TV tuners between antenna and cable modes. [features removed] * The "integral conversion" option under audio conversion is no longer supported. [bugs fixed] * Fixed a case where the projected file size status indicator could overflow for very long audio dumps. * AVIs with MP3 audio streams where wBitsPerSample != 0 are now detected and auto-corrected for better compatibility with the standard MP3 codec installed in Windows. * Rewrote segmentation code to buffer data instead of attempting size prediction; this makes the segmentation more accurate and avoids dangling key frames during on-the-fly compression. * Added workaround for compatibility problems with Aero Glass in Windows Vista beta 2. * Audio displacement now works when processing only part of the audio stream. * Added warning for non-zero dwStart values in AVI files. * Fixed a performance problem in the PNG decoder on large images with a lot of IHDR blocks. * Fixed errors in JPEG encoding with pure red or blue colors. * Changed keyboard shortcut for Undo from Ctrl+U to the standard Ctrl+Z. * Added workaround for annoying Microsoft security update that sometimes prevents the help file from working. * Fixed clamping in amplifier that caused -0x8000 values to change to -0x7FFF. * Capture: Duplicate raw wave formats are no longer shown with DirectShow- based drivers. * Capture: The UI now reflects changes to audio and video sources made through the driver dialogs. * Capture: Possible fix for crash when changing formats with DirectShow- based devices due to threading issue.
