Digital Heaven Releases DH_Counter 2.0

Digital Heaven has announced the release of DH_Counter 2.0, a major upgrade to the on-screen counter plug-in for Final Cut Express and Final Cut Pro.

DH_Counter is ideal for creating a countdown timer to the start of an event or for coverage of sporting events such as races and against the clock challenges. DH_Counter 2.0 has been completely rewritten to provide many more features and flexibility than the previous version:

* Choice of HH:MM:SS, MM:SS or SS display formats
* Show or hide leading zero and separator characters
* Count up/down to/from custom time
* Show subseconds as frames/tenths/hundredths of a second
* Ability to change the speed of the counter
* Adjustable text tracking
* Monospaced or proportional text spacing
* Shadow and Outline styles with adjustable color, opacity, offset, softness and width
* Box background with adjustable color, opacity and position
* Static display mode for creating start or end holds

Digital Heaven's range of freeware products has now grown with the addition of two more Final Cut plug-ins. The first is DH_Fade - the easy way to create consistent fade in/outs on clips with different durations, and the second is DH_FieldTrans - a must for those needing to apply effects to pre-edited footage containing cuts on field 2.

These plug-ins join a popular assortment of existing freeware products on offer from Digital Heaven which include VideoSpace - a helpful widget that calculates required disk space, Disksomnia - a utility application that stops external disks from going to sleep when using Final Cut and the DH_Grid and DH_Guides plug-ins - both useful on-screen alignment and measurement tools for Final Cut.

Pricing and Availability:
DH_Counter 2.0 is available for immediate purchase from the Digital Heaven online store for $29.00 (USD). A watermarked trial version can be downloaded from the Digital Heaven website. Customers who purchased DH_Counter on or after 1st October 2010 are eligible for a free upgrade. Digital Heaven freeware can also be downloaded from the Digital Heaven website.
