CSB-Digital's birthday!


That's right, CSB is two years old. It's been a long and exciting path to follow these last twenty-four months, from the humble origins of the very first version of AlamDV to the current incarnation of the program and a thriving community of several thousand users from all over the world. The best is yet to come of course, with AlamDV3, DigiGrade and Chromanator all due out in the next few months. It looks like the next two years will be even more productive and rewarding for us all!
New look

The next few months will see some big changes, both for CSB-Digital and for the AlamDV community. We have been planning the forthcoming transition for many months and it is exciting to see the moment of truth finally approaching.

As a glimpse at the future, here are the official new logos for AlamDV3 and Chromanator:


As you all know Malone is remaking the whole website as it shifts into FXhome.com, so be prepared for many changes and a new look very soon.

The new applications are developing well, but there have been some unexpected delays. This is the first time we have made every part of our programs in-house and, while this gives us more flexibility, it also inevitably creates a lot more work. The release dates may be forced to slip a little but we are working 24/7 to make sure we will be as close to the deadline as possible.
Latest Chromanator info

As we draw ever nearer the release of Chromanator, our forthcoming compositing package, we will begin to reveal its features and power, beginning here with a look at a part of the new G6 engine that is driving our new programs.

Our new product range is designed to be far more powerful than anything we have attempted before and, as such, they need a stronger and more sophisticated infrastructure. This is in the form of our G6 engine, thus named simply because it is the sixth generation of the technology that began with AlamDV1. Of course, the G6 engine bears no resemblance to what we were working with two years ago, as the G6 is no mere update – it is entirely new, written from the ground up with Chromanator, DigiGrade and AlamDV3 specifically in mind.

One aspect of the G6 is improved file support, with all our upcoming programs fully supporting Quicktime6 and DirectShow. This means that the very latest video software from Apple and some of the more esoteric PC codecs will now work smoothly – including the infamous MicrosoftDV codec, which has plagued us in the past with incompatibility problems. The notorious 'little blue box' on the workspace will very much be a thing of the past. You will even have the opportunity of working with on-the-fly deinterlacing when needed.

We will be gradually revealing more Chromanator details over the next couple of weeks, including information on the new rendering system and the special three-way interface.

Hey people, as you can see we are working really hard to make the new programs something really special. The whole new look to the site and the programs (well everything we do really) should be really refreshing.

At last AlamDV will have a logo - something its been lacking for two years. We also have a new CSB-Digital logo which is really simple and effective. We'll make sure we get more information and graphics up soon.

Just for people who are interested the QuickTime 6 support means that DV files will no longer be displayed in low quality mode - we now get the highest quality possible from QuickTime DV codecs biggrin . We can also deinterlace and split-fields on-the-fly in near real time on fast machines in both QuickTime and DirectShow. Tim has done a great job so far and we'll be looking to support other standards in the future.

So basically the quality, speed and support is far better than ever before.

Just EIGHT more years until you reach your 10th anniversary, lol.

Tarn Says: We will be gradually revealing more Chromanator details over the next couple of weeks, including information on the new rendering system and the special three-way interface.
does this mean that the release date for Chromanator has changed? the most recent that i know of is next monday. this would mean that you are releasing the information after you have released the program. also, is there a demo video appearing any time soon, it was promised in the next few weeks, and that was 7 weeks ago. Is CSB falling behind. please tell us more. what has changed.

i remember that the computer melted with the original preview, but this was promised to not hold anything up. cry please share the news with us, the average user. cry

CSB is entitled to be late, they've been working their butts off to get this stuff done. It doesn't mean that they're falling apart or that they're not holding up to us "average users." It just means they might be behind a bit and they'll try to work as quickly as possible.

Happy birthday CSB!

The logos are seen out of context - once you see them in place (on the new website or the splash screen) they'll look as punchy as they should be.

The Chromanator release date is still set at the 28th but it will slip a bit. We have had a huge amount to do on all sides.

