What's new in Movie Collector for macOS?

Movie Collector (macOS)

v16.0.1: Movie Collector V16: Quicksilver

February 17th, 2016

New view for the main screen: Card View

Next to List View, Images View and Cover Flow, we have added a Card View, a multi-column view with little info cards for each movie, showing the main movie details and a small cover thumbnail.


Delete Orphaned Images

Clean up your hard-disk by deleting all unused cover images and thumbnails.

  • This tool scans your configured Images Folder or database container to find all images
    that are not linked to your current database file.

  • Browse the list of found orphaned images in List or Images View.
    Check thoroughly to make sure these can all be deleted.

  • Finally, use the red “Delete Selected Images” button,
    and all “checked” images will be removed from your computer.

WARNING: Do NOT use this tool if you have multiple databases !!!!

Enhanced database Backup and Restore system

Keep multiple time-stamped backups and easily restore them.

  • The software now keeps multiple time-stamped database backups of data,
    saved inside your Backup folder as “[yourdatabasename].mvcp[timestamp] [# of items] Movies”.

  • Use the new “Backup Folder” option in Movie Collector / Preferences / Folders to set your Backup folder location.
  • Use the new “Number of Days” setting in Movie Collector / Preferences / Backup to select
    how many days of backups you want to keep. Older files are automatically pruned.

  • Use the Tools / Maintenance / Restore Database submenu to easily restore a backup.
    Restored backups are copied back inside your MVCP database file.

Upon conversion of the database, the software will move all old format backups from inside the database file to the Backup Folder that has been set in Movie Collector / Preferences / Folders, making the database file a lot smaller in size.
