New features 1. x265 can now refine analysis from a previous HEVC encode (using options --refine-inter, and --refine-intra), or a previous AVC encode (using option --refine-mv-type). The previous encode’s information can be packaged using the x265_analysis_data_t data field available in the x265_picture object. 2. Basic support for segmented (or chunked) encoding added with --vbv-end that can specify the status of CPB at the end of a segment. String this together with --vbv-init to encode a title as chunks while maintaining VBV compliance! 3. --force-flush can be used to trigger a premature flush of the encoder. This option is beneficial when input is known to be bursty, and may be at a rate slower than the encoder. 4. Experimental feature --lowpass-dct that uses truncated DCT for transformation.
Hi everyone. I've been the head of the x265 project and the head of MulticoreWare's video business from the start. But I need to let you know that I've decided to move on, joining Beamr as VP Strategy. x265 has a strong team, and it's in good hands. I'll hand this Doom9 account over to someone on the MulticoreWare team.
