News....

Post by Maggie » Wed Jan 15, 2020 12:08 pm

As some may already know, we are looking for a new team member. (hurray!)
Today was The big meeting, the team planned the months to come.

In very brief, Jacques will release a Downloader version end of this week with a new feature (subtitles!), and goes back on FFMPEG (64bit).
Hoping we will find our new colleague soon, she/he will work on the V6 of Downloader (new interface, clean code/structure, potential MAC/Linux compatibilities, plenty of new secret features ;) )

Estimation dates:
64bit remains unchanged (May 2020 best case scenario)
Downloader v6 ALPHA June/July 2020 depending of our productivity!

Trying our best to make VSO great again :wink:

Happy new year to all :)

Cheers,
Maggie,

Wow that is great news !

Downloader and ConvertXtoVideo are the two software I use the most :wink:

I think Jacques will be very happy not being the only coder in the shop, I miss the old team, but this is the future :D

Thank you for keeping us in loop with the news...

Question to all...

Is the whole application going to be 64bits or just ffmpg ?
Sorry I am not a coder :)

Can someone speculate, 32bits VS 64bits conversion, are we to expect a slight speed change, or hold on to your hat and enjoy the fast ride ? :)

In brief, for H264(AVC1) or other currently available encoding formats, we estimate an increase of 20/25% so a significant speedup.
H265(HEVC) and AV1 will be (obviously) slower since they claim more to encode.

However, with hardware acceleration (AMD cards will be implemented) you should have 100/130frames/sec (4x realtime) using recent good cards.

Hope it answers your question ;)
