Pro Media Tools 1.1.6 released with OS X 10.8 support

Last week we released Pro Media Tools 1.1.6, a minor update to our suite of media management workflow tools.

Mountain Lion support

We're now supporting the recently-released OS X 10.8 update.

Compressor and DVD Studio Pro-compatible chapters

In version 1.1.5, chapter markers set by QT Edit were only visible in QuickTime Player and on iOS devices. By popular demand, we've tweaked them to now show up in Compressor and DVD Studio Pro.

QT Edit can import markers from an FCPX XML file so this is a great solution for users wanting to easily get Final Cut Pro X markers into their compressed export or DVD. It can also import markers from Final Cut Pro 7 and Avid.

QT Edit frame export

QT Edit can now export the current frame of the movie as a PNG, JPG, TIFF or BMP. This is much better than the frame export in QuickTime Player 7 because it always exports as a PCT file no matter which option you select. This causes problems because PCT files aren't supported in 64-bit applications like Preview or Photoshop.

New QT Edit Quick Tasks

We've added extra Quick Tasks to QT Edit for disabling audio tracks. This is especially useful for batch disabling the audio tracks of multiple movies at once.

The full list of changes in this version is here.

Pro Media Tools is an essential toolkit for editors, assistants and other post production professionals. To find out more, watch the overview video, read the user manual or download the free trial.
