Announcing Videux: the Video Organizer, Player and Workflow Assistant

No Comments

Boca Raton, Florida – Half8Fish LLC today is proud to announce the release of Videux, the company’s powerful new organizer, player, and workflow assistant for MacOS. Videux is highly optimized to get tens of thousands of videos organized and ready for editing. Videux is an indispensable tool for stock videographers and people with large video libraries.

With effective organizational features, Videux can handle just about any video collection with ease, tagging them with keywords, ratings, and flags. Videux keeps track of model releases, license agreements, metadata, and much more, making it easy to see at a glance the state of your video library.

Videux: /vdio/ or “vid-oh”
A mashup of the word video and d’eux (meaning “of them”), a word borrowed from our love of New Orleans. While it’s perhaps not proper French, we think this portmanteau is apropos. Easy to use collections make quick work of organizing an edit. Integration with Final Cut Pro X, iMovie, and Premiere Pro makes your workflow faster and easier. A history view shows exactly what has been done with each individual clip.

Optimized specifically for working with video, Videux can deal with very large numbers of video clips. Whether there are 100 or 100,000 clips in your library, Videux can tackle them and make it fast and easy to find just what you’re looking for using the logical, powerful, and intuitive filter-based user interface. A single click duplicate finder means an end to duplicates that waste storage.

As a sleek video player, Videux makes comparing clips, culling, or just plain viewing quick and easy. Fast clip-to-clip movement, fullscreen playback, frame accurate timecode display, multi-speed playback, and a skimming playhead mean the user can find elusive moments in a given clip in no time.

Playlists make it easy to string together multiple clips for viewing or presentation. Playlist clips can be dissimilar in any way – mix clips of different resolution, frame rate, containers/codec – and Videux will happily play them in sequence. Clips can be repeated inside a playlist, and with the loop option and fullscreen playback, Videux becomes a standalone video kiosk.

“Videux is a problem solver, born to bridge a gap between capturing footage and delivering it,” explained Chris Parsons – Team Videux. “There is the nature videographer who needs to be able to cull and rate footage and keep track of the licenses for clips sold. There is the one-person documentary filmmaker that needs to be able to find key moments in hours of interview footage and then organize clips before sending to the editor. There is the YouTube channel that wants to keep track of what it has done and what it will do next. We designed Videux for these people.”

Versions – Videux ships in three flavors: Videux Pro DL (full version, downloaded from, Videux Pro AS (full version, Apple App Store), and Videux Play LT (player only version, Apple App Store).

Videux Pro AS and Videux Pro DL – Videux Pro AS and Pro DL versions include all of the following features:
* Import by File menu or drag-drop
* Import Final Cut Pro X or iMovie libraries
* Import Premiere Pro Projects (Pro DL Version)
* Player: Plays most modern video formats, more being added contiuously

DEVONthink To Go 2.1.7 brings usability and automation enhancements

No Comments

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho – DEVONtechnologies today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of DEVONthink To Go 2.1.7, the iOS companion to DEVONthink for Mac, with enhancements and bug fixes. Version 2.1.7 adds an option to clear the Global Inbox and makes the grid view available on all devices. The update also improves the decluttering service and enhances URL command support. Updating item counts is more reliable and no longer makes the app unresponsive. Finally, the enhanced error log no longer truncates long entries. The update to version 2.1.7 is free and recommended for all users.

DEVONthink To Go is DEVONtechnologies’ document management solution for iOS. Serving as repository for a large variety of data types it lets users keep their important documents with them at all times. It offers a rich set of organizing features as well as built-in viewers and editors for many file formats. A document provider extension makes documents available in other apps and the fast and reliable synchronization keeps the data always in sync with its Mac counterpart, DEVONthink, without compromizing the user’s privacy.

Use DEVONthink To Go to put all your text files, PDFs, notes, images, and bookmarks into your pocket and have them at hand even when you are not connected to your office network or the Internet.

