Complete Version history / Release notes / Changelog / What's New for AviUtl

AviUtl 10/3/2019 ver 1.10
Updated build environment and adjusted accordingly.
The video cache was secured in shared memory.
The specification of the cache size was specified by the memory capacity.
Enabled to retry by adjusting cache size when memory allocation fails.
LARGEADDRESSAWARE is always enabled.
Some of the default system settings were changed.
Improved so that the shared memory cache can be used by plug-in external functions.

(Download the Extra pack and install it first and then replace the avitutl.exe with the new version 1.10 to get english menus)

AviUtl Extra Pack 1.14 Release Note

This release is a temporary fix for broken download of FFmpeg and iTune. This installer now gets all the files from a dedicated Dropbox. This is safer but also means update will be less frequent until I find an automated solution.

AviUtl Extra Pack 1.13 Release Note


Moved x264 and x265 download sources from 3rd party sites to dedicated dropbox server.

AviUtl Extra Pack 1.12 Release Note

A minor update to fix broken links. Notably the old x264 builds and 32bit x265 10bpp are no longer available.

AviUtl Extra Pack 1.11 Release Note

Since this version (1.11), I知 moving to an installer-based distribution format. This move has several reasons:

Easier to maintain
User can choose what to install
Bilingual (This installer can install both Japanese and English version!)
Automatic LargeAddressAware support to relieve memory stress
Reduce confusion on audio encoder setting and qaac dependency
Reduce confusion on 4K-video support
Hide components on machine with unsupported hardware to reduce error chance
Easier to update L-SMASH (Works) and encoder GUIs without making a new release

Differences from EP 1.10

VCEEnc for AMD machine is dropped. There has been no development activity on this plugin for more than a whole year.
You will need to review the paths for x264, x265 and FFmpeg in the encoder GUIs.
Apple Application Support will be installed automatically when choosen to install qaac audio encoder.
L-SMASH, L-SMASH Works and the encoder GUIs(Japanese version only) will be updated around once per month. Just re-run the installer.
A few new effects: 3d custom flare, trump card. Please visit 壮 AviUtl support thread for details and sample files
All license and readme files placed in a single folder

2015-02-05 by Maverick Tse

== Summary ==
This pack is mainly about plugin optimizations. All dependencies on ImageMagick have been removed! Some of the original features have been replaced by new plugins that utilize Intel IPP and Cilk. The new version of L-Smash Works file reader now provides MUCH better support for Variable-Frame-Rate video. Old WMV8 files should now have little problem on A/V-sync. Note that the Direct GIF Export lugin (DGE2)may have problem saving settings to INI. So ALWAYS check the settings at the first GIF encode after you launched AviUtl. DGE2 now implements ordered dither in the "Correct Way", with far less clipping and preserves a lot more details. In exchange, the encoded GIF is considerably larger.

You MUST set the FULL ABSOLUTE PATH to gifsicle.exe (included in ./3rdParty folder) for optimization to work!

AviUtl Extra Pack 1.4 Changelog

New SFX highlights:

Year 2014 coincide with the release of Extra Pack 1.4. Here are the details:


NeroAAC encoder binary has been removed from this distribution after discovering its license prohibit re-distribution.

Please choose 吐dk-aac(actually ffmpeg痴 libvo_aacenc) as audio encoder, or download NeroAAC Encoder from official site yourself (


>Denoiser: Wavelet(and setting helper), NL-Means Light (and for GPU), Ringing Canceller, Chroma denoiser

>Restoration: Delogo, ImasUncaption (hard-coded subtitle remover)

>Expanded file type support for Drag-and-Drop (Adv.Editing)

Minor Changes

>In L-Smash import plugin, changed AVS bit-depth to 16

>Removed x265-10bit binaries. (If anyone can get AviUtl working correctly with x265-10bit, please inform me.)

>Updated FFmpeg

>Rearranged video filter order due to expansion of plugins. Please revise the order yourself if you find something not working as expected.

>All components, except x265Gui, should now be displaying GUI in English

AviUtl ExtraPack 1.31 Changelog

This version mainly addressed a bug after English localization:

Playback cursor in Adv.Editing panel not in sync with the playback/preview window.

Other minor changes:

Added drag-and-drop support for AviSynth script (*.avs) for Advanced Editing.
Added more samples in the figure folder.
Bug Details:

In the AUL file, I have named a window as 撤review window, while in exedit.auf, I have translated the same (hard-coded) Japanese text into 撤layback window. Somehow the cursor in Adv.Editing panel requires these two text to be exactly the same (case sensitive) in order to work. So the bugfix is to change the corresponding text in the AUL.
