All is well but shouldn't this be listed as 6.0.1 and not 6.1?

Works great! Just used this to render a Krita animation! Very simple and easy to use.

Superb project but 99% of users won't have a clue how to use it or know what a command line is! Pazera MP4 Converter is my recommended GUI for that group of folks. My quibble is Ffmeg can deinterlace, but there must be an easier way to ivtc an NTSC based single Bob file source. Anyway I will master it someday using decimate in my script.
For those wanting one which will work in XP, link below.
