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.
