What Our Customers Say About Radium

It used to be that I found it more convenient to listen to net radio on my iPod,
but the ease of use that comes with Radium has changed that. Instead of having
to use multiple apps (like Tuner, AOL Radio, Soma FM’s app, etc.) on my iPod,
I can just use Radium on my laptop! Pretty awesome.

Ryan Waters

Every now and then you come across a gem of software that just reverberates
with coolness. The logo, the web site, the absolute simplicity and functionality.
Radium is a rare work of art.

Allin DuBuc

You are doing a great job with Radium, and am glad to see the feedback
and suggested streams being added as you can. I use radium everyday at
work and at home. I have started suggesting Radium to my Mac owning
friends now. Thank you for your diligence creating, updating, and supporting
the software. Keep up the good work!

Timothy Lovall

VideoPier HD
The missing link between your MPEG2 camcorder and your Mac.
Weekend ZOT Preview Below

Normally: $79.00

ZOT Price: $39.00

Click to MacZOT Try Now  

Why VideoPier?

VideoPier is the missing link between MPEG2 camcorders and your Mac.
It lets you visualize the clips on your camera that Quicktime would otherwise refuse to open. VideoPier lets you copy them to disk, and export them to any format for viewing (iPod, AppleTV, iPhone) or editing (iMovie 06/08).

Simplify your workflow

VideoPier will let you copy files from your camcorder to disk without any conversion. Your files will appear in date-based events for easy retrieval.

Built on solid foundations

VideoPier is built on top of the ffmpeg open-source component. This component provides very high quality video processing and support for a wide wide variety of formats.

Beauty and simplicity

  • detect your camcorder and let you visualize all clips.
  • copy files from your camcorder to your hard drive in their original format.
  • Import clips that have been already been copied to disk.
  • create events for the imported clips (events are organized by year like in iMovie 08).
  • visualize your clips, including their date.
  • multi-clip playback in the embedded player or in full screen.
  • export to any Quicktime format, to DV for iMovie 06, to the iPod/iPhone and Apple TV. In addition, VideoPier will keep track of the exported file so you can always retrieve it later.
  • export to iMovie 08 and 09
  • VideoPier comes in two flavours: a Standard version and a HD version (VideoPier HD) Today’s ZOT is the HD version.

    Workflows for both SD and HD video

    While VideoPier is mainly targeted at users that have a standard definition camcorder (recording on SD cards, DVD, HardDrive), VideoPier HD (Today’s ZOT!) adds the ability to capture from tape based HDV camcorders. VideoPier HD speaks with Final Cut and lets you export your HD clips in a format that is ready for editing.

    VideoPier and iMovie

    VideoPier is not a replacement for iMovie 06/08. Instead it offers the following benefits to iMovie users:

  • VideoPier lets you manage video files in their native format. VideoPier will save you time and disk space because you no longer need to convert all the videos from their original format into something iMovie understands. Instead, copy the files in their native format, visualize and organize them with VideoPier. When you need to use some of the files for your editing work, convert those files only.
  • if you are still using iMovie 06, then VideoPier lets you work with camcorders that iMovie simply won’t recognize.
  • if you are using iMovie 08 or 09, then VideoPier lets you move away from the imposed Apple Intermediate Codec when editing convert MPEG files in your desired format (H264 for example) for later editing in iMovie.
  • VideoPier and HDV

    VideoPier handles raw HDV material on your disk. Even if you don’t possess the Apple HDV Codec that ships with Final Cut Pro, VideoPier lets you visualize and convert these files. In addition, VideoPier HD supports capture from tape based HDV camcorders, complete with : scene detection, capture date extraction and custom file naming options.

    Supported camcorders(*)

    VideoPier has been tested with videos coming from the following camcorders:

    Panasonic SDR-S100, SDR-S150, SDR-H250, SDR-S7, SD-1000, HDC-SX5, HDC-SD5, HDC-HS9,
    JVC Everio models recording MPEG-2 on Hard drive: GZ-MG37U, …
    Toshiba GigaShot cameras, HD2 A40F
    Canon HG10, FS100, HF100, HF10 (requires VideoPier 1.2 or above for dual card support)…
    Sony models recording on Hard-drive or card as well as mini-DV based HDV
    camcorders(**). Models include: HDR SR7, HDR SR12, DCR-SR42, HDR-TG1, DCR-SR46, HDR-SR8E

    (*) This list is far from complete and we keep adding new ones as we get reports from our customers. If your camcorder does not appear to be supported, please contact us at: ‘at’
    (**) direct capture from HDV camcorders via Firewire is only supported in VideoPier HD.

    Bracketeer is a front-end GUI for Enfuse. Enfuse is a command-line opensource utility which uses multiple exposures of a scene (bracketed exposures) and merges them together to form a uniformly lit scene. It is similar to tonemapping with an HDR image except that no HDR image is ever created, and there is no ghosting. It works with any kind of bracketed image set, not just panoramic equirectangular images. Bracketeer can even auto-align hand-held shots! The results are almost always much better than anything that can be achieved with Photoshop’s HDR Tone Mapping:

    Here is a great example of what Bracketeer can do. These images were shot hand-held at -2EV, 0EV, and +2EV:

    Bracketeer was used to auto-align and enfuse the images to get this stunning result:

    How to Use It…

  • Simply Drag & Drop your image files into the Bracketeer Window (can be almost any file format: jpeg, tiff, png, psd, and even camera RAW files).
  • Once the source images are loaded simply click the “Enfuse It!” button to make the magic happen!
  • Bracketeer always outputs a lossless TIFF file.
  • Technical Requirements

    BRACKETEER 4.3.1 (The latest version) requires MAC OS 10.6 or later

    DOWNLOAD BRACKETEER 3.4 FOR MAC OS X (10.4 through 10.5).

    It is a Universal Binary application, so it runs native on either a PowerPC or Intel based Mac.
