Venice, CA - May 19, 2004. Wildform, the leaders in Flash video technology, today announced the release of Flix Pro 4, a significant new version of its industry standard Flix Flash video encoder.

A key feature of Flix Pro 4 is new FLV video output that can be played directly in the Flash Player, streamed through the Flashcom server, or imported into Macromedia Flash. Flix`s FLV output now also works seamlessly with the program`s automatic player output feature, so users can easily add a custom player and a preloader to their new or previously encoded FLV and SWF files.

Other important features in Flix Pro 4 include the addition of an FLV to SWF converter, an updated and easier to use interface, new outputs including screensavers and Linux projectors, new Flash functions such as file security, and new html publishing options.

Wildform CEO, Jonathan Blank, commented, `Flix Pro 4 makes using Flash video easier, more convenient and more powerful than ever.`

Flix Pro`s FLV output offers certain advantages over SWF video. For instance, FLV files do not have the 16,000 frame limit or RAM consumption issues of SWF files, and they provide superior performance when played from a CD -ROM. Flix Pro still outputs SWF video which offers features such as embedded Flash functions and greater player compatibility.

Flix Pro is a feature rich video authoring software that enables users to edit, crop, filter, encode and post their video in their own customized player in minutes. It offers multiple outputs, automated Flash functions, and support for older Flash players going back to version 3, as well as its unique ability to convert standard video into a vectorized animation.

Flix Pro 4 is $149 and is available for Windows. The Mac version will be available within the next 3 months. The Flix Pro 4 upgrade is free for Flix Pro license holders who have purchased within the past 3 months. Upgrade pricing is available for customers who purchased previously.
