Sarcasm Mode: enabled: Well, that didn’t take long did it? I believe I submitted the fix the day I got back to New Zealand. That’d be the 9th of Sept. I just this morning got an email that iShowU HD is in review. Yup. Not accepted, nor rejected, but in review. Nine days. Can you tell I think that the MAS is a really horrible … Read More
Turns out I was a little hasty. The update isn’t as bad as I thought. It’s still pretty dumb. I think it’s an automated check that is failing. The name of the App in the MacAppStore is iShowU HD Pro. The failure is occurring because by default we save files to ~/Movies/iShowU HD (note the lack of “Pro” on the … Read More
Sigh. iShowU HD Pro has been rejected from the App Store. Yet again. Please forgive me ahead of time, but this whole Mac AppStore thing is really beginning to annoy me. This post has a high chance of turning into a rant. I’ll try not to tho. The rejection occurred a couple of weeks back, but I wrote up a … Read More

When played back the video flickers between two frames, yet … Read More

I’ve tested with multiple screens, HiDPI (on both), moving, static, double, half etc etc – simply loads and loads of combinations, and I think everything is now sweet. whew! A new version of iShow HD/HD Pro is being uploaded right now!
Opps! I was wrong. Which is a good thing in this case because it means you only have to wait for me to fix something, not Apple 🙂 Turns out that AVF under Mountain Lion isn’t quite as borked as I thought. In fact, it doesn’t appear borked at all. Instead it was a bunch of Lion conditional code + numerous errors on my … Read More
For those of you with Developer accounts at Apple, who also have Retina display machines, it appears that “it’s broken”. Down here at the bottom of the world I get all kinds of weird results when in HiDPI mode. Under Lion, a HiDPI display is “seen” by the app as much smaller (1/2 it’s original resolution). Thus a 2560×1600 30” panel shows … Read More
