Digital Heaven Releases Two Final Cut Pro Plug-insUpdates DH_WideSafe (December 02, 2005)
Digital Heaven announced the release of two new Final Cut Pro/Express plug-ins.
DH_Counter is a video generator which automatically creates a mins:secs text counter. Featuring comprehensive options for count up/ down, whether the count includes zero and a stopwatch mode for display of 1/100ths of a second.
DH_Fade is a video filter which makes it easy to create consistent fade in/outs on clips which have different durations. Once set up with the desired duration, the filter can quickly be copied/pasted to other clips to save time.
In addition there is also a new version of DH_WideSafe, the 16:9 safe area generator. Version 1.2 of DH_WideSafe is now fully compliant with BBC/EBU specifications for widescreen safe areas and is a free upgrade to existing customers.
Pricing and availability:
The entire range of 12 Digital Heaven plug-ins are available for individual download purchase for just US$10 each from the Digital Heaven online store at www.digital-heaven.co.uk. Demo versions of some plug-ins are also available.
About Digital Heaven
Digital Heaven was founded in 2000 by ex-BBC Resources editor Martin Baker. For almost six years we provided broadcast post production facilities for clients such as the BBC, Channel Four and many independent production companies. In Summer 2003 we became the first London facility to make the switch from Avid editing systems to Apple's Final Cut Pro. At the same time we started software development, releasing our first product, EDL Mirror in September 2003. Since then we have added 12 Final Cut Plug-ins and Multicam Lite, the first multicamera editing solution for Final Cut Pro.
In October 2005 we released VideoSpace - a free widget for Mac OS X Tiger which calculates the disk space required for a given duration and codec setting. VideoSpace clocked up over 10,000 downloads in the first month of release and was featured as a macworld.com ?Widget of the Week and as a staff favourite on Apples widget download page.
November 2005 saw the release of MovieLogger for Mac OS X. This easy to use logging software for QuickTime movies is designed for non- technical users and enables export of logs to Final Cut Pro via XML.
As we enter 2006 we are concentrating all our efforts on software products with many exciting applications currently in development.
