DeBabelizer brings clarity out of chaos
DeBabelizer occupies a unique position in the world of software.
It has long been a favorite "secret weapon" for developers of
Multimedia, computer based video, animation, stills and Web
page design. Until this year, it was only available to
This program is written to take full advantage of the latest
Intel Pentium Pro and MMX chips and all the features of
the Windows operating system.
The real power lies in its ability to overcome one of the
most difficult and time consuming problems for Multimedia
and Web site development. The difficulty is in the size
of quality still, video or animation files.
DeBabelizer is able to reduce the size of an image file
by sampling the color content and writing new palettes, or
by sampling the image and making it conform to a system
or a restricted Web palette. This allows a user to exhibit
8 bit color images that rival the color quality of 24 bit
images. DeBabelizer will also process video and
animation files and accomplish that same magic.
Up to now, a developer had to process each still and
each frame of a video or animation file individually. With
DeBabelizer they can create batch lists to process
files in batch mode. Many Multimedia developers dedicate
a computer to batch processing to free them for more
productive work. Or, as an alternative, they batch process
their files overnight.
Its next most useful function is as a "translator". As in the
bible story about the Tower of Babel, chaos reigned when
people could no longer communicate. DeBabelizer has
a solution; it reads and writes over 90 different cross platform
Program users can access the Equilibrium Web site and
download upgrades that expand Debabilizerís "linguistic" skills.
DeBabelizerís provides basic image editing and improvement.
It will re-size the image, the image canvas, adjust resolution
and scale images, including scaling between PC and Mac.
It also flips, rotates, crops and provides adjustment of intensity,
contrast, gamma, hue, saturation and brightness. It may not
replace an image editor, but it spares you the need to always
have to use one.
It uses all of the Windows 95 features. If there is screen space
to spare, the user can have all of the program functions
available as icons.
There is "WatchMe" to record how you process a file and
then use it to process a batch list. There are also Wizards
dedicated to simplifying the processing of images for
DeBabelizer Pro for Windows 95 and NT is a necessity
for anyone serious about developing images for multimedia.
The ability to reduce the size of video and animation files
is well worth the price of admission.
For anyone suffering the anguish of long download times,
relief is at hand, and it's spelled DeBabelizer Pro.
