VideoPier manages MPEG2 and AVCHD for Macs

updated 04:25 pm EDT, Fri October 10, 2008

VideoPier 1.0 launched

Aquafadas has released VideoPier 1.0, an MPEG-2 and AVCHD-capable organizer and converter. The software is based on the open-source ffmpeg component, and is available in standard and HD versions. It transfers the two video types from camcorders to a user's Mac, and can play clips in a window or in a full-screen mode. The software organizes clips by events within the interface, and can export to iMovie '06 and '08, as well as formats including QuickTime, iPhone, Apple TV or (with VideoPier HD) Final Cut Pro. Exported files are tracked.

VideoPier also imports previously-copied clips from other locations, and in its HD version adds HDV capture from tape-based camcorders, along with scene detection, date extraction, custom file naming and file date override.

VideoPier requires Mac OS X 10.4.4 or better and a minimum of a 1GHz processor (G4, G5 or Intel) and 512MB RAM. It is available for download for either $50 (VideoPier) or $80 (VideoPier HD).

    Only ten seconds?

    I downloaded the fully functioning demo - which will give me 10 seconds of video preview if I can get it to work. So far it does nothing at all, and the help and wiki are just about empty. I probably would buy it if I knew it worked, as I am desperate to get my AVHCD footage into my computer. But I'm not buying it if I can't try it properly. Ten days would be more like it.
