Anark Announces Anark Studio 2

Mac OS X version coming in July By Dave Nagel
Anark Corp. today announced that it will ship Anark Studio 2 later this month for Windows. The new version of the multimedia authoring suite will include a client and player for Mac OS X, with a full version of the Studio for Mac OS X to follow in July.

Anark has been demonstrating pre-release versions of Anark Studio for Mac OS X since January. A company representative told us that the full Mac OS X version will launch at the Siggraph convention, which kicks off July 27 at the San Diego Convention Center in California. This will be the first commercial release for the Mac platform. The Windows version will be released in late May.

Anark Studio 2 will offer "a wealth of additional features and functionality," according to the company, including a flexible workspace, drag and drop behaviors and an upgraded timeline. It will offer real-time compositing and integration of 3D, video, images, audio and interactivity. And with the new cross-platform Anark Client, Anark Studio 2 will allow users to create for both Macintosh OSX and Windows players, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, self-contained screensavers, video and Web.

Other new features include:

  • An upgraded Timeline offering scalability and filters;
  • A redesigned inspector palette;
  • New component feature;
  • Anark Player 2 and Anark Client 2 for Macintosh OS X;
  • Screensaver export (for Windows);
  • Projector export for producing standalone CDs and DVDs;
  • Enhanced rendering compatibility with OpenGL support for a majority of graphics cards on the market;
  • Video export.

Anark Studio 2 will be available late May for WIndows, late July for Mac OS X. Pricing on the new version has not yet been announced. For more information, visit
