Digital Imaging Software: Interactive Solutions

Interactive Solutions Inc.'s MovieWorks Deluxe 5.2.1 is a multimedia authoring suite that combines simple-to-use video, sound, animation, paint and image editing tools with a powerful time-based, object-oriented sequencing and authoring program. The integrated production applications make it easy to incorporate analog or digital video, buttons, photos, graphics, animation, 3-D, narration, MIDI, MP3, CD music, text and titling, and even virtual-reality movies into professional-quality multimedia productions. Users can create an unlimited number of scenes, then link them together either sequentially or through menu-driven button links. Scenes may include any combination and number of media objects, and are used to organize projects into logical segments. For more sophisticated productions, the software lets users add custom play controls, and link to Web pages and other documents. Users can easily distribute their MovieWorks projects on an auto-run CD, copy them to tape or DV, or export them as a QuickTime or AVI file. Those in turn can then be imported into other applications, posted to a Web page or attached to e-mails. Interactive Solutions Inc., Pleasanton, CA, (925) 734-0730,
