Movie Collector (macOS)

v16.1.3: Improved Add Automatically Screen

October 19th, 2016


Improvements to Add Movies Automatically screen

  • Title searches: Search-As-You-Type suggestions drop-down now includes an extra entry
    “Show all results”, to take you directly to the “normal” title search results.

  • Title searches are now much faster, as the program does not download all edition listings for all movies anymore.
    It now downloads these “on demand”, only for the movie entries that you expand to see the edition list.

Fixed:

  • MacOS Sierra: When running the program in full screen mode popups were hidden below the program’s main screen.
  • The Edit screen sometimes crashed when trying to add a new feature under “Episodes & Features”
  • Add Movies Automatically:
    • Search As You Type: Auto select has been disabled as it was causing confusion.
    • Region filter didn’t work.

v16.1.1: New: “Search-As-You-Type” in Add Automatically screen

August 29th, 2016


New: “Search-As-You-Type” suggestions when adding movies by title

If you are adding most of your movies “By Title”, then this will be a huge time-saver.

Here’s how the new “Search-As-You-Type” feature works:

  1. In the Add Movies Automatically screen, just start typing the first letters of the title you want to add.
  2. While typing, a drop-down list will appear, showing the five most popular titles that match,
    including the release year and a small thumbnail image.
  3. For recent / popular movies, it usually takes only 2 or 3 letter before it shows up.
    For older or less popular movies, type a few more letters.
  4. Once you see your movie appear, use the arrow keys to select it, then hit Enter.
  5. Then under Search Results, that exact movie will be listed, automatically Previewed on the right.
  6. Click the Add Selected button to add it to your database.
