Freeware Version 0.96

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version. Note that this freeware version includes all bugfixes to date. Also note that the freeware version will not include the enhanced capabilities of the Pro Edition -- and future releases will be limited to minor changes and bug fixes only.

CHANGES MADE TO FREEWARE VERSION (since v0.95)

- Modified code to perform more aggressive detection and removal of layer breaks.

- Added some updates that will make DVD-RB work more reliably with the output of DVDFab Decrypter.

- Improved calling procedure so DVD-RB does not use as much CPU time (leaving more for the encoder).

- Corrected maximum bitrate allocation on NTSC interlaced sources in order to assure adherence to specifications.

- Corrected an error in which source filenames that are a mixture of uppercase/lowercase letters might cause "Error 0003, buffer overflow".

- Updated OPV code to more accurately hit the specified target size on NTSC non-telecined sources.

- Added measures to more accurately measure bitrates in the source stream and then distributes it accordingly in the backup.

Professional Edition Version 1.03

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Improved the peak bitrate determination algorithm. It now more accurately determines source bitrates and works properly with NTSC interlaced sources.

- Fixed a bug that could cause "Runtime Error 380" under some circumstances. This should make audio removal in DVD ReMake Pro compatible with DVD-RB.

- Corrected an error in which source filenames that are a mixture of uppercase/lowercase letters might cause "Error 0003, buffer overflow".

- Corrected a setting that might, under certain circumstances, allow NTSC interlaced ILVU sources to fall out of specifications.

- Fixed an error that under specific conditions could create video streams that exceed maximum bitrates.

- Updated OPV code to help prevent undersizing when encoding NTSC sources or when selecting a GOP size other that 12. A special thanks to Rippraff for nailing this one.

- Fixed an error in which it was possible that an audio glitch might be inserted at a layer break or point where the SCR gets reset to zero.

- Added an option to the "Select ISO Output Options" dialog that will remove the .ISO image from the output path after a successful image burn. This is meant to minimize required disc space, please use it cautiously.

Professional Edition Version 1.04

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Reorganized the "Options" configuration. It is no longer accessed as a Menu. Now it is accessed via a Tree View on either the tab bar, or, for pre-version 1.00 skins, via an "Options" choice in the "Settings" menu. The menu had grown too large for easy use. Some "quick access" items remain under the "Settings" menu.

- Added a setting under the "Mode" menu in which you can select all Extras for Half-D1. This option will not reduce bitrates for Extras (like Half/Half), but settings selected under "Steal Space from Extras" will be applied. This provides more granularity so the option can be used more effectively.

- Corrected an issue in which certain odd original anomalies might cause timing issues. A special thanks to Magic144 for finding this one.

- Fixed an error that, under certain circumstances, might cause video ticks or stutter at chapter or segment break points.

- Tweaked the muxing algorithm to facilitate better video playback buffering control.

- Changed the default setting for the Viewer/Editor so its calls use long filenames. Some users were having trouble getting it to work properly.

- Updated the Installer to use a newer version of HC Encoder (v0.16, 11/12/2005). This file is also included in the "Update Only" zip file.

- Updated installer to use EclPro v0.52. Includes better compatibility and support for Express versions.

- Corrected an error in which an erroneous input stream might cause DVD-RB to "hang" during PREPARE phase looking for a nonexistent extension start code.

Professional Edition Version 1.05

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Added "Template" options under the "File" menu. Now you can load and save settings that you find to be especially useful for different types of sources, such as film, anime, cartoon, CG, series discs, etc. All you have to do to create a new template is to set up Rebuilder in the way you'd like to encode a certain type of disc, for example: the CCE or HC bias, matrices, GOP sizes, or filters -- then select "Save Template". If you have settings you find useful for certain source types, post the template on the Rebuilder forum at www.doom9.org or www.dvd-rb.com and it may be added to future DVD Rebuilder versions.

- Corrected an error that could result in "Error 0006, Framecount differences..." when working with the null output of some ripping programs.

- Fixed a sizing issue in which unreferenced audio streams that exist in the original VOB files were included in the output -- but weren't properly accounted for in the size calculation.

- Modified the ReJig calling procedure so that DVD-RB uses less processor time during calls. This should speed up ReJig.

- Change the GOP setting for HC encoder so that if version 0.16 or greater is used, "*GOP 12 2" is not forced for FILM sources.

