PulpMotion 1.0 ships
Aquafadas today launched PulpMotion 1.0, a new Mac OS X application that offers users a simple yet powerful new option for designing and sharing striking media montages that integrate personal photos, videos and music. "By simply dragging and dropping their favorite photos, movie clips and music into a visual “theme” or full-motion background template, users can create a whole new way to display- and share- digital media," the company said. PulpMotion offers a menu of "visually arresting" themes which range from business-like to esoteric to comical--all of which can be integrated into moving displays, such as a fake newscast. These displays can then be emailed through an interactive postcard, loaded onto an iPod, used as a personalized screensaver, exported as high quality QuickTime movies, or published to a website using iWeb. Users can also add the recipient's video image (live) into any composition using the Mac's built-in iSight camera. It requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and is available for $25.
