Final Cut Pro X Projects (NeoFinder 8.2)

Post by neo-admin »

NeoFinder 8.2 is able to catalog project information for Final Cut Pro X project files.

If you have enabled the cataloging of video metadata in the Cataloging Settings, NeoFinder will look inside ".fcpxmld" packages, which Final Cur Pro X uses to store your project related information.

At this time, NeoFinder will generate a list of all keywords that are assigned to any sequence in the project, and a list of all video files that are used by the project.

We are looking into adding additional information here, and maybe even allow you to edit some of these, so we are looking forward to hearing your feedback!

If you wish to make sure that any video files actually directly contained in the project packages, make sure to turn OFF the option to Ignore Package Contents in the Cataloging Settings.

NeoFinder 8.2: Slideshow time!

Post by neo-admin »

#NeoFinder8 has a slideshow to present your photos!

A nice way to present your best photos to your family or for clients is to use the new NeoFinder Slide Show.

Select a Catalog, an Album, or just a number of photos and use the context menu command "Play Slideshow."

More about how to use the new Slideshow in NeoFinder 8.2 in the NeoFinder Users Guide:

Need a break?

You can now pause cataloging in NeoFinder 8.2.

In case you need your network speed for a more urgent task.

Thumbnails in cataloging progress windows

Post by neo-admin »

When your are cataloging photos or videos, NeoFinder 8.2 will now show thumbnails of cataloged items in the progress window, if you have enabled the creation of thumbnails for either.

That way, you can already see what NeoFinder is doing.

Watermark your exported photos!

Post by neo-admin »

When exporting and converting your photos in NeoFinder, you can now embed a visual watermark. The new Watermark Presets editor in NeoFinder 8.2 allows you to create any number of presets you may want to use, and the NeoFinder Users Guide explains how this works.

"Everybody remember where we parked!"

Post by neo-admin »

NeoFinder 8.2 will now remember which Catalog(s) or Album(s) you had selected in the LIBRARY when you quit the application. Then, when you launch NeoFinder again, it will select these items for you.

That includes folders in catalogs that you may had selected directly in the LIBRARY.

Turn baby, turn!

#NeoFinder8 can now do a lossless rotation of HEIC photos captured by iOS 15 (and newer) devices and transferred to a Mac by using AirDrop much better...

(don't ask, hehe...)
