This appears to be a student project (only students choose JAVA in 2018). The GUI system is simple and working, but you'll want to use the shell features as the GUI misses many things. But if you use the shell, then odds are you're only using this for the distributed features. The distributed method seems to be a simple file chuncker.
The dependencies for this are incredibly vast. Considering how the distributed method appears to work, I'm passing and writing my own chunker/net code in C. However, I don't need any of the AviSynth features, so that is something to consider if you need that.

Don't listen to those complaining about the software. If one has a a system in good working order and has all the required pre-requisites installed before running it then the app works no problem. The encode quality is superb and if you understand Avisynth you can even add your own tweaks. What's even more awesome is its distributed encoding feature which allows to spread the encoding load up to 16 systems or if your rig is powerful enough you can enable additional cores on just your local machine to speed up encoding. Finally, I tested it with UHD and doing a conversion from HDR to SDR which takes much longer to encode but the results didn't disappoint.
At first I too experienced a few issues specific to distributed encoding but they were linked to my setup and since then have resolved them. I would encourage troubleshoot if experiencing issues rather than bashing the software which probably is not the source of the problem.
