PRESS RELEASE: Video editing and creation with VideoImpression 2: now for the Mac Popular PC software now available for Macintosh OS X Tiger

Fremont, CA-August 30, 2005-- Today, ArcSoft® announced the availability of ArcSoft VideoImpression® 2 for Macintosh OS X Tiger. The application allows users to create customized home movies using video clips, still images, music, and a variety of special effects.

Already a popular application among consumers using Windows-based systems, VideoImpression 2 offers Mac users all the fun and creative aspects of video editing without the steep learning curve. Usability has always been a defining factor of ArcSoft software, and VideoImpression 2 is no exception.

"Apple's philosophy of creating products that offer the coolest features with the best possible usability is directly reflected in Tiger, and VideoImpression 2 fits right in as a fun and easy-to-use video editor for general consumers."

Audio files (music, narration, etc.) can be added on two separate, overlapping audio tracks, and special transition effects can be added between each video or photo. Projects can then be saved and exported as single video files, ready for sharing.
