Version 3.0
  • Release Date: Mar 18, 2011
  • This version includes a number of minor bug fixes, some improvements to the AppleScript API and a number of stability improvements.
Version 2.5.1
  • Release Date: Jul 5, 2010
  • We have just released a bug fix release for VoltaicHD for Mac.

    This release fixes a problem with FlamingoHD where AVCHD movies were not being sent to Voltaic. This was caused by the updated Applescript API in VoltaicHD 2.5
Version 2.5.0
  • Release Date: Jun 25, 2010
  • This release is relatively minor for the Mac version of VoltaicHD. The key new Mac feature is Native AVCHD output. This function lets you trim and join AVCHD movies as before, but now gives you the option to create an AVCHD movie as output. We create the new AVCHD movie by trimming the source video and audio streams and creating a new AVCHD movie containing unaltered video and audio. This means that that output movie is exactly the same quality as the original.
  • Every video edit workflow that converts formats incurs some quality loss. Native AVCHD editing inside VoltaicHD provides you with 100% guaranteed lossless editing.
  • Version 2.5 of VoltaicHD for Mac is a free upgrade for all current VoltaicHD for Mac version 2 users.

Version 1.7.0
  • Release Date: Dec 9, 2008
  • This release introduces the ability to convert a whole stack of different movie formats, not just AVCHD.
    We now support DV, MPG, M4V, MP4 and TOD file extensions.
    These formats are supported by QuickTime, so the conversion process will be quicker than usual.
    One thing to note is that these conversions do cause VoltaicHD to be non-responsive. Don't worry - the conversion is happening. We'll make a change to run these exports in the background next year, thus re-enabling the progress indicator.
Version 1.6.2
  • Release Date: Oct 27, 2008
  • Fix for machines running 10.5.* on PowerPC boxes.

  • Release Date: Oct 22, 2008
  • Added support for Sanyo and JVC Everio files.
  • Fix for machines running 10.4.* on Intel boxes.
Version 1.6.0
  • Release Date: Oct 20, 2008
  • The main change in this release is the addition of Advanced Export options under the Preferences. This allows you to export from VoltaicHD into any format supported by QuickTime on your computer, rather than just AIC.
  • This is also the first release that we have made using the auto-update function, so registered users should receive this update automatically.
  • Finally, we are testing a new conversion method using FFmpeg. This works for some cameras and is a significant speed-up for one part of the conversion process.

  • Fix for machines running 10.4.* on Intel boxes.
