V6 – professional quality media tools

V6-Q Main Interface


V6 is a multimedia tool suite designed to augment audio / video workflows in a professional environment. Tools are designed for high fidelity color accurate video conversions, detailed Exif quality reports and easy-to-use audio and video measurement tools – all driven by the industry standard ffmpeg

The V6-Q can be used for loading in any number of media files for automated sequential playback – great for previewing a day’s video session or playing your favorite tunes! Multiple windows may be opened for running multiple sessions and functions as well

V6 is also designed to run on a wide variety of PC systems and will work even with modest resources – the more powerful the system the better the performance, but V6 will also run on lesser hardware so you can put that old PC back to work cranking out media conversions and Exif Reports!

V6 is designed to run on 64-bit Windows systems only!

Current V6 utilities include:

  • Media Command Builder – for audio / video conversions (ffmpeg not included – see here for more info)
  • Video Player / Trimmer – select portions of video clips for conversion to save disc space and render time. Also creates subtitles (.srt format) and will output to standard EDL for use in other professional applications
  • File renaming utility – give your clips meaningful names using date / time stamps, simple numeric sequences or customized prefixes
  • Video Inspector – for comparing source and converted video clips with side-by-side views and dual color-picker for comparing RGB and HSL color values at the pixel level – requires normal desktop scaling for accuracy
  • Dual video scopes with CIE Color Graph utility for measuring color and luma levels
    Also generates SSIM and PSNG metrics for automatic comparisons
  • Exif Report Tool – generates detailed reports based on media clip Exif data and creates an html-based report view-able in any web browser
  • Audio and Surround Tool – trim audio files to specific length, create 5.1 surround channels from stereo and create AC3, DTS and WAV format 5.1 surround sound clips
  • Media Merge Tool – merge audio and video into a new video
  • Metadata and Album Art Tool – for creating mp3 or m4v audio with embedded metadata and artwork
  • Audio VU Meters – for monitoring audio playback with peak hold and adjustable threshold peak meters
  • NEW! MySQL Query Tool – provides a simplified interface for examining MySQL data captured during media conversion sessions or when building Exif Data Reports

V6 is also MySQL-enabled and can record all Exif Report data and conversions data for use with standard MySQL query tools

.NET 3.5 Missing – Windows 10

.NET 3.5 Framework

The latest versions of Windows do not ship with the .NET Framework version 3.5 required to run hdcinematics.com applications. Should you receive an missing .NET 3.5 Framework error try this:

Open Control Panel and Programs and Features – at the top left, click on “Turn Windows features on or off”

In the dialog box that appears, check the entry for .NET Framework 3.5 (includes .Net 2.0 and 3.0)

Hit OK and let Windows do its thing – once installed your applications should be ready to run

ffmpeg.exe not found

To avoid possible licensing issues , neither V6 nor VMac directly perform any video conversions and neither distribution contains ffmpeg.

The Media Command Builder and VMac both simply build a command-line for ffmpeg

To use the Media Command Builder and audio tools for conversions you will need to download and install ffmpeg.exe to your system PATH – or copy directly to the V6 application directory

NOTICE! V6 is now a 64-bit application. If you have installed previous versions of V6 you will need to re-install ffmpeg.exe into the new application directory located at C:\Program Files\Wayne R Norton\V6

(Previous application directory location was C:\Program Files (x86)\Wayne R Norton\V6)

You may need to manually uninstall versions earlier than 6.2.00 (although leaving earlier versions installed poses no problem)

The new version of V6 also allows you to set the directory location of ffmpeg.exe (right-click and select Preferences) – this makes experimenting with multiple versions of ffmpeg a snap
