When will HEVC H.265 codecs will be supported by VRD? I believe this is what version 6 will include. When will version 6 be released?

v6 is probably 6+ months off. We're still focused on adding functionality to v5 and improving our Pro product. For right now there isn't a lot of call for H.265 so it's not a top priority for us. But it will be one of the main features of v6 when it's eventually released.

Goodie! looking forward to playing with that.

But I won't really be using H265 till I can just plug a Flash stick with my British comedies
into my "Stair Stepping" tv in the back and it all just works.
(probably not this year or next or next)

Hmm, just to mention... FFmpeg 64bit H265 is definitely faster-fps then FFmpeg 32 bit
if there is any way you can use the 64bit version of FFmpeg.
32 bit 3.88fps
64 bit 5.54fps approx 42% faster.

We don't actually use ffmpeg, we use the libs from ffmpeg directly. And we can't use 64bit libs in VRD because VRD is a 32bit app.

I decided handbrake is the easiest option for h.265 right now.

mpg2 -> VideoRedo -> mpg2 fast frame copy
mpg2 -> Handbrake -> h.265

It's been roughly a year since you posted the above. Do you have an updated timetable on the release of v6 and h.265 support? Thanks!

From what I've read here it is basically "when it is done".

EDIT....
Latest info is still greater then 6 months. So sometime in 2018.

Just a quick note to let you know that others are also interested in upgrading to a ver that includes support for x25/HEVC.

By the way, VideoReDo's arch-rival, TPMGEnc Smart Renderer, has released a new version which supports h.265.

Today, for the first time, I had a 265 file with MP3 audio that I needed to chop up into smaller pieces. I had forgotten that VideoReDo, VRD, doesn't handle 265 and MP3, and I put the file in there and sliced off my first piece.

And got the Major Recode Required message, of course.

I checked out this thread plus http://www.videoredo.net/msgBoard/showthread.php?36289-Getting-quot-Mpeg-Layer-1-Not-Supported-quot-messages-with-Mpeg-Layer-3-recordings-Huh and noted that an h.265/MP3 VRD upgrade will now happen some time in 2018. Ouch! (I'm so spoiled...)

In this particular case, it turns out that the free software XMedia Recode will slice off pieces of an h.265/MP3 file without transcoding/re-processing/re-coding, so I was able to get the job done that way. But it is a cumbersome process to plug in the in-times and out-times in XMR (no trim function, for one thing, and you can scrub frame-by-frame only in the forward direction, not the reverse direction), so life will be much better when I can do this in VideoReDo. So my need for 265/MP3 is definitely getting stronger now. Smart Renderer is $70. I'm hoping I won't bump into a problem where XMR refuses to give me a frame-accurate slice (that's happened to me with XMR in the past, although I did not have problems with this file); if that starts to happen to me again, I will have to cough up the $70. And I don't even know if Smart Renderer can handle 264 and/or 265 files with mp3! Hopefully your VRD upgrade next year will enable both!

So at this point, it's a race against time between the point when I can't get frame-accurate results with XMR and the time when 265/mp3 is available in VRD. Here's hoping VRD wins the race!!!!

It's now June of 2018 - will v6 (even a beta version) be available soon?

We REALLY need hevc/x265 support without recoding!

We're working on it still. DanR expects to invite a few people to a private beta within the next couple weeks. We still have no offical release date though.

Hello, I am also interested in that HEVC format. In addition, I've got a handycam which records 4k in XAVC S format (Sony AX53). Still H264 I think. Is that supported in v5 or will it be in v6? I'm using v4 right now and am not sure if I should upgrade, but am also not sure what other options there are.
Please tell me if this is or will be supported anytime soon :)
Thanks

That should work in v5. We support 4K H.264 in v5. You should download the trial first just to be sure though. But I'm 95% sure it'll work based on the specs I found online.

Since March 2017 terrestial TV is broadcasted in Germany HEVC coded. So Videoredo cannot be used any longer to cut recorded streams. An alternative is the shareware TS Doctor, which works very well, but does not allow accurate frame cutting. It would, therefore, be highly appreciated if a Videoredo version allowing editing of HEVC videos would be available asap.

Getting really close to having it done. All that's left for the HEVC is to fix some smart editing issues and then we will post the beta.

Any chance of a V6 proposed features list? IE what are the goals for the new version? I see HEVC above, what about AC3 encoding?

Testing the last set of new features. Once we are sure they are working will post the whole list, as I don't want to commit to something and then pull it out of the product. AC3 encoding is included.

No. Obviously just someone who's upset that we haven't released it yet. It's still very much in the works.
