version 3.09 (2015-06-15) :

Mac App Store version - MAJOR BUGFIX!
…Due a concern with Apple's security features/signatures, most of "editing output formats" failed. Fixed, with a valid signature!!!
Notice: This bug occurred a long time ago (since the first version 3)! It "only" affects 2 of the 4 different versions of this app. Sometimes we miss a simple bug like this one (an "simple packaging error" but with huge consequences). So, when you encounter a bug, please inform us about it, to correct it rapidly: app menu > "Report a bug…".
Thanks and good videos.
PS: This version has been submitted to Apple on june 13th. It will not be available until Apple releases it (usually it takes a full week).

version 3 (2015-01-23) :

Brand New Version 3:
▶ New "easy mode" for beginners: Video is very technical domain, but you don't have to be an expert about video or specifications, to obtain a good result.
1 - Load your file
2 - Choose an output format
3 - Start conversion
…That's all, everything is automated, you will obtain a quality video, compliant with the device/format you selected !
▶ New outputs for non-Apple devices: from mobile to your game hub, your connected TV, etc.
▶ Experts users: adding 2 new "special effects"

▶ Various bugfixes (e.g.: with mpeg2, with "iPad" output)
▶ A lot of internal improvements
…More than 200 changes since the previous version.


version 2.51 (2014-09-22) :


Don't worry, no regression, the app is still compatible with your system and hardware:


version 2.15 (2014-01-15) :

New features:
Encoding module:
▶ New preset reserved for playback onto multimedia hard disc: a preset "Standard Definition videos that occupy less disk space than the DVD format but with the same quality " ;-)
▶ Handle "interlaced VC1" now (but approximately) (1 of the 3 video formats used in BluRay discs).
DVD-Video module:
▶ You do not want a menu? You want a disc that directly starts to play? …Now, you can make a DVD without menu if you had only one video in your Disc (or if you grouped all videos in one, with the "chain" button ;-)).
▶ DVD subtitles: Customize the color used for subtitles (select it in preferences panel).
+ various bugfixes.


version 2.14 (2013-12-07) :

Most of changes in this version are related to the Mac App Store features, except:
▶ The conversion of some files with "highly detailed colors" (e.g.: ProRes files) could fail depending on the chosen output. Corrected.
▶ Sanitize and cleanup some codes: the application is more reliable.

Mac App Store specific bug fixes: mostly related to every sandboxed apps (the sandbox is a safety feature introduced by Apple in Lion 10.7).
Sandbox prevents to use your private QuickTime codecs (plug-ins to expand QuickTime abilities)*.
So, depending on your private plugins (e.g.: the Perian codec), some features could previously fail.
▶ encoding module: fix preview.
▶ encoding module: fix check for "comb effects" files.
▶ encoding module: fix "editing outputs" (for iMovie or FCPX).
▶ encoding module: fix enable of "QuickTime decoder", if the decoder seems available, but will not be compatible in practice.
▶ Now MovieConverter warns you at launch about your potential concerns.
*For info, the technical explanation:
If the user has Perian in his user folder, the sandbox feature prevents Perian to load itself…
BUT Perian is registered as the main decoder, so its decoding fails: because Perian is not allowed to be loaded :-(
DVD-VIDEO module:
▶ Only the first 6 buttons/movies could be displayed in each menu, instead of theorically 9. Corrected (this bug was not related to sandbox feature, but to another Mac App Store feature).
▶ Disc burning: the burning could fail with some users. This random bug is corrected too.
Good videos :-)


version 2.13 (2013-11-19) :

▶ DVD-VIDEO module: allows to extract a menu background from your videos (this feature was broken in a previous version).
▶ Encoding module: DV output correction with raw DV: the audio part was not integrated with the video part, so you get two separate files, which is not practical (Notice: raw DV is only produced for the iMovieHD software, if you used a different video editing software, you never encountered have this concern ;-))
▶ ProRes codecs: outputs with your favorite ProRes codec (from 4x4 to Lt) are now well managed (previously, the regular ProRes codec was always used).
▶ Various minor bugfixes (localizations, optimizations, etc).


version 2.12 (2013-11-08) :

Mac OS 10.9 compatibility (minor changes).
Localizations failed with a non-english (or french) user's language. Corrected!


version 2.111 (2013-10-10) :

Minor bugfix: the app refused to start (with an alert) if you previously installed a MovieConverter's beta version. Corrected.

