    Freeware Version 0.95

    Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version. Note that this freeware version includes all bugfixes to date. Also note that the freeware version will not include the enhanced capabilities of the Pro Edition -- and future releases will be limited to minor changes and bug fixes only.

    CHANGES MADE TO FREEWARE VERSION (since v0.94)

    - Modified some status routines to ensure compatibility of the INI and INF files between Freeware version and the Professional Edition.

    - Fixed an error that could cause ""DVD Rebuilder experienced a buffer overflow. Error #0004.." on some sources.

    - Corrected "Runtime Error 75" that could happen at start of rebuild.

    - Modified the OPV encoding prediction algorithm so that it will take fewer passes on each VTS.

    - Fixed an error that could cause SCR value to "drift" higher over time under some unique circumstances and cause timing irregularities and stutter.

    Default Rebuilder Pro Final 1.01

    10-08-05

    Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

    Version 1.01

    - Found and corrected an inconsistency related to the SML_AGLI table that could affect various chapter and searching functions on ILVU sections.

    Version 1.00

    - Updated the method for one pass encoding prediction for HC encoder. The changes in RC6.0 had a negative impact on the prediction for HC and caused it to require more passes rather than fewer.

    - Fixed an error that could cause SCR value to drift over time under some unique circumstances and cause timing irregularities with possible stutter.

    - Changed the default value for 32k padding to "off". Also removed the setting from the ISO Options form. While the format is compliant with DVD standards, there are too many 3rd party packages that have trouble reading ISO images with padding. I've decided the benefits are outweighed by the disadvantages. For those purists who wish to enable it anyway -- it can be enabled by adding the line "Enable_32K_Padding=1" in the [Options] area of REBUILDER.INI. The older "Disable_32K_Padding" is now ignored and should be removed.

    - Modified HC values to preset GOP size to 12 rather than AUTO for sources that will receive pulldown flags. This is necessary to ensure GOP time length parameters stay within DVD specs.

    - Corrected an error that could cause a "Runtime Error 9" during rebuild under certain conditions while processing reencoded ILVU sequences.

    - Changed the default state for "Status Logging" to ON.

    - Implemented checks to ensure the DVD Volume Label is checked and enforced for maximum length (31 chars).

    - Added some updates that will make DVD-RB work more reliably with the output of DVDFab Decrypter.

    - Added support for burning ISO images with ImgBurn, Lightning UK's latest burner. Use is automatic, DVD Rebuilder will recognize when ImgBurn is installed and it will be used. DVD Decrypter now becomes the secondary choice for burning.

    - Fixed an error in which "Create/Write Project ISO Image" was not properly writing the created image to the blank DVD disc.

    - Improved error detection in Write-To-Disc function.

    - Enabled a type of "2-Click" mode for those using add-ons following PREPARE. Now you can click REBUILD following a PREPARE and it if ENCODE has not already been performed, it will be automatically executed. It can also be used to RESUME jobs that were stopped during ENCODE.

    rebuilder 1.02
    10-29-05:

    CHANGES MADE TO THIS PRO VERSION
    - Added a new feature under the OPTIONS menu. Now you
    can select "Audio Track Remapping" and DVD-RB will
    make changes necessary so that defaults for audio
    streams can be changed. This is especially useful
    when DTS is the default and has been removed, or for
    those who would like the default startup track to be
    some language other than the original.
    - Added "Dynamic Peak Analysis" which determines peak
    bitrates from the original stream and uses the info
    to set segment maximum bitrates. This should improve
    quality by more accurately distributing available
    bandwidth. It should also eliminate some possible
    sources for playback stutter.
    - Fixed a bug in which attempting to apply filters
    against a source that would already fit on a DVD-5
    could halt the batch job waiting for a user prompt.
    - Modified the "Shutdown at One-Click Completion"
    option under the MODE menu. Now it is "Shutdown at
    end of REBUILD". This was done in order to allow
    usage with the "2-click" method introduced in the
    previous release.
    - Added ProCoder under the OPTIONS menu and added the
    ability to set the quality level.
    - Fixed "Error 35601, Element Not Found" error that
    could occur on oddly formatted sources.
    - Changed the Installed default operational mode to
    "One Click." Earlier versions defaulted to "Three
    Click" mode.
    - Corrected setting in which GOP size of 12 was being
    forced too liberally when using HC encoder.
    - Per request, added a new INI parameter that enables
    the insertion of text in blanked segments. For
    example, by adding "BlankText=This Video has been
    Blanked" to the the "[Options]" are of REBUILDER.INI
    will insert that text on blanked screens. The text
    has a limit of 40 characters. By default no text is
    inserted.
    - Added bitrate sanity checks for circumstances in
    which the calculated bitrate might be greater than
    the original. This can sometimes happen in Movie-Only
    modes. An analysis of reports of stutter occurring
    on certain players has determined it is linked to the
    reintegration of the original audio stream with
    higher-that-original bitrates. It is possible to
    override this check (but it is NOT RECOMMENDED) by
    adding the hidden flag "OVERRIDE_BITRATE_CHECK=1" to
    the "[Options]" area of REBUILDER.INI.

