This product - which did what it should fairly well - was abandoned long ago. This is nothing unusual and after such a long time, you can't expect it to still work. However, it's sad when it easily could. The problem here is the activation. Your original serials won't help you, as a two-step online activation was used, and the necessary Aquafadas servers are long gone. As Aquafadas is still in business, I wish they would find a way to support their original customers.

Have used Pulpmotion 1 and liked it. Registration is a pain and upgrades are expensive. In fact, all Aquafadas' software is expensive. Someone needs to notice the economy ain't good. Thank you.... this is IMHO.

I must say, I tried it and I dont like this app. Mainly because it really IS like iPhoto. It imports videos, renders them somehow (saving the still frames I think?) and then I am supposed to find those videos faster or something... which I dont. The timeline is clumsy in it´s execution and is not easy to handle at all. Also, why should I have yet another app listing my meta data like location, persons and events, when I have the spotlight feature? I can use other apps or even (although not so easily) OS X itself in order to tag my video files with this kind of data. I can see where this app is aiming with the use of video tapes, I mean, REAL tapes, not cataloging files on the HDD. But then again, I am not using tapes for video storage, they are simply not flexible enough. Worst about this app is, once I imported a few (20?) videos into it, I noticed that it already started eating up over 150 MBs worth of "database" stuff and some hard to identify binary files. I really cant use yet another HDD space hog, that´s why I already got rid of iPhoto... Maybe this app is just not for me...

MacWorld reviews iDive 1.8.7 Rating : 5/5 "Amazingly simple drag-and-drop interface, powerful search and filter features" "Video software can tend to be amazingly complicated to master, but iDive is just the opposite". "This represents excellent value for money and proves ideal for less confident home movie enthusiasts thanks to its easy-to-use construction." Here is Macworld's full review for iDive 1.8.6: http://www.macworld.co.uk/digitallifestyle/reviews/index.cfm?reviewid=2518

I wish they offered a bundle deal with PulpMotion. Half off is tempting. I'll have to play with the demo more...

I have so many old clips hidden in my movies folder, this would be a help. The new iMovie requires too much machine for me.

I have been using this for a couple of years now. While there are a few oddities in the user interface, it has been very helpful in organizing clips. The recent 1.8 update has some nice improvements. I'm looking forward to the 2.0 version.

I thought the new iMovie was something sweet, but Apple is just playing catch-up to this app.

Seems like a good program that fulfills a need but, at least for me, it has a few bugs and could be more intuitive. The window that appears upon double clicking Seems like a good program that fulfills a need but, at least for me, it has a few bugs and could be more intuitive. The window that appears upon double clicking a clip in the clip pane has some bizarre layout problems (ie. too big for screen or shrunk to half of the title bar in height, movie covers buttons). Why can't you drag keywords/tags right to the clip? Instead you drag to inspection pane. That's ok but not very intuitive.
