This version (1.00…2) matches with the actual version available onto the Mac App Store.
Changes between the first 1.00 version and this new one:
• Adding a close button onto the main window. The button is now safer even during a conversion in progress.
•Better 'auto-detection' if you chose the preset: 'adapt for editing software'.
• MovieCam handles every stupid files with no more error alert (this app is designed for camcorders files, not for every web files ;-)).
• Correct a random bug when modifying settings onto the batch window (=the app is more reliable).
• Easier access to 'slow motion' feature -if available- whatever your currently selected preset.
Here is the final 1.00 version!
What does it do?
• Automatically convert to your editing software needs, ensuring that you have minimal loss during the conversion.
• Or unify different videos from your camcorder / camera, depending on your choice.
• Automatically remove the 'comb effects' if your editing software is not able to well manage them.
• Keep the 'comb effects' if you want them (and if your editing software knows well to manage them).
• Or let you convert a 'comb effects' video (i50 or i60) to a video 'without comb effects' but 'with too many images per second' (p50 or p60). This conversion remove 'comb effects' whitout losing quality!
• Or let you convert your video 'with too many images per second' to a 'comb effects' video, to edit it softly, while preserving your original video's fluidity.
In short, convert any video from camcorders to a file ideally prepared for your needs and your editing software needs.
What does it do more than the old 'HD module' from MovieConverter-Studio:
• Supports videos shooting at 'cinema frame rate' (aka "24" frames per second).
• Can output to ProRes formats (the one you choose between all various existing ProRes codecs).
• Can slow down your videos (if your camcorder shot more pictures than necessary, what do most of consumer-camcorders ;-)).
• Can re-wrap 'videos without comb effects' instead of taking the time to pre-convert it (functionality from Movie50p60p).
• Supports videos 'with too many frames per second', whether their 'comb effects' (i50 or i60) or not (p50 or p60).
Moviecam, best prepare your videos for editing, without having to be an expert in video technology ;-).
Here it is, MovieCam version 1.00RC (Release Candidate) is available. What does it mean? If you don't notice an error (it will be corrected), you have access to the final version ;-).
What is MovieCam compared to the "HD module" of the old version of MovieConverter?
This "new version" is not a real update:
…just a hack to allow its launch on MountainLion (Apple's new security features -setted in Mountain Lion- avoided the app to start).
So, now you can launch it on 10.8 too.
And what's new? Nothing (actually, I continued the developpement of this app, but I didn't find time enough to finalize it).
The application now handles "camcorders's interlaced videos, not wrapped in .MTS"
…simplier: it means that the app is now compliant with some SANYo more, and with TOSHIBA GIGASHOT.
Here is the new port of MovieConverter-Studio's old HD module (the presence of this module -in MC-S- prevented me to manage to upgrade the whole application). Now, the two parties are finally separated.
So, here's the new version (with more options, those that I could not manage to implement in the old module HD :-)).
For now it is only a "pre-release" (call it alpha or ßeta). It has not be checked properly, but it seems to work most of the time. So, it already may be usefull for you ;-).
(Bug example in this version: you convert a 50i to 25p …even if you asked a 50p output. This will be fixed in a future release)
