rav1e GUI v1.8 released!

rav1e GUI v1.8 released!

Hi everyone,

Today, I’ve released rav1e GUI v1.8:

rav1e GUI v1.8
rav1e GUI v1.8

This release adds a pause/resume button that allows you to pause and resume the encoding session right from the GUI. It also allows you to resume a previous session if the software is closed or a system crash occurs.

When there’s an interrupted session, say, your machine crashed, those hours wasted encoding the video are not entirely lost, because now, when you open the software again, it will recognize that there was an unfinished encoding and will prompt you to resume it:

rav1e GUI v1.8 message 1
rav1e GUI v1.8 prompt to continue previous session message

If you accept, the GUI will load and the encoding will continue:

rav1e GUI v1.8 encoding
rav1e GUI v1.8 encoding

What the software actually does is that it will encode those .y4m files that are present in the temporary folder. The software will now delete the .y4m files on-demand as soon as the segment encode finishes, so shall a crash occur, only those files that are left will be put on the queue and start encoding in parallel depending on the number of threads that are set in the GUI.

Once the files finish encoding, then they will be concatenated and the audio will be encoded to Opus and it will be merged along with the concatenated video to generate the final file.

Download

You can download this release at GitHub here: https://github.com/moisesmcardona/rav1e_gui/releases/tag/v1.8r2

As usual, it includes the latest rav1e build.

Enjoy!

rav1e GUI v1.6
rav1e GUI v1.6

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.

Announcing rav1e GUI v1.3

Announcing rav1e GUI v1.3

Hi everyone,

I have released rav1e GUI v1.3:

rav1e GUI v1.3
rav1e GUI v1.3

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.

You can download this new version in GitHub here:
https://github.com/moisesmcardona/rav1e_gui/releases/v1.3

Also, the source code can be found here:
https://github.com/moisesmcardona/rav1e_gui

rav1e GUI v1.2 released!

rav1e GUI v1.2 released!

Hi everyone,

Today, I’ve released a new version of rav1e_gui:

rav1e GUI V1.2
rav1e GUI V1.2

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.

You can download this new version here:

Enjoy!
