At the recent Macworld show, Apple released several major new programs, some of which are of particular relevance to AlamDV users and filmmakers in general.
First there is iMovie3, which is a major upgrade from previous versions. iMovie3 is aimed at the low-budget end of the market, so we will be endeavouring to support it as much as is possible. As you can see, CSB-Digital are mentioned on the main iMovie3 page, where you can follow the link to the visual effects page and information about our iPlugins.
Further details on our iPlugins can be found at the official iPlugins website. We will continue to develop our iPlugins over the coming months.
Also released at the show was Final Cut Express, a cut-down version of Apple's acclaimed editing software. Priced at $299, it is clearly aimed at the low-budget filmmaker rather than the no-budget filmmaker. However, the opportunity to use a version of such a high quality product for a relatively cheap price should not be underestimated - Final Cut Pro 3 is, after all, the editing program used in many professional Hollywood productions, including such heavyweights as the Star Wars prequels. This is another product we'll be looking to support with our forthcoming programs.
In the future you will see a lot more of CSB-Digital on the Apple.com website, as all our new programs and the big AlamDV2.5 update will fully support Mac OS X and Quicktime 6.
A good start to a good year. Let's hope it continues - for you and us!
Schwar, Malone, Tim and Tarn.
p.s. If anybody wants to buy us a couple of 17" G4 laptops then we would be happy to offer you all our new software for at least half price.
