2018-02-26 - neutrino8@opensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.8
* Set the eq saturation default value to 1.0 (same as filter default)
* Add the colorspace and colormatrix filters when doing an HDR
to SDR conversion
* Lower tonemap desat strength to 2.8
* Support white point adaptation for HDR to SDR
* Moved the colorspace filter after the scale one
* Moved the pixel format filter near the end of the filter chain
2018-02-20 - neutrino8@opensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.7
* Fixed an issue where in some cases write-testing the output
directory will fail due usage of readlink -f instead of
readlink -m
* Update transfer chars to support latest changes to zimg from git
2018-01-09 - neutrino8@opensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.6
* Moved the eq filter to almost the end of the video filter chain
as it can lead to banding in certain cases in case the filter
is in front of most other ones
* If the eq filter is used, also insert the format one after it
if a pixel format has been chosen
* Fixed a possible devision by 0 that may occur when one copies
audio and the bitrate for metadata is reported as N/A by ffprobe
2018-01-04 - neutrino8@opensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.5
* Don't hardcode the desaturation strength of the tonemap filter
but let is be an option
* Removed the matrix and primaries options in the zscale filter
as it leads to over-saturation of colors
* Support tweaking the tonemap algorithms for HDR to SDR conversion
* Support applying color saturation correction when doing an HDR
to SDR conversion
* Added bt2020-12 to the list of transfers when doing color
characteristics copy
* Added HDR_to_SDR_instructions.txt file to the package
2018-01-01 - neutrino8@opensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.4
* Reworked the video_chars_func() function and added reporting
of video bit depth
* Initial support for audio codec metadata when doing audio
* Increased default E-AC-3 audio bitrate from 768 to 960 kbps
* Set dialnorm for AC-3/E-AC-3 to its FFmpeg default (-31)
* Use a desat value of 2.5 for the tonemap filter when doing HDR
to SDR conversions
* Don't use pix_fmts in the format filter. It is not really needed
* Removed 12-bit options from the video_pixfmt_func() function
* Cosmetics
2017-12-27 - neutrino8@opensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.3
* Renamed array variable CHARS to VCHARS in the video_chars_func()
* Report pixel format in the video_chars_func() function
* Use -v quiet instead of -v error log level for ffprobe
* Cosmetics
2017-12-26 - neutrino8@opensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.2
* Initial support for HDR to SDR conversions. Requires
FFmpeg to be compiled with the zimg library as it
needs the zscale filter
2017-10-22 - neutrino8@opensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.1
* Support dialog level normalization for AC3/EAC3 audio
2017-09-29 - neutrino8@opensuse.org
- Update to version 1.2.0
* Support setting the output video aspect ratio
2017-08-23 - neutrino8@opensuse.org
- Update to version 1.1.9
* Support full chroma input for the software scaler
