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.
