Stimulus, a Carbonized multimedia viewer for Mac OS 8-9 and Mac OS X, has been updated to version 2.1.
Created by the folks at Electric Butterfly, Stimulus is an integrated software product developed with REALbasic. Stimulus works like a file browser, allowing you to select and view/play images, audio files and video clips from within a single application. It supports 17 file formats, zoom, printing, file properties and more.
Stimulus also has a slideshow option for continuous play of MP3 files, a Scale to Fit option for images and video clips and the ability to drag and drop a folder or Mac volume/disk onto the Stimulus display window.
Version 2.1 is a maintenance release. It adds performance refinements and several minor bug fixes.
System requirements are a Power Mac running Mac OS 8 or higher (including Mac OS X), QuickTime 4 or higher, 5MB of RAM, 2MB of free hard drive space, Adobe Acrobat Reader (for reading the included user’s guide), and a default Web browser such as Netscape Communicator or Microsoft Internet Explorer with an Internet connection.
You can download a fully functional trial version at the
product Web site. Stimulus is US$12 shareware. The unregistered version of Stimulus will operate in an unlimited mode for 30 days from the time the application is first launched.
