Some trimmed wav files could involved "Replacement Error" in the final Report and a final "Critical Error" state
Critical Error when a Project Shortcut was present in the processed project
Very big projects could make the panel restart while consolidating due to memory issues. Memory used by PlumePack has been optimized and reduced for that

New Trim Features:
New default behavior: Multiple output parts for one file. Better optimization of how clips are trimmed when coming from the same source. Really useful for interviews, conferences, long continuous shootings etc.!
New option : "Force One Output File per Input File": Gives access to old trim behavior, only one trimmed file is created for each media based on min/max use along the project.
New option : "One Output File for Each Timeline Clip" for a specific kind of workflow, which needs that every timeline clip comes from a unique media source (even if duplicated)
Support clips with Speed Changed, Speed Reversed.
Support clips with Footage Interpreted
Support Subclips without hard boundaries
H264 is no more a "Beta Codec", and so doesn't need anymore the "Trim New Codecs in Beta" option for being trimmed.
