Corel has launched KnockOut 2, a new version of its Adobe Photoshop masking tool, under the company's procreate product mantra. The new release converts KnockOut into a plug-in rather than a standalone app, adds precision tools for improved masking and support for the CMYK color model. KnockOut 2 will be available for purchase November 2001 at the suggested retail price of US $330, while upgrades will be priced at $150. KnockOut 2 is Classic/Carbon compatible, with Mac OS X specific interface features.
