AMVpack - All the tools in one package! (9/7/2020)

Post by TsunderbirdSeth » Tue Jun 05, 2018 7:40 pm

AMVpack is an installer package for all the tools commonly used for handling and preparing footage for use in making AMVs. This is similar to AMVapp but is more up to date and will have an expiration date so that old versions will not run. I plan to keep this as up to date as possible and will try to have one release a year to help maintain the latest usable versions of any particular item in the package.

Download: Windows (x86/x64) / macOS / Sources
NOTE: THIS PACKAGE EXPIRES AND WILL NOT INSTALL AFTER DECEMBER 31, 2020!

Last macOS Update: 9/7/2020
Last Windows Update: 7/20/2020

IMPORTANT: macOS users may find it easier to install by disabling Gatekeeper. The easiest method is to open terminal and run the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo spctl --master-disable
NOTE: It is recommended that you re-enable this after the install!

Release Notes for Version 1.3.1.1 (Windows):
- Added Added AviSynth+ & Removed AviSynth 2.6: Due to slow development of the main AviSynth branch the decision was made to move over to AviSynth+ for the 32-bit releases as well, which currently has very active development with new features including support for the UHD color matrix.

- Added FFMS2: In past releases FFMS2 had been removed due to the false positive on some A/V software and because LSMASHSource decoded the same material. While LSMASHSource is the recommended choice for Blu-ray footage, development is not currently active and FFMS2 currently has active development going on.

- Removed AviSynth Info Tool: Development for this has been abandoned, there is no x64 version, and there are other command line alternatives out there. Additionally, since this pack is geared towards beginners, having such a tool was deemed unnecessary.

- Removed VirtualDub FFMpeg Input Plugin: This plugin allowed for VirtualDub to be used as a drag and drop solution for converting when filters were not needed, however it also interfered with AviSynth when trying to convert scripts. Since AMVtool serves this purpose and this plugin can cause compatibility issues, it was decided that this plugin should be removed.

AMVpack - All the tools in one package! (7/1/2020)

Release Notes for Version 1.0.1.6 (macOS):
- Added HavsFunc & Removed Anti-Aliasing Script - Initially a script specifically for anti-aliasing was included that had functions pulled from HavsFunc. In order to simplify tutorials the Anti-Aliasing script has been removed and HasvsFunc, along with other scripts required by it, has been added. The only plugin dependencies included for this new script are those needed by the Anti-Aliasing functions, if you are interested in using it's other functions please refer to the HavsFunc GitHub for a list of additional dependencies needed that can be found and downloaded in this doom9 thread.

- MKVToolNix - While we usually include the latest version, 41.0.0 is the last version that supports macOS Sierra (10.12), so in order to maintain compatibility that is the version included. New versions will be detected when running the tool, so users with macOS Mojave (10.14) or newer will be able to update that way. Additionally, to avoid replacing newer versions and also to align with the Windows installer, this tool is now not installed by default.

Release Notes for Version 1.3.1.5 (Windows):
- Added VirtualDub2 - In the past plugins were included to add support for other file types in VirtualDub, but they were eventually removed due to stability issues. This tool was started as a plugin and eventually became further development of VirtualDub itself. Since it is able to open a wide variety of file types and can export clips in various formats as well it had become one of the best tools for creating clips as an alternative to doing so in a NLE software.

- Removed VirtualDub - This tool has been a staple for a long time despite not having any active development for 7 years. While it will not be included anymore it will not be removed or replaced by newer installers.

Release Notes for Version 1.3.1.6 (Windows):
- Bugfix AviSynth+ Install - The last release was modified to have new installs migrate over to the AviSynth+ directory to align with the official AviSynth+ installer. Unfortunately something was missed in the code and the plugin directories were split across the AviSynth & AviSynth+ directories. While this does not affect the functionality of the software, it could cause some confusion for the end user if they need to add any additional plugins. Anyone who did a fresh install with the 7/1/2020 installer is encouraged to run the new installer.

- Bugfix Uninstaller - The changes in the installer for AviSynth+ were not accounted for in the uninstaller so it has been updated in this release. There was also a bug that would delete the plugins directory even if the user chose not to, this was patched, however the fix means the main install directory cannot be removed by the uninstaller.
