Released in January 2000 under the GPL

libFAME (September 2000)
Reviewed architecture of FAME and focused on video encoding
Wrote both a floating point and MMX implementation of basic functions for portability
Started engineering project on 'MPEG-4 encoding with shape support' in March 2001
Added motion estimation (fourstep)
Added MPEG-4 bitstream syntax
Added intra shape coding
Much better performance
