Aero Quartet announced the immediate availability of SimpleMovieX 3.7 on Thursday. The new version improves the handling and preservation of metadata throughout the editing process.
SimpleMovieX is a lightweight Mac OS X movie editor. Its feature set is similar to QuickTime Pro, but adds the ability to edit, in addition, the AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 formats.
"Powerful editing operations like splitting a movie into clips, a Batch Converter, an Audio Waveform tool to make sharp audio editing and synchronization, are among most appreciated features of version 3. SimpleMovieX also provides a search pane to quickly find a sequence and an adaptable timeline for accurate playhead positioning even in large duration movies. Huge files beyond 4GB, for example 6 hours of TV recording, can be edited without truncating," said Benoit Joossen, the president of Aero Quartet.
SimpleMovieX 3.7 requires OS X Panther or later and is priced at US$35.00. The QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component (available from Apple) is required for MPEG-2 capabilities. An unlimited demo version is available for occasional users or trial.
