AddMovie2.0.3

25 April 2016

Concatenates several files into a single QuickTime movie.

Overview

AddMovie is an app utility for easily joining several files into one single movie, and performing the inverse operation of splitting a movie at select frame times into multiple movies. You can also use AddMovie to convert a set of movies to other formats. Various options are available in the Preferences window, such as: choosing export format, making a "self contained" (copy video and sound from all source movies) or "reference" movie (yielding a smaller movie file with dependencies), and chapterizing. Many more!

Highlights
  • Combine movies, saving in various movie formats
  • Create slide shows of pictures
  • Modify duration of movies
  • Batch export movies to various formats
  • Add movie chapters
  • Edit movies
  • Play movies at arbitrary rates, including sound files
  • Split movies at arbitrary points
  • Set a movie's poster frame, and count frames
  • Extract sound track into a sound file
  • Much more!

AddMovie imports all file formats supported by QuickTime. AddMovie outputs QuickTime (mov) file format, as well as exporting to other file formats provided by the QuickTime codecs on your system. Use the Preferences window to specify output options.

As I write it is June 2016 I have had some interaction with this developer. The last success I had with this software is at present. However I had to use 10.6.8 to accomplish that. If I took it into 10.9 I got nothing but problems. I have experienced this same problem with other packages.. I keep a 10..6.8 partition available just for that reason. Add Movie was a good piece of work . I hope to some day find a comparable replacement. h dot toelle at cogeco dotca

Numerous attempts to contact the developer have met with absolute silence.

Like RJphotovideo, I bought the Limit Point Utilities Bundle quite some time ago, but getting any help at all has been fruitless.

Very disappointed, and annoyed.

Caveat emptor!

Still doesn’t export to Matroska (.mkv) or do many of the other modern video manipulations that are common capabilities in lots of other such apps.

Thanks to the developer for fixing the Help menu’s link to the website, but futzing around with the edges of this app can’t hide the fact that it’s functionality and capabilities haven’t substantially improved in many, many moons. It’s now something of a dinosaur.

iFFmpeg costs 26 cents LESS than AddMovie, it can do everything that AddMovie does, and it’s MASSIVELY more capable. iFFmpeg is probably THE highest rated video conversion and manipulation app made for Macs (at any price point), it’s frequently updated with real improvements (not just niggling little fixes), it’s easy to use once you’ve figured out its basic organization, and its developer is unbelievably responsive — he often integrates new features and releases the update within just a few hours or days of customers’ requests. And perhaps most importantly, MacUpdate.com constantly lauds iFFmpeg, but for many years (until its recent conversion to a more commercial, developer-driven business model) it recommended AGAINST buying ANY Limit-Point Software products due to their horrendous support and onerous business practices.

You will undoubtedly be happier with iFFmpeg (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/35846/iffmpeg), or even MPEG StreamClip.

AVOID. This developer is useless, as well as their website. I have their "Limit Point Software Utilities Bundle" (even their link on this page is useless) where you get all of their apps with updates forever. Yeah, good luck. Anyone else having problems? Leave a comment, and maybe I'll start legal action to get them to honor their comments.

Although it took 14 days. The developer did with regret finally contact me. He did resolve the issue I was having more effectively than I had. Better late than never.

This program works quite well. However after 4 eMail messages over a period of 5 days requesting support in a very reasonable tone and no reply I can only conclude this developer will be happy to take your money and then leave you high and dry. Although I did enventually resolve my support problem through other channels. The developer "Limit Point Software" has managed to push this Consumer past the limits of customer care. Thank you

I have had about as much of this constant updating as I can take. For more than a year this app has been updated at least once a week, and recently twice a week, and I am sick of it. You can have your damned license back, I'm sick of you. Developer, Please consider getting a life, because your CONSTANT UPDATING is starting to ruin mine.

