Avid Updates Xpress Pro

Version 4.1.1 adds Panther/G5 compatibility By Dave Nagel
Avid has released Xpress Pro 4.1.1, an update to the company's nonlinear editing system. The new version adds Panther compatibility with one G5 model and also offers various minor fixes and enhancements. It's available now for Mac OS X.

Avid Xpress Pro software offers 24 video and 24 audio tracks (unlimited through nesting), 2D and 3D OpenGL-based effects, enhanced titling, JKL edit, trim and machine control. Avid IllusionFX, Image Stabilization, Pan and Zoom, the FilmMaker's Toolkit, Sonic ReelDVD, Sorenson Squeeze 3.1 Compression Suite, Boris Graffiti and Profound Effects Elastic Gasket software are included in every Avid Xpress Pro box. The new version brings support to Mac OS X 10.3.1 on Apple's dual 2.0 GHz G5 systems. (Mac OS X 10.2.8 is still the supported OS on all other Mac models.) It also addresses issues related to Mojo hardware, including component output, audio capture when video is set to DV 25, illegal black levels in PAL when switching modes and hanging when using some external DV devices. Non-Mojo-related fixes are also included, such as a vertical shift issue that occurred on the desktop monitor when alternating between play and pause on the deck. Complete documentation is available on Avid's site.

Avid Xpress Pro 4.1.1 is available now for Mac OS X and Windows. For more information, visit
