TVSuite V6 - 18.104.22.1681a ( Released 2020-08-27)
[Fix] Version check: Automatic download could stall / hang after download completes
1. This version now includes both 32- and 64-bit H264 and HEVC encoders. When you use the default software encoder the correct encoder is selected for your system. To use the existing 32-bit encoders select "Classic" for the encoder type in output profile. The 64-bit encoders provide access to more memory and work better on systems with more than 8 cores/threads than the 32-bit encoders especially with 4K material. Otherwise, the 32-bit and 64-bit encoders run at about the same speed.
2. High speed playback is now available using the K (slower) and L (faster) keys. Pressing each key speeds up playback by a factor of 2.0x. You can re-assign the keys using Tools>Options>Short cuts. They can also be assigned to one of the custom buttons. Starting with build 820, pitch corrected audio can be heard between speeds of 0.5x and 4.0x.
3. Help>Display keyboard shortcuts now shows you your custom keyboard shortcuts rather than the system default ones. You can also re-assign just about all keys including the ones used to set the thumbnail interval and select a particular thumbnail.
4. The thumbnail shift and ctrl options added in build 818 have been changed. When you click on thumbnail with the shift key pressed a sub-menu now pops up where you can select if the selected thumbnail should be moved to the leftmost position or rightmost. See this post for more info.
TVSuite V6 - 22.214.171.1240 ( Released 2020-08-20)
[Enhancement] GUI: Options for playback speed accepts prefix +/- (adds to speed), = (sets to specific speed) or no prefix for multiple.
[Enhancement] GUI: When changing the playback speed, show a temporary visual indicator in the video window of the new speed.
[Enhancement] Playback: Play audio at original pitch even when playback speed has changed. Valid from 0.5x to 4.0x.
[Change] Thumbnails: Allow shift+click on a thumbnail to select center frame. Previous versions excluded center frame.
[Change] Thumbnails: If shift+click and thumbnail interval is set to single frame, change pop menu labels to simply "Move left or right"
[Change] Thumbnails: Re-worked the thumbnail frame cache to use an LRU replacement algorithm and store more frames.
[Change] Transport stream output: If TS mux rate set to auto and null packets are omitted (default for TVSuite), mux plays better in VLC.
[Fix] Cropping: Cropping not working with dual pass encoding.
[Fix] GUI: Remove OK button on the "Permission to access internet" task dialog.
[Fix] GUI: Tools>UI Style editor accidently deleted from menu. Has now been restored.
[Fix] H.264 encoding: New external encoder defaulting to BFF instead of TFF for interlaced video. Now defaults to TFF.
[Fix] H264: Tools>Options>H264 frame rate not honoring "Stream" setting if very close to actual container rate.
[Fix] Installer: not prompting for install folder. Broke in a previous version.
[Fix] MP4/MKV output: Reported output frame counts and video duration are double what is actually saved for H264 PAFF encoded video.
[Fix] MPEG2: Advanced encoding option setting, "Use non-linear quant" wasn't being honored if set to false.
[Fix] MPEG2: Output can stall or abort if excessive removal of corrupted video frames leaves incorrect DTS timestamp setting.
[Fix] MPEG2: Updated to a faster version of the MPEG2 encoder. Performance increase up to 30% at high bit rates ( > 30 Mbps).
[Fix] NVidia encoding: If GPU card doesn't support MBAFF encoding, automatically switch to PAFF if card supports interlaced encoding.
[Fix] NVidia encoding: If output is progressive, ignore Interlace output setting (PAFF/MBAFF).
[Fix] Thumbnails: Audio graph was sometimes not displaying all frames, especially at the right-end of the graph.
