Lew,

Don't give up on VT[5]. Our delay in the release of SpeedEDIT had a ripple effect on the VT[5] release. Now that SpeedEDIT is good to go, we are getting VT[5] ready.

Watch and see what happens. I'm going to get the money together by April 1st and this will be the first time that Newtek doesn't actually extend one of their "limited time offers" and I'll miss it.

The Video Marketing team has actually be VERY consistant with our special dates. So far, we haven't extended any specials since I took over 4 years ago. :)

Please note: If the LW special isn't showing yet, it was just added and our site takes about an hour to update so keep checking back.

Maybe this is a silly question but SpeedEdit can import regular still images and assemble them into video, right? I didn't notice mention of that on the features page.

Yup...and you can bring in larger still images and pan them. I've been using SPeededit to do some simple gallery sequences with lots of still photos.

Will SpeedEdit be able to work with HDR images?

Sure it can.

does it only work with tga's? that is all i have used in VT4, was thinking of trying some other format, perhaps someone already knows.

What is the quality like for very slow pans? The reason I ask is that I tried one other relatively inexpensive solution for this, and it produced extremly noticable creeping cells (I think the normal techie term for this is 'quilting'?)

I found out that Canopus Imaginate does a much better job, but it has a huge price for a one trick pony, so I didn't get it.

More detailled definition of slow pans - about 20 seconds for a piont to cross the screen, and rendering out to PAL DVD format.

Without wishing to knock the Newtek sales guys, I'd particularly value user opinions! :D :D :D

I for one am very happy that SpeedEdit is finally out.

However... I just want to comment on the email I got about the Newtek 2007 Tour. I think you should quickly rename it to the Newtek 2007 VIDEO Tour. It doesn't represent Lightwave 3D at all, save as for an engine to run 3D Arsenal on.

Could we please view Lightwave as something that should be advertised? You failed miserably at Siggraph 2006, I was hoping that you could make this tour into a TRUE NEWTEK TOUR. I.e. - ALL your products, showing what they can do. What you have are the Tricaster, SpeedEdit and 3D Arsenal. I saw this show LAST YEAR at B&H. I mean comon, guys. I really doubt Tricaster or 3D Arsenal have changed much.... OK, so the big news is that SpeedEdit is now released. So then call it the SpeedEdit Tour. Or the Newtek Video Tour. Or something else that's clever. But it ain't the "Newtek Tour" because you're not showing Lightwave as a tool. You will not be showing the character animation, the motion blur, the real camera lenses, the 9.2 features and fixes... none of that.

Eh, its late. I'm ranting. Carry on. I just regret that I won't be there this time, for as much as I like from what I've seen from SpeedEdit, I want to see Lightwave goodies more. I mean, maybe demo the VT 5, that might be something at least.
