It seems to be. They got bought out and I guess are just abandoning it
I've sent a support ticket in the past and just recently, with no response. Very disappointing since it is a good product.
Is it a dead product?
Read other recent threads in the forums. Post a support ticket. It's clear there's no life on the other side. :)
It seems that a 1.9 is in the way.
No clear explanation if the new owner will continue to invest in this product or it will just predate its features/patents.
Hard decision for a new customer...
Doesn't seem to be, Can't be professional tool if it doesn't keep up with all the latest file formats etc.
I wouldn't care if they merged it into another tool, I just can't keep using a half baked piece of software.
They should have gone a blender path and saved it from being swallowed up.
Has anyone figured out any alternatives to Kyno? I've waiting a long time for them to say ANYTHING about this and they just haven't
You could have a look at Mync - not as fully featured as Kyno (in some ways) but a possible option
You might also have a look at Hedge/EditReady
I was mostly interested in metadata indexing and search capability of Kino.
Hedge seems to be a valid tool.
When choosing a tool for labeling video archives I'm mostly worried about software availability in the future. Inserting metadata on large archives is a time consuming activity and I'm afraid to discover after five year that my shiny tool does not exist anymore...
Yea I hear you man, it's a pain investing time and energy into proprietary systems that suddenly disappear !
Does any one have tried Iconik? I'm just curious
Hey, I boughht Kyno and I try to get an invoice for this product. No answer, no information since 2 weeks. Is this product dead?