Although this is a good program, it still just does not come up to the standards of VisualHub. I know it has been discontinued with no support. but it is dtill on the wen in version 4.0, 5.0 beta 2 and allegedly 5. The only problem is finding serial numbers for them but they can be found. I have put up to 18 hours of AVI video on a single sided disk in dolby 2.0 in DVD format that pay excellently on my DVD player in great quality. It is not perfect and does sometimes locks up when doing steps 2 or 3 which is the converting stage to a TS folder but those are rare. I have even taken PAL movies with extras and converted them to NTSC keeping the extras intact but that was a job in i self. It also does a great job with music as well. Version 5 even added iTunes to the list of converters. AddMovies is a great substitute for VB but to this date, nobody has been able to duplicate the abilities and ease of use that was found in VB even though the entire source is available to any programer. I have tried so many video compilers and converters since VB ended. and I still go back to it for my video processing and yes it still works under 10.5.8, I cannot speak for Snow Leopard since I am running a G5 dual 2 gig processor with an ATI X800XT card in it. On a side note about 2 wks ago I fell down a full flight of stares with my Mac in hand and after getting out of the Hospital I called about 10 Apple techs about the odds of plugging it back in while I was using my old Pismo and got a 40/60% in favor that it should work or at most blow the power supply. So I hit the reset switch on the motherboard, plugged and hit the power button with nothing attached. Again bare in mind this fell with me down a full second floor staircase with me due to my vertigo. As soon as I hit the button I heard the start-up chimes and listened to the HDs and I could tell it was booting by the sounds. At that point I painfully cleared the area where it when, plugged the monitor, keyboard and trackball in and before starting did a PRAM and Firmware reset and let the Mac boot. First the chimes, then the Apple and ticker came up, then it went blue and then the desktop came up almost as if nothing happened. The only thing out of whack was my dock but everything else that was set for start-up did. Now to you PC users out there, do you think your PC would have survived such an intense fall? The only 2 things I could not do was get the plastic plate to sit and I solved that by using some masking tape but the Metal Plate was not going back on because the cosmetic damage was on the right side like two face. Then I threw every diagnostic tool at it and I got a CLEAN bill of health. Since then except for a few bugs cropping up once once in a while I have had my Mac running as long as 48+ hours without a hiccup. Thank you Apple for making a machine that can take such a beating and could still survive. I have other stories of Macs durability, one involving Steve Jobs that I plan to post in my blogs on YearBook.com. I already have some up there under Robert Lewis if you wish to pursue them.

I make it a point never to do business with people who use words I can't understand (e.g. concatenating), because I always think they're trying to take advantage of me. So, for future reference take out concatenating and put in a word that is easily understood by us Stupid people, OK? Carson Cole imdoubleplay@comcast.net

AddMovie is listed as FREE, it is not! Addmovie requires a mandatory donation to get a registration number. That's just wrong.

I sent a donation via PayPal three days ago, to receive the code to unlock the product. They never sent me a code and they don't reply to my emails. Has this been discontinued?

I bought this little movie tool, and each time I use it I'm glad I did. I've got more expensive movie apps that can join movies, but I always use this one because it's so simple and efficient. The Chapterize feature alone is worth the price.

I've tried this application and it works for a while. The problem I find is after some time the movie is rendered useless. Quicktime gives an error message saying that certain information can't be found and that the movie is unplayable.... which is a pain of course if you've deleted the original! MovieCat Plugin 1.0 allows you to do the same thing this app offers, so I'm gonna try that instead.

The developer's responsiveness to the comments of AddMovie is highly laudable. After my first review of AddMovie, most (if not all) of my concerns have been addressed to create an even better program. Thanks!

your updates keep coming, many thanks for all the work you put into this... would it be possible for you to include ver. nos. on upcoming updates (ie: "AddMovie117.dmg") so that we can more easily keep track? Again, appreciate all you do.

Version 1.1.7 provides the option to not "flatten" movies, so that the joined movies may be referenced or self-contained.

The problem I have with this application is that instead of just joining movie clips together, it renders a completely new clip, which takes a very long time even on my dual core G5. Spitfuse and portfolius allow you to create referenced and selfcontained files and operate much faster.

The basic principle behind AddMovie is simple, but wonderful and useful. I've been searching for a utility to easily stitch a couple of movie files together, and none of the software I already had was doing the trick. Unfortunately, I feel that the interface is somewhat kludgy and it doesn't always flow as well as it could. I first expected the Add button to add movies to the list. The Add button actually combines the movies together, so that button should probably be named something more appropriate, like Merge, or Save Movie. I was also looking to see if there was a way to click on a menu item or button to get an Open File dialog to add movies. That doesn't exist either, movies have to be added by dragging and dropping into the main window. When I did drag and drop my files into the list, they were scattered in the list, and not sorted as they appeared in the Finder, which struck me as odd. Fortunately, there is a Sort button, but that the files ended up jumbled in the first place seems odd to me. And when I tried to reorganize the list by moving some items around, the program locked up on me. One feature I'd love to see would be a Finder-like column view which would allow one to preview each movie clip listed in the table, which would make it easier for someone to determine which video is which when sorting them out in a particular order. So did this utility do the job? One set of movies I put together flowed together wonderfully, no problems at all. Another set I put together seemed to lock up when trying to transition from one movie to the next. If you need a simple utility for a one-time job, this application should do the trick for you.

I use an older version with 10.3.9 without problems. I haven't tried the newer versions to see if they maintain 10.3 compatiblity. I'd like to see the ability to cut parts off a movie included in a future release.

Excellent application. I agree with Boris, a progress bar would be nice. But for a free app, I will not b#$%h. I joined 6 Imovies together that where originally 300 megs total. The end result was a 299.9 meg file. PERFECT!

Well, doesn't this little app ROCK :-) Despite the fact that there are no preferences you can edit, and despite the fact that the joined file ends up being nearly twice the filesize of the segments being joined, I still applaud the developer of this handy utility.
