If you have many DV tapes with unknown footage, then iDive can help!

I recently downloaded (and purchased) a great program called iDive. It allows you to log your DV tapes, and then perform powerful searchs based on notes, people, places, or events. The software will capture stills of the in/out points, as well as user-defined intervals. This helps you see what is on your tapes.

Here is an example procedure:
1. Create a new tape (name it exactly the same name on the physical DV tape).
2. Capture media - creates the stills.
3. Once capture is complete you can review every clip and assign people, places and events to the clip.
4. Once the information is logged, you can do a search for Joe, and all clips that have been marked with Joe will appear. You can refine the search for Joe at Edge Fest 2001 and the clips will appear.

This software helps me to know what is on each tape, and makes it very easy to search for clips of family members, friends, places, and events.

The software is brand new, so there are some improvements to be made, but I am happy with it right now. The software support is good, received an e-mail response within hours.

There is a introductory sale on right now (until mid-August) to save $20US.

You can visit here for more information.

I highly recommend this software.

Thanks for the info and link. I checked it out, downloaded, tried and bought it. Some nice features in this program, and it lets me see all the footage I have forgotten I've shot

There have been a couple quibbles, but the developer emailed me back and has been quite responsive (and friendly).
