StageTools Releases MovingPicture 2.0
NLE plugin gets faster rendering
StageTools has announced MovingPicture 2.0, a plugin for a number of NLEs
and compositing applications for Mac and Windows. MovingPicture is a tool
for documentary and industrial filmmakers to pan and zoom on high-resolution
images. It takes scanned images up to 4,000 pixels and allows for repeatable
pans and zooms directly from a nonlinear editorís timeline.
Moving Picture 2.0 has picked up a number of enhancements, including faster
rendering, QuickTime rendering and keyframe eases, according to StageTools.
In MovingPicture, the image appears on the screen. Dragging and sizing
a framing box icon on top of it changes the view, adding key frames onto
the timeline. Editor's can preview the motion in real time without any
rendering and finally rendered in high resolution without ever leaving
the timeline. Motion is field-rendered at sub-pixel accuracy and in 32-bit
Macintosh versions are available for Adobe After Effects and Premiere,
Apple Final Cut Pro and Media 100 systems. The MovingPicture plugin is
priced at $199. Registered users can upgrade at no charge. For more information
