From my perspective, incorporating x.264 into the program is a good move; it’s the go to H.264 codec for most compressionists, and I’m sure having to pay extra stuck in the craw of many buyers. At $594, it also brings the base version of Episode to closer parity with the base version of Sorenson Squeeze ($549).
