Times continue to be very exciting. Last month at NAB, we were demoing an early preview of iStopMotion 2 which excited the visitors along with a couple of Quartz Composer plug-ins which will appear in products soon.
The team is hard at work to bring a couple of updates and new releases to market. If you want, you can check out the FotoMagico 2.1 Beta which features vastly improved export quality for H.264 and DV formats used for the web and for DVDs and has a nice color adjustment feature with which you can make a sequence of images match each others color better.
Next month is Apple's World Wide Developer Conference in San Francisco where the Boinx Software team will take a close look at Mac OS X Leopard. You will hear all about our plans with that in the upcoming newsletters or at Boinx Chronicles.
Your Boinx Software Team:
Oliver, Achim, Vera, Michael, Florian, Peter, Stefan & Bastian.