    Default DVD Rebuilder 0.96 Freeware

    Freeware Version 0.96


    Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version. Note that this freeware version includes all bugfixes to date. Also note that the freeware version will not include the enhanced capabilities of the Pro Edition -- and future releases will be limited to minor changes and bug fixes only.

    CHANGES MADE TO FREEWARE VERSION (since v0.95)

    - Modified code to perform more aggressive detection and removal of layer breaks.

    - Added some updates that will make DVD-RB work more reliably with the output of DVDFab Decrypter.

    - Improved calling procedure so DVD-RB does not use as much CPU time (leaving more for the encoder).

    - Corrected maximum bitrate allocation on NTSC interlaced sources in order to assure adherence to specifications.

    - Corrected an error in which source filenames that are a mixture of uppercase/lowercase letters might cause "Error 0003, buffer overflow".

    - Updated OPV code to more accurately hit the specified target size on NTSC non-telecined sources.

    - Added measures to more accurately measure bitrates in the source stream and then distributes it accordingly in the backup.

    Professional Edition Version 1.03

    Below is a summary of the changes/updates associated with this version (Pro release):

    - Improved the peak bitrate determination algorithm. It now more accurately determines source bitrates and works properly with NTSC interlaced sources.

    - Fixed a bug that could cause "Runtime Error 380" under some circumstances. This should make audio removal in DVD ReMake Pro compatible with DVD-RB.

    - Corrected an error in which source filenames that are a mixture of uppercase/lowercase letters might cause "Error 0003, buffer overflow".

    - Corrected a setting that might, under certain circumstances, allow NTSC interlaced ILVU sources to fall out of specifications.

    - Fixed an error that under specific conditions could create video streams that exceed maximum bitrates.

    - Updated OPV code to help prevent undersizing when encoding NTSC sources or when selecting a GOP size other that 12. A special thanks to Rippraff for nailing this one.

    - Fixed an error in which it was possible that an audio glitch might be inserted at a layer break or point where the SCR gets reset to zero.

    - Added an option to the "Select ISO Output Options" dialog that will remove the .ISO image from the output path after a successful image burn. This is meant to minimize required disc space, please use it cautiously.

    Professional Edition Version 1.04

    November 28th, 2005 (v1.04)
    CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION

    - Reorganized the "Options" configuration. It is no longer accessed as a Menu. Now it is accessed
    via a Tree View on either the tab bar, or, for for pre-version 1.00 skins, via an "Options"
    choice in the "Settings" menu. The menu had grown too large for easy use. Some "quick access" items
    remain under the "Settings" menu.

    - Added a setting under the "Mode" menu in which you can select all Extras for Half-D1. This
    option will not reduce bitrates for Extras (like Half/Half), but settings selected under "Steal
    Space from Extras" will be applied. This provides more granularity so the option can be used more
    effectively.

    - Corrected an issue in which certain odd original anomalies might cause timing issues. A special
    thanks to Magic144 for finding this one.

    - Fixed an error that, under certain circumstances, might cause video ticks or stutter at chapter or
    segment break points.

    - Tweaked the muxing algorithm to facilitate better video playback buffering control.

    - Changed the default setting for the Viewer/Editor so its calls use long filenames. Some users were
    having trouble getting it to work properly.

    - Updated the Installer to use a newer version of HC Encoder (v0.16, 11/12/2005). This file is also included in the "Update Only" zip file.

    - Updated installer to use EclPro v0.52. Includes better compatibility and support for Express
    versions.

