Movie Collector (Windows)

v19.0.4: Various stability fixes and 32-bit/64-bit option

December 19th, 2018

Stability

We have fixed various stability issues in the program to get rid of some more access violation errors that were happening for a couple of users. We also fixed a problem where “File > Open Database” didn’t refresh the main screen to show the opened file.

  • Got rid of some Access Violation errors
  • “File / Open database” could show an empty screen

32-bit and 64-bit option

We’ve found that when running our program in 64-bit mode, some 3rd party external devices will not work or talk to the program such as:

  • TWAIN image scanners
  • Some barcode scanners
  • Webcams (for barcode scanning)

If you run into issues where you your TWAIN image scanner, or your barcode scanner won’t connect or work, this is usually caused by the drivers of these devices which are not 64-bit compatible, and thus can’t talk to your Collectorz program.

We’re trying to look for a way to make them talk to the 64-bit version, but for now, to work around this, redownload the software from your CLZ Account page and during installation choose to install the 32-bit version!

DPI fix for Add Movies screen

The new “Add as Single Movie” or “Add [x] Movies” buttons for box sets weren’t scaling correctly on screens with high DPI settings. Fixed now!

New: quick search box in the Folder Panel!

Another useful addition to your software today, as we added a Quick Search box in your folder panel.

Especially useful for those long folder lists, e.g. when using Actor as the folder field. Just type a few letters of the actor’s name and the folder list will instantly “filter down” to the matching actors, while you type!

See it in action:

Next / Previous buttons in the Edit Movie screen

November 9th, 2018

A nice time-saving feature was added to your Movie Connect software today:

Next / Previous buttons in the Edit Movie screen

These buttons let you go through your movie list to make changes, while staying in the Edit Movie screen. Just use the Next or Previous button on the bottom left.

While doing so, the screen will keep you on the same tab and same field, making it super-easy to make changes to same field(s) for multiple movies.

v4.13.1: Redesigned app icon

November 6th, 2018

New: Redesigned app icon

We designed new icons that give new users a better indication of what the app actually does (as opposed to just a different color CLZ logo), but still obviously belong together, when shown together.

New: Add box sets as single entries instead of multiple movies

In July this year, we introduced the new Box Set adding feature in the Add Movies screen, where it automatically “knows” which movies are in the box, then creates separate entries in your database for all the movies contained, then “links” them using the Box Set field:

Most users love this new way of adding Box Sets. However, since the introduction we have learned that some users would like to add box sets as single entries.

So as of today, the “multiple movie entries” behaviour is now optional.

When adding a box set, found by title or barcode, you can now choose between:

  • Add box as 1 entry
  • Add box as [x] movies

Change your preferred way using the box set option button in the add screen:

Add box as 1 entry:

Add box as 3 movies:

Customize your software with four Skin choices!

October 29th, 2018

Do you like to customize your software to suit your needs or just your personal taste? Then we have big news for you today, as we have just introduced four “Skin” choices in your Movie Connect software:

  • Default (the standard look, as it was before, so dark toolbars, light content)
  • Dark (dark toolbars, dark content)
  • Light (light toolbars, light content)
  • Blue (shades of blue, with yellow highlights)

On top of that, we have given you 3 template style choices for the Movie Details area: Dark, Light and Blue. Either to match your Skin choice, or to mix to up, it’s up to you.

Both the Skin and Template selectors can be found in the Settings screen, under Customization.
