All three of the Shedworx AVCHD apps have been updated with a few key fixes and Mountain Lion support.

We have updated our core AVCHD engine with a couple of key updates.

50p/60p support

Over the past few months camera manufacturers have released new AVCHD variants in the 50p and 60p area.

50p (and 60p) are the highest level of HD recording available on consumer camcorders today. The 50p refers to the 50 full (progressive) frames per second that these cameras can record. The video from these cameras is the absolute best quality available today.

We have supported the initial 50p and 60p formats used by Panasonic since 2010 so this update covers all 50p and 60p recording formats from all AVCHD camera manufacturers.

LPCM audio support

LPCM is a pro-level audio format used in Pro video cameras.

Over the past year more and more Pro video cameras have moved to the AVCHD video format, away from vendor-specific video formats.

As they have moved into AVCHD, these Pro cameras have begun using LPCM audio, rather than the Dolby Digital 5.1 audio that consumer camcorders use.

LPCM has always been in the AVCHD spec, its just that nobody was using it.

This update to our AVCHD apps now supports LPCM audio in AVCHD videos.

Mountain Lion

We've also updated all the apps to be signed with the Shedworx Developer Certificate. This allows our apps to be installed and run on Mountain Lion under the default OSX security setting which prevents the execution of non-signed apps.

Voltaic, Revolver and Cosmos are now available for Download from shedworx.com or via Automatic Update from the applications themselves.

All three apps should be available via the Mac App Store within a couple of weeks. We submitted them today.
