Ant Movie Catalog helps you organize your movie collections. Luckily, you can have multiple databases to catalog your films separately. For each of the entries, it is possible to store various types of data, such as title, director, producer, writer, country, description, resolution, and many others. Moreover, if the available fields do not cover all the information you want to store, you can create personalized ones. Unluckily, the program does not have an attractive interface, which may also feel overcrowded at times. It is good, though, that it comes with excellent help documentation.
Information can be entered manually, but this can be too tedious, which is why it is great that, besides catalogs created with other versions, the tool allows importing files in other formats. In this respect, it is excellent news that it supports CSV and XLS, two widely used database formats. In addition, it can open catalogs created with BaseDVDivx, DivX Manager, Origons, and GCstar. Not only that, the tool lets browse online databases. This permits downloading movie information from the Internet that can be readily be imported into your catalog. Likewise, the program can scan a folder containing videos and create automatic entries for them.
One of the most outstanding characteristics of the tool is its search function, which becomes extremely helpful when the catalog includes many titles. Additionally, you can access statistics, including total and average movie length, video formats used, available subtitles and many others. Happily, the program can be used to track movie loans. Finally, the great news is that you can add extra functionality by writing your own scripts.
In general, Ant Movie Catalog is definitely helpful if you own a large collection of movies. It supports a wide array of database formats and can be customized to meet your exact needs. The product is also a free alternative to other similar commercial software.