    - Corrected an error in which an erroneous input stream might cause DVD-RB to "hang" during PREPARE
    phase looking for a nonexistent extension start code.

    Default Pro 1.05

    Professional Edition 1.05

    December 14th, 2005 (v1.05)

    CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION

    - Added "Template" options under the "File" menu.
    Now you can load and save settings that you find to be especially useful for different types of sources, such as film, anime, cartoon, CG, series discs, etc. All you have to do to create a new template is to set up Rebuilder in the way you'd like to encode a certain type of disc, for example: the CCE or HC bias, matrices, GOP sizes, or filters -- then select "Save Template".

    If you have settings you find useful for certain source types, post the template on the Rebuilder forum at www.doom9.org or www.dvd-rb.com and it may be added to future DVD Rebuilder versions.

    - Corrected an error that could result in "Error 0006, Framecount differences..." when working with the null output of some ripping programs.

    - Fixed a sizing issue in which unreferenced audio streams that exist in the original VOB files were included in the output -- but weren't properly accounted for in the size calculation.

    - Modified the ReJig calling procedure so that DVD-RB uses less processor time during calls. This should speed up ReJig.

    - Change the GOP setting for HC encoder so that if version 0.16 or greater is used, "*GOP 12 2" is not forced for FILM sources.

    - Added dummy pre-command and "Exit" post-command to the IFO generated by "Movie Only" encodes. It seems there are certain players that will not play correctly unless a command table is present. A special thanks to rayvt for finding the cause and cure of this problem.

    - Corrected an error which might cause DVD-RB to "hang" at the 100% during PREPARE.

    - Revamped the keyfile process. Too many folks were having trouble using the .RBK files. Now DVD Rebuilder will download the keyfile itself.
    The keyfile is also now linked to an individual computer via System ID. I've tried to make it as painless as possible. Please read the HELP information in the registration dialog. A new EXE file called Reg-RB.EXE is included in the
    DVD-RB directory and it can be run to get the system id and download your key for any computer upon which you wish to run Rebuilder.. It is called automatically by DVD-RB when needed.

    There is a default limit of 5 System IDs allowed for each registered e-mail address.

    Professional Edition 1.051

    December 17th, 2005 (v1.05.1)

    CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION

    - Fixed a problem in which the default templates that are created by DVD-RB are done so with inappropriate space characters inserted -- making the values not load correctly.

    - Corrected an issue in which the SYSTEM ID may change if a network adapter is removed or added to the system. This is especially noticable in laptop computers. Note, however, that DVD-RB will continue to use the previously obtained SYSTEM ID unless the key file has been deleted. This is to
    prevent unnecessary reregistration on systems that don't experience this issue. But it is recommended that you delete your old key and create a new one to ensure you don't experience this problem. All user SYSTEM ID counts have been reset to zero to accomodate this.

    - Fixed an problem in which a small percentage of users could not connect to the download site and the key file had to be requested via e-mail.

    - Updated the installation package to install ReJig v0.5f. This version includes several updates that give quality improvements that were implemented by DragonGodz.

    - Updated the installation package to install HC encoder version 0.16.1. This version corrects some minor bugs.

    Professional Edition 1.05.2

    December 30th, 2005

    Changes:

    - Corrected an error in which VIDEO_TS file for a Movie Only disc could have a wrong value set in the First Play PGC table.

    - Corrected the PGC Program Table size for the IFO created in Movie-Only mode so it's length is always a multiple of two. This cause playback problems in at least one player model.

    - Lowered the default VBR minimum bitrate for CCE to 300 (from 500). It was set to 500 in v0.83 in order to circumvent problems with CCE 2.70.
    These seem to be no longer present, but as a precaution code was added to dynamically increase the to value to 500 in the event of problems.
    Also added code that will automaticlly adjust it back up to 500 if an encoding pass fails. The lower value should result in slightly better overall picture quality as fewer bits are wasted on low demand scenes.

    - Fixed an error in the registration process in which using uppercase characters (the first time) in the e-mail field might make the registration fail repeat upon each load.

    - Reduced the aggressiveness of the layer break removal, as some Sony Players appear to be very strict in how they handle streams marked with the "seamless" flag. If you wish to override this setting, add "AGGRESSIVE_LAYER_BREAK_REMOVAL=1" to the "[Options]" area of the REBUILDER.INI file.

    - Updated HCBatch.exe to the most recent version.

