Ffmpeg

Ffmpeg plugin introduces several improvements.

Pixel-format control added.

Predefined quality and Video System options provide a more intuitive user interface.

Software Updater

Realsoft 3D contains software updater which can detect, download and install new Realsoft 3D versions.

The software updater is configured for manual operation by default. It can be activated by selecting Help/Realsoft on the Web/Check for updates pull-down menu. You can also ask the operating system to start it automatically when booting up, in which case the software updater process runs on the background and uses task bar icon to notify you when new updates become available.
