Mac capture software for film transfer equipment
and high-quality uncompressed HD capture.
NOTE: as of 1 January 2020, CaptureMate HD has been discontinued and no further updates or support will be provided. For alternative software that can work with WorkPrinter devices, the stop-motion capture mode of our SwiftCapture software can provide similar functionality (i.e. capture images to a movie file based on mouse clicks).
CaptureMate HD captures standard QuickTime Movie files; each time the mouse is clicked or the space bar is pressed, a frame is captured to the file. There is also an option to capture real-time video at full frame rate. CaptureMate HD is extremely robust and efficient, with very low latency between mouse clicks and frame captures. Video is captured uncompressed and in full resolution, for maximum quality.
CaptureMate HD is designed to work with the "WorkPrinter" film transfer equipment manufactured by MovieStuff, but it can be used with other film transfer devices, or for stop-motion animation. CaptureMate HD works with any Mac-compatible video input source. If using a WorkPrinter device, you will need a camera with at least 12x optical zoom. CaptureMate HD works with the following devices:
- Any Blackmagic device for analog, SDI or HDMI input
- Standard-definition FireWire DV camcorders
- "UVC" USB cameras
- "IIDC" FireWire cameras
- Built-in Apple iSight / Facetime cameras
- Any USB analog input device supported by the VideoGlide driver
