AMD released version 1.4 of the AMF SDK back in January and I quickly got to work familiarizing myself with the changes and new sample tools.

The Encoder Plugin has finally reached 1.3.0!

Special thanks go out to my Patreon supporters:┬áKytos, nwgat.ninja, Markus, vektorDex, SneakyJoe, Kristian Kirkesaether (Sorry, I don’t know how you do the messed up ae), AJ, Jeremy Nieth, John Difool, Nico Thato and DaOrgest.
