Version history / Release notes / Changelog


Changes from 2020.07 to 2020.09 (09-21-2020)
Switched to Windows Media Foundation to read h264 files, AVI files, WMV files, etc. This is more robust that QuickTime, and it can read more files than the DirectShow or AVIFile APIs. Since these decoders are also 64-bit, reading is much faster too.
Retired the old DirectShow and AVIFile importers.
You can now directly compress video and wave files with 5.1 or 7.1 audio tracks - instead of making multiple audio stem files, you can directly compress multi-channel files right into Bink files. Both the Bink compressor and mixer support this.
The Bink converter can open the output file using the Windows file association.
Do our best to play multichannel audio on stereo output systems in a reasonable way.
Fixed a bug when making a list file with thousands of files selected at once.
Correctly parse a series of image files when the numbered sequence doesn't have leading zeros (file1 to file1000, for example).
Rewrote much of TinyEXR and added threading - reading a sequence of EXR files is almost 8x faster.
Check for re-entrancy in the plugin shim to watch for complicated Unity usage mistakes.
Fix a bug where the plugin shim might not draw the final frame of a non-looping texture.
Fixed a bug when decoding a 32-bit QuickTime file that has a non-divisible by 4 width.
Fixed some UE4 build issues for XboxOne when *not* using the GDK.
Fixed a bug in the PS4 GPU-assisted path that was triggered by new shader compiler versions.
Fixed a bug in the Scarlett GPU-assisted path.
Worked around a bug in the Durango GDK shader compiler on the GPU-assisted path.
Dynamically link to waveout, since it is so rarely used now-a-days.
Made the buffer logic flag IO-errors as late as possible, so you get the error on the frame that can't be decoded, instead of when the pre-buffering thread encountered it. This lets you decode or convert as much as possible of corrupted Bink files.

All features


Bink videos look amazing! Bink can scale its data rate from 1200 kps for 1280x720p videos down to 75 kps for Nintendo DS videos. Bink will always make the best possible video for your data rate.
Bink's SDK is simple and powerful. Your game is always in control - there are no callbacks or other difficult-to-debug constructs. Using Bink is like using a codec that you wrote yourself.
Bink is completely self-contained - it needs no special system software, it needs no other audio codec, it needs no other surrounding architecture. Just one small library and you are good to go - there are no external installation or dependencies.
Bink is super, super fast. In some cases, up to 10 times faster than other modern codecs. It's fast enough to use for in-game videos, as well as cut-scene videos.
Bink uses as little memory as possible. In some cases, up to 16 MB less than other codecs. You don't have to worry about a simple video codec hogging all your memory.
Bink runs on every platform. You can use the same API and data files on 14 different platforms.
Bink runs on most game engine middleware natively. Epic supplies pre-written Bink support for the Unreal Engine, for example.
Bink has a VBR psycho-acoustic based audio codec capable up to 15:1 compression built-in. You don't need to license another codec for your audio.
Bink can play many audio tracks at once - this allows the playback of 5.1 and 7.1 sound tracks (on supported platforms) as well as optional language tracks where you can turn on and off a language based on the system setting.
Bink runs on every game platform and is customized to take advantage of each one. It uses SPUs on PS3, VMX on Xbox360, SSE 2 on x86, massive assembly optimizations on Nintendo DS, etc.
Bink includes sound support for every platform it supports. We have 16 different modules for sound playback on the various platforms.
Bink is super robust. The fact that it ships in so many games makes it better and better - it just doesn't crash. Bink can also handle bad input data - it just keeps chugging along until the input data gets better again.

I tried to convert a 701 MB .MOV file which had a 5 minute playtime to .avi and got a humongous 4 GB .avi file. I tried twice with different output resolutions, same thing. Either it doesn't work right or it's too complicated for me to understand.

Review by JohnnyBob on Jul 4, 2012 Version: 199r OS: WinXP Ease of use: 1/10 Functionality: 1/10 Value for money: 1/10 Overall: 1/10




this tool is amazing. after 2 days of trying to make TMPGEnc, WinAvi, AVS, Magic Video Converter and some other tools produce a simple .mov to .avi compilation I.ve found this tool superior to all of the above ones. TMPGEnc crushes with the popular "invalid sample format error" that seems to be quite a common problem without universal solution. The rest of the bunch either crushed or produced movie with no sound.
RAD said there's something muddy in the source's audio but magically crunched the video with no problem. It just works.

My new digital camera takes short movie clips. Minolta Dimage Z3. I needed a simple tool to convert QuickTime *.mov files into *.avi files. This was so that I could edit them in Pure Motion's Edit Studio. This tool was great to use - just click the convert button - don't fiddle with the settings and done.

The only complication was having to reinstall QuickTime with ALL it's extra utilities using the 'custom' settings!

I needed something quick and something that I was not going to need 2 hours to learn how to use. Tried a couple of other converters until I came accross this one. Wow, really easy and got the job done done. I was able to tweak a few setting and get the exact output I was hoping for.
