Test Gear 2.0 for CS3

Synthetic Aperture is now shipping Test Gear 2.0, a new version of its video and audio monitoring software designed for Adobe After Effects CS3. Test Gear features a waveform monitor, vectorscope, and other diagnostic displays -- all of which are fully integrated into After Effects CS3's user interface. Version 2.0 also adds Universal Binary support for Intel-based Macs as well as enhances all of the test instruments by adding full support for 32-bit floating-point projects. Synthetic said that video footage imported into After Effects now properly displays values above 100 IRE and below 0 IRE on the waveform monitor, slice display, and histogram and a new Gamut Display has been added that clearly shows the "legality" of the levels in the image. Test Gear 2.0 requires Adobe After Effects CS3 (and is not compatible with earlier versions of After Effects). Test Gear 2.0 is currently shipping for $125 per license ($95 if downloaded via the company's web site). Upgrades from previous versions of Test Gear are $50 (download only).
