Changes by Alan Canon

  • Added two GUI items to the MJPEG Export page. One allows the override of the aspect ratio when the mpeg file is generated.

This means that the DVD authoring or MPEG viewing can commence unattended immediately following the completion of export, if desired. The script is executed using the name of the dvdauthor file as the sole command-line argument.
