MovieStacker 2.1.0 is out

I think that the most important change in this new version is the AviSynth 2.5 support. Now every MovieStacker user that was still using the old AVS2.0 can now upgrade to AVS2.5x. Preview function is working. You can choose to preview with the internal frame render, or choose an external application. Compare function is also working. By default it will compare the current script and the source material, but you can choose to compare any 2 scripts you want. Added support for some filters, remove some other.

It’s recommended to completely uninstall the previous version before installing this new one. The new installation routine will detect the old version (if you use the old installer) and ask to uninstall it automatically. If you want to keep both versions you can install into a different directory.

Software on hold. Announcement will be made when available.

Release notes:
Code:

- MovieStacker now support AviSynth 2.5

- "Preview" function is working. You can choose to preview with the internal
  frame render, or choose an external application.

@ all
Thank you for the compliments!
I hope that you truly like it, and I hope it will be useful... at least to some of you.

@ Dialhot
Hey man, I'm glad you noticed the installer!
I spent quite some time on it to make it work the way I wanted.

Welcome. Unfortunately it's not being distributed right now because of licensing issues.

Just wanted to be sure
But as I said, MovieStacker is on hold for the moment. Please check here (daily), as I'm sure muaddib will surprise us very soon
