(***************************) (* EXCERPT FROM THE MANUAL *) (***************************) 1. Introduction **************** I now that many video organizers already exist. Among these, I did not find one that would satisfy all features I wanted nor have the environment I demanded. So here's VideoMaxe, the final solution: VideoMaxe is a video database that satisfies all needs of a private video user (when I say all I mean all, so if you think that's false please write me your suggestion(s)). It has nearly NO `RESTRICTIONS' whatsoever [all data strings are dynamic, size of projects, mask lists, etc. are limited by your memory only, etc], HANDLES all CLASSIC PROBLEMS of a video database [record suggestions, spool information, any title compression, etc.], adds COMFORT [database facility, statistics, search routines, customization, etc.] and it has a COMFORTABLE OS 2.1+ ENVIRONMENT [localized, appl. icon, online help, etc.]. See `Features' below for more. 1.0. Features ============== (only some features that just come to my mind...) Environment: ~~~~~~~~~~~~ o Full OS 2.0/2.1 support (Localization, Asl, fonts, app. icon, ...) o Localized into English, Deutsch, Francais up to now. o Comfortable screen/window layout saving o Font-sensitive runtime gadget calculation o Comfortable installer script for installing, updating, ... o (Guide-)Documentation in english and german. o Online help. o Customization o ... Concepts: ~~~~~~~~~ o NO limitations whatsoever concerning amount of titles, rubrics, tapes (or whatever:+) except for your memory. o All strings dynamic since 04.30. o 6 different filetypes to save configs/data: project, mask lists, video recorder, printer preferences, layout preferences, VideoMaxe preferences o Ultimate answer to the questions: o Where to record a new title? o How to spool to title x (counter, rest time, used time...)? o If I have a video recorder without rest or used time display, how can I get exact counter position? o How to express different compression modes (i.e. long play)? o Data base facility: A freely editable mask entry list for each tape and title; that means that you can carry as much additionally information as you wish per tape or title. Provides a mask concept to handle that (save, load masks etc.). o Title length are given in hours:minutes:seconds to be able to cover rather short titles (e.g. music). o Comfortable statistics o Comfortable search routines (several modes, match lists, etc.) o Printing o ...
