Professional Edition Version 1.26.5

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):
Code:
October 7th, 2007 (v1.26.5)
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION

- Added a REDISTRIBUTION threshold test that limits the
  amount of low-side deviation allowed in the calculation of
  redistribution.  The default value of .5 limits a bitrate
  reduction (in redistribution) to half what would have been
  given in a standard DVD-RB encode.  This dramatically
  reduces the likelihood of getting values that are too low
  in dark scenes.  The threshold can be adjusted via a 
  hidden setting in the OPTIONS area of REBUILDER.INI. The
  value (REDIST_LOW_THRESHOLD=) must fall in the range of
  0 to 1.  Any other value results in the default of .5 

- Added a "hidden" setting called "REDIST_USE_FINAL_Q".  If
  set to 1 (REDIST_USE_FINAL_Q=1) in the "[Options]" area of
  REBUILDER.INI, a set of prediction passes are run on the
  main-movie VTS (largest) to determine a Final_Q value
  that is used for REDISTRIBUTION rather than the standard
  Base_Q.  This will add a little time to the PREPARE phase
  and some reports have been made of improved quality based
  upon subjective analysis.
 
- Corrected an error in which pushing the ABORT button could,
  under certain circumstances, leave an encoder executing in 
  the background until it completes its current task.  It
  might also result in a "Could not clear output..." error
  if an attempt to restart encoding happens too soon.

- Updated "Batch Mode" so that it will, when appropriate,
  write to blank disc.   Note that you must (obviously) 
  change discs between writes in order to write more than 
  one during the batch process.

- Added a separator bar to the FILE menu to distinguish the
  "Shutdown on REBUILD" functions from those related to
  Batch.

- Added code to limit the sample size to 1% when performing
  REDISTRIBUTE_FINAL_Q analysis.  Any more is simply a waste
  of time.  Note this does NOT affect the percentage used for
  determining REDISTRIBUTION -- only determining FINAL_Q.

- Corrected two bugs that were introduced in v1.26.4 (which
  was released as a beta only).

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.
Thanks to jdobbs for more outstanding work.

Regards

Default Professional Edition Version 1.26.6

Professional Edition Version 1.26.6


CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION

- Corrected a bug in which the MPEG2DEC_OPTS parameters were
not being applied during Q analysis. This could, in some
cases, result in an error.

- Added code to MOBILE encoding to prevent identical PGCs
from being reencoded redundantly (duplicates).

- Added more granularity to the matrix selections. Now you
can choose matrices for High (4000Kbs), MedHigh (3500),
Med (3000) in addition to those already selectable.

- Corrected an error in which having CCE SP2 installed by
itself did not activate the "CCE Mode" under the ENCODERS
menu.

- Fixed an error in which loading a project file would not
reset the "HC_FOR_REDIST" flag.

- Fixed a bug in which the OPV subroutine could cause a size
error caused by an incorrect maximum bitrate. This could
also cause anomalies in REDISTRIBUTION passes.

- Added code to adjust for an issue in which audio sync could
be off for MOBILE encoding for some oddly formatted discs.

- Changed the MOBILE settings so that any specified bitrate
less than 50 is considered a Q value rather than 31 (for
compatibility with H264 Q values). Illegal values on codecs
that accept no more than 31 are automatically limited.

- Added NicMP4Box.exe to the full (MOBILE) installer package.
This allows DVD-RB to create H264 files (using FFMPEG) in
the MOBILE encoding mode that are compatible with the IPOD.
NicMP4Box is called automatically when the IPOD_H264 codec
is selected.

- Added two new profiles to the MOBILE.INI file. These allow
you to take advantage of the H264 (high quality) format when
creating output for the IPOD. Say "yes" to overwriting your
MOBILE.INI file in order to see the new profiles.

- Updated the installation package to include HC Encoder v0.22
which includes several improvements over previous versions.

- Updated the installer to include ECLPRO v1.11.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Fixed an error in which the path for NicMp4Box.exe was not
being automatically detected.

