NetBlender today introduced DoStudio Release 6 which automates the importation of Adobe Photoshop graphics into menu layouts and graphic elements for HD DVD and BD advanced content. Offering full support of Photoshop layer sets, DoStudio empowers graphics professionals to focus on visual design while working efficiently in the industry standard Adobe Photoshop application. DoStudio can import entire screen layouts at HD resolution, or individual graphic elements for placement using DoStudio's layout editor.
"The next generation formats are maturing and creative developers are demanding the ability to use industry standard tools in the design process," said John Harrington, NetBlender CEO. "Photoshop integration was the number one request from our users."
DoStudio automates the process of creating images for various button states such as "highlighted," "selected," and "entered" by recognizing layers in Photoshop files and automatically assigning their properties. Combined with DoStudio's visual layout editor, keyframe animation editor, automatic remote control button assignment, and image list manager, Photoshop integration means significant workflow improvements for next generation DVD development.
Increased efficiency translates into reduced development costs. And DoStudio is built on a proven architecture that prevents memory leaks, unhandled exceptions and other software challenges while maximizing code compatibility across multiple generations of players.
DoStudio Release 6 is available now for download through the DVD One Network website (http://www.dvd1one.net). A DoStudio license costs $99/month.
