One thing I'm wondering about...VideoSpec is reporting that Apple ProRes 422 HQ (29.97) 1920 x 1080 files are *lower* field first. They should be upper first, but maybe there's a problem in the source clip metadata. Using Final Cut 7 these days is a crap shoot, really, so the FCP-generated metadata could be the problem.
I just noticed the disclaimer stating that development has stopped for this app. That's too bad. I'd *definitely* be interested in a paid version.
What a great little application! Believe it or not, Final Cut Pro 7 and Davinci Resolve will not tell you whether a 29.97 clip is interlaced or progressive. But VideoSpec will! Love that you can do a batch info also. I'll be giving this app lots of good word of mouth (I work in Television).
This software is very easy to use and I it seems rock-solid. It does everything it claims to do, but I wish I could do two things more: 1) Override the "MY_NEW_DVD" destination folder. Even when I custom-name a VIDEO_TS folder, DVDRemaster will still sometimes name everything "MY_NEW_DVD," which makes the batch export feature useless in some cases (because everything is named the same). 2) Export and/or Remaster selected chapters. For instance, if I want to export only chapters 3 and 10 from a training DVD and have them merged into one single VIDEO_TS. These aren't criticisms, because I like the software and it works well, but just suggestions based on my personal use.
Amazing! Finally, I have a way to exchange huge files with Windoze users. None of the other NTFS mounters I've tried have worked properly, especially with larger files (10 GB's and up). I'd always get errors partway through the write. I've tested NTFS Mounter, however, and it no problem whatsoever.
I can sum this up pretty quick: I can NOT live without 1Password. I use it everyday at home and work. Thanks to the brilliant integration of Dropbox, my passwords are always up to date no matter where I am. I can also store all my application serials, credit cards and more. 1Password is rock-solid, also. I haven't had one issue with stability. Love it.
This is one of my #1 must-have app's now. Wow, do I ever miss Default Folder when I'm on a computer that doesn't have it. I use Final Cut Pro daily at work and am constantly importing/exporting media. Default Folder saves me from manually navigating to the same old folders over and over again and that means lots of saved time. My favourite feature of all is clicking on open finder windows and having Default Folder automatically load the path. Simple and Amazing.
Just a note: I forgot to mention the price. I purchased my copy as part of a MacUpdate bundle. The standalone price *is* quite high and I would have rated the value less if I hadn't gotten such a good deal on my purchase.
Great little application! I work in television post-production and we use a lot of high-resolution stills that are severely overkill for video resolutions. EasyBatchPhoto is the perfect solution for us. The settings are very flexible and the processing is fast. Just as an example, I set my widest edge for 1950 pixels, drag and drop a bunch of high-res pictures into the well, set my destination (if it's not already set in the preferences or presets) and that's it. I've now got a batch of resized files that are Final Cut Pro friendly. Support team is responsive, also. I submitted a question/feature request for an option to export saved presets and got an immediate response. I've had no stability issues with photos averaging 4000 x 3000 pixels. Worth every penny.
Someone's got a bug up their ar$e about this app, voting down all the good reviews. MacUpdate should really remove this juvenile smiley crap.
