Curious Software releases Curious gFx Pro v2.5

Curious Software has released version 2.5 of Curious gFx Pro and gFx Pro+, its powerful raster paint, rotoscoping and retouch software packages.
The Curious gFx Pro range is receiving plaudits from across the computer graphics and effects community and has been taken up by a number of prestigious film effects houses.
Matt Silverman, Director of Effects and Design at Phoenix, San Francisco, said: "As a visual effects artist working on tight deadlines, there are a few aspects of my job that require time consuming work, which I can not get around. Rotoscoping is at the top of this list and when it comes time to paint thousands of frames or cut articulate mattes I need a dedicated rotoscoping application. Curious gFx is now the main tool that I turn to when we need to get this type of work done fast. The 16-bit raster based paint engine allows me to clone and paint on high-resolution plates without it bogging down like other vector based paint systems, while the b-spline masking tools allow me to cut mattes in a fraction of the time it would take with a bezier masking tool. Curious has really taken professional roto to the next level."
