Applications :: VIDEO Date / Time Stamp Program For Mac?

Jun 1, 2009

I do video depositions which requires me to place the date and time on my video when the video was shot. Currently I have to ingest my video into a Windows computer and run it through a time stamping program called VTS DV timestamp [URL] This program is awesome other than the fact I have to use Windows. I would like to use nothing by my mac but alas, I have not been able to find a program that works. FCP time code generator does not work like I want it to.

OS X Technologies :: How To Get A List Of File Names In To A New Folder

Jun 27, 2012

if there is a way of having a list of image file names, searching for the images then putting them into a new folder? I'm guessing it can probably be done through mac scripting but I know nothing about scripting and genreally not great with technogy so ideally need step by step instructions!

Applications :: How To Change Date Stamp On Photos

Oct 12, 2009

My girlfriend and I have been sharing her Kodak camera for a while now. We use it to take family photos and such. I then use iPhoto to import the photos and break them up into events. Well, I let my girlfriend use the camera about 3 months ago and she changed the time stamp of the photos to 2008 instead of 2009 somehow. I sat down about a week ago to import all the photos we had since taken and was shocked when iPhoto put the new events way back with events from 2008. I then realized the time stamp was off and about had a fit. I quickly rectified the problem on the camera so this will no longer be an issue, but we have tons of great photos which are all incorrectly dated.

And call me a perfectionist, but its driving me nuts!! Now whenever I'm showing friends and family photos I have to scroll way back to 2008, and its just not fluid. I have tried quite a few things to change the date stamp. I cant seem to find any options in iPhoto, so I went into finder and opened the "Get Info" pain to see if I could manually change it, but no dice. I've googled for a week now and cant seem to find an answer. Does anyone know of some software that can handle this or a trick im overlooking? (Just to clarify, by date stamp, im not referring to the date image ingrained on the picture itself, but rather the date the camera assigns to the image file.)

OS X :: Sort By The Date A File Is Placed Into A Folder (Date Modified/Created Not Working)

Jun 3, 2010

I have a folder where I place an ever growing collection of my favorite songs. Before I switched to Mac, on Windows, when I wanted to revisit songs I most recently added to the folder, I would sort the songs by the Date Modified and it would order the files I placed in the folder by date.

In OSX, however, there must be a slightly different meaning to "Date Modified," as it does not quite sort my songs by the order they were added. It gets some of it right, but there's plenty of files that are out of order--tune "x", which I know was placed in the folder a week ago is actually listed further down the list with songs placed in the folder months ago.

Is there a way to have OSX sort files in order of the date it was placed in a folder? Neither "Date Modified" nor "Date Created" works 100% as I thought it would. Or is the OSX definition of Date Modified/Created slightly different than Windows?

OS X :: Unable To Set Time And Date / Time Date Settings Wrong

Sep 30, 2008

So I shut down my computer earlier today for the first time in weeks. I restarted it and then left for a few hours for dinner.

I come home and I look at the last time MobileMe Sync and Time Machine did their things. They say they did them at 7:45. I look at the clock on my cable box and on my iPhone, both say 6:45.

Weird that the MacBook's time is wrong. I go into Time Date settings. I see that when the MacBook does the "Auto locate where you are so that we can set the appropriate time zone, etc. the MacBook things I'm in Rexford, Idaho.

I haven't been to Idaho in about 25 years, and my MacBook has been sitting in Southern Kalifornia for the last one year since I bought it.I've tried to have the MacBook auto-locate again, and it keeps finding me us in Rexford, idaho.

Software :: Time And Date Gets Corrupted / Unable To Set Date And Time

May 8, 2009

I'm running OSX 10.5.8 on a G4 iBook. Somehow my Time & Date files got corrupted which prevented me from getting on to the internet. When I discovered the problem, I threw them away, thinking a restart would create them again. I was wrong.

Now my computer doesn't know what time or year it is, causing various problems. I don't have back-up 10.5 disks to extract the time & date package.Can I download a replacement anywhere?

