Totally Hip Software has released HipFlics 1.1, an audio/video compression tool supporting all QuickTime 5 codecs, including Sorenson Video 3. The company says it allows "everyday consumers" to produce video for the web or CD-ROM using its drag & drop interface and timeline-based controls. HipFlics supports multiple codecs within a single movie, cropping, watermarking, and filter effects. Version 1.1 suppports all QuickTime 5 codecs and VP3, the open-source codec from On2 and is a free upgrade to the $100 application. A demo is expected to be posted soon.
