|[11:15 AM] New Video Editing Solution Hits Market
iREZ Software has released a digital-video editing program called Reel-Eyes. Reel-Eyes follows on the heels of Apple's new iMac DV, and the personal digital-video editing program, iMovie. Reel-Eyes provides some of the basic features of the new iMovie, which is handy for those wanting to delve into video editing, but can't buy a new iMac. According to iREZ Software:
Today, iREZ is releasing its revolutionary new Reel-Eyes software, which is a sophisticated, value-priced software application for professional, home and business use that can transfer high-quality, 30 frames-per-second analog video to and from computer RAM or disk memory.
With Reel-Eyes, users can playback feature-length movies from a computer, export video to DV stream, and save a selected portion of a video clip as a self-contained .avi movie. Source video can be cropped to a predetermined fixed-frame size for transfer to RAM or disk. In addition, bmp, flc, image sequence and QTC format video, as well as other low data rate movies, can be played in the background in a multitasking environment.
Reel-Eyes is available for the very affordable price of US$39.95. You can find more information at the iREZ web site.
The Mac Observer Spin: With the new iMac DV and iMovie, products of this type are going to flourish. Entry level products like Reel-Eyes allow everybody to get into the digital-video editing field, which will certainly help the popularity of digital-video editing grow.