* Take your documents with you
* Organize your data on the go
* Use super-fast full text search
* Sync via WiFi, WebDAV, or Dropbox

What’s New In DEVONthink To Go 2.1.7:
Version 2.1.7 adds an option to clear the global inbox and makes the grid view available on all devices. The grid view lets users browse their document collection with larger previews and organize them with drag-and-drop, similar to the upcoming iOS 11. It’s activated by tapping the item count button of a group or by swiping right.

The update also improves the decluttering service for saving web pages as clutter-free web archives or Markdown documents. The latter show better previews for documents with embedded HTML code, too. URL commands now let users retrieve an item link for the currently selected document and accept a list of tags to add to newly created items. By specifying a custom return parameter DEVONthink To Go is even easier to integrate with third-party apps.

“Our customers don’t only store and organize their knowledge, they also actively work with it. We’ve already added a solid set of automation capabilities to DEVONthink To Go. Version 2.1.7 further extends this to support a broader variety of workflows,” comments Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.

The “Labeled” smart group is now sorted by label and the enhanced error log no longer truncates long entries. Item counts are updated more reliably and without blocking the user interface. PDFs have a light gray background and items not downloaded are no longer marked as read. Finally, DEVONthink To Go 2.1.7 enhances the encryption for Bonjour connections, improves the reliability, and fixes bugs. The update is free for existing users and highly recommended.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 9.1 or later

Wicked Brainstorm Brings Group Thinking to iMessage

No Comments

Tempe, Arizona – Cloud Hidden Designs, LLC today is pleased to announce the release of Wicked Brainstorm 1.0.3, the easiest and most enjoyable way for Apple iOS users to brainstorm with the people they text with. Previously, ideas were mixed in with other text messages. With Wicked Brainstorm, however, a group’s ideas can all automatically be gathered together, while allowing users to collaborate within Messages. When a Wicked Brainstorm collaboration has been completed, the Wicked Brainstorm list can be transformed into a checklist and a group vote can facilitate the process of determining the best ideas.

Example uses of Wicked Brainstorm include preparing for a trip, arranging weekend plans, making purchase decisions, comparing feature lists, choosing product names, event ideas, product marketing strategies and much more.

One of Wicked Brainstorm’s great strengths is its ease of use and ability of users to participate asynchronously. Users don’t have to be collaborating in real time or be in the same location, and every suggestion has equal visibility and merit, unlike rigidly scheduled meetings where valuable ideas may be shot down before they can even be introduced and considered.

No special accounts or passwords are required. Users within a text conversation just simply add their ideas to the list whenever an idea comes to mind. The ideas appear instantly and additional ideas can be added with the same ease. Wicked Brainstorm is tightly integrated with Wicked Custom Stickers, Wicked Plan and other apps so ideas can be shared among apps. Users can even switch from adding ideas to creating a checklist to voting for favorites with just a tap.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 10.0 or later
* 21.6 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Wicked Brainstorm 1.0.3 is completely Free and available worldwide exclusively through the (iMessage) App Store in the Productivity category. It ships with dozens of stickers that can be modified to reflect a user’s font and color preferences.

LinkOptimizer Lite for Adobe InDesign at $12 on Bundlefox

No Comments

Toronto (ON), Canada – Zevrix Solutions announces that LinkOptimizer Lite, the company’s image processing automation solution for Adobe InDesign, is now available on Bundlefox software bundle. This offer lets users obtain LinkOptimizer at an unbeatable price of $12 along with three other Indie Mac apps of their choice. With the Bundlefox Pick Your Own Mac Bundle discount concept, users can save over 90% of the software price.

“LinkOptimizer is the one product no creative studio can live without,” says Wayne Guy from Edge Graphics studio in Lake Balboa, California. “It saves hours of time, tediously replacing linked images, resizing, batch processing… If you’re a designer or production artist, you need this.”

