This software uses the L.E.A.P.System, an Internet-based online user license validation system. Upon your purchase and installation, a user license validation process takes place during the first launch. This validation must be renewed periodically and requires an environment that provides access to the Internet. There is no guarantee the license validation can occur without any issue in a secured or restricted Internet environment such as those found in schools or corporate intranets.

H.264/AVC Advanced Settings
Output for streaming use For streaming playback, places the stream information in the file header instead of the trailer. Allows the player to start playback while still downloading the data.
Data Container for Apple Portable Devices Possibility to set the Baseline Low-Complexity profile flag in the file header data. This data may be required by some of the Apple portable devices.
Video Format Component / PAL / NTSC / SECAM / MAC / Unspecified
Output in 192 byte packets Allows setting the packet size to 192 bytes when outputting in MPEG-2 Transport Stream.
Encode chapter marker as I frame Encodes as an I frame at chapter marker positions specified in Adobe Premiere Pro.
(Only for the x264 encoder)
Output chapter marker list file Possibility to output flagged sequence markers specified in Adobe Premiere Pro as a timestamp list file. The list file can be used as specific scenes to edit in some software or devices.
Advanced Encoder Options Contains the advanced settings for the H.264/AVC stream format. (Only for the x264 encoder)
Option to adjust stream structure for standards Possibility to adjust the video stream to be compliant with Blu-ray Disc and AVCHD standards.
* It may not be possible to meet the standard even if this option is enabled. It is necessary to set other parameters to be compatible with the standard. Generally, we recommend using the Blu-ray or AVCHD preset.
