Magnet 1.5 goes beta

eX-cinder today released Magnet 1.5 Beta for a one-month test program. The new release includes numerous effects such as Beating Heart, Stylize, and Color Effects alongside tighter integration with Apple's Quartz Composer technology. Magnet works by allowing users to place "probes" on moving objects in a QuickTime movie that the software tracks over time. Users can then hook numerous special effects known as compositions to probes to create visual effects. Magnet uses advanced motion tracking technology as well as the latest Core Image and Quartz Composer advances to render effects in real-time, and resulting movies are exportable as QuickTime movies that are usable on devices such as the Apple TV, iPod, and iPhone. Magnet 1.5b is available for free as part of a one-month beta evaluation program, after which licenses will cost $30. Magnet 1.5 is a free upgrade for existing 1.x owners, and the software requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
