exceLogger, miniME ship
Intelligent Assistance has released two new software projects, exceLogger and miniME, the latter of which is used to read QuickTime metadata, imported from non-tape sources, into Final Cut Pro. The application also provides tools to view hidden metadata in XML files or export Excel spreadsheets. Metadata can be remapped to visible fields in Final Cut Pro, while multiple sources can be merged into one field.
exceLogger is used to merge Final Cut Pro XML with log notes made in Excel. Users can combine the formatting and features of Excel while logging existing media. The software can also be used to create new subclips within Excel. Clips are created, updated and linked to Final Cut Pro media in order to make data more readily available.
miniME and exceLogger both require Mac OS X 10.5 and Final Cut Pro 6. The applications are available from the Intelligent Assistance online store for $70 each.
