StageTools Releases MovingPicture 5.0 for After Effects

Update adds Panther support, new productivity features By Dave Nagel
StageTools has released MovingPicture 5.0. MovingPicture is a plugin for Adobe After Effects and other hosts designed for panning and zooming on still images. The new version adds support for Mac OS X 10.3, as well as several productivity features. It's available now as a plugin or standalone application for Macintosh and Windows systems.

MovingPicture is targeted toward documentary film makers. It provides a framing box icon for setting the view of the image (up to 8,000 x 8,000 pixels) and adding keyframes for panning and zooming. Previews are provided in real time. The new 5.0 release adds support for Mac OS X 10.3 and also gains several features requested by users, such as 16:9 letterbox display, automatic show timing changes, expanded shortcut keys, image tinting, enhanced image filtering and support for new editors. It now supports Adobe After Effects, Avid systems, dpsVelocity, Discreet Edit, Apple Final Cut Pro, Media 100 systems and others. (A complete list is available on the company's Web site.) A standalone version is also available for Mac OS X and Windows.

MovingPicture 5 is available as a free update for registered MovingPicture users. (StageTools has not charged for an update for the last five years.) The full version runs $199. For more information, visit
