ArtMatic Pro has been developed to automatically create graphics and animation, as well as process still images and QuickTime movies, making it suitable for use in video effects, filters and transitions. The software features a library of more than 300 graphics generators and filters, which can be patched together to create complex images and effects.
The new version is now native for Mac OS X, with rendering engine optimizations that have resulted in a 50 percent improvement in speed. High-resolution input pictures are supported, and a scalable user interface is now incorporated. AIFF support is provided for animation by sound and soundtracks. 20 new graphics components have been added, VTrack integration is improved, batch rendering is included, and more.
ArtMatic Pro is available for download for US$249. It’s also available on CD-ROM with additional content for $299.
