Earlier today, software company Roxio announced the it would be releasing Popcorn 3, its video conversion and disc burning software for the Mac at the end of the month.
According to Macworld News, the new version will provide a simplified interface, TiVoToGo burn support that will allow some TiVo-branded digital video recorders to transfer saved shows to their Mac via a user-selected format.
Other upcoming features are as follows:
-A new Media browser will allow the user to find and preview video files.
-A program known as Disc Cover RE will let users create and print labels and inserts for their DVDs.
-Users can now create bookmarks and preserve existing chapter markers in their files.
-Play and resume features have been added. This will allow Popcorn to pause a process in the middle of a conversion and help your Mac with other processor functions.
-Support for the Elgato Sytems Turbo.264 coprocessor, which can help speed up video conversions.
-A Quality Preview feature will let users see 15 seconds of video to gauge whether the quality and format they’ve selected are appropriate.
-Batch DVD and video playback conversion features have been added.
-New presets have been added for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, iPod, iPhone, Apple TV and BlackBerry.
-Support has been added for Dolby Pro Logic II and users can now create four-hour DVDs on a single 4.7 gigabyte DVD.
Roxio has stated that users of Toast 7 and 8 and Popcorn 1 and 2 will be able to directly unlock the upgrade version of Popcorn 3, which will be sold through the company’s web site for US$29.99.
Popcorn 3 will require a Mac running Mac OS X 10.4.10 or later, a G4, G5 or Intel-based processor, QuickTime 7.1.6 or later, 300 megabytes of hard drive space and up to 15 gigabytes of temporary free disk space available to convert videos.
