Time Stamping Your Video Files



What's New in Version 7 of DVMP Pro

Here's a list of some of the main features and changes from the old version 6 to the new version 7:

  • Faster and smaller Time stamped files. There is now a set of new and improved Output file types, including a new best recommendation: Hardware accelerated MP4 file with AVC/H.264 encoded video. Time stamping is faster on most Intel based computers. Time stamped files are smaller (easier to send to clients and colleagues), and more compatible with other video software.
  • Time stamp just a small section of your large video file. If you only need a few minutes or seconds of time-stamped video from your lengthy video file, you don't have to wait for the whole file to be stamped - just select the start and end video frames and only that section will be stamped. This is a real time saver!
  • Burn in Time stamp and Burn in Metadata tools have been completely re-written for greater stability.
  • New 64 bit version. DVMP Pro 7 is now available as 64 bit and 32 bit versions for 64 and 32 bit editions of Windows. The new 64 bit version benefits from the extra memory available to 64 bit software in the 64 bit editions of Windows.
  • 4K video (Ultra HD, 3840 x 2160) is now supported in the 64 bit version of DVMP Pro. HEVC encoded video is supported provided you have the popular third-party “LAV Filters” installed on your PC.
  • Improved location and extraction of date, time and other metadata from camera-original video files.
  • Support for GoPro Hero 5 Black and GoPro Hero 6 Black models' GPS data. You can now view and export the GPS information, and view the camera's route in the interactive Display Map tool.
  • Better extraction of date and time information from video files of Canon DSLR, Samsung and Sanyo cameras.
  • Improved support for Sony's "XAVC S" format, now including GPS data display and mapping.
  • Improved support for Portrait Oriented Video that is created by some smartphones.
  • Improved precision of GPS data in export tools and Display Map.
  • New improved Help system.
  • ... and lots more minor tweaks and improvements.

Changes from version 7.0 to 7.5.5:

  • New near-lossless output types for Burn-in/Time stamping that use Cineform video encoding/compression in an MP4 or AVI file. Cineform has been used for many years in professional video production due to its extremely high image quality, incredibly fast processing, and relatively small files (compared to other lossless file formats). This makes it ideal if you intend to import your time-stamped files into other software for further editing, processing or transcoding.
  • New Display time in 12 hour am/pm format option. Previously DVMP Pro always displayed and time-stamped the time in 24 hour (military) format unless you used the special custom formatting tags. But now you can simply tick this new option and the time will be in 12 hour format with an "AM" or "PM" suffix.
  • New tool Burn-in New Time Stamp available on the Tools menu. If your camera stored an incorrect time while recording (or didn't store a time at all) then you can now provide a completely new date and time for time-stamping. You choose the year, month, day, hour, minute and second to be stamped.
  • New upper and lower case feature for the time-stamping Rec date and Rec time custom formatting tags. In most languages day and month names are in lower case with an initial capital, but you can use this new feature to force day and month names and AM/PM text to be all upper or lower case.
  • Burn-in Time Stamp tool now lets you burn-in Custom Text and Logo Image.
  • Fixed a issue where some Windows and third-party AVI Video Compressors could not be selected in the 64 bit version of DVMP Pro. This is actually a bug in 64 bit editions of Windows, but we have worked around it.
  • Improved support for Intel decoders, and Intel libraries updated.
  • Support added for MagicYUV, a new high-efficiency lossless third-party AVI Video Compressor.
  • Numerous minor tweaks and bug fixes.

DVMP Pro 7 is supported on Windows 10, 8 and 7. Earlier versions of Windows are not supported.
