I flicks 3 is the latest update to an extremely valuable software!
It is an excellent application for incorporating metadata into a movie or TV episode.
It’s very simple to use, it also has a convenient batch option - drag, drop, make a few tweaks, select import into iTunes, then press Start. Simple and easy!
So….what does it do?
It looks up your video files (based on file name or whatever you put in the search field ) from several online databases, and then adds the metadata and artwork to them.
It will also encode the files to fit on almost every single device you could think of!
Included in the metadata search it also finds the release dates, actors, description, artwork, and more!
For movies, it adds rectangular, and for TV shows, it adds square artwork, as the iTunes Store does.
iFlicks’ also has user definable rules, available in the app’s preferences. I use these mainly for my personally edited home movies. It lets you choose what the app does when it loads files, after metadata is updated, and after videos are processed. I have it set to add my personal artwork, season & episode, tagline, etc.
The developers are ALWAYS listening for feedback. Very responsive.
This year they have switched to a subscription model. This seems to be where everyone is slowly heading.
All in all…..iFlicks does an amazing job of making video importing easy.
If you like a clean iTunes library and are always adding TV shows and/or movies……. It is worth it!
