Curious Software Launch Curious gFx

Curious Software are to announce the worldwide launch of Curious gFx at NAB 2003.
Curious gFx is a powerful integrated paint, rotoscoping and compositing system for video, HDTV and film. As the latest addition to Curious’ product range it is designed specifically to meet the exacting needs of television and film production. gFx combines a sophisticated rich feature set with the intuitive ease-of-use familiar to users of Curious products.
Gareth Griffith, a co-founder of Curious Software, said: "The release of gFx is the next major step in our development of a fully integrated content creation platform dedicated to television and film. It uses the same template based philosophy which has proved so popular in Curious World Maps, and extends our commitment to allow our customers to create better dynamic content on desktop computers - more quickly with less training and absolute consistency of design and quality."
Graphics professionals and visual effects artists in all fields will find that gFx provides an enormous boost in efficiency, and offers countless possibilities for producing ever more striking and engaging content.
For television broadcasters, gFx is the perfect companion to Curious World Maps. Entirely integrated into version 4.0 of World Maps, gFx fits seamlessly into the workflow of current Curious World Maps users allowing them to make full use of their Windows or Mac platform for the efficient and creative production of all types of news graphic in a single graphics environment – at standard definition or HD.
The user interface is designed for fast operation with moving content – including integrated support of real-time video input and output. Everything – paint, rotoscoping, animation and compositing – is entirely integrated, allowing fast creation of anything from content source elements through to multi-layered effects. Users can paint directly in the composite stack – even on transformed layers, or work off-line to build up a library of content elements.
gFx offers a comprehensive toolset of paint brushes, text, shape, cutout and masking tools, rotoscoping, keying and over 100 image filters, colour correctors and effects, all in an intuitive multi-layered compositing and animation framework.