    - Increased GOP buffer size to help reduce the likelihood of buffer overflows (0003 and 0004) on some rare sources. Note, though, that 0003 and 0004 are indicators of a malformed source -- and most typically indicate a corrupted source file. This is usually due to preprocessing.

    - Modified the CCE Advanced Settings dialog so it uses sliders instead of dropdown boxes.

    Professional Edition 1.06


    January 16th, 2006 (v1.06)


    - Added support for DGDECODE v1.4.5. This update
    includes many enhancements/bug fixes and makes
    DVD-RB's support consistent with Neuron2's most
    current release. Support for MPEG2DEC3DG and
    DGDECODE v1.1.0 remains. This update includes
    a fix which corrects a rare problem in which an
    encoder may "freeze" while trying to encode a
    segment. The DVD-RB Installer now includes and
    installs DGDECODE v1.4.5 by default.

    - Added coding for handling "garbage" sectors
    that were found to have caused problems during
    the PREPARE phase on at least one disc. Thanks
    to SpazzHH for finding a disc in which it was
    repeatable.

    - Modified the AVS position of the trim() command.
    Performing the trim after the insertion of some
    optional filters can give better results.

    - Updated some cosmetic features for consistency.
    Changed slider for HC Bias, and added TextColor
    variable to CCE settings Skin.

    - Corrected a Button Over Video (BOV) issue. In
    some very active streams BOV may not have been
    reproduced properly.

    - Corrected an error in the REBUILD module that
    could misinterpret certain input streams and as
    a result, throw a "ERROR 006: DVD-RB...framecount
    differences" error.

    - Fixed a problem in which an extremely unlikely set
    of circumstances might cause audio to move out of
    sync over the course of a segment.

    - Fixed a bug in which remapping audio while set to
    "Movie-Only" mode would cause a Runtime Error 9.

    - Added a module that performs key download via web
    in the event of direct connection failure.

    - Removed annoying "VOB Count" warning in Movie-Only
    modes.

    Default Professional Edition 1.06.1

    Professional Edition 1.06.1

    January 26th, 2006 (v1.06.1)
    CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION

    - In order to facilitate the changed iDCT options of DGDECODE v1.4.5, the iDCT selection table is now changed depending upon the version selected.

    - Updated the skins to reflect newer button format on the CCE Settings dialog.

    - Added the selected reduction percentage to the "Steal Space from Extras is enabled" line that is displayed and logged.

    - Corrected a bug in which certain parameters were not being loaded correctly when starting by double-clicking on a .RBP file.

    - Fixed a bug related to field order detection and encoding introduced in v1.06 in which a specific set of (unusual) circumstances might cause the order to be incorrectly detected.

    - Updated routines to take advantage of newer CCE abilities (v2.69 and greater) to output bottom field first (BFF) interlaced streams. Now when the original stream is BFF -- the new stream can retain this characteristic.

    - Enhanced the REBUILD engine so it will now accept field based picture structures. This might improve ProCoder encoding of interlaced streams (if enabled). It will also stop Error #0006 when using ReJig or "No compression" on streams that use that structure.

    Default Professional Edition 1.07

    Professional Edition 1.07


    February 6th, 2006 (v1.07)
    CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION

    - Implemented menu encoding. This new feature will now scan and reencode menu segments in the same way as standard title sets. This should save some space, allow for more efficient use of space, and improve quality. It is especially useful on titles that have large amounts of space used by menus. The default setting encodes any menu that is over 50MB.
    This can be overridden by setting a value for the "hidden" parameter VTSM_MIN_SIZE" in the [Options] area of the REBUILDER.INI. It works similar to the "VTS_MIN_SIZE" parameter. It is recommended that you keep the default setting, as encoding segments that smaller than 50MB usually only increases encoding time without significantly improving qualty. If you prefer no menu encoding at all, this feature can be disabled or enabled via the Settings" menu.

    - Added code to enable multiple encoder instances. The feature is available under the "Settings" menu. On multiple core computers and some very fast single core computers using hyperthreading this will take advantage of unused processor time. This concept has been proven in concept using HC encoder, QuEnc, and ProCoder (via ECLPRO) in Rumbah's "DualDVDRB" software. Please note that if your computer already runs at 100% of its processor time this option will not likely improve your speed and in fact may make it slightly slower. But, on some processors and some encoders it has been reported to increase speeds by as much as 30-50%. Heavy Kudos to Rumbah for exploring and proving this concept via "DualDVDRB."

