dvGarage today announced the release of dvMatte Pro, an After Effects plug-in designed to handle the challenges of DV footage by softening the scaled color channels while utilizing the unscaled luminance channel to regain the detail in the edges. dvMatte Pro is available for Mac and PC versions of Adobe After Effects 5.5 and 6.0. The company says that a version for Final Cut Pro 4 will be available this Fall. dvMatte Pro is priced at US$149, with an early-bird special price of $99 until August 15, 2003.