- Added dummy pre-command and "Exit" post-command to the IFO generated by "Movie Only" encodes. It seems there are certain players that will not play correctly unless a command table is present. A special thanks to rayvt for finding the cause and cure of this problem.

- Corrected an error which might cause DVD-RB to "hang" at the 100% during PREPARE.

- Revamped the keyfile process. Too many folks were having trouble using the .RBK files. Now DVD Rebuilder will download the keyfile itself. The keyfile is also now linked to an individual computer via System ID. I've tried to make it as painless as possible. Please read the HELP information in the registration dialog. A new EXE file called Reg-RB.EXE is included in the DVD-RB directory and it can be run to get the system id and download your key for any computer upon which you wish to run Rebuilder.. It is called automatically by DVD-RB when needed. There is a default limit of 5 System IDs allowed for each registered e-mail address.

Professional Edition Version 1.05.2

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Corrected an error in which VIDEO_TS file for a Movie Only disc could have a wrong value set in the First Play PGC table.

- Corrected the PGC Program Table size for the IFO created in Movie-Only mode so it's length is always a multiple of two. This cause playback problems in at least one player model.

- Lowered the default VBR minimum bitrate for CCE to 300 (from 500). It was set to 500 in v0.83 in order to circumvent problems with CCE 2.70. These seem to be no longer present, but as a precaution code was added to dynamically increase the to value to 500 in the event of problems. Also added code that will automaticlly adjust it back up to 500 if an encoding pass fails. The lower value should result in slightly better overall picture quality as fewer bits are wasted on low demand scenes.

- Fixed an error in the registration process in which using uppercase characters (the first time) in the e-mail field might make the registration fail repeat upon each load.

- Reduced the aggressiveness of the layer break removal, as some Sony Players appear to be very strict in how they handle streams marked with the "seamless" flag. If you wish to override this setting, add "AGGRESSIVE_LAYER_BREAK_REMOVAL=1" to the "[Options]" area of the REBUILDER.INI file.

- Updated HCBatch.exe to the most recent version.

- Increased GOP buffer size to help reduce the likelihood of buffer overflows (0003 and 0004) on some rare sources. Note, though, that 0003 and 0004 are indicators of a malformed source -- and most typically indicate a corrupted source file. This is usually due to preprocessing.

- Modified the CCE Advanced Settings dialog so it uses sliders instead of dropdown boxes.

(Below are changes made for v1.05.1)

- Fixed a problem in which the default templates that are created by DVD-RB are done so with inappropriate space characters inserted -- making the values not load correctly.

- Corrected an issue in which the SYSTEM ID may change if a network adapter is removed or added to the system. This is especially noticable in laptop computers. Note, however, that DVD-RB will continue to use the previously obtained SYSTEM ID unless the key file has been deleted. This is to prevent unnecessary reregistration on systems that don't experience this issue. But it is recommended that you delete your old key and create a new one to ensure you don't experience this problem. All user SYSTEM ID counts have been reset to zero to accomodate this.

- Fixed an problem in which a small percentage of users could not connect to the download site and the key file had to be requested via e-mail.

- Updated the installation package to install ReJig v0.5f. This version includes several updates that give quality improvements that were implemented by DragonGodz.

- Updated the installation package to install HC encoder version 0.16.1. This version corrects some minor bugs.

Professional Edition Version 1.06

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Added support for DGDECODE v1.4.5. This update includes many enhancements/bug fixes and makes DVD-RB's support consistent with Neuron2's most current release. Support for MPEG2DEC3DG and DGDECODE v1.1.0 remains. This update includes a fix which corrects a rare problem in which an encoder may "freeze" while trying to encode a segment. The DVD-RB installer now includes and installs DGDECODE v1.4.5 by default.

- Added coding for handling "garbage" sectors that were found to have caused problems during the PREPARE phase on at least one disc. Thanks to SpazzHH for finding a disc in which it was repeatable.

- Modified the AVS position of the trim() command. Performing the trim after the insertion of some optional filters can give better results.

- Updated some cosmetic features for consistency. Changed slider for HC Bias, and added TextColor variable to CCE settings Skin.

- Corrected a Button Over Video (BOV) issue. In some very active streams BOV may not have been reproduced properly.

- Corrected an error in the REBUILD module that could misinterpret certain input streams and as a result, throw a "ERROR 006: DVD-RB...framecount differences" error.

- Fixed a problem in which an extremely unlikely set of circumstances might cause audio to move out of sync over the course of a segment.

