The Zeum, San Francisco's innovative
new art and technology center for youth, have recently upgraded to
version 2.0 of their hands-on multimedia creation lab.
Using an entire software suite designed for this lab by
Adamation, groups of young visitors use specialized
versions of personalStudioTM,
and Becasso 1.5 to produce multimedia presentations around a given theme. These
presentations are then web-cast. A detailed article about this technological
feat was recently published in Byte.com.
Becasso 2.3 adds extensive support for scripting. Filters can now be applied
via scripts, filter parameters are persistant and can be set and queried
Becasso 2.3 is available now!|
Both x86 and PowerPC versions are available, and the PowerPC version is free! Check the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
for more information.
There is no separate demo version, meaning no large new download when you register, and no differences in
the trial version apart from watermarking
when printing and exporting. What's best - after registering
(which costs only $29!), all the images saved in Becasso's native
(layered) file format during your evaluation of the product can still be used, and when saved again
from the unlocked version, the watermark is gone. So why don't you head over to BeBits.com
today and check it out?
