As more than 20% of our readers are Mac users (including us), we decided it would be a good idea to have a section just for them.

AUDIO
  • Apple's Macintosh computers are widely used for broadcast audio, but setting it up hasn't always been simple. Now, rather than seeing audio as an add-on, Apple has integrated it into its new, more stable, Unix-based operating system, OS X.

  • Boris RED 2.1 is a resolution-independent 3D-compositing and title effects plug-in for Macintosh and Windows NT nonlinear editors.
