Pinnacle Ships Commotion Pro 4New version gets speed boost, new tools
Commotion Pro 4 has more highly developed algorithms that cut paint times in half and composite times by 30 percent. Other new features include:
- New Grouping and Browsing Controls for managing composites and working with multiple layers at once. Users can add mattes, color corrections or other filters and motion controls to multiple layers at once. Groups can also be viewed solo in the timeline.
- Pinnacle CineWave users will be able to view their NTSC and PAL media in real time. Commotion Video Preview mirrors the user's clip to the display, allowing editors to judge the colors and animation timing of their media on an external video monitor as they work.
- Users can also import Adobe Photoshop files into a composite while preserving the individual layer information, including transfer modes, transparencies, masks and names.
Commotion Pro 4.0 is shipping for $995. Commotion 4.0 costs $495. Upgrade pricing for versions 3.0 or earlier is $249 and $149 respectively. Customers who purchased Commotion 3.1 after April 19 can contact their reseller for a free upgrade. For more information, visit http://www.commotionpro.com.
