A few months ago, we got the Tricaster 850 Extreme and showed you some of the awesome stuff it can do! Well, now comes the brand new Tricaster 855.

On the TriCaster 850, we showed you the animation store. It allowed us to create custom transitions, animations, and wipes between the shots. Now... using that same system, we have brand new TransWarp effects. We can warp video or images into any 3D shape we want during transitions. For example, we can have one video pull off another like like it was a big piece of fabric. Or we can have one video totally shatter into glass shards and reveal another one behind... and the video keeps playing in tbe broken pieces.. And these effects are done in REAL TIME! They're a fun way to up the production level of your show and avoid spending your time in post production.
