Discreet Ships Cleaner 6 for Mac

New version gets enhanced dual-processor support By Dave Nagel
Discreet has released Cleaner 6 for Macintosh. Discreet's Cleaner 6 is the successor to Media Cleaner Pro and Cleaner 5, a video and audio encoding suite formerly owned by Terran Interactive and Media 100. The new version gains a number of new features and runs natively in Mac OS X. It's available now.

Discreet is positioning the new version of Cleaner as a companion to video editing and motion graphics software. Aside from coming equipped with 150 presets for single-step encoding, it also includes more than 50 filters and correction tools for fine tuning digital video in QuickTime, RealMedia, Windows Media and Kinoma (a video format for handheld PDAs).


Other new features include:

  • Support for MPEG-4 and AAC audio compression via Apple's QuickTime 6;
  • Two-pass variable bit rate (VBR) MPEG-2 encoding for DVD;
  • New Watch Folders;
  • Optimization for the G4 Velocity Engine;
  • Improved dual-processor support;
  • Drag and drop encoding.

Discreet Cleaner 6 for Macintosh is available now for $599. Upgrades run $179. A version for Windows is expected next year. For more information, visit http://www.discreet.com.
