22.1 Movie Contact Sheet

Wouldn't it be amazing if NeoFinder could show you what is actually in a movie file? Yes, NeoFinder generates one thumbnail of each movie file during cataloging, if you want it, but for a long movie, just a single frame is not too much.

Introducing the
NeoFinder Movie Contact Sheet!

Simply select a movie file, and either use the Movie Contact Sheet command in the
Special menu of NeoFinder, or the context menu for a file:

NeoFinder Movie Contact Sheet


Then you can set up a couple of options, like how many rows and columns you want in your contact sheet, and what format the resulting picture file should have. Also, you can Select weather or not you wish to see the time stamp in each frame, and if NeoFinder should automatically store the resulting contact sheet file in the same folder as the original movie file.

NeoFinder Video Contact Sheet Options

Then NeoFinder generates this beautiful contact sheet for you, along with all the interesting information you need in the header, like the used video and audio codecs:

102_hd_platforms_state_of_the_union


Wait! That is not all!

This of course also works if you select multiple movie files in NeoFinder! So you can quickly generate a lot of contact sheets at once. And here, the new option "
Save to movie file folder" is really useful, as it places the generated contact sheet file for each video in the same folder as the original video file.


And there is even more!

The amazing Services integration of NeoFinder gives you one more incredible feature. Simply select a movie file directly in the Finder, and in the Services menu, you also have the option to get a NeoFinder Movie Contact sheet for that file!



No need to catalog anything with NeoFinder first, you can have the contact sheet for any movie file!

Isn't that amazing?
