VirtualDub v1.6.0 released Avery Lee has released a new version of his excellent video editing and capturing tool VirtualDub. One of the most welcome new features is (limited) support for 64-bit AMD Athlon64 processors.
Here is an excerpt from the list of added features:

- Native AMD64 build (see Release Notes for restrictions)
- New "perspective" video filter can deproject subimages that are displayed obliquely in a scene
- YUV formats can now be directly selected for decompression and compression
- Planar YUV formats are now supported for both display and output
- Added preliminary DirectX 9 (D3D9) display driver support, with support for filter mode selection and multipass bicubic filtering. This driver must be manually enabled in Preferences
- Added OpenGL display driver, with support for filter mode selection. This driver must be manually enabled in Preferences
- Frame seeking is now incremental so that extremely long frame distances between key frames no longer hang the app during the preload
- Added support for the PRELOAD flag on video decompression to speed up seeking
- New position slider that displays frame number markers and supports mouse wheel scrolling beyond 32K
- Fast recompress format is reported in log
- Basic movement keyboard shortcuts now work in filter preview
- JPEG image sequence input and output is now supported
- Single images can be opened as video files
- Integrated DV video decoder
- Audio is now decoded from type-1 DV files
- Audio filter dialog now has a position control to allow previewing at arbitrary points
- The frame indicator in the timeline control can now be customized via Preferences/Timeline

The build is still experimental, and there might be (and probably will be) unexpected crashes.

@neewbie: You realize that it's not just an Athlon64 version right? There are a lot of changes that don't have anything to do with which CPU you use.

When the market completes the transition between 32 bit to 64 bit, trust me, the only thing you'll find bad about it is that you need electricity to run the damn thing =P


Everyone is entitled to their own true opinion. Either respect that or don't.
