Media 100 ICE Supports After Effects 5.5

Support does not include OS X By Dave Nagel
Media 100 today announced support for Adobe After Effects 5.5 with its ICE and Final Effects packages. Both are available for ac OS 9 and Windows, though support for OS X has yet to be announced.

ICE, for those who don't know, is an acceleration board for a variety of software applications. The company acquired the rights to use the technology last year and has remained fairly quiet about it ever since, even though it had been previously used as an acceleration option for edia Cleaner Pro, which, at the time, Media 100 also owned. CE is currently available in two configurations: ICE and ICE Ultra. The regular ICE board uses four Philips Trimedia 1300 processors running at 166 MHz. The ICE ultra uses eight Trimedia 1300 processors running at 166 MHz.


Final Effects is a package of software plugins for After Effects. The package is included with the ICE board but is also available separately.

Media 100 ICE for After Effects is available for $3,749 and includes hardware acceleration of core After Effects compositing plus 50 accelerated plug-in effects. Media 100 ICE Ultra for After Effects is available for $5,995 and includes enhanced hardware acceleration of core After Effects compositing plus 124 accelerated plug-in effects, including DE Cinelook, Media 100 Final Effects Complete and Ultimatte. Media 100 Final Effects Complete is available for $795 and is a software-only collection of 110 effects. For more information, visit http://www.media100.com.
