V6 – the next generation of media tools

The V6-Q window is the core of the application – right-click to open the context-sensitive menu or drag-and-drop media files into the V6-Q Media Pool to work with.  Drag-and-drop between windows is supported for most module view panels and text fields

Use the transport buttons at the bottom to play all of the clips in the Media Pool with MPV player in sequence – use the faster / slower buttons to speed or slow playback of audio files. Double-click any clip in the Media Pool to play that clip alone. Works with video or audio (even iTunes music)

Set the MPV player location and size in the Preferences

You can also save any collection of clips in the Media Pool to a playlist for future operations – Load and Save functions available via the right-click menu

Once your media clips have been imported, select a tool to work with from the buttons located at the bottom of the V6-Q interface, or from the right-click main menu

Current V6 utilities include:

  • Media Command Builder – for use with ffmpeg for media conversions (not included)
  • Pre-Edit Trimmer – select portions of video clips for conversion to save disc space and render time. Also creates subtitles (.srt format) and will output to standard EDL for use in other professional applications
  • File renaming utility – give your clips meaningful names using date / time stamps, simple numeric sequences or customized prefixes
  • Video Scopes – for quick and accurate checks of video clips
  • Comparison Tool – for comparing source and converted video clips with side-by-side views and dual color-picker for comparing RGB and HSL color values. Also generates SSIM and PSNG metrics for automatic comparisons
  • Exif Report Tool – generates detailed reports based on media clip Exif data and creates an html-based report view-able in any web browser
  • Audio and Surround Tool – trim audio files to specific length, create 5.1 surround channels from stereo and create AC3, DTS and WAV format 5.1 surround sound clips
  • Media Merge Tool – merge audio and video into a new video
  • Metadata and Album Art Tool – for creating mp3 or m4v audio with embedded metadata and artwork
  • Audio VU Meters – for monitoring audio playback with peak hold and adjustable threshold peak meters
  • NEW! MySQL Query Tool – provides a simplified interface for examining MySQL data captured during media conversion sessions or when building Exif Data Reports

V6 is also MySQL-enabled and can record all Exif Report data and conversions data for use with standard MySQL query tools
