Wildform has released Flix Pro, software that outputs all types of Flash video.
The solution lets users encode and customize video to post online in Flash format in minutes.
Available for Mac and Windows, the solution supports Flash versions 3-5, and Flash MX.
The solution outputs all types of Flash video, playing within the Flash 6 player. It uses video-compression codecs that compare to those used in QuickTime, Windows Media, and RealPlayer.
Vector video Flix Pro will also convert standard video into vector video using its advanced automated trace bitmap function. This plays in any Flash player, and consists only of lines and curves defined by mathematical equations. These can scale to any size without distortion. This effect could become widely exploited on Web, TV and film productions, since Flix can turn any video into an animation that can be manipulated in Flash.
Flix’s features include: bit rate control; encoding presets; batch-encoding; overlays; link-support; play controls; file-stitching and HTML output; and .wav and MP3 output. Flix Pro costs $149. Each licence includes $100 in video clips from the Wildform video library.
Wildform CEO, Jonathan Blank, said: “Wildform is very pleased to continue the development of our industry-leading Flash video software, and to extend our support to the media-savvy Mac audience.”
