[12:30 PM] VideoScript Adds New Filter Functions
by Staff

VideoScript Inc. announced the release of VideoScript 1.9. With this version comes powerful new AltiVec enhanced functions for tracking objects and a host of other features. VideoScript harnesses the multimedia capabilities of QuickTime to provide, for the first time, an integrated easy-to-use environment for working with digital video in real-time. VideoScript, aimed at security systems providers and multimedia professionals, integrates the capture, analysis and output of video data. According to the company:

The new features in version 1.9 are result of our commitment to provide VideoScript programmers with the most powerful and flexible tool for processing digital video. Highlights of the 1.9 release are:

  • New function browser, which lets you see the available plug-in functions and their parameters.
  • Flexible new filter functions turn VideoScript into a scriptable Photoshop-like tool for image editing.
  • New AltiVec enhanced 'find' functions make locating and tracking multiple objects a snap.
  • Error handling capabilities allow you to write more robust programs.
  • Improved support for Plug-In functions allow third party vendors to create VideoScript functions for specialized tasks.
  • Many under-the-hood improvements, which yield improved stability in low memory situations and recovery from runtime errors.

VideoScript 1.9 requires a Mac OS computer with PowerPC processor, Mac OS 7.5 or later, QuickTime 3.0 and at least 4 Mb of spare RAM.

VideoScript 1.9 is available now in two versions, a professional version for US$295.00 and a Lite version which is available for free download. Upgrades are free for current VideoScript users.

You can find more information on the product at the company's web site.