- Updated routines so that when DVD-RB is running multiple
instances of HC Encoder the "*NOSMP" setting is used. This
has been tested to show faster processing on DVD-RB -- as
it already takes advantage of multiple processors.

- Update the HC interface so it specifically indicates whether
a file should be encoded as "*PROGRESSIVE or "*INTERLACED".

- Modified the REDISTRIBUTION and OPV prediction code for HC
Encoder. It should now take fewer passes for prediction in
most cases.

- Added a check for illegal characters in VOLUME_ID. This
condition could cause a failure to create an ISO image.

- Updated the "Close DVD-RB at batch completion" function so
it "sticks" between runs. Now the setting remains in
effect until reset.

- Wrote code to circumvent a source of "Runtime Error 52"
errors during the file copy section or "Buffer Overflow 0003"
in the REBUILD phase on certain types of corrupt sources.

- Made handling of certain sources that fall outside standards
more robust.

- Updated D2V creation routines to assume BT.601 colorimetry
where no SEQUENCE_DISPLAY_EXTENSION is present. Added a
"hidden" option called "BT601_DEFAULT=0" to the "[Options]"
area of REBUILDER.INI. This option can make DVD-RB assume
all unspecified streams to be BT.709 instead. This is
mainly for non-DVD sources. The default value is "1"
(BT.601 is the assumption).

- Added an additional filter prefix. When prefixed by "b:" a
filter is added only when the source colorimetry is BT.709
(including SMPTE 240M). This enables cases where you wish
the output to be converted, for example to BT.601. This
option is similar to "c:" but has an opposite effect.

- Corrected an error in which One Pass Encoding could, under
certain rare circumstances, select an incorrect Q/CQ value
and as a result over or undersize.

- Corrected an issue that could slow processing considerably
when a combination of encoding and extracting is occurring.

- Cleaned up a cosmetic glitch in which sometimes the "Overall
Progress" bar didn't correctly show status during ENCODE.

- Fixed an error in which Final_Q could not be calculated with
QuEnc or a command line encoder (that supports CQ).

- Improved the interface for CMDLINE encoding -- now the CQ is
passed as a floating point variable for more accurate sizing
during one-pass and REDISTRIBUTION.

- Modified the default values for PFactor and BFactor when
running HC Encoder in One Pass CQ mode.

- Improved the CMDLINE encoder interface so that it now also
passes "Closed GOP" (for ILVU) and "Bottom Field First"
(for interlaced encoding) information to the encoder.

- Made some small changes to the QuEnc interface to restore
FreeEnc compatibility.

- Added multiple threading capability to the MOBILE encoding
command line. This will speed up processing substantially
for those with multiple processors (e.g. dual/quad cores).

- Added additional checks to for encoders. Prevents encoders
from being enabled when they don't really exist.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Default Professional Edition Version 1.27.2

Professional Edition Version 1.27.2

Quote:
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Added a new hidden setting called "HC_NOSMP" to the
REBUILDER.INI file. Setting "HC_NOSMP=1" (the default
setting) disables the use of SMP when multiple instances
are used. "HC_NOSMP=0" will allow SMP to run. Generally
the default (No SMP) is faster when run with multiple
processes, the parameter is provided to let the user
make the ultimate choice.

- Added a "Use *AVSRELOAD Parameter" option to the
"HC OPTIONS" menu which will add that value (useful for
certain scripts) to the INI files passed to HC encoder.

- Reversed the v1.27.0 implementation that waits for an
encode to complete before extracting. It appears to slow
down encodes on some systems. Go figure. You can still
enable this feature, however, by adding the hidden option
"WAIT_FOR_EXTRACT=1".

- Corrected an error in which the new matrix types were not
being saved in template files.

- Made adjustments to the sizing mechanism for Movie Only
encodes to prevent certain circumstances from resulting
in undersizing on seamless branching sources.

- Updated the SCR insertion routine to handle exceptionally
high SCR values.

- Updated code to make it more compatible with emulation
such as running under Linux/WINE.

