Also expands import, export options
Aquafadas has released iDive 2, bringing the last of its pre-Snow Leopard applications into the fold. iDive creates and organizes video collections. When searching, criteria such as people, dates, places and events can be used. Material can be taken from hard drives, DVDs, flash cards and videotape.
Aside from Snow Leopard compatibility, version 2 adds several new features. Users can for instance export directly from iDive into Final Cut and Avid formats. A new DV capture and recapture feature allows iDive to grab only a necessary portion of DV video for a project, saving space, time and processing power. MPEG-2 and AVCHD import is now supported, and interface improvements allow faster searching and indexing.
iDive 2 requires Mac OS X 10.5 and 1GB of RAM. It costs $80 in a single-user license, and $150 as a family pack.
