Macromedia, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of Macromedia FreeHand MX, the multi-publishing solution for conceptualizing and designing visually rich graphics for print, the Internet, and Macromedia Flash projects. FreeHand MX includes the streamlined Macromedia MX interface, new productivity tools and panels, improved Mac OS X performance, and increased integration with Macromedia Flash MX.
According to Macromedia, “The inclusion of the Macromedia MX user interface increases efficiency and productivity, by enabling users to work smoothly across Macromedia Studio MX applications. The new Object panel automatically shows all properties that can be inspected and changed for a selected object. Multiple Attributes enables users to apply and order an unlimited number of strokes, fills, and effects to a single vector or text object, which can also be used across multiple copies of an object. Users can also apply live vector and raster effects like bevel, blur, and transparency to objects, as well as quickly reshape graphic primitives while still maintaining their editability. Drag and drop ActionScript navigation commands with the Action tool simplify the creation of hot-linked graphics. Macromedia FreeHand MX is also optimized for Mac OS X to take advantage of the latest features and enhancements to Apple’s operating system.”
Macromedia FreeHand MX is available for immediate download from the Macromedia Online Store at here.
