Amazing app turns movie stills into slideshows or proof / contact sheets!

by Fred Showker

 MovieBriefs 1.3.1 is now available in the Mac App Store Here's a new video utility that will create image contact sheets from your movies! MovieBriefs extracts up to 400 images and displays them in an onscreen grid. MovieBriefs, not only prints and exports overview images, users may also create slide shows and share images via e-mail or with popular internet services like Facebook and Twitter. The MovieBriefs 1.3.1 update includes enhancements to slide show playback, improved timing accuracy, a new movie info panel, and adjustable image output sizing.

Douglas A. Welton, einstein's legacy Chief Product Officer says

Quoting  begins With this release, we sought to refine the user experience for media services professionals, video content creators and editorial production staff who use MovieBriefs to summarize their video content ... We added new features for slide shows and timing, but we've also simplified many of the most common tasks. Quoting  ends

Contact Sheets: When MovieBriefs creates a contact sheet, you control the portion of the movie to be used and the number of rows and columns displayed on the final contact sheet.

Movie Segments: The MovieBriefs time range slider gives you control over what portion of the clip will be used to generate the contact sheet. You have the option of using just part of a movie or choosing to use the whole thing.

Slide Shows: MovieBriefs creates a standard OS X slide show from the images used to compose your contact sheet and display them on any screen connected to your system.

Sharing: Once you have created a contact sheet, MovieBriefs allows you to share the image via e-mail, using popular internet services (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, etc.) or with local applications like iPhoto or Aperture.

More Sharing: Contact sheets may be shared by dragging the image from the MovieBriefs document window and dropping it onto a desired application. You may also copy an image and paste it where you need it.

Time Display: If you rest your cursor over a frame in the contact sheet, MovieBriefs shows the display time for that frame as a standard OS X tooltip.

System Requirements : Mac OS X 10.9 or higher, and 1.0 MB
