The Jahshaka Project (www.jahshaka.org), an open source project developing the first complete, open-source, real-time editing and visual effects application, announced the release of the final version of Jahshaka 2.0 before moving to a new source code. This latest version of the software includes new features and enhancements that improve stability and increase functionality.
Simultaneously, The Jahshaka Project is releasing Jahplayer 0.1.0, a professional grade media player capable of playing uncompressed video and image sequences at resolutions as high as 2K and 4K in real-time and featuring a robust set of image analysis tools and basic editorial functions. Jahplayer 0.1.0 is based on entirely new source code that will serve as the basis for Jahshaka 3.0, expected to be released in 2007.
The Jahshaka Project is currently developing additional Jahshaka modules for editing, compositing, visual effects, animation, paint and other functions that will together comprise a complete, customizable solution for digital content creation.
“We are very excited about the debut of Jahplayer,” he added. “It is a powerful, useful tool that will immediately benefit visual effects producers and post production houses. But we are even more excited about the future as other modules become available and the potential of this open source tool becomes apparent to users worldwide.” Under development since 2000, Jahshaka has had more than 500,000 downloads to date.
