I am surprised that there has not been a review since 2005. This app has captured without dropped frames for me and correctly separated all clips on a tape without error. I used to use Foottrack.
I like the filmstrip view for my customers.

potentially promising app but the GUI is sadly, as clunky and unresponsive as all the java apps i've tried under OS X. i've also had it bomb out on me and stop capturing three times [edit: make that four, even while i was writing this!] so far [in the space of one tape] throwing up a not-too-helpful "capture failed (memerror 109)" on each occasion. this is in spite of my having 640MB RAM installed and not much else running. unfortunately this means catDV is not a "set it running and leave it to it" programme, which for this type of application, is a serious drawback.

back to the drawing board chaps, methinks!
