Keyframe MP Update

Version 1.2.1

A new version of Keyframe MP is now available for download.

This update brings with it several smaller, yet highly requested, features. The first of which allows the user to change the video playback speed, by either slowing it down or speeding it up. Options and hotkeys are available for incrementally changing the speed, common presets and setting custom values. Please note, audio is not currently available with this feature.

The second new feature allows for looping when frame stepping and mouse scrubbing. This is of particular benefit when working with cycles and can be enabled through the Playback menu.

Additionally, this update includes an option to disable endless mouse scrubbing and a number of minor bug fixes.
