has announced the availability of the Virtix Sample Pack 2.0, a free collection of six effects available for iMovie.
Virtix Sample Pack 2.0 incorporates several effects introduced in the 1.0 version, including Extreme Black and White, Flame, and Letterbox. Users now gain control over the smoothness of the contours of the abstract images generated by Extreme Black and White.
What’s more, three new effects have included: Dream Border, which adds a cloudy white border around your video; Glint, which adds a sparkle of light to a point you choose; and Virtix Soft Focus, which adds a soft, hazy look. Virtix’s Soft Focus differs from the version included with iMovie by retaining a portion of the original sharp image, so you can add blurring without losing all the detail of the original image.
Visit Virtix’s Web site to download the Virtix Sample Pack 2.0. It works with iMovie 2.0.1 and up for Mac OS 9 and iMovie 2.1 and higher for Mac OS X.
