This release changes some encoding flags that will soon be deprecated, removing some warnings that were being printed on the screen, and making it compatible with the latest releases of the SVT-AV1 encoder.
This new version moves the HME options to a new Advanced Options window and adds a new setting for specifying the GOP type:
By default, the GOP Type will be Closed which allows seeking in the video. SVT-AV1 uses the Open type by default and the resulting videos in the previous SVT-AV1 GUI versions would have problems seeking. This is now solved by this new option.
Additionally, this version have the following improvements:
The First pass encoding will be skipped if the software was interrupted while performing the second pass encode.
A bug in the second pass where the additional arguments were not passed correctly has been fixed.
You can download this new version on GitHub by clicking here. The new version comes bundled with the newest SVT-AV1 release, which I’ve built yesterday using the media-autobuild_suite.
This release adds an option to prevent the use of Pipes which should make encoding stable. The downside of this is that the software will need to create a temporary .y4m file which may be huge depending on the video to be converted.
It’s been a long time since I’ve released a new software update. That’s why today, I finally introduce to you SVT-AV1 GUI v1.1:
Starting with this release, files are encoded without the need to create temporary .y4m files. This greatly speeds up the encoding as it no longer needs to create those huge files. Instead, it makes use of Windows Named Pipes to pass the ffmpeg output to SVT-AV1.
This is a Graphical User Interface for SVT-AV1. It is similar to rav1e GUI, but instead of using rav1e, it uses SVT-AV1. Both software achieves the same purpose of converting videos to the new AV1 format.
In this post, I’ll show you how to download ffmpeg to use with SVT-AV1 GUI. FFmpeg is required to extract the video file to .y4m, encode the audio to Opus, and merge both files when the encode is finished.
2. Select the nightly build which is the first one shown in “Version”. Select the 64-bit Windows version if you have a 64-bit machine, and select “Static” in the Linking column. Then, click on “Download Build”:
3. Click on the downloaded file:
4. Go to the “ffmpeg” folder, and then to the “bin” folder. You should see “ffmpeg.exe” inside:
5. Extract it and place it in the location where you have SVT-AV1 GUI:
That’s it! Enjoy!
