VideoPier 1.1 released

Aquafadas has released an update to its organizer and converter for MPEG-2 and AVCHD files, VideoPier. The v1.1 upgrade adds support for Elgato's Turbo.264 USB encoding stick, for a large performance jump when encoding for the iPhone, iPod or AppleTV. Also present is import, visualization and transcoding support for QuickTime-based camcorders from Sanyo, and a new FFMPEG encoder, geared to provide better playback and performance with AVCHD video files.

VideoPier transfers MPEG2 and AVCHD video from camcorders to a user's Mac, and can play back the clips in a window or in full-screen mode. The software organizes clips by events within the interface, and can export to iMovie '06/'08, QuickTime, iPhone, Apple TV and (with VideoPier HD) Final Cut Pro. The HD version adds HDV capture from tape-based camcorders, scene detection, date extraction, custom filenaming and file date override.

VideoPier requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher, and a minimum of a 1GHz processor and 512MB RAM of RAM. It is available for download for $50 (VideoPier) or $80 (VideoPier HD) and now supports volume licensing as well.
