The "Cannot Decode" error

If you’ve tried exporting video in Focus (or any of the other Tesla video exporters on macOS), you've probably run into videos that cannot be decoded. In the past, I’ve advised people to use Focus’s video scrubber to edit out the corrupt frames. This is a tedious workaround. Version 2.5 of Focus solves the issue in two ways.

Product and Website Updates

Focus has been updated to version 2.2 today. This is primarily a feature update, adding some user requests as well as a few cosmetic improvements and bug fixes. The full release notes are here. The documentation for Focus has been updated substantially as well, so please check it out if you're wondering what Focus can do.

Focus for iOS

I'm happy today to announce the arrival of Focus for iOS. Focus for iOS brings many of the great features from the macOS version to iOS. Simply plug in your storage device (using the appropriate adapter), and you're now able to browse, flag, delete, and export videos right on your iPhone or iPad.

Big Focus update, Memoir price cut

I have two big changes to share with everyone today that I felt warranted a blog post.

First, the latest release of Focus is out, and it has a big feature that I think everyone is really going to like - in-app editing of videos for export. I've tried to make clipping videos as easy as possible without cluttering the interface or slowing Focus down.
