I just spent $511.00 on a software upgrade.
And I was happy to do it.
First, it upgrades my main video editing software to the highest possible non-HD version. Sells for $1999.00.
Second, it adds Blade for doing DV and resolution-independent editing. Sells for $499.00.
Third, it adds the Boris FX and Graffitti bundle for effects and titling. Sells for $100.00.