LinkOptimizer Lite works automatically with Adobe Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links and perform essential image adjustments. For example, with just a click of a button users can:

* Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
* Change their resolution to 300 dpi
* Convert RGB images to CMYK
* Apply sharpening filter
* Delete hidden layers

At the end of the processing LinkOptimizer reimports images to InDesign at 100% in their precise position. In addition, users can choose image resampling methods and work with copies of InDesign documents and images instead of the original files. As a result users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.

Pricing and Availability:
LinkOptimizer Lite can be purchased on Bundlefox as part of a $12 bundle of 4 apps. Trial version is also available for download. Bundlefox customers are eligible to upgrade to the full version of LinkOptimizer at a standard price. LinkOptimizer requires macOS 10.7-10.12 and Adobe InDesign/Photoshop CS3-CC 2017.

The Reviews Are In
Here’s what industry press are saying about Magic Bullet Suite and Denoiser III.

“I have long employed Magic Bullet Suite (MBS) to tweak (or create from scratch) the appropriate look in post-production. MBS offers a robust set of tools that allows broad manipulation of color, diffusion, shadow integrity, and exposure, and it does it all via a simple, easily accessible interface. Other color-grading tools offer comparable capabilities, but only MBS offers the power, performance, and features in such a convenient way. This means MBS is a tool you’ll actually use – and use often.” – Barry Braverman, StudioDaily

“… [Denoiser III] removes camera grain and noise without a trace, and to boot, your footage doesn’t emerge with a ‘buffed’ look. It looks totally natural. Denoiser has saved me in MANY circumstances where I’ve had to push my gain or ISO to an ungodly level.

If I could only live with one plugin suite, Magic Bullet Suite would be it. The price is reasonable and you’re getting several indispensable plugins for your money. I don’t know if I could live without Film, Cosmo and Denoiser, and Looks has long been my go-to if I’m going for a more stylized look.” – Mark Colegrove, MicroFilmmaker

“Denoiser III can process just about any type of footage you could imagine, be it old stock footage, video from a cell phone, film, or digital video. The great thing about the program is that the underlying wrnch AI makes the plugin almost fully automatic. Denoiser senses the footage and tunes the denoising algorithm to achieve optimal results.” – Matthew Allard, ACS, Newsshooter

* When running at dusk or in low light jS Run Pro can improve the runner’s presence to passing traffic or other runners via a flashing screen that acts as a side light.

Armband Optimised:
Typical tracker apps usually display all run data on the one screen and the screen is fixed in one orientation, typically in portrait format on the phone, making a quick glance to read the current run metrics awkward to view if the phone is held in an armband. jS Run Pro’s solution is to offer many enhancements to make monitoring performance whilst running with an armband easy such as:

* Each metric is displayed separately during workout, with big readouts and unique colors
* The unique adjustable angle of display allows the user to rotate the readout of the running metric for the optimal angle to read at a glance
* With one tap the contrast of the screen is boosted temporarily to ensure perfect visibility for any light condition

Pro Features:
jS Run Pro make it easier for serious and pro runners to concentrate on their performance. With jS Run Pro the user is free to choose any one or a combination of the performance metrics to monitor during the run. In addition to the standard metrics (Duration, Distance, Pace, Calories and Steps) displayed during a run, the advanced metrics (Stride, Steps per min and Speed) can also be chosen to display and monitored instantly whilst running. After the run the performance bar charts display is also enhanced to show averages, totals and best performance for all the metrics.

* Requires iOS 10.0 or later

Located in the beautiful city of Zurich, Switzerland, Circulos GmbH was founded in 2014 by George Nasraoui and Andrew J Burns. Switzerland is the place where people master the art of outdoor sports, no matter what the temperature outside, be it 10F or 100F (-12C or 37C) you will see people running or cycling outside. So it was natural for us to get into the fitness apps and it all started when we thought we needed an app that is easy to control by gestures and glance free.
