Release Notes

  • Added x64 version.
  • Made the audio output preview more detailed and accurate. If the chosen encoder or mixdown is incompatible with the source, the fallback that will be used is displayed.
  • Added "Auto" to the audio mixdown choices.
  • Reworked non-anamorphic size calculation to work better with non-standard pixel aspect ratios and cropping.
  • Reworked Custom anamorphic to be more intuitive and allow display width to be set automatically (Thanks, Statick).
  • Allowing higher bitrates for 6-channel surround when using AAC.
  • Changed wording on empty width and height fields from (not set) to (auto) to be more clear.
  • Combined AC3 and DTS passthrough options so that one choice can work as a passthrough for either format.
  • Changed built-in presets to use Auto sample rate rather than 48 kHz.
  • Updated the "Encode" icon look
  • Fixed crash that could occur when refreshing the preview image while encoding a preview clip.
  • Disabled deinterlacing on static previews to help prevent a crash.

Again, excellent tool. But it sure would be nice if there was an option to name the audio streams. When I view a movie that has a director's commentary on my ipod touch, I would prefer to select the audio that's labeled "Director's Commentary" instead of "English (AC3) (2.0 ch)" - much more elegant and user friendly that way. Handbrake allows for this if you edit and run the batch file.
