Echo Fire is designed to provide digital video users who work in After Effects and Photoshop with a way to instantly preview their work on an NTSC or PAL monitor. It functions with FireWire, Digital Voodoo D1 Desktop, Pinnacle CineWave and more. With Echo Fire 2.1’s release, the software works natively on Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X, along with various flavors of Windows.
New features in Echo Fire 2.1 also include the ability to add clipboard previews for applications that don’t support video previewing — enabling Echo Fire to work with 3D apps, paint programs, or any other imaging software. Echo Fire 2.1 also supports a wide variety of video output devices, including any device that has a QuickTime Video Output Component.
Echo Fire 2.1 costs US$275. Registered users of 2.0 can download a free update; upgrades from version 1.x are $49.
