DropDV Announces AppleScript and Automator Support

Automated workflows makes DropDV even more popular among professionals and consumers alike (October 14, 2005)

DropDV Software is happy to announce that DropDV 2.0.12 includes support for AppleScript and allows integration into Automator workflows. DropDV converts MPEG video into DV format, thus making any MPEG video editable in iMovie or any other DV format video editor such as Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express or Adobe Premiere. The convenience of automated workflows is making DropDV even more popular among both professionals and consumers alike.

DropDV handles any MPEG file, including those from:
* TiVo, ReplayTV and EyeTV devices
* Sony MicroMV and other MPEG camcorders
* Digital Video Recorders
* DVD-R Video Recorders
* DVD-R Camera Recorders
* Digital Still Cameras with MPEG support
* Any other MPEG files your may have

DropDV is simple and easy to use. Just drop your MPEG files onto DropDV to convert them into DV video streams. After conversion, your video is already imported into an iMovie project and ready for you to edit. After editing with iMovie, creating a DVD is just a few clicks away using iDVD. DropDV also enables you to edit your MPEG files using Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express or any other DV video editing system.

To use DropDV with Automator (or any other AppleScriptable application), create an Automator "Run AppleScript" action that contains the following AppleScript:

on run {input, parameters} tell application "DropDV" open input end tell end run

As an MPEG to DV conversion tool, DropDV offers many advantages:

* A Simple, drag-and-drop interface
* Creates projects compatible with iMovie
* Uses high quality bicubic scaling for the best video image
* Full YUV pipeline (no conversions to RGB)
* Converts both video and audio into DV format
* Supports both NTSC and PAL output
* Supports MPEG-1, MPEG-2, Program Streams, Transport Streams
* Splits output DV files for iMovie compatibility (optional)
* Will convert VCD, DVD and any other MPEG file into DV format

A free trial version of DropDV is available for download. A registration key to remove the watermark from this trial version costs $39.99. Upgrade pricing of $19.99 is available for registered users of DropDV 1.
