A-EON Technology acquires ImageFX
Amiga image editing and digital special effects package
Cardiff, 22nd January 2015
A-EON Technology is pleased to announce that it has purchased the source code and development rights for ImageFX and Cinemorph from Woodall Design LLC.
As part of the sale agreement A-EON has also acquired exclusive rights to the latest ImageFX 4.5 Studio edition for AmigaOS and MorphOS. This includes the updated Image 4.5 Studio manual along with full rights to the ImageFX and Cinemorph trademarks together with a sublicense for the Cinematte trademarks.
ImageFX is one of the leading image editing and digital special effects packages developed for the Amiga. It combines painting, image file format conversion, image processing, and special effects. ImageFX was first released by Nova Designs, Inc way back in 1992 and quickly became the required graphics application for all Amiga owners becoming an integral part of Video Toaster/Flyer owner's toolkit.
Over the years it has received many upgrades. ImageFX 4.0 introduced a powerful but easy to use animation system with support for full colour as well as palette mapped and greyscale animations. The latest version, ImageFX 4.5 Studio, is supplied on CD-ROM and is compatible with AmigaOS , AmigaOS 4 and MorphOS as well as under emulation with WinUAE, E-UAE and Amiga Forever. The latest version incorporates many improved features including new drawmodes, keyframe animation, ARexx scripts together with updated PNG loader/ savers and all of the former PowerStation PowerPC modules including the Lightning PowerPC module. Kermit Woodall, former President of Nova Design, Inc., had this to say, "While all of Nova Design had moved on to other things we always regretted not being able to push ImageFX further and do more with it. We're so glad to be able to turn it over to a new company with exciting plans! "Matthew Leaman, A-EON?s Managing Director added, ?ImageFX has been a leader in Amiga image processing for many years and has a great pedigree. A-EON Technology is thrilled to acquire such a prestigious part of the Amiga's graphics history. We look forward to investing in further development of this application so many more Amigans can enjoy it's powerful image processing features on new AmigaOS hardware.
