Movie Collector lets you catalog your DVD movies in a database automatically by just typing the movie title or scanning the DVD barcode to download all data from various sources on the Internet.
Browse your collection by a series of organizing factors, or use the Thumbnail View to view your cover images. Use the integrated Loan Manager to track which DVDs you loaned and to whom. The demo version of this app caps your database at 50 movies.
The year “twenty-twenty” is coming up, so here’s Movie Collector v20 for macOS! In this release we added support for the macOS Dark/Light Mode, a new HDR field and enhanced the CLZ Cloud syncing system with many new fields and back cover images
Yes, your Movie Collector software now finally supports the macOS Light vs Dark mode setting (available in Mojave and Catalina). That is, if you have your macOS set to Dark mode, Movie Collector now nicely shows up with a dark background in all screens! To change your macOS settings for light, dark or auto mode:
The change will immediately be effective in Movie Collector!
We’ve added a new HDR field on your Edition Specs tab so you can set up what type of HDR is used for your 4K edition. Pick between HDR10, HDR10+ or Dolby Vision
We have recently updated our CLZ Cloud storage and the CLZ Movies mobile app to support many more fields. In today’s v20 release, Movie Collector for macOS becomes fully compatible with the new sync system and mobile app
These are all ‘edition-specific” fields, that is, information specific to the DVD, Blu-ray or 4K edition that you own. The following extra fields now sync with the CLZ Cloud / Movie Connect / CLZ Movies:
Please note that after updating your software to version 20, Movie Collector needs to upload any movie entry that contains information in any of the above fields. For some users this could mean almost your entire collection needs to be synced to the CLZ Cloud again. This is necessary to upload your data for the above new cloud sync fields
We are aware this can take a long time, especially for large collections, but there really is no way around this, sorry
With this big update for Movie Collector we’re adding custom back covers to the sync!
We introduced a new checkbox “Custom Image” in the Edit screen for back covers of movie entries. This checkbox will be automatically checked when you replace the Core image, e.g. by using Find Cover Online, by dragging and dropping or by using the Browse button to add a local image
Once this Custom Image box is checked, that cover will automatically sync to and from the CLZ Cloud
Same as with custom front covers, you can automatically check your database for custom images by clicking menu Tools / Maintenance / Auto Mark Custom Images. You only have to do this once! Also, they will always stay marked as custom, so that even if you clear your cloud and sync everything again, they will re-upload automatically
