Paint Mask, brush slider get tweaks

Tiffen has released v3.0.5 of Dfx, its effects suite for photo and video editing. The upgrade critically adds support for Avid's new 64-bit editing tools, including Media Composer 6, Symphony 6 and NewsCutter 10. Also newly supported is a host of Sony cameras. The list includes DSLRs like the A550, A580, A700, A850, and A900, but also the NEX-3, NEX-5/5N, NEX-C3, and several SLT-series cameras: the A33, A35, A55V, A65V, and A77V. Remaining cameras on the list are the XCD-SX910CR and the STV680 VGA.

Two changes have also been made to Dfx's tools. The Paint Mask feature has been given new blur controls, offering better manipulation of blending and transitioning. A new adjustable brush slider, meanwhile, can cover areas as large as half of a screen.

Three different editions of Dfx available. Standalone is $170, but doesn't integrate with other editing tools. Photo costs $200, and plugs into Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom, and Aperture. Video/Film, finally, is $600, but needed for support of Avid and Adobe video editors, as well as Final Cut Pro 6 and 7 from Apple. All versions of Dfx require OS X 10.6 or later.
