This may have been posted before, if so the sorry. I just found this site 2 days ago and signed up yesterday. I am possibly thinking about getting Alam, but if I am going to get Alamdv2 and then have to pay more for the upgrade I would rather just wait and buy the Alamdv3 full. So will Alamdv3 be more than the price right now(~$90)?

What is that thing about 19.99($ or Euros?) then?

Oh, and the only thing setting me back from wanting it even more is I don't own a DV camera. My brother does though, so I can often use it. I am not sure but once I am in Communication Systems(pre req to TV at my school) I may be able to use one of the cameras, so I wouldn't need my bro's.

This is what the site says:

Upgrade to AlamDV3 for FREE!

If you buy AlamDV2 now you are automatically eligible for a free upgrade to AlamDV3, when it is released (Dec 2003/Jan 2004) *. AlamDV3 will fully support Windows 2000/XP and Mac OS X and will improve codec and media compatibility (the MicrosoftDV codec is no longer problematic, for example).

AlamDV3 is a huge upgrade, redesigned entirely to provide a vastly more powerful interface and more versatile and professional effects - click here to read about some of its new features.

The most innovative special effects program is about to get even better - but there's no need to wait. AlamDV2 can be bought right now in the knowledge that you are making a future-proof purchase.

* Purchases made before January 1st 2003 qualify for a special £19.99 upgrade price.

So it means if you buy AlamDV2 after January 1st 2003, you get free upgrade. If you bought before that date, you have a 20 pound upgrade price.

Simple enough, no?