    - Corrected "Runtime Error 55" that could occur if attempting to force-close DVD-RB during encoding.

    - Corrected a reference to "32-Bit Floating Point" in the iDCT choices for DGDECODE v1.4.5. It actually is "64-Bit Floating Point".

    - Corrected an error in which the intra_DC_precision setting could be set incorrectly in CCE Basic and CCE SP v2.50 under some circumstances.

    - Fixed an error in which the "Enable Output" option wasn't being properly reset on project loads or during batch encoding.

    - Added Menu Segments to Segment Editor so they can be blanked or slideshow adjusted. Be careful, as disabling a menu background can sometimes make the function of the menu impossible to understand. Menu segments are listed as "VTM_nn" in the editor.

    - Updated the installer to include HC Version 0.17.

    Default Professional Edition 1.07.1

    Professional Edition 1.07.1


    The following changes were made for this update:

    - IMPORTANT BUG FIX: Corrected an error in the Menu
    Encoding module in which some menus may be encoded
    without audio.

    - IMPORTANT BUG FIX: Corrected an error in which the
    encoding process can "hang" while doing an ILVU
    segment.

    - Modified OPV maximum bitrate calculation during the
    prediction phase in order to prevent possible
    "OPV VBV ovf" errors.

    - Updated the Installer to use a version of ECLPRO
    that supports multiple instances.

    Default Professional Edition 1.08.1

    Professional Edition 1.08.1

    February 20th, 2006 (v1.08)

    CHANGES MADE TO PRO VERSION

    - NEW FEATURE: Added automatic detection and extraction
    of segments that don't need reencoding. This makes it
    it possible, e.g., for "Steal Space from Extras",
    "Half-D1/Half Space", Menu Encoding, or possibly even
    simple removal of a large audio track to allow the main
    feature's video to be kept completely intact. Included
    a "Force Reencode" selection under the "Options" menu
    which will override this feature when you wish filters
    to be applied.

    - Added a "Force No Reencoding" to the Video Segment
    Editor/Viewer. This will allow you to select segments
    for which you wish the video portion to remain intact.
    Note that this setting reduces the "recovered" amount
    that can be added to the feature -- and can lead to a
    negative feature bitrate. When this happens the "Save
    Settings" button is disabled.

    - Added a selection under the "Settings" menu that
    allows you to choose to size for DVD-5 (single
    layer) or for DVD-9 (dual layer) output. Also added
    DL target size adjustment parameter for each encoder.
    You can set size for DLTargetSectors or any of the
    encoders (just add "DL" to any of the old target
    settings, e.g. HCTargetSectors would become
    DLHCTargetSectors). This capability was added to
    satisfy requests -- but also to support other new
    upcoming features. Note that the "DVD-9" option is
    new and SHOULD BE CONSIDERED "BETA" -- use with
    caution until it is completely debugged.

    - Added an option under the "Settings" menu that allows
    you to set the process priority of the encoder to
    NORMAL or IDLE (low) priority. This can be useful for
    times when you are using your computer for other
    purposes while encoding. Careful, though, using the
    IDLE priority can also slow down encoding dramatically
    when any other process is in progress.

    - Fixed an error that could cause certain types of menu
    still pictures to not display -- causing what could
    be perceived as several other menu problems.

    - Corrected a miscalculation related to menu encoding
    that might lead to oversizing (especially when using
    TargetSector settings that have been increased from
    the default).

    - Updated some of the calculation methods in the Segment
    Viewer, using the old methods it was possible to lose
    sizing accuracy when portions of the Feature VTS were
    blanked or set for SLIDESHOW mode.

    - Added "quick" keys to the segment editor. You can now
    press "B" to blank, "S" for slideshow, "F" to force
    no reencoding (keep video intact) and either "N" or
    "Space" to set back to normal.

    - Corrected an error in which the "Half-D1/Half Space"
    option was not working properly and output video may
    not have been resized.

    - Fixed a minor bug in which an encounter with an
    illegally formated IFO file format could repeat an
    error message several times.

    - Fixed a cosmetic error in which a "-" would be
    inserted in the DVD-RB form title every time it was
    activated.

    - Other minor bug fixes.
