With the availability of digital cinema cameras, a tool like this is indispensable. It works as advertised and presents a simple yet elegant graphic user interface. My only wish is that in they offer Compressed CinemaDNG (raw) for the Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera (BMPCC) as one of the selectable codecs. The BMPCC is rapidly becoming a go to camera for indie filmmakers and it has a vibrant community pushing quality work on it. Great app!
Great new look
Very useful tool
The latest version has a much improved
Suggestion: would like the storage space to always be in Bytes regardless
Of data rate units
Great datacalc app!!!
I really love this app. For anyone in the tech side of the content ecosystem, this is an ideal app in figuring out file size and runtime when dealing with various codecs, formats, file size selections, etc.
If only it had a bitrate option to calculate also, that would make it a 5-star!!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
