8K Encoding Demo

You can download a demo of the PixelTools MPEGRepairHD set up to encode at 4K frame size from our web site (  Just download and unzip the file and click on the RunDemo.bat file.  The demo launches MPEGRepairHD and encodes a single 4096 x 1714 image into a 30 second MPEG stream.  Following the encoding, you can launch MpegRep.exe from the demo folder and depress the Decode | Run button to display the decoded 30 second file you just created.  The demo uses only one frame to save download space. You can use your frames as well in this demo.
