CatDV 11.1 Release Notes

Thank you for downloading CatDV or CatDV Pegasus 11.1. This application will function in a very basic save- and export- disabled demo mode unless you enter a valid registration code. Please contact us or visit our web site to request a fully functional time-limited evaluation license or to be put in touch with your nearest reseller or systems integrator. This is a major upgrade version of CatDV and users of CatDV 10 or earlier need to purchase an upgrade to use CatDV 11 unless you are under a current software maintenance agreement and have registered your agreement. Check the Registration tab of CatDV's Preferences to see what license you have.

Workgroup and Enterprise Server users please note that this version is designed to work with CatDV Server 6.9 and later.

Please see the Version History below, and "What's New In CatDV 11.1" from the application Help menu, for details of recent changes.

Moving to CatDV 11

When you first use CatDV 11 after using CatDV 10 there are a couple of points to note to help you get started quickly:

Technical Support and Software Maintenance

When you purchase CatDV you get 30 days of basic technical support by email included free. To extend technical support beyond that you can pay for an annual technical support or software maintenance contract.

If you don't have software maintenance you can download minor (point) updates for a period of 6 months at most from when your license was issued. Your license will not be valid for the new version after a major version upgrade.

If you have software maintenance then this covers you for technical support (including investigating issues you report and applying fixes if we agree there is a fault) and all updates to the software as long your software maintenance cover is up to date. This INCLUDES major feature upgrades that may occur during your software maintenance cover.

What is CatDV?

CatDV is a fully cross-platform clip logging and media cataloging application, designed to enhance the productivity of video editors using their existing editing application and anyone who deals with digital media files.

For further details on how to use CatDV, please see the CatDV Reference Guide which is included with the download (in HTML format) and is also accessible via the built in Help menu, and view the online CatDV Tutorials

Please check the web site http://www.squarebox.com/download-links/ from time to time to make sure you have latest version (you can also use the web shortcuts in the CatDV Help menu for this). CatDV is updated regularly, with both bug fixes and feature enhancements, and you should normally ensure you are using the latest available version.

CatDV Editions

CatDV is provided in one of three editions: Standard Edition, Professional Edition, and CatDV Pegasus. Professional Edition has many additional features over Standard Edition, such as named filters, unlimited user-defined columns, and additional file formats supported, and can also be used as a client to the optional CatDV Workgroup or Enterprise Server that stores a central database of clips that can be shared between multiple users). Also available is CatDV Pegasus, which combines all the capabilities of Professional/ Enterprise Edition with the MXF and Archiving options, integration with Avid Media Composer by importing and exporting AAF files, and the ability to define custom actions. For further details please see the main CatDV web site.

There are separate downloads for each of these versions though as they are normally updated at the same time the version numbers and release notes for all the versions are kept in step with each other.

Windows Installation

Requirements

A 64-bit Java Runtime Environment is now included with the installer, so you do not need to install Java yourself unless you wish to run either the 32-bit legacy version of CatDV (see below) or CatDV Worker Node 5 on the machine. In this case you need to install a 32-bit version of Java J2SE 1.6.0 (also known as Java 6) or later from from www.java.com and perform a custom installation of QuickTime choosing the legacy QuickTime for Java option.

Windows Media Foundation is included in Windows 7 and later but if you are using Windows Server you may need to install the optional Desktop Experience module from Microsoft. DirectX is included with Windows but is also available as a download from Microsoft if you need the latest version.

Execute the CatDVPro11.1.???.exe installer to extract the CatDV executable and its library files to your Program Files directory (or other chosen location). The installer will also create shortcuts on your desktop and in your Start menu.

Use of QuickTime

QuickTime is available for download from www.apple.com/quicktime. Apple are no longer providing security updates for QuickTime on Windows so if you prefer not to install QuickTime then CatDV will run without it and will use alternative built-in player technology instead. However, the following features may be limited in functionality (or missing altogether) if QuickTime is not installed:

If you do use QuickTime on Windows you should make sure the QuickTime web browser plugin is disabled as a matter of urgency (the CatDV web interface works with HTML5 video and doesn't require QuickTime). Just as you shouldn't open Word or Excel documents from an unknown source that might contain harmful macros, you should avoid downloading or streaming movies from an unknown source on the internet as these could contain malicious content such as viruses, and streaming movies in your web browser puts you at risk. As long as you only work with movie files that you create yourself, however, in the normal course of your workflow, then we don't believe there is any cause to be unduly alarmed and rush to uninstall QuickTime completely.

Mac OS X Installation

Requirements

CatDV is normally provided as a self-contained fat bundle including the Java VM, though the download file size is correspondingly larger. If you prefer to install Java separately it is available from www.java.com.

Download the CatDVPro11.1.???.dmg file then double click to mount the disk image (where ??? is the version number you are installing). Open the CatDV Installer volume and simply drag the CatDV folder to your hard drive. We suggest you copy it to your Applications folder but you can install it anywhere you choose. Inside the CatDV folder you should see the following items:

Drag the CatDV application from the Applications folder to your dock if you want a convenient way to launch it.

32-bit Legacy Version

Normally, CatDV 11 runs in 64-bit mode. This provides improved memory management and performance when working with large data sets. However, some older QuickTime-related functions are not available to 64-bit applications. This includes the Adjust Frame Size command, DV-based scene detection, and the ability to use tape-based proxies. If you require any of these legacy features you can use a legacy 32-bit version of CatDV 11 that includes access to those features that depend on QuickTime on Java but otherwise has similar functionality to the 64-bit version.

Both regular and 32-bit versions of the launcher executable are included in the same installer and installed at the same time because they share many of the same files and this elimates the need for separate downloads. Please note that on Macintosh the legacy version requires OS X 10.9.5 or earlier and is not compatible with Yosemite. On Windows you need to install 32-bit Java and do a custom installation of QuickTime, including legacy components. Also, the shortcut installed on your desktop is for the regular 64-bit version so you will need to create your own shortcut to the 32-bit executable in the Program Files directory if you intend to use this version.

Please note that the 32-bit version will be removed in a future update, so if you depend on any of the legacy features you should consider modifying your workflow to work with the 64-bit version.

Upgrading a Previous Version

CatDV doesn't install files outside its directory (apart from its preferences file in your home area, which is used by all versions of CatDV) so updating or switching between versions is easy.

On Mac OS X, after dragging the folder to your hard disk you might end up with two versions, eg.

  /Applications/CatDV 10.1.2
  /Applications/CatDV 11.1

Simply launch CatDV from the newer folder, then once you're satisfied it works you can delete the old version. The only thing to remember is if you dragged the application to your dock as a shortcut. If so, just remove the old icon and drag the new application to the dock instead.

Under Windows the situation is similar and you might end up with two directories, eg.

  C:\Program Files\Square Box\CatDV 10.1.2
  C:\Program Files\Square Box\CatDV 11.1

Again, just run CatDV.exe from the latest version and delete (or rename) the old directory when you no longer need it.
