I keep trying these beta releases hoping they will finally solve the problem i'm having in OS 10.6 where whenever my Time Machine backup is running, Dropbox always takes an entire core's worth of CPU - even when syncing is paused. So far, it keeps happening. I didn't buy a quad core laptop so one of them could be completely taken up by a tiny file syncing program half of the time :)

still takes an entire core's worth of processor for me for no reason when I'm backing up to time machine…

wow - this is great for free! i didn't expect it to have such a wide array of batch processing tools. It's got pretty much all the stuff i used to use graphic converter for. The interface is not that bad - it's pretty clear how it works. I think people just have really high standards these days :) - i just want something that doesn't take too long to learn and works efficiently once i learn it. This UI i think fits that bill.

Awesome program, but - warning - watch out for a bug i found the hard way: if you have more than 256 frames in a document, it will crash when you try to save and you will lose any work since the last time you saved. Also, frames over #253 it seems will not be saved. Happened to my students on several different machines running OS X 10.6 and 10.7. So just make sure split your project to a new file before you get to 250 frames! If you find that you're over, do an Export (Not Quick Export - that crashes too) before trying to save, because Export seems to work fine on projects over 256 frames. I've emailed the developer about it and hopefully it can be fixed.

This is great. My only gripe is that i'd like to be able to drop media files on the application icon and have it open them like many of these type of apps do, not just on the window of the already open application - that way i could put it in my Finder toolbar and have it available in one step all the time.

Um - i think this is not free - there is just a free "Trail Version" (sic) listed on their website. Maybe I'll take it biking with me today and test it out on the trails :)

So far - awesome! i've wanted an app for this for quite a while. I love "renumber files" (renumber tracks) - that is so useful for what I do with batch bounces from logic using XLD. iTunes can di the same with a applescript, but this is much less clunky. Bravo! I wish it would set the total tracks too when you choose renumber, but its easy to do that separately and I can imagine scenarios where you would NOT want both to happen at once.

Cool! Been looking for a small lightweight audio file converter. This looks great and no-nonsense. One thing that would be super useful though would be a channel format that splits multichannel files into a bunch of mono files.

Logic gets the job done. Still a few annoying bugs/omissions, but overall - love it.

Excellent Raw processing - gets me much sharper and better colored images from my Panasonic GH2 than does iPhoto RAW conversion or the camera's internal JPEG processing! A little more noise, but I'd rather have a little more noise and a lot more sharpness than smudgy blahhhh. It's a little slow to use because updates need to be done manually and take a few seconds to process each time (for a 16MP image on a 3 year old dual 2.4GHz MBP), but the improved image quality is totally worth it. RPP takes longer to compute than other RAW converters because it uses 32-bit floating point math rather than integer math with most others use - which is way more accurate and gives better color resolution. As a parallel, all modern audio software uses 32-bit float processing internally, despite using 16 or 24 bit integer input and output files, because floating point processing just keeps that much more detail. I totally want that fidelity in my images too. I love that pretty much everything can be done with the keyboard - numerically or with arrow keys - rather than just with silly sliders. Occasionally I have run into some bugs where certain controls get grayed out when they shouldn't be, but just restarting the app fixes this, and your last settings for the current image are saved and recalled when you open it again. The other thing I'd like is the ability to have presets so you can just save the entire settings of an image and apply it to another as a starting point. You can do this if the images are in the same folder by setting a "directory default" setting - which is great - but I'd like to be able to save those for later too.

oh - i see - you can save settings - it just requires a donation. Understandable.
