Product Announcements – Indie developer, Jendrik Bertram of Paderborn, Germany has released iFlicks 3, a major update of the popular iFlicks for macOS. iFlicks is the best and most complete video and metadata handling solution available for macOS. There is no easier way to add your video files to iTunes or Plex so you can watch them on your iOS devices or third-party media players.
iFlicks 3 is the third major release of iFlicks, which brings you a bunch of new features and improvements.
It is now possible to process videos containing HEVC content just as quick as H.264. Direct passthrough of HEVC tracks from mkv files to m4v now only takes seconds, just like it has always worked for H.264 tracks. This works just as quick for all your HD content, no matter if 4k or 1080p. Additionally, you can use iFlicks 3 to encode video tracks to HEVC. To make use of this feature you need at least macOS High Sierra, as it is the first version to natively support HEVC. On the newest generation of Macs, video encoding can even make use of the T2 Chip to perform encoding as fast as possible.
To provide even more flexibility to our power users, it is now also possible to create custom presets with different settings from the built-in ones. It is also possible to use these custom presets together with the immensely powerful rule system to create an even more customized workflow.
As an additional bonus iFlicks 3 has a tweaked interface incorporating countless improvements. The most notable ones being full Dark Mode support on macOS Mojave, as well as Touch Bar support for MacBook Pro.
