- Import/export of cue points in Adobe FLVCoreCuePoints XML format (introduced recently by Adobe Soundbooth pulic beta) is now supported.
- When saving a file Captionate now uses much less memory. Earlier versions required additional memory at least the size of the FLV when saving. This makes saving huge FLV files easier.
- While this is not something new with this version, it's the recent big news, which made using Captionate very easy with Flash 8 FLVPlayback component, it's worth another mention here: Michael Jordan's FLVPlayback skins that support Captionate were made available by Adobe, MXP is available for download at http://blogs.adobe.com/accessibility/2006/10/captionskins.html
- Minor bug fixes.
- If the audio codec used in the open FLV is MP3, Captionate now has an option of viewing sound data (approximate sound amplitude/volume, after some processing with FFMPEG) and video key frames on the timeline, with View | Preview Audio Graph on Timeline command.
- FLV Information Dialog, General Tab now has a button that invokes the system file properties dialog.
- There is now a new page in Preferences Dialog for XML export. You can now select the time format that will be used when exporting an XML. This also means that when you create your XML files, you may use any of the available formats.
- New File | Export Special menu has 3 commands:
- Video Only FLV... (saves a FLV file that consists of only video tags of the open FLV file).
- Audio Only FLV... (saves a FLV file that consists of only audio tags of the open FLV file).
- Audio as MP3... (if the audio codec used is MP3, saves the audio of the current FLV file as an MP3 file).
- In the File | Export menu, Captionate XML... command moved over Data Only FLV... command.
- Data entry fields of Captionate UI now supports ~65000 characters (bytes) (FLV data uses UTF8 encoding, with some languages each character may take 3 bytes, which will effectively decrease the character count to ~21000.). [Note that this data size limitation is not inherent to the FLV format. UI of the older versions of Captionate supported only a fraction of the current figure with no problem reports, so at this time, we find the current limit sufficient].
- Several bug fixes.
- Revised according to recently released SWF/FLV specs.
- Some bug fixes and internal enhancements.
- New Metadata tab in FLV Information Dialog. Metadata that will be injected can now be viewed. 'keyframes' object (which has arrays for filepositions and timestamps of all keyframes) and 'custommetadata' object (which can have any number of 'name:value' parameters that can be entered by the user) are supported. There is also an option for not including 'event' type cue points in the onMetadata event.
- Caption data can now be converted to Cue Point data type. This may come handy if a 3rd party component you are using only supports cue points.
- Simple batch processing support added.
- External export libraries supported. These libraries can export Captionate data to other formats. Available export libraries can be found and downloaded at http://www.captionate.com.
- Flash 8 Cue Points are supported as a new data type.
- New Flash 8 video codec On2 VP6 is supported, new values (as Flash 8 Video Encoder) are added to onMetaData event.
- New View|Set Display Font... command lets you choose the font that will be used for all text except the interface, easily.
- Check Version command added to the Help menu.
- A bug with exporting markers to XML is fixed.