Or can someone email the files to me? I don't know what they're called but, if you search time and date, there are only two (and please tell me what folders they're in too)

Starting yesterday, I cannot load Time & Date (either from System Prefs or from the menu bar). I get the beachball and I have to Force Quit System Prefs.

I tried Repairing Permissions and rebooting but it didn't help.I tried deleting .plist entries (as per a related thread on the Internet) and rebooting and that didn't work either.I tried logging off and logging in with another account and the problem is still there.I hope I can get some help because it's driving me nuts. I travel a lot and need to change my time zone. If you need a crash report from me, please tell me how to get it from Console bc I don't know where to look for it!

Applications :: Entourage 2008 Time Stamp After Wake From Sleep

Dec 29, 2009

One of my clients just purchased a Macbook Pro over the holidays (first time switcher from Windows PCs), and is using Entourage 2008 in place of Outlook 2007. (I used the excellent conversion utility from [URL] to move all his Outlook data over to Entourage.) So far, so good, except he ran into a bug I couldn't resolve for him. Apparently, if his laptop goes to sleep, when he wakes it back up, he receives a bunch of new emails into Entourage that all have the exact same date/time stamp on them (of the time the machine woke from sleep). Other than turning off sleep mode, or always making sure Entourage is closed down before the laptop goes to sleep, is there a fix for this issue?

OS X :: Linux/Windows File Transfers - File Names?

Aug 13, 2009

I've got to transfer 250GB ish of files from an OSX machine (HFS+) onto a Linux EXT3 machine and a Windows NTFS machine.

The problem is that I've got lots of odd named folders/files on the OSX machine that are not compatible on the linux/windows machines.

For example :

"OLDER THAN 12/08/09" becomes "ONM6U4~U"

How am I going to get these files over properly keeping the file/foldernames as intact as possible?

OS X :: Cannot Copy From One HD To Another - Same File Names

Dec 27, 2009

I'm having an issue copying from one external to another (I just recently got 1TB for x-mas). Both of the drives are western digitals, so they're very good. The problem I'm having is every time it gets to my iTunes music, I get this error:
You can't copy some of these items because their names are the same as other items on the destination volume, and that volume doesn't distinguish between upper - and lowercase letters in filenames.

OS X :: File Names Not Case-sensitive?

Oct 25, 2010

Every unix system that I've worked with has had case-sensitive file names. In other words, file name "foo" is different than "Foo" is different than "FOO" and so on. In the MAC OS X shell,

if I have a file name FOO, and I type "more foo", then the contents of FOO are displayed, instead of an error message saying "foo not found". It also means that I can't really create files "foo" and "FOO".

Is this something that Apple has implemented on top of unix? Is it possible to get around this, so that the names do indeed become case-sensitive? It doesn't seem like an inherent unix thing, because if I type "f <tab>", and the only file in the directory.

OS X :: Export File Names To Text?

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of an app (or an option I'm missing in finder) that might be able to export the names of files in a certain folder (and subfolders, if possible) to a text file. I know how to print a list using applescript, but I'd like to be able to have the list in an editable text file.

IMac PPC :: Directory Won't Keep File Names

Jun 25, 2012

The directory seems to have to rebuild each session. I open a folder and have to wait 8 seconds for the file to build then I can see the contents. After that, the folder opens immediately and will operate without problems UNTIL I shutdown. After restart, the folder stalls again as it builds the directory once more. My machine has multiple drives so I have triple boot and the other drives work fine so it is the system, not the computer itself.

OS X :: Desktop Folders/All Disappeared Along With All File Names

Jan 28, 2009

I restarted my macbook pro (10.5.6) last night after really slow internet speeds, and when it booted back up all my desktop folders disappeared. I can't even find a single file name anymore anywhere on the harddrive.

Apple support said they've seen the desktop directory glitch with the finder, but we could not reverse whatever happend and they suggested I spend $100 bucks on Disc Warrior.

How am I going to find about 1700 files????? My time machine drive stopped backing up two months ago, ggggrrrrrrr -right when I needed it eh?!

Does anyone have any ideas what I can try to get back the file names and folders?

I know the data is still on the drive, just with no allocations.

I've repaired all disc permissions 3 times-it keeps having to repair them everytime I reboot.Terry
