§ ¶VirtualDub 1.9.3 released
VirtualDub 1.9.3 is now up on SourceForge. This release primarily stabilizes functionality added in previous experimental releases and is intended to be a test candidate -- if all goes well 1.9.4 will be released as stable.
This version is also the first version with 3D acceleration support. 3D acceleration support requires filter support and is currently implemented in seven internal video filters. Because video acceleration quality and speed can vary based on video card and driver version, it is disabled by default unless enabled in Options > Preferences > 3D Accel and should be tested locally before use. I'm afraid that documentation for the VDXA interfaces on the filter side are not yet complete, so if you are a video filter author interested in implementing support, please contact me for details.
Build 32507 (1.9.3, experimental): [July 5, 2009]
UI: Added options to display only one of the panes and to autosize them.
Filters: Added support for 3D hardware acceleration.
Filters: Invert, warp sharp, blur, blur more, brightness/contrast, deinterlace, and resize support hardware acceleration.
Drag and drop onto the batch wizard now works in Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Go To Prev/Next Drop command now works after the timeline has been edited.
Fixed random frame codes on the one-after frame.
AVI: fccHandler header value for newly generated uncompressed videos with non-RGB formats is now set to the FOURCC to work around encoders that don't accept DIB.
AVI: Fixed bug where zero-byte pad frames were lost if the video stream had a non-zero dwSampleSize value set.
Filters: Cropping button is now grayed out for disabled filters, since the input size is unknown.
Filters: Fill filter now shows correct input size when there are earlier filters (although, currently, the image is still incorrect).
Filters: Fixed bug where crop bounds weren't recorded correctly if the up/down buttons were clicked and a thousands separator appeared.
Filters: Fixed random crash in interlace filter when switching formats.
Filters: The manual field order options in the IVTC filter were flipped.
Filters: Resize no longer forces a conversion to YV24 when resizing YV16 input in interlaced mode.
Display: Fixed crash in GDI minidriver when displaying interlaced video with a 0x0 pane.
DV: Fall back to subsequent frames if the first frame has invalid audio metadata.
Capture: Fixed preview window being the wrong size when filtering/cropping is enabled and preview acceleration is off.
Capture: Fixed inconsistency in capture timing defaults. This only matters if you haven't already run VirtualDub in capture mode once.
Capture: The AVI superindex/subindex settings now also apply to captures.
- Filters: Fixed error in IVTC computations for RGB32, YUY2, and UYVY formats (since 1.9.1).
I've been using VirtualDub for a long time, and not stopping anytime soon - thank you very much for your hard work & commitment!

thank you for your great work. i was always wondering if virtualdub could open WMV files, i got the plugin long back and i tried it with all VD's updated versions till now, it opens them but not clearly as the source file. there is bloring comes in most of the movies part (mainly were the movies goes to the fast scenes). can we expect that to be fixed?

One comment, will there be quad core support any time soon and does this version support the latest processors and gpus?
Use media coder to convert the files to avi. Its free and works like a charm.

How to set up circular recording, i.e. keeping the last X minutes of recording only?

Evropej, even better still use avisynth with directshowsource to load the wmv file.

There is a WMV plugin for Virtualdub http://home.comcast.net/~fcchandler/Plug..
BTW, great work on VirtualDub. You're a beautiful soul.

Fidelio, vdub opens the wmv files but says codec missing with your plugin. Sorry, I dont know if this is the rite place to ask.

Iím trying out VirtualDub version 1.9.3, and Iíve discovered, that threading (running the compressor in a different thread) only works in full processing mode. Could you please enable it in Fast recompress as well? It would really speed up things!
PS. Keep up the good work! Been using VirtualDub since version 1.2 and I love it!

I've tried to use new experimental feature: "3D hardware acceleration", but nothing changes in performance :(
Maybe this feature works only with few codecs? I've tried with Xvid, x264wfv, ffdshow video codec.
My system is: Core2Quad Q6600/2Gb DDR2-1066/GeForce 8800GTS 512Mb.

The option in question is 3D hardware FILTER acceleration -- it only works for video filters, not for codecs. The video filter also has to support it, which is not common at the moment.

Do any of the versions support Windows 7 64 bit with Core i7 processors? Currently running 32 bit version but would like to have 64 bit support. Not sure if the AMD version is for core i7. Thanks again for the software :)
evropej - 25 07 09 - 16:32
Both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions will run on that configuration, yes.