Add a new preset: "Tablet" (for iPad 1, Samsung Galaxy Tab, etc).
The bugs hunting:


version 2.1 (2013-05-28) :

New feature : the "Subtitle" module
1st part: Add subtitles for DVD purpose
✔ Most of text subtitles format are accepted: .srt, .ssa, .ass, from DVD Studio Pro format (.stl), from YouTube's time text subtitles (mpeg4-layer17) …and from images (.png).
✔ You can preview subtitles contents before adding them to your video (to avoid a bad characters display).
✔ You can re-synch subtitles to your video (when they begin and their playback speed).
…This implementation is not perfect (no progress bar yet when adding subtitles) but works :-)
Subtitles related improvements:

✔ More compatible with 'approximate files from an external encoder' (e.g.: if your video contained valid subtitles, they will be preserved during the file correction).
✔ Now takes care of all your customized menu's titles (some were previously ignored).
✔ The 'chapters' feature (automatic or computed from your file infos) is more robust.

Others improvements:
✔ handle some buggy files more (e.g.: files with multiples aspect informations)
✔ correct a uncommon failure (…with an NTSC video file with 5 duplicate frames every second, and converted to NTSC cinema mode!)
✔ correct some 'standard NTSC' bad behaviors (so most for american or japanese people).
Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard (intel or PPC):
✔ the app was badly displayed at launch time (corrected).
✔ The DVD-VIDEO module does not fail anymore while generating menus.

This version should be the last one before the official version 2 release (the subtitle part was 1 of the '2 missing feature that already existed in the old version'). PS: naturally, this new subtitle module is far better than the previous one ;-)
So,theorically, this is the last "ßeta version". Enjoy :-)


version 2.03 (2013-03-08) :

✔ Optimizations (next): The step "normalization of level of audio" is now speeder.
✔ Correction: some audio could produce some metallic sound. So, limit distorsion …while preserving the synchronisation with the video ;-)
✔ Correction: Your customized bitrate for h264 encoding, could not be used during encoding. In a very rare case, but very unpleasant too ;-).
✔ …and a lot a minor bugfixes/improvements.
+ some corrections specific for Mac OS 10.5 "Leopard".
Good videos.


version 2.02 (2013-02-18) :

Speed - Optimizations:
✔ The h264 encoding part is from 2 to 3 times faster (or "less slower" if you prefer ;-)).
✔ The audio's conversion of standard (PAL / Cinema), is now very fast (5 times faster, and more if you have a computer with many processors).
✔ …and a lot a minor bugfixes/improvements.
Good videos.


version 2.01 (2013-01-14) :

Major BugFixes:


version 2 (2012-12-12) :

Some bug fixes more!
And Mountain Lion compatibility (the app is signed now, so your system accept now to launch it).
It's the first version available onto the Mac App Store…
Good videos.


version 1.995 (2013-01-12) :

Major BugFixes:


version 1.993 (2012-11-13) :

The "bugs hunt" version.

Some few visible changes, but noticeable…
• Broadcasting: add an iPhone export format.
Good videos :-)


version 1.992 (2012-10-01) :

OOps! …I release a version 1.991 which was not functional (it was -more or less- my working version, with a lot of options that did not work :-/)
Here is the real version (its news are listed under the "Version 1991").
Still some new features:

• compliant with Mac OSX 10.8 MountainLion (was not really compliant before)
• A new button: to preview your menus without having to generate your disk first ;-)
• Options are re-organized (it's simpler though more powerful).
Good videos


version 1.991 (2012-09-21) :

Version …bugfixes!!!

Eg (correction of multiple "random behaviors" of the application):
PS: I see no reason anymore to use the old 1.6 version, this one advantageously replaces it ;-)


version 1.99 (2012-08-20) :

A very late version, sorry:

New version: with DVD-VIDEO module and "HD modue"
Good videos.

This preview version expires on September 20, 2012 (…waiting for the next one ;-)).


version 1.985 (2012-03-11) :

New version: just a few visible differencies for you (but 153 modifications/corrections since previous beta version release ;-))

good videos


version 1.984 (2012-02-20) :

Sorry I'm late (beta#3 was not usable anymore, but the beta#4 was not ready/available!)
What's new (just some parts of all changes):

Example: Demux now corrects audio and video sync during extraction (what is the aim to manage to separate components of a file onto disk? …if you does not manage to group them again while keeping the file's original sync ;-))
Good videos


version 1.982 (2012-01-06) :

3rd ßeta version, corrections:
