Movie Connections

With Movienizer you can sort and search your movies in many different ways. The movie organizer can also maintain certain types of movie connections. First of all, a movie can belong to some movie series. You can enter the name of the series and the movie's number in the series on the "General" tab of the "Edit info" window:

Movie series

When you add movies and TV series into the program, Movienzier downloads information about the movie / TV series from the internet. Depending on the source that it uses and on your download settings, movie connections can also be downloaded. You can choose whether to download movie connections on the "Download options" tab of the settings window:

Download movie connections

This option allows Movienizer to download and save information about movie connections, but whether such information is really downloaded depends on the script you use. Some online movie databases do not provide the information, in which case nothing is downloaded.

To see connections for some movie, open its page and click the "Connection" item on the navigation bar of the page:

Movie connections

All movies in the list are represented as hyperlinks, you can click on each of them to check additional details. Movies from your collection have a special icon.

You can add new connections manually or remove existing ones on the "Connections" tab of the "Edit info" window for the movie:

Edit movie connections

To add a movie, click the green plus button next to the corresponding list and select a movie from the dropdown list:

Add a new movie connection

If the required movie is not on the list, you can enter its title manually.

To remove a movie connection, select a movie from the list and click the yellow minus button.

The movie series connections ("Follows" and "Followed by") are not available on this tab. They are using the logic of the "Movie series" field that you see on the "General" tab of the "Edit info" window (the first screenshot in this article). To remove this sort of connections, you need to clear the "Movie series" field for the corresponding movies. To add such connection, open the page of the movie that you want to add and enter the correct "movie series" and "number in the series" values. If the movie does not exist in your database, use the "Add movie" dialog to add it first. You do not need to download information about it or add it to your collection when creating such entry.
