QuickTime VR Authoring Studio
Announced at MacWorld Boston, QuickTime VR Authoring Studio is a new
professional software tool based on QuickTime VR technology that allows web
designers and multimedia authors to quickly and easily create QuickTime VR
panoramas and objects.

QuickTime VR Authoring Studio incorporates features which are intended to
simplify the production process of a QuickTime VR panorama movie. Unlike
other VR authoring tools, QuickTime VR Authoring Studio helps create
multi-node QuickTime movies containing objects and panoramas.

QuickTime VR is the acknowledged standard for creating and viewing
photo-realistic environments (panoramas) and real-world objects on Mac OS
and Windows computers. Users interact with QuickTime VR content with a
complete 360 degree perspective and control their viewpoint through the
mouse, keyboard, trackpad, or trackball. Using a QuickTime VR authoring
tool, panoramas and objects are automatically 'stitched together' from
digitized photographs or 3D renderings to create a realistic visual
perspective.

Availability/Pricing
QuickTime VR Authoring Studio is expected to be available in November
through retail channels and will be priced at U.S. $395.

QuickTime: The Foundation for Leading Video Software Tools First released
in 1991, QuickTime is the recognized leader in software technology for the
creation and delivery of digital media. QuickTime is used for professional
video editing, website creation, and the development of CD-ROMs. According
to New Media Magazine, QuickTime comprises over 50 percent of the video

QuickTime provides foundation technology for building powerful digital
media tools. Award-winning video software products--including Adobe After
Effects, Avid Cinema, Adobe Premiere, and Terran Interactive Media Cleaner
Pro, as well as Macromedia's Final Cut--are all built on top of QuickTime.

Apple Computer, Inc. ignited the personal computer revolution in the 1970s
with the Apple II, and reinvented the personal computer in the 1980s with
the Macintosh. Apple is now recommitted to its original mission - to bring
the best personal computing products and support to students, educators,
designers, scientists, engineers, businesspersons and consumers in over 140
countries around the world.
