Supports of the batch processing of videofiles.

You can pause/continue or stop active job at any moment.
Possibility to save each shot in separate file.
Import and export options presets.
Options preset file format (*.vtm). After you run the preset, the program is automatically opened with the imported tuning. Very useful.

new: Unleash the power of your multi-core CPU with the new Magic Screenlist Generation feature.
It is 4-6 times faster than a single task implementation (depends on your CPU and on the task). Unbelievable? Give it a try.
new: You can find the Magic button next to the regular Start button.
new: The Magic Screenlist Generation feature spawns one task per CPU thread. The only exception is when you create an H264/H265 animation - maximum 3 simultaneous tasks in that case. The rest of the functionality is the same.
new: The Magic progress bar on the top of the window displays overall progress. The first number is the number of completed tasks (blue on the bar). The second number is the number of spawned tasks (smoke grey on the bar). The third number (of) is the total number of tasks.
new: The regular per-task progress bars display the currently used engine and the progress itself.
new: When it comes to animations, a different bar is displayed. It contains the type of animation (single framed or not), number of sections x section length, multithreading mode, audio mode, animation format and quality icons. The animation progress bar is displayed on the right in that case (in magenta color).
new: Faster loading of the application.
new: Fresh feel and look of the application. Main windows and fonts have become bigger, the layout has been redesigned a bit.
new: You can open *.VTS files in VTM (double click in your file manager to open a VTS file in VTM).
new: The "Naming scheme" section in the Settings window. The "Based on the Folder name" means to use Parent folder name + raw number addon (like MyFolder_0001.vtx). The "Folder name + File name" means to use Parent folder name + Filename (like MyFolder_MyFilename.mp4.vtx).
new: You can still set the "Naming scheme" individually (override it) by using the right mouse button context menu in the main window.
new: The "Display confirmation dialog when deleting items" checkbox was added to the Settings -> Appearance & Confirmations window.
changed: Removed unnecessary confirmation windows from Choose Shots Manually interfaces.
changed: Audio/Video information module is updated.
changed: Few cosmetic changes.
fixed: Wrong number of animation sections in VTM exported Options files.
fixed: The currently selected item was deleted from the main list instead of the one you had clicked with the delete icon.
fixed: Window height for the Choose Shots Manually interfaces.
----- Changes in Pictures Thumbnails Viewer 220.127.116.11 -----
new: Support for VTM 18.104.22.168+ screenlists.
special note: If you use Pictures Thumbnails Maker (PTM), you may want to install its latest version too, because PTM uses its own instance of the Viewer. Windows launches the Viewer from the location from which the latest PTM or VTM launch happened.
