Since i come from a Windows world, the first thing i tried is luck

Applications :: Creating New Movie Genre Thumbnails In ITunes 8

Sep 21, 2008

I saw a couple of other threads talking about this and thought we should have a thread where you can show off and share your own custom made Genre thumbnails. In case your not sure how to do it this is a good guide: [URL]. Basically you need to create a jpeg, put it in the right folder (iTunes>Contents>Resources) with the correct name and then adjust a tiny bit of information in the genre plist.

Its very simple and people who have no experience with this kind of stuff will be able to do it easily. Also if (like me) you are annoyed at the fact that some genres are missing you can add your own in the exact same way as in he link posted. Note in mine that Action & Adventure are now two separate genres and i've added Gangster, Kung Fu, Comic & Anime. Mine are all supposed to be the best films of that genre (ok maybe not Transformers ). Pic link now added, download!

Applications :: Public Atom Found In Movie When Itunes Importing?

Nov 26, 2007

What does it mean when it says that you can't play a movie because a public atom was found in the file. I find that i have a number of movies that are victim to this. and i know it's happening during the drag and drop import into iTunes because i have the original file and it plays fine from the desktop in quiktime.

OS X :: Some Movie Thumbnails Not Showing

Jul 27, 2010

I have my iTunes music etc. stored on my MBP, but movies are on an external HDD connected via Airport disk. When importing movies, I untick "Copy files to iTunes media folder when adding to library" and drag and drop them in - that way the location points to my external drive. However, I imported a number of movies yesterday (in the same way I always have done) and whenever I open iTunes, the artwork of the newest movies is missing and an exclamation mark is next to them. But when I click on it, the exclamation mark goes, the artwork reappears and the movie plays. Quit and reopen iTunes and it's vanished again.

Software :: IMovie And Importing Movie File Types?

Oct 12, 2001

Why in the world can't I import Quicktime files into iMovie? I'm guessing it has to do with frame rates or something. Or can I and am I just missing something?

If not, is there a file conversion tool anyone could recommend to convert Quicktime or other movie file types? Or do I have to somehow record out to a video to a deck and then import it back in to my iMovie?

I guess I expected iMovie to be something like Premiere. Would Final Cut allow me to do this?

Software :: Importing Movie Clips From Sony Camera Into IMovie 8?

Apr 6, 2009

After unsuccessfully trying to troubleshoot some problems for my dad from half way round the world I thought I had better ask for some help!

He has a Canon digital camera and a Sony he uses for underwater shots. He imports all of the pics and movies from both cameras into iPhoto, and the movies from both cameras play fine out of iPhoto.

Recently he has decided to start editing them in iMovie 8, and here comes the bit where I'm not 100% sure what he has been doing, but I'll try to explain as best I can. When he first opened iMovie it imported all of the movies out of iPhoto that he had taken with the Canon, but not those from the Sony. If he tries to import them manually then when he finds the file in Finder it is greyed out so he can't select it for import. The files have the extension .mpeg, which I got him to change to mp4 in case it was something as simple as that, but no luck.

Is this something to do with Sony using a proprietary MPEG encoding? I thought that if it playe din one iLife app it would play in any of them, but it seems not!

Apr 8, 2008

I recently installed Aperture 2.1 and love it until....

A large collection of pictures (jpgs) was imported and after 2 days a lot of thumbnails are missing in the library. The images are still there, I can click on the gray spot the image supposed to be and view the preview and master.

It very annoying! I am planning to import about 10.000 images soon and this problem must be solved before.

Applications :: Does IMovie 09 Use So Much RAM When Creating Thumbnails?

May 24, 2010

Seriously, it's absolutely ridiculous and brings my entire system to a crawl until I restart. Just look at how many page outs I have after iMovie is done making thumbnails of one seven minute clip:

My CPU usage during this process was around 10% so what gives? I have an early 2009 iMac with 4GB's of RAM.

