From 3ivx: DiVA is a powerful MPEG-1/MPEG-2 video converter for Mac OS X 10.2 or later. It uses QuickTime, MPEG, MOV, SMP, AltiVec, YUV, Cocoa, Quartz, XML and other amazingly great acronyms and buzzwords. It's also fast, high quality, and integrates extremely well with 3ivx D4 4.5, allowing it to perform automated 2-pass encoding with 3ivx.

DiVA is fast.
Really fast. DiVA takes huge advantage of G4 and G5 processors. DiVA's integrated multithreading allows it to scale on multi-processor machines, too. On a PowerMac G5 (Dual 2.0 GHz), DiVA with 3ivx D4 4.5 is over twice as fast as QuickTime Pro with Apple's MPEG-4 video codec. DiVA is also 40% faster than ffmpeg, a Unix-based video encoding tool designed for speed.

DiVA has a world-class cropping interface.
Proper cropping and scaling are essential to good video encoding. DiVA makes it easy, calculating scaling values for your inputs aspect ratio, warning you when you are using a dimension that is not divisible by 8 (inefficient in MPEG video), and even automatically cropping off all black "letterboxing" pixels.

DiVA lets you save your encode configurations.
In video compression, one size does not fit all. Rather than re-configure for each and every encode, DiVA lets you save your encode settings into a configuration file. Keep a collection of these, and just open them up when you need them.

DiVA is fun!
If you find encoding video cool, DiVA is for you. What other program will give you this many fun statistics? Where else can you find a dragable, resizable, colorful crop box? Plus, DiVA is so fast that you'll be able to encode more video in less time, so you can do more of...other stuff you might love doing.

1st DL: version 1.0 beta 5 released 04-15-2003

3ivxCrush was their next-generation encoder for Panther 10.3.9 and higher.

Compatibility
Architecture: PPC PPC (Carbonized)
DiVA needs the D4 4.5 3ivx video plug-in for OS X 10.2 and higher, which is no longer available online. The latest 3ivx plug-in can be downloaded from the 3ivx website as a 30-day trial but requires Leopard Mac OS 10.5.8.
