3ivx codec at 5.0.1

3ivx has updated its self-named MPEG-4 audio/video codec to v5.0.1, bringing with it several enhancements. Most important is a rearrangement of the internal architecture, reducing memory usage by 76 percent, and enhancing overall performance. MPEG-4v1 and v2 syntax should enable better device interoperability, and CPU controls allow faster-than-real-time encoding. 3ivx in fact promises results that are faster and higher-quality than QuickTime's encoder, and has implemented an MP4 Export component, which makes 3ivx an option in programs such as iMovie and Final Cut Pro. Output files are compatible with devices such as the iPhone and AppleTV. A trial codec is free for 30 days, but full versions range in cost from $7 for a basic decoder to $100 for maximum commercial applications.
