Interactive Effects Releases Piranha HD 3.1

Interactive Effects, producers of high-end visual effects systems Piranha

and Amazon Paint, recently announced the release of Piranha 3.1 for Silicon

Graphics Workstations. The new version expands the systems' capabilities in

areas such as video support, digital audio and disk/graphics performance,

as well as adding new features such as Mipmap Texturing, high speed soft

edged rotosplining and improved image tracking capabilities. Also new to

version 3.1 are several new levels of scripting control -- users can now

control rendering and expression-based animation with scripts, taking

advantage of Piranha's upgrade from TCL 7.4 to 8.2 in the new release.

Interactive Effects have added more "performance enhancement-type" features

to other areas of Piranha, polishing up and adding to an already

award-winning, and widely used, visual effects system.
