Macintosh Software List (IN PROGRESS, INCOMPLETE)

Postby Athena » Wed Apr 21, 2010 8:21 pm

Right now this is mostly a copy of the Macintosh sections from TaranT's Software List, however, I will be going through and checking to make sure links are still valid, the software is still supported on MacOS X, and adding new programs that have been developed that are not included. Some of the programs I use every day are not TaranT's list.

all the more reason to boycott apple. Also, Ipods suck. I'm not attempting to flame by the way, I know that Paint.net would be an unlikely candidate, but sony not porting their editing suites I feel is a real shame.

Since this is a thread about editing on Macs, which are made by Apple, it seems that boycotting Apple would be counterproductive.

And am I the only one that uses Garageband/iTunes for my audio conversion needs? :sweat:

Fortunately, everyone else here has higher standards and uses a mac. EAC and fb2k can both be run in OSX albeit not natively. If you hate macs, why are you still here. From what I've read of your posts elsewhere, you seem to hate anything good and are stuck in a world of vague ambiguousness when it comes to relaying anything relevant or the least bit informative. You generally have nothing to contribute to a conversation and almost everything you have said is either misleading or downright incorrect. Stop playing this bullshit game already and prove yourself at least worth paying attention to in a small number of your posts.

Actually relevant to this thread: AutoDesk Cleaner is an excellent NLE.

No. Handbrake is for quick and dirty compression for portable media for people who don't care about preprocessing.

It is not an acceptable ripping software compared to MacTheRipper. MacTheRipper's odd giftware scenario is the only issue it has.

Mac the Ripper is essentially dead & buried. The Intel version has been an alpha and closed off to forum donators only for years now. Here's what we're left with:
http://thelittleappfactory.com/ripit/ (payware, $24.95)
http://www.macdvdripperpro.com/ (payware, $9.95)
http://www.metakine.com/products/fairmount/ (free, uses VLC's libdvdcss to rip)

Here's a neat audio editor that can actually do lossless editing ops on mp3 and aac, haven't seen anything else like it:
http://www.rogueamoeba.com/fission/ (32 bux)

For encoding, since x264 cli has libavcodec input and presets now, you really only need
$ port install ffmpeg-devel x264
Macports has a history of glacial package updates, but it's still better than the annual-at-best release cycle you get with Handbrake.

Yeah, I've used that before for recording Skype. But it lacks the awesome gimmick of lossless mp3/aac editing that Fission has, that's the part I've never seen in any other audio editor.
