MPGEnc 4.0 XPress Version 22.214.171.124 - June 26, 2008
New Includes a Blu-ray (BDMV, BDAV) MPEG-2 output template.
New Includes an AVCHD reader allowing the use of AVCHD sources from a camcorder.
New Can use the Sony AVCHD reader when installed on the application host computer.
Improved Supports full HD output (up to 1920?1080 @ 60 fps) in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264.
Improved Supports pixel aspect ratios other than 1:1 output in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264.
Improved Supports AAC audio (up to 2 channels) input through the MPEG reader. Also supports AAC audio input embedded within an MPEG-2 Transport Stream container.
Improved MPEG file output's Display mode setting offers Progressive (2:2 pulldown) option.
Improved Implemented a solution to correct a loss of CPU usage rate increase occuring when outputting more than one file in WMV format within a Windows Media Player 11 environment.
Improved Supports the WMF picture file format through an embeded WMF decoder.
Fixed Validation system updated to support content-regulated network environment.
Fixed An address violation error and possible application freeze occuring during the output when the source files are imported through the DirectShow reader.
Fixed Application would sometimes not respond when converting a DVR-MS file into a Program Stream.
Fixed FLV1 file would not import properly with some specific CPU environments.
Fixed Project file handling would not be done properly when opening a project file with the "Open a project file" option and manually point the source files not found in the Project.
Fixed An error would arise when starting the editing of a specific mp4 file imported through the QuickTime reader.
Fixed The source framerate could not be obtained properly for a file imported through the QuickTime reader.
Fixed 60 fps data could not be represented properly for a file imported through the QuickTime reader.
Fixed Some parameters were not correctly reflected in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 output window.
Fixed Limitations of the Level 2.1 parameters were incorrect in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 output window.
Fixed The timestamp correction in the MPEG reader would not function properly.
Fixed The VBV buffer size would be always lower than the maximum when outputting in HDV-HD1 with standard definition.
Fixed Noise could appear when applying the Time tone reduction filter on a monaural audio stream.
Fixed LPCM data information would not be handled properly in an LPCM source imported through the AVI reader when the quantization was different than 16 bit.
Fixed Encoding would sometimes become abnormaly slow when using the Dolby Digital encoder.
