    October 5th, 2017

    Fixed:

    • Main Screen Details View: when there’s no order in box set movies they will be listed sorted on release year.
    • Add Movies from CLZ Core: adding a box set would not take the chosen format into account for the added movies.

      • The link screen was showing box set results as well but those can’t be linked.
      • Movies were not removed from the search queue after linking them.

    Movie Collector (Windows)

    v17.2: Automatically add multi-movie box-sets

    October 4th, 2017

    After many months of work from our content managers, our Core online movie database has now been enhanced with movie list information for thousands of multi-movie box sets.

    Today, Movie Collector 17.2 for Windows is the first to use this new Core data:
    Just use the enhanced Add from Core screen to find a box set, either by title or by barcode, and our Core “knows” which movies are in the box.

    See it in action:

    Find and add box sets by barcode

    Scan a box-set barcode and Core will show you which movies it contains. Click Add Box Set at the bottom right and all contained movies will be added to your database, automatically linked by a box set entry.

    Find and add box sets by title

    Alternatively, use the By Title tab and enable the new Box Set search to find box sets by their title.

    Note: the new Movies, TV Series and Box Sets checkboxes now let you search each of these three Core section separately OR combined.
    AND: The check boxes now also operate on the Search-As-You-Type suggestions, for even quicker searching and adding!

    New design of box set panel in templates, with movie list!

    A nice re-designed box set panel at the top of the movie details for each of the contained movies. Now showing the list of the contained movies, in the correct order, AND with clickable links to go straight to the other movies in the set!

    Report unrecognized box set barcodes

    Our Core online database now recognizes thousands of box sets by barcode, but of course, it is possible that you own one that is not recognized.

    In that case, the Unrecognized Barcode screen will popup, which now features a special tab for Box Sets. This new Box Set tab will let you select which movies are in the box, so that you can add it anyway.

    At the same time, the barcode and the movie list are sent to Core, to complete our database and to make sure that the next user who scans this barcode WILL automatically get the full info 🙂


    Movie Connect

    A Manage Pick Lists screen is now available in Connect!
    Finally, you can easily manage your pick lists for Artists, Authors, Series, Genres, Formats, etc… To edit your sort names, merge duplicate entries or remove entries.

    v17.0.5: Now compatible with macOS 10.13 “High Sierra”

    September 21st, 2017

    Next week, Apple will release the new macOS 10.13 “High Sierra”.
    If you are planning to update your Mac to this new OS, then we strongly recommend to update your Movie Collector software to today’s version 17.0.5!

    Movie Collector problems on High Sierra:
    We have been testing our software on beta versions of High Sierra for quite a while, to make sure we were ready for it’s release. We found that most of the software seems to be working as normal.

    Unfortunately, we found a big problem in the Preferences screen, it does not open at all anymore, making it impossible to make any changes to program settings.

    Luckily, our Mac developer Ronald was able to fix the Preferences screen to make it work on the new macOS. A fix was released today, in version 17.0.5.

    Fixed

    • Preferences screen didn’t load properly on macOS 10.13 “High Sierra”.
    • Upload Cover to CLZ Core: Images were not always uploaded properly even if they were within the 500KB file size limit.
    • Main Screen: Quick Search: Occasional crashes in the quick search when using the “Search-as-you-type” suggestions.
    • Sync with CLZ Cloud: Sometimes crashed during the upload of covers.

      • tab caption was truncated in System skin
    Movie Connect

    Improved search results, plus Search-As-You-Type suggestions

    September 7th, 2017

    A nice upgrade for the search feature today, in both Movie Connect and the free CLZ Cloud viewer for movie collections!

    We have completely replaced the search engine, making the searches much faster and giving you better, more focussed, less “fuzzy” search results.

    On top of that, we have now added our popular “Search-As-You-Type” mechanism to the search box for quick finding and selecting a particular movie in your database:

    • In the Quick Search box, just start typing the first few letters of the title you are looking for.
    • While typing, a drop-down list will appear, showing the first five matching movies, with small cover images.
      (for most movies, it only takes 2 or 3 letters before it shows up.)
    • Once you see the one you were looking for, use the up/down keys to select it, then hit Enter.
    • This will instantly take you the movie details page for that movie.

    See the Search-As-You-Type system in action:

    v17.1.8: New icons for the Add from CLZ Core screen and fixes

    August 24th, 2017

    New:

    • Add Movies from CLZ Core: the 4 “Add by” tabs now have icons.

    Fixed:

    • Add/Link Movie files: Link to Existing Movie:
      • Double clicking the column header in the movie selection screen would act as double clicking a movie and close the screen.
      • It wasn’t possible to resize the columns in the movie selection screen.
    • Edit Movie: Links tab: When editing a local link, the “previous” button didn’t work.
    • After adding a movie where a pick list item (such as an actor) was updated with new information, not all movies using that same actor were marked as “dirty” for syncing with CLZ Cloud.
    • Adding a movie could cause a cast member’s image URL to be overwritten even when update setting “cast/crew images” was “Leave as is” or “Update empty fields only”.

    New: Set a default view for friends

    June 22nd, 2017

    With all the sharing features we’re building we’ve now added a way for you to set a default view for your friends so they can browse your collection the way you want them to.

    To set a default view for your friends:
    Go to your CLZ Cloud / Connect page, login at the top right and set the columns, sorting and folder view you wish your friends see when they browse your collection.

    Once you’re happy with the setup, choose Settings from the “wrench” icon menu top right. Then click the blue button “Set current view as default view” and you’re done! Anyone viewing your collection for the first time will now get the view you’ve just set for them.
