x264 - corrupt files on abort

Hi,
i'm using MeGUI and if i abort the encode job (x264/CQ-ASP_Q2_eq(crf)) the resulting file is corrupt or won't get accepted by my splitter/decoder combo (mp4/haali/coreavc). I currently workaround this by using avisynth/trim to get valid preview encodes (10sec).

Wouldn't it be possible to finalize the file on abortion to get a working file? It would be helpful as well in case you want to keep the file for later comparison (even though you drop the file anyway in the end).

testing 2 aborted --crf encodes in megui and just plain command line, mp4 didn't work but however mkv did work when playing aborted encodes.
so for now if you plan on aborting something, you can try mkv. then just mp4 (if not mkv) when your going through with an encode 100%

I'm using MeGUI updater and it delivers x264 build1069 currently.

Didn't know about MKV behavior. In most cases my abort decisions come after 10mins or later because i check approx calc'ed final file size roughly some times. If it exceeds expectations too much i will abort. I would like to stick to mp4 if possible.

I can remember virtualdub once had the same problem with avi that was fixed later. Maybe its possible with mp4 as well. Its just a thought.
