TVSuite Version 6, BETA - download

Not open for further replies.


Please post your functional issues here on the message board in the Version 6 beta thread. However upgrade and key issues should be emailed directly to us via email at support. AT

If you logged into the message board and want to be notified via email of new beta builds, click the "Watch" button at the upper right just above this thread.

Download link: Beta versions are now posted in the resource section of this message board. Click here for the latest beta, and then the orange download button.

Known issues:

1. MPEG2 smart editing does not support fade/dissolve transitions. To output MPEG2 files with transitions force a full transcode. H264 and HEVC smart editing do support transitions.
2. HEVC 10-bit encoding not yet operational.

Please post other issue in new threads on this forum or by sending us an email to support.

Change log for later versions is now shown in the resource section of the message board.

Beta 792c posted.

Improved stability when saving HEVC files especially to MP4 and MKV.

PLEASE NOTE: We are still working on a couple H.264 and HEVC cutting issues, if you've already uploaded samples and haven't heard back from us, then we are still working your reported problem.


Beta 797 posted.

1. IMPORTANT: Joiner has been changed. When you add a project to the joiner each individual scene is now added as a separate joiner entry.
2. NVidia encoder now checks if interlaced encoding is supported and if not automatically includes a deinterlacer if needed.
3. Czech translation now works.

Please see release notes for a list of changes.


Beta 798 posted.

Mostly minor bug fixes, updated beta expiration dates.

Beta 800 posted.

1. Major change to the internals of mkv files. If you use MKV files, please test!!!!

2. HEVC with MP4 output and are intelligent recoded (i.e. smart edit). The first output GOP of the file will always be recoded even if you make the cut on a GOP boundary. This let's us create HEVC that play smoothly on an iOS device.


Beta 801 posted.

1. NVidia, added surface selection (auto, cuda, dx11) to allow NVEnc HEVC encoding on Windows 7. See Tools>Options>GPU encoders

2. Output profiles: Simplified audio processing settings, settings are now: None, Normalize, Auto, Manual raise/lower.

3. 10-bit HEVC gives warning that it will be transcoded to 8-bit. This limitation will be removed after official release.

See release notes for complete list of changes.

NOTE: We had hoped to release this week, but it appears that the V6 release will now occur during the week of September 2 as we finialize the update procedure. More details next week.


VIdeoReDo V6 has been released!

It's build 802 and can be downloaded from our website. Thank you to everyone who assisted in testing and reported problems throughout this pre-release beta period.



Beta build 804 has been posted.

1. Lots of fixes from the 803 release (see release notes).
2. New: On the file save dialog, the save button has a drop-down button to split scenes. This is in addition to the split scene option that's already on the advanced options of the output profile. Hopefully this will make discovery of this feature easier.
3. New: Tools>Options>General>On save auto show 'Select file'. Some V5 users have mentioned that they don't like the extra mouse clicks in the file save dialog. Selecting this option will save a mouse click or two when saving yet still preserve the enhanced output functionality of V6.


Beta Build 805 has been posted.

Mostly minor fixes, please see release notes above.


Beta Build 807a has been posted.

Fixed HEVC MP4 saves
Ad-detective disables deinterlacer making it faster
Improvements to MP4 muxing, fewer hard DTS / PTS errors.
Fixed .vlst files


Beta Build 807b has been posted.

Updated translation files, if you're running 807a in english you can skip installing 807b otherwise install the 807b beta.
