A Central hub for your films and clips

iDive is the must-have tool for cataloging and organizing all your videos. iDive allows you to import any video file format that can be opened by QuickTime and keep track of your videos, CDs or DVDs. iMovie users will find a tool that lets them browse through all their projects and catalog clips captured in iMovie.

iDive integrates seamlessly with VideoPier (able to read video formats not supported by QuickTime) and is able to access files from VideoPier in order to catalog them.

Catalog all your movies, in any format

iDive is the ideal cataloging solution for all your movie files as it features QuickTime import capabilities allowing you to keep track of all video files whether they come from a camcorder, are downloaded from the Internet, stored on a hard drive or from CD/DVD.

Now iDive is compatible with even more video formats such as MPEG2 or AVCHD.

Easy Capture

Just connect your camcorder to your Mac, launch iDive and a few clicks later you’ll be capturing data directly from your camcorder into iDive’s database. iDive scans tape after tape to build an index of your DV Library. iDive detects clip boundaries, extracts information (dates, time, format) and takes sample images from each clip at regular intervals. If you want, iDive can also record the whole clip or simply index your footage by taking sample frames in full resolution.

From the sample images, iDive now allows you to recapture the best moments from your video.
Simply click on the images that you want to retain and iDive will search your video footage for the relevant footage. In this way, you can keep hold of the best moments and memories that are shared between family and friends.

Visualize in a truly innovative way with Power Preview

With iDive, there’s no need to look through your entire footage to see what’s there. With a simple click, iDive can judge the nature, content and recording quality of your clips. Using Power Preview is a shortcut to faster and easier annotation of your footage, since it answers questions about your data.

Navigate your video library easily with iDive, organize and find your clips instantly!

Filter based searches using dates, names, places and events allows you to quickly identify your clips by their content. You can easily assign annotations to your clips using drag and drop technology.

Improved organization and layout of the search window allows you to quickly search your clips using new tabs to indicate names, places and events.

You can now search your videos with even greater ease by using the iDive timeline. Each clip is represented by a bar on which you can visaulize the timeline by day, month or year. Zoom in on the timeline for a more precise search.

Keep your workspace under control - you can now view your video footage in the main window and even select different videos for viewing.
