eLine Technologies has announced the release of VideoClix 2.0, a major upgrade to its interactive video editing software. VideoClix 2.0 works on Mac OS and Mac OS X.
With VideoClix, users can actually interact with objects in video content. The software has applications for educational, commercial and military use, according to the developers. Videos can be served up using any HTTP or RTSP server and tied into any database without requiring additional plug-ins or components.
The new 2.0 version includes new click, rollover and time-triggered actions, messaging for third party application support (including Flash, iShell, and LS Pro), HTML-independent interactivity, faster object tracking, canned effects, full OS X support and MPEG support, and improvements to the user interface.
Supported file formats are QuickTime movies, MPEG1, AVI, Flash and DV. MPEG2 and MPEG4 will be supported with the release of QuickTime 6.
VideoClix 2.0 costs US$499; for a limited time you can purchase VideoClix 2.0 and an iShell Silver membership together for $999 — normally $1,474. Educational discounts are available.
