Frameline has announced a significant update to their MPEG7 video logging and media asset management software for Mac OS X. Its available for 89 (US$139); upgrades are free for existing customers.
Frameline 47 is especially designed to work with video. It scans drives for video files, extracts their metadata and builds an SQL Database. It features file management, editing and annotation tools as well as a Capture interface. The application can be used alone or as part of a network-based video editing and media cataloging workflow.
The new release of Frameline 47 features a completely re-written file scanning mechanism, which enables users to specify exactly which locations they wish to include or exclude in the scan. The application now finally enables full finder type behaviors, such as drag and drop, and gets a new batch file management and tagging tool called move. The Capture tool also gets updated, enabling tagging and editing during capture. A lossless file splitting tool, shared annotation library, new export and import options, plus support for Snow Leopard complete the update.
System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.4 or later, 1GB RAM, (Frameline 47 is a Universal binary.)
Educational discounts are also available on request. A 30 day trial of the application is available for download from the Frameline website.
