Shake 4 and Photoshop CS2 Add OpenEXR Support

by malducin

Apple officially announced Shake 4 at NAB which among it new features includes 3D multi-plane compositing and optical flow-based retiming, and now supports the OpenEXR file format. Adobe also recently released Photoshop CS2 which includes many new features like the vanishing point, more 16-bit aware tools and filters and 32-bit HDR support including the ability to save out in the OpenEXR file format.

Previously both of these capabilities were only available via plugins provided by the community at the OpenEXR site. Since Adobe just acquired Macromedia you'll find scant mentions of the OpenEXR support. You can read more here:
