What is Astro?
With Astro you can manage your digital assets, like pictures, images and movies. But also non image project files like for example Excel, Word files etc. can be archived. You can easily create a catalogue of a (part of a) hard disk.
Astro uses the search power of FileMaker 5.x or 6 to find all your catalogued files quickly. So you are able to find your files and go back to work more quickly.
Catalogue with one click of a button
Astro can catalogue your disks (CD-ROM's, Zips or hard disks) and can even create thumbnails from image files. The cataloging is very easy, you only have to say which disk you want to be indexed. Browsing through catalogued disks is also possible.
The Astro tool is valuable to any company wanting to easily and effectively manage a large archive of digital assets. Astro is a standalone runtime, so it does not require a license of FileMaker. Astro was created as a joint project by ECXS Information Systems BV and Troi Automatisering.

We like to hear what you can do with it!
Astro runs on Mac OS version 9.1 through Mac OS 9.2.2 or later or Mac OS X 10.1.5 or later. Astro is available as a stand-alone runtime version (no FileMaker license required) or for use with FileMaker 5 or later (FileMaker license required). For Thumbnail generation QuickTime version 5 or later needs to be installed. For some graphics format Astro can only generate thumbnails if they are embedded as Pict in the resource fork of the file. This is the case for for example Adobe Illustrator and Quark Express files.
