Some of the features in the new release include, reading JPEG2000 images, mask overlays, zoom rectangles, A/B clip comparisons (window, split screen or wipe), dynamic play list editing, MPEG proxies and automatic slate generation.  Everything weve included is a result of customer feedback weve received so Im absolutely certain that both our present and future customers will be happy with what they see
