We hope you all had a great New Year's Eve and that you're not feeling too bad today. This is going to be a fantastic year for CSB-Digital and AlamDV.
AlamDV2.5 will be coming out pretty soon which is a HUGE update with loads of new features as well as support for MacOSX, QuickTime 6 and Microsoft DV! Along with the AlamDV2 update we have two totally new programs coming on in the early months of 2003, all based on our new timeline design (pics will be posted soon).
Chromanator will be the first to surface next month. It is a sophisticated chroma key and compositing/animation tool while also giving you control over colours and luminosity. Chromanator will be launched first for Windows with the MacOSX version following soon after.
We will also be releasing DigiGrade in early March which should complete our transition to a more professional range. It gives you artistic power over the hue, brightness, saturation and many other settings for any part of your movie. You can select areas to change using a vector-based selection tool and tween them over time. It creates similar effects to the $300,000 program used to alter all the colours in Lord of the Rings and is great for doing day-for-night shots and turning summer footage into autumn. I have yet to see any raw footage that can't be improved by DigiGrade. This will be available for Windows and MacOSX platforms simultaneously and it should cost decidedly less than $300,000 .
To tie all this together we will be updating the website over the following weeks to incorporate all the new applications into the forum and unifying the website design, so please forgive any small glitches that might occur.
We hope you all have a happy 2003 and may all your wishes come true.
The CSB-Digital Team
