News: Synthetic Aperture Now Shipping Color Finesse 3.0
Enhancements Include 64-bit Adobe CS5 and Apple FxPlug Support
(San Juan Capistrano, California--August 23, 2010) Today Synthetic Aperture announced that Color Finesse 3.0, a new version of their color correction plug-in for Adobe After Effects and Apple Final Cut Pro, is now available for immediate purchase.
Enhanced Application Support
Version 3.0 adds a 64-bit plug-in to support Adobe's CS5 64-bit applications, in addition to the 32-bit version. The move to 64-bit addressing significantly reduces the possibility of out-of-memory errors occurring during effects rendering. Tests with real-world projects which could not be rendered in 32-bit mode work flawlessly and speedily with the 64-bit plug-in and applications.
Color Finesse 3.0 also adds a native FxPlug-style plug-in to support Apple Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Express, and Motion. By virtue of being an FxPlug, performance is enhanced and pixel format conversions are reduced.
New Features in Color Finesse 3.0
Color Finesse 3.0 adds the following new features:
Color Finesse 3.0 is compatible with both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macintosh systems, running Mac OS X 10.5 and later. For Windows users, Color Finesse 3.0 is compatible with Windows XP, Vista 32/64, and Windows 7 32/64.
Color Finesse 3.0 supports Adobe After Effects 7.0 and CS3 through CS5, Premiere Pro CS3 through CS5, Final Cut Pro 6 and 7, and Motion 4.0.
Pricing and Availability
Color Finesse 3.0 is shipping now. The PI plug-in (for After Effects, Final Cut Pro, and other compatible applications) is priced at $575. Upgrades from prior versions of Color Finesse are $149.
