CatDV Pro13.0.12

21 September 2020

Media asset database and video logging product.

Overview

CatDV Pro is a clip logging and cataloging application designed to enhance the productivity of video editors using an existing NLE application.

Do you need a way to quickly see what tapes and other media files you've got, not just at the tape or file level but down to individual scenes and shots? Or a tool to take the drudgery out of logging, with advanced features such as automatic scene detection available at an affordable price?

  • Excellent integration with Final Cut Pro and other professional editing systems.
  • Built in sequence editing, to create rough cut edits from the convenience of your asset management tool.
  • Unlimited user-defined metadata attributes to annotate clips.
  • Enhanced search dialog, with multiple conditions and logical expressions, named filters, and regular expressions.
  • Additional interchange file formats, such as Final Cut Pro XML, Avid ALE, Premiere Pro batch lists, and more.
  • Support for image sequences.
  • Support for reading metadata from additional file formats, including PDF and XML.
  • Verbatim Logger command.
  • Log using timecode event markers within a clip or by creating subclips.
  • Fully customisable preview settings.
  • Customisable clip details panel layout.
  • Timezone and camera clock adjustments to permit accurate date-based correlation of shots taken with different cameras.
  • Support for standard JKL shuttle controls when playing media.
  • Use CatDV Pro as a client to gain access to the networked capabilities provied by the CatDV Server.
  • Catalog arbitrary files, not just media files.
  • With the optional CatDV MXF Option, read metadata from MXF and XDCAM files, and import Avid or P2 clips and automatically sync up video and audio as an MXF metaclip.

What's new in CatDV Pro

Version 13.0.12:
  • Add a new multitrack audio proxy export setting that creates a separate file for each audio track for use in the web client.
  • Change the default naming of extra hi-res stills when exporting a movie to _poster.jpg (also for use in the web client).
  • When moving, renaming or deleting a media file offer to rename all the various proxies defined by media store mappings (including film strips, audio proxies, etc.) at the same time.
  • Add support for calculated picklists and select buttons with different colours.
  • Fix an issue with Move To Trash not working on MacOS Catalina.
  • Fix behaviour of the 'exact clip names' option.
  • Fix an issue with reanalysing image sequences, and support quick folder scan image sequences.
  • Add a new 'Halve, not to exceed' frame size option when exporting movies which will scale the image down using exact powers of two only.
  • Add a new 'At most one audio track' option (for web proxies).
  • Use ImageMagick if it's installed to handle files such as EPS and SVG.
  • Add a new preferences option to force all exports to default to a specific output folder.
  • Fixes related to handling of RED metaclips.
  • Better handling of transparent images (including feature code GREYBG to create thumbnails with grey rather than black background).
  • Recognise CR3 files.
  • Change AAF importer to support reading large files with embedded essence.
  • Native player fixes.
  • Other fixes related to BRAW export, handling of AMA-linked clips, exporting ProRes, film strip exporter, proxies for PDF files, reading certain WAV files, using the FFmpeg 'image2' image sequence exporter.

A great app - very configurable. It does much more than an average user needs, and that makes it hard to dumb down. but once you do it, this keeps working really well.

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!
