ChatFX brings outstanding special visual effects to iChat. Spice up
your chats and make them more memorable with special effects like
those seen only seen in movies and PhotoShop. Effects like bluescreen
(which is capable of showing any movie, tv, video, or animation in
the background of a video chat), twirl, comic book, alien,
interrogation, pencil, vortex, dent, bump, bodyart, facepaint,
fisheye, waking life, bubbles, mercury, on fire, ogre, sepia, sobel,
xray, and many more, are included and any kind of special video
effect can be created. Kids love seeing the bluescreen and other fun
effects. Adults will find it makes video-conferencing a whole lot
more entertaining and a lot less intimidating. Like the CGI special
effects in movies anything is now possible in iChat.

Version Changes in 1.21
– added the ability to change the settings for each composition.
this big change means you can set the chromakey color in bluescreen
easily or the size of vortex or the picture in slideshow or the
background movie in bluescreen all without having to use quartz
– separated preferences into a separate file.
– added many new compositions.

iKey is a utility that can eliminate repetitive actions. iKey allows
creation of shortcuts that perform an action or sequence of actions
each of which can be launched by key combinations, menu, timer, event
or USB devices (many button mice, keyboards, graphic pads and game
controllers). This easy to use macro/automation utility can save
time, typing and hundreds of clicks everyday. Avoid carpal tunnel,

written by Adam Engst is included.
