DESCRIPTION

Broadcast quality

MagicSoft CG has a GPU-based rendering engine that supports all SD and HD modes
The graphics is 24 bit (TrueColor) with 8 bit alpha channel (256 transparency levels)
De-interlacing and anti-flicker display options guarantee proper output of images and live video
The engine offers Antialiasing for TrueTypeFonts and Anisotropic Filtering for images profiting by GPU

3D working environment (no layers)?

The objects can be animated by moving, rotating and changing color and transparency and can be dynamically moved on z-axis eliminating the limitations of the layer oriented programs
Rendering for both Preview and On Air is made in the GPU so powerful CPU is not needed
The key-frame concept is used to describe the characteristics in time of an object and can be used to interpolating the?
previous-mentioned characteristics in the time intervals between key-frames

Scripting and Automation?

MagicSoft CG offers the possibility to run application like SMStoTV by scripting
The TCP/IP protocol allows you to control the displaying and content of a project