Malone is creating a web site that can handle more that 10 times the people it does at the moment with an upgraded cinema, forum, and community. The current AlamDV2 website took him many months, and this one is far more intricate.

Tim has been learning DirectShow - something you wouldn't even wish on your worst enemy. Its complicated but he has got there while also learning QuickTime 6 - quite a job!

I have been working on the new interface and trying to make sure that the new G6 engine is free of bugs every step of the way. Every element of this interface is far more complicated and functional that AlamDV2 and AlamDV2 took over half a year to code.

Tarn is trying to make manuals for applications he doesn't actually have which, as you can imagine, is near impossible.

It is difficult when there are 4 of us doing the work of 10 people, but we will get there and the quality of the product you get at the end will be so much higher than anything we have ever done before. Before we relied on third parties and we had to make our apps work anyway we could, now we are in control and we are making apps that work exactly how we think they should.

It is a brave new world...

Thanks for the support and the comments guys. All taken on-board, as always.

Apologies for the constant "more information soon" promises. Problem is, to take the time to do a cool preview thing would mean taking our efforts away from the programs themselves. So it's a tricky balance between promoting the things and actually creating them!

Nevertheless, I will endeavour to get something funky for y'all ASAP. I'll make it Primary Mission Number One. smile

Logos are already sorted so they work from desktop icon size to full printed versions. Thanks for all the support guys. It would have helped if I had given Tarn the right images...think he has updated them now...

Basically, until fairly recently all AVIs played through a system called Video for Windows or VfW which is supported in AlamDV2. Microsoft released DirectShow to revamp this system and give it many more functions and in doing so created the Microsoft DV codec. Nearly all codecs are backwards compatible with VfW appart from Microsoft DV which only works under DirectShow and is therefore only supported in AlamDV2 if you download another DV codec that support VfW (like the Mainconcept codec). Moving to DirectShow means that all the main video editing codecs should work fine under our future programs.

I apologize if i sounded a little like the team at CSB was coming apart, or like i was insulting anyone. i have just finished a stressful term at college, and have gotten over a cold all in the same weekend.

i also was not appreciative of the manner that this change of releases date came about, and the way in which it has been handled. 7 weeks ago the post appeared that introduced the release dates, and also said that a demo video would appear soon, however the video didn't appear, and nothing more has been said about the program, until this post when the date was put back by at least a week.

i understand that you must work on the program, but you could release a demo that can be used to make the video for gold users. that way you can finish the program, and we can see how the work is going.

again i am sorry if i was snotty in the previous post, or even if this one seems offensive, i am probably still wound up with what hasn't been a relaxing holiday yet. wink wish me luck and relaxing times for the rest of the two weeks. and a very happy birthday CSB.

biggrin I hate to give you bad news Manic_Man but ......

There is a hint in Tarns original post about the release date.

The release dates may be forced to slip a little but we are working 24/7 to make sure we will be as close to the deadline as possible.
The hint is the 24/7 part. Some of you may think that means 24 hours a day 7 days a week but if you have ever had anything to do with software releases you will know that more than likely means 24th July! biggrin biggrin biggrin

Before you fly off the handle I am joking .... right Tarn??? eek

Happy Anniversary Guys!!

It's been a very interesting 2 years!
Here's to many, many more... cheers wink

We all apreciate how hard y'all bin workin'... at the end of the day, it's really difficult to be absolutely on time with anything that deals with computers lol...
I mean, how many of us film makers around here ever finish projects on the deadline???!!!

You'd think these people would understand the situation more than most!

Of course we are gagging to feast our eyes on everything you are developing, including the new site.

You have had an incredible amount of work on over the last few months - we just have to sit tight a little while longer...

oops - almost forgot to ask - I use canopus software with canopus dv codec - it semed to work ok in alam2 - so i guess it will still be supported in 3? (what with Microspawn having the new codecs and all)
