iDive transforms your videos into a catalog that's easy and quick to put together and access.

Just connect your camcorder to your Mac, launch iDive and a few clicks later you’ll be capturing data directly from your camcorder into iDive’s database. iDive scans tape after tape to build an index of your DV Library.
iDive detects clip boundaries, extracts information (dates, times, format) and takes sample images from each clip at regular intervals. If you want, iDive can also record the whole clip or simply index your footage by taking sample frames in full resolution.

iDive is the ideal cataloging solution for all your movie files as it features QuickTime import capabilities allowing you to keep track of all video files whether they come from a camcorder, are downloaded from the Internet, stored on a hard drive or are from CD/DVD.
Whether your video collection is stored on a memory card, DVD, hard drive or even video cassette, iDive allows you to easily identify, sort, organize and catalog all footage for easy access and use in a central hub.

iDive features :
- Export directly from iDive. A new seamless integration with Avid and Final Cut formats
- DV Capture and Recapture : Download only the video footage required in an instant
- Import more formats with ease. The latest video file formats are now fully supported such as MPEG2 and AVCHD
- Interface and navigation improvements allowing users to search and index footage faster and easier
- iDive is compatible with even more video formats such as MPEG2 or AVCHD

Beware mixing App Store purchase and Website demo - I was very pleased when I used the iDive demo to capture a tape that caused other capture programs to fail. I happily paid the money for the App Store version, only to find that it conflicted with the Web demo -- it won't allow me to capture because it thinks I have the demo version. When I contacted iDive Support, they said that their Web-downloaded app and their App Store app used different licenses, so I should uninstall the app and re-install from the App Store. I have done that several times to no avail, even using App Cleaner and App Zapper to try to get rid of all associated support files. Beyond the initial "reinstall" email from their support, I have heard nothing from them, despite multiple emails over more than a week.

I Don't Like, until it updates. - First of all whenever I export a movie into a quicktime format and when I play it... in the beginning of the movie it's all pixels, gray pixels then they go away for the remainder of the movie.... and then when I try to export a movie into a AVID format it just quits on me everytime...!!!!! Also when I try to play a video from iDive it's really choppy and laggy and I don't like that... Unless you guys don't update this program soon... I will feel like I have wasted my money. :(
