Handbrake raggiunge la versione 1.0 dopo 13 anni di sviluppo. Video editor potente e professionale

Il convertitore video gratuito Handbrake per Windows arriva in versione stabile 1.0

Ci sono voluti ben 13 anni di sviluppo e centinaia di versioni Beta intermedie affinché Handbrake raggiunga la versione 1.0 stabile. Infatti il miglior convertitore per video gratuito si aggiorna alla prima versione stabile da oltre 10 anni. Dunque finalmente avremo la prima versione stabile di Handbrake che secondo me è il miglior convertitore di video in circolazione che è disponibile per Windows, Linux e MAC.

handbrake 1.0.0

Ovviamente le novità sono tante ad iniziare dai numerosi preset e template inseriti di base con cui convertire tanti video con le impostazioni già pronte facilitato il lavoro di conversione. Sono poi decine le regolazioni da fare sui video come convertire gli MKV in AVI, DVD in AVI e molto altro. E’ stato aggiunto il supporto all’encoder Intel QuickSync H.265/HEVC (processori Skylake e Kaby Lake), la possibilità di mettere in pausa la conversione ed anche un notevole miglioramento delle prestazioni.
