HyperStudio 5 shipping

Software MacKiev and Roger Wagner have reintroduced HyperStudio as HyperStudio 5, the first new edition of the software in over a decade. The software is used to organize information (stacks) into a structure that supports storytelling, commonly used in education. The new version includes iLife support and includes webcams. It now has live object support, allowing editing of any action, even brush strokes. HyperStudio 5 has advanced graphics effects and text options and has a customizable toolbar, displaying the most frequently used tools.

The new release can publish to MobileMe, export to iPod video formats, and import media from YouTube, iMovie and iTunes. It can also import old HyperStudio stacks. Future improvements, including extended options for podcasting and recording and displaying live video, are in progress and will be made available without additional charge to HyperStudio 5 users.

HyperStudio 5 includes over 1300 clipart graphic elements, 500 background images, 280 sounds, 200 animations and 30 movies. It supports common file formats like JPG, MOV, M4V and HTML for export and can import PDF, PNG, JPG, TIF, MP3, AAC, WMA, AIFF, MOV, AVI and more. The software requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher and a G4 400MHZ or faster processor. It requires a minimum of 256MB RAM. It is available for order now, costing $90 for a single-user license and providing volume discounts for multiple users.

    Excited!

    Whoa! HyperStudio is back, and better than ever?! I'm a teacher and HyperStudio was one KICK-a** program that students and teachers loved and used all the time. Easy to learn and really promoted non-linear thinking. This is the best news I've heard for a while! Catch cha later. Have to go to their site and buy a copy NOW!
