Corel KnockOut 2 Coming in NovemberNew version available as Photoshop plugin
KnockOut is a tool for creating masks on images using automated features that can detect the edges of a subject. It also uses color sampling and touch-up tools for refining a mask. The previous release functioned in some ways like Mask Pro from Extensis.
The new release is the third product in Corel's "procreate" line. It operates as a plugin for Photoshop or applications that support Photoshop filters, such as Corel's own Painter 7 and Photo-Paint. It has a number of new features, including:
- The ability to work with CMYK images;
- New touch-up tools, including brushes and erasers;
- More extensive support for keyboard shortcuts;
- Reduced memory requirements.
KnockOut 2 will be available in November for $329. Users of version 1.0 through 1.5 can upgrade for $149. A German version is expected in late December, with French, Italian, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese to follow in early 2002.
