By Aaron Lee

einstein's legacy's ChapterWork is a macOS utility for working with chapter tracks and markers in digital movies. It provides a simple, but effective, graphic interface for creating, updating and internationalizing chapter tracks in your visual masterpieces.

ChapterWork is designed for professional and amateur video content creators who need to index their work and provide markers for future access. The built-in multi-language capabilities also make ChapterWork a solid tool for internationalizing your movie assets.

The app uses a single window graphical user interface makes text-based methods for managing chapter tracks a bit obsolete. ChapterWork can create multiple chapter tracks. These tracks can be manually or automatically enabled to handle the various playback circumstances, for example multiple languages or varying download speeds.

Whether you need one chapter marker or one thousand, ChapterWork doesn't impose any artificial limit on the number of markers in any track. You can use the app to create multiple chapter tracks, assigning a specific language to each. Playback tools, like QuickTime X, can use these associations to present local language chapter markers based on the user's current settings.

ChapterWork exports your movie using a background task. This allows you to work on other activities without waiting for movie processing to finish. Use the Activity Monitor to track your export's progress. Once you've created a new movie, ChapterWork allows you to share the completed output movie via e-mail or using popular internet services (such as Vimeo).

ChapterWork requires macOS 10.9 or higher. It's available for $19.99 from the Mac App Store.