- Fixed a bug in which remapping audio while set to "Movie-Only" mode would cause a Runtime Error 9.

- Added a module that performs key download via web in the event of direct connection failure.

- Removed annoying "VOB Count" warning in Movie-Only modes.

Professional Edition Version 1.06.1

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- In order to facilitate the changed iDCT options of DGDECODE v1.4.5, the iDCT selection table is now changed depending upon the version selected.

- Updated the skins to reflect newer button format on the CCE Settings dialog.

- Added the selected reduction percentage to the "Steal Space from Extras is enabled" line that is displayed and logged.

- Corrected a bug in which certain parameters were not being loaded correctly when starting by double-clicking on a .RBP file.

- Fixed a bug related to field order detection and encoding introduced in v1.06 in which a specific set of (unusual) circumstances might cause the order to be incorrectly detected.

- Updated routines to take advantage of newer CCE abilities (v2.69 and greater) to output bottom field first (BFF) interlaced streams. Now when
the original stream is BFF -- the new stream can retain this characteristic.

- Enhanced the REBUILD engine so it will now accept field based picture structures. This might improve ProCoder encoding of interlaced streams (if enabled). It will also stop Error #0006 when using ReJig or "No Compression" on streams that use that structure.

- Fixed the "BlankText" INI parameter so it will work with Half-D1 sources that are being blanked.

Professional Edition Version 1.07

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Implemented menu encoding. This new feature will now scan and reencode menu segments in the same way as standard title sets. This should save some space, allow for more efficient use of space, and improve quality. It is especially useful on titles that have large amounts of space used by menus. The default setting encodes any menu that is over 50MB. This can be overridden by setting a value for the "hidden" parameter "VTSM_MIN_SIZE" in the [Options] area of the REBUILDER.INI. It works similar to the "VTS_MIN_SIZE" parameter. It is recommended that you keep the default setting, as encoding segments that smaller than 50MB usually only increases encoding time without significantly improving qualty. If you prefer no menu encoding at all, this feature can be disabled or enabled via the "Settings" menu.

- Added code to enable multiple encoder instances. The feature is available under the "Settings" menu. On multiple core computers and some very fast
single core computers using hyperthreading this will take advantage of unused processor time. This concept has been proven in concept using HC encoder, QuEnc, and ProCoder (via ECLPRO) in Rumbah's "DualDVDRB" software. Please note that if your computer already runs at 100% of its processor time this option will not likely improve your speed and in fact may make it slightly slower. But, on some processors and some encoders it has been reported to increase speeds by as much as 30-50%. Heavy Kudos to Rumbah for exploring and proving this concept via "DualDVDRB."

- Corrected "Runtime Error 55" that could occur if attempting to force-close DVD-RB during encoding.

- Corrected a reference to "32-Bit Floating Point" in the iDCT choices for DGDECODE v1.4.5. It actually is "64-Bit Floating Point".

- Corrected an error in which the intra_DC_precision setting could be set incorrectly in CCE Basic and CCE SP v2.50 under some circumstances.

- Fixed an error in which the "Enable Output" option wasn't being properly reset on project loads or during batch encoding.

- Added Menu Segments to Segment Editor so they can be blanked or slideshow adjusted. Be careful, as disabling a menu background can sometimes make the function of the menu impossible to understand. Menu segments are listed as "VTM_nn" in the editor.

- Updated the installer to include HC Version 0.17.

Professional Edition Version 1.07.2

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Fixed a bug that could cause subpictures that are selected for removal to be also incorrectly removed from Menus. This could make the menu selections fail to function.

- Corrected an error in which on rare occasions the output BUP file be incorrectly updated during a certain type of menu encode sequence.

- Corrected some bugs associated with menu encoding and Half-D1/Anamorphic conversion. Also disabled filters for menu encodes.

[Changes made for version 1.07.1]

- IMPORTANT BUG FIX: Corrected an error in the Menu Encoding module in which some menus may be encoded without audio.

- IMPORTANT BUG FIX: Corrected an error in which the encoding process can "hang" while doing an ILVU segment.

- Modified OPV maximum bitrate calculation during the prediction phase in order to prevent possible "OPV VBV ovf" errors.

- Updated the Installer to use a version of ECLPRO that supports multiple instances.

- Corrected iDCT "64-Bit SSE2MMX" to "32-Bit SSE2MMX"

- Fixed an error in which he HalfD1 checkmark was not properly resetting upon new source load.

