Postby Thomas Mrozek » Thu Mar 30, 2023 5:00 pm

Dear Customers,

please find Pandoras Box V8.7.0 ready to download.

This version gives you the ability to output NDI 5 streams. Output routing has been revised so that you can add virtual adapters to your physical adapters or even add them separately as long as your license gives you the output quantity options.

Further on we added some timeline editing improvements. To name a few there is now Container Grouping, Cue and Clip Locking and advanced Multiselection. As usual there is also a bunch of bugfixes included, please check the Changelog below for all details.

Known Issue:

You may get a “Medialooks” Watermark after 24h of runtime of non PB native playbacks like Mp4, H.265,…. A system restart may give you another 24h of use without a Watermark. If you need to use these file formats, please use Version 8.6.2 until we can provide an update or reencode these formats to PB native formats (while not having the medialooks issue or use external tools). Native PB file formats are working correctly in Version 8.7.

Sorry for inconveniences
