AddMovie 1.9.9

A program that concatenates multiple movie files into one
AddMovie is a small utility for concatenating several files into one single Quicktime movie.

AddMovie is a tool that supports various input file formats, including, of course, Quicktime movies.

How to use: Drag files into the main window, re-order and click the 'Add' button.

Tips: AddMovie works with all file formats supported by Quicktime.

Some file formats are not currently supported by default, and in this case you may need to find and install the necessary Quicktime components:
· Flash Video (.flv): To combine movies in this format you can try installing the free open source Quicktime components offered by Perian: Perian Quicktime Components.
· Windows Media Video (.wmv): To combine movies in this format you can try installing the Windows Media Components for QuickTime, by Flip4Mac.

Also note that AddMovie outputs Quicktime file format, and the appropriate file extension is '.mov'.

Main features:

  • Add files. First, drag files or folders from the Finder into the "File List" window's list box, or use the "Browse..." button to navigate the file system for your selections.
  • You can also add items by dragging URLs from your web browser into the file list. AddMovie will download the URL, and if it is a valid file, such as a movie or picture, AddMovie will add it to the file list window. Use the preferences window to specify the directory where downloaded files will be saved. You can also specify if files by the same name will be overwritten. The default download directory is your Internet download directory.
  • AddMovie reads all files that are supported by the QuickTime components installed in your system, or those that you obtained from third party developers. (These are usually installed at "Computer/Library/QuickTime" or "Home//Library/QuickTime")
  • Default components support types like ordinary QuickTime movies (.mov), graphics (.jpg, .tiff), PDF files (.pdf) and rich text (.rtf).
  • A typical third party component is Windows Media Components for QuickTime, by Flip4Mac, which will enable you to concatenate WMV files into QuickTime formatted movies. Another is the Perian component for converting Flash files, a popular video format on the Internet.
  • Because AddMovie relies on QuickTime components to do its job it is imperative that you always have the latest components installed for your system version.
  • Reorder. Once you added your files to the file list you can re-arrange them to determine the position they will appear in the movie. You re-arrange files in the list by dragging them to their desired location. Files are added to the movie from top to bottom in the file list.
  • Add chapter titles. If you are concatenating the movies, and your output format is selected as QuickTime "mov" files, then you have the option of chapterizing the movie. Click the "Options" button to open the Preferences window. Then click the "Chapterize" button. You can let AddMovie choose default chapter titles, or you can edit the chapter titles that appear in the File list window. To edit a chapter title double click on a title to begin an edit.
  • Concatenate the files. Finally, to generate the concatenated movie click the "AddMovies" button. A dialog box will display asking for a name and location for the movie. The appropriate extension for the file will be appended for you.
  • Export the files .Alternatively you can click the "Export Movies" button and each movie will be exported to the format you select in the Preferences window.
  • Splitting a movie. You can split a movie at any point, saving the two resultant movie "halves" into separate movie files. Drag the playhead to the desired split location and click the "Split Movie..." button. You will then be prompted for the name and location of the two movie parts. Note that this operation can take a long time for very large movies. This feature is useful for fitting large movies on multiple DVDs.
  • Setting a movie's poster frame. A "poster frame" is a still image of a movie that represents the movie in places like the QuickTime Player Favorites window and the Finder. The default poster frame is the first frame in the movie. Drag the playhead to the desired frame and then click the "Set Poster" button.
  • Saving a frame to an image file. Move the playhead to the frame you want to save as an image, then click the "Save Frame..." button. You will then be prompted for the name and location of the image file.
  • Extract sound track into an AIFF file. You can extract a movies soundtrack into an AIFF file by clicking the button named "Save Sound..." You will be prompted for a location to save the file.

What's New in This Release:
  • Reloading very large file lists can be time consuming, as a new movie is created for each file. An indeterminate progress indicator has been activated to provide additional feedback in the file list window as it works to reestablish the previous file list. (Remembering the file list is optional, select in Preferences.)
