What's New in Version 1.25
Fix a crash under Snow Leopard
Feature rich, but not as fast as it could be
I installed this on my MacPro expecting it to be really speeded up by my 5870 graphics card. It appears OpenCL is just a key word here with the real work being done by FFMpeg. The version of FFMPeg supplied is the 32bit version not the 64bit version which makes the utility slower. Other than that and crashing with two graphics cards in the system, it is a feature rich frontend to the FFMpeg utillity.
Quick and easy to use!!!
Very handy and non fussy tool. I still use Final Cut Pro 7, so this is great for quick ammendments to saturation, subtitles and the cut itself… free at the mo too!! No probs so far!!
