Alias|Wavefront has revealed closer links to rival Quantel, with the company pledging support for Quantel's new iQ range. Quantel iQ is a new architecture for digital video workflow, says the company, offering a real-time backbone of image-processing technology that also offers ties to other, DV-specific solutions from third-parties. Alias|Wavefront's Maya Paint Effects on Qpaint will be previewed at IBC2000 – and is the first time that Paint Effects will be available on Quantel. Previously, Maya was available for the system. A full demonstration will be shown on booth 7.730 at IBC in Amsterdam. Watch Digit Online for breaking IBC2000 news as it happened.
