Aquafadas has released iDive 1.9, a new version of their video file cataloging software for Mac OS X. Free for registered users, iDive costs US$79.
iDive is billed as "a central hub" for your movies and video clips. It catalogs any file that QuickTime can open, and can help you track videos on CDs and DVDs, along with iMovie clips in projects you've worked on.
Version 1.9 uses a rewritten capture model that supports more modern QuickTime functionality, according to the developer. It also supports Elgato's Turbo.264 video compression accelerator.
Other changes include improvements to reduce dropped frames between clips, the ability to specify what the camcorder should do after recording, better support for end of tape detection, improved naming of frames on bulk export, support for on-the-fly compression in the capture model, and other enhancements and performance improvements. A number of bug fixes have been made when sorting sources in the Sources list and when setting a custom aspect ratio.
System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later, G5 or Intel-based Mac, 512MB RAM and QuickTime 7.5.5 or later.
