    • From now, the options for pause and volume are available from the first slide on which are positioned music tracks
    • Drag & drop is improved to allow movement "using mouse" of music tracks from one slide to another
  • Improved rendering
    • Adding "variable bitrate" mode for encoding which reduces quite dramatically the size of videos produced for projects containing mostly pictures
    • Adding a hundred new models of equipment (phones and tablets)
  • Improved quality of transitions
    • Nearly half of the LUMA transitions have been redone (a quarter of the total transitions) to reduce noise (inelegant pixels) on projects in HD

  • Generate thumbnails at 600×800 corresponding to rendered videos (very useful for differentiating videos when using Jukebox and MediaCenter application)
  • Generate .nfo file for XBMC (very useful for those who use XBMC because it allows the videos to have a poster and a sheet into XBMC)
  • Adding models (predefined elements used as the basis for creating thumbnails or slides)
  • Adding an export project function (saves the project and all the files used by the project in a subdirectory)
  • Support of ffmpeg 2.0 and 2.1

  • Supports project containing several thousand slides (instead of several hundred in previous versions)
and above all, numerous bug fixes.
