Hydra 3: 3.0.13.4 - Use for Lossless J2k Playback (Hardware encoding will be disabled)
GPU Tesla Nvidia Driver: 398.75

Spycer Standalone will also need to be installed. Spycer 4.0.1.2 build28784 (Include in the download 6.7.0.3 installer package)

Known Issue: Windows RDP must be set to 32bit bit depth or the overlay will appear black

Fixed Issues:
6.7.0.4
Fixed issue with parallel video decoder, which could lead to incorrect image frame order or image artifacts. Affected was mainly XAVC.
Enabled non-HDR color configuration when finalizing to ProRes XQ. In previous CLIPSTER versions, only HDR color configurations were available.
Fixed wrong UUID used for IMF file naming. The TrackID was written instead of TrackFileID.

Improved vertical scrolling in the Bin when mouse wheel is used. The improvement
affects thumbnail-based view modes. Compared to previous versions it is more granular now.
Fixed issue with the SMPTE Phase 2 mode in the DCI Delivery Tool. Up until now, it was possible to select MPEG encoding.
DCI Extension Metadata
● Fix provided for DCI SMPTE 428-16 VersionNumber. A value of 0 was not written into the CPL.
● Disabled SMPTE Bv2.1 selection option. This feature is not available yet.
● Changed misleading statement in message box when loading a DCI project with
existing but incorrect Extension Metadata. The text in the message box is clearer now, the message “The custom metadata will not be written” has been added.


Modifications and Improvements
6.7.0.4
Improved performance when loading an IMP or CLIPSTER project file containing video essences with embedded Dolby Vision metadata.

Spycer Standalone will also need to be installed. Spycer 4.0.1.2 build28784 (Include in the download 6.7.0.3 installer package)

Known Issue: Windows RDP must be set to 32bit bit depth or the overlay will appear black

New Features:

- IMF File Naming
- IMF Validation with Photon (Requires Java 8 or Higher)

Fixed Issues:

- Active area is now auto adjusted on raster changes.
- CLIPSTER ignores incorrect active area metadata when adding clips to the Bin. A
notification message is displayed when such clips are being added. In software version
6.6 clips with incorrect active area could impede playout or rendering.
-Fixed an XAVC encode problem. In rare cases, XAVC files rendered with prior software
versions had small encoding artifacts.
- Fixed an audio distortion during ingests in SD rasters. This problem was introduced with software version 6.6.0.2.
- Essence descriptors in IMF CPLs are no longer repeated in case of using resources that share a common track file.
-Fixed scaling of images in pulldown workflows. In prior CLIPSTER 6 versions, these
scaling could introduce blur and/or artifacts.
- Fixed problem with loading of IMF CPLs into the timeline referencing more than 16 mono or 32 stereo channels.
- HLG format is now correctly written to XAVC MXF files. Rec2020 was set as transfer function in prior versions.
- OPLs are now referenced by the PKL and Assetmap when creating IMPs.

Notes:
Firmware Encode/Decode Two Firmware versions have been provided for the Hydra video board, which is responsible for JPEG2000 hardware encode/decode:
● A version with two encoders and two decoders (3.0.13.2). The version is installed on new systems by default. For existing customers this version is recommended.
● A version with four decoders and no encoder (3.0.13.4). Each version has different performance concerning J2K decode speed. For the time being, customers have to manually install the desired version,
if they want to switch between one of them. Note: In order for the Legacy mode in the DCI Delivery Tool to function properly the default version must be used!


Modifications:

'CPL only'  was always greyed out in all 6.2 distributions.'CPL only' is now selectable again in the Digital Cinema Delivery Tool, provided the DCI phase of the loaded DCP matches the setting under 
Config -> Defaults -> DCI -> DCI Phase. 

The 3d-LUT checkbox in the timeline does no longer change its status during finalize. 

IMF Subtitles CLIPSTER supports now the Timed Text Markup Language standard when integrating subtitles and captions into IMF delivery packages
This standard is also known as IMSC1 (Internet Media Subtitles and Captions 1.0) issued by the W3C organization. Subtitles are delivered as TTML files (XML).
Once integrated into an IMF composition, they can be wrapped into an individual MXF track file alongside the rest of the video and audio essences and/or they can be
rendered directly into the video. When a subtitle timeline element has been added to the timeline, it can be handled just as any other timeline element (e.g. moved, cut or trimmed)
and will already have the length as determined by the MXF/XML subtitle file. Once finished with the arrangement of your composition,
the actual integration of the subtitles into the IMP is done with the IMF Delivery Tool.
To allow CLIPSTER to include the subtitles, you have to first activate the Metadata output checkbox in the Video settings page, and then enable the corresponding option.
