    I ran across this application the other day, and have moved over my Ant database. Would it be possible to support this? The backend is just a Firebird database. The developer is on his forums all the time, he is very open to bug fixes and new features, something that can't be said of Ant unfortunatly.

    Could someone code in support for this app?

    OK this program can export to XML. It can even import ant databases and everything. What format does the XML need to be in? Can you check it out or let me know what kind of testing I can do?

    Can you send me an XML export example (please with most of fields filled) as I can see how I can integer it with MyFilms.
    A new version 4.7 is coming soon, I'll see if I can add that new format in it.

    I make a small export template for PVD, that generate a basic AntMovies Xml file.

    You need to use the Plain text export plugin in PVD.

    Uncompress the file AntXml.ptm in tje \Plugins\Templates of the PVD install dir.

    Go in the preference ->plugins->plaintext and choose AntXml as the export template.

    This will generate a .XML and copy all images (cover) in the directory of your choice.

    The XMl is basic but AntMovie Accept it,so i think mymovies to.


    Sorry for my bad english :oops:
