CatDV Pro is an essential logging and cataloging utility for video editors and everyone else who needs to manage a large number of media files. Video files are analyzed and automatic scene detection is applied to automate the logging process. A thumbnail catalog is built up of all your clips, including an unlimited number of user-defined comment fields that you can search on to quickly find clips of interest. CatDV will also create and manage small preview movies that give you a compact record of your entire tape library even when the full resolution files are offline. Once you have idetified clips of interest, export a batch file or EDL to use these clips in your editing application.
