Programming Saturday: rav1e GUI

Programming Saturday: rav1e GUI

Hi everyone, Today, I spent the afternoon programming my rav1e GUI software. It’s been about a month since I last released a rav1e GUI update, and rav1e itself has improved by then. While I still haven’t released a new GUI version, I did some programming to it to add some of the new rav1e features. Unfortunately, the tests were not successful and I believe this has to do to some changed in the encoder itself. Don’t worry, I’ve opened an…

Introducing the new, better PAQCompress GUI

Hi everyone, I started this year being productive and have coded for the past couple of days, hence my absence of posts in this site. I’ve worked on updated a graphical user interface I wrote several years ago for the PAQ Compression software. At the time, I had limited skills writing code, and my GUIs were not that great. Hence, I took that software and rewrote it from scratch to provide a better user experience. I also updated the software…