Professional Edition Version 1.08.1

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- NEW FEATURE: Added automatic detection and extraction of segments that don't need reencoding. This makes it possible, e.g., for "Steal Space from Extras", "Half-D1/Half Space", Menu Encoding, or possibly even simple removal of a large audio track to allow the main feature's video to be kept completely intact. Included a "Force Reencode" selection under the "Options" menu which will override this feature when you wish filters to be applied.

- Added a "Force No Reencoding" to the Video Segment Editor/Viewer. This will allow you to select segments for which you wish the video portion to remain intact. Note that this setting reduces the "recovered" amount that can be added to the feature -- and can lead to a negative feature bitrate. When this happens the "Save Settings" button is disabled.

- Added a selection under the "Settings" menu that allows you to choose to size for DVD-5 (single layer) or for DVD-9 (dual layer) output. Also added DL target size adjustment parameter for each encoder. You can set size for DLTargetSectors or any of the encoders (just add "DL" to any of the old target settings, e.g. HCTargetSectors would become DLHCTargetSectors). This capability was added to satisfy requests -- but also to support other new upcoming features. Note that the "DVD-9" option is new and SHOULD BE CONSIDERED "BETA" -- use with caution until it is completely debugged.

- Added an option under the "Settings" menu that allows you to set the process priority of the encoder to NORMAL or IDLE (low) priority. This can be useful for times when you are using your computer for other purposes while encoding. Careful, though, using the IDLE priority can also slow down encoding dramatically when any other process is in progress.

- Fixed an error that could cause certain types of menu still pictures to not display -- causing what could be perceived as several other menu problems.

- Corrected a miscalculation related to menu encoding that might lead to oversizing (especially when using TargetSector settings that have been increased from the default).

- Updated some of the calculation methods in the Segment Viewer, using the old methods it was possible to lose sizing accuracy when portions of the Feature VTS were blanked or set for SLIDESHOW mode.

- Added "quick" keys to the segment editor. You can now press "B" to blank, "S" for slideshow, "F" to force no reencoding (keep video intact) and either "N" or "Space" to set back to normal.

- Corrected an error in which the "Half-D1/Half Space" option was not working properly and output video may not have been resized.

- Fixed a minor bug in which an encounter with an illegally formated IFO file format could repeat an error message several times.

- Fixed a cosmetic error in which a "-" would be inserted in the DVD-RB form title every time it was activated.

- Corrected a registration bug introduced in v1.08.

- Other minor bug fixes.

Professional Edition Version 1.09

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- NEW FEATURE: Support for closed captions. Now DVD-RB will extract closed caption data from the original DVD and remultiplex it into the MPEG stream during REBUILD. Note that, although this new code has been tested, it is new and therefore should be considered beta for this version. For that reason it can only be enabled by adding the "hidden" setting "CLOSED_CAPTIONS=1" to the [Options] area of the REBUILDER.INI file. WARNING: Many software players do NOT play CC correctly. Please do not post bug reports unless you first also try to play the original disc with the software player (e.g. PowerDVD 6.0 seems to have problems with certain CC).

- ENHANCEMENT: Added code to enhance the functioning of automatic "no reencoding" feature introduced in v1.08. Now any space reallocated due to "Steal Space" or the "Half/Half" functions that is not needed to enable the "no reencoding" extraction is returned to the Extras. This allows you to "overkill" in order to force extraction -- but the amount of actual reduction will only be what is truly necessary.

- Fixed an error in which specific circumstances could cause highlights in a menu to not display when the rebuild of the menu cell immediately follows another cell that uses the same VOBID/CELLID combination.

- Corrected a bug in which, under unusual circumstances, a one byte difference can occur between matching BUP and IFO files.

- Fixed an error that could occur very rarely and cause a report of error: "00032 00009 -- error reading IFO".

- Fixed a bug in which restarting the ENCODE phase following a previous completion was not reseting the progress flag, causing problems in future pauses.

- Corrected some inconsistencies with the way menus are handled in the Segment Viewer/Editor.

- Fixed a problem in which selecting "Movie and Menus" could very rarely blank a menu that is a part of a VTS other than the one containing the feature.

- Added a "Close at REBUILD Completion" option to the Mode menu and a "Close at Batch Completion" option to the file menu. These will close DVD-RB -- but will not shutdown the computer.

