Just checking the site and discovered a new release to Sorenson Squeeze at version 4.5.3 which includes encoding alpha channels while scaling (I believe that you need to get the ON2 plug-in for this), click and pop noise reduction for mp3’s, and better noise reduction.
I just recently tried to install Sorenson 4.5 and found out that I had to upgrade it from 4.3 to 4.5. Frankly, I haven’t seen the need to upgrade just yet though it is affordable at $39 US. At the same time, I am stuck because I would also like to create Flash video with the On2 codec to use alpha channels. So a Squeeze user would need to add the On2 plugin with their software. I’m currently biding my time until CS3 comes out and get to play with it.
Another thing, Sorenson media also released a java plugin called “Sorenson Squish”. It is a means whereby users can upload and publish their videos in other formats into flvs for video sites. Since the Youtube explosion, there are now a ton of sites using Flash video.
I have recently did a Flash Video – Slide presentation with cue points by using a tool called “Captionate” (not to be confused with Adobe “Captivate”). Personally, this is the best way to edit cue points into an flv file. It’s because if you want to add or remove cuepoints, you have to re-render your flvs from Flash or Squeeze with the modified cue points.
