R40 – Avisynth+ Compatibility and Fixes

R40 has been released. It mostly just fixes small issues like a stupid gamma bug introduced in Levels in the previous version. There’s also a change to how the memory pool is handled on windows which should make it scale better when using high resolutions (like 8k material high) and many threads. Instead of previously being fixed at 100MB it’s set to 10% of the max cache size.

Possibly breaking changes:

  • AVISource now doesn’t output alpha by default (however alpha was never well supported or tested to begin with)
  • Avisynth compatbility no longer has the special workarounds needed for MVTools to work

That’s all for now. Go encode something…