- Updated the ECLPRO version to v1.00RC1. This version has been reported to correct the "presets" issue seen by some users when using the "Multiple Encoder" option with ProCoder.

Freeware Version 0.97

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Freeware release):

- Fixed an error that, under certain circumstances, might cause video ticks or stutter at chapter or segment break points.

- Fixed a sizing issue in which unreferenced audio streams that exist in the original VOB files were included in the output -- but weren't properly accounted for in the size calculation.

- Corrected an error that could result in "Error 0006, Framecount differences..." when working with the null output of some ripping programs.

- Corrected an error in which an erroneous input stream might cause DVD-RB to "hang" during PREPARE phase looking for a nonexistent extension start code.

- Corrected an issue in which certain odd original anomalies might cause timing issues.

- Updated the Installer to use a newer version of HC Encoder (v0.17). This file is also included in the "Update Only" zip file.

- Updated the installation package to install ReJig v0.5f. This version includes several updates that give quality improvements that were implemented by DragonGodz.

- Fixed a sizing issue in which unreferenced audio streams that exist in the original VOB files were included in the output -- but weren't properly accounted for in the size calculation.

- Modified the ReJig calling procedure so that DVD-RB uses less processor time during calls. This should speed up ReJig.

- Corrected a problem in which the calculated bitrate may exceed the original and as a result make the stream incompatible with the audio on some sources. This would have shown itself as "stutter" during playback.

- Added coding for handling "garbage" sectors that were found to have caused problems during the PREPARE phase on at least one disc. Thanks to SpazzHH for finding a disc in which it was repeatable.

- Corrected a Button Over Video (BOV) issue. In some very active streams BOV may not have been reproduced properly.

Professional Edition Version 1.09.2

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Fixed an error in the closed captions code that could corrupt the MPEG stream causing blocky video playback. Please note that the closed captioning code should still be considered "beta" and should only be enabled by those wishing to test and verify its integrity. Note: CC processing is activated by adding "CLOSED_CAPTIONS=1" to the "[Options]" area of the REBUILDER.INI file.

- Fixed a bug in which closed captions were not being enabled in the IFO file for movie-only encodes.

- Fixed a problem that could make Closed Captions to play haphazardly when used against a telecined source.

- Corrected an error in which Closed Caption data was being incorrectly inserted for "No Compression" and ReJig modes.

- Corrected a problem in which an IFO that has no PGCs defined could cause DVD-RB to stop with an error message ("0032 0009").

- Corrected the syntax of the status output when setting for DVD-9. The log incorrectly said "DVD-5".

Professional Edition Version 1.09.3

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Added direct support for AutoQMatEnc. Please note that DVD-RB only enables support when it can determine the application path. It will assume the default path "c:\program files\autoqmatenc\autoqmatenc.exe" unless overridden via registry entry. AutoQMatEnc can be downloaded from http://www.autoqmatenc.com. [Added note:] The path can also be entered in the "[Paths]" section of the INI file. Using "AUTOQMATENC="

- Updated the installation package to include the latest HC Encoder version (v.18).

- Fixed a bug in which cells that contain no video data might result in "VOB/CELL not found" during rebuild.

- Fixed an error in which ILVU video segments that are extracted (because the disc will fit) can become corrupt and cause strange playback behavior.

- Corrected an error in which "garbage" data following null or padding sectors could result in unpredictable timing and/or desynchronization.

- Fixed "Error 53" that could occur when no M2V file was created during the ENCODE phase after three tries. The error was typically caused by an incorrect encoder path and should have issued a more informative "Failed to Create an M2V" file and exited gracefully.

- Corrected sizing calculations on discs containing null or padding sectors (usually inserted by a decrypter) to help prevent possible (slight) undersizing.

- Added code to reduce the likelihood of "Error #0006" on streams that contain embedded MPEG garbage. Also, as investigation showed that these only happen in "orphaned" MPEG sections (following "null sectors" created by a decrypter) that are never actually decoded, the error message has been removed and replaced by a warning in the STATUS window/log.

- Added code to remove DVD-RB from a minimized state just before executing a shutdown sequence. There are reports that the shutdown dialog "freezes" with the "5 seconds" text showing when attempted while minimized.

- Implemented a change that can reduce the likelihood of "Error #0003, buffer overflow" on oddly formatted source streams.

- Fixed an error in which it is feasible (but rare) that logging of a start code at the very end of a VTS might be missed during PREPARE.

