Release notes for MovieRecorder only

We don't provide a "Intel" version anymore as we now support most codecs that were supported previously. Only the DV codecs will not be ported as the third-party library used will not be ported to Silicon.
  • AVID DNx: Added native support for DNxHD and DNxHR with Apple Silicon computers. You don't have to start the application with Rosetta anymore. This should bring improved performances on M1 and M2 computers when running natively
  • Scheduled Recordings: Added a webpage to view and edit the scheduled recordings. The page can be viewed at this url (change the IP address if not on the same computer - and make sure to enable "Remote Control" in the General preferences of MovieRecorder):
  • Actions: Changed the name of the AppleScript menus to reflect more what is happening (instead of before start, it now says on start as the AppleScript is triggered when the recording starts/ends)
  • Actions: The 'Action on error' popup menu in "Preferences > General" is now properly saved
  • Metadata: Issues when importing metadata from another computer
  • Multi-Destinations: When using multiple destinations one one source using H264 or HEVC we did not reuse the encoder, even if AVPreset was the same, and thus reencoded multiple times.
