miDVD and miDVD Pro have been doing great on the Mac App Store and its time for us to fix the bugs that people have come across..
Here's what we've fixed...
When we create a DVD we have to convert your movies into 'DVD' format (that's MPEG2 for the technically-minded). This is the longest step of the whole DVD creation process.
We have updated our conversion engine so that the conversion stage is a lot faster. This means that burning a DVD full of movies (about 2 hour's worth) will take about half the time now!
We had some problems reported with movies using non-standard aspect rations. This resulted in some movies ending up 'stretched' or 'squashed' on the final DVD.
We have completely developed the aspect ratio handling area of miDVD so this should be all good now.
miDVD creates the DVD preview 'on the fly' so that when you are ready to preview your DVD, most of the preview generation has been done and the preview starts straight away.
In some situations the miDVD previewer would crash the app. This was caused by us not correctly handling the fast adding/removing of movies from a DVD project. This is all fixed now, so we don't expect any more problems in this area.
We have tested miDVD and miDVD Pro thoroughly against Mountain Lion and everything works fine.
The main change we have made for Mountain Lion is Gatekeeper signing. This only affects the non-App Store versions of the apps and means that our apps are now signed with our Developer ID. This means that our apps will run on Mountain Lion under the default security setup which prohibits unsigned apps from running.
Our next big thing for miDVD Pro is slideshows. We're working on this now and later in the year we will have a Photo Slideshow feature that we're sure you will love!
Both miDVD and miDVD Pro are now live on shedworx.com and have been submitted to Apple for release on the Mac App Store. Things are moving a bit more slowly on the Mac App Store right now, probably due to the huge number of apps being updated for Mountain Lion. We guess that miDVD and miDVD Pro will be live on the Mac App Store in a few weeks time,
