DV Rack 2.0 HD

Free Update for DV Rack to Version 2.1.1570.0 (11.7MB)

This update is recommended for all users. It contains the following enhancement and program fixes:

Enhancement: DV Rack can now record HDV in the MPEG-2 Program Stream (.MPEG) format as well as the .M2T format. The MPEG format provides greater compatibility with NLE?s, most notably Final Cut Pro, which could not recognize MPEG-2 Transport Streams.

Changed: Keyboard shortcuts for Vertical and Horizontal Flip, from CTRL+V & CTRL+H to ALT+SHIFT+V and ALT+SHIFT+H. This change was made to free up CTRL+V for its conventional assignment to the Paste function. (Note: You can customize these and most other accelerator keys by editing the Keyboard Shortcuts.txt file, which you?ll find in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Serious Magic\DV Rack version.)

Enhancement: DV Rack now supports time lapse and stop motion recording as well as pausing and resuming recording with HDV. (not supported in M2T mode: must use MPG format)
NOTE: With some HDV cameras, DV Rack does not support these special recording modes in 24P.

Fixed: On some computers with more than 1 GB of RAM, DV Rack would stop updating the video after 30 seconds.

Fixed: DVCPro HD clips shot at greater than 30 fps in 720P had duplicate frames.

Fixed: Crash on opening a Field Monitor when the DV Rack window was sitting entirely on the second display.

Fixed: Clips recorded at 24PA had some interlaced frames.

Fixed: The Spectra 60 was sampling a point four pixels to the right of the tip of the mouse pointer.

Fixed: With the image flipped, the Spectra 60 would not work.

Fixed: Several entries in the Field Monitor Menu operated on a higher resolution than was displayed, so the arrow buttons appeared not to be working.

Fixed: HDD Space Display and HDD Record Stop values were inaccurate with DVCPro50 and DVCPro HD. These values have been changed from minutes to megabytes.

Fixed: When recording was paused, the Play button did not blink.

NOTE re: TIME LAPSE AND STOP MOTION RECORDING AND PAUSING/RESUMING RECORDING: These features are not supported with any 24P video.
