AlamDV, a UK start-up software company is appealing for beta testers to put its digital-video special-effects solution through its paces.

The company claims its software is aimed at amateur to intermediate DV editors who want an easy-to-use, fast-working product, but don't want to sacrifice quality. It's called AlamDV, and the company said it will launch the product in a few weeks with 12-16 tools to add various visual effects to DV edits.

Joshua Davis from the company is appealing for another 500 beta testers to help put the application through its paces. As it's a beta, Macworld has not tested it and urges readers to treat all beta software carefully.