- Corrected an error in CC processing that could cause an error "0068 0005" when a new GOP with CC data starts at the very end of a video packet.

- Made several process improvements to the handling of sequence_end_codes and associated end actions.

- As closed captioning support appears to be stable, it has been removed from "beta" status and can now be enabled/disabled from the "Settings" menu.

- Added code to avoid confusion by disabling menu selection of encoders for which no path is present in the setup.

Professional Edition Version 1.10

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Newly updated and improved Segment Editor/Viewer. You can now adjust reduction percentages using a slider. The new viewer also improves the viewability and ease of use for editing and makes several other future features possible. Note that the editor is BETA. It is meant to be tested (only) in this version. For that reason you must manually select "Use Beta (test) Viewer/Editor" under the "Settings" menu to enable it.

- Corrected an error in menu reencoding in which some STILL menus might show momentarily (on certain specific players) and then exit.

- Changed defaults in the Viewer/Editor so that "Show Extras Only" is no longer the default.

- Fixed a bug in which extraction of ILVU sections when a source requires no encoding might receive "corrupt" source warnings and report other unpredictable errors.

- Corrected an error in which the AutoQMatEnc version many not be collected when the path is obtained from the INI file.

- Removed the "Special Error Processing" option. It no longer serves a purpose.

- Corrected an error in which some small VTSs may not be blanked or stilled when selecting "Movie and Menu Only" or "Movie, Menus, and Slideshow Extras".

- Fixed a bug in which the value set into vobu_se_e_ptm could be incorrectly calculated and might possibly result in odd menu behavior on some players.

- Corrected a bug in which the number of passes selection in the AutoQMatEnc advanced screen was disabled when CCE Basic was checked.

- Improved the method for inserting NAVPACKs related to STILL processing.

- Added a horizontal scroll bar to filter editor so long filters are kept on one line during editing.

- Added code to prevent a very rare cell transition timing anomaly that can occur when the source contains an irregularity.

- Updated QuEnc version included in the installer to v0.70

- Other minor bug and cosmetic fixes.

Professional Edition Version 1.10.2

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Fixed a problem with the new editor in which automatic blanking and slideshow that is executed when "Movie and Menus" or "Move, Menus, and Slideshow Extras" was not reallocating saved space to the feature. This only happened when "Use Beta (test) Viewer/Editor" was selected. Extreme undersizing of output could occur.

- Corrected a bug introduced in v1.10 that was related to the new Viewer/Editor. This bug could result in "Corrupt stream" message when using one of the "Movie and Menus" or "Move, Menus, and Slideshow Extras" modes was selected. It could also cause these modes to fail.

- Corrected an error in which clicking on the MENUS option when no menus were being reencoded could cause a "Runtime Error 13". (v1.10.1)

Professional Edition Version 1.10.3

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

PLEASE NOTE: If you downloaded this version before 7:00PM EDT on August 11th, please download it again. There was a slight correction to the executable.

- Added routines to recognize and ignore extraneous files in the source directory -- including unreferenced VTSs that serve no purpose except to occupy space.

- Fixed "Runtime Error 6" that can occur during rebuild when dealing with very small M2V files under specific conditions.

- Corrected a problem in which, under specific circumstances, ILVU segments for angles that are encoded with CCE may not be encoding with necessary GOP restrictions.

- Fixed an error in which pointers in the SML_AGLI table could incorrectly set some block pointers to NEXT_ILVU + 1 rather then NEXT_ILVU. This could cause a momemtary audio or video "jump" when switching angles.

- Tweaked several ILVU settings to ensure strict compliance.

- Added code to verify paths in INI. This will prevent the occurance of Runtime Error '52' and Runtime Error '76' when invalid paths are manually entered into the INI file.

- Fixed a bug in which the completion status bar may not be updated to reflect 100% at the end of PREPARE.

- Updated the installer to include AVISYNTH v2.5.6. It will NOT, however, overwrite your existing AVISYNTH installation so it it recommended that if you want to upgrade to this newer version -- you must first uninstall AVISYNTH using the Windows Control Panel.

- Added Rebuilder version information to AVS, INF, and LOG files to make debugging easier.

- Corrected a bug in which detection of the AutoQMatEnc path may not have worked properly on some non-English systems.

- Corrected an error in which "Runtime Error '52'" may occur at startup on systems that use drives other than "C:" as the root.

- Fixed a command line incompatibility issue with early versions of QuEnc.

