A lowly apprentice production Inc. has released a new version of ShadowCaster, its plug-in for Adobe InDesign. The new version can be downloaded from the company’s Web site now.
ShadowCaster enables Adobe InDesign users to create soft-shadows on text and graphics, eliminating the need to work with an image-editing program to create such effects. The shadows themselves are high-resolution TIFF images that are created from objects selected in the InDesign layout. ShadowCaster enables users to create silhouettes, outlines, and ghosts.
Version 1.0.2 of Mac ShadowCaster for InDesign corrects the following problems:
Creating and burning shadows at high resolutions could cause a system crash
At times, a color shift would occur when burning shadows into a CMYK image
System requirements for ShadowCaster for Adobe InDesign call for a PowerPC-based Mac; Mac OS 8.5 or later; and InDesign 1.5 or later. The download link below is for the fully functional program when supplied with a serial number — otherwise it will operate in demo mode. ShadowCaster is offered for US$99.99, with discounts available in multi-user packs.
