Default Cinematte for Macs! Amazing at $95 just for now!

The powerful Adobe Photoshop plugin for dropping out blue or green backgrounds from your photographs is now available for Mac OS X or windows at $99.95!

"Nova Design's amazing Cinematte is a Photoshop plug-in for your blue and green screen compositing needs. By allowing you to flawlessly composite people or objects photographed against blue or green screens into stock photographs, 3D rendered backgrounds, and more, it is perfect for videographers, digital photographers or anyone! Cinematte brings the ultimate power of professional workstation level compositing to the desktop at a bargain price!"

"Some of the advantages of Cinematte are the ability to create composites multi-layered images that automatically maintain fine edge details, hair, and even motion-blurred elements. Even semi-transparent elements like smoke, glass and water composite flawlessly. "

"Cinematte's controls use AI based algorithms to allow you to correct for unwanted variations in the blue or green screen. You can correct for bad lighting, color impurities and more. These controls can be combined to create quick and easy special effects! "
(For Windows and Macintosh Platforms)"

Cinematte Features

. Macintosh OS 8.6 through OS X compatible
. Works with PhotoShop Elements through PhotoShop CS and PaintShop Pro from JASC
. Large preview mode option for detail work
. Uses and supports PhotoShop layers and Actions
. Totally resolution independent - works on any size RGB image up to 20mb in size
. Supports both blue and green screen backgrounds
. Sophisticated color-spill algorithms
. Foreground color protection keeps your colors accurate
. Multiple output options for keyed foregrounds, mattes and more

Is that . Totally resolution independent - works on any size RGB image up to 20mb in size an error? Surely not 20 MB file? Are we reading it wrong or is that a typo?

One thing that concerns me is that has been selling off a lot of software to other companies. Heck, even this software is available to purchase, code and all!

"Cinematte is being offered for sale - this sale is for the binaries, source code, documentation, copyrights and trademarks to Cinematte a high-end Photoshop plug-in for highly realistic photo compositing and matting." So if you are going to buy the rights to the whole program, let me know so I can get a free sample!

In the meanwhile, this seems to be a good offer. Now it says nothing about working with Intel Macs.

So what do you use for your Chroma-keying?
