June 7, 2007 - San Francisco â€" Stone Design, the original Mac OS X software house with over 19 years of experience with major titles like Stone Works(TM), Create(R), and iMaginator(TM), today announced immediate availability of Videator(TM) 4.0. It's yet another major (and free to registered users!) upgrade to the innovative and powerful Vee-Jaying, movie-making and video processing application that lets you instantly make movies with all sorts of effects from live video or existing movies. Created to run natively on INTEL and PPC processors, Videator takes full advantage of Apple's newest computers and operating systems. Videator is both a "PhotoShoppe For Video" and a realtime performance video creation adventure.
Videator 4.0 adds and enhances these important features:
* Mix in as many live cameras as you want!
You can connect as many cameras to your computer as you like, for example the MacBook Pro has 2 builtin fire wire ports, the iSight and 3 USB ports natively. You can add effects to each camera's input individually.
* Turn your Desktop into a live Videator Composition
It's very easy to create animated rotations now with six new menu items:
* Spin Once: adds a rotation at the beginning of the selection
* Spin All: adds a series of rotations over the duration of the selection
* Rotate Right: rotates the camera/movie to the right
* Rotate Left: rotates the camera/movie to the left
* Kaleido Spin: turns your mac into an everchanging Kaleidoscope!
* XaoS Kaleido: even more fantastic, adds fractals to the everchanging Kaleidescope - you must have XaoS installed
* Prepared and supercharged for Leopard!
* And here are the new features from Version 3.0
According to Stone Design CEO, Andrew Stone, "Now you can turn your Mac into a world class VJ'ing platform! Mere mortals can instantly create realtime art with live streaming input. With the ability to add as many live input cameras as you want, you can make video compositions that rival anything that Hollywood puts out! Or turn your Desktop into a Videator Kaleidoscope for some real fun."
Videator provides an intuitive and easy to use interface for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)'s Core Image and Core Video technologies, giving both home users and video professionals instant access to over 110 effects, transitions, and filters. With Videator, users can layer movies, multiple live cameras, images, paint, music and text over video, as well as apply, modify, and re-order multiple effects to achieve subtle enhancements or astounding artistic results. Crop, scale, rotate, flip, skew, change exposure and brighten movies in real time, and then save processed movies as QuickTime or iPod, and images as industry-standard TIFF or JPEG files.
