Hi Again,

I've just put up AlamDV2 v2.0.4 for Macintosh (System 9.X) and PC (Windows 98 onwards).

Please read the tutorial on the forum to learn how to use all the functions of AlamDV2 - once you get used to it is far quicker and more powerful than AlamDV1.

AlamDV2 Tutorial

In additions to the changes below Macintosh users should look at the v2.0.3 Update Post on the forum as v2.0.3 was not released for the Macintosh and all those updates have been incorporated into v2.0.4.

In the couple of days since v2.0.3 we have made quite a few changes - highlights below:

1. Mac Loading Problems fixed.
2. Macintosh Memory Leak Fixed.
3. Plugin Install up to 250% faster.
4. Tool tips support added and many buttons now show tool tips.
5. Modify Menu now works with different options depending which timeline you are in.
6. RETURN now applies the effect and if pressed again moves back to the animation timeline.
7. Single Plugin Install works - press the space bar while launching AlamDV2.
8. Refresh Plugins now works better - press backspace while launching AlamDV2.
9. The Attributes window now has a title.
10. New Links to effects section of the web site added.
11. Warning displayed after changing AlamDV2 preferences.
12. Link to the temp QuickStart Tutorial Added.
13. Menu item added to show the effect path - same as pressing the top left key under the ESC (what key is that?) on the PC or tilde on the Mac. (might be a bit unpredictable)
14. MacOS X Icons added for people running AlamDV2 MacOSX - AlamDV2 is not MacOSX Native yet.
16. v2.0.4 Has been tested under MacOSX Classic mode and appears to function exactly as it does under MacOS 9.2.2.
17. Some interface bug fixes.

We look forward to your suggestions and if you find any bugs then please let us know on the forum.

Feel free to update the tutorial post I made on the forum and also ask questions there.

Have fun....

P.S. THERE ARE SOME BROKEN PLUGINS IN THE ALAMDV2 PLUGINS LIST. IF YOU HAVE THE FOLLOWING PLUGINS THEN PLEASE DELETE THEM AND WAIT FOR AN UPDATE WHICH WILL BE POSTED ON THE NEWS.

The bad plugins are lensflare2, hudtarget and redlightning. These will cause problems in AlamDV2 (any version).
