Release Notes: Fixes include a new video encoder backend based on the ffmpeg2theora utilities and a new parameter system for the scripting and console interface. Scripting now implements inheritance of objects and outputs precise debugging messages. Some new frei0r generators are included along with the BeTV script.
Release Notes: This release includes playback of flash vector animations, updates to the manual page, and some minor fixes.
Release Notes: Encoding in Ogg/Theora has been implemented so that FreeJ can now save to a movie file or stream live to an online Icecast2 server, while audio is being recorded as well from the soundcard. The scripting API has been improved, and various library dependencies are now included statically for easier and more portable source builds.
Release Notes: Fixes for usability and overall stability, OS X compatibility, and procedural video scripting. New features include rotation, zoom and spin of layers, live text insert, and Jazz mode.
Release Notes: FreeJ can now be scripted in (OO) for procedural editing of video. There is a new S-Lang text console to control live video also from remote locations (over SSH), particle generator and vertical text scroll layers, and experimental layers for flash and ffmpeg codecs. The Blit code has been rewritten, improving the quality of the images, existing layers have been enhanced, the overall speed has been improved, and there is more documentation. FreeJ now compiles and runs on the Apple/OS X and Linux/PPC platforms.
Release Notes: The core engine is now asynchronous, accepting multiple controllers at the same time. New features include a new GTK2 user interface, alpha channel blits, enhanced movie playback controls, framebuffer support, and text layer font selection. Performance has been remarkably optimized. YUV/RGB conversion has been re-engineered to support more video input formats. The API has been revisited and cleaned up. All CPU dependent code has been removed to correctly compile on OSX and big-endian machines.
Release Notes: This release brings performance and stability improvements with a rewritten text rendering layer and fixed avifile looping and some memory leaks. Dependencies from proprietary codecs were removed, and four new effect plugins were added: ripple, water, nervous, and cartoon.
Release Notes: A New TXT layer has been included, rendering text files word by word using TrueType fonts. There are also two new filters (Blur and Backlight) and upgrades to Transform filters. An important bugfix to video4linux grabbing should fix support for more capture devices, and there are other important code cleanups and fixes improving overall stability.
