Matrox has beefed up its RT2500 offering by launching an enhancement pack. Matrox Pro Pack for RT2500 and RT2000 adds a range of tools to the real-time video-editing packages, including a WYSIWYG plug-in for Adobe After Effects, batch functionality for encoding Web-streaming files. The Pro Pack will initially ship for Windows. The upgrade, which the company says will cost $99 (around 69 pounds), will also include a new real-time blur effect, plus alpha-masking. A feature dubbed 'full keyframe-ability' by the company means most effects have enhanced keyframe options - for example, page curls can now have the width and depth of the 3D curve altered, says Matrox. Pro Pack will be bundled free with RT2500 until the end of the year, says Matrox, and users who purchased RT2500 after August 1, 2001 should be able to upgrade for free. Pro Pack will also work for RT2000.