- Adjusted build options to correct for a "crash" that was
reported by some users on the previous release.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.27.3

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):
Code:
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Added a "Use *LOSSLESS Parameter" option to the 
  "HC OPTIONS" menu which will add that value (useful for 
  speeding up certain scripts) to the INI files passed to 
  HC encoder. Note: Only works with HC v0.22.1 or greater.

- Updated the ISO creation module so that now the ISO will
  be created by ImgBurn rather than MKISOFS if ImgBurn is
  installed and is of a high enough version to support it.

- Modified the HC calling module so that encoder priority
  is set explicitly (based upon the option) in the HC.INI
  file (HC v0.22 and higher).

- Corrected so that REDISTRIBUTION doesn't take effect
  when "MOBILE Only" encoding is selected (it is not used
  in that situation).

- Changed the "CORRUPT SOURCE" error message to a warning 
  and removed the annoying popup message.  Some rippers 
  remove CELLs as needed from the VOB (usually junk cells
  related to protection) without removing the reference to 
  the CELLS in the IFO(s).

- Built a workaround for movie-only PGC selection in discs
  that have incorrect information in PGC tables.

- Corrected an error in which the batch shutdown had stopped
  working since v1.27.0. Note also, that the setting for batch
  shutdown is also now saved in the INI and will "stick"
  between runs.  Older version required setting it before all
  batch runs.

- Corrected an issue related to Vista in which running in
  "Multiple Encoder Processes" mode could cause HC and other
  encoders to fail with "Failed to find and run encoder..."
  This was caused by Vista's "improved" security.

- Modified loop checks during ILVU extraction in MOBILE
  encoding so the extraction stops more quickly if "Abort"
  is selected.

- Changed the actions for unload queries to make DVD-RB a bit
  more robust in the event of problems.

- Added additional checks to ensure CCE paths are correctly
  configured.

- Updated the codes so that NICAUDIO.DLL doesn't have to be
  explicitly called out in the REBUILDER.INI file for use in
  MOBILE encoding.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.28.2

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):
Code:
CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION
- Made numerous changes to make DVD-RB more sensitive to
  the security environment of Vista.

- Made changes to make DVD-RB more compatible with some
  windows emulators.

- Added support for the HC adaptive quantization (*AQ)
  function.  This setting can improve picture in flat
  parts.  A default value of "2" is used, but can be 
  changed by setting "HC_AQ=n" in the "[Options]" area 
  of REBUILDER.INI.  "n" can be any integer value between 
  0 and 4.  "0" disables AQ and "4" results in lower 
  quants. Note: Keep in mind that due to virtualization 
  associated with VISTA, your most current INI may be 
  located in the VISTA VirtualStore.  One easy way to 
  get to it (if you are using VISTA), is to create a 
  shortcut on your desktop that points to it.

- Added a parameter to the HC SETTINGS menu that enables
  and disables LOGGING when encoding with HC encoder. The
  log will be written to a file named "HCLOG.TXT" in the 
  working directory.
 
- Included HC Encoder v0.23 in the installation packages.
  This version includes extended features and bug fixes.

- Added ability to have different 1st and 2nd passes when
  using MOBILE encoding (see the MOBILE.INI template under
  the AVCHD beta for an example.

- Added a "hidden" option called "ImgBurnDest" that, when
  added to REBUILDER.INI will force the write to a specific
  drive.  This is expecially useful when working on a
  computer that has more than one writable drive.  As an
  example, to force output to the "F:" drive you would add
  "ImgBurnDest=F:" to REBUILDER.INI.

- Modified the TEMPLATE commands so they automatically
  look in the VirtualStore for templates.

- Corrected "35601" error that could happen (very rarely)
  on sources with no audio.

- Added a parameter to the REBUILDER.INI file so that an
  alternate AVISYNTH resizing algorithm can be used for
  certain functions (e.g. converting from 4:3 widescreen
  to 16:9 anamorphic).  The default is "LanczosResize".
  Example usage: "RESIZE=Spline36Resize"  Note: Adding
  an incorrectly spelled resize parameter will cause your 
  encoding to fail.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.
