Enhancements Include 64-bit Adobe CS5 Support
(San Juan Capistrano, California--December 3, 2010) Synthetic Aperture announced today that Test Gear 2.5, a new version of their test instrument plug-in for Adobe After Effects is now available for immediate purchase. New features include 64-bit support for Adobe After Effects CS5.
Test Gear adds test instruments including waveform monitor, vectorscope, histogram, and audio monitoring directly into the After Effects interface. Additionally, it adds a color picker and color swatch book support.
Support for 64-bit Adobe CS5t
Version 2.5 adds a 64-bit plug-in to support Adobe's CS5 64-bit version of After Effects, while continuing to offer full compatibility with the 32-bit After Effects CS3 and CS4.
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..
