AMVtool’s PixelBlended Debut!

Big news! PixelBlended Studios is proud to announce that AMVtool is now included in AMVpack, our software package specifically designed for AMV editors. AMVtool is one, convenient software for encoding and recontainering! It is a GUI for FFMPEG that satisfies all your converting needs! In addition to handling almost all the formats that editors will use, it also helps out by automatically adjusting certain encode settings that are often incorrectly selected. Here are some of the features:

  • Available on Linux, OSX, and Windows.
  • Automatically chooses the color matrix based on the existing file or guesses based on resolution.
  • Easy button for setting up file(s) to be recontainered.
  • Queue for batch encoding.
  • Shows bit depth of the currently selected video stream.
  • Supports encoding of AviSynth (Windows Only) & VapourSynth scripts.
  • Supports encoding to various lossless and lossy formats, including but not limited to x264 & x265.
  • Supports multiple audio streams.

We are so happy to share this new innovation with you! We hope that it will make many editors’ lives easier. All thanks should go to l33tmeatwad and those who have assisted him through the software betas. Please try out the other applications available through AMVpack and check out our English AMV 101 guide at pixelblended.com.

Website Update

It has been a while since we last updated the website, and this was a major one. The AMV Basics section was updated with the Video Basics and Audio Basics sections finally being added, and you can look forward to the AMV Concept Theory section being added sometime this summer. The tutorials also received a major up date with new information and tweaks to the existing guides.

Website Update

It has been a while since the content on the website received a full update.  There are new pages for the members that joined PixelBlended Studios this summer and the pages for the other members have been updated as well.  There were also updates to the guides and walkthroughs section as well as an overall update to the organization of that section.  We added a link in the editing tutorials section to the AMVlog’s  YouTube channel which has advanced video tutorials for editors to learn new techniques and we are looking into making video tutorials for AMV beginners.
