Stone ships Videator 1.0
Stone Design today announced Videator 1.0, a powerful movie-making and video processing application that lets you instantly make movies with many different effects from live video or existing movies. Created to run natively on Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs, Videator provides an intuitive and easy-to-use interface for Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)'s Core Image and Core Video technologies, offering instant access to over 108 effects, transitions, and filters. With Videator, users can layer movies, 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. It is available now for $50 (with free upgrades "for life").