Applications :: Using Adobe Bridge CS4 - Thumbnails Out Of Range?

Mar 29, 2009

I'm used to Bridge now, it's faster than iPhoto and I can use my own folder structure instead of the ridiculous "events". Places/Faces and the slideshow of iPhoto is great though.

Anyway, when I'm in "thumbnail view" in Bridge, the thumbnails exceed my screen width. So if I'm on the most right thumbnail on my screen, and I go one right, it goes about 3 more pictures to the right (which I can't see) before jumping to the next row (starting at the most left picture of course).

And I don't see any sliders: no horizontal and no vertical. I can scroll vertically though, but not horizontally.

Applications :: App For Snapshots / Thumbnails / Preview From Video?

Jan 3, 2010

I'm in need of an application that creates a single .jpg with multiple thumbnails within, giving you a preview of a video.

I have found a couple of apps that do this, such as Screen Grabber and QiPo. How ever, none of these are suitable;

Screen Grabber under 10.6 doesn't work with WMV files. The output image file is full of black frames.

QiPo is the best out of all of them, how ever it doesn't allow you to select how many thumbnails to have in the one preview image file (it's pre set to 18).

I have emailed the developer of Screen Grabber regarding a OS X 10.6 fix, but am yet to hear back from him, so in the mean time i am still trying to find a Mac app that can serve my needs.

Applications :: Why IPhoto Thumbnails Not Displayed Anymore

Apr 23, 2010

I just opened iPhoto and found that when I click on an "Album" (menu to the left), it just opens up with full size images. It used to display thumbnails and I'd need to click on the image to open it into full size. Is there some option that I inadvertently adjusted to cause this change?

Software :: Prevent Custom Icons From Generating Automatically?

Oct 21, 2008

I just upgraded from Tiger to Leopard 10.5.5. I realized that whenever I open the finder window in Leopard, all icons (especially documents and image files) automatically changes to custom icons with a miniature image of the contents.

in Tiger, the only time you got the custom icon is if you specifically generated one.

How do I turn off this feature? I just want to see generic icons for documents.

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Dscl: Generating A List Of All Users And Their GUID's?

Jun 14, 2012

I am having to manually re-add all the .ics files to each users shared calendar through iCal. I want to generate a list of users and their GUID's and I think dscl is the right tool. I don't have great bash skills nor can I get dscl to jump through hoops. I can get individual GUID's for a user using # dscl /LDAPv3/ -read /Search/Users/username but waht I would like to do is generate a list of all the users and their GUIDS ?how I can do that?

Applications :: IPhoto Creates Faces Thumbnails Files And Places In IPhoto Library / Data Folder

Jan 27, 2009

Thought I'd start this thread for people to discover/add any info they have on what iPhoto Faces is doing behind the scenes to help with troubleshooting, since Apple doesn't have any preferences for Faces in the iPhoto GUI. This is only for people who like to understand what is happening behind the scenes. Please note this is not for everyone and anytime you do anything to your iPhoto library you risk corruption and should have a backup copy. What I've noticed so far:

- iPhoto scans the library the first time it opens, and creates 2 faces .db files with the iPhoto Library:


- iPhoto creates Faces thumbnails files and places them in the iPhoto Library/Data folder along with the other thumbnails it creates................

Applications :: Importing VCF Into Entourage?

Oct 14, 2004

On my powermac G4 I have my contacts in Entourage. There are like a total of 1200 and I really don't need all of them on my new iBook so I've limited it to 200 of close contacts and saved them as vcf. Then I emailed myself the vcf file and try opening it on my new iBook which happily imports them into Address Book instead of Entourage (it also seemed to lose alot of the details, like categories).

I look for option in Entourage to import a VCF and it doesn't seem to have it. How do I import a VCF into Entourage? Or how can I these select contacts onto my laptop installation of Entourage?

However, ll is fine again when I put the HD card back into my computer.
