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.
