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
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!
