San Jose, Calif.-based Miraizon has updated Cinematize, its tool for extracting audio and video from a DVD. With the release of version 2.0, users can now select video clips as short as a single frame, decode video to any QuickTime-supported codec, save multiple clips in a single file and control such output options as frame rate and decoding mode. In addition, Cinematize 2 automatically synchronizes audio and video as it captures a clip and features performance enhancements for Macs with G4 or G5 processors.
Through Nov. 30, owners of the first version of Cinematize can upgrade to the new one for US$29.95 as a download from the Miraizon Web site or $39.95 if they want a boxed copy. The full version is $59.96 as a download or $69.95 in a box. A demo is available. System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.2, a G3 processor, 128MB RAM (256MB recommended), 2.5MB hard drive space, QuickTime 6.0 and a DVD-ROM drive or a SuperDrive.
