Kid Pix Adds Podcasting Support

Jul 6th, 2006 | By | Category: Audio Podcasting, Podcasting Software

Software MacKiev, a developer of consumer and education software, is demonstrating a new podcast-friendly version of its Mac OS X edition of Broderbund Kid Pix Deluxe 3X this week at the National Educational Computing Conference (NECC) in San Diego. A presentation entitled “How To Make Podcasts Using Kid Pix” is running several times a day in the company’s showfloor theater (booth #414).

“It feels great to be helping students get their Kid Pix creations published in a podcast.” said Jack Minsky, President of Software MacKiev. “Parents can then subscribe and view their kids’ work on the morning commute to work. We think kids will be justifiably proud that their work appears on the Apple iTunes Podcast Library where it can be viewed by their friends and relatives, anywhere at any time.”

Careful with viewing that art while driving……

A number of enhancements were made in the version 1.1, most notably the addition of Export to iPod Video functionality as well as import from Garageband, and export to iMovie HD. A number of improvements were also made in the Slide Show area where it’s now possible to play the slides in a continous loop, and to so set the transition timing to advance to the next slide only when music or other sounds attached to a Kid Pix document has finished playing.Requirements and Availability

Software MacKiev’s Kid Pix Deluxe 3X with iPod export requires Mac OS X 10.1.5 or later and a Macintosh computer with a 266Mb processor or faster including Apple’s new intel-based Macs. A free Universal update to version 1.1 is available to current users from Software MacKiev’s Web site. A retail single-user package is available in all Apple Store retail locations in the US, Canada, Australia and Europe for $39.95.
