  • When you merge movies containing chapters with others without chapters, the video tracks would remain separated, thus preventing native saving in MP4 or AVI formats. Fixed.

  • Using a file name several times for saving during a SimpleMovieX session would cause confusion. Fixed.
  • Saving of MP4 files over 4GB in size, or containing RTP tracks, would fail due to size check error. Fixed.
  • When Cut actions are used while a chapter name is being edited, it gives unexpected result. Fixed.
  • "Add to Movie" and "Add to Selection & Scale" does Paste instead of Add, under certains conditions. Fixed.
  • In Audio Sync pane, the numeric field is only active when you click on it. Sometimes the comma and decimal separator were wrongly interpreted. Fixed.
