Being an intelligent and alert bunch, it certainly didn't escape your notice when FXhome.com didn't go live earlier this week. We apologise for the continuing delays, and ask for your patience. The dates given previously were our best guesses and, as is sometimes the case with guesses, we were a little wide of the mark.

The whole team is working 24/7 to get the work done as quickly as possible, and we promise that FXhome.com and Chromanator are not far away. The new website and products are huge steps beyond anything we have attempted before and, as such, we want to make sure we take the time to get it right.

We'll keep you informed with the latest developments as the information becomes available. Rest assured, the day is not too far off when you will arrive here to find an entirely new website and community in the form of FXhome.com - we're sure you'll all really like the work that Malone has been doing.

These are the final and most difficult stages, and we hope you do not mind waiting just a little longer. Great things are coming.
Further Information

Some people may not know about our upcoming products, so here's a quick run-down on the main details:

FXhome.com - This will be the main website for the new products. You will be able to find all the information you could ever want, download relevant material and get the best technical support in the world. There will also be the same community you all know and love, with an enhanced Cinema and an all-new look.

Chromanator - The first expansion to our product range, Chromanator is a sophisticated compositing and bluescreening package that gives you precise control over how you piece your shots together.

AlamDV3 - An entirely new version of the program everybody already knows. Designed entirely from the ground up, AlamDV3 is a major advance for the series, offering all the innovative special effects solutions of AlamDV2 along with a host of new features and a vastly upgraded interface.

DigiGrade - Ever been frustrated by that 'home video' look that your camcorder has? Or perhaps you've wanted to really stylise your movies, like Minority Report or Lord of the Rings? DigiGrade enables you to do all that and more, giving you full control over the image itself.

Oh yeah!

And we all get to keep our current information and stats from this forum/website?

Just a question I had in my mind?

************

What I mean by that is - How is the cinema going to work? Are we going to resubmit all the works that we have done or do they get swept across?

I am really looking forward to see the cinema and all its sections/glory! smile

its much better to wait longer for a better bit of software than it is to wait less for a buggy undeveloped bit of software

patience is a virtue......

yeah... and you know whats not a virtue? POT!!! its not cool.

anyway, how much will each of these cost... cause it seems to me that digigrade doesnt do much. and that it could be added into another prog. or perhaps cost quite a deal less than the others.
just my thoughts

Um Marek, Digigrade will be VERY powerful and VERY useful and has to be a stand-alone program. For Lord of the Rings, they used a colour grading program which cost around $300,000! From what we've been told, Digigrade seems to do similar types of colour manipulation so at £50 I think we're getting a bit of a bargain!

Having not seen you in person I can't judge. I wouldn't think so though, as you seem to mention going through a phase of looking like James Marsters. I can't imagine a fat Spike lookalike...

..thats just my theory on that though. If you are fat. Stop eating crisps and remove yourself from the couch.

As Donnie would say.

If there's one thing I'm certain of, it's that Tarn ain't fat.

Crazy? Perhaps. Fat? No! (but he can cook a mean stir fry).

Go straight, then turn left. At the junction, look for the lady with the white poodle and turn in her direction. Keep going straight till you see a fire hydrant, then drive straight into the "Bert and Ernie" Deli just around the corner. I swear it leads to Sesame Street.

neutral Whatever happened to sticking with the subject in mind. This is really quite annoying to a serious user who is trying to get useful information. I'd appreciate if the community would support me in this voicing of opinion.
Anyone who disagrees can go sit on an old broomstick then pick out the splinters slowly.
Hahahaha. Wooooow. Had you guys going there didn't I? biggrin lol
But really, keep the humor to the subject, and it will make my search for what is needed, and everybody else, a lot easier. Thank you. wink
