Does Chromanator work in OS 10.3 and/or 10.3.3?

And I'd like to primarily use it to composite animation renders from a 3D app (Cinema 4D). Is this possible? Can I composite layers, shadows, etc?

Thanks in advance...

OS 10 is OSX right? If so, it's designed to work in that OS.

And about the compositing, you can composite up to 16 layers of footage into one composite. It's really easy to do.

Plus, you should be able to find all this and more info under the Chromanator Tab at the top of the page. smile

Chromanator automatically detects and utilises alpha channels, so if you export all your layers from Cinema4D with the required alpha information, compositing in Chromanator should prove really easy.

As Tim suggested, try out the demo if you want to give it a whir before you buy.

I've done some animations in 3ds max and would like to import them in Chromantor. How can I do it and the format as generated. In other words if I save the animation file as .tga alpha how can I export the into Chromantor?

Export from 3ds max as a tga image stream. You'll then be able to import your image stream into Chromanator.

Yeah, just save your image stream to a folder, then select that folder after clicking the 'Import Image Stream' option in Chromanator.
