miDVD and miDVD Pro
Submitted by justin on Wed, 03/04/2013 - 10:37
miDVD Pro has had a price drop of 50%. It's now $9.99US!
We've decided to drop the price of miDVD Pro to see how it sells at a lower price.
miDVD Pro isn't the best selling DVD burner on the Mac App Store yet, so we're giving it a push along to make it more affordable to more people.
We've tried every DVD burner on the Mac App Store and while we're obviously biased towards our own stuff, miDVD Pro is definitely the easiest burner to use out there, all while producing top quality results.
Give miDVD Pro a go today and see what we mean!
The Mac App Store version of miDVD Pro has no trial option, but our Shedworx version does, so give that a go for free to try out everything except actually burning the disk.

This is a bug fix release that addresses a number of crashes as well as a fairly major problem around disk burning failures which affected a high number of users.
miDVD continues to be a free app, so give that a go if you ever need to burn a quick DVD.
miDVD Pro is available in Trial Mode from Shedworx.com where you can do everything except actually burn a DVD. This is a great way to try out the Pro features like Projects, Themes and multiple videos then preview your DVD on your Mac.

We're coming to MacWorld! Again!
We're all set and heading to MacWorld in chilly San Francisco in a few days time.
Shedworx will be in booth 1010, on the right hand side of the Expo hall, near Appalooza.
Its been two years since we were at MacWorld and a lot has changed for us in that time.
The biggest thing for us has been Smart Converter. Smart Converter is the number one free video converter for the Mac worldwide and Smart Converter Pro is the top rated, most popular and highest grossing video converter on the Mac App Store. Through Smart Converter and Smart Converter Pro, Shedworx software is now on a significant percentage of all Macs out there. This means a huge number of people use our stuff, and we can't wait to talk to people about it.
If you're in the Bay area, we'd love to see you down at MacWorld. As part of our booth package we have an almost unlimited number of Expo passes to hand out, so if you want to save $25 on the door charge, drop us a line at email@example.com and we'll have a pass waiting for you at the door.
Among other things, we will be selling the MacWorld SUPERBUNDLE! All of our apps in one super bundle for $40 - a discount of 80%, available only on the Expo show floor.
Here's the flyer we will be handing out...
For those who can make it to MacWorld, we can't wait to see you there. For those who can't, stay tuned, we'll have our MacWorld post and photos up real soon!

We've got a new logo!
We started Shedworx in 2007 and quickly threw together a logo and brand.
Five years and a few million app downloads later, and its time for a new look.
We've gone with a simple branding with a splash of colour to represent the different things that we do.
The swirls even contain the S and W initials of the Shedworx name.
We hope you like it!
This is the new branding for our journey to MacWorld Expo 2013 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. More on that soon...

Mountain Lion support for Shedworx apps!
Today we finished our application updates for Mountain Lion support.
Now, everything except HD Quick Look has been updated to support Mountain Lion.
This means that all the Shedworx apps that you download from shedworx.com (not the App Store) now include the Developer signing that is required for an app to run under Mountain Lion.
All the apps have also been submitted to Apple for updating on the Mac App Store, so that will happen when it happens. There seems to be a big backlog with the App Store review process at the moment, probably due to all the apps being updated for Mountain Lion.
HD Quick Look
HD Quick Look is a still under development while we decide whether or we can update it to work under Mountain Lion.
We will put out a separate post with details of where we end up with this.

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,
