DropDV is a Mac OS X droplet which converts MPEG video into DV video streams. After conversion, your video can be edited with iMovie, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro, or any other DV video editing system.

DropDV converts MPEG video files from Still Cameras, MPEG-based video cameras, Tivo and ReplayTV MPEG files, as well as any other MPEG file you may have from other sources.

DropDV converts MPEG into DV of the highest possible quality, much better than QuickTime Pro or even Final Cut Pro. DropDV uses a high quality bicubic video scaling algorithm to give you a DV video image that is as sharp as possible given the source material.

DropDV will accept MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 streams. DropDV will handle both MPEG program streams and transport streams. DropDV converts frame rates according to the following rules:

Here are some key features of "DropDV":
Multiprocessor enabled
Rock solid audio/video synchronization
A Simple, drag-and-drop interface
Creates projects compatible with iMovie
Uses high quality bicubic scaling for the best video image
Full YUV pipeline (no conversions to RGB)
Supports both NTSC and PAL output
Doesn't lose the audio track
Splits output DV files so they are less than 2Gb (optional)
Will convert VCD, DVD and any other MPEG file into DV format
DropDV 2 also includes speedups, bug fixes, and many enhancements

The trial version of DropDV has exactly the same functionality as the registered version of DropDV. The only difference is that the registered will not imprint the "Please Register" watermark onto the output DV video streams.
