Hmm...

I wonder if it actually does anything or if they're just saying that to get people with fast computers to download the beta. :p

LOL, I searched for the term "directx" in the detailed list here:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../dd335033.aspx

and found this

"951698

MS08-033: Vulnerabilities in DirectX could allow remote code execution"

and this

"927544

FIX: You cannot create an AVI file that is larger than approximately 512 GB, and you cannot play back an AVI file that is larger than approximately 800 GB by using DirectX"


So much for DirectX improvements. Still I somehow know the fanboys are gonna scream OMG VistaSP2 my FPS skyrocketed!!111!

Ive been running beta builds of Sp2. Its alot faster, uses alot less memory than SP1 or Pre Sp1. Definitely worth the DL. They have implemented some of the things Windows 7 does. (nana2)

Updating to this one now actually...

You must've missed this one:

Shame about the AVI files though im really gutted i cant create a AVI file larger than 512 GB....I wonder how many CD's i would have to use to fit that on.

i once made AVI that was close to 400GB, once you work with uncompressed DV source you can hit that high ;)

you can't compress HDV source in realtime on most PCs, so you have to capture uncompressed and then later get it converted

Wanted to try it out, but the 64Bit link doesn't seem to be working.

[edit] I guess it was just temporarily down for 1 minute..
