Totally Hip Software and MacCentral recently held a giveaway of a complete QuickTime Authoring Bundle from Totally Hip. To enter the contest, you just needed to fill out the entry form at Totally Hip's Web site.
The winner of the bundle is Andrew Haddock, a graphic designer in the U.S. Andrew has been contacted about winning the bundle and should receive a shipment shortly.
The bundle consists of HipFlics 1.1, LiveSlideShow 2.0 and LiveStage Professional 3.0 -- all products that run natively on Mac OS X.
With LiveSlideShow you can add transitions, voiceovers, sound effects, interactive elements -- such as arrows to move to the next slide -- and scrolling captions to any digital picture. And with the new media skins feature, consumers can now present their slideshows inside uniquely shaped themed players.
HipFlics, a video compression tool, supports all the major codecs available in QuickTime. The new version also features better performance, new drag and drop presets built for QuickTime 5 and compatibility with Sorenson 3 Pro, VP3 and Zygovideo. In addition, Hipflics supports multiple video codecs within one movie.
The last product in the bundle is the company's flagship application, LiveStage Professional. LiveStage Pro is used to integrate digital media content and create interactive movie experiences. LiveStage Professional provides developers with many tools and allows them to incorporate over 200 industry standard formats such as GIF, JPEG, Flash media, MP3 Photoshop documents, AIF, MIDI, VR, MPEG and more, into a single project.
Congratulations Andrew, from Totally Hip and MacCentral.
