This new release adds Drag-and-Drop support, which means you can now drag and drop a video file into the GUI or software executable and it will be used as the input automatically. No need to browse for the input video file again! That is, of course, if you use the new drag and drop feature.
Today, I’ve released rav1e GUI v1.4. This new release adds several new options and improvements.
First, the GUI has been updated to provide a logging text area, where you can see the rav1e encoding progress:
You can also see there is a new CPU Threads option, a check box to enable PSNR output in the log and a new Advanced Encoder Options button that will bring the following new window:
The latest rav1e code added a few new parameters that you can control in that window. These are advanced options, and it’s best to leave it untouched. After all, your input file is first pre-processed with ffmpeg which will split your video into several y4m files that rav1e accepts as they are. However, since rav1e supports these new parameters, I went ahead and added them.
In the future, I’ll add a new feature to skip the preprocessing if an input .y4m file is already provided. For now, however, these are big additions to the GUI software, especially the addition of the log.
Complete v1.4 changelog
Added a log to show progress per rav1e encoding instance
Added CPU Threads setting
Added PSNR setting to show PSNR metrics in the log
Added Advanced Encoder Options setting window
Added Tune Setting in the Advanced Encoder Options window
Added Color Primaries settings in the Advanced Encoder Options window.
This new version adds the new min-keyframe argument to the GUI as well as making the existing keyframe be the max keyframe interval. This means you can now specify a number of frames to be the minimum and maximum keyframe interval and rav1e will make keyframes according to these specified numbers. If you’d like to just use a single keyframe interval, you can specify the same number in the minimum and maximum value boxes.
Another change is that you can now save your video using the Matroska container. This is in addition to the WebM container. Lastly, I renamed piece to part in the GUI, which is used to specify the length of each video part when splitting the video to accelerate encoding.
As usual, this release includes the latest version of rav1e as well as the latest version of opusenc.
This version adds a piece seconds parameter that you can modify to split the video file into the specified seconds amount part. This gives you greater control on how long should the parts be to encode them to AV1 using rav1e.
