Post The readme file is good to read...3.0.12
New and repaired in this version 3.0.12

Version 3.0.12

revision 4688 (RC 3783):
installers:
Hippov3 3.0.12 rev 4688
--------------------------
-----------------------
IMPORTANT !!
-----------------------

Hippotizer Version 3.0.12 uses a completely different file format for it's media and for it's timelines, as such it is important to note that when you upgrade to version 3.0.12 all your media will be renamed, this will be done automatically so you will not see any difference from the outside, but this does mean that you WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GO BACK TO VERSION 3.0.11 !

If you are unsure, make a backup of c:\hippotizerv3 and d:\v3media so that you can go back if necessary, and simply delete these backups once you have a working 3.0.12 system.



-----------------------
Known issues:
-----------------------


Output configuration:
- Pan MOde resolution Bug: sometimes not all Pan mode resolutions are available and when using the Control centre Hippo goes into clone mode instead of Pan mode.
Work around: USe Catalyst Control Centre and go manuallt to horizontal pan mode and then to clone mode and then back to default extended mode. After this sequence all resolutions should be available.
PLease note: Going into pan mode is a 2 stage process. FIrst you need to change the graphics mode and then select the output resolutions. Currently there is not much user feedback.

Express:
- some media files don't encode while in fullscreen mode. Works fine in windowed mode.
