Stone Design on Tuesday announced the release of
3.0, a new version of its video performance, movie making and video processing software for Mac OS X. A free update for registered users, Videator costs $49.
Videator is designed for multiple purposes, for Mac users manipulating video content. You can make it work as a live performance video VJ’ing too, for example, or use it to make slideshows of still images; edit existing movies non-destructively; mix music and other audio content with moving pictures; access Core Image plug-ins; use time-based effects; layer text, images and other movies on one another; display fractal patterns and much more.
New to the 3.0 release are features like “Wire to Sound,” which enables you to change effects dynamically based on sound input; playing overlayed movies and blend filters at any speed; set up an “Effects Queue” for use in live performances; transitions that let you choose destination images or movies; fade in and fade out effects; GIF and Flash image export; and more.
