Movienizer is een programma dat moet helpen bij het organiseren, catalogiseren en beheren van een filmcollectie. Invoeren van nieuwe films kan handmatig, maar ook door de barcode van de doos voor de webcam te houden. Alle informatie wordt uit diverse onlinedatabases gehaald. Het programma kan ook worden gebruikt om een filmindexpagina voor de HDi Dune mediaspelers te maken. Een licentie voor Movienizer kost ongeveer 40 euro. Donderdag is versie 6.2 uitgekomen en de belangrijkste veranderingen die hierin zijn aangebracht, kunnen hieronder worden gevonden:
Improvements and new features in Movienizer 6.2
- It is now possible to download movie connections (for kinopoisk and imdb). For movie series (for example, Star Wars), the series name and the number in the series are assigned automatically.
Movienizer 6.2 can download information about movie connections: prequels, sequels, spoofs, references, and so on. In particular, it became more convenient to work with movie series. Now Movienizer will automatically assign a name to the corresponding movie series and will inform you if there are other movies from the series:
- Downloading awards for people.
Movienizer 6.2 downloads information about awards received by this or that actor / actress, director, etc. You can see the awards by switching to the "Awards" tab on the person's page. Click on the award's name to show all people from your collection that received the award.
- Showing main movie awards under the movie cover.
If a movie received some awards, the corresponding image will be shown on the movie page, under its cover. You can click the corresponding image to let the program show all movies from your collection that won the same award.
- Selecting several images in the "Edit info" window for movies / persons to change the picture type or delete the selected images.
On the "Pictures" tab of the "Edit info" window for movies or persons, you can do various things with images of the corresponding movie / actor: add, delete, change type, change order, etc. In Movienizer 6.2 you can process several images at once. Use "Ctrl" or "Shift" keys to select multiple images.
- Changing the order of items on the "Collection" tab.
For your convenience, you can not only remove existing items or add new ones on the "Collection" tab, but also move items up and down the list to the desired position. Select an item in the "Manage" - "Customize collection" window and use the highlighted buttons to move it up or down.
- In the statistics window, new items showing popularity of actors and directors.
In Movienizer 6.2, new items are available in the statistics window: actors and directors.
- Full screen mode for the built-in player.
You can play movies directly from your Movienizer catalog with the built-in or with your favorite external video player (this can be selected in "Options" - "Play options"). Movienizer 6.2 allows watching movies in the full screen mode.
- New version of the Video File Renamer plugin.
It is easy to rename your video files using the Video File Renamer plugin. The plugin allows combining information from your Movienizer database into different patterns, creating filenames and folder names according to a certain scheme. Movienizer 6.2 includes a new version of Video File Renamer. The plugin can now also rename associated files (images, description files, etc.).
- All scripts are checked for updates at the program's startup, missing scripts are downloaded.
Movienizer depends on scripts when it downloads information about movies and actors from the internet. It is necessary to have the latest versions of scripts in order to download correct and full information. Movienizer 6.2 checks for all script updates on startup.
