Cosmos makes looking after your photos and movies convenient, easy and fun. Manage your Library from across the room or across the world. CloudSync keeps all of your devices up to date by syncing your Library to the cloud. Lightning-fast imports from your hard drives and cameras. FlamingoHD will copy in content from your AVCHD camcorder, but only link to content from your hard drives (this can be controlled in the Preferences). Importing from other hard drives is remarkably fast. Supports new iPhone and iPods. FlamingoHD stores your imported movies in their original format. This gives you fast imports and a small library to manage. For AVCHD especially, converted videos take up over 10x the space of the originals. Browse your clips using the handy Filmstrip view. By displaying many Filmstrips on the screen at once, FlamingoHD allows you to quickly browse through a huge number of movies very quickly. Organise your movies, photos and music into Groups and Albums, ready to edit. When you are ready to edit, you can send an Album to your favourite editor. Update your titles, descriptions and other metadata. Each media item can have its Title, Date and Notes updated. Search through all of your content using the simple but powerful FlamingoHD search. Send your projects to iMovie or other Editors, ready to edit. FlamingoHD supports not only video, but image and music files as well.
What is new in this release:
Over the past few months camera manufacturers have released new AVCHD variants in the 50p and 60p area.
50p (and 60p) are the highest level of HD recording available on consumer camcorders today. The 50p refers to the 50 full (progressive) frames per second that these cameras can record. The video from these cameras is the absolute best quality available today.
We have supported the initial 50p and 60p formats used by Panasonic since 2010 so this update covers all 50p and 60p recording formats from all AVCHD camera manufacturers.
LPCM audio support
LPCM is a pro-level audio format used in Pro video cameras.
Over the past year more and more Pro video cameras have moved to the AVCHD video format, away from vendor-specific video formats.
As they have moved into AVCHD, these Pro cameras have begun using LPCM audio, rather than the Dolby Digital 5.1 audio that consumer camcorders use.
LPCM has always been in the AVCHD spec, its just that nobody was using it.
This update to our AVCHD apps now supports LPCM audio in AVCHD videos.
We've also updated all the apps to be signed with the Shedworx Developer Certificate. This allows our apps to be installed and run on Mountain Lion under the default OSX security setting which prevents the execution of non-signed apps.
VoltaicHD is required for AVCHD conversion
