- QT-Flattener (length 841 032 bytes), 32-bit Windows utility to "flatten" QuickTime movies. We also propose a 32-bit console version (length 97 117 bytes) to run in a batch file. To get more information, visit our page on QuickTime files.
- Hybridator (length 104 465 bytes), utility to create/manage HFS images (32-bit version for Windows 95/98/NT only). Please note that our program Hybridator can only work from an existing HFS (Macintosh) medium, which is copied in whole. If you want to modify something in the Macintosh volume, or if you want to build a Macintosh (HFS) CD-ROM from scratch with files stored on MS-DOS or NTFS disks, see MacDisk and MacImage.
To get more information on this context, please visit our pages on Macintosh CD-ROMs. We also present on this site a series of walkthroughs showing several methods to make Macintosh (pure HFS and HFS/ISO hybrid) CD-ROMs.
- AspiTest, utility to check and display the version number of the four files composing the Aspi layer (functional equivalent of Adaptec AspiCheck). In addition, AspiTest checks the Registry and corrects somme keys which can prevent you to see all drives on your computer. Run this utility if you don't see your CD-ROM drive or your Zip drive in MacDisk. See also our Aspi FAQ on this matter. See also our page on AspiTest for more information.
- DCS-Edit (length 36 486 bytes), utility for editing the file names in a DCS fileset (32-bit only). DCS filesets are EPS files produced in Photoshop. Those files store in separate files the CMYK color separations. The master file can also store a clipping path. It may be useful to correct the links from the master file to the color seps. For more information, see our page on Photoshop.
