resin matrix.

Software applications that support this ability are currently under development, including Softimage Digital Studio, which offers compositing, 3D paint, nonlinear editing, audio postproduction, and other functions in a unified, integrated environment.
Intergraph Computer Systems today announced that its Intel/Windows NT-based StudioZ Media Production Workstations now offer optimal performance for users of Adobe Systems' After Effects compositing software, which was released for the first time on Windows NT at NAB 1997.
The addition of high-end compositing capabilities for the StudioZ fulfills a key objective in Intergraph's digital media strategy: Total Media Production, or the ability to perform all phases of media production -- 3D animation, compositing, video editing, audio postproduction, and other tasks -- from a single, open-architecture workstation.
