updated 04:35 pm EDT, Wed May 26, 2010

Lightworks opens beta to 80 professionals

onOne has released an update to its Genuine Fractals plug-in that adds both Photoshop CS5 and 64-bit support, while EditShare has announced the launch of a closed beta for an upcoming release of Lightworks.

An update to onOne's image resizing plug-in, Genuine Fractals, has been released. The Photoshop add-on makes use of fractal-based interpolation algorithms to increase the size of images without sacrificing sharpness or detail. New to v6.0.5 is support for both Photoshop CS5 and 64-bit processing. The latter is said to improve the overall performance of the software, potentially running twice as fast. People who use Genuine Fractals 6 independently of Plug-In Suite 5 should install the update as soon as possible. Plug-In Suite owners, however, are asked to wait for the upcoming Plug-In Suite 5.1 update.

EditShare accepts applications for Lightworks beta testing

EditShare has introduced an exclusive beta program for its upcoming Lightworks Open Source software. The program will be limited to 80 highly-experienced participants, but provide access to upcoming Lightworks features, including project sharing, 3D stereoscopic editing, Universal Media File support, native RED and 2K compatibility, and integration with Avid and FCP. Qualified editors can apply to participate in the beta before June 21st by visiting the company's website and filling out a form.
