- Performance improvements made to the video rendering process.
- Added a button in Settings to allow access to the chosen webcam manufacturer's installed settings utility.
- Bug fix: Video window can now be re-sized correctly in the Session Designer.
- Bug fix: Program now returns to the Main Menu when quitting an auto-start session.
This version includes newer Intel media files, which will provide performance improvements in the following areas:
IMPORTANT BUG FIXES...
- This version fixes a problem where video recordings could fail when the Mirror setting was in use.
- This version fixes a problem where video files were not always being saved when running a Video Question session.
- The video preview window is now hidden until the video starts recording. This helps to prevent the webcam video initialisation process being shown to the user.
- The video preview window is now turned on in between questions, during a Video Question session.
We've added independent font settings for the instructions shown on different session screens in the Session Designer.
We've added a new setting to: 'Show photo after capture'. When ticked this option will cause each photo taken to be shown to the user for 3 seconds before the program moves on.
We've added new independent settings to 'Collect user names', 'Collect user email addresses', both or neither.
We've added a new setting to specify the microphone's 'Audio input format'. This allows you to define the frequency, bit rate and channel values for audio being sampled by your selected microphone.
We've added new settings to specify the AVI audio output format: Hertz, Bits and Channels. When recording AVI video files, you can match these values with your chosen Audio input format (see above), and this will help to overcome possible lip sync issues within AVI files.
- We've improved the program memory usage during the recording session which will help with overall program performance.
- The program now allows setting the photo capture count to 10.
- Prevented a memory leak that was previously occurring if a Recording Session was started after using the Session Designer. In this situation, the program would repeat a cycle of gradually consuming memory and then periodically releasing it all. On some systems this cyclic memory recovery event could cause the program to freeze for a short time, leading to possible interruptions to any video recording that may have been happening at the time.