- Added an optional alternate output path for ISO creation. By adding "ISO_OUTPUT=" (and a path) to the "[Paths]" area of the REBUILDER.INI you can redirect output to a path or drive other than the output directory.

- Updated the installer to include the latest QuEnc v0.71.

- Fixed other minor/cosmetic bugs.

Professional Edition Version 1.10.4

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Added a new "ImgBurn Directly to Disc (No ISO)" option under the "Mode" menu. When selected this option will, at then end of DVD file creation, automatically burn to disc using the newest version of ImgBurn. Note -- the option is only enabled if you have ImgBurn v2.0.0.0 or greater installed on your computer. No ISO file will be created on your hard drive when using this option. ImgBurn is highly recommended and can be downloaded at www.imgburn.com.

- Modified the "Check Latest Version" option under the "Help" menu. It now brings you to a "Download" page. This is meant to make it easier for registered users to check for and obtain the most recent version.

- Corrected an error that prevented OPV mode from working correctly for AutoQMatEnc. The result in previous versions would have been multiple passes regardless of the setting.

- Added code for checking and adjusting for Pan & Scan mode in menu creation. This should correct the problem on ccertain players where menu video appears horizontally compressed and button placement appears off.

- Added code to recognize and exclude unreferenced cells. This can improve picture quality by reallocated wasted space to referenced cells. In addition it can prevent processing confusion and audio missynchronization that can occur as a result of insertion of unreferenced cells.

- Updated the AutoQMatEnc Advanced settings dialog so it supports enabling/disabling automatic bias. The bias now affects the outcome (before AutoBias was always in effect).

- Made prediction improvements in calculations for one pass Q and CQ) encoding. Note: Setting higher-than-standard target sizes increases the likelihood of oversizing. This new OPOV algorithm targets more closely.

- Modified code to provide greater compatibility with newest version (2.0.0.0) of ImgBurn.

- Other minor/cosmetic changes.

Professional Edition Version 1.10.5

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Corrected an error introduced in Pan & Scan support that could cause "...error getting MPG start code. [02:53:59] 00070 00006"

- Corrected an issue in which writing directly to disc using ImgBurn would create a "Pause" for display of image details and required user intervention in order to continue.

Professional Edition Version 1.10.6

Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

- Multiple instance encoding is now supported for AutoQmatEnc as well as HC, QuEnc, and ProCoder. Note: This requires AQE version 0.33 or greater. You can download it from www.autoqmatenc.com.

- Corrected an issue in which a non-zero value in a RESERVED section of the DSI_GI table of a NAVPACK could erroneously cause cells to be flagged as unreferenced. This condition doesn't seem to occur in any commercial discs -- but does appear in discs authored using "ULEAD DVD MovieFactory".

- Improved the sizing slider for the beta Viewer/Editor. Added a "<" and ">" for small upward and downward sizing. This should help get the value to exactly what you might decide is perfect.

- Made several processing improvements to the Viewer/Editor.

- Added a menu item "Allocate Saved Space to Feature" to the beta Viewer/Editor. This will take any unused space recovered through lowering bitrates, setting "Blank" etc. and allocate it to the feature VTS.

- Added a menu item "Reset to Default" to the beta Viewer/Editor. This will remove all actions and reset to the state before any blanking, etc. has taken place.

- Added a "hidden" setting, "DISABLE_UNREFERENCED_REMOVAL". This allows you to keep unreferenced cells and VTSs if for some reason it becomes necessary. By default DVD-RB removes any video/audio that, based upon the IFOs, is not actually used on the DVD.

- Fixed an inconsistency in the IFO's VTS_PTT_SRPT table that could happen during movie-only encodes.

- Added support for CCE SP2 (Trial). This feature uses settings that are only moderately tested and should be considered "Beta" -- it is not recommended that it be used except for testing. In order to activate the feature for testing you must add the line "SP2_Support=1" to the "[Options]" area of the REBUILDER.INI file.

- Added VTS_MIN_SIZE and VTSM_MIN_SIZE checks in the REBUILD module. In previous versions changing this value between PREPARE and REBUILD (which is something that could only be done manually and should never be done) could result in "Runtime Error 6".

- Added code to find default paths for CCE that will be used if not overridden by those in the INI file.

- Changed the shell call for execution of encoders in a minimized state to not receive focus.

- Improved the layer_break recognition routines to more judiciously decide whether to change cell settings in the IFO.

- Other minor and cosmetic changes.
