Live Capture Plus 2.2

With Live Capture Plus you can easily capture an entire DV tape to disk, either at full DV resolution or using various compressed, lower quality preview formats. And if you use CatDV you can build up a CatDV catalog as a permanent and searchable record of your tapes' contents by directly creating previews and entering log notes in a single pass. View screenshots.
