Aquafadas has updated its “digital video shoebox” software
to version 1.5, adding “Mosaic,” a new feature that lets users create motion graphics using their own digital footage.
iDive provides video clip and still image management capabilities, including visualization, tagging, storage, organizational and retrieval methods. You can preview, customize views, drag and drop attribute tags, and view content in a timeline. iDive is designed to work alongside DV editing applications.
The new version of iDive lets users generate animations including a spinning globe, a cartoon-style assemble line, or museum presentation, by loading the clips that iDive has cataloged.
Mosaic solves the main problem plaguing DV users,” said Matthieu Kopp, Aquafadas’ CEO, in a statement, “that their friends and families never see anything they’ve shot on tape because video editing is too time consuming a task.”
Mosaic uses Mac OS X v10.4 “Tiger” technology. Animations can be exported as QuickTime files, sent to a video camcorder, or exported to the video iPod.
iDive costs $70. The upgrade is free for iDive 1.4.x users.
