Version 1.3.0
  • Release Date: Mar 24, 2010
  • fixed:
    • not releasing VFW and cache assets when deleting an element.
    • multiple crashes for transitions less than 1 second.
    • crashes caused by overflow calculating transition size ratios of rectangles and gradients.

  • changed:
    • undoing premultiplied RGB now performed before intensity linearization.
    • "Save as" (m2v, bmp, avi) now labeled "Render to".
  • added:
    • generated shapes are now anti-aliased, gamma corrected, and blended with HiRes giving them smoother edges and the ability to be rotated and alpha blended.

    • export elements to bmp with or without alpha (RGB24, ARGB32).
    • Renderers used during editing for images, objects, and the active element can now be changed from pulldown menu.
    • The "straight" lines of all shapes can now be curved. This gives a second method of drawing an arc, and allows for new shapes such as crescents and fluted circles.
    • Pen-Lift allows drawing polygons with skipped vertices such that the drawing becomes several overlapped polygons of fewer sides (example 6 sides skipping 1 produces 2 triangles) to be drawn as one figure, thus changing the fill pattern to recognize the central region(s).
    • The new drawing engine can use multiple brushes for filling interior regions of polygons.

    • Improved:
      • SubPicture multi-file manager now shows where a subpicture will be in the timeline after making a change to the display time with a colored line. Green indicates no problem with the time, yellow indicates overlap with an existing subpicture, and red indicates the move cannot be made due to highlight information needing to be swapped. note: the multi-file manager cannot swap highlights, that is a very complicated change to the data requiring seeking out all commands (menu items) of both highlights from all PGCs.

      • unable to edit subpictures or highlights with a composite or simple image for video.
      • selecting a button cleared auto-action flag for button
      • unable to select button unless highlight layer displayed

      • emulation not working correctly for subs other than full size
      • disallow immediate compare for JumpTT and JumpVts_TT in VM command editor
      • conversion from contrast percentage to contrast number needed rounding up
