  • 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
What's New
Version 1.9.9:
  • Reloading very large file lists can be time consuming, as a new movie is created for each file. An indeterminate progress indicator has been activated to provide additional feedback in the file list window as it works to reestablish the previous file list. (Remembering the file list is optional, select in Preferences.)
Requirements
Intel/PPC, Mac OS X 10.4.4 or later

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 would suggest PORKPIEHAT be grateful that the developer is actively improving the app. I would also suggest that he get a life!

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.

Ah! This is a new one, I never had a request to stop updating any of my programs.

I do have a life. In addition to creating AddMovie I have more than 70 individual Mac and iPhone apps I work on, all the time. Recently I have been generating numerous beta versions of my upcoming release of version 2.0 of Mailings, my bulk emailer. In the past month and a half I have produced 12 beta versions for users to try and test.

You can see all the programs I work on if you visit my website: http://www.limit-point.com/

I also have three children, two in college and one graduated from college. Yeah I do have a life. Seems to me someone else may need to find a life.

Although not updated quite as frequently as once a week, like you say, it is updated often. Probably on average about every other week.

That's because I like AddMovie, I like working on it, and other people like it. It's fun! I have added quite a few nifty features to it this year, and I plan on adding more, with more updates. If you don't like it, and the program is alerting you that there are software updates, just turn off that feature in its preferences.

Here is how to do that: Select Preferences from the AddMovie menu, go to the "General" pane. Then at the bottom deselect "Check for software updates automatically on program launch." However, I don't think this is your problem because I have not updated the version in software update since 1.9.0.

Ciao

Geez, its not like he's forcing you to update. You should be grateful that the developer takes pride in pushing out the best version of this great app as much as he can, whereas others leave their buggy apps as is for months. Maybe you should get over your compulsion to check this site/update your apps.

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.

Please excuse the typos, my keyboard needs a good cleaning (as so my head) and some of the keys are not always responding as I type. The misspelling I take blame for, because I did not proof it as closely as I should have. My Doctor said it will take 3 to 4 weeks before my back heal and the fogginess in my head goes away.

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?

If serious, that has to be one of the most inane comments I've seen here.

Perhaps consult a dictionary and expand your vocabulary rather than asking/expecting people to conform to your weakness?

Concatenating means to link things together....


How could one take advantage of you with this word? How could one mislead you by this word?

Were you mislead thinking that something magical was going to happen when you concatenated your files?

It is useful to concatenate files in several situations, one is a film maker who wants his files linked up in order to watch a video in sequence. Another is someone with a camera that records on digital media, such as the SONY DCR-SR68, which makes a seperate file for each time that you press record/stop.

Mac OS X comes with a dictionary. Use it. After some time of looking up unknown words, you may find your vocabulary has expanded. Or if you're really stupid, you won't be able to use the dictionary. Judging by your post, I'm betting on the latter.

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!
