Version history / Release notes / Changelog

Updated to v9.1.0.0

VTM introduces great new feature - animated video thumbnail sheets!
Previously, you have been able to produce animated thumbnail sheets using WebM and APNG formats.

new: VTM introduces the third animation format - WebP.
WebP format is best for Home usage (it has VTX capabilities, small filesize, the quality is great, up to 10 seconds of animation). It is fully supported by SUU Design software.

WebP demonstration
Please find the difference between animation formats in the table below:
new: WebM/APNG/WebP selector is added to Environment window. More info in tooltip pop-up windows.

changed: Audio/Video information module is updated.
changed: Few cosmetic changes.
fixed: Rare Ultimate engine crashes are fixed.
fixed: VTM did not allow to select animation duration greater than 5 seconds for WebM animation format.
fixed: VTM is used by Videonizer's "Generate and add Screenslists" feature. That feature used to stop responding after proccesing certain amount of files in a batch.
----- Changes in Pictures Thumbnails Viewer -----
new: Support for WebP animations is added.
new: "Associate .WEBP extension with this program" button is added to "Preferences..." window.

special note: If you use Pictures Thumbnails Maker, you may want to install its latest version too, because PTM uses its own instance of Pictures Thumbnails Viewer.

If one knows certain tricks one can enter most any file type. Yet before i use this again i have to see if an Adaware Trojan report is a false positive. Was hoping to add an attachment/capture of the report but i see there is no attachments within comments.


NAME: VirTool.Win32.Obfuscator.hg!b1 (v)


DESCRIPTION: Trojan...malicious....harmful functionality or behavior.

TRACES: C:\Documents and Settings\(removed my folder name here)\Local Settings\Temp\Temporary Directory 1 for\VideoThumbnailsMaker_setup.exe

Now i installed the previous version and was not showing a Trojan. Then after a windows security update the previous version & 5001 5 times presented this Quarantined status.

If its a false positive, please remove the negative portion of this comment and just leave 1 of 3 ways to use many video types in this software. One is to change 4 types of video extensions to ".avi"(DON'T CHANGE CONTAINER JUST RENAME EXT), then it accepts those 4 types of video types, later on 2 other clues as to using this software.

Ease of use 7 of 10 Functionality 7 of 10 Value for money 9 of 10 Overall score 8 of 10

Easy and intuitive to use. Worked almost perfectly for me, batch-converting hundreds of mp4/avi/wmv files to thumbs.

A very small number of MP4 files in that batch however would cause the program to choke (with the progress bar not moving for 10-15 minutes) and then not respond to a Stop click, requiring Task Manager to kill the process.

VTM is excellent for me!

Ease of use - 9/10 (some options are not clear for the first-time-user)
Functionality - 10/10
Value for money - 10/10
Overall score - 10/10

Nymphomaniac, Thedanny,
VTM is not supplied with its own codecs. It uses your codecs.
If you have any problems with mkv h.264 - read FAQ in (a link can be found in the top right corner of the application). Just follow the instructions.

VTM requires .NET 2.0 Framework (3.5/4.0 does not include 2.0).
