Note regarding video: After making the review, I was told that Digital Rebellion will be leaving the price static and continuing to add features in the future.
The installation is very, very simple. On the website of Digital Rebellion you can download a pref-pane plug-in. Once you’ve installed that all you have to do is flick a big ‘ON’ switch. Now download the Editmote app on your iPhone and launch it. The app will find any Mac that’s on the same Wi-Fi as your iPhone and has the pref-pane plug-in installed and set to on.
When you select the Mac you want to control you’ll be presented with a very simple, straight forward screen. You can hit play, rewind, fast forward, move one frame or jump to the beginning/end. But what sets this app apart from (the few) others out there is that you can add markers, refresh your output or go full screen with QuickTime, change the volume and add in- and out-points. They even added an ‘OK’ and ‘cancel’ button to dismiss any annoying pop-up you’d get, such as ‘Warning: Dropped frame during playback’.
Overall, Editmote is a very nice and easy to use app that I can’t wait to show off to my clients. It just works.
The only thing I miss are three buttons: Move back and forth one edit and play around edit. This is well worth $4.99 and I’d recommend it to every editor which a nice couch behind his set. For more information visit DigitalRebellion.com
