Still Life 2.3 updated
Granted Software today released for Mac OS X, a free update to its stand-alone application that enables users to pan and zoom over digital images and thereby produce a video for use in iMovie, iDVD or any other multimedia project. The program significantly extends the built-in Ken Burns Effect of iMovie 3 by allowing users to take multiple "shots" of an image, pan along a curve and rotate the "camera" if needed. Still Life is also compatible with iMovies 2, 3 and 4. Version 2.3 features a re-implemented export engine for reliable export especially on dual processor machines and offers various other bug fixes. Until registered ($25), a watermark is placed on any exported video.
