SimpleMovieX 3.7 Improves Metadata Handling

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.
