The only consumer-priced alternative to Apple's iMovie software, Montage was built for OS X from the ground up and is 100% Cocoa native. Montage features a groundbreaking "trackless" workspace that allows the free manipulation of video, audio, stills, and text in an infinitely expandable window. Combining powerful video, audio and text features, the user interface is completely transparent. If you can see a movie in your mind, you can easily create it in Montage by placing and editing clips in the workspace. Media clips can be dragged and dropped, imported or captured in real time from a FireWire DV camera using remote machine control, then freely arranged in the workspace to make movies or achieve audio projects. Real-time, editable transitions are automatically created when video clips are dragged on top of each other and over a dozen video effects, including edge detection, emboss, film noise, and color tint are available and can be applied to any video clip; a realtime preview box takes the guesswork out of adjusting effect parameters. Montage's audio capabilities are second to none. Audio clips can be edited, arranged, stacked, and processed to generate stunning soundtracks. There is no track limit because . . . there are no tracks. Montage comes with a wide variety of studio-quality effects from Arboretum's acclaimed Hyperprism suite of processors and more can be added via a flexible plug-in architecture - including the popular Ray Gun and Ray Gun Pro for cleaning up scratchy vinyl, tape hiss, hum, and other problem recordings. Montage also offers powerful text features to display credits, section titles or even karaoke lyrics. Set font, size, type, color, style, alignment, scroll direction and auto clip duration. Place text against transparent background (for use on video) or user-defined background color. Text boxes can be placed over video clips or keyed against an editable background with adjustable duration for scrolling. Montage is designed for novice digital moviemakers or professionals who want a dynamic, productive new type of workspace.
