Our applications are ready for OS X El Capitan

After 4 weeks of tweaking, bug fixing and developing workarounds, all our applications, including

  • iStopMotion 3
  • BoinxTV
  • FotoMagico 4

are ready for OS X El Capitan.

The latest updates are available on our website and trough integrated application update. Of course they will hit the Mac AppStore within the next few days, so that also our AppStore customers can profit of the enhancements that come with OS X El Capitan.

We would like to use the chance and thank you for your support and patience.

Every major update is a huge challenge for us and our developers and sometimes, last time changes, make it hard to be prepared for every issue. This time it took a little bit longer to get most bugs under control but today with the release of BoinxTV 1.9.13 the last application succeeded its transition.

But as you might know, after the update is just right before the next one. We found a few bugs which we couldn't fix with this update, so please stay tuned for further updates.

If you would like be informed right in time about updates or other company related things, just follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

OS X El Capitan and Boinx Software

Since Apple released its latest operating system OS X El Capitan, yesterday, most of you want to upgrade as soon as possible. Of course working with the latest built of an operating system is always great, but major upgrades mostly also cause problems with third party software.

So please check the list of supported Boinx Software applications below, before you upgrade to OS X El Capitan.


FotoMagico 4.6.3 works without know issues on OS X El Capitan.

Mouseposé 3

Mouseposé 3.2.7 works flawless on OS X El Capitan.

iStopMotion 3.6

iStopMotion 3 is not supported on OS X El Capitan yet. Cameras and Images are displayed incorrect. We are working on a fix, but major video capture classes are affected but this issue.


BoinxTV 1.9.12 is not supported on OS X El Capitan yet. At the moment it is not possible to capture video sources or playback movies. Please do not upgrade now, as BoinxTV cannot be used productively with OS X El Capitan installed.

mimoLive Beta and FotoMagico 5 Beta

Our engineering team works unbelievable hard to make mimoLive (successor of BoinxTV) and FotoMagico 5 even more awesome than its predecessors. If you would like to see and try out the next generation of our applications, simply sign up for their beta tests.

Both applications are ready for OS X El Capitan and can be used with minor bugs. But please keep in mind, both applications are still beta versions and should not be used for productive purposes.

About mimoLive

After 7 years of incremental improvements delivered via more than 30 free updates, BoinxTV 2 is a big leap. So big, in fact, that it also gets a new name:

mimoLive – The Multi-In, Multi-Out Live Video Engine

From now on, all betas will carry the new name. We’ll also be gradually switching to the name „mimoLive“ in the marketing and surrounding infrastructure, like the website, the forums, the manual and Boinx Connect.

mimoLive TV

For our customers, we want to make the change from BoinxTV to mimoLive as smoothly as possible. So we provide periodically episodes on how to setup and use mimoLive to record and stream events, lectures, TV shows and much more.

Bastian Wölfle, the product manager of mimoLive himself, will show you in short tutorials how to get used to and work with mimoLive.

Enjoy the first episode of mimoLive TV above or on our youtube channel.

Vertical Video is the next big thing? - we are ready!

Almost all video has been traditionally shot with a horizontal perspective. Movies, TV shows, YouTube videos, and even the dimensions of our screens are horizontal. And while smartphones make it easy to shoot vertical video, the practice itself has long been blasted as amateurish.

But the popularity of social apps and live-streaming video apps have forced a new look at vertical video. Even the best selling German Newspaper the Bild Zeitung is recording their new online news show Bild Daily vertical instead of horizontal.

They are recording vertical video, because it is fun and easy. In addition to that smartphone users tend to view videos, including ads, in the upright position, as they don’t need to rotate their phones for watching the video in fullscreen.

If you look on the number of videos watched online most of them are currently watched on desktop computers. But smartphones and tablets will surpass the number of videos watched on desktops by mid of 2016.

In fact, also Snapchat says ads shot vertically outperform horizontal ads by a long shot, according to Adweek. Users are nine times more likely to watch a vertical ad to the end versus a horizontal ad.

Start recording vertical video

It is really easy to record vertical video, since nearly everyone has a smartphone with a camera these days. But most video editing software is limited to an horizontal, perspective aspect ratio.

FotoMagico 4, iStopMotion as well as the current Beta of BoinxTV 2 are ready to face the challenge of vertical video out of the box.

This will allow you to create beautiful vertical slideshows, stop motion animations or advertisements for your customers, friends and family or just shot a whole TV or news show with ease.

All you need to do:

  • Start the application
  • Create a new document
  • Enter a custom aspect ratio with vertical video dimensions
  • Be creative
