What's new in Movie Collector?

Movie Collector (Windows)

v17.1.7: Various tweaks

July 20th, 2017

  • Add Movies from Core: Search Results list is now loading/refreshing faster, especially for long lists.
  • New option for CLZ Barry: Auto-Connect. When enabled, the built-in Buddy for Barry automatically connects to the server when you start the program or open the Add screen.
  • The Expire Date of your Update Plan is now always visible in the lower right bottom of the main screen.
  • Fixed: Edit Movie, after updating from Core, switching to another tab could mess up the screen when the screen hadn’t finished updating yet

v17.1.6: Fixed an issue with hangs in the image browser dialog

June 26th, 2017

Fixed:

  • Image open dialogs could crash the program when used a lot and browsing through thousands of images.
Movie Collector (Windows)

v17.1.5: Fixed an issue with Search-As-You-Type in the Add Screen

June 6th, 2017

Fixed:

  • “Search as you type”: choosing a suggestion would do a normal title search with many results instead of only that movie.
  • Right click and paste a text in the search box wouldn’t enable the “Search CLZ Core” button.
Movie Collector (Windows)

v17.1.4: New features for the Add Movies screen and some fixes

June 1st, 2017

New in Add Movies from CLZ Core:

  • Adding By Barcode: removing entries from the queue is now even easier (and easier to find). When moving your mouse over a queue entry, a small delete button will appear over the cover image. Just click it to remove that entry.
  • Adding By Barcode: new “Add Selected” option in right click menu, for adding the selected movies in one go. (Ctrl-click to select multiple)
  • Adding By Title: the “expand” arrow (for expanding the edition list) is now easier to find, as it how highlights when moving your mouse over an entry.

Fixed:

  • Add Movies from CLZ Core: when sending a batch of barcodes from a barcode scanner, it sometimes did not add all barcodes to the queue.
  • Sync with CLZ Cloud: local front cover would sometimes be replaced with the online scaled version when down syncing.
Movie Collector (macOS)

v17.0.4: Fixed issue with jumping cursor in the Add Screen

May 23rd, 2017

Fixed:

  • Add Movies Automatically: the cursor in the search title box would sometimes jump to the end while changing the search term.
  • Upload cover to CLZ Core: sometimes images were not uploaded properly because of the 500K size restriction although they were smaller in size.

v17.1.1: A completely new Add Movies screen!

May 17th, 2017

Big changes today! The Add Movies Automatically screen is now called “Add Movies from CLZ Core” and has been completely re-designed and re-built from scratch, to make it both easier-to-use and easier-on-the-eye:

  • A simple two-panel design: Search Results on the left, Preview on the right.
  • Big blue buttons for the main actions, Searching and Adding, can’t miss ’em 🙂
  • The Search Results now show cover images and format icons.

v17.0.3: Added search-as-you-type to pick list fields

March 22nd, 2017

We’ve expanded the quick search box to now also allow “search-as-you-type” with suggestions for pick list fields.

How does it work?

In the quick search box top right of your screen you should see a “dropdown” button. Use this to select which field you wish to perform a search on. If “search-as-you-type” is available for that field, it will instantly work once you start typing in the box.

Example

You can now select the field “Actor” in the quick search box, start typing an actor name, and instantly see suggestions (based on what you typed) of actors you have in your database. Click on an actor to see all his/her movies!

Box set images

Box set images didn’t display correctly in the image strip popup. This has now been fixed, click a box set image and it should show correctly in the image strip popup now.

March 7th, 2017

Instantly find and select a particular movie in your local database:

  • While typing, a drop-down list will appear, showing the first five matching movies.
    (for most movies, it only takes 2 or 3 letters before it shows up.)
