MovieIndex generates a contact sheet from all video types.

▶ Handles every sort of videos, whatever QuickTime compliant (like .mov or ProRes, .m4v, …) or all others exotic videos (mts, mkv, avi, …ogv, webm).
▶ New in version 2.00: now, the application also supports modern video formats like the h265.
▶ Always displayed images at the good ratio (not badly stretched!)
▶ No comb's effect into images.
▶ Two quality modes, depending on the purpose of your cataloged video: to store onto disk or to print.
▶ And some classical customizable options: choose the size of images, their number, page background color, which captions you want as accompaniments and their size, …
▶ Optional feature: Can automatically adjust the number of thumbnails of your "contact sheet" according to the duration of your video (ie: what is the point of generating 64 thumbnails for a 10-second movie? ;-))
▶ Optional feature: Added an 'derush' option: to extract a thumbnail every (xx) seconds (…useful to identify your rushes before editing).
▶ Optional feature: Can generate an additional thumbnail for your Multimedia Hard Disk. If your device can display a thumbnail of your videos (ie: WD TV Live), so create it with your index page.
▶ The app runs in modern 64bit mode, is optimized for newest OS (from old OS 10.7 to latest one) and for Retina display.

MovieIndex, …because a "cataloged video" is far more convenient to consult than the video itself.

Index size limitation

App works okay. My iMac 27” iMac can display 2560 x 1440 but the maximum contact sheet display width is 1200. I can fill the screen, but the thumbnails will be upscaled. I could print to PDF for higher resolution, but that pdf file would about 10 times the size of the jpg.
